Michigan vs. Ohio State: The Rivalry

Since 1897, the universities of Michigan and Ohio State have faced off in what has become the most hotly contested rivalry in college football, if not all American sport. This HBO Sports documentary takes a look at the origins of the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry, as well as how the contest evolved through the decades into the all-encompassing rivalry it has become today. No matter what the ranking, the football programs at these two schools gear up every year with a common goal: to beat their archrival on the third weekend in November, and gain bragging rights for a year. The Rivalry: Michigan vs. Ohio State arrives just in time for the 2008 showdown!

HBO out did themselves with this program! No matter if you are a die hard Michigan or Ohio State fan, you will appreciate the rich history and humor this program offers. For those of us who knew Bo and Woody, it will bring a few tears to your eyes too. An excellent compilation of the rivalry between two of America's greatest college teams ever!

I have watched several "Ohio State - Michigan Rivalry" DVDs....and this is far and away the best one. HBO really did thier homework, produced it superbly, and captured the emotion and devotion of athletes, coaches and fans involved in this rivalry.

Ohio State-Michigan. Michigan-Ohio State. No matter how you arrange the names, it's good old fashion hate and contempt. HBO knocked this one out of the park with a tremendous documentary on what is arguably the best rivalry in sport. Apologies to Yankee and Red Sox fans. The intensity of these two proud state universities is well chronicled and presented in a first class production. A definite must for college football fans across the country. It goes without saying a must for all Buckeyes and Wolverines. Or, is that Wolverines and Buckeyes?

HBO did their homework and respected both Universities, coaches and players! It hugs your soul and brings a tear or two. I was apart of the "Ten Year War" of Bo and Woody and I was very impressed with all the facts presented. Life goes on, but no one will never have the effect that Bo and Woody had on the players or the fans. GO BLUE!!!

This was done with such emotion and kept neutral that its enjoyable for everyone. It is very informative (going back to Fielding Yost, Chic Harley, Tom Harmon) and has so much to offer for all college football fans.

There's a lot of history here that even us grads didn't know. The video is well done and provides a fair assessment to both sides.

If you're from Ohio (or that other state) you'll love this. Great history of the rivalry. You won't be disappointed.

As a huge Michigan fan, this was a must buy for me. I have to say HBO really did a great job putting this together. There were a number of things I learned about the rivalry that I didn't know before. There were a few issues I had, though. First, the video was short. It barely reached the hour mark. I realize that it was a "Made-For-TV" documentary, but considering the Fab Five documentary was in depth and informative, I was expecting more. Second, it was made in 2008. I was expecting there to be more of Jim Tressel, Lloyd Carr (there wasn't anything with Carr in the video) and the (then) current Ohio St-Mich rivalry. Third, I think they could've went further with the rivalry. In my opinion, and lots of other people's minds, it's the biggest rivalry in all of sports. I thought it should've been treated like that.

Still, it was a very enjoyable watch and for what it is, it gets the point across.
