On November 18, 2006 the first game of the century since the last one will take place in Columbus, Ohio. The #1 OSU Buckeyes versus #2 Michigan Wolverines. Now most experts do in-depth analysis of the teams to come up with a winner. However, their picks are no better than a monkey throwing darts at a random number generator. We think we can do better than that by comparing some other factors that have nothing to do with the game at all.
This is a completely unbiased analysis of the game. (Editor's Note: Brian is University of Michigan alumni with season tickets who lives two miles from the Big House. His wife is also an alum and works for U of M hospital. His kids could sing "Hail to the Victors" very early in life. His eyes are blue. He thinks Ohio stinks. )
