There are 40 comments on the Columbus Dispatch story from Jul 29, 2011, titled Big Ten media days: In so many words | BuckeyeXtra. In it, Columbus Dispatch reports that:

New Michigan coach Brady Hoke wants desperately to beat "Ohio" - as he refers to Ohio State - but he doesn't see the Buckeyes as wounded and vulnerable, despite their being dogged by an NCAA investigation that has cost them their coach and three-year starting quarterback.

Tim;

I think you are right but the main reason is that several coaches see an opportunity to make hay while the sun shines, i.e. while OSU is licking its wounds. I think they are in for a surprise.

Fickell is young and will make some mistakes but he won;t make the same mistake twice.

Fickell in not equipped to run this program, and it will be shown pretty early. Big mistake. Thanks Gene Smith.

Watched Fickell. Wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley. The Bucks are going to be competitive, or else!

I am ready for the season to start.

What is with this 'Ohio' stuff? He doesn't know the difference? Coaches need to be able to pay attention to the details.

Actually, I think Hoke misspoke in that first press conference because he was nervous and now he acts like he meant to say that.

Someone should have asked Coach Hokey what sort of success he has had against Frank Solich and the Bobcats and why he sees them as such a big rival.

I'm afraid I have to agree with this. The name of the school is "Ohio State." "Ohio" refers to a different college. Just like Michigan and Michigan State are two different schools. If he doesn't want to say the name, maybe he should just use the initials "OSU."

He did. Just as Woody would say "that school up north" rather then Michigan, Hoke is "refusing" to say Ohio State.

Brady Hoke calls Ohio State Ohio, does he call Michigan State Michigan?

Randy, what do you mean exactly by "not equipped"?

Hoke should say that school down south. Ohio and Ohio State are two different schools. He sounds dumb when he just says Ohio. I have heard kids refer to OSU as Ohio because they don't know any better. Hoke is a grown man and he should know better. What does their countdown clock to November 26 say? I bet it doesn't say Ohio vs. MI.

Amen to that. He'll pay for his lack of respect.

Would be funny if Hoke and his staff were watching film of Ohio U. all week leading up to The Game.

Probably a senior sousaphone player in the band. I doubt anyone famous will do it.

I can not wait for the season to start. I really wanna see what nebraska does. alot of people think they will just come right in and win. Not me I look for wisconsin to beat them in there first big ten contest. As for us I dont know if we will beat them in lincoln but it will be fun to see OSU go to one of the greatest venues in college football.

I remember when Penn State came into the conference and all the talking heads on TV said that they'd have a stranglehold on the Big Ten championship year after year. It didn't work out that way. Nebraska is a good program and they'll win their share of titles but they won't be totally dominant.

"But as yesterday's Big Ten media gathering rolled on, it became increasingly clear that the former Big Two, Michigan and Ohio State, are more like afterthoughts."

Oh pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee...Tim May is full of crap!!! If anything, OSU and M will get MORE attention this year.
