MICHIGAN vs "OHIO STATE" IN NCAA OPENER
The Weasel Basketball team drew a four-seed in the Big Dance this week, earning the right to play the "Ohio State" Bobcats.
Many know the Bobcats as "Ohio", but at the University in Michigan, "Ohio" is the team from Columbus.
Brady Hoke has been calling OSU "Ohio" since he crawled across the country on his belly to land his dream job. More recently, John Belein has been calling the Buckeyes "Ohio", as if he can't read the league stationery on his own desk. It's reported that the UM AD has informally ratified the practice of referring to the only conference team from the State of Ohio as, "Ohio".
So naturally, in UM lingo, their opponent this week is, indeed, "Ohio State". Pay close attention to all interviews with UM officials to track their use of the words "Ohio State" when describing the Bobcats.
