till The Game.
BC guys evaluate Bates's tenure positively.
BEAT THE BUCKS! BEAT THE BUCKS! BEAT THE BUCKS!
I would cry tears of joy if we beat buckeye lol
I too would start to tear up, +1
I'm trying to imagine what it would feel like if we won... the best I can come up with falls painfully short.
The season hasn't even started yet, so, uh...let's just keep counting down to that. I'm sure that's what the team is worried about.
Then again, none of those kids or RichRod or me appreciate or understand the rivalry.
Way to go Captain buzzkill
Is hilarious. Sweet joke. Really.
Because Minne$ota sucks!
Now that's a joke.
Pay him for the pizza
Coaches Jim Tressel and Lloyd Carr are walking down the beach talking about the new rivalry starting with Rich Rodriguez taking over as the UM head coach. As they are walking, Lloyd trips over something in the sand. Upon closer inspection it turns out to be a genie's lamp. "Who disturbs me?" asked the genie. Jim and Lloyd both say they did it. "You will each get one wish," said the genie. Tressel, always the douchebag, demands to go first. "I want an impenetrable wall built around the entire state of Ohio so that no Ohioans can ever get out. I want it as far down into the ground as it is high, and I want it to be completely sealed in so that we can finally have our peace!" The genie grants the wish to Jim and he is instantly whisked away to his new paradise. The genie now tells Lloys he'll grant him one wish. Lloyd says, "Fill it up with water."
Is this a tacky, cliched rivalry joke competition? Awesome! I can't wait for someone to bust out the burned-down library/coloring book one!
You got to love it, and dont forget the "why is ice no longer available during Ohio State Football games? Because the senior who knew the recipe just graduated" lol
Rich Rodriguez and Jim Tressel get in a car accident. Jim Tressel gets to heaven and he gets a nice scarlet and gray log cabin. But he notices a huge party going on in the house down the street. It's a huge maize and blue colored 3 story mansion with tons of Michigan decorations. Tressel asks St. Peter, why did Rich Rod get that huge mansion and I only got this small cabin? St. Peter says, Rich Rod survived the crash, that's gods house!
the rivalry he would have a countdown clock.
That is what coaches who understand rivalries do.
I had just come back to this thread to post an almost identical comment. Dammit. Too late.
True, this just proves that he is not on the same level of coachitude as Saintonio or Dick Tressel.
Out of curiosity, did Lloyd have a countdown clock?
If we beat Ohio State that would be simply amazing and would take away most of my frustration with the last 5 years we have played them.
it is now, 99 days untiil THE GAME
Really underscores how short the college football season is. You wait eight months (or 9+ months, this year) for the season to start and then it's over so fast.
I have a good feeling that we might just pull off a win this year against tosu. New and improved team, Newly renovated stadium and of course 112,000 rabid screaming fans. I predict a win. Screw the experts!
EDIT: SCREW "THE" NOT "THAT" EXPERTS! HAHA!
DOUBLE YOUR FUN IT'S THE STATEMENT OF A GREAT MINT WITH DOUBLE MINT GUM
I just want to be clear... the people making the horribly stupid rivalry jokes do realize how unfunny they are right? Like the "LOL BUCKEYE DELIVERS PIZZA" shit is generally discouraged around here.
As is double posting.
Proved by my -10 mgopoint deduction. I will learn these rules and follow them
...does that silly "Number of Days Since Michigan Last Beat OSU in Football" counter that the Columbus Dispatch maintains on their webpage just go back to zero? Start counting negative days? Or does it just come down completely because it was a completely bush league idea in the first place?
They will put their hands over their ears and go "LALALALA! I can't hear you! We're not back to losing to Michigan! Nope!"
