    Not quite the big game it was 2 years ago (#1 vs. #2 the day after Bo died), but it's always a big game. OSU fans are hoping for a big thrashing of Michigan, like hasn't been seen since 1968. Delusional Michigan fans not unlike myself are hoping for the biggest upset since 1969.

    You never don't know what will happen, that's why you play the game. And the best place to see the game is the stadium where it's being played.

    I have an extra ticket. Anyone interested?

    Would love to be there, unfortunately not in the vicinity. I'm still ambivalent about going to Columbus though, especially after my friend was hauled off to jail two years ago for being assaulted by a drunk Buckeye after the loss.

    Well, as they say, we wouldn't mind going 1-11 if the sole win was against Ohio State. And we could certainly do 4-8 this time and the disaster that was this season will be all forgotten. You know, given all the records being broken this year (longest consecutive winning seasons in I-A, longest bowl streak in I-A, countless consecutive wins over MAC team, 10 year win streak against Penn State, losingest season in program history etc), we may actually pull off another one by snapping the loss to Ohio State streak.

    Good luck and have fun in the Horseshoe. Hopefully you can sell the extra ticket to Lady Luck. God knows we'll need it. Maybe Beanie Wells gets injured and carried off in their first drive of the game! Or perhaps Pryor for snubbing us--totally understandable decision but payback's a bitch.

    I high tail it out of this armpit of a city during that game every year. OSU fans are notorious for acting up instead of grown during and after that game... it's a complete shame how base OSU fans become.

    Ouch Rocco. You're so harsh. It's true though. Most of the base OSU fans are slack jawed yokels who didn't even graduate from Ohio State (let alone high school), but feel they must support OSU because it's "their team."

    I would love to go to the game, but alas, I have to work icon_sad.gif

    Not harsh, just honest! The first year I lived in this little slice of hell OSU won... and there was rioting in the streets and OSU students turning cars over and setting fire to campus dumpsters. I was like "What's happening... the bloody team won you dirty pig fuquers!"

    That was when i decided it best to NOT be in town, ESPECIALLY during a home game!

    So i usually go back to Canton and get tattooed... which is what i will be doing!

    Well, as a *slightly* more realistic Michigan fan, I'm just hoping for a good game. Deep down, I'm praying for a massive upset.

    I wish I could be in Columbus tomorrow. Alas, I'll be watching on TV and studying. Enjoy the game!




    Brief anecdote: A few years ago a friend of mine was in a bar before a UM - OSU game and the OSU fans were all cheering O-H-I-O. Apparently one of the Michigan guys shouted over the top of it, "Bet ya couldn't spell a state with more than 3 letters!" Oops. Well, the OSU folks caught the mistake and made fun of the guy saying "No, its four, stupid." That was when my friend decided to speak up. She screamed, "No. It's three! The O repeats!"

    I think they learn one letter per year, Maybe they also repeat one year.

    IF only they somehow could both lose...maybe it will end in a 0-0 tie? LOL

    I've not had many good interactions with either school's fan-atics concerning sports.

    SPARTY ON!!

    Haha, I have to admit though, Michigan fans are just too damn nice. It's eerie. I was walking around Ann Arbor last year tailgating before the game, and I was walking down the street, by myself, decked in OSU gear, carrying a case of beer, and the only heckling I got was "Hey..... hey you! You're gay!" It was weak sauce.

    I suppose it's true. When the Buckeyes won in a heartbreaking loss for the senior class last year, we just placidly vacated our own stadium so their fans could have the room to celebrate. It will probably spice up the rivalry if we were actually less wussy and more spirited, and oh, if we actually win, for once.

    But I think in general Michigan fans realize it's really just a football game--even if it is the best damn rivalry in the country--and winning or losing doesn't make one fan side better than the other in the big picture of life. We may get irked or depressed, but we don't see the sense of verbally or physically abusing the other side. I'm not saying that most Ohio State fans are like this, and I don't think they are, and god knows we have more than a few black sheep on our side, but I do think that the general impression is that Ohio State fans tend to be more obnoxious than Michigan fans. Almost everyone I have interacted with in the South thinks so, and many in the Midwest as well--not that this validates my statement, but I do think there is some credibility for it.

    Hope someone will actually respond to caesarea about wanting that ticket, instead of indulging in some ultimately pointless discussions. And sorry for fueling that fire, caesarea!

    This topic was just a stab in the dark in case there was a Michgian fan who was interested, or even a decent OSU fan (if such a thing exists. icon_rolleyes.gif ) after a friend had to back out and several others couldn't go on short notice.

    My first at OSU game was back in 1984. Went with some friends from Dayton. We sat up on the 3rd deck amidst a bunch of distinguished alums who weren't always behaving in a distinguished way. In the third quarter, with the game's outcome still in question, my group left. Wasn't safe to stay till the end said our host from Dayton.

    In the early and mid-1990s I travelled with the Michigan Marching Band. It was dangerous to make the short trip from the busses into the stadium. I remember one guy (we're talking football lineman build and prego on top of it) was walking along-side the band, inches away from someone's face, screaming obscenities. The cops did nothing even after I pointed it out and so I did my best to keep myself as a buffer between him and the band. Another trip the bands played in a "skull session" at the basketball arena. It's customary to let the visitors play first. Not here. OSU played while the M Band watched their performance. And as the Michigan Band took the floor... the OSU band left. Then, to make matters worse, some Buckeye fan walked up to a girl in the band and slugged her in the mouth. Her lips swelled up so bad I don't think she was able to play her clarinet. No surprise, but the band would also vacate before the end of the game - for safety's sake.

    A couple years later, the director of the Michigan Marching Band became the director of (all) Bands at OSU. Knowing the history, he arranged for the band to have a police escort ever since. Almost took the fun out of it. (:
