Since it seems like the powers that be in the Big Ten and the athletic departments at Michigan and Ohio State have absolutely lost their minds, as fans and hopefully as alumni, we need to be prepared to move quickly to stop this terrible idea.
Collegiate athletics exist today as a business that requires a massive amount of support from alumni and fans to be successful. David Brandon, Jim Delany, Gene Smith, Jim Tressell, Rich Rod are accountable to alumni who give and fans who buy the t-shirts, the hats, the jerseys, the season tickets, and most importantly the precious uber-expensive luxury boxes.
I'd like to begin to solicit ideas as to how to unify Wolverines and Buckeyes in a coordinated effort to severely punish both schools and their athletic departments should they move this game. If they're too stupid to see that their little benefit and serious drawbacks, then we might need to show them in a more forceful way. Michigan alum has tons of money, influence, skills, and combined with the large alumni bodies at both schools, and former players (some of whom actually still care about the school), we can flex our muscles and save one of the greatest traditions in all of sports.
