07:39 AM ET 02.14 | In the end, John Beilein and Michigan had the last laugh, but Ohio State landed Tuesday's first salvo with a pregame video to rev up the hometown crowd in Columbus. [One clip] featured Ohio's 65-60 upset of Michigan in the second round of the 2012 NCAA tournament. That's the Ohio Bobcats, not the Ohio State Buckeyes. Another segment highlighted Chris Webber's infamous timeout call in the waning moments of the 1993 national championship game. Asked about the pregame video during his weekly radio show on Wednesday, Beilein said he was unaware of it until after the game. "I hope Michigan never does that," Beilein said. "I don't want to ever do things like that." The video wrapped up with an unflattering picture of a Michigan fan, followed by the words, "Pure Michigan," a nod to the state's tourism slogan.

Wished I was there to enjoy the vid. To see the looks of forlorn dejection on the faces of Meatchicken fans after taking it to them once again is nothing but pure schadenfreude my friends, pure schadenfreude.

You can just chisel it on my headstone right now "Phfuck Michigan"

I'd rather win the game than the pregame video every time. Scoreboard.

As an OSU alum I can see how a bit of what we put on the pre-game videos can be a bit offensive to the other teams... That said, I like it and it is usually in good fun. To be honest, last year vs Indiana they had Bobby Knight come on and proclaim that there is nothing in the country like OSU basketball... that seems like more of a slap in the face than this.

First, it's very simple. The mentality of Ohio Hate fans are like the parents of terrorists. They hate their enemy more than they love their own. It's why they go to such great lengths to focus on Michigan during their OWN HOME GAMES!

Second, Michigan lives RENT FREE in the heads of Ohio Hate fans. Michigan occupies a place in their head that Ohio Hate fans can't shake and leads them to become crazy with hate for Michigan.

Three. How sweet it is that Ohio Hate pulls such bull only to get embarrassed at home with a Michigan comeback.

Four. This is the mindset of a program that is STILL envious of Michigan. OSU bball and football has been so dominant for such a long time that they can't even enjoy their success because they are obsessed with the prestige of Michigan even with the fact that OSU has owned Michigan in football and bball for such a long time.

That should tell you ALL you need to know just how psycho and mentally ill the OSU fan base is.

Didn't the buckeyes actually lose this game?

February 14, 2014  09:48 AM ET

forgot to add that OSU has to cheat to win. At least in Football. Proven fact. OSU HAS TO CHEAT to win.
Cheaters and Haters and Mentally Ill is not a good combo. But that is what defines Ohio Hate.

"I hope Michigan never does that" - JB

This right after he calls tOSU "Ohio" during pre-game......and after the athletic department pays to fly a "go blue" banner at an MSU game.....and after tsun's band spells "OHNO".....etc, etc, etc.

Stay classy tsun.

And tsun has to count wins against AA high school to be the "winningest" program.
