That was sweet.

Thank God for the internet, Google, and YouTube.

And thank God for The Ohio State Buckeyes.

Best rivalry in all of sports. Pro or college. This week is so special from the day the Buckeyes prior game ends, right up to the final gun of their annual victory over those disgusting Wolverines.

It is a good thing that my normally productivity sucks. It will make this week less noticable.

I was laughing my ass off ... saw someone on another site say "they are working on the Penske file" all week.

CBSsportsline is reporting Bo Schembechler collapsed during the taping of his tv show and was rushed to the hospital.

Totally agree.

Wow....just saw the new polls. Michigan stays #2 in the AP and drops only to #3 in the USA Today poll. The computers LOVE Michigan.....I bet when the BCS standings come out today they will STILL be #2. And, let the controversy begin.

FWIW, Michigan had their shot at OSU. They lost. Someone else should get a crack. Yes, Michigan and OSU are clearly the best two teams in the nation.....but you should only get one shot. The #3 team should be playing OSU. I almost hope for USC to win out now, as that might be the only slim chamce to avoid a rematch. It really is down to USC and Michigan now.

If USC wins they should be able to leap scUM even if scUM is ranked above them. The computer bump from ND will help them a lot.

I don't know Furls. The computers LOVE Michigan. I'm willing to bet Michigan may still be #1 in the computers.

I'm sorry, but Michigan played the game of their lives offensively yesterday. Both defenses struggled.....but the Buckeyes were sensational offensively in the 1st half and kicked themslves in the foot the whole second half. The Buckeyes should have won this one by 14-17 points. But, since OSU kept Michigan in the game, it is now fooling Michigan fans into believing the game was as close as it was and the pollsters too. And, now, it looks like Michigan is the fav to play in the NC game.

What a joke. Makes yesterday's game totally meaningless.

IMO, USC and FLorida should get first crack at the Buckeyes. If both lose a game, THEN it should be Michigan. ND and Arkansas get no consideration to me.....Michigan deserves it more than them.

Let the controversy and debate begin.

Personally, I want USC and Floirida to win out now. I want LOADS of controversy on who is #2. Maybe....just MAYBE we startt hearing whispers of a 4-team or 8-team playoff in the future.

(I want FLorida or USC.....I really don't want Michigan again. They had their chance..)

The SEC winner and USC(after they beat ND) have more right to play for the title than scUM
You don't win your conference, you don't play for the title

Agreed.

But, looks like we are heading for controversy #2358238907dfuhg29979 for the BCS.

If one or both of USC/Florida finish with one loss....and Michigan plays in the NC Game, then all hell might break loose. And, I hope it does.

It is just plain assinine to have the two teams play each other BACK-TO-BACK. I can see if OSU-Michigan matched up early in the year, played a tough game like yesterday.....and then both went undefeated the rest of the way. But, the fact these two would play each other AGAIN, in essentially back-to-back game is insanity. What was yesterday's game then? An exhibition?

I get that OSU and Michigan are the two best teams in the nation. But, yesterday was a playoff game. An elimination game. You lose, you are done. Period. What, in the NCAA TOurney, should we have two teams just play each other again if the Final FOur matches up a #1 and #2 seed while the other matchup is a #4 and #6 seed?

Florida and USC should get their shot. But, in some ways, I hope we do play Michigan again. If Tressel has 50 days to prepare for them it will GET UGLY. We beat Michigan by 14 or more. Easily. Our defense was exposed yesterday as it was sort of over-rated.....but I have to believe they will make several adjustments (as will Michigan) that would slow the Michigan offense down.

UM will take a hit in the computers when when/if ND gets a loss from USC.

USC will get a bump in the computers when/if USC beats ND.

USC will gain more votes in the Harris and Coaches poll as/if they continue to win.

All this will easily overcome the .007 margin that UM holds as of right now.
