I have always been a Buckeye fan but truly became a diehard after attending football camp under Earl Bruce back in the early 80's. My first car was a gray 1980 Cutlass with scarlet interior called the Woodymobile (bench front seat, an entire generation of kids have no idea how great a bench front seat is!). I grew up in Cincinnati (which should actually be part of Kentucky) where there are plenty of Buckeye faithful that are typically overshadowed by hillbillies, catholic school devotees, and cute little bearcat fans with massive inferiority complexes. I now live outside of Hamilton county where you see the Buckeyes flags fly 365 days a year. My favorite Buckeyes moments: a 3-way tie between throwing with Art as a sophmore in high school, watching Cie Grant toss Dorsey to the ground like a rag doll, and yelling like a madman as Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff as I watched from 20 rows up in the 2006 NC game. Worst Buckeye moments: about 30 minutes after the Ted Ginn moment and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

I agree that this is a necessity to get the students in the gates but I must admit, after visiting the Masters this April, watching a sporting event with no phone in my pocket or worse yet in my face was an experience I did not expect. My focus was entirely on the action and the surroundings and it made for an amazing experience I will remember for a long time.

the head coach is the guy who just helped develop a first-year starter into a Heisman finalist and engineered the 62-point carpet bombing of Michigan

And let's not forget the Buckeyes left points on the board after settling for field goals inside the 5 with Tater on the field and they took a knee deep in michigan territory to run out the last minute plus. That was the most frustrating 62 points ever :)

Holy shit where's a brick wall?!?

But in all seriousness.....and this is personally important.....what sides do the Coke versus Pepsi fall on?

But the conclusion of 2004 was a clear break separating the Michigan football team I still fear - childhood scars are permanent - and the one today's recruits only learn about

Although this was a definite break from michigan past (I too am still haunted by 1990's michigan by the way), I still think the 2005 game was the real about face in the rivalry. #9 Ohio State on the road at #17 michigan with much to gain (a share of a B1G championship, a BCS bowl bid and a pair of gold pants) and even more to lose (newly found momentum in the series). That game could have ended like many we witnessed in the 90's with a better Buckeye team losing to an inferior michigan.......yet again. I think the rivalry changed after trailing by two scores late in the fourth quarter Santonio Holmes dove across the goal line and moments later  Troy Smith magically avoided a pass rush and found Anthony Gonzalez who made an acrobatic grab near the goal line. Pittman running over Shawn Crable for the winning score was the exact moment this rivalry changed.

I hate michigan. Go BUCKEYES!
