Former Ohio State Heisman Trophy-winning running back Eddie George is the Grand Marshal at tomorrow's Big 10K race, so for at least one day, he's forced to be nice to fans of other league schools. But that doesn't mean he's going to wear any apparel related to his program's biggest rival. Thursday, a Michigan supporter named Gerald Blanc posted a photo of himself and George to Instagram. In the caption, he noted how he attempted to put a Wolverines hat on George's head, but the former tailback "knocked it out" of his hand. Priceless.

There's nothing quite like college football rivalries. Ohio State vs. Michigan is one of the best.
