The Michigan-Ohio St. video you've been waiting for...if you're an Ohio St. fan.

If you've been waiting for a Michigan-Ohio State hype video, your wait is over. Of course, if you're a Wolverine fan you'll be disappointed to learn that it was produced by Ohio State. Sorry to be the one to have to tell that one to you.

The Fallout: Will Muschamp, James Franklin, The Iron Bowl, and more.

Welcome to the Fallout - Week 14 Wednesday edition.

Yes, there was a game last night. Ohio defeated Miami (Oh.) in overtime 24-21. Which is enough reason to do a "Fallout" this soon in Week 14. Another reason is that since there aren't any games tonight, calling it "Play the Game Tonight" wouldn't make sense.

SEC Network to air Paul Finebaum-hosted call-in show during Iron Bowl.

From the "this won't end well" department comes word that SEC Network gadfly Paul Finebaum will host a live call-in show during the Auburn-Alabama Iron Bowl showdown. The "Finebaum Film Room: Iron Bowl Live" will air on the SEC Network while the Iron Bowl airs on ESPN.

It's an interesting experiment on ESPN and the SEC Network's part having fans call in and either gloat for their particular team's success or to call for either Nick Saban or Gus Malzan's head - and possibly both at the same time.

There's no word yet if any other SEC Network or ESPN analysts or personalities join Fineabaum on the air this Saturday. Don't be surprised if Danny Kannel makes an appearance to throw fuel into the fire, though.
