Michigan and Ohio State Football meet in what may be the biggest game of the year as teams Nos. 2 and 3 clash with unbeaten records in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday. However, Michigan is currently concerned about the health of the return Blake Corum, who ended the win over Illinois with an apparent knee injury. Paul Finebaum continued to speak on Sunday morning sport Center with Gary Striewski and explained his concerns with the Wolverines against the Buckeyes.
“Well, my understanding of DEFCON is DEFCON 1, if the highest, I’m going to DEFCON 0, Gary,” he said when asked how high his level of concern is using the DEFCON range when Corum isn’t 100 % for Michigan in the state of Ohio is . “I think that’s a hugely important issue for them. I know something Jim Harbaugh said after the game he could have gone back – and thank God the injury wasn’t that serious – but it’s a problem, especially when you know it’s going to be very cold in Columbus and the opponents are Ohio State. He has to play at full power. And if he doesn’t, I think that will negatively affect Michigan in the biggest game of the millennium so far.”
Harbaugh didn’t have an exact update on Corum after the 19-17 win over the Fighting Illini, but he sounded positive.
“Nothing right now,” Harbaugh said via The Michigan Insider. “Got the clearance, go back in and we’ll see where it is tomorrow, how it feels tomorrow. Structurally good. That are great news.”
Harbaugh was also asked if his team was ready for Ohio State due to injury.
“We’ll see,” he said. “We’ll see. The boys will do everything they can. Anybody that’s on the sidelines. Knowing our boys, I think they’re going to want to play. They’re going to do everything – give her every treatment and healing power this week who they can. Someone is out they will be out. I think this is our best opportunity because these guys really want to play in this game. When it’s on the edge I bet you see them attacking with an enthusiasm , unknown to mankind, their week this week.
Harbaugh was not too hasty about the horse chestnuts, however.
“I think I’m just going to enjoy this one,” Harbaugh said. “It’s like the biggest win. Perhaps one of the greatest wins of all time. I think I’ll just enjoy it for a few hours, probably around six. Give him six hours. Biggest win, especially this week. Really happy with the boys. I’ll probably be thinking about the Ohio State game in about six hours.”
