Michigan Football seems to be taking their rivalry with Ohio State even more seriously than ever. Their new footballs for this upcoming season now have “Made In USA, Not In Ohio” printed on the ball itself. They have also added “134″ to the football because the upcoming season will be Michigan’s 134th team. No word on whether or not Ohio State will print “Made In USA, Not In That State Up North” on their footballs soon.
BEST OF MAXIM
Mark May, ESPN college football analyst and professional Ohio State troll, is back at it again hating on the Buckeyes. Today, May let his Twitter followers know why he didn’t put OSU in his preseason top 10.
He posted the below on Facebook, which auto-feeds into his Twitter account. (It’s surprising that he actually figured out how to do that.)
Here we have two completely different...
If you weren’t a big-time college athlete, chances are that you probably wish you were. But one guy have may have gone a bit too far in attempting to make that dream a reality.

Giovanni Strassini has gone to incredible lengths to prove that he played tight end for Ohio State. However, his playing career is more like a giant hoax than anything else.
Junior cornerback, Doran Grant.
Expectations will be high this fall in Columbus, Ohio, as Urban Meyer and the Ohio State Buckeyes figure to be ranked inside the preseason top three and favored in every game they play. The Buckeyes have become the trendy pick to play in Pasadena for a national championship on January 6, 2013. With ten starters returning, their offense should have...
A 4 Star recruit out of Catholic Memorial (West Roxbury, MA), Sophomore Cornerback Armani Reeves was a late 2012 commitment to the Buckeyes after decommitting from Penn State following the Sandusky scandal. Reeves joined best friend and high school teammate Camren Williams as commits from what is not normally an Ohio State pipeline out of Massachusetts. The scandal, as well as Urban...
The Buckeye Empire Summer Series continues with a look back at the 2012 season and the cornerback position, Bradley Roby and Travis Howard in particular.
In 2012, the Ohio State defense struggled mightily at times on the defensive end and many of those struggles centered around the defensive backfield. At a school sometimes referred to as DBU or CBU-Defensive Back University or Corner...
Michigan and Ohio State do battle perennially for the Buckeye State’s best talent. Childhood allegiances often come into play in these tussles, but isn’t a factor for 2015 Warren (OH) Harding DE/TE, Hjalte Froholdt. The Denmark native is new to the rivalry, but after being offered by both schools and subsequently visiting each, he is getting a crash course in rivalry basics.
If you like college football--not just your team, but the game as a whole--then you are more than familiar with one of the most historic and one of the longest rivalries in college football between the Michigan Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes.
Like most rivals, they don't like each other. Again like most rivals, they don't hold back in making sure the other knows how...
The odds for the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner are already out in Vegas, and Johnny Manziel is predictably the favorite (4/1) as he tries to defend the hardware. Ohio State QB Braxton Miller (7/1) and USC WR Marquise Lee (9/1) round out the Top 3, with AJ McCarron, Aaron Murray and De'Anthony Thomas not far behind. That's a pretty solid Top 6, but if you're actually looking...
The online book Bovada has updated their Heisman odds, and the group at the top appears slightly more defined. Johnny Manziel is indeed your favorite, taking slight chalk honors over Braxton Miller. No surprise there, especially when you look at Ohio State’s schedule. The group at 12/1 is certainly interesting, with Teddy Bridgewater (on the topic [...]
Ohio State has started to look at the 2015 class, and several out of state prospects hold offers. Christian Kirk is an exciting receiver prospect out of Arizona.
