Dear Jim Harbaugh: Simply beat Ohio State and save the season for Michigan

Dear Mr. Harbaugh,
The biggest tradition that Michigan football has to offer is simple: you simply win games. You’ve followed that simple concept decently this year, carrying an 8-3 record into the final week of the regular season. But, key losses to Penn State, Wisconsin, and Michigan State have made it seem as though this season has been a bit hollow. Although it’s certainly nice to have the eight wins, each time that we’ve geared up throughout the week to watch our team take on a top-flight opponent, we were quite simply let down.
I don’t count the season-opening win against Florida as “top flight” because they were short-handed for that game, and their season has been a train wreck. But, through all the letdowns this season, there is a way to rectify the season: simply beat that school down south.
