    #4 OHIO STATE AT #1 MICHIGAN

    Big 10 regular season title are at stake as well as being in position for a BCS National Title berth.


    Ohio State at Michigan. All through the years when these 2 teams get together for the last game of the season, the Big 10 Championship is usually on the line. So this should be as no surprise as these 2 teams will battle it out in the Big House in Ann Arbor in the ESPN, CNN,ABC,CBS,NBC and FOX National game of the week. Both of these teams will most likely meet again for the Big 10 Championship game 2 weeks later as well. So we are pretty much looking at round 1.

    The 4th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes come into this game led by Jr QB Braxton Miller. He has over 2700 yards of passing with 32 td's and 22 ints. He also has 300 yards on the ground and 3 td's. His favorite targets are Philly Broan 42 receptions 664 yards and 10 td's,Evan Spencer 38 receptions for 925 yards and 10 td's and Chris Fields with 25 receptions for 520 yards and 9 td's. There defense is led by JR LB Curtis Grant. He has 43 tackles, 3 sacks and 4 ints. SR DT Jonathan Harkins has 12 sacks and JR LB Ryan Shazon has 10 sacks. The Buckeyes corner backs are a talented pair as they are both Jr's. Doran Grant has 8 pics on the season while Bradley Roby has 6 pics of his own this season. The Buckeye coaching staff feels that if they play a mistake free ball game, they could go into Ann Arbor and pull off the upset.

    The top Ranked Michigan Wolverines come into this game beaming with confidence. they have the top ranked running game in the Nation. They are led by SR RB Fitzgerald Touissant who has 1289 yards rushing and 12 tds. However not to be out done, there's JR RB Thomas Rawls who has 1026 yards rushing with 13 td's. That's unheard of that 1 NCAA Football teams boost 2 1000 yards rushers. let's not forget SR QB Devin Gardner who has 450 yards rushing and 4 td's of his own. On Defense Michigan is led by JR LB Jake Ryan. He has 39 tackles, 8 sacks and 1 int. The Wolverines have one of the most opportunistic defenses in the Nation. SR CB Terrence Tolbert has 13 picks, JR CB Blake Countess has 12 and fellow SR CB Courtney Avery has 5 picks on the year.

    Ok with all the talk about both of these teams, now let's get ready to see what the so called experts think about this game.We ask ESPN Mark May and Lou Holtz to give their predictions on this game.

    Mark May: I feel that Ohio State had a really good shot on defeating the Wolverines in the Big House. I just don't feel that Michigan hasn't been battle tested and played some pretty weak teams during the year. If they can keep the game close up to the 4th QTR, The Buckeyes can and will pull this game out in the end and will win it 27-24 with a last second FG. That's my prediction and I am sticking to it.

    Lou Holtz: Mark are you insane or have you had to much to drink before you came in the studio?Ohio State has no chance in this game. The only way Michigan will lose this game is if there is a power failure in Ann Arbor and they can't complete the game. I can't believe you think the Buckeyes have a real shot in this one. Michigan wins this game and the Big 10 regular season title 35-7.

    Wow what a difference of opinions that we have here. Let's see what Las Vegas and the local news papers have to say.

    MGM GRAND: Michigan by 10

    The Ann Arbor Gazzette: Sports editor, Mary Brady, ( Tom Brady's sister )Michigan by 17

    The Columbus Sun: Sports editor: Susan George, ( Eddie Georges sister)Ohio State by 7

    There you have it. Let's hope that this game lives up to all of the hype before hand. Tickets were sold out in the Big House 7 hours after they went on sale to the student body. Brent Mustberger and Bob Griese will have the call for ESPN on Saturday nights prime time game of the week.

    Yea I don't think i can do a game that early. LOL. that would be 6 or 7 central. I can play Wednesday night at 8 central. that would be 9 eastern. We put the kids to bed around 7 -7:30 so I have to wait until then. We both already punched our ticket to the Pac12 championship so we'll be playing twice. :)

    Sorry guys. Me and GMoney could have played but, we made our games stop working on purpose because we just want to be jerks. LOL. It was the most frustrating thing ever. We tried 5 or 6 times and it wouldn't go past the loading screen as your going in to the game your about to play. I had no internet problems at all. Everything else worked fine. I think something could have been wrong with the EA servers. I've never had this happen before. I was willing to sim our game but, Twist said we could just play tonight.

    If its messing up on the loading screen of the game it usually means both of you have to use a non custom playbook. Happend in my other dynasty alot and then we used a basic playbook and it worked.

    Guys and that goes for everyone, we just need to schedule as quickly as possible, not just the end of the 48 hour window. Trifecta has always moved just under T2 the Duece pace and we are getting waxed. We have to speed up with some urgency. I am not aiming this at just you 2 so don't take it that way. It goes for everyone.

    I agree, the pace of this league is killing me. I am especially sick of seeing people waiting on CPU games. These should be played in 24 hours or less. If we are past 24 hours and the user games have been played, sim. I don't think some people truly understand this concept until losing a simmed game.

    Another piece of advice, people should schedule user games a day or two before the advance. I see way too many people scheduling games 36 hours after we advanced, which is why we are stuck on 3 day advances.
