U of M vs. OSU - It's On

POST #    581

"This is the biggest UM game since the 1998 Rose Bowl, and quite possibly the 3rd biggest UM game of our lifetimes." - Justin Spitzer

With a quote like that, how can you not be excited about tomorrow's 100th meeting of the University of Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes. In less than 24 hours, these two storied football programs will take the field to determine who wins the Big 10 title. For Michigan, a trip to the Rose Bowl (at least) is on the line and Ohio State has a trip to the Sugar Bowl on the line. Number 4 vs. Number 5. Final regular season game for both teams. I get excited just thinking about this.

The game is on tomorrow at noon on ABC, with kickoff at 12:10. Even if you're not interested in it, tune in until 12:20 to see the energy in the two teams, the energy in Michigan Stadium, and the pageantry of the whole event. More than 111,000 people are expected to be in the stadium. It will be the largest crowd to watch a football game anywhere in America tomorrow and probably the largest crowd to watch a game all season.

what I said re: the florida/fsu rivalry and it being interesting: you have a vested interest when you are related to one of the coaches. . bobby bowden.

Wow, related to the winningest coach in the history of division 1A college football. Not a bad family connection I'd have to say.
