Ohio State vs Michigan: Let’s talk about The Game

Another year, another huge matchup between the two rivals at the top of the standings

Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler

Let's talk about The Game between The Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines, shall we?

As fans of the Cleveland Browns, college football has long been a staple of our sports watching. The great State of Ohio has been the hotbed of football at multiple levels with the Buckeyes being a center point for most.

The rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan is legendary around the country, not just in our area. Most Browns fans grew up as Buckeyes fans as well (BrownieBucks as some would call them) but some pockets ended up rooting for the Wolverines (or Notre Dame) instead.

This year’s matchup has a lot of juice behind it along with a ton of questions:

  • How much did the Michigan cheating scandal help them the last few years?
  • Is this the last time Jim Harbaugh will be involved in The Game?
  • Will Ryan Day’s seat become too hot with another loss this year?
  • Did the cheating scandal taint Day’s Buckeyes legacy or strengthen it?

On the field, there is loads of NFL draft talent. As our friends at Pride of Detroit shared, the list is a long one including:

  • WR Marvin Harrison
  • RB Blake Corum
  • RB TreVeyon Henderson
  • TE Cade Stover
  • Both offensive lines
  • Both defensive lines
  • LB Tommy Eichenberg
  • CB Denzel Burke

POD’s article does a great job of breaking down more of the NFL draft talent in the game.
