    I know some may prefer warm, but it's kind of fine by me that the weather is going to get a bit colder Saturday (not much).

    Since Michigan became the traditional season-ending game in 1935, Ohio State has entered The Game undefeated 15 times:

    1944........8-0-0.........Ohio State 18, Michigan 14
    1954........8-0-0.........Ohio State 21, Michigan 7
    1961........7-0-1.........Ohio State 50, Michigan 20
    1968........8-0-0.........Ohio State 50, Michigan 14
    1969........8-0-0.........Michigan 24, Ohio State 12
    1970........8-0-0.........Ohio State 20, Michigan 9
    1973........9-0-0.........Ohio State 10, Michigan 10
    1975.......10-0-0.........Ohio State 21, Michigan 14
    1979.......10-0-0.........Ohio State 18, Michigan 15
    1993........9-0-1.........Michigan 28, Ohio State 0
    1995.......11-0-0.........Michigan 31, Ohio State 23
    1996.......10-0-0.........Michigan 13, Ohio State 9
    2002.......12-0-0.........Ohio State 14, Michigan 9
    2006.......11-0-0.........Ohio State 42, Michigan 39

    Ohio State's record in those games is currently 9-4-1 (.679).

    After winning The Game in 1954, 1961, 1968, 1970, and 2002, Ohio State went on to win a national championship.

    After winning The Game in 1975, 1979, and 2006, Ohio State went on to lose a national championship in a bowl game.

    The loss in 1969 definitely cost Ohio State a national championship.

    The losses in 1993, 1995, and 1996, and the tie in 1973, cost Ohio State a chance for a national championship.

    After winning The Game in 1944, Ohio State (9-0-0) finished #2 in the AP Poll behind Army (also 9-0-0).

    Prior to 1935, Ohio State entered The Game undefeated 18 times; Ohio State compiled a record of 3-14-1 in those Games, many of which occurred very early in the season. The only loss of consequence came in 1926, when Ohio State entered The Game at 6-0-0, lost to Michigan by the score of 17-16, and finished the season at 7-1-0. Alabama (9-0-1), Stanford (10-0-1), and Lafayette (9-0-0) are generally considered to be the national champs for 1926, so it is fair to assume that Ohio State's loss in The Game cost them a share of the national title.

    Probably not the biggest of crowds, but if Coach Meyer gives any sort of speech during the men's basketball game Friday, hope it fires up the masses.

    Jaxbuck I hate tsun

    Just made up my mind.

    I'm bringing my son and we are headed to The Game!! I can't pass up a chance to have a game like this to make a memory for a 7 year old boy.

    I'm going to take my chances and scalp some tickets. Fuck it. It's been a good year.

    Let me know if there's a BP tailgating spot. Love to meet up with some of you guys and gals.

    Go Bucks

    Fuck M*ch*gan!!

    alexhortdog95 Melvin Gordon has stolen our souls...

    I'm stuck at work (but sneaking and watching my Huskers), so I can't sneak and watch this game at the same time.

    I'll be asking for updates over here on this game, but I'm not too sure that we'll have that much trouble out of Iowa.

    I want both our teams to win. That way it's like a DP on TSUN.

    It was said during our Thanksgiving meal when we were asked to say what we are thankful for.

    And the day was capped off by singing "We don't give a damn for the whore state of Michigan". Grandma sang the loudest. :)

    While this is depressing, The Game really becomes The Game in a different sort of way this year:sad:

    Looking forward to taking my son to his first OSU vs. um game. Four months old Is a bit too early, though, so this year is not the year for me.

    There are suprisingly quite a few tickets being listed on (Columbus) Craigslist still. You might want to try there before heading out to scalp. Good luck!

    Anyone know if there is going to be a BP tailgate going down anywhere?

    Go Bucks. Fuck M*ch.

    BUCKYLE Washed

    Fuck a bowl game. This always has been and always will be more important anyway.


    The reason Flintstone only says "Ohio" when referring to The Ohio State University is because he's out of breath before he can say "State".

    Fuck them all.
