"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I think many Ohio State fans, including myself were very impressed with the heart and tenacity with which Michigan played. I do think the better team won, but Michigan played a game that was worthy of the storied rivalry. There's little shit-talking today because of repsect for what Buckeye fans saw from Michigan out on the field.
As for the decision to go for two, I think that it was a good one since not having a reliable PK in OT could have been a big handicap. Normally, if it was a home game, I think the decision would have been a poor one. I can't comment too much on the playcall itself.

I feel your pain, Michigan. I attended the 2007 Final 4 when Ohio State lost to Florida and it sucked. But still congratulation on a great season and taking home a Final 4 banner for the rafters. I'll not pretend I was rooting for you all, beacuse I wasn't. But your basketball team has earned some respect from me, so congrats on an otherwise great season of hoops. Michigan had a great team, but it was Louisville's year.

I for one, always try to make opposing fans feel welcome and have occassionally admonished some of my Buckeye brethern for exhibitng behavior that was rude tot he opposing fans. You do have to expect to be razed a little when you go on the road, but that is all part of the experience, in my opinion. Not all of us are so hospitable to opposing fans, but things have gotten a lot better over the years. Nowadays, there is a sort of unspoken agreement amongst our more evolved fans that while we can't really eliminate all the douch-baggery we can try to make up for it by being exceptionally acomdating and friendly. Any of you are welcome anytime to watch The Game from my tailgate and enjoy all the food and libations available, so long as you don't mind watching the game on a b/w cathode-ray TV while locked in a porta-potty. Kidding of course. Most of us really do try and do a great job. But it only takes a few bad ones to make things miserable for others.

Bronxblue, If you could be so kind as to produce a handbook of proper fandom, the Buckeye Nation would be greatly appreciative. We realize our shortcomings and look to you to instruct us. We too want to be able to proudly display our school colors in as morally superior of a manner as you are able to. That way when Michigan does beat Ohio State again one day, we can chase the chill of defeat from our sorry bones by wrapping ourselves in the virtue of our own moral fiber, just as you do.

I look for a very good game from your team on Saturday. Ohio State is a very good team, but I would not call them great. And the way Gardner has been playing, he could really give Ohio State fits. I still like my Buckeyes to win the game, but it is going to be a fight to do so.

I don't think so. Even if all the chips fall that way, I think there would be voters who would not let that happen due to the bowl-ban and vote Ohio State down. As it is, one voter dropped Ohio State 6 places this week from #8 to #14 for beating Wisconsin and having teams in front of them lose.
