College Football Showdown
Michigan Vs. Ohio State

By Brian Briggs

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. )
