Michigan scares OSU fans after Notre Dame Beating

Thinking they owned the college football world, Ohio State fans have another thing comin' after Michigan beat up Notre Dame at Notre Dame on Saturday. While Notre Dame is always overrated, beating them at their house is always quite an accomplishment. Of course, Michigan State will put another a-sbeating on Notre Dame this Saturday and thus make Michigan's victory seem less impressive. But for now, Ohio State fans, players and coaches have to be sweating and re-evaluating their conference title hopes which, heretofore, had to have been a foregone conclusion, at least, in their minds.

Also of note, Ohio State does not possess the number 1 defense against the rush. Currently, Michigan does, giving up just 21 yards a game. That has to be a blow to their collective psyche.

OSU's remaining football schedule:

Sat, Sep 23rd, 2006 Penn State 12:10
Sat, Sep 30th, 2006 at Iowa 8:00
Sat, Oct 7th, 2006 Bowling Green 12:10
Sat, Oct 14th, 2006 at Michigan State 12:00
Sat, Oct 21st, 2006 Indiana 12:10
Sat, Oct 28th, 2006 Minnesota 3:30
Sat, Nov 4th, 2006 at Illinois 12:00
Sat, Nov 11th, 2006 at Northwestern 7:00
Sat, Nov 18th, 2006 Michigan 12:10

Where does the upset lie?

Michigan's remaining schedule:

Sat., Sep. 23 Wisconsin Ann Arbor Noon ESPN
Sat., Sep. 30 Minnesota
Minneapolis, Minn. 7:00 p.m. CDT TBA
Sat., Oct. 7 Michigan State Ann Arbor 4:30 p.m. ESPN
Sat., Oct. 14 Penn State
State College, Pa. 8:00 p.m. ABC
Sat., Oct. 21 Iowa Ann Arbor TBA
Sat., Oct. 28 Northwestern Ann Arbor Noon TBA
Sat., Nov. 4 Ball State Ann Arbor TBA
Sat., Nov. 11 Indiana
Bloomington, Ind. TBA
Sat., Nov. 18 Ohio State
Columbus, Ohio 3:30 p.m. ABC

Both teams could go undefeated until the big game.

While it is true that Michigan put up 47 points against Notre Dame, 14 of these points came from Notre Dame turnovers.

Michigan isn't quite the offensive juggernaut you U of M supporters so ardently strive to believe.

The only force in the college football universe that can stop OSU from putting 60 onto another team is Jim Tressel and his notions of propriety.

What's that football truism? Oh yea, "Defense wins championships."
