COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Bo Schembechler kicked off the biggest week of the biggest game in the history of the biggest rivalry in college football with a news conference Monday. If time had doused the fire in Schembechler, who had not stalked the Michigan sideline since 1989, it didn't show. He touched on a variety of subjects, most of which revolved around his beloved Wolverines, ranked No. 2 in the country, who were preparing for today's colossal showdown with No. 1 Ohio State at Ohio Stadium.

OXFORD, Ohio - With a blinding sun and a mostly empty Yager Stadium at his back, Ravens coach John Harbaugh peered into a crowd that contained so many people he wanted to thank. To his right were his parents, wife and daughter, along with other members of his extended family. To his left were about 30 of his former teammates at Miami University (Ohio). Straight ahead were a couple of rows of football fans, many either wearing Miami red or Ravens purple. It was exactly how Harbaugh wanted to commemorate a memorable and rewarding weekend.

NBC Sports shared some of the interview that Tony Dungy did with Ravens coach John Harbaugh. It will air tonight during NBC's prime-time coverage. NOTE [from NBC]: John Harbaugh's brother is San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh. Their father, Jack, was a longtime college football coach, including as an assistant at Michigan. DUNGY: If I were to describe you and your brother Jim, two words would be intense and competitive. Is that from growing up with a dad as a coach or is that from growing up together?

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- In this part of the country, when college football fans speak of "The Game," there is no need to clarify that they're talking about the annual football matchup between Ohio State and Michigan. But none of the teams' 102 prior meetings have held as much importance as their game today, with Ohio State ranked No. 1 and Michigan No. 2 for the first time in series history. Both have 11-0 records and the winner is assured a spot in January's Bowl Championship Series national title game.

The Detroit Tigers recently fired 72-year-old Charles F. "Rip" Collins, a former batboy who for years has presided over the visiting team's clubhouse as host and custodian. This has provoked a debate there between Tiger traditionalists and the club's new management almost as bitter as the one last year, when veteran (and ex-Oriole broadcaster) Ernie Harwell was fired as the team's radio announcer.A colleague who pays close attention to Detroit baseball called this to our attention, "not because you should take sides, but because you might be interested in something Rip Collins said in his valedictory."

The first eight pages of this year's University of Michigan football media guide might tell you something about the task facing Gary Moeller. They are devoted strictly to Bo Schembechler. To the program he led back to national prominence during his 21 seasons in Ann Arbor. To the place he found among coaching legends. And to the spotlight he left behind."I don't think the pressure will ever not be there," said Moeller.It has been there since the day last December when Schembechler, forced to leave coaching on the advice of his doctors, announced his retirement and promoted Moeller from offensive coordinator to head coach of the Wolverines.

Harwell still speaking volumesErnie Harwell must have the biggest hands in baseball. On Monday night in Washington, he held 600 people in his palm.Those folks, seemingly every one a Detroit Tigers fan -- at least for the night -- were attending Part 3 of the Smithsonian Institution's "Voices of the Game" series.Early in the program, a call came in from NBC's Bob Costas. He recalled sitting in the family car as a child on Long Island, N.Y., tuning the car radio to Detroit's WJR to listen to Harwell.

Most first-round draft choices come into the NFL followed by a stack of favorable press clippings. When Jim Harbaugh joined the Chicago Bears out of the University of Michigan five years ago, he was shadowed only by doubts.In Harbaugh's case, he wasn't labeled can't-miss. It was more like can't throw. Just another ex-Wolverines quarterback whose glorious past in Ann Arbor would not translate into a bright future in the pros.Call it guilt by alumni association."When one person said it, then everybody said it," Harbaugh recalled last week.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Bill Frieder, as kinetic as his campus is laid back, hustles down this corridor in a wing off Arizona State Sun Devil Stadium, and then stops abruptly at his locked office door. A handwritten note is stuck to it, and as he reaches to remove it, he reads aloud that Lattie Coor, the president here at Arizona State University, indeed will drop by a reception for basketball recruits an hour from now."Good," Frieder mutters as he unlocks his door, and then he wads up the sheet of paper, grabs a can of soda and plops into a chair behind his oversized desk.
