I did not make this headline up
Post any updates here...or don't, I'm taking back our board!
Celebration! Riot gear, police, tear gas, fires. Tearing down goal posts...
Not sure if any couches burning, though.
Hence we must acknowledge that Michigan's true, transitive ranking, adjusted for endpoint strength of schedule, leaves no room to doubt we were the #3 team of 2014.
I can't wait to see what Harbaugh can do with that kind of a foundation.
Only four teams played against the championship squad (the Jones-led Bucks): Wisconsin (ranked #11 at the time), Oregon (#2), Alabama (#1), and Michigan (#Harbaugh).
The scores were:
As ALA and ORE were ranked #1 and #2, and as our performance against the eventual #1 fell between the respective performances of those two teams, we are clearly #3. Go us.
Also, the OOHI cheerleaders misspelled Ohio at the game.
There. I feel better now. Please do not dispute my pillowy cocoon of delicate logic.
Cardale Jones on entering the NFL Draft: “It’s definitely a ‘who knows’ right now. It’s up in the air right now.”
That sure sounds like a guy with one foot out the door. He would be smart to leave. His stock will never be this high again. If he stays at OSU he will have Barrett behind him and if he struggles he could end up on the bench.
The NCAA, state officials, and Pennsylvania State University are in talks to reconsider the historic punishment imposed on the school stemming from the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal, a step that could include restoring 111 victories stripped from the late football coach Joe Paterno's record, according to people familiar with the discussions.
Also under consideration is a proposal to have the state and the university use the $60 million fine levied by the NCAA, the major organizing body for college sports, for child protection, said the sources.
Top 5 reasons Ohio State fans suck:
#5. Outside of Ohio, they are the only people who do not realize that there is absolutely NOTHING else in Ohio to cheer about.
#4. They are ALWAYS Ohio State fans; at work, weddings, baby showers, funerals, their annoying fanaticism is never turned off.
#3. They sincerely do not know just how annoying they are.
#2. After tonight, they will have a renewed sense of annoyance.
#1. And finally, the number one reason Ohio State fans suck... win OR lose, they have NO CLASS.
I live in Ohio; therefore, this has been the longest, worst football year ever, and tonight that year has just been extended. Here's to Jim Harbaugh turning this thing into a rivalry again and kicking their asses; maybe not next year, or, well, I don't know when, but I hope it happens soon!
EDIT: consider this a rider on the previous negbang thread...
