    This will be yet another emotional game in this rivalry. The 3 Michigan seniors(yes I said Michigan, it's the week of The Game) especially Hart and Henne being hurt, will give gutty performances in their final attempt to beat Ohio State. Hopefully we can stay focused and just play our game. We should be able to take care of business, but everyone knows ANYTHING can happen in this rivalry. If we can contain Manningham and Arrington, I don't see Michigan moving the ball much at all on us. We need to get pressure on Henne at all times to flush him out of the pocket. He isn't a very efficient passer when he gets flushed out. Michigan will probably try to mix in some draw's and play action passes to keep us off balance, but i'm confident that our defense can shut down Michigan's attack.

    Offensively I see Beanie having a big day. The OL will need to get a man on both Shawn Crable and Chris Graham during the run. Those are Michigan's best and only good tacklers on the entire roster. Michigan's DL is pretty soft and I don't see them getting any pressure on Boeckman. With that, Boeckman should have a solid day passing as well. Our WR's will be too much for Michigan's secondary.

    NO MORE MO WELLS PLEASE!! BRANDON SAINE!

    This game comes down to how quick can we get in the endzone and how quickly can we take the crowd out of the game and kill Michigan's momentum.

    Ohio State - 35
    Michigan - 16

    If our o-line can control the front then I see Beanie having a very good day for us.

    i wonder if any other superstitious people, like me, are freakin' out when you guys start predicting scores. i do have to say that i, for one, feel kinda jinxed when i predict a certain score. of course, that's probably just me.:confused:

    I hate making score predictions for the games I am most concerned about. Because in the end I am usually wrong.

    i think the big thing is how our defense is going to respond from last week. this team can't hang their heads when something goes wrong. mistakes will be made in a game like this but it will be all up to the one who takes advantage of it. i see beanie having a big day. i think after seeing this kid at the media conf. on monday. he's ready to get that ball and run with it.


    GO BUCKS!!!!

    Here are my thoughts on the game.

    - Wouldn't it be great to hand Henne and Hart their 4th straight loss against OSU?

    -Dont know how effective Henne and Hart will be. Hart has ankle problems I believe and even if he gives a gutsy performance I don't know if he will be effective. He may start but you can only do so much with a bum ankle. Same is true with Henne. How effective is that throwing shoulder going to be? How far and with how much velocity is Henne going to be able to throw the ball?

    -Bounce back game for OSU? They should be up to the challenge. The defense has something to prove. I think the key is going to het Henne(Mallet) and Hart hard. Make them pay for every throw or yard they gain.

    -Avoid the big play. OSU is more talented than UM. If they don't let Manningham go off then the bucks should be in good shape.

    -Reign Boeckman in. NO more ill-advised deep balls. Get Small into the mix early and keep the UM defense on its heels. Remember the first two games of the season that UM lost? Both were creative offenses. OSU needs to do that as well.

    -Finally need to be impressive. With the way this football season has gone anthing can happen. The problem is that WVU is ahead of OSU in the polls right now. OSU needs to leapfrog WVU with an impressive win over UM and then anything can happen.

    Whether it's a rumor or not I really don't know. In the end I hope he stays.

    I think he's planning to retire win or lose. If loses and doesn't retire, he could be fired.

    It's been 1453 days since Michigan has beaten Ohio State. When we win on Saturday it will be another +368 until they get another shot. Wouldn't it be amazing if we go over 2000 days without a loss to Michigan!?!? :biggrin:

    Don't get me wrong. It would have been awesome to play in the NC again this year. But, I really want to go to the Rose Bowl considering we haven't been there in forever!

    Carrs says Hart is questionable for Saturday:

    From ESPN.com: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/preview?gameId=273210130&confId=5

    This has Michigan fans very scared about their offense.

    BS. I don't buy any of it. There is ZERO chance Hart does not play in this game. This is all just smoke to try to get our guys distracted.

    I think he'll play, but his carries will be limited.
