Rivalries and Grudges Part II

Ladies and Gentlemen –

Let’s face it….
When it comes to college football….
We dearly love to hate each other….

Now I am not throwing rocks at anybody….
I am right there with you….

EDITORS NOTE: For those readers that don’t think this section applies to you…
Don’t make me say that “one” word that will remind you of your hated rival and make your head pop off.
Because I will do it…

Certainly rivalries and grudges are not confined to the South……

EDITORS NOTE: But thanks to our neighbors to the north…
We Southerners have made it an art form…

But in the world that is college football…..
There are few nerves or feelings that are as raw as those between the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Michigan Wolverines….

EDITORS NOTE: You don’t think so?
Some Michigan Fans will write me nasty letters this week because the above sentence has “Buckeyes” before “Wolverines”.
Believe it….

The Big 10….
And Big Ole Hard feelings….

Let us not question it…
We should embrace it….

The names are synonymous with the Greatest of All-Time in College Football…..

Woody….
Bo….

Rex Kerns…
Jack Tatum…
Champ Henson….
Jim Stillwagon…
Archie Griffin…

Tom Harmon…
Charles Woodson…
Desmond Howard…
Antony Carter…
Tom Brady…

The Big Horseshoe…
The Big House….

Show me a person that claims they are a fan of one of those teams…
That says….
“I really don’t care who wins the game…”

I will show you a closet Canadian….

There is no middle ground for the universities, alumni, fans or players….

There are even billboards in northern Ohio that read….

The “real” fans of those teams live it…
Everyday….
365 days of the year….

I respect that….

Please enjoy the short clip..
And….
Embrace the hate….

    Ooooo…I can’t WAIT until you cover The University of Alabama Crimson Tide, and that cow college on the other side of the state. Just can’t wait…
