Michigan Putting The Flag They Planted At Ohio State Into Their Football Museum Is The Lamest Move Of All Time
Let me start off by saying this: winners can do whatever they want. So if we didn't want Michigan to plant a flag into the 50 yard line at Ohio Stadium, then we shouldn't have let them run for 500 yards, throw for 1000 more, and
beat embarrass us by 22 points in Ohio Stadium. If you give up four 70+ yard touchdowns to your rival in a winner take all match with the entire world watching, then you don't get to say what happens after that.
I mean, when Ohio State kicked a field goal in the 4th quarter to make it a one score game, here's how the final two Michigan possessions went:
1 play, 75 yards, touchdown (12 seconds)
3 plays, 92 yards, touchdown (60 seconds)
When we needed to toughen up, they bullied us over and over again. The fact of the matter is they are free to do whatever they want. It doesn't matter that Ohio State didn't plant any flags when they won 15 of 16 games in the rivalry and instead chose to take the high road and win with class. Michigan chose to act in a Bush League way and I have no problem with that.
However, I think we can all agree that the move they just pulled is perhaps the lamest move of all time:
Lmao what? Win the rivalry game twice in a century and you place a FLAG into a museum like it is some sort of historic artifact? Or, you know, a trophy? I get they don't have a National Championship that has ever been won on the field, but a program with so much pride cannot be doing things like this. This has quickly reminded me, no matter how ugly our last two games with them have been, exactly where both programs are these days. Ohio State admits they FAILED with an 11-1 season, making the playoff, and being one point / one targeting call away from winning ANOTHER national title. Michigan put a flag into a museum for a regular season victory.
Let me say this: I am officially torn on how I want the Buckeyes to respond when we head into Ann Arbor this November and remind the world that the last few years have been a classic blind squirrel finds a couple nuts every two decades situation. Part of me wants to act like we've been there before, like we have many times lately, and take the high road. But part of me wants a Joe Horn cell phone type planned celebration and see if these losers can take it as much as they can dish it. Because they've certainly been dishing it and playing the "should've beat us then" card. Maybe we fill the extra water coolers with gasoline, dump them on the field after a victory, and burn the whole place to the ground? I'll admit that seems like that would be too much for one win. Then again, so is enshrining this flag in a museum.
