Michigan-Ohio State has always been “The Game.” OSU and UM have always been the big boys of the Big Ten. But are we approaching a new era of clear-cut domination on the gridiron between the Wolverines and Buckeyes? Brady Hoke has brought an attitude to Michigan that reminds many of Bo, Moeller and Carr. In two seasons as head coach Hoke has already won a BCS Bowl. He beat Ohio State his first season while coming close his second. And he has also bought the “Big House Mystique” back by not yet losing a game at home. Urban Meyer has also kept Ohio State as a national power after a scandal and year probation that could have set a program back a number of seasons. He is 12-0 at THE Ohio State University and could very well be 26-0 after next season. He clearly recruits like the SEC man he once was, and is attracting the same SEC level of talent that he did at Florida. Both schools are good as usual, but this appears to be the makings of a new big 2, little 8 era that existed back to the days of Bo and Woody. Ohio State and Michigan ended this recruiting season with no.3 and 6 ranked classes, respectively. In recruiting…any team that lands a top ten class is pretty even. The next ranked Big Ten school this recruiting season is Nebraska at 23. So expect to see a Michigan-Ohio State Big Ten title game really soon. Both traditional powerhouses should be at the top of their divisions to stay very soon. If Hoke and Meyer can effectively translate their good recruiting numbers into wins, which they have both proven the ability to do, this may be the beginning of a new era of domination for Michigan and Ohio State. It will be the 1960s and 1970s all over again. The post New era of Michigan-Ohio State Domination? appeared first on The Sports Bank.Net.
