Ohio came to bury Michigan

Ohio came to bury Michigan

All dressed in maize and blue

The words were said, the prayers were read and everybody cried,

But when they closed the coffin there was someone else inside

Oh they came to bury Michigan, but Michigan wasn't dead

And when the game was over it was someone else instead

11 Michigan Wolverines put on the gloves of gray

And as the organ played the victors,

They laid Woody Hayes Jim Tressel away

I am sure that every Michigan fan has had at least one vision of what a Victory today might look like. Let's have a positive thread on this board. No need for haters to tell us how we are going to go down in defeat, just want to hear your visions of how Michigan grabs the victory!

Mine vision of the game sees it close in the Third QTR after Michigan initially took an early lead and then allowed OSU to tie it up before the half. Denard has a long run and a long pass play in the Third QTR, and OSU seems rattled going into the 4th down 10pts. They grab a FG with about 10min to play before Michigan has a sustained TD drive on the ground w/ a few short passes. Up 14 with 5min to play. OSU drives for a TD but the clock is on M's side and they win in 34-27. Go Blue!


"I've discovered that numerous peak performers use the skill of mental rehearsal of visualization. They mentally run through important events before they happen."

Quotes About Visualization
"Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build."
- Robert Collier

"When confronted with a situation that appears fragmented or impossible, step back, close your eyes, and envision perfection where you saw brokenness. Go to the inner place where there is no problem, and abide in the consciousness of well-being."
- Alan Cohen

Unbelievable finish to the Boise State-Nevada game for those of you who didn't stay up until two to see it.  You'll catch the highlights on Sportscenter and College Gameday, but Boise's kicker missed a 26 yarder at the end of regulation to win it and a 29 yarder in OT.  Nevada came down and kicked a field goal to take the game.


Very interesting that the first, second and fourth ranked teams all had close games(Oregon for most of the game).  Makes it just that much more exciting for the inbreds at noon.  Rankings don't mean anything in this rivalry, passion is what drives this game, shock the world!!!



Twas the night before The Game

Twas the night before The Game

Twas the night before The Game, and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, not even my spouse.

The M flag was hung by the front door with care

With hopes that a victory soon would be there.


The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

Dreaming visions of Denard and his dreads.

My wife in her pj’s and I in my M cap

Had just settled down for a November night nap.


When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

I sprang to the window to see what was the matter.

Did I have a sickness? Some sort of bad fever?

It looked just like Greg Robinson’s beaver!


Behind this rodent arose such a sight,

A winged helmeted vision in the night.

More rapid than eagles the players they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:


“Now Denard, now Daryl, now Junior and Vincent,

On Martin, on Roh, keep stunting and blitzin’,

On Kovacs, on Kenny, on Roundtree and Tate,

Tomorrow we knock off Ohio State!


The players charged right off with a shout,

And the beaver followed them to the south,

And I heard him exclaim, and I swear this is true,

“We’ll beat those Bucks.  Let’s Go Blue!”



This all just happened.
