Rob's Buckeye Notebook
By Rob Ogden
Ohio State players and coaches will get a chance to celebrate Thanksgiving, but not until after practice.
The Buckeyes will practice Thanksgiving Day at 9 a.m. Following senior tackle, players who are in driving distance of home will have the opportunity to go home to celebrate, an Ohio State spokesman said.
Those whose homes are not within driving distance will celebrate with either teammates or coaches.
The getaway will be short-lived, however. Players will have to be back on campus by 10:30 a.m. Friday and will depart for Ann Arbor at 3 p.m, the spokesman said.
It isn't unusual for the Michigan game to be Thanksgiving weekend, but it is unusual for "the game" to be this late.
The Buckeyes have never played Michigan as late on the calendar as Nov. 30, and haven't played a regular-season game that late since 1911, when the Buckeyes faced Cincinnati.
From 1892-to-1904, Ohio State played a Thanksgiving Day game nearly every year.
Michigan dealership giving away cars if Wolverines shutout Buckeyes
Victory Honda Monroe, a car dealership about 40 miles southeast of Ann Arbor, is running a promotion in which it will give away free Hondas if Michigan shuts out Ohio State in the 110th edition of "the game" Saturday.
The dealerships is advertising that anyone who buys a vehicle from the deanship between now and Saturday will get the car for free if the Wolverines hold Ohio State scoreless.
The Wolverines are double-digit underdogs and haven't shutout the Buckeyes since 1993.
