Beat Ohio !
Beat Ohio. Fergodsakes.
I hope we see them tomorrow. As an aside, the muppet movie is hilarious.
THAT'S AN OMEN!
Seven years of gloom
Lifted with a victory
Beat Ohio. Now.
on the seniors, if you haven't already. A concise ode to Team 132, one of my favorite classes of Michigan Football. Must read on the eve before Senior Day
Our collective confidence a day before kickoff is somehow making me even more anxious than the pre-game dread of the past three years. This rivalry is truly a wicked master. Beat Ohio.
Been to two edition's of The Game, '92 in Columbus (13-13 tie, cemented my perception of Ohio Stadium as a cement factory filled w/ pigeon shit) and '93, when we, big underdogs, rocked them 28-0 on a frigid day before what was then an NCAA-record crowd.
I also remember, during my indoctrination years in the 70s, when the broadcast of the first part of the game was interrupted by President Carter greeting Menachim Began (or was it Anwar Sadat?) at the Camp David airport or something. The ol' man really expanded my vocab of curse words that afternoon. For learning to swear, it was like a summer's worth of caddying in 45 minutes.
From high in the Rockies: beat ohio! GO BLUE!
I live in columbus and cant wait to get things started tomorrow. First of all im going to get up at 6, than Taking a run and then im coming home turning on wtka for pregame. Than I will begin to dree my daughter in michigan gear for her first game. Than family will arrive and I will begin to drink.
Prediction- simple! Ohio has more talent than us according to recruiting sevices but we trump them by way of better coaching. We also dont come into the game with self doubt nor pitty as Ohio has a lot of distractions. If we can zone read the hell out of Ohio and keep them on their toes without denard making cripling mistakes we can win this through 4 qtrs. I think the second half will be where we pull away. Im thinking Ohio finds a way to score a few and get a lead before mattison figures them out. Im starting to believe we have more smarts on our team rather than talent. Therefore we seem to catch on as the game moves on.
we leas 17-14 at half.
End the game 45-28.
Be loud, wear maize and GO BLUE!
We need that gif with the bobcat attacking the buckeye mascot
i was kinda surprised
Beat Ohio! that would be tremendous
bobcats!!!! beat the bobcats!!!!
Buckeye man smells, but way less annoying than the "Big nut". Beat Ohio - please!
I have never experienced a win over Ohio as an M Fan. Beat Ohio.
Take it from those of us who have seen the Wolverines trounce Ohio.
The last game I attended at the big house was the Ohio game in 1999. It was great. Looking for the same feeling tomorrow.
I don't know if it means anything, but facepalm guy was at 5 Guys an hour ago.....he's ready, but will be doing no facepalming tomorrow
highlights of Woodson, Desmond, Wheatley, and Hoard dominating Ohio to get ready for the game tomorrow. I've seen this team take on Hoke's vision as the season has progressed, and they are becoming more and more like those teams that dominated Ohio. Tomorrow is another step in the right direction. Nuff said.
Get thee to Youtube posthaste and watch highlights of the 313 yards he laid down on yonder Buckeyes!!!
I am assuming the ESPN coverage won't show the senior intros tomorrow, but does anyone know if they will be streaming on-line?
I'm cautiously optimistic about this game. I expect it to be a dog fight and much more difficult than many people are predicting.
My prediction: we are losing at half 14-10, but pull it off in the second 27-17.
I hope I'm wrong because I might bite off all of my nails if we are losing during half time.
I'm preparing myself for a battle.
Hate to say it guys, but I'm picking Ohio................. to lose. Blue rolls 35-14
Beat Ohio! AHHH MUST WIN!
My Wolverine Brethren, the time is almost here to once again bear witness to the greatest rivalry in sports. For the last 5 years, its been extremely frustrating to be a Wolverine, but the end of this frustration culminates at Noon ET. Tommorrow the end of this corrupted Ohio regime comes crashing down, only to be vanquished by a Senior Class that has miles and miles of heart. Tommorrow they will win it for a fanbase that not only demands exellence, but integrity from its programs. They will win it for BO and the Legends of Michigan's Cherished Past. They will win it for programs that do things the right way. They will win it for the TRUE fans and alumni that will always support this great institution through thick and thin.
I was born and raised in Tennessee, but will forever consider myself a Michigan Man. I spent my childhood cheering for those maize and blue winged helmets, but as I grew, so did my experiences as a fan. Being to The Game 3 times further cemented my undying allegiance to Michigan through thick and thin. I am so damn proud of this team, of what they accomplished this year, regardless of what happens tommorrow. From Day 1 our beloved Coach Hoke has drilled into our players the importance of this game and tommorrow it will unfold into a performance into a game that will make EVERY Michigan Man, past, present, and future burst into tears of pride for the Maize and Blue that we love so much.
