Funny how they forget their 52-14 loss in the 2010 gator Bowl to a 8-4 Mississippi State jugernaut.

If Michigan doesn't finish better than 9-3, then they should consider the season a failure.  3 losses probably means 3 losses to their rivals ND, MSU and OSU.  Hoke would probably be 1-3 vs Sparty and OSU and probably 4 years without a Big 10 Championship.  All of this being speculation without a down of football having been played yet.

Michigan hasn't won the Big 10 in a Decade, if they don't win it this year, and they don't fire Hoke, then we should assume that they are comfortable with their newly ( past 6 or 7 years) earned position as 2nd tier Big 10 school, behind Wisconsin, OSU and Sparty.  To be honest, they group more favorably with Nebraska and Iowa.

I checked the initial post date, after reading.  First thought the thread was bumped, and the OP was getting called out for being a negative Nancy.

When Ohio State was in the after glow of winning its National Championship ( say the 2003 and 2004 seasons) do any of you remember Thinking Florida was in the process of Building a soon to be 2 time Natty winner?  The mix/chemistry of the right coaches and the right players and avoiding injuries is an extremely difficult Perfect Storm to have happen.  You can hope and plan all you want.  You can garuntee nothing.  Over 99% of FBS fails in their attempt to win it all.

maybe it's better to have him spending his free time trying to troll 11W, than mingling with unsuspecting people in the public.

A smidgen of sarcasm present above....

He'll be back, and probably sooner, rather than later.

2004 to Northwestern..... Justin Zwickau helped prove me wrong, I never thought I would ever see Ohio State lose to Northwestern in football

2008 to Southern Cal got ugly quick, in a game that I wanted Ohio State to play well in.  I didn't think they were going to win, but had hoped they would at least show they belonged on the same field.

1994 to Penn State- not often will you see Ohio State lose by 7 touchdowns.

Kijana Carter rushed for almost 1,600 yards at almost 8 yards a carry, won the Rose Bowl by 18 points.  Though Penn State had a few close games that year, they should have at least won a share of the National Title.

The way I looked at it, 1994 Penn Stae was like 2002 Miami Hurricanes  but with a lesser quality defensive unit.  Kerry Collins was Ken Dorsey..... Kijana was MaGahee ( but better).... Kyle Brady was a poor man's Kellen Winslow...... And we know how that worked out against the 2002 Buckeyes.

Comment 21 Jul 2014

Loved the 2006 battle of undefeateds against Michigan.  That was one hell of a team. For some reason I erased most of my memories of that season, after halftime of the Florida Game.

The 2006 season goes like:

Revenge of Texas, in Austin

Troy Smith wins Heisman vs Penn State

Beat Michigan in a game for the Ages

Complete Darkness.....

No Kevin McHale or Danny Ainge

No Paul Pierce or Cedric Perkins

No Bill Walton or Greg Kite

No Big Babby Davis

2 Buckeyes...... Hmmm.... I'll be able to root for the Celtics for onc in my life.  Buckeyes to Bean Town.

Like the Aaron Gibson and Dana Howard mentions.  The Big 10 has been absolutely loaded at linebacker in the past 20 years.  

Lamar Woodley of 2006 was a man amongst boys.  Courtney Brown had 13.5 sacks and 29 tackles for loss with 3 forced fumbles in 1999.  Chris Gamble was also a man amongst boys throughout 2002 ......hard to pass over some of these greats.

Tim Dwight was electric, but would you rather have him return a kick over Ted Ginn?
