As far as I know, Michigan Man guidelines are as followed

1. Must be from Ohio (preferably) or any State besides Michigan

2.becomes a Michigan fan, to be different from everyone else around you, seeking attention.

3.  Doesn't really care if they lose the game, but rubs it in your face at a high level, if they win.

Just going to sit back and enjoy the matchup.  It should be a good one.  Going in I expect Michigan State to win, because I feel they have a more balanced offense than Nebraska, they are playing in East Lansing, and Michigan State's defense is just as good as Nebraska's (if not better).  What has me most interested, will be watching Amir Abduhlla, to see if he can carry Nebraska on his back, and put his foot in the lead for the Heisman Throphy.  It is also a possibility that Nebraska QB Armstrong can hook up a few times with there gamer WR Kenny Bell and thrust Nebraska into Top 10 territory with a win.  

Going to be a fun game to watch.

Lots of time before any hire takes place.  Sure the dominoes may be getting set up, but they won't start to fall until at least early December...... Maybe even early January, if these MGoBlog posters are correct

i remember scanning that site, and reading their comments about how delusional Penn State fans were in thinking Nick Saban was going to Happy Valley,and they were.   These Wolverine fans think John Harbaugh all but admitted he was taking the not yet open job, 4 weeks into his 16 week NFL season, because he said no.  Also stating Harbaugh's displeasure with the Raven's light suspension of Ray Rice, is the rift that has Harbaugh wanting out of Baltimore.

Looking at the 2014 version of Buckeye defense, it seems, from my couch perspective, that they are an improved unit from last year.  They are not a unit capable of winning a game, by being shutdown/nasty.  OSU's offense still has to be the superior unit, and out score teams to win, against above average/average teams.  Looking at where the defense stands as OSU enters B1G play:

allowing 20 points per game, improved from the 22.6 points per game surrendered 2013

Gave up 370 yards rushing to Navy....... Rutgers held Navy to 171 yards rushing, but also gave Navy 230 yards passing

gave up 200 yards passing and 125 yards rushing plus 21 first downs to the most balanced offense they faced....Virginia Tech has climbed back to a 3-2 record, but they have yet to score more than 35 points this year, even in their other 2 victories against William & Marry or Western Michigan

Totally did what they had to do against Kent State

Gave up 352 yards passing and 4 TDs to a pass first offense Cincinnati

OSU has an improved defense, we can't call it piss poor, as was the case last season, but they still must get much better, if they hope to reach their goal of winning the Big 10 Championship.

I'd be willing to bet $10 Bofuquel is that guy that doesn't bother to flush when he's done.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

You are probably right.  I've picked Michigan and they have kept losing, so I'll do my part and keep picking them.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

I've been 42-17 on non point spread predictions through 5 weeks, here is a link to last week's predictions, if you are playing along, and forgot how you did.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

I don't feel insulted by being called "Ohio".  What is an insult, IMO, is that calling OSU "Ohio" is the best thing that Michigan players, coaches and fans can come up with to try and insult us with.  Their mistaking our SMH response to this attempt as actually being insulted, is insulting.  

In a nutshell, their 2nd grade name calling technique is stupid, on a 2nd grade level, but they believe they are really getting a dig in.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Weis is an arrogant bastard.  His best win at Notre Dame, was the Irish close home loss to future National Runner up Southern Cal, in the "Bush Push" game.  

Heading into the 2006 Fiesta Bowl matchup there were many doubters who thought OSU was going to get schooled by Weis's offense, seeing that he had a Month To Prepare.  PreGame press conference question "Charlie, which do you feel is More impressive, your Super Bowl Rings (for being offensive Coordinator) or Jim's national Championship Rings (YSU and OSU Head Coach)?"  Charlie just smugly smiled and rubbed his Super Bowl rings.

total arrogant ass.

I now have more respect for the AD In Lawrence, Kansas.  

Now, as we shift our sights to Ann Arbor, we wonder what they are thinking and what they are waiting for.  

Comment 27 Sep 2014

No excuses from me, OSU shouldn't have least @ Home to Hokies.  Buckeyes might move up to 18 or so, in next weeks polls.

Comment 27 Sep 2014

If OSU was 43-36 since 2008..... We were 2-3 and our coach wore sunglasses on the sideline instead of a headset, I'd be pissed.  

Comment 27 Sep 2014

Favorite non BIG game, this year.  By basing conclusions, based on actual results..... If Nebrska was an SEC team, they'd be top 10.  Abdullah = Gurley, 

South Carolina lost to Mizzu@ home, which lost to Indiana @ home, that lost to B.G. on the road.   Spin it how you want. #SECdebunked

Comment 25 Sep 2014

This ESPN crew has proven, once again, that they cannot call a game without dropping SEC tidbits throughout, even though the game is being played between 2 teams not affiliated with that conference.  No PAC 12, ACC or Big 10 hyperboles, which what ever..... But they don't even digress into tangents on target audience fitting Big 12 lore and manufactured legend.   

Shit gets tiresome to the ears.... Time to turn the surround sound to CD and play some Old school rap, while watching the game.... 

Comment 25 Sep 2014

I must officially be an old bastard.  With the new uniforms on these teams, and they look ok (helmets do look like bowling balls), if it weren't for the score ticker on the bottom of the screen, I'd have no idea who was playing.

Comment 25 Sep 2014

Is OSU/UC a football rivalry? No.  Tom Tuberville and UC is coming into the Horseshoe thinking they will be doing this

but they'll likely be doing this
