The interviews about being undefeated an bowl ban. I guess I don't know that they feel like that, I just wish their answers to questions were more along the lines of "we're not worried about bowls it's Michigan week". Know what I mean. If our team is focused I'm extremely confident they win. If they are looking past Michigan an predicting the AP rankings after they go undefeated they could get blind sighted.
I am only nervous because I see more articles and threads about bowl bans, AP polls and Big 10 championship games than chatter about The Game. Lots of folks think this is a gimme since we are at home and with Urban in tow. I see OSU winning in a similar close, high scoring game like last season.
I was there in 1996 when we were undefeated 17.5 point HOME favorites and lost to scUM, so I never ever look past them.
No way John Simon lets this team lose at The Shoe on his last day wearing scarlet and gray!!
i feel similar, which makes me uncomfortable. Add in the general feeling of the fanbase that this will be a cakewalk, and i'm praying the focus level at the Woody is higher than everyone outside of it.
Michigan's best win this year is against 8-3 Northwestern
Their other wins:
Air Force 6-5
Michigan State 5-6
They have yet to beat a good team, unless you consider Northwestern a good team.
We've beaten 9-2 Nebraska, 7-4 Wisconsin, 7-4 Penn State, and 8-3 UCF.
No, you're not the only one. The Michigan fans are nervous, too.
Thanks for the reply. I asked because I haven't heard to much, if any, banter along those lines.

Michigan has been playing its best ball as of late. If Braxton can throw the ball accurately Ill be happy. If hes all over the place and indecisive like Wisconsin it could be a very rude awakening Saturday.
That was one of Coopers better teams too. I was sick for a month. Cost us a national championship

To be honest the very second I found out we were bowl ineligible I counted this game as a WIN! No f'ing way is Urban losing his first game vs Michigan and couple that with the fact it's the last game of the season for the seniors and the team essentially being their bowl game an there is no way they lose. I said 10-2 at worst and 12-0 at best at the beginning of the season.
Indeed they are !
But Urban doesn't play. And Urban was also our coach for the Wisc. game and allowed the offense to lay an egg. Anything can happen and Urban is only human. I know he will put everything he has into winning the game, but I am still nervous.
