Charles Woodson Guarantees Win Against Ohio State On An Odd Date

That Team Up North takes classes at a very respectable institution with high standards academically. And of course, the Maize and Blue are just as proud on the football field — being the all-time winningest program and all.

So it’s no wonder that former Heisman Trophy winner, and All-Pro defensive back Charles Woodson was tapped to give the commencement speech to this year’s crop of Michigan graduates.

He seemed to handle himself well, discussing the future of those graduating and all, but he couldn’t help himself, and had to dive into the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry that — to be kind — has been one-sided for almost two decades now.

Woodson, in the middle of the speech made a big guarantee about the next installment of The Game.

“But I’m telling you here today, 212 days from now, your Michigan Wolverines team will go down to Columbus, march into that stadium and we will beat you know who to bring back that familiar feeling of victory back to The University of Michigan again,” said Woodson.

It does recall a certain speech a sweater-vest wearing new head coach made when he was introduced at halftime of an OSU basketball game in 2001.

“You’ll be proud of our young people, in the classroom, in the community, and most especially in 310 days in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on the football field,” said Jim Tressel at the time.

We know how that played out with Ohio State sealing the deal in Ann Arbor, and maybe Woodson was trying to do the same thing and get this program jump started again.

There’s only one problem. Tressel was good with his math, but if you count the days from today forward to 212 days, well … there’s a problem.

I know the traditional Saturday games have been moved around recently, but I would say there’s about a .00001 chance The Game gets moved to a Monday unless an act of God forces tradition to frown on reality.

Here’s a lesson for Michigan and Charles Woodson; if you’re going to make a prediction from an esteemed institution in front of a graduating class of some bright, young minds, can you please at least get your math correct.

Queue up the bulletin board material anyway because Urban Meyer and company will take on khakis and mud any day of the week.
