TEAMS:
The bad news is our offense stalled in the 2nd half in Columbus and we lost a 26-21 contest with Ohio State that we could have won, should have won.  Could have and should have are phrases more suited to humans than to Wolverines.  What did happen happened.  What “could have happened” and “should have happened” did not happen and it never will happen because the game is over, it’s history and we cannot go back there and make it happen. Football is just a game—tell it to the people crowded into the show in freezing temperatures screaming their heart and lungs out.  Tell it to the millions of other watching on television, the Internet and listening on the radio around the world—that’s right the world.  Checkers is just a game—football is more than that because we make it more than that, even though it started out as just as game.  So you can say, “it’s just a game”, we both know, that’s easier said than believed. All of that aside, what is definitely true and the good news is tha

Questions surround Hoke after loss to Buckeyes

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan fans came away from Saturday's loss to Ohio State with one major question on their minds -- what happened in the second half? Why did the Wolverines abandon the two-quarterback offense that had been so successful against Iowa? Why did Denard Robinson spend so much time at quarterback if he couldn't throw the ball? And, most baffling, why didn...

MMQ still doesn’t know what Borges was thinking

It has been already been said by a number of people, so I won’t spend a lot of time on this. Something about losing to Ohio State doesn’t make me real interested in talking Michigan football. But I suppose it’s necessary to some degree, so here we go. In my opinion, the Michigan coaching staff’s record against OSU is as follows: Brady Hoke and everyone except Al Borges: 1...

Michigan falls in Columbus, loses 26-21

The Michigan Wolverines had an opportunity to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes for the second consecutive year but couldn’t get it done. The Wolverines had a halftime 21-20 lead but unfortunately in the second half the conservative play-calling and missed opportunities along with some defense that was less than stellar allowed the Buckeyes to dominate the half and earn a 26-21 victory...

Michigan's Hoke expects Gardner to get 5th season

Meyer says he wants 'angry' Buckeyes next year

Ohio State's season is prematurely over, thanks to NCAA sanctions. But the lack of a bowl game could serve coach Urban Meyer's purposes next year. Meyer says he will do anything to fight complacency after the Buckeyes went 12-0 this season. To do that, he may just summon up the issue of the bowl ban the school accepted for violations that occurred under deposed coach Jim...

Miller, Simon Claim Top Big Ten Honors

Ohio State got to 12-0 this season thanks to the standout performances of numerous players, but two have made it to the top of the Big Ten. Quarterback Braxton Miller and defensive lineman John Simon were named the league's Offensive and Defensive players of the year this evening.

Miller, Simon Lead All-Big Ten Choices

The All-Big Ten teams came out Monday evening and are sure to stir up discussion. Ohio State's Braxton Miller and John Simon were named league players of the year at their positions, but when it came to consensus first-team All-Big Ten choices, the undefeated Buckeyes were curiously lacking.

Waiting for 13-0

Waiting…   It was an eventfully uneventful game. The hysteria was piled upon “The Game” from the moment the Buckeyes were victorious in Madison, Wisconsin. The week leading up to the game was a “different” one, with Thanksgiving taking a large chunk of the attention, as well it should, but the sentiments were still the same. Urban Meyer put his legendary mark on the Rivalry...

Twelve, Oh & What?

  Here we are, the first Monday of the offseason with an undefeated Buckeyes team and no bowl game in sight.  There were no roses being passed out, no trip to the B1G Title game planned, no thoughts of a BCS Title, there just simply was.  Left with one of the oddest feelings I can remember after any season, undefeated or losing, the celebration was almost numbing in a way.  We...
