Well, Conner freakin' Cook & the best defense in the country.

Braxton Miller:  0 B1G Championships, 0 BCS Bowl wins, 2 Silver Footballs, 2-1 vs. UM as a starter, kinda injury prone

Denard Robinson:  0 B1G Championships, 1 BCS Bowl win, 1 Silver Football, 1-1 vs. OSU as a starter, kind injury prone

So, yeah...

"Little bit of a talent problem" is the understatement of the day.  The fact that they've gone 1-2 (and been competitive both losses) against OSU's roster full of 5-stars the past three years is nothing short of amazing.

Don't know if it was mentioned above, but a ton of the anti-Craft sentiment's gotta come from the verbal fellatio he receives from play-by-play guys.  Every.  Single.  Game.  The "Brett Favre Effect," if you will.

UM winning the B1G outright for the first time since 1986 on Brady Hoke's favorite unofficial "holiday?"  Fitting, that.

After we win, I can't wait to hear ESPN stuttering and listen to the wild and crazy excuses.

I'm well aware that the mystique of "ALABAMA" is much better than actual Alabama, but OSU's two best wins last year were Wisconsin in Columbus and... uhh... at Michigan?  Maybe Iowa in Columbus?  I think one of Ramzy's points was that while Urban's obviously a great coach & recruiter who has them headed in the right direction, OSU's 24-2 the past two seasons is just about as empty as 24-2 can possibly be.

I never even considered Title IX-related ramifications.  Two things...

A)  I can't believe a sport that almost solely exists to produce revenue and uses 85 full scholarships has to be balanced out on the female side.  Amazing.

2)  As someone who played a non-revenue sport in college, I had absolutely nothing in common with football players & just about everything in common with 90% of the female athletes on campus.  Yet, according to equality-type stuff, I'm essentially a football player.  Again, amazing.

Much like 99.9% of everything the NCAA does, the current 85 scholarship limit is outdated & completely broken.  It practically invites attrition, which is idiotic; retention should be the goal.  Don't remember where I read it, but why not institute a hard cap of 25 scholarships per class with no overall max?  Kids benefit in that more of them get a "free" education, and they can't get their scholarship yanked for oversigning-related bullshit.  Coaches benefit from getting a larger roster.  What's not to like?

The problem with this is that preseason rankings are based on a school's reputation more than anything.  Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Alabama, Texas, USC, etc. are ranked EVERY year in the preseason simply because they're Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, etc.  Michigan will go into 2014 ranked somewhere in the 20's despite a two-year stretch of 15-11.  Voters don't watch them play, they just see "Michigan" and write them down somewhere using the logic, "Oh, Michigan, they're good and stuff."  Same with every other "blue blood" program.
