Michigan vs Ohio State anyone?

Does anyone care about this game anymore?  Sure, it is still the biggest rivalry in college football from a historical standpoint, but in the last few years it’s just seemed uninteresting since the result was (and is) always inevitable.

I remember that as a kid, this game typically had major national title implications and was almost always the game that determined the Big Ten championship.

It will only be a matter of time before Michigan gets its program back to a point where the stakes of this game are more than just pride, but in the meantime, don’t expect much of a game this weekend.  But… what an upset and national story it would be for Michigan to go in and win.  It’s not likely, but certainly possible.  I suppose we can safety say that this game has gone from assuredly being a good game to hoping it will be a good game.

Oh well, at least we took the UP and left them with Toledo.


  1. I'm a Michigan Ex-Pat living in Oregon - Home of the #1 football team in the country! I keep following the Big Ten and I'll hope for a miracle with Michigan, but I'm a realistic fan. At least I have a winning team in my home now. Go Ducks!

  2. u never know. will be worth watching. go blue! what is up with michigan state?! good coach... one loss team... probably not strong enough for the bcs, but still something to be proud of.

  3. They were competing for a National Championship birth 4 years ago. It goes through stages and it will continue to get better.
