Michigan football;Drew Sharp: Bo wouldn't recognize how soft Michigan football has become

U-M's Lewan: Loss to MSU is on us on O-line: Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan and linebacker Jake Ryan talk after the Wolverines' 29-6 loss to Michigan State on Saturday.

He’s in heaven right now saying privately between Lombardi and The Bear in front of the locker-room chalkboard in coaching Valhalla that he’d rather have Michigan State’s team than Michigan’s.And he’d want it because as much as he loved what he built in Ann Arbor, he can’t help but accept that the Spartans have paid rightful homage to his legacy of physical, manhood-defining football.Road losses happen. But Saturday’s in Spartan Stadium was a Michigan loss that struck at the core of the principles Bo Schembechler instilled in this program and to this day serves as its Holy Grail. The Wolverines got obliterated by a Michigan State team that isn’t all that great, but at least is very comfortable in its identity — playing good defense, limiting offensive mistakes and controlling the line of scrimmage.
