Don’t be the stick, Wolverines.
Be the bear.

So in case you missed the third College Football Playoff top 25 reveal late Tuesday, or changed the channel the second you recognized Grayson Allen, Michigan got a passing reference …
… and then a trolling one.
a. The Wolverines (8-2, 5-2) were mentioned for the first time upon cracking the rankings for the first time at No. 24;
b. The second time, though, is what stuck. ESPN analyst Booger McFarland brought up the Big Game and Worldwide Leader teammate — and Buckeyes alum — Joey Galloway smiled and playfully sniffed:
POKE! POKE! POKE!
@Chase_Winovich @Thatboylid80 @mohurstjr @RashanAGary apparently Ohio States Joey Galloway says “Michigan Who?” on natl TV? That’s blatant disrespect man I hope y’all win these last two and show these people what’s up,!silenced every1 that’s talked ish before the game is played.

I wonder how many Michigan players saw Joey Galloway’s “Michigan who?” comment…

Don’t get mad, Wolverines.
@MichSportsZone Joey Galloway has some balls to say “Michigan who” on the CFP rankings show

In hindsight, we should probably thank Galloway for stirring a pot that wasn’t all that deep to begin with, at least where the CFP is concerned.
Michigan is in the unusual position of being the underdog in each of its last two Big Ten contests, starting with a visit to No. 5 Wisconsin (10-0) this weekend as a preamble to you-know-what.
Got a kick out of what Auburn pulled off last week or the fresh hell Iowa wrought the weekend before that?
Be the bear.
While a pair of victories to close out the regular season doesn’t guarantee the Wolverines a berth in the Big Ten championship — head-to-head losses to Penn State and Michigan State already muddied that water but good — the end of November does proffer the rare opportunity to completely wipe not one, but two conference peers’ playoff dreams completely off the dry erase board.
Michigan’s own CFP ceiling is a bit trickier to peg, given that the dance card, so far, has dangled like a giant albatross around Jim Harbaugh’s neck. The Wolverines have only played two teams with winning records, and lost both tilts — at home to the Spartans on Oct. 7 and at the Nittany Lions on Oct. 21.
Florida (3-6) going off the rails hasn’t exactly helped the resume, either. Statnik Jeff Sagarin this week rates the Wolverines’ strength of schedule as No. 56 nationally, ahead of the Badgers (No. 63) but trailing the likes of Michigan State (No. 2), Penn State (No. 27) and Ohio State (No. 26).

Ain’t no revenge like scoreboard revenge.
Be the bear.
Take care of business in two weeks, Galloway who know exactly who’s who. For that matter, so will everybody else.
