Moral of the story, it can always get worse!
Three weeks ahead of The Game, Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown had a warning for the Ohio State offense that cut Michigan apart for 567 yards and seven touchdowns.
"They better be careful now because we’re hitting our stride too," Brown told The Wolverine. "This is a two-way street, and I know our guys will be ready in three weeks."
They were not ready in three weeks. In fact, it was worse this time around.
Ohio State scored eight offensive touchdowns and put up 577 total yards on offense as the Buckeyes blasted the Wolverines for the second-straight season, winning 56-27.

J.K. Dobbins and Justin Fields were responsible for most of the carnage on Saturday afternoon as the tandem dominated the Michigan defense all game.
Dobbins rushed for 211 yards and four touchdowns – both career highs – adding 49 yards through the air. Fields, meanwhile, threw for 302 yards and four touchdowns, topping 300 yards for the second-straight week, and also just the second time in his career.
It was an offensive onslaught once again, but this time it was on Michigan's own field.
