I spend a fair amount of time thinking about this. I have friends and family members, both  my side and especially on my wife's side (NW Ohio area) that are mich fans. I also occasionally bump into a reasonable mich fan while out and about. I love CFB. I like engaging in spirited conversation about it. Do we rib each other back and forth? Yes. Do I usually win? Yup. And I get my jabs in for sure. But, I try not to be a dick about, unless they're being a dick first. Some, I try to convert to being Buckeye fans. So far, it hasnt happened (ha!). But, I try to be civil about it. I also often wonder how does the Buckeye fan with so much hatred react when they do meet up with the civil and reasonable mich fan? I try to put myself in their shoes. We've enjoyed a great run, and it doesn't look like it's ending soon. After all, they are, too, CFB fans. Do I want them regaining prominence? Nope. But, I don't mind if they represent the conf once in a while, either. So, it begs the question. How do you Buckeye fans with so much hatred for mich react when talking CFB with the reasonable mich fan?

Up next WI, then us. Once again, I found myself rooting for mich to lose. At the same time, cursing them for not representing.

Don't misunderstand, not saying I want mich getting good, or great, just want them winning occ. Then losing all games in conference. If it were IU playing Utah tonight, I'd feel the same way. Sort of. That said, I'm certainly not upset with mich losing. And, like always, I'll end up rooting for mich to implode and rejoice in them losing. Just saying... It ain't a bad thing if they win. Tonight, anyway.

Bigger shout out... after moving into acting from IT consulting, among other roles Otis has landed a starring role in the Independance Day sequel. Former Buckeye captain getting it done...

I'll try to explain this the same way I do to my wife, who absolutely hates mich and can't understand why I'd root for the Utes to lose (not mich winning, there's a difference).

IF mich beats Utah and MSU happens to beat OR, then Utah beats OR or any other Pac12 potential champ - how is that not great for the B1G? I, for one, am tired of the B1G being look upon as 2nd rate among power conferences. Do the Buckeye need this to happen to succeed? Of course not. But, it sure as hell doesn't hurt.

I tell non Buckeye fans all the time that there are two types of Buckeye fans. One wants mich losing every single game, the other wants them winning ooc and their bowl game (when they actually get one) while losing  in conference. Neither is right or wrong. And never upset when they lose. Ever.

The broadcasters sounded like Valley Girls. Big ass shark. Breaching like a whale.
