You see, it's sad that you did all that research, because it shows you are a complete loser who cares way too much about Michigan!
What is sad is what passes as "research" in the eyes of a wolverine. One google search, less than a minute of reading, and maybe a minute to type it up and you think I have spent hours on this. Further, you call me a loser for simply having enough brains to use a computer and drop some knowledge your way. I can here it now, "Stupid smart guy!" "Who does he thinks he is?" Of course, I imagine the reaction you are having is similar to that of a caveman and fire.

Well, if you spent several minutes formulating a response, I would say that means you care too much. We are the program with the most all-time wins, and we have a 58-44 record against OSU. Whatever you say can't change that. If you think our record against you is inflated because you used to be terrible, well, I can say that all of your teams under Tressel were dirty and inflated *your* side of the record. It goes both ways.
I never said the record against us was inflated, I simply explained, as simply as I could, how the all-time record between us and AACC does not weigh heavily on our minds. I will try to use smaller words going forward.
Many of you guys love to fall to the all time record against us in a crunch. Many of you remind me of a child and his/her blanket. That record brings you a lot of comfort. You guys don't seem to realize that it doesn't mean a damn thing to us because we know what is relevant in recent years. Most Buckeyes cringe wen we hear the words "Cooper Years" and I can't help but imagine you guys cannot draw a whole lot of comfort from the last decade of the Tressel era.
The one interesting thing about those two eras is they are defined by the OSU coach. Carr receives little credit. I would guess that is because he was wildly successful against Cooper and disastrous against Tressel.
I like how OSU fans call the University of Michigan AACC when it is better than OSU academically.
Well except that we went on to an UNDISPUTED title and multiple BCS wins while you guys are ecstatic to beat Va Tech. Tressel ended your program as a top ten entity. We hired a two time National Champ as coach. you guys? Yeah, next.

Wait, what was Tressel's track record when he was hired at OSU? What about Woody Hayes' track record before he was hired at OSU?
Um, Tressel actually had four National Championships. Before you say they were 1-AA....Appalachian State says "Hi"
They were 1-AA, so they are meaningless. Regardless of the fact Michigan lost to Appalachian State.
How could they be meaningless when they were CLEARLY a harbinger of 9-1?
And the fact that THEEEEEEEE Ohio State University couldn't find a higher regarded coach than a 1-AA coach is pretty funny. Shows how highly top coaches around the nation hold OSU.
That makes no sense.
Youve won more games than us, are much better academically as well. But as indisputable as those facts are this is equally as diamond-hard: Ann Arbor was Jim Tressel's play thing and she hasnt been the same since.
This would hold water if we didn't just hire the one of, if not the, most sought after coach in the country.

You mean the same coach that faked heart issues to back out of the SEC?
Well, it's clearly a chip on their shoulder. Everyone knows OSU is basically an average state school and football factory where the football coach is a bigger figure than the school president.
Michigan beat OSU in Ann Arbor last year, so yeah, it hasn't been the same since Tressel left.
It's hilarious people talk about him faking health issues when every account says he had serious health issues. I mean, being the moat dominant coach in the country certainly warrants faking health issues lol. And basically every program outside of Alabama was after him, but he faked health issues to get out of being one of the few best people in the country at his craft.
Of course Michigan's record doesn't weigh heavily on your minds because it doesn't fit your argument. Carr isn't given as much credit during the Cooper years because we had multiple coaches beating him. Tressel has his era because he beat 2 different Michigan coaches so therefore it's his era. I think it's unfair that Carr isn't given more credit considering he owned Cooper and was beaten by a coach that will always lack something that Carr already has. A spot in the College Football Hall Of Fame. Even as good as Tressel was he'll never be inducted because of his shady past with Ohio and Youngstown St. Congrats on having the Barry Bonds of coaching. Michigan's overall record against OSU may not matter to you just as Mr. asterisk, Jim Tressel's won't mean much to us.
Hey I just thought of something. Calipari and Tressel have a lot in common. They both have a history of leaving a program on probation.
Because he saw the writing on the wall at Florida. Without Tim Tebow, he wasn't going to be successful. It's probably going to be the same after Braxton leaves.
Why was he successful with Chris leak, Alex smith, and Josh cribbs? I know it's hard for Wal mart wolverines, but let's be a little logical.
Of course this doesn't even address your original point that other coaches don't hold the job in high esteem yet we were able to grab one of the most esteemed coaches in the country, regardless of what your ignorant mind understands.
Tressel also left your program as Big Ten also-rans and irrelevant on the national stage. Denard Robinson is really fast tho.
Oh my! How was Urban ever successful with the eventual #1 overall pick?!?!? A senior QB who had been near the top of the SEC QB categories the 3 years before Urban got there?!?!?!?!
What are you talking about Josh Cribbs for btw, he went to Kent State.
One of the most esteemed coaches that only Penn State and OSU pursued. Gotcha.
B1G also rans?
I think you could use some time at AACC, you seem to lack education.
Oh, and for all Michigan fans, remember, Rich Rod was not the reason for Michigan's demise from 2008-2010. It was Jim Tressel.
