I think everyone should ease up on the Louisana comments before this gets political. 

Says the first poster to bring the word politics up in the thread.  

Violence in a geographic area is really just violence in a geographic area.  Some areas are large, some areas are small.  In the midst of football season, I think the "what's up with Louisiana?" Comments are a product of two relatively know former football stars getting gunned down in the state.  Don't recall hearing such events happening anywhere else.

Yeah, how do you go from being in the college football playoff and then essentially become Purdue (with a slightly better defense) in 9 months?  Alabama may have crushed that school's spirit.

How great is it that sitting at #5, Michigan and it's fans are seeing a glimmer of light, that their dream 2016 season is still alive.  

They thought they were co#1 with Bama then lost to Iowa......saddened yet still beating their chest

They thought they were the B1G's best then lost to Ohio State.....crying foul and saying they really won

they thought they were out of the playoff race.......but #5 ranking.....they will start to believe that with some chaos, they may have a chance....they will hope and watch.....and they will get beaten down, once again, as chaos will not happen for them

That Texas team, with Vince Young was a different animal.  Many teams gave Texas their best shot, and winning most of the game and were unable to best Vince Young.  Michigan, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Southern Cal (some of the best teams from 2004 to 2005).  How Vince Young didn't win the Heisman still has me baffled.  Texas's defense then was also under rated, they had quite a few NFL players on their roster.

now, if we would have lost to Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl, after the 2005 season, that would have bothered me.

2005 loss in Columbus to Texas, at the time and also with the benefit of hindsight, was a game I didn't bitch about losing.  A bad dropped pass, but players aren't perfect....sometimes we expect the coaches to not make mistakes when they make >$3,000,000/year.  Sucks when a player makes a mistake, but it's a mistake we can understand.

also 

the loss to Southern Cal in Los Angeles around 2008 or 2009....when USC blew our doors off.  I don't bitch about that game. It sucked, but SoCal was loaded and Ohio State was soft.  Instead of seeing it as a bad loss, I saw it as an example of how much better Ohio State needed to get......seeing the progress made by OSU in less than 2 years, winning the Rose Bowl over favorite Oregon made the journey worth it, in a way.

that's all I got, for now.

Michigan will be better than 8-4.  They drink whole milk and have it better than everybody else.

their OOC schedule of Florida, Cincinatti and Air Force could be tricky, but the greatness of Harbaugh's should overcome it.  They have road games at Wisconsin and Penn State. Sparty and OSU go to Ann Arbor.  Yeah, I could see 4 losses.

Comment 27 Nov 2016

  I don't feel the need to insult you, your team or any of its players or coaches to have a discussion about one of the greatest games we've ever seen.   

You just want want us to know that you think Michigan got screwed by the refs, and should of won.......ok we get it...we got it the first 100 times you've bitched about it.....time to quit crying about it, and move on.  

Comment 27 Nov 2016

Makes sense.  

Will say that the Alabama example is different, because they are playing in the Conference Championship game and it is a hypothetical loss.  Ohio State lost head to head, and the committee is going to hear 2 weeks of many people campaigning to get their team/conference represented.

 Hoping you are right.

Comment 27 Nov 2016

You call it venting?  Seems like you are making excuses.    Michigan lost.  May I suggest looking towards the future and start getting excited for your Bowl opponent......bitching about the refs isn't going to get you anywhere, at least not here.  MGO would give you plenty of like company.

Comment 27 Nov 2016

IMO, it will be easier for the committee to exclude an non conference Champ from a potentially crowded field of teams, than it will be to explain how they left out a Conference Champion.    Going into expectation self defense mode and going to agree with you.  Expecting the worst, but hoping for the best.  Hoping Wisconsin and Colorado play winning football next week.

Comment 27 Nov 2016

I think many people had a problem with the DUI.  However, Meyer and Ohio State have done a great job with player discipline.  Comments on an Ohio state themed website from 80 or so fans doesn't make the feelings of the entire fan base.  

Go cry for justice somewhere else.  You won't be missed.  You had no problem saying nasty things about this website while on your recent crusade for Peppers.  Go to MGO with that stuff.  BTW did you happen to catch the scoreboard, yesterday?
