The Game – Michigan leads 58 – 49, with 6 ties, and one vacated win by the Bucks from 2010 season (tattoos anyone)
This year is the 115th meeting
22 Big Ten titles decided outright, with 27 others affected by game
19 National Titles – Michigan 11, Ohio State 8
94 Bowl Appearances – Ohio State 48, Michigan 46
Big Ten Titles – Michigan 42, Ohio State 36
YHC split up the PAX into teams of Michigan fans, Bucknuts, and Other fans. There were only 4 Bucknuts out, so all of the PAX that could care less about either team joined the Bucknuts. Once divided into teams, YHC called for a mosey to parking lot next to the practice field
Pre-Game – Warm-up
An extensive warm-up was planned, but was inadvertently skipped by the Q. Instead, YHC shared some more rivalry knowledge and started to setup the teams for the first quarter.
1st Quarter – When Animals Attack/Bear Crawl Freeze Tag
YHC focused on the early years of The Game.
First game – 1897
First Ohio State win – 1919, 13-3
Birth of Ohio State Alma Mater “Carmen Ohio” was written on the train ride home from The Game in 1902, an 86-0 victory for Michigan
Ohio State joined Big Ten in 1912
Michigan rejoined Big Ten in 1917 after being out for 10 years
First game in Ohio Stadium in 1922, Wolverines shut out Buckeyes 19-0 in front of 71K fans
1934 – 1937 Ohio State shutout Michigan, outscoring them 114-0 in that time
Each team counted off by 4. YHC explained the rules of the game and let people know what role they played on the team.
1 = Offense
2 = Defense
3 = Punt/Kick
4 = Return
Offense can freeze people
Defense can unfreeze people
Special teams can freeze or unfreeze
If frozen, stay in plank until unfrozen
7 points if get whole team frozen
7 points with most frozen when time is called
The boundaries were Cougar lane, the sewer grate in the middle of the parking lot, and the curbs on the north and south side of the parking lot. The teams started on opposite sides by the curb behind them and YHC yelled go.
The PAX began to bear crawl toward each other, tagging and untagging until all men were frozen on one team. Michigan quickly won the first round to grab an early 7-0 lead. We played 2 more rounds, with Michigan winning both, jumping out to a 21-0 lead.
2nd Quarter – Big Ten Champs
While the PAX recovered, YHC dropped some more rivalry knowledge, focusing on the years leading up to Woody and Bo as well as their 10 year war.
1934 – 1937 Ohio State shutout Michigan, outscoring them 114-0 in that time
1950 Snow Bowl
Blizzard, OSU had option to cancel game and guarantee a Big Ten championship
OSU decided to play the game
45 punts, some on 1st down
Michigan won 9-3 with no first downs and no completions.
Scored on a blocked punt safety and a blocked punt that went out the back of the end zone for a touchdown
OSU coach Wes Fesler was fired, leading to the hiring of Woody Hayes
Woody & Bo
OSU 12-6 under Woody, 1957 game first with more than 100K fans
1968 game, OSU one 50-14, with Buckeyes going for 2 on final touchdown
Michigan coach was fired after 1968 game, leading to Bo Schembechler hiring and the start of the 10 year war
First game in 1969, Michigan upset No. 1 Ohio State 24-12 with 6 interceptions
Between 1970 and 1975 Michigan and the Buckeyes were both top 5 teams in 4 of those games, with Michigan coming into each game undefeated and winning only once.
In 1973, both teams were undefeated and played to a 10-10 tie. A secret vote by other Big Ten AD’s sent the Buckeyes to the Rose Bowl
1976-1978, the Buckeyes failed to score a touchdown and Woody Hayes was fired after 1978 season after punching a Clemson player during the Gator Bowl.
YHC ran through the next segment of the beat down, in which we would pay homage to the 78 Big Ten Championships between the 2 teams – 42 for Michigan, 36 for OSU
In the first round, it would be Michigan O vs. Buckeyes D and Michigan Kick vs. Buckeyes Return (using assignments from prior round). All other units planked for round 1. Round 1 consisted of the movements below. First team (all PAX in all units) to finish all reps and get into plank would score 3 points for their team.
42 of each
Bat Wings (4 is 1) Forward Circles 11, Backward Circles 11, Seal Claps 10, Overhead Claps 10
Iron Mike (1 is 1) (Jump Lunges)
Ohio State won the first round, finally getting on the board for 3 points.
In the second round, it was Michigan D vs. Buckeyes O and Michigan Return vs. Buckeyes Kick. All other units were to Al Gore throughout.
First squad to complete gets 3 points for their team. Round 2 movements included:
36 of each
Thigh Masters (down, up, down, up is 1) 18 left then 18 right
Earthquake Merkins (High Plank to Low Plank)
Never Cross Dolly (Iron Cross Dolly)
Michigan won the second round, tacking on 3 more points.
In the second round, all units from both teams competed. First team with all PAX D one gets 7 points for their team. YHC had planned for 78 reps of each exercise, but called an audible, setting the rep count at 40.
Copperhead Lunge (4 count lunge) 20each leg
American Hammers (1 is 1)
Plank Jacks (1 is 1)
Ohio State prevailed on this one, picking up 7 points to draw within 14 points…24-10.
We had reached halftime, and YHC provided some more rivalry knowledge about the glorious Cooper years and the dark days that Jim Tressel brought to the Michigan faithful, that only got worse with Rich Rod and Urban.
