Crown Em'

They were who we thought they were!

Those are the words of a angry Denny Green last year after his Cardinals lost to the Bears on Monday Night Football.

While I won't go as far as to say that I knew this would happen...I can safely say that I am not surprised. LSU made Ohio State look like a very under-prepared team. Tressell was somehow, out coached again by an SEC team. And for what its worth, gave the whole conference a black eye by laying down for a second year in a row in the BCS title game.

Now personally, I could care less about how the Big Ten is viewed by other fans from around the country. I am a Michigan fan first and foremost. The Big Ten is way down on the list. I simply just don't get up to see other schools play. It think its fun to watch a good game...but I'll never get as emotionally involved as I do when the Maize and Blue line up. Do I want the Big Ten to do well? It depends. Usually the answer is yes. But when it comes to Michigan's most hated rivals...Ohio State, Michigan State and yes even Notre Dame...there's no way I will cheer for those teams. Never.

But like I said, I am a sap for good football. If I'm going to watch a game, I at least want it to be a good one. Last night was not a good game. Actually, none of the BCS games this year were much fun to watch.

But what I want to know did LSU look so damn good against, what I thought was a pretty good Ohio State team? And the obvious answer is...Ohio State was just not prepared at all. Their conference was pretty week this year...and I'll even admit that Michigan was not real test either. Their non-conference schedule was laughable. Ohio State was simply not ready for a big game. Why? Because they haven't played in one since last year.

So in closing...the year that began with so much hype for Michigan...ends it an Ohio State national title flop...again. I don't know how many more times this will happen again...frankly I'd rather have seen LSU and USC line it up, at least we'd get a better game. And we'd know definitively who the best team in the country is.

So let the excruciatingly long and boring off-season begin!
