Ohio State 26, Michigan 21
Just perfect

Columbus Dispatch, by Ray Stein

Original Article

Posted By:Jennie C., 11/24/2012 7:42:38 PM

Ohio State completed its first undefeated season since 2002 by edging Michigan 26-21 today in a highly entertaining, if sloppy, game in Ohio Stadium. Carlos Hyde rushed for 146 yards and a touchdown, Braxton Miller accounted for 246 yards and a score and Drew Basil kicked four field goals for the Buckeyes (12-0), who overcame two turnovers and nine penalties.

Comments:
Froze our hineys off, 5 rows down from the top of the stadium, but on the 40-yard line. So great to watch the fans celebrate down on the field; the team singing Carmen Ohio; the whole experience.

12 and 0H-IO!!! Take that, NCAA.

Take that, NCAA? Take what?

Seems to me the NCAA still has the last laugh, as the 12-0 Buckeyes won´t be playing another football game until next fall.

Really too bad for some very hard playing kids, and their supportive families, that prior corruption in the program prevents them from enjoying all that is available from their efforts.

It´s ironic that the Wolverines can continue to play when they were caught practicing out of the allowed times. Some cheaters get a light slap on the wrist.

Interesting, #10, but I don´t think Notre Dame will (for football) ever join a conference.

#9: the part of me that wants to be the only undefeated team left makes me say ´Fight on, USC!´ (and I -never- say that)

But the part of me that does not want to see another SEC-SEC championship disagrees with that.

Funny, the BCS has no problem with those SEC-SEC games, but wouldn´t let #1/#2 OSU-Michigan play in the championship in 2006, because ´´you can´t have two teams from the same conference.´´

Why didn´t Ohio State play Michigan for the National Title in 2007. Hmmmm ... Florida 41 Ohio State 14. The Big Ten isn´t anywhere near the level of play as the SEC. LSU and Alabama played a close game in the regular season last year. They were far and away the top two teams in the country. If Ohio State and Notre Dame played an SEC schedule this year they´d be lucky to finish 8-4.

On the positive side, the free phone buckeye Ohio St doesn´t have to go out and embarrass itself or the big whatever again this year. I´m, not saying they are slow, but maybe just run to long in the same place....Have no interest in seeing BO´s jesuits, either. Standford looks solid ....I like.. the color scheme. No question the best football is played in the SEC....No way any of these pretenders could play down here and not be .500

To all you OSU haters you can smack all you want. Football in Columbus is a heady experience. It is part of our culture just as much as "roll Tide is to Alabama. Dis away. Tradition still stands strong in the Buckeye state. Jim Tressel will always be respected. You can´t take away the man that he is and the success he had here. The NCAA was just waiting to chop OSU at its knees. We had tattoos and personal memorabilia sold. Miami had prostitutes. just sayin´ Urban Era has just begun.

Speaking as someone whose team (Nebraska) got trounced by them earlier this year, I think I can reasonably opine that they are at least as good as the bearded leprechauns who will be playing in Miami this January.

I´m not sure if they´d have gone unbeaten had they faced the pressure of playing for a title. The NCAA decided it would be best for me never to find out.

PS I have never, to my recollection, bet more than $5 on any sporting event, but I at least thought about it this time. I was quite confident that OSU would beat the spread of 3 1/2 in Columbus.

Gee, now the Bucks can go 13-0 in 2014 with the addition of that football powerhouse, Maryland, to the conference. And then 14-0 once that terror of the Big Least, Rutgers, joins. Sheldon Richardson knew what he was talking about: Big 10 football is "old man football."

College football is much more fun than pro. I adopted the Gators when I moved to FL and when Ohio State was behind I could imagine Urban Meyer clutching his chest and thinking, "Oh no, not again...." LOL. The Buckeyes played brilliantly. Blocking was the key. They block better than any college team and that´s what allows points to be scored. The unsung heroes in the trenches deserve recognition.

After Notre Dame gets pounded by the SEC champ in the BCS title game, OSU fans will be whining that they should have gotten the AP national championship. And there´s no sweeter sound than the cries of whining Buckheads.

As I watched the Wolverines spazz around during the last quarter, I found my self cheering for the home team since neither was probably headed for a bowl game. Then I remembered what all those fans, friends and their families did during our really important game on Nov 6th. I´m over it now and would like to congratulate all of you that live in our basement.

AUBURN, Ala. — In a season of miracles for Auburn, all it has taken is one mistake to give the Tigers life. No. 1 Alabama made just enough of them Saturday to change the course of history. With no time left on the clock, Auburn cornerback Chris Davis caught a 57-yard field goal attempt by Alabama in the back of the end zone, ran it out down the left sideline and went 109 yards untouched to beat the Crimson Tide, 34-28.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Ohio State nickelback Tyvis Powell intercepted a 2-point conversion pass attempt from Michigan´s Devin Gardner with 32 seconds to play Saturday to save the Buckeyes´ unbeaten season and keep them in contention for a BCS National Championship berth. Powell stepped in front of a pass intended for Michigan´s Drew Dileo and was immediately tackled, but he clutched the ball in his arms, and Ohio State clinched a 42-41 victory. Michigan had capped a 10-play drive moments earlier with a 2-yard pass from Gardner to wide receiver Devin Funchess. The Wolverines had gone 86 yards in two minutes

We in the media — especially those working event broadcasts — have a horrible habit of blindly or wishfully reporting great achievers are additionally blessed: They’re great humans. Among many others, we did it with Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong. Last year, we began to do it with Adrian Peterson, before, and then after, he was selected the NFL’s MVP. With every big game — 2,037 running yards worth — the media bloated his profile: There runs Superman, a super guy, too.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
