Michigan At Ohio State Comments

November 26, 2016

Today, for the first time since 2006, the Ohio State/Michigan game has national title implications for both teams.

Surely if Michigan wins, and likely if Ohio State prevails, they would still be in control of their “destiny,” as far as making the 4 team playoff.

For so many years, (1968-1970) and (1972-1975), the Michigan/Ohio State game had either huge or some “mythical” national title implications, and meant so much to me.

Today, I probably will watch the second half then likely, lonely and empty, watch the extra playoff games on New Year’s Eve.

However,  having been “taken in” by better “Kool-Aid” (Rex Kern and Jim Mandich, to name respective Ohio State and Michigan players), I warn those still immune, it has a very bitter aftertaste.

Rex Kern, pictured above, was a brilliant college quarterback, guiding the Buckeyes to the national title in 1968. One loss, each in the final Ohio State game in both 1969 and 1970, cost them a “mythical” national title.
