|The Real "Granddaddy" of Them All— Michigan vs. Ohio State|
it comes to the greatest rivalries in sports nothing quite matches up to
the gridiron battle of two major powerhouses, Michigan and Ohio State.
For about as long as I can
remember the month of November was always a turbulent time in my home,
with one Saturday in particular when my mom would go on a five-hour
shopping spree. Even as I became an adult I would go over to watch the
"big game" with my dad. And even then, mom still left the house each time.
Why you ask?
year, however, will be different, but not because it’s the biggest
match up in MY lifetime as a Michigan fan. And it won’t be
because legendary University of Michigan coach Bo
Schembechler sadly passed away on the eve of this historic game.
missed the weekly chats and "taunts" about our
teams leading up to the big game. And when tomorrow comes I’ll miss
beating him with pillows as he laughs over a Mike Hart fumble. I’ll
miss hearing him curse when Heisman
bound Troy Smith
throws his first interception of the game. I’ll miss him… period.
ever there was a Michigan/Ohio State match up not to be missed, it’s
this one. And even
though he’s gone, I don’t intend to miss it.
