Beat Ohio!!!

Beat Ohio. As a student, nothing could possibly make me prouder this year. I only get to see 2 games vs Ohio while I'm here and we damn well better win this one

You only get to see two games while you're a student?!  Damned ninny!  There's two other road games, plus possible Big 10 Titles and, God-forbid, a bowl game!  I went to four Michigan games during my time, four!  Remember to try to watch the game when you're there, look up from those darn texts every few minutes, okay?

I believe he was referencing the two home games which would normally take place during your undergraduate years. I went to all four OSU games in my time myself. Actually, not including the bowls, I went to 42 of 48 in those four years (accommodations for the Rose Bowl were easy for me - most of my family is in Los Angeles, which will invite questions as to why I live in Metro Detroit sometimes).

Oh man I can't freaking wait! After we beat Ohio, I am going to rush the field so vigorously and emphaphatically and deliberatly, Fred Jackson will complement me and say I remind him of the one and only, Mike Hart.

(Sidenote: We do rush the field right? Seeing as I've never been around when we beat Ohio at home, I've heard rumors we do.)

I'm just going to see what happens. I'm not a big fan of rushing the field since this is Michigan Fergodsakes and lets act like we've won before, but I'm not going to pass up the opportunity if it presents itself.

Also, I have a feeling that thousands of students trying to jump down from the ledge could end really poorly.

This is my last game against Ohio at home as a student, and with the all that we have had to put up with in the last several years (mind you, I'm a junior so I've only been in the student section for three years, but I've been a life-long fan, so I've still felt the trauma that 2007 and 2008 dealt upon us),  I think we deserve a chance to rush the field (inb4 student section sucks).  

We've seen one of the (if not the) worst stretches in Michigan football history, yet we've persevered.  And if we beat Ohio, I say we rush it.  

Let Ohio know what this rivalry still means us.

Let them know that the students still care.

Let them know that this is still Michigan.

I totally agree. The only part of me that is nervous is that ohio rushed the field against wisconsin and that left a terrible taste in my mouth.  Like seriously... 6-6 ohio rushed for beating 9-2 wisconsin on a horrific throw by miller.  It will look bad rushing with a score like that of nebraska. My buddy keeps saying you only rush is you beat #1 or clinch the rose bowl.  But I say 7 years is too much and clinching the sugar bowl is just as sweet as getting a rose.

  • Gone to three Rose Bowls
  • Won the Big Ten Championship
  • Almost made it to a MNC game
  • Beat a Heisman Trophy winner in a bowl game to end a great coaching career

Yet the whole time we have had one consistent failure.  We have not beat Ohio.

It makes it so I can't look back and say, those were great years for Michigan—they were good years, but we never beat Ohio, so they will never be great in my mind.

However, a win this week, to (more or less) clinch a BCS birth in Hoke's first season, and to do it against the bitterest of rivals, against whom victory has eluded us for so long.  

That would make this a great year, and hopefully the beginning of many great years.

I will defend that field from you damned hooligans if it costs me dearly!  This is out of control and pure anarchy if you students even think about it.  Have some respect and act like you've been there before.  I don't think I could be more embarassed, think about it when the students rushed the court for basketball last year! Embarassing.

YOU are the root of all evil that allowed such a great rivalry to go sour recently.  YOU called for Carr's head.  YOU ask people to sit down at whats supposed to be the best stadium in the country. YOU want to get rid of the student chants so we seem proper.  GUESS WHAT! This is michigan, this is college, so stop telling people they cant get overly excited about something they love and care about.  After paying $50,000 a year for school and watching dick rod implode our program, I can damn well rush the field if I please.  


November 22nd, 2011 at 2:57 AM ^

(and we all were at one point, trust me)

I'll give you a heads up,

The nicknames like O$U, M$U and other nicknames which I dare not say, are generally frowned upon here.  So avoid them.

That being said, you bring up a good point.  But, it's so nice to be optimistic about this game.  We haven't had a chance to do that in a long time.

Bo is God

This is my first Ohio game and when we win, I will cascade down the stands onto the field and into the face of a Buckeye. I remember all too vividly how they reacted on our home field when they won here for the first time under Tressel. I have a lot of hate to get out. For all those purists, appreciate how cathartic this is going to be and just sit in the stands and enjoy our celebration. The band will be on soon.

A win over Duke doesn't give us the Maui title. There is a bottom side to the bracket that includes Kansas, G-Town, and UCLA. I do still think we are gonna win it, it's just gonna take more than 1 day. Go BLUE!! Can't wait til Saturday.
