Michigan football coach Brady Hoke and players discuss Nebraska win, Ohio State week

By Nick Baumgardner

The Michigan football team put on arguably its best 60-minute show of the season Saturday in a 45-17 win over Nebraska.

But with roughly six minutes to play in the fourth quarter, 113,718 fans inside Michigan Stadium officially turned their focus forward with chants of "Beat Ohio."

The Wolverines and Buckeyes will tangle Saturday, and Michigan will look for its first win in the series since 2003.

Meyer just said in a pregame interview that he had not even been been contacted by Ohio. With NCAA sanctions looming it seems that getting Urban Meyer is wishful thinking. Maybe you can get Dantonio from Moo U. He's a Tressel boy who can carry on the tradition of playing ineligible players and looking the other way when players violate rules. It's been 10 years plus since Ohio beat Michigan with eligible players. Michigan is on its way back to its rightful dominance of the Big 10. (I refuse to use that God awful new logo.) By the way, an Urban Meyer team has never defeated Michigan. Not even his Florida team with his All-Universe qb, Tim Teabow. And where did you get that nonsense about Kalis decommitting? Must be more wishful thinking since no one else has even hinted at that. Least of all Kalis himself. You really think he wants to go to a university about to be slapped with sanctions? Do you think he wants to suffer a punishment for what others have done (and have been fired for, or moved on to the NFL)? So talk all the smack you want Ohio boy, it ends for you on Saturday.

It's a done deal, weasel boy.

The Urban legend begins at OSU on Novenber 27th. There goes UM's 2012 recruiting class. Kalis has already said he is going to sign with OSU if Meyer is the coach. No Brionte. Enjoy it for another week . The dominance by OSU just got fortified.
