Why there should NOT be an OSU-#1/Michigan-#2 rematch

There are many good reasons, and they are listed pretty succinctly here. But the BEST reason is this:
What are you looking for?
Here’s what would happen in a rematch. 1) Ohio State wins. We’ve done that. 2) Ohio State wins in a blowout. Great. We’ve reestablished that the Buckeyes are better than Michigan. 3) Michigan wins in a close game. Whoopee. Now what? We can’t play a third game. 4) Michigan wins in a blowout. Do we then just blow off the latest Game of the Century just played in Columbus? You'll be entertained, but the issue still likely won't truly be settled.

You're not taking into account home field advantage, which is considered by bookmakers to be worth 3 points. Therefore, it was a statistical tie; winner on a neutral field is the best team.

They are afraid of losing to MICHIGAN on a nuetral site and have the entire state of Ohio commit suicide by drinking Jim Jones Kool-Aid for losing the National Title to Michigan after winning the conference title at home.

Oh please. Michigan was given so many favors it wasn't even funny. The score was much higher than what was portrayed on the board. Was Michigan EVER leading? NO. Did you NOT catch the UNCALLED false start on their first play? Oh, and the "roughing the center" call?


I have never seen bigger crybabies and whiners, or as YOU call it, FANS.
