Ohio State beat Michigan, 30-27, last year in a double overtime instaclassic capstoned by Curtis Samuel.
You remember it. I remember it. Everyone with a functioning cerebral cortex remembers it, as it's an undisputed fact.
Or so I thought until about 20 minutes, when a bombshell of Michigan delusion exploded on my timeline thanks to Michigan's best running back, Karan Higdon, who finished last year's contest with three carries for five yards.

That's a spicy take, even for a Monday morning. He wasn't alone, either. Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst said he will go to the grave thinking J.T. Barrett was short on that fateful fourth down call (note: He wasn't):

The bitterness extended to Wolverine defense end Chase Winovich, who took issue with Ohio State Highway Patrol protecting Horseshoe goalposts more than the opposing team and described his encounter with a "roly-poly" Buckeye fan in the aftermath fracas:

Sounds like Michigan won't lack for motivation despite only playing for fourth place in the Big Ten East this season.
