The Game. ESPN's top rated rivalry in all of sports. Nothing, NOTHING in sports can stand up to this type of rivalry. NOTHING.

Ohio State vs. Michigan

I wrote this week's time waster earlier this week because this week's time waster takes place this Saturday.

The Game. The 10 Years War. The Snow Bowl. The Game of the Century. I could go on and on, but the football rivalry between The Ohio State University Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines is indescribable until one sees the actual game. The word for the rivalry is beyond hate. It's hate with a passion. The two teams despise each other, but there is great respect.

Watching the showdown between the Buckeyes and Wolverines is this week's time waster. The date of the game is circled on every hardcore Ohio State and Michigan fan's calendar. The rivalry was ranked as the top rivalry in sports by ESPN. The football matchup goes back over 100 years, starting back in 1897.

The Game will be televised by ABC and ESPN3 this Saturday, November 27 at noon, Eastern Time. This year The Game will be played at Columbus, Ohio, in Ohio Stadium (aka The Horseshoe).

The Buckeyes will be playing for a share of the Big 10 title, and another set of gold pants. It has become a tradition for every player on the Buckeyes squad to get a pair of golden pants after any victorious Michigan game. This began after Francis Schmidt, a former Ohio State coach, after being asked how they Bucks would do against Michigan, quipped in 1934, "They put their pants on one leg at a time, the same as we do!"

The Wolverines are just trying to salvage a horrible season. They are tied for seventh in the Big 10, with a 7-4 record overall, and 3-4 in the Big 10. Rich Rodriguez's job is likely to be on the line, and Michigan fans don't want to see another bad season worsened by another Ohio State loss.

Will those Ohio State players get those precious gold pants? Or will they fail to get a share of the Big 10 conference championship for the first time in six years? The answers will start coming on ABC and ESPN3 at noon.

Go Buckeyes!
