Yes, when struggling is going into THE GAME with an opportunity to beat your rival, claim a division title, going to Indianapolis if you win for the conference championship and to insert yourself into the playoff picture. Sounds like we've been struggling for two decades.

And here was his preview:

On offense, Michigan is going to struggle at first, but get their groove going on this subpar defense that the Buckeyes have. Karan Higdon is going to able to break out for many 15+ yard runs as the offensive line is going to create holes with ease. Shea Patterson will have a fully functional Tarik Black now and the Buckeyes secondary won’t have answers for all the weapons Patterson has in the passing game.

On defense, Michigan shouldn’t have trouble creating pressure on Haskins, with or without Chase Winovich. When Haskins gets pressured, he makes more mistakes and he’s only thrown two interceptions in one game this year and he’s about to do it again. The secondary is going to create problems with their lockdown coverage, something Haskins hasn’t seen all season.

The weather could be a big factor as there is a 90 percent chance it will be raining on Saturday and that could affect the passing game on both sides, which is going to hurt Ohio State more as Michigan is more of a running team and Ohio State has struggled to run the ball constantly this season. Another factor could be how Meyer is on the sidelines. If he was struggling against Maryland, how is he going to react when playing Michigan?

Somebody's crystal ball was all fugged up! 

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

The Michigan football conference?

One would think that a prerequisite for being an football elitist would be to have an elite football team 

I saw Ryan Day hang 62 on Michigan...His hair was perfect.

Go Buckeyes Beat Michigan

Agreed. 

Or maybe win the "Michigan football conference," something that hasn't been done in 14 years. Matching their longest conference title drought.

We could bring back the old Legends, Leaders and for a Michigan conference we could add losers.

The best part is that they all keep saying, "Wait till he gets all his players". Heard that song with Rich Rod and then Hoke.  Wouldn't he already have "his" players by year 4?  Meyer won a NC with Tressel Ball players.

Although this is funny, you all need to read this if you haven't. Being alive during the experiment called the Cooper era I can relate.

Tabloid journalism at its best. Sad thing is the author wasted a long time putting that bullshit together. Pretty typical though. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

My god. That was the worst thing I've ever read. I thought maybe it was some middle school kids with a blog at first, but, according to the bio, the "author" is actually a college graduate. Central Michigan or something, but still. Grammer was horrible, word choice was assinine, style was... is "shittastic" a word? He used the word "would" 43 times, as is, "Ohio would do this" or "Hairball would go on to do that." I also liked how we "took a step back" in 2013 with a 13-2 record. TTUN fans would soil their pants for 13-2 at this point. It is everything that is wrong with the internet. I need a shower. But you can't argue with his conclusions. It really is turning around for Crazy Jimmy, as the whole Big 10 is running scared. Mostly because he's got his shirt off chasing them with a jug of milk, but whatever.

Didn’t it read like a parody? I honestly went back up top to find out if one of our good writers was actually on it or to see if had a National Lampoon credit.

I believe "shit-tastic" is hyphenated. Otherwise yes it's a word.

I hope knapp was not paid by the word. This article is an example of what was once called yellow journalism and could now be referred to as brown journalism.

Yikes. Even in massive Buckeye takedown, morons will be morons. I will go on record anywhere that the revenge tour was stupid. That in itself was arrogant.
