    Re: OSU vs Michigan -Going All in on the River

    Michigan 21-17.

    Hart runs for at least 125 yards.

    Neither team does much passing, Michigan shuts down OSU's return game.

    Re: OSU vs Michigan -Going All in on the River

    I'll take OSU over UM 28-17.

    Like what RL said, I think Troy Smith will be the difference in this game. Coupling his elusiveness with the ability to throw pin-point passes on the run will make the difference.

    Hart will gain some yards, Henne will have not a bad game, and UM's defense shouldn't catch any knowledgeable OSU fan by surprise. But I think Pittman will gain enough on the ground to keep the UM defense honest. And OSU will get one big play out of Ginn.

    OSU's front 4 defense is excellent and deep, their linebacking is very good, and their DBs are merely OK. As long as the front 4 keeps the run manageable and puts pressure on Henne, OSU will be OK. OSU's DBs have gotten a lot of INTs off of front 4 pressure all year. If Henne gets some time and Hart runs well, it could spell trouble for the Buckeyes.

    But I think ultimately the Henne-Smith matchup tilts the game in OSU's favor.

    My thought:

    I loathe the University of Michigan.

    My prediction:

    Ohio State = Infinity

    Michigan = Negative Infinity

    I think the Defenses will control the game. Yards out of the running backs are going to be difficult to obtain.

    A turnover differential of +2 would easily seal the game for one side or another.

    I think passing yards will be a bit easier to come by than running yards.

    I think Mich D is a bit better than OSUs, but I think OSUs offense is better. OSU has more dimensions it can call on if needed.

    Special teams will likely be a LARGE factor in deciding the game. Return Yards will play a big part in deciding who scores and who doesn't. I don't think you'll see many 12 play 80 yd drives.

    At OSU, my pick is OSU, but not by more than one score. If it was at Mich, I think it would be entirely too close to even form an opinion.

    I'll be stunned if either team can pull away from the other without the aid of turnovers.

    It's funny you say that. I was thinking about this the other day, and truth be told, if this game was at the Big House, I think it would be a bigger advantage for OSU. The field conditions at the Big House are excellent. Perfect for a really fast team like OSU. The sloppy field at the Shoe might slow OSU down a little, that helps UM, IMO. Obviously, playing in front of your home fans helps, but as far as field conditions, I think playing on OSU's sloppy field helps UM.

    I don't know who is going to win so i won't give a prediction - but I will say if Michigan wins I will be so freakin happy I will head out to the nudie bar and drop some serious coin on some lucky ladies.

    And I'm not even a Michigan fan.

    Early weather forecasts predict Sunny and 47 in Columbus. I also can't believe that the loser of the game will be disappointed in the Rose Bowl.

    I could see Michigan taking the first 3 quarters - but the score being even. Ohio State pulls away enough to win. Then, bring on Rutgers!

    I wonder if a game that resulted in two undefineable numbers would crash the BCS computer programs?

    IIRC, IEEE floating point format can represent both positive and negative infinity values.

    01111111100000000000000000000000 represents "positive infinity'', a pseudo-number that indicates that some unrepresentably large quantity was generated by an arithmetic operation.

    Changing the sign bit to 1 yields a representation of negative infinity, an indication of a similar problem at the other end of the range.

    Ya know, I almost said that.

    OSU put in another brand new field after the last home game and I have heard from people that have been in the Shoe in the past week that it's looking very good. This field actually had about 2.5 weeks to root without constant rain and frost like the previous field they put in earlier this year. I think the warm weather last week really helped out. That being said, if it rains a lot this week, it could still be sloppy because it is still only natural grass. They do have tarps they put over the field so hopefully they can keep it dry.

    Barring a really rainy week (which is forcasted later in the week) the field should hopefully be great.
