Go Blue!

So I know a lot of people out there have thrown in the towel on the Wolverine's this year, but COME ON, YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE GAME TOMORROW!!!

Reasons to get excited for The Game

Ohio State-Michigan doesn't matter.

That's the general sentiment around the country this week as college football's greatest rivalry gets ready to resume Saturday at Michigan Stadium (ABC, noon ET). One of my esteemed colleagues called this the "most uninspiring November weekend in recent memory." There are valid reasons for this belief, namely Michigan's 5-6 record, Ohio State's guaranteed BCS bowl berth and the likelihood that Wolverines head coach Rich Rodriguez will be safe no matter what takes place between the lines on Saturday.

I say let them thumb their noses at The Game. You and I know better. The Game always matters.

As I watched the end of the 1987 Ohio State-Michigan game (Earle Bruce's final triumph) and the start to the high-scoring 1988 contest on ESPN Classic during lunch Thursday, I started to get excited about Saturday's contest.
