It may sound like ancient history, but Michigan's last victory over Ohio State came way back in 2003. John Navarre, Chris Perry, Braylon Edwards and Steve Breaston were the primary participants in the 35-21 triumph.

Since then, Chad Henne, Steven Threet and Tate Forcier have all tried and failed to beat the Buckeyes.

Conversations around Ann Arbor this spring have actually been optimistic. Wolverine fans and past players-alike, already believe in new coach Brady Hoke.
