Michigan vs Ohio State anyone?

 

Michiganexpats - Sports – See All Sports

By Mr. Sig

OSU-Michigan

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.

Of course!  It's good to see that there is some stability in the world.

But let's not forget that there is a lot more to Michigan than Detroit and Flint.

Is there anyone out there live in either of these 2 cities that thinks these studies are bull?  I certainly take these things with a grain of salt, and safety depends a great deal more on "not being an idiot" rather than crime statistics.
