Oh my, how far the once mighty Spartans have fallen. After getting hammered at home by Wisconsin, they lost to lowly Indiana on the road. And now they were just trashed by unranked BYU -- again at home. Yet they somehow managed to beat Notre Dame earlier in the year. How bad are the Irish?
Meanwhile, the bar had been set for Michigan. Just last week Ohio State murdered Rutgers to the tune of 58-0. Now it was the Wolverines turn to see how they'd fare against them. It should be noted the Buckeyes were at home against Rutgers. Michigan was on the road.
In a beatdown of all beatdowns, the Wolverines rolled to a whopping 78-0 victory -- their largest margin of victory against anyone since before WWII. 78-0? Are you kidding me? Wow. It was so one-sided Michigan pulled their starters after the first half. It didn't seem to make any difference. Back at ya, Urban Meyer.
So Rutgers wanted to play in the Big 10 -- eh? Hope the money's worth it because this is getting embarrassing. Two games and coming out on the wrong side of a combined score of 166-0? Sure, OSU and UM are both great teams, but can anybody possibly be that bad?
Given the above it seems almost a given Michigan will finally be able to avenge some of their recent losses to Michigan State when they meet in East Lansing in a few weeks. But ya never know about that game. Strange things, even miracle plays, have been known to happen.
Assuming they both stay clean, the build up to the Michigan-Ohio State game at the end of November should be really something.
