All Things OSU
November 25, 2011 - Kim Collette
I love the Buckeyes. I have since I was a little girl and was taught that Michigan was "that team up North." This is a big weekend for the Buckeye faithful. It's rivalry week. Saturday it's the Buckeyes vs. the Wolverines for bragging rights for the next 364 days. But this weekend is much more than that. This game is much more than just that. This has been an up and down season for our Scarlet and Gray. Wins over Illinois and Wisconsin, but losses to Nebraska and Penn State. A more average season than we were used to under Jim Tressel's watch. But....a win on Saturday erases all that. A win over the Wolverines validates the Buckeyes and Coach Fickell. That my friends is just the game. All week there has been speculation that as early as next week, Urban Meyer will be named the next Buckeye Football Coach. I don't know whether it's true or not....but they usually say where there's smoke there is fire. I'm not a Meyer fan by any means, nor do I think I will ever become one. But, I will say that there would be no better way for Buckeye Nation to move on from Tattoo Gate than with a win over Michigan and announcing that Meyer will be in fact the new leader of the football program. It's actually just what the doctor ordered. Shall we say....maybe a Christmas present a little early for the state of OHIO!
And....if all works out....what better place to announce Urban Meyer than Value City Arena Tuesday night when OSU Basketball is in the ACC/Big Ten challenge against none other than Coach K and the Blue Devils.
Let's hope the ball gets rolling this Saturday first.....GO BUCKS! BEAT MICHIGAN!
