Google Map War: OSU vs. Michigan

It's Michigan Week, seven days of sturm und drang. Out of curiosity, I google mapped the rivals' stadia. Click on the links: Ohio Stadium vs. Michigan Stadium.

What do we learn? Based on the condition of the field, Ohio State is worn out, perhaps even unprepared for the next game. It is, however, the photo of a grass field, not the current artificial turf. Michigan's field is painted, but the map is centered not on the stadium, but a tiny runt of building a football field away from the Big House.

This reveals many things (mostly unrelated to the game this Saturday), but does it hold predictive value for the game. Why not? Ohio State 23, Michigan 14.
