If so, why did they agree to them?
We've been gypped by the Big Ten too many times in favor of OSU since 1973 culminating with that disgusting display of officiating by Ohio homers yesterday. If you care enough, feel free to email, message, call, or write a letter to Jim Delany and tell him we don't want to see this garbage ever again. There are of course more important things in the world that we should change and I highly recommend you do those as well.

The Game. The Wallpaper.
Buckeyes are tough, toxic nuts (and people). The wallpaper this week features the only nutcracker strong enough to crack even the biggest buckeyes. I'm still working on a catchy name for the Harbaugh nutcracker, but it works great. Simply put a buckeye in the mouth and watch the strong jaw crush it. What should you do with cracked buckeyes? Toss 'em.
And just for fun, here's a GIF of the Harb-o-matic Buckeye Cracker 2000. #BeatOSU

Good evening, ladies and gentlement of MGoBlog.
As you may or may not have noticed, I have been absent from the wallpaper scene this year for the most part. I've been extremely busy with both work and life and haven't had some of the free-time to do wallpapers like I would like to. Well, this week I was sent to Kentucky for work and so I have had some evening free time - so you get a wallpaper from me for "The Game." Ok, enough stupid filler "me" content, and on to the wallpaper content.
I'm constantly struck by how much of Bo is in Jim Harbaugh. I think some of it is fabricated by my mind and others in the Michigan fanbase, but I also truly believe Bo had such a lasting impression on Jim that he tries hard to emulate Bo in many areas of coaching. For this week's wallpaper, I went with the sentimental approach rather than the "Beat Ohio" chest-pounding. While I love to talk trash about Ohio State, they are not who I am focusing on this week - focusing on your rival is for little brothers. I am focusing on The Game, and on Jim Harbaugh, and on Bo - all things that make Michigan that much more MICHIGAN in my mind.
There's no way I could know this, of course, but I like to think that Jim can hear his old coach giving him advice while he roams the sideline, grinning or growling, teaching or throwing things. I just imagine him hearing Bo curse when a flag is thrown, laugh at the futility of dealing with referees, and encourage his quarterback when he's down on himself - wanting to give in to doubt. I like to think that these things fuel Jim - that they give him some sort of supernatural serenity, an unnatural peace in the midst of the chaos that is gametime. I want so desperately for Bo's words to be prophetic.
"It's gonna be Michigan again...Michigan."
Damn it, Bo. We miss you. Jim misses you. This world took you away too soon. Here's to being "Michigan again." For Bo, for Jim, for the Team, and for all of us fans. I'm thankful to be a Michigan Wolverine. I'm thankful for a forum to express my unhealthy love for this game and for the Team that plays it so well. I hope you enjoy this wallpaper.
Good read as usual. He's much more generous in assessing JOK than I think anyone here has been.
Can't wait for the game. Go Blue!
