[Postgame Thread] Michigan Defeats Ohio State 45-23

  1. He's been doing it for the last two seasons. He deflects the onfield questions to the player he thinked (edit: yeah, I actually writed "thinked", what of it!?) did the best that game. It's terrific, I love it. I think the pandemic (and some other events, going back to the flag he got in the 2016 osu game) caused a major shift in his psyche. He's realized that it's not good for the team for him to be the focus of attention. Focus on the players.

  2. Having your #4 WR switch positions and then become arguably the best player on the defense is such a huge reason Michigan was able to go undefeated this season.

  3. Cant sing his praises enough his coverage was on point and his TD breakup swung the momentum in such a palpable way

  4. We were screaming that the entire game. Every touchdown was a defender getting beat deep. How do you not adjust after the first 3 times?!?!?

  5. OSU went 3/3 on third downs on their first drive. After that drive they were 2/13 on third down. The Michigan defense gave up yards all over the field but was incredible in high leverage moments.

  6. Every game when he gets approached or goes into the news room he says nothing and puts up the player of the game. The players love it, it forces the reporters to focus on that players performance.

  7. My family always jokes about how no matter the question, his post game interview response is “Well you should really talk to this guy” while pulling in one of his players so he can leave.

  8. Of all the teams we've had over the last 20 years, this one (and to a lesser extent last year) have been the most agile in game-time tweaks and adjustments. That has been, in my opinion, the biggest strength of this team. I mean, 3 points after the half? Give Minter a fuckin raise.

  9. Ryan Day really came out with the “there’s no way they can beat us the way they did last year” approach.

  10. The most impressive part of the day is that Harbaugh was willing to abandon the run game in the first half. He is normally the most stubborn motherfucker on the planet (often for the better). Attacking this Swiss cheese secondary was 100% the correct call though. Great game plan and then it opened up the run game for later. GG

  11. I had zero expectation the game would go the way it did after the first quarter. What a tale of two halves.

  12. My entire Michigan fandom had been suffering at the hands of Ohio State. Now it’s our turn to have a streak! I love this team. I love Jim Harbaugh. I love JJ McCarthy. I love all of them. The way this team just played this game was impeccable. And especially with Blake out. JJ stepped up in the pass game big time. The play calling was gutsy and not typical 2016-19 Harbaugh. This team is for real. So proud to be a Michigan fan today. Hail to the Victors! Go Blue! Onto the Big Ten Championship and CFP!

  13. Late in the 4th, the broadcasters were talking about Michigan being an anaconda and slowly strangling the other team. I was wondering whether some producer had heard about the ferret posts and made it a little more TV friendly, or if it was just a coincidence.

  14. Whenever they were showing Michigan outscoring opponents in the second half 116-3 (or whatever it was) *before the Illinois game all they kept saying was "wait until they play Ohio State".

  15. Michigan came over to Ohio State's house for Thanksgiving dinner then shit all over the table and left without a word.

  16. Imagine you’re Ohio State. You hype up a revenge game in Columbus for a whole year. You retool your entire defensive staff to focus on stopping Michigan. And Michigan loses their Heisman caliber running back for The Game. And none of that ends up mattering as you somehow lose by a bigger margin than last year.

  17. Absolutely. And all talk of the win being a fluke, of Michigan not deserving of the playoff spot, of Ohio State coming back to assert their usual dominance.. Silenced.

  18. If you think about it, he is truly a major reason why we won. Without Corum this year, Day probably doesn't idiotically run Engage 8 every play.

  19. Kinda shocked it turned out like almost all our games this season. Legit did not see that coming. The ground game even came back!

  20. Wow.. after watching this Iowa can't say we never did anything nice for them. Next week might be brutal for whoever has to play Michigan.

  21. Now that he's been backing it up, the "some people were born on *third base and think they hit a triple" line is one of the GOAT shit talking lines lol

  22. In Columbus, without Corum. Felt like a weird game and Michigan broke tendencies repeatedly. That’s a great game by the coaches.

  23. After having less than 20 yards rushing at half with Michigan trailing 20-17 (those 17 thanks to 3 long throws) the Michigan offense exploded and outscored the Buckeyes 28-3 in the 2nd half. Absolute masterclass of a game called from Harbaugh.

  24. Jim Harbaugh really beat Ryan Day’s ass, called him a fraud nationally, and then beat his ass even harder the next game 💀💀💀💀

  25. Second year in a row we've been out-coached. Michigan has been better conditioned and better prepared for this game both times. We made so many dumb mistakes that they capitalized on. I hope the staff spends the next month really reflecting on their failures before a bowl game, because they failed these boys today.

  26. Yeah you have no idea how elated I was to watch your offense nonchalantly sashay your way down the field there late in the game. I just watched those seconds tick off the clock one by one.

  27. I don't know. Last year was magical in every aspect. The snow, Hutchinson breaking the school record for sacks, the atmosphere. Even though we lost in the playoffs that game was perfection to me.

  28. Michigan runs the B1G until proven otherwise and I hate to admit that as an MSU fan. What an incredible win by them. Honeslty think they have a real shot at the Natty this year unlike last. Also, Ryan Day is a choke artist and should be ashamed (Im just glad I can shit on a coach that isnt my own).

  29. It’s hard to put into words the happiness after so many years of losing this goddamn game. Winning two in a row is just pure delirium tbh

  30. So my grandpa was the one who taught my family our love for Michigan. Went there back in 50s, sent 2 kids there, and then 3 grandkids. My earliest memories are with him watching games.

  31. Literally earlier this season a bunch of OSU fans on this sub assured me they also didn't like Urban and we're glad he was gone 🤣

  32. You run for two long touchdowns to put the game away like that and you can say anything you darned please in that post game interview.

  33. Since Ryan Day said they were going to “hang 100” on Michigan, OSU has been out scored by 36 points in 2 games.

  34. HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT

  35. Absolute respect to Michigan. I don’t think anyone (myself included) gave them a shot in this game, much less a blowout win that may have cost Stroud a Heisman (dependent on the USC game of course). This game probably even knocked them out of CFP contention.

  36. Bush, wtf you talking about jj having only a 50% completion percent and that it hasn’t been good?Jj is leading the country in completion percentage (or close to it). Completion percent wasn’t his problem ever.