Ohio State was undefeated in 1993, 1995, and 1996, and Michigan dashed their hopes each year.
1997 Ohio State looked to return the favor, but was not up to the task.
1998 saw Ohio State get its 2nd victory under Cooper.
But, the GOAT, Tom Brady led the Wolverines to victory in 1999 and Drew Henson did the same in 2000.
Cooper was fired after the 2000 season, making way for Jim Tressel.
In 2001, Buckeyes ran out to 23-0 halftime lead
I was on the 35 yard line watching on in disbelief and very drunk.
In the second half, Michigan came back but not enough.
Beginning of a dark period in the rivalry for Michigan fans.
In 2002, the Buckeyes beat Michigan on the last play of the game, intercepting a pass on the two-yard line as time expired. Ohio State went on to win the National Championship over Miami in the Fiesta Bowl.
2003 was the 100th game and Michigan got their only victory against Tressel’s Buckeyes
In 2006, Bo passed away and Michigan and Ohio State were No. 1 and No. 2 in the BCS, Ohio State won 42-39
Rich Rod, Tattoos, Fickell, Brady Hoke, Urban, Harbaugh
More misery at Michigan with Rich Rod taking over for Lloyd Carr, beginning with their worst season in history (3-9 and no bowl game for the first time in 33 years)
Rich Rod was run out after 3 seasons, he was so terrible, Michigan paid him to leave instead of letting his contract run out
2010 vacated season at Ohio State and replaced Tressel with Luke Fickell
Brady Hoke replaced Rich Rod and won his first match-up against the Buckeyes
It was the only Michigan victory in the last 14 years.
Urban Meyer took the helm and began the latest OSU win streak over Michigan with 6 straight
But 2018 is the Revenge Tour for Michigan, and this is the last stop on the tour
3rd Quarter – National Titles
Moving into the 3rd quarter, YHC once again had the teams facing off against each other. This time, it was time to recognize the National Titles the teams had won, 11 for Michigan (all but 1 before 1950), and 8 for OSU ( all but one after 1950).
The teams would do sideline to sideline (really curb to curb) 19s, with Wide Merkins (Werkins) and Burpees. They would start at 18 Werkins and 1 Burpee and work their way down to 11 Werkins and 8 Burpees and then back up again. First team to get all PAX into plank, gets 7 points. Michigan won this round again, opening up a 31-10 lead.
YHC filled the recovery with great quotes that have come out of the rivalry.
Preparedness / Work Ethic / Resilience
“Every day you either get better or you get worse. You never stay the same.” Bo Schembechler
“You’ll find out that nothing that comes easy is worth a dime. As a matter of fact, I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face. Never.” – Woody Hayes
“Realistic expectations for life are that we are going to be better today than we were yesterday, be better tomorrow than we were today. That’s a plan for success. So [the key is] simple: just work.” – Jim Harbaugh
“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.” – Archie Griffin
“In the face of adversity, you find out if you’re a fighter or a quitter. It’s all about getting up after you’ve been knocked down” – Archie Griffin
“Attack each day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind.” – Jim Harbaugh
“Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.” – Woody Hayes
“A man is always better than he thinks.” – Woody Hayes
“I think angry is the way to play…The best teams I’ve ever coached, the best players, are the ones who are always trying to prove something.” – Urban Meyer
“I have yet to be in a game where luck was involved. Well-prepared players make plays. I have yet to be in a game where the most prepared team didn’t win.” – Urban Meyer
“The hallmark of excellence, the test of greatness, is consistency” – Jim Tressel
“It does not matter the size of the man, rather the amount of effort the man is willing to put forth.” – Woody Hayes
“Any time you give a man something he doesn’t earn, you cheapen him. Our kids earn what they get, and that includes respect.” – Woody Hayes
“If you want to become a great leader, you need to prepare yourself to become a great leader, and the best way to do that is to study great leaders.” – Bo Schembechler
“If you can raise the level of effort and performance in those around you, you are officially a leader.” – Urban Meyer
“If you want to be a truly great leader, you’ll develop other great leaders below you.” – Bo Schembechler
“You can NOT be a leader unless you like people! You’ve got to spend time with them, so you know them. You’ve got to be interested in who they are, what they do away from the job, and how they think.” – Bo Schembechler
“Winning as a team is better than anything. It’s great to share success.” – Jim Harbaugh
With the PAX pretty well recovered, YHC had one final competition, a Bear Crawl inch worm race.
Each team would begin with 1 PAX on the line of the first parking lot. The next PAX in line for their the would bear crawl to the front of the line, get in plank, and yell Go Blue or Go Bucks to let the last guy in their line know to start their bear crawl. Each team continued this until traveling about 70 yards. The first team to get all PAX across opposite the finish line wins and gets 7 points for their team.
It was a close race and Michigan eeked out a win in this one by a second or 2.
There was no need for OT. YHC had planned a plank off, with the last team with the a PAX still planking winning it all.
But, this matchup was decided before OT, with Michigan beating Ohio State 38-10.
PAX moseyed back to the main parking area for the COT.
Know the 6
Unfortunately for the Michigan fans in the PAX, the results from the beatdown were not reflective of the results of The Game. Ohio State outplayed Michigan in every facet of the game.
Always an honor and a privilege to lead the men of F3!
