  “I brought you a little something.” ‘Twas the Night before Michigan  And all through the Land Not a Buckeye was stirring Not even the Band Urban was watching Film for “The Game” While Coach Brady Hoke Was listening for “KFC” to call his name Braxton was ready Running plays through his head While John Simon could barely  Stay in his bed The biggest game for the Buckeyes In a very long while The Buckeyes need to win  In this new Urban style The anticipation Is at an all time high The hopes of the Buckeyes Are tall as the sky Denard and his crew  Think they can take Buckeye Nation And turn them into  A bluish sensation Last year was tough for all Buckeye land It was hard to say That team took a stand The Seniors came back Bought into a plan Gave all that they could Give Urbs all they can Simon, and Boren, and Johnson To boot Gave Buckeye fans  A new reason to root All kinds of things asked So many sacrifices made The Buckeyes are back Cause of them they will stay New schemes and new coaches Are great fun and all The Seniors however  Allow the Bucks good football And then of course There’s that guy number 5 Boy can he juke And rumble and dive Then there’s Kid Carlos Who stepped up to the plate With Jordan Hall injured A great impression he seemed to make  However the biggest  Impact of them all Might have just come Far away from the ball The men in the trenches Paved the way for those backs Got into the weight room and got on the right track Linsley the center Often Urbs gives him praise He looked inside of himself And brought in new ways Hall and Mewhort are always great But that guy Mr. Fragel  Well his move was just fate A senior, a tight end Or so he thought But turns out a pass catcher Mr. Fragel was not  Put on some blubber But much muscle too Things started changing Urbs said “Fragel who?” Anchoring the line Reid Fragel just did It was a surprise to all  Maybe not to him A leader he is A leader he was Mr. Fragel we thank you For all that you’ve done “You and I both know what I want. Beat Michigan.” This group is special This 2012 Buckeye team A season that had started As only a dream The Buckeyes have gotten To that 11-0 The biggest rival of all Is the only one left to go Be thankful you Buckeyes  For all that we’ve got For a single year ago Things weren’t looking so hot A chance at history A chance at redemption We got stomped in the Big House Into our house, we won’t let them “It’s Michigan” “It’s Michigan” Woody did cry With that tone in his voice That tear in his eye That’s the passion we’ll need  To go into war To earn all you’ve done All you’ve fought for So Buckeyes go win one You’ve worked so darn hard Don’t let the Wolverines  Sniff more than a yard It’s time to go  And seal your fate You win it tomorrow You’ll be forever, a Buckeye Great.
