Less than 24 hours remaining until the biggest college football game... ever.
#1 Ohio State vs. #2 Michigan, in Columbus. This isn't just any football game. The rankings make it more intense this year, but really, Ohio State could be ranked #499 and Michigan could be ranked #500 and it would STILL be the only game that really mattered in a season.
My alumni parents will be there tailgating at dawn (such crazy kids) along with 150,000 of their closest friends.
I did not go to Ohio State. I went to Miami, a few hours southwest. While I have never once regretted that decision, I have wished on occasion that I could have gone to both. I grew up an Ohio State girl, and the nice thing about that is you can remain an Ohio State girl. They let you, even if you don't go to school there. I've been to games, lots of skull sessions, I know what happens to you if you lose your hat in the marching band while on field, I know lots of good jokes (in fact, I could give you directions to Ann Arbor when I was about 8 years old: north until you smell it, west until you step in it!) and best of all, I once owned a haute couture original with Go Bucks all over it. Beat that.
