The argument goes that since the teams have been placed in opposite divisions, THE GAME, has been forever diminished. Eventually it will dawn on people that since results of the Michigan/Michigan State game has a greater impact on the division standings, and a trip to the Big Ten (+4) conference championships, it will be become the marque match-up of the season.
The annual excessive jubilation that surrounds winning or the excessive angst that surrounds the losing of the annual Wolverines v Buckeyes football game is still very much in evidence. While Ohio State is to be congratulated for an undefeated season, they should not be considered as good as the top teams in the country. I think Alabama for example is far better. Nor will they get the chance to prove their worth in a bowl this year, nor should they.
