Before the game, the talk from Michigan fans and radio hosts and blog writers was actually about The Game. How to win it, how not to lose it, and how much a win was needed and wanted. And how possible that win actually was. They picked Michigan to beat Ohio State. They believed it was possible. Hell, they believed it was probable. Or at least they…

There is good and bad in every game. Some games have more good than bad, and some games have more bad than good. And some games require an actual running game in order to win. This feature is about acknowledging both the bad and good, or whichever stood out to us most. Borrowing from Ohio State’s practice of handing out Buckeye leaves for good plays, we will do the same.
J.K. Dobbins did something no Buckeye has done since 1968. Justin Fields did something only two OSU quarterbacks have ever done before. And OSU humiliated Michigan in a way they’ve never managed against schools like Purdue, Minnesota, Iowa, or Michigan State.
On Saturday, Ohio State went into Ann Arbor and did to Michigan what they have done to every other team this season, which is pretty much whatever they wanted. The Buckeyes put up over 500 yards of total offense and scored 14 points in each quarter. The winning percentage of those two stats together is probably somewhere around .9997.
Ohio State went into Ann Arbor on Saturday and beat Michigan for an eighth-consecutive year. It was their 15th win in 16 games, and 17th win in the last 19 meetings. Some would call it ‘old hat,’ but if the new hat fits so great and looks so good every year, it’s okay to admire it for its individual beauty. There is no reason to just toss it on your pile of other hats.
Ohio State and Michigan renewed the greatest rivalry in all of sports with Jim Harbaugh’s team peaking and the Buckeyes coming off one of their sloppiest performances of the season. The Game has been owned by Ohio State since Jim Tressel took over as OSU coach in 2001 but at some point you just figure all the stars will finally align for the Wolverines.
In this episode of the Buckeye Weekly podcast, Tony Gerdeman and Tom Orr give their instant reaction from Ohio State’s 56-27 win over Michigan. What went right, what went wrong, what went exactly as expected? They discuss the individual performances, the decision of Jonathon Cooper to play, the Buckeye defense in the second half, and much, much more.
By coaching not to lose, Jim Harbaugh lost yet again. Five years into his tenure, he just made history by becoming the first coach for either program to go 0-5 in The Game.
