    Taking it to Badger right now, only loss to undefeated and Top 5 Notre Dame.

    Ohio State vs Michigan might become practically a first round playoff game.

    Both have to play Michigan St.

    Call me an idiot but the Spartans are getting one of them.
    I am thinking the team that doesn't line up with a fullback or 21 personal

    I've thought they were pretty good for awhile now.

    If so, Notre Dame should be #1

    I know. Difference is.....In a rock fight Michigan can win unlike Ohio St.
    That is Michigan and Michigan St's identity.

    I saw issues with Ohio St against Penn St buy thought Franklin and their D didn't take advantage of Ohio St's weakness

    Michigan would be undefeated as well with Ohio St's schedule.
    I will be here in November so my words don't mean anything right now.
    But Ohio St isn't going to be 12-0 going into December

    Wisconsin is getting exposed. They look... not great. That offense makes MSU look like Oregon.

    Iowa did it first. They just couldn't get out of their own way to put Wisconsin out to pasture.

    And you've determined that we can't win hard fought, physical football games? We've been doing it for years.

    Said....Ohio St has had issues when their offense has issues moving the ball.
    In games like that what they run at Michigan and Michigan St will eventually wear down the opponents D.

    The problem is keeping Ohio St's RB's contain and slowing down their passing game..

    No one has slowed down our passing game yet, and our offense still hums along even if we have struggled running the ball. Haskins is a heisman front runner for a reason.

    That defense is legit. They remind me of a much better version of Iowa from last year. Kinda scares me. THE game will likely decide who represents the B1Ge in the CCG

    The schedule is such that I can't even begin to think about you guys yet. My brain won't process it.

    It's easy to beat Wisconsin's offense if you have athletes on defense. Literally just stack the box all night because there is no threat of a passing game. Michigan will not be able to do that vs OSU.

    Michigan is very much like LSU this year.

    As long as they run the ball and continue to play good defense, they will be in any game they play.

    No they are not
    Wisconsin doesn't have near the talent that Michigan does
    Put them against equal or better talent and they would fart in their pants.. Watch Ohio State beat the shit out of them

    Thought Wisconsin was overrated going into this game. Not taking away anything from UM, as I think this was indicative of where I thought both teams were. UM was my best 1 loss team and Wisconsin was overrated. They took care of business at home and looked good. OSU should be scared.
