I'm sure the majority of us will be watching the big football game tonight. For roughly three hours, Columbus will be the focal point of America, and I would love to have a place to talk about it.
OSU comes into the game as a home underdog. USC has a reputation for beating up on Big 10 teams, and OSU has developed a reputation for getting beat up by non Big 10 teams. There has been much speculation around the country (sports talk radio) that Jim Tressel needs this victory to save his legacy at Ohio State. I don't agree with that talk because it's a regular season game, and the things that Tressel has done at OSU have been pretty damn impressive.
There have been some really good finishes today, including a big win for Michigan over a ranked Notre Dame team. In other league games, the Big 10 has not looked great, and it will be interesting to see if OSU can change that. Also, I need OSU to lose so that I can stay on course, and Ash will still owe me $5!
