Well, as you can imagine, I have a very strong vested interest in the outcome of this game. Anybody else out there completely excited?
I sure am.

I figure it will be close game with OSU pulling it out in the end, but you never know. My prediction - OSU 24, UM 21. For those of you that are interested in college football, please post predictions and thoughts below. I'm interested in your thoughts, so please post.

P.S. I almost forgot... Michigan sucks.

I'll root for Michigan since Wisconsin would then be in a three-way tie for the Big 10 lead! Michigan would have the tie-break over us, but what the heck, it would look good on paper for our only loss to come to the #1 team in the nation. It'll be kind of weird to be a Michigan fan for a day!

Reminds me of the good old days...

Note: Sing this to the tune of the Buckeye fight song.

Quote:

Liquidate Ohio State and humble Woody Hayes
Lots of cattle in Ohio send them back to graze!
Knock them off their ivory tower
send them crawling back to the showers
Liquidate Ohio State a do-nothing party school!

Great game, hope I can see it.

Go Blue!

I don't think it'll be that close. I expect a 10pt difference, minumum. Michigan hasn't showed extensive offensive prowess - they've had far too many overly close games.

Troy Smith steps it up in big games, and Tressel is the man. I'm not even concerned.

GO BUCKS!

How is this true? When Michigan wins, the Stinkin' Batchers will be tied for 2nd with the Suckeyes in the Big 11.

Go BLUE!

It ain't the biggest game ever, but it's sure as shooting the biggest game this year!

What makes it interesting to me is that Ohio State hasn't had the opportunity to face a really strong opponent since Texas in the opening week or two of the season. This makes it difficult for me to see why everybody remains so convinced that they're such a great team! It also makes me wonder how they can possibly be prepared for a really tough game all of a sudden.

In any case, I've got an Ohio State alumnus "in the family" and hope to root them on to victory for the sake of a happy Thanksgiving!

Whaddya mean? It's the biggest game of the greatest rivalry in sports. Of course, this means that it is the biggest game ever! Can you name another game that had soooooo much riding on it? I cannot.

Yeah, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I posted that. It would still be good for the Badgers if Michigan were to win, though, as Michigan is our only loss.

But you could root for dirty Michigan. You're talking crazy, man. Crazy!

Rooting for Michigan is like a woman without diamonds.
Rooting for Michigan is like a day without Twinkies.
Rooting for Michigan is simply just grossbuckets.

It's just more evidence of what's coming to you UM freaks fans. We are so going to beat you down!

Please note, the above is just trash talk in anticipation of the game. I see the game as actually evenly matched. A great offense versus a great defense, and a pretty good offense versus a pretty good defense. It's funny how each defense has a weakness that the opposing offense can exploit. OSU hasn't been great against the run, but the UM D has a weakness in its pass defense. I think OSU has the edge overall, but you can throw out anything you know when it comes to this rivalry. It could be a close game, or a blow out either way. How's that for prognostication!

I see this as an incredibly close matchup. What it comes down to is the X-factor and, in this game, his name is Troy Smith.

OSU 24 UM 13

The NFL is getting lame, or at least the coverage is. I'm losing interest fast--and I was a huge NFL fan. The Fox and ESPN influences have turned it into a freaking soap opera, or the WWF. In-game interviews, inane sideline reporting, stupid music videos, montages of jarring hits, pointless graphics, twenty angles on the guy breaking his leg but only three on the "touchdown" play, three morons in the booth shouting and fake-laughing for 3 hours...blech.

Sounds like a comment from someone who has never been to a big-time college football game. You haven't experienced a college game, have you? There's nothing like it. Any NFL game I have been to hasn't had a tenth of the atmosphere.

Also, it's more fun to root for your college team. There's no chance that your team is going to move (e.g. the Browns leaving Cleveland. The NFL is just a fiscal travesty of football). C'mon, the rivalries are essentially made up in the NFL.

Here are a bunch more reasons from SI's Stewart Mandel:

1) Fight songs performed by actual, live bands and written prior to 2003.

2) Tailgating at The Grove rather than some municipal parking lot.

3) Cheerleaders without silicone.

4) Stadiums without retractable roofs.

5) Players who actually make mistakes sometimes.

6) Star players who actually care about practices.

7) Coaches who actually talk about things other than safety blitzes from time to time.

8) Coaches who go for it on fourth-and-2.

9) Rivals that only play each other once a year.

10) Teams that still run the option.

11) Mobile quarterbacks who are actually allowed to run.

12) Walk-ons.

13) Students who dress up to go to the games.

14) Students who can roll out of bed and walk to the stadium.

15) Games with national-title implications in September.

16) Games with national-title implications in October.

17) Bear Bryant barking from a JumboTron seconds before Alabama takes the field.

18) A Seminole on a horse riding to midfield and throwing a flaming spear.

19) The Vol Walk, The Tiger Walk, the Dawg Walk, et al.

20) Every other tradition at every other school I haven't already mentioned.
