“When Brady Hoke was hired at Michigan a year ago and defeated Ohio State in his first opportunity, there was talk about how the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry was back. When OSU hired Urban Meyer, the talk intensified. While this season hasn’t developed the way Michigan had hoped, there is plenty of reason to believe another golden era of The Game is on the way. Both coaches are from Ohio and understand the rivalry, and Hoke has an appreciation for what Ohio State brings the table as they prepare to meet Saturday.” [Jeff Svoboda/Buckeye Sports Bulletin]
This OSU offense-Michigan defense focus was something I mentioned in the numbers yesterday: “The focal point for Ohio State’s opposition has centered on quarterback Braxton Miller. From Miami (Ohio) to Wisconsin, the dual-threa...

The Michigan Wolverines had an opportunity to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes for the second consecutive year but couldn’t get it done.

COLUMBUS, Ohio Michigan lost something larger than a game here Saturday.
Brady Hoke lost a chance to get a leg up on Urban Meyer. Winning two straight in the Ohio State rivalry hasnt happened for the Wolverines since 1999-2000, but it was there for the taking at Ohio Stadium.
All Michigan needed to win was one second-half touchdown or even two field goals. Instead, it got blanked...

“I brought you a little something.”
‘Twas the Night before Michigan
And all through the Land
Not a Buckeye was stirring
Not even the Band
Urban was watching
Film for “The Game”
While Coach Brady Hoke
Was listening for “KFC” to call his name
Braxton was ready
Running plays through his head
While John Simon could barely
Stay in his bed
The biggest game for the...
