I wish Brady Hoke would be successful as Michigan's coach. He preaches toughness but all I see is the team playing soft with no motivation or intensity. Now we are starting to apologize for "offending" other teams? How about an apology for offending your fanbase with poor coaching?

Overall, the season was a bust. Michigan lost 4 games. All to quality opponents. We lost 2 out of 3 rivalry games. The bright spot was a win over Michigan State. This was a difficult schedule and I suspect OSU would have achieved the same record if they played this type of schedule. Michigan had no running game outside of Denard for the majority of the year and our offensive line didn't improve at all. Still, I can't wait to see the team play in a bowl game and gain victory. I believe better things are in store for 2013.

It makes me sick that there is discussion of OSU winning a share of the AP National Championship at the end of the season. Would a ND win tonight and in the BCS title game prevent this from happening?

I agree! Is there a Buckeye that I shouldn't hate?

I thought I would also mention that I went to Cambodia in August to volunteer at an Orphanage with my church. Because I live in Columbus, the majority of the group were Ohio fans. However, I was able to teach the children how to play "Hail to the Victors" on the keyboard.

I love Ellsworth. My family still owns a house on Church Road. It is a nice small town and my brother and I loved to visit Barrow Park in order to swim in Lake Michigan during the summer.

I have lived in Columbus for the past 21 years. My family is originally from Northern Michigan (Ellsworth, MI). My family moved to Ohio after my father returned from Desert Storm. Because my father was in the army, I never knew the intensity of the rivalry until I moved to Ohio. We lived in West Germany during my middle childhood so I didn't have the opportunity to watch football. The most memoriable game as a Michigan fan in Columbus was the 1996 game. I was working as a teenager at Wendy's. I was the only employee in Michigan gear. After the game, a drunk fan came in and started screaming at me because of my shirt. He ran around the dining area, tossing over tables, and throwing food. It was very entertaining to watch him react to an Ohio loss.
I hate to admit this but I hold a graduate degree from O$U. I have lived in Columbus since the early 90s. After I was married, I couldn't talk my wife into leaving Columbus, so O$U was the only school in my area that was offering the graduate degree I was pursuing. However, I stayed true to my roots and wore Michigan gear on campus. I received crap from other students and professors, but I thought it was fun to see their reaction to the colors I wore.
I'm now working on my doctorate and am attending a school in Cincinnati because I didn't want to return to O$U. Unfortunately, I have not had the chance to make it to a Michigan game this year. This is the first year since 2000 that I have not been to an actual game. If I were to be offered the tickets, I would bring my 8 year old son. He loves sports, especially Michigan Football. He is a walking sports almanac and never forgets a score, stat, etc.
Best of luck to the winner of the tickets. O$U fans are a rare breed and I would love to see Michigan beat Ohio in their own house!
