Michigan Blasted by Ohio State: Why They Lost and Why Rich Rodriguez Needs to Go

Wow, that was ugly.

The Michigan Wolverines lost to their bitter rivals, the Ohio State Buckeyes, 37-7 on Saturday. Frankly, the game wasn't as close as the score might indicate.

Terrelle Pryor led the No. 8 Buckeyes by going 18-for-27 passing with 219 yards and two touchdowns through the air and Daniel Herron ran for 175 yards and a score as Ohio State racked up 479 total yards against a beleaguered Michigan defense.

Ohio State coach Jim Tressel won his seventh straight matchup against the Wolverines and improved to 9-1 against Michigan in his 10 years in Columbus. With the win, the Bucks clinched their sixth straight (outright or share of the) Big Ten title.

But Saturday's loss was just as much about Michigan's failures as Ohio State's successes. And based on those failures, the subsequent slides will explain why Rich Rodriguez absolutely needs to go as the head coach in Ann Arbor.