GO BLUE! BEAT OHIO!
do not need to be from Michigan or have attended Michigan to be a "Michigan Man", although I am both. We have a "Big Tent" and accept all who embrace our values.
My first tsio game that I can remember was The Game of the Century (1969). It was on a 19" B&W TV with rabbit ears. My dad said "Bo cant beat these hillbillies." When we won and I saw my dad happy, I was forever hooked. There was no doubt. My dad loved Bo and they shared that same fiesty attitude.
Go Blue, beat ohio, for Bo, my father, the entire state of michigan and Michigan fans around the world.
I have been to evey home version of The Game since '85 and seen some amazing games. I will be so ready tomorrow (already am and have been). I was thinking about should or should not the field be stormed. These current UM students have never experienced a victory over Ohio. So that swayed me. I say yes and will enjoy watching them pour over the wall and onto the field tomorrow. I hope security is instructed to just let's it happen.
I hope Lloyd Brady doesnt get trampled.
A bird crapped on my head today. This has never happened to me before. I consulted several sources, and in some cultures, it's good luck. Fingers crossed.
It's been a while and it's almost hard to envision what beating them feels like...it's time for that to end. It's kind of like when Seth Rogan throws Danny McBride through the wall in Pineapple Express: THIS ENDS NOW.
beating TSIO is just as sweet and fantastic as the time before it. Enjoy tomorrow and Go Blue!
Almost time to put boots to asses. I am so pumped up. I have told all my peers to show up early. Let's Go Blue, BEAT OHIO!
Get there early and be loud!
can average joes validate student tickets or does it still have to be done by a/the student?
Wear Maize and be LOUD!
14 slow and painful hours.
Even my dog, Maizey, is pumped for the game!
Let's say I'm an Ohio State student driving into the game from Clarkston (basically I'll be coming down 23 South) to meet his friends from high school and to sit in the student section. Where is the best place for me to park? I really don't mind having to walk like a mile, I just am looking for a place that's easy to get out of and back on the highway. Any help for the enemy would be cool.
I will need the name and description of the asswipe that sold his student tickets to a fucking Buckeye, first.
Second,Please make sure you park on Greenwood Avenue just northeast of the stadium. And please get out of the car wearing your OSU jersey.
I'd use the Palmer Structure parking on Washtenaw Avenue. Just take Main to Huron. It'll be on you're right. It's a ways away though.
Movie about Wolverines
Movie about Buckeyes (Corso says F*** it!)
Guns found on OSU players.
Guns found on M players.
I think that sums it up pretty well.
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of Wolverine-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms from other Big 10 schools, you will finish bringing about the destruction of the Ohio war machine, the elimination of Buckeye tyranny over the oppressed peoples of the Midwest and elsewhere, and security for ourselves in a conference free of tattoos, lies and hypocrisy. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He might fight savagely. Or he might not. But this is the year 2011! Much has happened since the Buckeye triumphs of 2004-2010. The Boilermakers and others have inflicted upon the Buckeyes great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive will seriously reduce their strength and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Hoke has given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of footbaw, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting Wolverines. The tide has turned! The free men of the greatest university in the world are marching together to Victory! I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
not a thing in the house was stirring, not even a buckeye.
tomorrow is such an important game for michigan. it could end this horrible losing streak. send these kids who've done nothing but all the right things off with a win in their final home game. it'll show that the program is truly recovering and on the road to future successes. it'll cement the turn around enacted by this coaching staff. that said ohio is gonna come out and play with nothing to lose. fickell knows he's done as head coach and he'll have his kids ready for a battle in whats going to be his final game as head coach there. his efforts and the efforts of his kids won't be enough. michigan's defense is too strong and the offense will be able to do just enough. i'm expecting a tight game but michigan wins 31-21.
Now I can't sleep. Have to get up in 5.5 hours.
My family will be startled when their alarm clock is The Victors, turned up to 11.
Trying to get to bed earlyish but I just can't...this whole "anticipation" thing is a lot more fun than the dread I've felt before The Game the last several years, that's for sure. Can't wait.
a family get-together where everyone else is an Ohio fan. Now I want the win more than ever.
Ladies and gentlemen... I present to you all the honor, determination, vigilance, and intensity we will ever need. I present to you a man beyond reproach, a man capable of beating the entire state of Ohio with one hand tied behind his back... Ladies and gentlemen, Bennie Joppru.
The bards will sing songs about our victory spearheaded by the spirit of Joppru.
