Both teams are enjoying good seasons and the game promises to be an exciting one. Each time OSU-Michigan rolls around, I am reminded of an evening many, many years ago when I had occasion to meet one of the major figures in that storied football rivalry. The episode began on a crisp late fall evening as I sat quietly on a bench waiting for a bus. Read More
