Michigan-Ohio State was just another football game, for the most part, until Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler helped transform it into the over-the-top grudge match called “The Game.” Now, more than 40 years later, two coaches steeped in the rivalry – each more than willing to toss a little disrespect toward the other side – will be prowling the sidelines in the 109th meeting today ( 9 a.m., ABC). Just like Hayes and Schembechler, Michigan’s Brady Hoke and Ohio State’s Urban Meyer are Ohio natives who don’t do a very good job of hiding the fact that they can barely abide their chief rival.
