Was Michigan-Ohio State really a classic?

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Terence Mann, Nov 22, 2006.

  1. They knew going in that it was going to be tough, but I too was really scared after Michigan's first TD. They got down the field in like 4 plays then when OSU took over they had to convert a few thrid downs.

    I watched every snap, heard every "You are looooooking Live."

    It was a 7.5 out of 10. Above average. Not great like USC-Notre Dame last year.

    I think calling it above average is a being a bit stingy with praise. I'd say very good, but perhaps not great. (Agreed that USC-Notre Dame last year was better, and great. So was the Rose Bowl.) The fact that this was No. 1 v. No. 2, and Ohio State and Michigan, however, made it more special than an ordinary very good game (if that makes sense). And that merits calling it a classic. Circumstances can also make a game a classic; I don't think that's defined solely by the action on the field.

    Was it THE all-time game for the ages?

    Probably not, but given all the hype - which really had been building for a month and then hit overdrive when it was set to be No. 1 vs. No. 2 - it was going to be next to impossible to live up to that billing. It was a very exciting game, and I certainly wouldn't qualify it as "a letdown."

    Then again, I think it's next to impossible to truly label a game's historic place in the days following it, especially this one, where you still have the bowls to go.
