Buckeyes Rule

United States

#1 Nov 19, 2006
Michigan doesn't deserve a shot at the BCS National Title. They are a beaten team. Their chance was on Saturday. It's over and they need to quit crying! They'll have to wait another year to be beaten by the Buckeyes again. Bring on USC!

Agreed plus I doubt they'd get three turnovers if they played us again so there goes 17 of their points. Can someone tell me how a ref can make up their own calls, ROUGHING THE CENTER???!?!?!?!

Although I hate to admit it. Michigan did not get it done. Both teams knew what was on the line. You had to win on saturday to get to the bcs. I am not sure what a re-match would prove. Even if Michigan would win, (they way I see it) they would have to share the title with ohio. The would both have one lost each and it would be to each other. I just can not get past the fact that the did not win the Big Ten. I do not have enough faith in Chad Henne or lloyd carr to see a victory if there is a rematch.

No body (I can only speak for myself) is afraid of Michigan. I say, BRING IT ON and this time, no excuses, we will beat you again!!!! But sorry it won't be this year because USC is going to win out. I really hope they don't, so we can stomp you again. Your coach doesn't want to see Troy Smith again. In three games he has accounted for well over 1000 yards against Michigan. Over 300 yards against the so-called best defense ever to include running the ball with over 200 yards rushing. Bottom line, the fans may want to see it, but not the Michigan coach or team. The result will be the same! GO BUCKS!!!!

I have felt like that this game was already a rematch. Outside of losing most of our players on defense. The players remained the same. I would not like to play Notre Dame as we played and beat them before. I would like Ohio State to play USC for the Championship. If they win throughout. We haven't played a west coast team for a long time. Go Bucks!!!!!

I will agree with you on that one. 2008 is to long to wait to get it on with Buckeyes LOL! Warmest Regards, "TROJAN JOE" all I want for Christmas is a FIESTA in the desert!

The National Championship shouldnt include a team that didnt even win their conference.

GoBlue, Trueblue and Umich, I am glad to still see you representing. Most of the big talkers have not shown their faces. GoBlue, I must disagree with your statement that Michigan is the only team that can beat OSU. With Troy at the helm and Trssel out coaching Lloyd (again), the Buckeyes win again on a neutral field.

Hey one more thing I guarantee you this "BOZO the Clown" The USC Trojans have the #1 rated Linbackers in the country, OK? if USC get's the chance to play OSU and it is a good chance then rest assured they will give up a lot less then 42 points on DEFENSE and who knows what happens next, but understand this USC will be making their 4th NC game if they win out.

Don't be a hater because your team can't make it happen when it matters most....Missigan's history keeps repeating itself over and over again. Missigan has a lifetime "losing record" in their Bowl Games 18-19 LOL! and what have you won recently? That's right nothing hahaahahahaha LOL! Great tradition Missigan sure was something back in the 1890'S LOL!

Easy now Broadway Joe. This guy loves his team as much as you love yours.

This is a DIFFERENT year. USC was a BETTER team in 2004. Michigan was good but not great in 2004. Sorry, but I think USC would LOSE to Michigan if they played this year.

Of course YOU don't agree, but trust me, USC's QB would GET KILLED against Michigan's front 7. Ohio State was successful because they have a QB that can run away from pressure and still make the throws. USC's QB is a great passer but Michigan will tee off on him. USC would have to establish its running game. That aspect of the game would be interesting to watch.

Ohio State matches up BETTER with Ohio State.
