Can you imagine the Wolverine State as the Buckeye State? Strange, but true: global warming is pushing the growing range for the buckeye and other trees north, and, left unchecked, will make the buckeye more common in our state and other Upper Midwest states. We've got the ingenuity and the technology in place to tackle global warming. Join other Michiganders in saying "no" to out-of-control global warming, and "yes" to stopping the buckeye for Michigan!


Stop the Buckeye is a coalition of Michigan organizations working to bring global warming to state and national attention. They are using the Michigan-Ohio State rivalry to draw attention to the fact that the Buckeye is moving north into Michigan, and the Wolverine is disappearing from the state. Why? Because of global warming!

Help Save the Wolverine State by signing an online petition
I suppose this is helping the Buckeye state out as well, so it is win-win no matter who you are allied with.

I'd encourage you to read up at stopthebuckeye.org

Shouldn't you be rooting for Illini?

Anyways, I thought it was an interesting way of bringing global warming to (at the very least) state attention. Any thoughts besides the Buckeyes?

Fair enough, but I thought this was a cool play on the rivalry.

Just more proof that the Buckeyes own Michigan. It's been 6 years since the Buckeyes were stopped by someone in the State of Michigan.

Anything to offer about the actual program? laugh.gif

An aside:
I will be the first to admit that Michigan football wasn't up to par this year, but it's a great rivalry all the same.
