UM vs OSU - The Rivalry

Submitted by GVSUGoBlue on February 10th, 2015 at 11:31 AM

After listening to WTKA this morning and hearing the story of Bo's passing, I had an urge to watch this documentary. If you have an extra hour today, I beg you to watch this. Football can't come soon enough. Harbaugh is going to bring us back. Believe it.

and if you ask osu fans, at least the majority of them, the 'rivalry' is just fine the way it is.  Most of the jackasses claim they aren't nervous about JH coming to Michigan....that urban MF'er meyer isn't scared and they couldn't give a rats ass who UM's coach is.

And that's bullshit.  They damn well better be nervous.  The state of this rivalry is about to change.  Despite the years since 2006 of less-than-acceptable player development (that we're normally used to), Hoke still kept the game somewhat competitive even during years that most of us knew down deep that we didn't have a chance in hell winning.  2013 is a perfect example.  Even this year in Columbus, UM played an okay game. 

When UM gets the player development it needs AND the excitement of The Game hits them, no longer will UM be forced to get blood from the stone its been squeezing over the couple years.  The talent and the potential will be realized and the quality of play will be gushing from the seams of this program.

osu says they aren't scared.  They damn well better start.

I thought Tressel tried to keep the 2009 game close so RichRod would stay around a bit longer.  And I thought Urban did the same thing so he could kick around Hoke for a few more years.  It's probably unlikely, but that's the only way I could comprehend those close games.

While I would love for it to be true, I agree that this year if we could have been more convincing we would have. And last year if he was trying to keep it close to keep Hoke around he did too good of a job. I think Meyer has a little Cooper in him when it comes to Michigan and he coaches and the team plays a little too tight.

There's a big part of me that really wants them to roll into AA this coming November undefeated and ranked #1 in the country riding a nice, fat 20+ game win streak.    You know, just like in 1969.

That way when we win we'll replant the flag Bo planted back in the day.

This. Urban Meyer can coach. I'll give him that. But he simply isn't Jim Harbaugh. He won some recruiting battles this first round thanks to a National Championship and Jim circumstantially behind the 8-ball. Some will call me crazy based on Urban's record, but this is simply what I believe: Meyer is a great Xs and Os coach. No question about it. But Jim Harbaugh has lived and breathed football in a way with which Urban Meyer is simply not familiar. Maybe I'm wrong about Urban, but he comes off to me as the sleazy salesman, willing to say what he has to say to get them to sign on the line which is dotted, after which time he doesn't give a damn what happens to you (and I, as I'm sure have many others, perceived this loooooong before Mike Weber). He cares about his trophy case first and foremost, and players are simply means to that end.

Jim Harbaugh is a molder of men, plain and simple. And it will show soon enough. Maybe not as soon as we'd like, because Jim is just not in the same starting position as Urban is. And he'll also have his homegrown talent advantage and the evidently all-important Nike uniformz to help stem the tide. But it will turn soon enough. And the ones down there who aren't ignorant, they know it. Ohio State hasn't faced a Michigan coach who hates them as much as they hate him, and can back it up, in a hell of a long time. The era of the Gentleman Carr, the Outsider Rich, and the Overmatched Hoke is finished. Mark it down.

49ers locker room and saying goodbye to his former team, gave a playful middle finger to Carlos Hyde before he left. And he told some of his ex-teammates way before officially announcing the prodigal son would return to Ann Arbor, time to kick some Buckeye ass.

All I remember is the guarantee and a bomb to Kolesar as tributes to our current coach when it comes to facing the Buckeyes and maybe a thoughtful quote of the day that sent our rivals into a knee-jerk frenzy. This guy knows this rivalry and what it takes to win.

Urb had the perfect storm his first three years - unbelievably easy schedule, inherited Tressel's recruits, Hoke was our coach. His perfect storm is officially over, and he knows it.

Cooper's teams were good. They were talented and won a lot of games, except Michigan and to an extent the bowl games. From a rivalry POV I think it was worse because those were games we should have won. Much of the last 10 years, your teams were not very good, at least by Michigan standards so while many OSU fans enjoy the general misery of Michigan fans after losses to teams like App State and Utah, I know at least for me I would rather we play an undefeated Michigan and be the ones to ruin your near perfect season.

Believe it or not, in terms of time allotted to each team, it's about as even as you can possibly get.

I've heard from numerous Michigan fans that the documentary favors OSU, but I've heard from just as many OSU fans that the documentary favors Michigan. Fact is, it's right down the middle.

If there is one thing I think that should be changed, it would be the length. I think that topic probably deserves two hours, not just one hour. Then again, I'm sure there are those who would claim that's too long. 

GO BLUE!

Well, OSU fans are going to say that because they're OSU fans, anything that isn't 100% focused on OSU, and all positively, is biased against them. Not saying we don't have our own blind homers, but I found it to be much more widespread during my time there. I personally think the documentary is just fine. But the one angle I can see having Michigan fans feeling otherwise is that it seems to talk more about Woody than Bo, and then it talks about Earle Bruce, Cooper (albeit not in a flattering light, but there wasn't much else to say), then Tressel, including his National Championship. Scarcely any mention of Carr. It was, "Cooper lost to Michigan a lot, Tressel beat them". Lloyd was apparently not much of a player in either. So, I can see how it might look to some fans like it was at least told, not with OSU bias, but certainly from more of an Ohio State perspective.
