I think it's also worth noting that, while Cephus is on par with UM's WR core, the Wolverines had more options on the outside than UW currently has. Between the tackles is the bread and butter at UW, where UM is able to read 3 very talented receivers in open space. 

One of the main reasons why OSU has been dominant is in their ability to quickly make adjustments. Nebraska had a drive. MSU had a drive. UM had a half. UW had a half. Really only PSU challenged an entire game this year, a testament to the PSU staff for adapting to OSU's adjustments.

Long story short: Even if UW throws new wrinkles at OSU, our staff's past ability to identify, adjust, and execute makes me think they can do it again against a team they stack up against very well. If UW gets their TE into the mix, it might take longer to adjust based on evidence throughout this season.

Seeing how I pissed in some mod's Wheaties by creating a thread about this (since closed), I'll post this here as a comment:

Fairly reasonable take re: MGo's Absurdity

Clearly not a UM fan per post history, but great breakdown. Helps filter through the mess I've been readying lately on that site.

I think the delusion starts and ends with the excuses made by this fanbase...

#1 OSU doesn't care about academics

... JH himself says UM admittance and academics for athletes is "borderline"

... UM's average student ACT admittance scores: 29-33

... OSU's average student ACT admittance scores: 27-31

... Northwestern Athletics #1 AAR for athletes, OSU Athletics #2 AAR for athletes, UM #3 AAR for athletes

#2 OSU cheats by paying players

... Former Financial Advisor Marty Blazer admits he paid for UM Football players

#3 The Refs are against UM football 

2019 penalty breakdown: OSU 7 penalties for 66 yards, UM 5 penalties for 38 yards

2018 penalty breakdown: OSU 12 penalties for 150 yards, UM 7 penalties for 72 yards

What else ya'll got? If you wonder why everyone thinks you're crazy, it's because you give everyone else a great place to start: YOUR EXCUSES!

These situations are always difficult and uneasy. Would it be too much to save a courtside seat empty in memory of his brother when MSU visits this year? Competition aside, I think it'd be a classy act and tribute to his rock and support.

You say war criminal, I say lucky recipient of Tricare and a red Dodge Charger with no money down and a 27.6% APR for 72 months.

Read this in a Lee Corso voice and tell me this doesn't ramble like Lee.
