There are a ton of great rivalry games this week in college football, but it’s no surprise which one has already generated the most trash talk among players and fans: Ohio State-Michigan. It’s perhaps the greatest rivalry in sports — we’ve already had OSU LB Ryan Shazier make fun of the Wolverines, and you won’t find an “M” anywhere in sight on campus in Columbus — and it’s only Monday.
Now, Ohio State safety Christian Bryant is taking the trash talk to the next level. Bryant tweeted a photo of a Michigan jersey getting stomped, and seemed to imply that the Wolverines deserve #NORESPECT:

Bryant won’t actually be playing against Michigan, as he has been out for most of the season with a broken ankle. Despite that, he’s still fired up for the big rivalry game — it’s the absolute “must-win” matchup on the schedule each season for the Buckeyes.

Ohio State fans have a few traditions regarding the Buckeyes’ rivalry against Michigan. One is the “Mirror Lake Jump”. Another is the removal of all “M’s” on campus. But the most important might be the refusal to actually utter the word “Michigan” – players, coaches and fans usually refer to the Wolverines as “That Team Up North.” Yesterday, head coach Urban...
Ohio State’s campus is buzzing as the football team gets set to battle rival Michigan (or The Team Up North) this week. Off the field, there is one tradition that the students love to participate in every year: the Mirror Lake Jump.

Last year in September, Ohio State football head coach Urban Meyer brought up his current quarterback BraxtonMiller and mentioned him in the same sentence as his most famous quarterback Tim Tebow. On 97.1 The Fan, Meyer said of the two quarterbacks, “Very similar guys,” Meyer said. “They’re both competitive human beings. They’re both very talented people. Braxton has...
Back in December CollgeSpun.com reported that they had learned through The Lantern that the upcoming year’s Mirror Lake jump could cost Ohio State upwards of $46,000.
It’s noted that the costs to clean up, repair landscaping, additional police and medical personnel availability can add up to the hefty total.
