It's not quite as big as last year's #1 vs. #2 battle, who you guys going with?

It's not even a question for me, GO BUCKEYES! I'm gonna go with a 27-20 victory.

It is the biggest and best College Football rivalry there is!

Both teams are in a nasty mood this week, and I think that does favor the Bucks, who lost more last week than just a game. I think Tressel's success over UM continues, and Lloyd Carr will be shown the door.

Buckeyes 31, Michigan 20.

I could care less about this game. But I think Michigan has a fair shot playing at home. I think OSU was exposed playing Illinois, but Michigan doesn't impress me much either. I'll say 31-28 Michigan, but it's a crap shoot....penalties are a factor in this game.


Go big or go home

OSU By at least a touchdown. U of M hasn't shown they can win with Henne or "Big Brother" Hart...and I believe there still is a question if they will play or not.

OSU no question

University of Florida (Northern Campus) - 28
App State's Bitch - 21

OSU in a BCS bowl where someone from the SEC can show them yet again the Big10 is slow. Oh wait, it would be the Rose Bowl so most likely the runner-up in the PAC10 (if Oregon makes the title game) will take the role of the SEC team this year.

Michigan shows Lloyd Carr the door though I have no idea who they would hire...maybe Charlie Weis will be available.

Have they changed to louder colors?

I'd probably care a little bit about this game if OSU hadn't already demonstrated convincingly that they didn't belong in the title game. I'm guessing that Michigan will pull it out if their coach can convince them that people will forget they're App State's whipping boys if they win the Big 10. Either way, who cares with the pussy schedule they both played.

With Lloyd Carr coaching in his final regular season game before he retires, H&H will play their hearts out so give him a win over the Ohio school. Michigan sneaks by. Besides Michigan did beat Illinois by 10 on their home turf.

They still have the Buckeyes favored slightly, they need to go into this one on fire to make up for last weeks awful showing. What a crappy weekend for Ohio football last week! My Browns blew it too against the stupid Steelers. It's tough being a Buckeye in Ann Arbor but it'll be easier when Lloyd gets the boot, he is such an arrogant ass. I think Hart and Henne will play, they have been saving them up for this one. Man I can't wait for Saturday! I think I need a sweater vest.....

Oh wait, it would be the Rose Bowl so most likely the runner-up in the PAC10 (if Oregon makes the title game) will take the role of the SEC team this year.

Assuming we take care of business at home against USC on Thanksgiving, that should be Arizona State there meeting them in Pasadena. And if that ends up the case, I'm confident both OSU and Michigan could beat ASU, and likely solidly. If Oregon gets passed on for the title game and ends up at the Rose Bowl instead, OSU/Michigan is in for trouble. That would be a semi-interesting rematch if it's UM, but I think OSU should be able to make a game out of it with the Ducks.

That being said, I'll take the Buckeyes, 34-24.

How exactly is being the #1 team in the nation underachieving? Oh, they haven't won a national title yet under him in three years...whatever. They have a lot of talent left over from Saban's last year there. Let's see what happens in another year when it is all his players.

He's winning so that's all that matters. I wouldn't say so much a fraud as I would say he is risky with all the 4th down plays. Sooner or later they won't keep converting them and he'll look more like Ron "The Zooker" Zook with stupid play calling than the riverboat gambling lucky sonuvabitch he appears to be right now.

SEC has five:

LSU
Georgia
Florida

It's also very likely that at least one more will move back in to the rankings before the end of the season. Big Ten could easily drop to two ranked teams OTOH.

Yeah, playing in the Big Ten was so easy this year.

So let's look at these "tough" scedules:

Michigan

App State - Oops

Oregon - Oops again

Notre Dame - Impressive win  sarcastic 

Penn State - they were top ten, now they're ranked, barely, in one poll

Northwestern - they're so good that Duke beat them

Eastern Michigan - Cellar dwellers from a completely irrelevant conference

Purdue - Mediocre

Illinois - Finally a quality team, not exactl a signature win but worth more than the

Minnesota - sucks big

Mich St. - average win against an average team

Wisconsin - pretty much like IL

So that adds up to:

1 - Loss of the decade(I'm being nice)
1 - "Quality" loss
5 - Wins against average to quality teams
4 - Wins against pathetically bad teams

OSU

What an embarassingly bad schedule:

For starters, Youngstown, Akron, Washington, Northwestern, and Minnesota. Wow! Halfway through the season and not an opponent with a pulse

Purdue - see above

Kent St - back to checking for a pulse

Mich St, Penn St, Wisonsin - see above

Illinois - Oops

So that gives OSU:

1 loss to a 3 loss barely ranked team
6 wins against just plain bad teams
4 wins against teams that are or have been ranked, barely
