Start ‘Em:Braxton Miller – Ohio State vs. MichiganLast year at this time my gut had a feeling that Denard Robinson would carry his team against their hated rival, and this year my gut has a similar feeling. Miller was not spectacular last week against Wisconsin and it would be natural to be apprehensive playing him against Michigan. But my gut thinks Braxton will put the offense on his back and deliver the Buckeyes a big win against Michigan.STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASIChuckie Keeton – Utah State vs. IdahoKeeton has been on fire and fantasy owners are served an extra tasty match-up with Idaho at home. This should be another week for Keeton’s hot streak to stay alive.STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASIDevin Gardner- Michigan vs. Ohio StateAdmittedly this is a risky play but it is a bit late to be playing it conservatively.  You have made it this far and I think Gardner is a solid play against the Buckeyes.  His ability to effectively pass and run has made it hard for teams to slow him down in the pas...

Marvin Fong, The Plain Dealer Follow @Dan Vasta and like Gridiron Grit on Facebook Who would have thought that the Buckeyes would be 11-0 entering their final game of the season in Urban Meyer’s first season. I had them following the same path that USC did last year which ultimately will lead to a potential No. 1 preseason ranking. Meyer is bringing in a ton of star high school...

The depths of the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Devin Gardner has flourished in three straight starts at quarterback for Michigan. Denard Robinson is healthy enough to play, but can't seem to do more than lightly lob a short pass. So, is there any chance Robinson will go back to being the team's QB on Saturday at Ohio State? "I guess he could," Wolverines coach Brady Hoke said with a straight...

MMQ doesn’t think Buckeyes can stop the Devin-Denard combo

Last week against Iowa, the Michigan coaching staff revealed a twist to the offense which had never been seen before in the capacity that it was used: Denard Robinson and Devin Gardner on the field at the same time, with Gardner under center instead of Denard. Last year, Gardner did get some playing time at quarterback while Denard ran some plays at wide receiver or running back...

Michigan sets sights on 'Beating Ohio'

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The Big Ten added Rutgers and Maryland this week. Michigan doesn't care. Ohio State has a perfect season going. Michigan doesn't care. With the Buckeyes on probation, they can't play in a postseason game. Michigan doesn't care. The school in Columbus prefers to be called "THE Ohio State University." Michigan really doesn't...

Lightning-quick QBs pose problems for defenses

The most potent weapons for No. 20 Michigan and No. 4 Ohio State are undoubtedly their quarterbacks. Pity their poor defenses in the big showdown on Saturday. Devin Gardner and Denard Robinson, who may line up everywhere but behind the center due to an arm injury, are the speedsters who lead the Wolverines' attack. Meanwhile the Buckeyes rely on Braxton Miller, who likes to...
