Open Letter to RichRod: Please Deliver a Win Over Ohio State

Dear Rich Rodriguez,

The University of Michigan players, alumni, and fans have been dying for a win over the hated Ohio State Buckeyes. Please give us a win in what is clearly a “trap game” for the Buckeyes this Saturday, November 21, 2009 at 12:00 pm in Ann Arbor.

The Buckeyes have secured a Rose Bowl appearance and the Big 10 Championship. With all of that already in the bag for them before this game….you never know.

For Michigan, a win would give them .500 record, as they are currently 5-6, with only one Big 10 victory. The Wolverines should throw everything they have into this game that they have available in their playbooks!

Not that I am counting, but the Wolverines are currently on a five game losing streak to the Buckeyes, and have not won since their victory on November 22, 2003. The Wolverines were ranked 4th, and the Buckeyes were ranked 6th. Michigan won 35-21, and countless current NFL players were involved in this game.

For Michigan on that day, Chris Perry carried the load with 154 yards on 31 carries and 2 TD’s in addition to 55 receiving yards. Michigan QB John Navarre threw for 278 yards, 2 TD’s and a pick, and Braylon Edwards had 7 grabs, 130 yards ,and 2 TD’s.

The Buckeyes had Craig Krenzel and Scott McMullen at QB, but the stars of the show for the Buckeyes were future NFL wide-outs Michael Jenkins and Santonio Holmes. Jenkins had 132 yards receiving and Holmes had 121 yards and 2 TD’s.

Since 2003, the Wolverines have failed miserably against the Buckeyes, as seen below:

  • 2004 – Michigan at Ohio State – Buckeyes Won 37-21
  • 2005 – Ohio State at Michigan – Buckeyes Won 25-21
  • 2006 – Michigan at Ohio State – Buckeyes Won 42-39
  • 2007 – Ohio State at Michigan – Buckeyes Won 14-3
  • 2008 – Michigan at Ohio State – Buckeyes Won 42-7

Last year, Rich Rodriguez referred to the Ohio State game as “just a game.” This game is so much more than a game Coach, and here is why…

  91. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
