Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

im not "cheering" for ohio state to lose, but I am saying that eventually michigan as a rival will cease to matter. not to you or me, but to kids growing up in the last few decades. I hate michigan because I grew up in the 90s. my aunts and uncles hate michigan because they grew up in the 60s and 70s. none of us hate illinois. that's my only point, and because I love the cultural significance of the rivalry, I don't want to lose it

I'm 33, meaning my formative years were spent watching some amazing cooper teams get waxed on a regular basis. so im never, ever going to be tired of ohio state beating the wolverines. but I'm also a high school teacher here in columbus, and while I have many, many students who are huge buckeye fans, for most of them michigan barely registers as a blip on their radar. telling them that michigan fans are arrogant isn't going to make them invested in a rivalry that one side always wins

I guess the question people need to ask themselves is whether they value the significance of the michigan rivalry as a cultural touchstone more or less than they value beating michigan. and look, the onus is on the wolverines to not suck. urban should be working around the clock to beat them by 50 every year. but ultimately the reason why we even care about the michigan rivalry is because of the impact that they've had on ohio state football historically. if that goes away, in a few decades so does the rivalry. to me that'd be really sad, and would diminish the buckeyes almost as much as it would michigan
