Felt great to be back in the "Big House",even though I wasn't on the field with my gear on playing. It felt great to watch my brothers get that win. I'm very proud of them. We're still undefeated in the "Big House". We all know what this week means. 11-24-2012. Words can't explain "The Game". Go Blue!!
Anyone planning on going to the shoe? If so, good luck and stay out of trouble!
Out of curiosity, is it safe to say that more Ohio fans come to Michigan stadium, than the reverse? What % would you estimate goes to this game?
Go Blue, beat Ohio!
Probably more come to the Big House but I can't really blame them. If I lived in Ohio I would spare no expense to get out of that state for a day.
I would definitely say more Ohio fans go to The Game in AA than the reverse. Reasons? Ohio's stadium is smaller, not by a ton, but by about 10k or so, so less room for visitors. Also - their student body is a good chunk larger than ours, meaning more built in fans. Lastly, M fans are much more spread out than OSU fans. Such a large chunk of M fans live in Chicago or on the coasts, whereas a very large proportion of the OSU fan base lives between CIncinnati and Cleveland.
The percentage difference isn't drastic I wouldn't think, but there are always more Buckeyes in the Big House than M fans in the Shoe.
More come to AA because Michigan fans are much more hospitable to Ohio fans, than Ohio fans are to Michigan fans. Going to AA isn't a threat to Ohio fans like Columbus is a threat to Michigan fans
I'm going! I will bring a flask with Jack Daniels as my peace offering, intended to share with my fellows in the stands.
You should go on Saturday. Not for the spit, but for the win. Do it for the rest of us.
I'm flying from Orlando to Columbus tomorrow. I'm staying with a friend all weekend and going to The Game on Saturday.Pray for my safety. I'll be wearing my Michigan gear every day. I can't justify being a die hard fan without repping the colors in the deapest frontlines of the enemie's battlefront. Can't wait for Saturday. #GoBlue #BeatOhio
We have awesome F.A.N.S Go Blue !!
anyone catch the power point from Hoke
Super cool that you post on here - love to hear from ex-players (especially the beloved ones).
Oh yeah - BEAT OHIO!
The Game? Triple H?
Let's take a sledgehammer to Ohio like Triple H does to his enemies. Oh and BEAT OHIO
LET'S GO BLUE!
does anyone else think it's awesome that Martavious Odoms posts on this blog?
I hope we bust out the play from last year where you baited two Buckeye defenders into running into each other (cue the three stooges sound effect) then caught a TD pass. It's easily my favorite play from last year's game and It obviously worked to perfection, just like you guys drew it up!
GO BLUE!! BEAT OHIO!!
That was a awesome play and what better game than "The Game" to catch a touchdown.
Beat Ohio! Go Blue. Hail. All those phrases really mean something this week. I can't believe it's already here though, in this 2012 year and football season.
I get the mantra, "words can't explain 'The Game'", but any insight into you and your teammates games against Ohio or the week leading up would be great to hear about!
Alright, somebody has to say it: UNINFORMATIVE THREAD TITLE :P
OK, that's out of the way. BEAT OHIO
Having been one that had geared up for The Game, he gets a pass.
You must be one angry person. Every comment of yours is a complaint.
-Mountain Goat Blockers Everywhere
Beat Ohio and Go Blue!
Love hearing from you Tay.
Only thing I didn't get to do while at michigan was meet "Bo" thats one thing I pray I could've did.
Pahokee, mgoblog's Sister City. Seriously Tae can we work with the city to make this happen?
What are we trying to make happen, more details.
I think Pahokee is one of mgoblog's favorite cities. If there are other ways to be involved in that community (like Hope for Pahokee), feel free to let us know.
Tay- any insight as to why JT Floyd cut the dreads? Furman too? I'm getting real concerned about lack of dreadlocks moving forward.
Need MOAR Pahokee Pipeline!!
I don't know why they did that and yes I agree with you we need more PAHOKKE boys.
Ohio is ripe and ready to get knocked off. I feel it in my bones. Michigan is taking this one! Be Martavious!
It is pretty awesome that you are on here Martavious!
Great picture I really enjoy talking to you all since you only get to hear players talk at fan day or a interview online. Go Blue !!
I get all tingly every time I see a post from Martavious.
p.s - Let's make Urban long to return to the SEC.
we #Eating all day everyday.
Go Blue and, of course, BEAT OHIO.
Others have said it, but it is great that former players are coming here to interface with fans on this blog. We are truly honored.
Glad that you all welcome me with open arms and its been great talking to you all for me becasue the fans only get to talk to players if they know them personally or at fan day.
and hats of to you Martavious for the work you are doing for your hometown.
Go Blue! Beat Ohio!
If the play as a TEAM we will be fine.
Thank you Mr. Odoms for years of dedication.
Go Blue! Beat Ohio!
I hate Ohio.
All right let's go Blue.
Martavious you are the man.
We have the best players, and former players.
Be careful wearing your colors, I was assaulted on my first trip.
Bodyguards are good, being in a crowd of M fans is good.
Do not call the police for help.
I will be there for the 11th time.
Bless you, Taye. My buddy has a video of me jumping up and down, lifting a chair over my head, and screaming "Taye Odoms. Taye FUCKING Odoms!" over and over again for about 60 seconds. It was after your catch against Indiana to win the game. It was at Duffy's, the Michigan bar in Chicago, the whole place was going insane.
Point being, there are literally hundreds of thousands of people with personal memories of you like that; some of those people populate this board. Thank you for posting, and thank you for all the work you're doing in Florida. And thank you for the memories.
It's cool to have an actual former player here posting. I respect that a lot. But I still hate your team. Sorry.
But I'm afraid most Buckeye players would be confused why writing on the screen in crayon doesn't seem to work.
I wish I could get that many upvotes!
