THE GAME WAS GREAT, BUT NO REMATCH PLEASE
November 19, 2006

SCS.com Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler were shaking their heads up above as the Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines combined to score 81 points. Goodbye three yards and a cloud of dust, hello 900 yards of total offense. Ohio State ripped through Michigan's number one run defense, and OSU running backs Chris Wells and Antonio Pittman both managed touchdown runs from 52 and 55 yards. Michigan's highly-touted defensive line got pressure on Heisman-lock Troy Smith, but not enough to stop him from throwing four touchdowns to four different wide receivers. Michigan was able to force three turnovers, score first, and put up 39 points. Nevertheless, Ohio State won the game. Game of the century? No. A game that I will remember forever? Yes.

Ohio State has punched its ticket to Glendale, Arizona where they will play in the national championship game. The team that they will be playing is still up in the air. If Southern Cal wins out, they will play the Buckeyes. However, if Notre Dame beats USC this week, the Trojans are out of the title race. Notre Dame, meanwhile, has almost no chance of getting to Glendale. Michigan already played the Irish, beating them 47-21. If Arkansas or Florida wins out, including the SEC title game, they should be second in line behind USC. Sorry Michigan, but I do not think a rematch is fair. I know you lost to the number one team by three points, but how fair is it to the Buckeyes? If UM beats OSU in Glendale, would we have a split national title? The season series would be split 1-1. I do not see anything positive coming out of a rematch except a lot of hype. I have had enough of that.
