I understand they statistically look good last year but they also gave up 34 points to a horrible OSU offense.
As long he is still in the game. The Bama defense may just break the dude in two!
I get what you're saying, but for me, I would enjoy beating an 11-0 Michigan team in overtime 1000 times more than I would enjoy beating an 0-11 team by 49 points. I also believe it would be much better for our program.
I hear what you are saying and it makes sense, particularly if you had a magic wand and could select the scenario that you wanted. Real life doesn't work that way and regardless of circumstances surrounding the game.....you go out and get the win!
Win it over scUM, no matter what! For that I am ALWAYS happy and not willing to parse the wins. They are all equally as good when the home team takes down the dreaded beast.
It's just like beating the Russians in ice hockey back in the early 80s. Did we care whether we scored to win by one or beat them by a thousand? Ah no. We celebrate that win to this day because it was a win over the damn Russians... our nemesis.
Just win baby win!!

It will not be relevant if it is like this ... comeon man. Seriously? I understand there are people in each fanbase that hope for each other to lose but if each fan gets their wish and both Michigan and Osu suck going into the game, how long do you think it will actually be relevant?
I am in the minority as some Osu fans here that hope we are both undefeated going into the game.
What is sweeter? Beating a 0-11 team or an 11-0 team ... Hmmmmm? I wonder
Edit: Look no further than this thread. I can't imagine a thread being the same if Michigan was 0-11 in 2006
One of my favorite games Ive ever watched

For the record, I think it will take a perfect game to win and expect to lose. I did manage to get a sig bet with a Sparty fan, who you may have noticed have been puffing their chest recently.
I tried to get him to agree to a bet that Michigan would not lose by 40+ points as they did haha but managed to settle on a 17.5 point spread.
Good or bad bet?

Better than you'd get at any sportsbook. The line is Bama -12.5. You're getting way the best of it.
are you looking for the Mike Doss bobble head? or is that supposed to be a question for me?
MEMO TO FICKELL: DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Nasty I understand what you are saying, but I believe this is 1 game that would be huge for the B1G to win. (Yes I said B1G, not UM to win). I like most will not root for UM, but deep, deep, deep down want them to knock of Bama. Just think of the upside this will give to every other B1G team. I know every other game UM plays we hope they sh%t themselves, but this is 1 game we need them to win. Look at it this way: if it was mid-tier or the lower teams in the SEC (No I wouldn't root for them) but if it's against the top dogs in the SEC - yes I want the B1G to get a big win against the projected NC teams.
I will say that I'm torn between the 2. I want the B1G to win NOT SCum. I want Bama to knock D-Robs braids from the back of his head to the front of his face and make him look like a member of ZZ Top. But I do want to beat a SCum team that beats Bama and goes un-defeated. I will watch the game and cheer when Bama lights it up, but will also just lazily put my arm up when SCum scores............know whutta mean???

+1.fat boys from ohio,why in gods name would you root for that fat piece of shit,plus any other kid that went from ohio to play up their.
I understand completely what you are saying. However, I just don't agree with you and for me that's okay. This is all about opinion, personal theories and stances. My position is just fundamentally different.
Dude I am just cut from a different mold. I ain't never gonna root for Michigan and that's that. No matter the implications, who's on that team or even if sweet baby Jesus was a starter for that club. Not that I believe GOD would be that jaded, but my position is my position.
I don't care about the records, the "ideal" win stuff or how this helps the B10 as I couldn't care less.
Let me just be plain and clear on this one:
I DON"T GIVE A DARN ABOUT THE WHOLE STATE OF MICHIGAN. I WILL BE ROOTING FOR A BLOW OUT AT THE HANDS OF THE NECKS DOWN IN ALABAMA!!
When they win 50-3, you will see me in the crowd clappin' and dancing a jig!!!
I am a Buckeye fan and this ain't conditional. I ALWAYS root and advocate for S&G wins and losses by scUM..
Plain and simple..

Oooohhhhhh......we DON't give a DAMN bout the whole state of mmeeeeeccchhigan...the whole state of mmmeeecchhiiigan...
+1. I dislike Alabama but I up until now I didn't think this would be possible in which I hate Michigan more than ever ! Their dbag fans are high & mighty after finally beating OSU and Hoke's antics & lack of respect for OSU has increased my hatred for these yahoos !
I hope Bama curb stomps them 50-0 and I will enjoy watching...

Every true OSU fan should root for Michigan to win every game and be rated really high when they play OSU and then, of course, hope for OSU to blow them out. I say this for two reasons:
1. The game will then be more of a national game if the two teams come in fighting for B10 and National Championships (remember 2006) and the B10 will be perceived as a great conference.
2. And this is by far the most important. Blowing out an undefeated Michigan team provides the greatest humiliation to them.
Go Michigan! Beat everyone until the last game of the year.
I live in SEC/ACC country. I have to cheer for the scumbags.
