As if you needed any kind of intro to this one. Big Ten regular conference season champions, Michigan, the same team whose bench celebrates every layup like a tournament buzzer beater takes on Ohio State, a tough to watch, insanely large delta possessing team, but your insanely large delta possessing team.
The Buckeyes lost the lone regular season meeting between the two, the Wolverines' first win in Columbus since Jared Sullinger was in 8th grade. Revenge is always easy to root for, but it's extra second nature when it's the Wolverines you're going against.
Below is your Ohio State-Michigan GameThread. Hate week makes an impromptu March return, so we might as well get our money's worth. FWIW, Ohio State leads the all-time series with Michigan, 93-74, 17-5 under coach Thad Matta. Let's make it 94.
