It’s THAT week again.
THAT refers to The Game, the archrivalry between Ohio State and That Team Up North Whose Name Should Not Be Spoken In Public.
Just kidding — almost!!! This is the week you gotta have fun with your friends who are fans of THEM, isn’t it?
Unfortunately, That Team isn’t having the kind of season Buckeyes’ fans need — not want; there’s a part of me that wishes THEY would lose every game THEY play — for them to secure a spot in the BCS title game.
The Bucks need lots of help to get there: not only must they beat the aforementioned ——- and probably badly and That Team Up North State in the Big 10 title game but they need either Alabama to lose either this week in the Iron Bowl against Auburn (which could happen) or in the SEC title game ——— or Florida State to lose this week to Florida — when Hades freezes over — or in the ACC title game.
For the Buckeyes to compete at the highest levels from here on, they not only need to get the blue-chippers that Urban Meyer will bring in and win games but they need the Big 10 teams to also get their share of blue-chippers so they can win their games, especially non-league and hopefully not against Crawfis College!
