Storyline

The 99-game history of the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry is told by the participants - players, coaches, historians, broadcasters and fans. Through a series of interviews we tell the tale of the annual battle between these two Big Ten powers with game footage and photographs. The show is narrated by football legend Pat Summerall but the real story is told through the words of the greats who did battle on the field in "The Horseshoe" in Columbus, Ohio and "The Big House" in Ann Harbor, Michigan. This is the definitive history of arguably the most intense border war rivalry in college football, the OHIO STATE BUCKEYES and the MICHIGAN WOLVERINES.

Great documentary. . .
26 March 2008 | by mcarey032See all my reviews

While I am not a fan of either team, my family roots are in Ohio and I remember my grandfather telling me the storied games between Michigan and Ohio State. They were great stories. My grandmother even sang a song that was in the documentary called "Don't give a Damn for the Whole State of Michigan". The documentary also tells of the stories of Woody Hayes, the great coach who was known for his tough coaching tactics and outstanding results on the field. The documentary provided me with images that had been long talked about in my family for years. It was great! The funny thing is that I am a Notre Dame fan, so I guess that I am the black sheep of the family, but nevertheless this documentary gives great insight to the football culture between these two proud states. It also is always a great reminder for me of my grandparents who one is passed away and the other who has Alzheimer's. It will always be a positive memory and I can't wait for it to come out on DVD. Highly recommend it.
