    The Game is back! Three cheers for Michigan 

    Give Michigan the credit. SBC Communications cannot buy The Game. The Ohio State-Michigan football game will not be called The SBC Michigan-Ohio State Classic after all. It would be nice to report that good sense prevailed in Columbus upon consulting instant replay the call to sell the name of The Game to SBC was reversed. It wasn't. The impetus for canceling the $1 million deal came from Ann Arbor. According to Detroit Free Press columnist Michael Rosenberg, UM President Mary Sue Coleman killed the deal. Mary Sue, you're a good 'ol girl. Ohioblog just wishes the folks in Columbus had your sensibilities. They don't. The decision was forced upon OSU athletic director Andy Geiger. Geiger's UM counterpart, Bill Martin, ``You say, `How does this happen?' it happened because Bill Martin screwed up. I did not focus on the naming aspect of this thing soon enough. There is nobody to blame in this situation but me.'' How refreshing. But Ohioblog will also continue to blame Geiger.
