Ohio State vs. Michigan. Is there a better college football rivalry?

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A Columbus judge says he'll let an inmate stay in jail instead of moving him to prison right away so he can see the Ohio State-Michigan game on TV this Saturday.


Jeff Renne told Franklin County Common Pleas Judge Richard Sheward yesterday that he would plead guilty as long as he could stay in the county jail through the weekend. Inmates at the jail can watch TV, but it's off-limits at the Orient reception center, where they are held before they're moved to one of the state's prisons.


Renne was charged with forgery. He says if the Buckeyes win on Saturday, he'll still be "on cloud nine" despite being in prison.


Judge Sheward says he granted Renne's request because it's Michigan week and he thought he should do his part for the Buckeyes.

Army vs. Bush?

I would agree, though...ARMY v. NAVY is tops.

There are some others that rank higher than Michigan v. THE Ohio State

Alabama v. Auburn is a perfect example. EVERYONE in Alabama falls into one of the two categories - An Auburn fan or an Bama fan.

OSU v Michigan is the biggest of them all, mostly because both teams are almost always good. Can Navy-Army or Bama-Auburn say that?

harvard-yale is another one...

army-navy gets high ratings, is always talked about, and is always a huge game despite the fact that the teams are usually not very good. army-navy is deffinetly tops in college football IMO...

the greatest rivalry, IMO, in all of sports is also in college... that little rivalry between two schools seperated by 8 miles and 2 shades of blue...

I think the greatest rivalry in all of sports was on national display in October...Red Sox/Yanks.
For college football, OSU-Mich is certainly near the top. Army-Navy is a bigger rivalry, but the quality of the football has been poor in recent decades, so many people don't think of that rivalry as much as they did yrs ago (And this year Navy is gonna blow Army's doors off).
Other big rivalries:
Auburn/Bama
Texas/Oklahoma
Harvard/Yale ("The Game")

20-30 yrs ago Oklahoma/Nebraska or USC/UCLA might have had a legit claim as the biggest rivalry.
But I think if you ask someone in any region which is the biggest rivalry, they will choose the one from their particular region.

All of these are great rivalries. My favorite would be Duke-North Carolina, with Oklahoma/Texas football coming in second. I'm also a Michigan fan, so I'm fired up for this weekend. Go Blue!

red sox-yanks is deffinetly a great rivalry... and it's at or near the top... but i still have to put duke-carolina first... the reason being... well... let's just come out with it... red sox vs. yankees has been a rediculously one sided rivalry. the yankees always win

when a team has lost only 1 game in 2 years... it goes beyond just pure shit luck. yes, they have been very lucky in their run... that flag in the endzone against miami besides the point. but if they weren't good enough to put themselves IN the position to get lucky, then all the shit luck in the world wouldn't even matter.
