The Wolverines aren’t the class of the Big Ten any longer after losing to the Indiana Hoosiers, and the question has to be asked as to whether they legitimately a Final Four candidate. This is where we the rubber is going to meet the road. We really don’t think that Big Blue is a Top 10 team, and it could catch up with it over the course of the next few games. Indiana exploited the front court for the Wolverines, and Ohio State has the ability to do the same. F Deshaun Thomas could be the next big man to stymy F Glenn Robinson III, who only put up two points against the Hoosiers. Thomas, on the contrary, is averaging right at 20 points per game this year. The Buckeyes have only had one blemish this year of major note, and that was the loss on the road at the Illinois Fighting Illini. They stuck within three against the Michigan State Spartans, and they beat the Wolverines the first time that these two teams met. This could be an upset in Ann Arbor, and we certainly want the points on our side.

Ohio State vs. Michigan Prediction: Ohio State 71 – Michigan 69
