Sounds like you're cheering AGAINST UM to me. Sorry to hear that.
History is, the the team with the most to lose , usually loses. Det, why would you go against the state when the enemy is O.S. Uptight Sparty. Notes: of 600 game minutes O.S. has trailed 24 min. U.M. 17 min. O.S. offense makes their D look better because the O is on the field more. Mi casa es usted casa. Throw away the stats. Who wants it the most? TDFast, that's what I've been hearing.
I despise them. I don't like OSU but I hate U of M. It's a "Hobson's choice" but I'll go with the Red team. I'm fairly certain the majority of Blue folken would root against the green in similar circumstances. Impossible to say, since MSU sucks every year.
There is no way that a true Michigan fan would root for OSU to beat MSU. I think that UofM and MSU are more friendly rivals than arch enemies.
Any predictions? I'm going with OSU 24 to 10.
Don't take offense, but I see that as the AA perspective of the MSU-UM rivalry. UM considers it a 'friendly' rivalry because UM has had the upper hand with MSU since the time Bo started as head coach. MSU's last Rose Bowl appearance was 1988 when we [sarcasm]thumped[/sarcasm] USC 20-17. As Tater said, MSU football sucks! Sparty is pissed! and will one-day claim his revenge. I hope UM'ers will consider it a 'friendly rivalry' after having their ass kicked for the better part of 30 years. It's got nothing to do with 'going against the state'. You need to spend 20 or 30 years in Sparty's cleated football sandals to understand. That said...I don't hate UM...may the better team win on Saturday.
Friendly rivals? C'mon Tay. MANY U of M fans won't even acknowledge there is a rivalry. They believe MSU is waaaay beneath them. Maybe that is truly the case many times. If U of M wins, I'll be happy for guys like Gazoo and a few friends back home. But I will root for OSU all the way. Go Buckeyes. (Yuck).
that's the funniest thing. a lot of those fans (and i know SEVERAL) couldn't even get in to MSU if they tried, let alone U of M. but they feel MSU is beneath them. hilarious stuff. i'm an MSU fan all the way, but i'll be rooting for Michigan to kick Ohio State's ass on Saturday.
I'm thinking Buckeyes 27 - 17
Because I grew up in Michigan, I had a lot of friends that ended up going to MSU. I'd head up to Lansing every time I really wanted to party. Maybe that's why I consider it friendly... all the co-mingling. I'd root for Michigan in the Big Ten. If they were out of it, I'd root for MSU. If it were a Big Ten team against a non Big Ten team, I'd root for any of the Big Ten teams that didn't have Ohio in their names. However, if it meant a National Championship, I'd even root for OSU over a ND, USC, FSU, etc.
Well said TaS, I must confess I frown on Sparty when they play UoM, cause it's just a power try for them to ruin UoM's season. Which UoM can do themselves.But wasn't it nice a few years back when Sparty got revenge on O.S. after they had beaten UoM? I think O.S. had a unbeaten season going until then. ...Sparty has a serious inferiority complex. Kinda like Lion fan.
Its kid of sad how 80% of the total State of Michigan populas is against the Wolverines and 100% of the State of Ohio. You would think UM was the anti-christ of college football.
80% of the state against the wolverines? seems like the other way around to me... btw bo schembechler passed away while taping Big Ten Ticket this morning. pretty crazy to happen the day before the big game. Report: Michigan legend Schembechler dies after collapse - NCAA Football - Yahoo! Sports
WOW! How ironic. That'll give UM extra motivation.
RIP...Bo Schembechler. We will miss you buddy
From all the things I have heard about and from Bo, I wouldn't put it past him to die on the day before the UM-OSU game, just to give the 'Boyz in Blue' a little extra motivation. I say this with total respect and admiration, not as a joke. I could just imagine Bo doing something like that just to help his boys against that hated OSU. He probably had that much loyalty to UM. We'll will miss that, even the OSU fans. I remember so well the times OSU came up here with the best record, needing another victory, only to be sent packing. Long may this rivalry live !!!!!!
Lazy, are you trying to say that he stopped taking his meds just to insure the final victory? The Dead Schembechlers band when from funny to tasteless overnight.
Stats. I want to see where in the world you came up with those crazy numbers. LOL. Bummer on Shembechler. RIP. That guarantees a U of M victory though. Watch them win it on some miracle play at the end...compliments of Bo. He's probably up there fighting with Woody Hayes already and loving every minute.
I thought the same thing when I heard today.
Why does this have to be a national rematch? Why not let OS and UM do it again in the Motor City Bowl at the SilverDome? This is personal. We don't need no stinkin' national media.
