Coach Carr points to M/OSU game as one that has everything a person could want

The drum beat has started in the build-up toward the M/OSU clash on November 18th. Today's Detroit Free Press has an article containing quotes from various players and coaches regarding next week's game. Also, Michael Rosenberg wrote an article entitled, "Bring on the Buckeyes." Over at the Detroit News, there is an AP article, entitled "Finally, No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 2 Michigan is a reality." Also in the News, legendary columnist Jerry Green wrote an article entitled "Border battle reaches uncharted territory." Mr. Green provides some history of the storied rivalry including some interesting behind-the-scenes details of the 1973 "Rose Bowl Scandal" where the Big Ten athletic directors chose OSU over Michigan after the teams played to a 10-10 tie. The 1973 game was the last time both teams were undefeated and untied entering the game. Unlike 1973, I can assure you there will be a winner declared on the field this year rather than a vote of the Big Ten athletic directors. Go Blue!
