Ohio State doesn't list Michigan on its schedule

Were you aware that Ohio State and Michigan had a rivalry? It's true, they do.

The two schools actually aren't very big fans of each other, even though they play in the same conference and are practically neighbors. They've both tried to fix things, even resorting to neighbor's counseling at times, but it seems that no matter what the two schools try, just nothing works.

The relationship has gotten so bad as of late that the two schools won't even refer to the other by name. Heck, Ohio State won't even list Michigan on its schedule anymore.



What a shame. I thought those two kids were going to make it.

It's a great rivalry.  Take it for the spirte of the rivaly not as any disrespect for the Wolverines.
It's nothing more than carrying on the rivaly.  Period.

Our bowl game will be the last game we play you.  I know it hurts to see us get Urban Meyer, have one of the best recruiting classes and to know that its back to punching the Maize and Blue in the face on a regular basis.  See we know that we are going to be in the national title race year after year after next seasons bowl ban.  In all honesty can you say that?  Look at the talent we have coming back and coming in this is a no-brainer.

About the same mentality as the "academic scholars" both schools recruit for their world reknowned basket weaving departments.

These schedules are made years in advance
2005-2008 Cal wasn't that bad, and was competing in the PAC 10 (at the time 10)

They have a contract with the MAC to play at least one Ohio MAC school every season (to keep money in ohio) This year it gets to be Miami.

UAB and Central Florida, "cupcakes" sure, but not the worst mid conference teams. an easier schedule than most years, yes. they did play home and home with texas, home and home with USC, home and home with Miami FL, home and home with Washington, etc. over the past 10 years. And yet you ride their a$$ for having made this schedule 4 or so years ago? 

look at the future non-conference schedule (what is determined so far)....
2013 vandy, florida a&m, california
2014:  Navy, Cinci, Vtech, Kent st (will you people still complain?)
2015: UNC, Northern Illinois, Vtech (remember, this home and home with vtech and UNC was scheduled just a couple years ago) 
2016: BGSU and Oklahoma (yes the sooners, this home and home was scheduled last year or in 2010)
2017: UNC AND Oklahoma (still complaining that they dont schedule hard teams?)
2018: Cinci
2019: n/a
2020-2021: home and home with UGA

deal with it haters. you CANNOT say that OSU doesn't schedule hard teams when they do home and homes with USC, Texas, Vtech, Oklahoma, Georgia, Washington, miami, unc.
just deal with this and next year being an easy OC schedule because Cali sucks now.

""THE 'OHIO' STATE UNIVERSITY will win more games than "That team up north"  ""



Of course, ohio has outrecruited UM for years now, and has more talent than UM.  Combine more talent with an easier schedule than UM, who wouldn't take the odds and bet on ohio to have a better record.    &nbs
p; Its a no-brainer.
