    a quality move by the bigten to combat the drpepper sec championship, the enron big12 championship...etc...etc...

    a good move by the bigten to ENSURE that the osu-scum game is the final game of the year for the bigten....

    That is a good point...but it is still disappointing in the grand scheme of things.

    Did we really need an official sponsor ?

    I would have thought Cialis a good sponsor since we always get 'up'
    for The Game.

    Heard that on 610. We are getting close to having a sponsor for every game...

    Three words: Total fucking bullshit. Why does the biggest rivalry game in American sports need a corporate sponsor, and why does it need to be labeled a classic?

    Yeah, but we're up for the entire week. Not just three days. So Cialis would have to sponsor the game twice, just to keep it up that long.

    count me silly....but as stupid as the average media member is....

    does a win in the SBC Michigan-Ohio State Classic late in the year help.....and does a loss in the "classic" help reduce the normal poll bounce....

    just a thought.....

    in short.....is this an attempt to minimize the effects of not having a championship game....in terms of polls....

    Another revenue stream. Geiger says it goes to scholarships. Nice way to justify the corporate BS....

    Let's see...what witty slogan can I come up with to deface the SBC acronym and brand name?

    How about the...Scholarships Buying Cash game?

    Too bad - first the Rose Bowl, and now the greatest rivalry in sports slips further into the corporate sponsorship abyss.
