    Been to both stadiums for the game. I thought the intensity level in Columbus was significantly higher than in AA.

    Part of it may be the configuration of M stadium as the bowl does not hold sound in like the double decked Ohio stadium. But when I went to Columbus for the 04 game, I was amazed at the level of passion shown by the Buckeye fans pregame and during the game.

    I do think that open bowl stadium like Michigan Stadium, and the old Notre Dame Stadium didn't create the sound that Stadiums with high sides, upper decks and large Press Boxes and stuff.

    Probably depends on where you are located in the stadium. Also I would opine that all the loud advertisements, public service announcements, and rap music from the “scoreboard”, along with all the introductions of the 1987 NCAA Chess Champions and 1992 Archery Big 10 runners up from OSU has significantly decreased the crowd involvement. I didn’t see as much of that stuff in Ann Arbor.

    As a proud member of the 1974-76 Ohio State Chess team, we would have been thrilled to emerge from our club HQ cave in the basement of the Ohio Union to be introduced to the stadium crowd, but then again we didn't win any championships either, so there is that......;)

    I think it's fair to say that the intensity level for this one is gonna be sky high....the teddy-bear soft Buckeye squad, Coach born on 3rd base and the city of Columbus have been looking forward to this one. Should be a great atmosphere

    Wether Corum will play will not be known until kickoff. Frankly I hope he can play, otherwise a win for Ohio State would not have the same impact.

    Read today that Corunna and Edwards both expected to play. Both teams have injuries to top 2 running backs.

    Game day has arrived, seems like an eternity to that loss in Ann Arbor last year so maybe time does heal. Great weather for today's game, temperatures in the low 50s and dry. Typical of so many games in the past at both locations. Let play ball! Go Bucks!o_O

    During the reign of Urban the Great, this song was played incessantly in the facility on a loop, non-stop beginning Sunday morning of game week...... it's time.

    This might be sticking in the Buckeyes craws from last year, a little woofing by the home team.

    JSN not playing is a little bit of a surprise as the assumption of WW fans was that he was held out of the Maryland game so that he could play today. Instead his hamstring injury in the ND game was a season ending injury. He will still go high in the NFL draft.

    Interesting, Terry. The Big House has had problems this year with the teams getting after each other in the tunnel since both teams have to use the same tunnel. Harbaugh has been blaming the visitors but that tape from last year makes me wonder. Maybe it's time for Michigan to do something to rectify an ongoing problem.

    Stroud and the Buckeyes came out in the first series like Smokin’ Joe Frazier.

    We lead 10-3 end of first Quarter, I think Curum is done for the day. He was limping badly as he left the field early on.

    Wow! We have a football game (at least for now)! Burned them on a full out blitz.
