It Michigan -more point lead in regulation in the history of the program, 58 points worse than that given to Cornell in 1891.
And while nobody would declare general flop Harbaugh considering how was tempted by his predecessors, it is fair to ask if they could not take Michigan on top of & # 39; this dreadful rendition of Big Ten – against this vulnerable and stirred version & # 39; Ohio State – When will be able to lead to Michigan first Big Ten title since 2004? Or will stick around to stay & # 39; try? The record of his past involving its guards and dashing to the next destination, which must appear much more attractive after today.
In the lexicon defining loss & # 39; Harbaugh in State & # 39; Ohio, this is a different caliber & # 39; implosjoni of a disaster & # 39; four & # 39; & # 39 double overtime; Michigan here two years ago, one Harbaugh's b & # 39; & # toll of 39; dishonest access. On the menu b & # 39; taste & # 39; of & # 39 defeats; Harbaugh that surrounds hand, it will be remembered as the Great performance, the worst defensive performance against state & # 39; Ohio 115th meeting between the schools.
Harbaugh has grown & # 39; this rivalry, which had now found himself on the business side for four & # 39; consecutive seasons. Michigan dummy 10-2, near the little relevance Fans & # 39; Wolverine iddispratament so crave but still seemingly miles & # 39; air away from the rarest of college football.
Michigan lost not only in Ohio Stadium on Saturday. After all, the Wolverines are accustomed to losing the state & # 39; Ohio, strip includes seven & # 39; straight victories & # 39; Buckeye and 14 of the last 15 matches. Only distinct concerns hardly prepared Michigan fight – as the state & # 39; Ohio ħallahom back on sharing & # 39; models, stuffed at the line & # 39; scrimmage and generally looks like MAC school invited to flogging of & # 39; $ 1.3 million in & # 39; September.
This surface & # 39; Michigan will be remembered as a wholesale failure and systemic, debacle in all three phases. Managed by four & # 39; points behind the so-called Revenge Tour designed to destroy ghosts, Michigan will be haunted by this for a long time loss. The final score certainly indicates domination. But do not add to the overall tenor, in fact worse b & # 39; significantly. Fourth & # 39; whole quarter became dance party & # 39; Ohio State, kataskika celebration & # 39; place in the Big Ten title game and the most improbable 11-1 season in college football history. (They will face Northwestern on Saturday in Indianapolis, and this game will be a referendum on whether one dominant performance can erase a season filled with & # 39; erratic ways in & # 39; eyes the College Football Playoff) committee.
The defense & # 39; steeper & # 39; Michigan last cut & # 39; to 318 by Dwayne Haskins, since the state & # 39; Ohio in March & # 39; turned smoothly and & # 39; down to 567 total yards. Michigan waived seven & # 39; touchdown passes all season and left five to Haskins today. The defense & # 39; Michigan left the press box filled with callouses tried shown the depth of their historical ineptitudni. But they also struggled necessarily in other phases.
The greater role of the game came in & # 39; disaster & # 39; special teams & # 39; Michigan, as the state hero & # 39; Ohio Chris Olave become & # 39; half point to block was returned 33 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter.
The offense & # 39; Michigan tried a sputtering mess & # 39; pass slipped, with call hold and quarterback Shea Patterson melting under pressure b & # 39; flaxxa way during his short and strong unity in & # 39; Ole Miss. (He left the game with & # 39; in the second half injury).
This game will be judged through the prism of & # 39; both State & # 39; Ohio was poor this season, it ended as the underdog of & # 39; four & # 39; points in the first place. The State & # 39; Ohio did anything easy this year, to date. They collapsed the flotsam and jetsam of the Big Ten – Indiana, Minnesota and Nebraska. They got sledgehammered by Purdue, 49-20, in & # 39; a game that did not feel close. And needed violence & # 39; almost miracles to overcome the team skjoroż Maryland College Park in overtime of last week.
But with & # 39; any way, facing their best opponent & # 39; season, the state & # 39; Ohio pushed around, ran past and generally removed Michigan. This was & # 39; it was much worse, as the state & # 39; Ohio sent Michigan touchdowns on a gaffe & # 39; special teams from DeMario McCall in the second quarter and twice to goals & # 39; field within the line & # 39; 5-yard experimented with backup quarterback Tate Martell. They also committed 12 penalties for 150 yard.
The defense & # 39; the state & # 39; Ohio unchanged Saturday, but limited big plays and provided just enough resistance to allow the offense & # 39; Buckeyes keep scoring. Sack by linebacker Malik Harrison on the first possession – a & # 39; & # 39 three; out – Set the tone. And the defense on track to be the worst in school history figured out a way to strengthen key turnovers, reducing wonderful Karan Higdon and hold Michigan to just four & # 39; yards per average rush . By the end of & # 39; physical game, Michigan was without star linebacker Devin Bush, who left with & # 39; what seems to have been serious damage.
The State & # 39; Ohio led 24-19 at the time of departure, cushion should have been much bigger if not earnest final 3:18 that saw 24 point total. Michigan went 21-6 with & # 39; three minutes remaining & # 39; in the middle and gray spectrum & # 39; Doom stuck at the stadium that provided the metaphor for the feeling of attachment to the side & # 39; access & # 39; Michigan.
The Wolverines were torched half, despite entering the game with the defense of the country step No. 1. That did not initiate the Haskins quarterback and coordinator Ryan Day, linking aggressive fighting game that has taken the statistical dominance a & # 39; Michigan in the secondary. Haskins ended the first half with & # 39; 222 yards last, the yard is almost 100 more than & # 39; Michigan that is producing every game.
Day is familiar with the coordinator & # 39; Michigan Don Brown, as he played against as a quarterback at UNH, worked with him as coordinator at Boston College and crossed paths with him over the side & # 39; after at least half a dozen times.
Day bevy consistently called & # 39; model & # 39; Early sharing alleviate defense & # 39; Michigan, hitting the wide receivers & # 39; stories & # 39; Ohio State – Parris Campbell, K.J. Hill – early beats. What sets the surprise hero of the game – the recipient & # 39; freshman Olave, who entered the game with & # 39; five catches and picked up two catches & # 39; touchdowns of & # 39; the first half. The first came on a model & # 39; sharing – x & # 39; most? – that older smoked corner Brandon Watson. Second came well & # 39; dusters Olave of & # 39; Watson, but was more than idle route & # 39; below.
By the end, the flub of & # 39; Watson made a note in & # 39; footnote f & # 39; what will be remembered as a complete systemic failure of Michigan. B & # 39; an ideal opportunity to reverse fortunes against their archrivals, Michigan instead sent many thesaurus to look up synonyms for bankruptcy. And the era of & # 39; Harbaugh left with & # 39; so famous as in & # 39; big games the fans & # 39; the state & # 39; Ohio iħaddnuh started as an rivals. Fourth & # 39; quarter, a sign appeared in the stands never asked to leave Ann Arbor – "Jim Harbaugh Forever!" – the final indinni f & # 39; day filled with them.
