run, which would have been a

Pryor completed three passes

carried the ball 17 times for 176

win.
THEY'LL BE BACK: Seven in
a row, nine of the last 10 times,
Ohio State has beaten Michigan.
The Wolverines' ineptness
since Michigan coach Rich
Rodriguez took over in 2008,
in particular, has drawn more
attention to the lack of parity.
Ohio State has outscored Michi-
gan 100-24 in the three losses
under Rodriguez. The Buckeyes
haven't dominated Michigan
over a three-game span to that
degree since the 1930s when the
Wolverines were shut out four
years in a row.
The sentiment in the Ohio
State press conference after the
30-point win was that Michi-
gan's always a tough game - and
that the Wolverines will bounce
back.
"Michigan is among the elite
programs, and will be," Tressel
said. "Their record will reflect
that, over the course of time. You
know, we all have our ups and
downs and periods and so forth.

said. "What do you want me to

hands with all the Buckeye fans

wish we would've played better.

... There's constantly changes.
But Michigan will be back. You
don't have to worry about that."
Tressel has yet to experience
the "downs." Saturday's win
clinched the Buckeyes' sixth
straight Big Ten championship.
He holds a 9-1 record over Mich-
igan.
MOVE OVER HART: Even
though sophomore quarter-
back Denard Robinson missed
time with dislocated fingers on
his non-throwing hand, he still
managed to run through the
Buckeyes' defense for 105 yards.
Not only was it the second
time that Ohio State allowed a
100-yard rusher all season, but
Robinson's 1,643 rushing yards
pushed him past Mike Hart for
the fifth-highest single-season
total in school history. Robin-
son is just 31 yards behind Chris
Perry at No. 4; 60 yards behind
James Morris at No. 3; and 90
yards behind Anthony Thomas
at No. 2.
Tshimanga Biakabutuka ran
for 1,818 yards in 1995, includ-
ing more than 300 yards against
Ohio State that season, and holds
the top spot in the record books
- Robinson is 175 yards away
from his mark. Robinson just

his total.

would've executed better. I'm
going to be mad for a while, then
we'll move on to the next one -

think about it a little bit, which
you should. But you can't replay
