MGOBLUE: Michigan vs. Ohio State

This Saturday the Wolverines are on the road to Columbus OH to take on the Buckeyes at the horseshoe. This will be the 107th meeting of these two teams.

Saying this game is important is the understatement of the year. Especially because we have not beat Ohio State since 2003. There is a reason Ohio is the last contest of the season, after all you don’t put a crescendo at the beginning.

Win this game and many sins of the past can be erased. I am not sure if it will be enough to save Rich Rod’s job but it will go a long way. Rumors are stronger than ever that this indeed will be Rodriguez’s last season but its more than that. In many ways Rich Rod was criticized somewhat unfairly at first. One thing that he did fail to grasp when we arrive was the importance of tradition. Michigan needs this win so bad they can taste it.

We might need some magic, as the Buckeyes are heavily favored by almost every measuring stick and yet… there is hope.

On the road is tough, don’t ever underestimate the home field advantage and Ohio hates us like no other and yet… there is hope.

Almost everyone expects Ohio to be on top, but rivalry games can defy all odds and sweet sweet victory would certainly taste good.

Tomorrow, on a crisp sunny November afternoon these two teams will meet for what will hopefully be a great contest and maybe just maybe a little magic.
