There is a lot of youth on that roster, showing the Tigers are interested in protecting a lot of their youngsters from the Rule V draft.

I know a lot of you who read this in the Michigan area are probably not even thinking Tigers right now, because of the big game coming up today. The rivalry I grew up with (Florida-Florida St) holds the same passion and intensity, and I know that Michigan-OSU is an incredible game to be a part of. As an outsider looking in at Big 10 football, I predict a Buckeyes win, but want to give an early congrats out to the team that comes out victorious.
