If they're focused on Illinois right now then they have a problem because it's Wisconsin coming up.
And I'm telling you guys, I smell a rat this season in Michigan. I seriously will not be surprised of Carr announces his retirement on the Monday leading up to that game just to cap off the emotional week Saturday in the Big House.
I wouldn't be surprised to see him eventually replace Bill Martin as the AD and go on with his life.
I've that for much of the season. You either have the players knowing that Carr is leaving, so they understand this is his last OSU/UM game or they're playing for his job. I think Michigan will be aggressive and put their best foot forward.
I tend to agree with you on the retirement or promotion angle. I think it'll be known that he's leaving or moving up in the athletic department and that'll serve as a motivational tool, especially in Ann Arbor.
For Michigan, they'd like nothing better than to knock OSU out of the title game. They'll probably hope for LSU to win the whole thing so they can cause a huge stir by bringing Miles to Ann Arbor, hoping that it'll strike some fear into the hearts of other Big Ten members, especially the Buckeyes.
