Maybe This Is As Good As It Gets

The Ohio State program is humming along at a pace that’s unprecedented for the Buckeyes. They have finished 1st or tied for 1st in their Big Ten division for the last eight seasons. To put that in perspective, Woody Hayes had six straight seasons finishing #1 or tied for #1 in the Big Ten, and Jim Tressel had five (six if you count the aborted Tatgate season). They have also beaten Michigan 15 out of the last 16 meetings, with the lone blip coming against one-year interim head coach Luke Fickell.

Michigan 44, Michigan State 10

That was a beatdown. We’ll get that way out of the way first. The game was closer than that for a while – especially after MSU jumped out to a 7-0 lead – but Michigan pulled away with 17, 10, and 17 points in the final three quarters, respectively. The Spartans ended up with 54 rushing yards and 220 yards overall, while Michigan had 467 total yards, including 384 through the air.

Michigan 24, Army 21

Phew. I saw people mentioning the 2007 Appalachian State game on Twitter. However, I couldn’t stop thinking about the 2013 game against Akron. As the game went along, I felt like Michigan was going to pull it out with a goal line stand or just an outstanding play by the defense. Not because they’re great, but because they’re better than Army. In that 2013 Akron game, Jarrod Wilson ended the game with an interception. In the 2019 Army version, it was Kwity Paye with a sack and a fumble.

Nightly Roundup: March 9, 2019

Jim Harbaugh

Stewart Mandel lists the top 25 college head football coaches (LINK). Unlike his buddy Bruce Feldman, Mandel doesn’t have Jim Harbaugh in the top 25. How does a guy who’s won 10 games in three of the last four seasons not end up in the top 25? I listened to The Audible, Mandel and Feldman’s podcast, and Mandel’s excuse was that the expectation should be higher at Michigan. By the way, Pat Fitzgerald of Northwestern (Mandel’s alma mater) is #17.

Here’s the longer Rich Eisen interview with Chase Winovich:
