Fleeing the Earth

As a fan of Michigan sports and especially University of Michigan football, I can’t help but experience an inordinate amount of glee in the problems currently roiling the Ohio State football program.  You can say I’m a bad person for feeling this way but if you ask a Buckeyes fan, I’m sure they’ll admit to feeling the same way when Gary Moeller was forced out as the coach at Michigan.  Sure, you’d like to be able to beat a team on their own terms but when they’ve got your number, it’s a little satisfying to see the person responsible for that get the boot.

And it’s not just football.  With the Tigers playing in the same division as the Indians and the Indians currently whipping everyone’s butts, it’s just one more reason to dislike Ohio.  But maybe I should be a little more empathetic and feel sorry for Ohio.  After all, there must be some truth to this graphic:

So, Ohio, I’m going to go easy on you.  You’ve had a rough year with LeBron leaving town and Tressel’s sweater vests hiding a growing laundry list of sins.  But when the dust settles and Tressel gets forced out, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t going to have a drink to celebrate.  Same goes for when the Indians come back to earth.

They need to start giving prospective college coaches a lie detector test or something. Where did all the honest people go? Space, I guess ;o)

At least Ohio has the Toledo Mud Hens…but then again Toledo is pretty close to Michigan, so maybe we rubbed off on them a bit. If it’s any more consilation, Lake Superior State knocked the Buckeyes out of the hockey playoffs this season, too.
