There is still more than enough time for MSU to Sparty away this game.
Big 10 Championship Game Open Thread
So, sometimes it's pretty hard to get two or three yards with the game on the line, isn't it, Buckeyes?
It looked to me like Braxton was going to make it, but Little Brother says no!
Pretty sure this is the longest non-Michigan thread in site history, non-Usama bin Laden division.
I don't believe in a deity, but if there is one, please let MSU win this game.
I just couldn't help myself from checking out 11 warriors... (I didn't troll them, though!)
How was it? Any survivors?
Whatever. Fuck this.
Not that I think it'll happen, but there's PLENTY of time for another Sparty Noooooo moment.
Anyone else think Big Al dialed up that 4th down run call buy ohio?
Sounds like another team that couldn't get into the end zone after a play call made post time out was sniffed out by the defense.
That said, fuck both States.
FSU is in... Please don't let Ohio get in now, Sparty!
move those chains and keep that damn clock moving...fuck Ohio
Huge 3rd down
GREAT spot...fuck Ohio
You sure about that spot?
Cook had been on fire. Respect.
That was a pretty generous spot.
look sad on the sideline.
Nice throw and catch! Nice spot!
Damn... Reviewing it :(
Urban. But I laugh every time during the last 2 Michigan-Ohio games and now this game where he looks so nervous he might puke all over his ugly shirt.
Huge third down conversion. Clock keeps ticking and MSU on the edge of FG range.
Edit: Under review. It should stand.
slits my wrists for saying that....
Both of them!
That was a really generous spot, but he still got the 1st. Right at the line.
I've never seen a spot overturned, but it's possible here.
first down either way...fuck Ohio
clearly contact made over the yard marker which was the first down.
But not a full yard past the marker. It was right on the 35 yard line, which was a 1st down.
I love all this calling for Sparty No's when aside from ND game there has been none this year. This is not John L Smith or Bobby Williams coaching staff who implode mentally constantly. Thinking this is 2003 MSU is silly. Sure they can lose but unlikely self implosion and if so it will be totally out of character for what the team has done this year.
very generous. You'd think MSU was playing for the NCG with the PI calls on OSU and these type of placements.... so much for conspiracies.
watching this?????? Fuuuuuuuuucccccckkkk I'm gonna need to shower after viewing this.
Keep burning clock!
But horrible spot.
The 5 year picture is favorable for Michigan. This year sucked hard.
Had to be something for OSU fans to bitch about after the game. There it is!
stupid ass sparty...stay in bounds
Langford looks like an NFL back. What a beast.
They've both really matured over the year.
OSU in big trouble now.
YES YES YES YES YES FUCK YOU URBAN
This is what we've been reduced to.
And yet I strongly agree.
Fickel is so getting fired.
Yes!!!!!! Fuck ohio!
10 point lead
AAHHHHHHHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHA fuck Ohio
Let's go Cardinal!!!!!!
is burning right now...
Fuck you, Buckeyes, fuck you.
but whatever it takes to fuck O$U.
Sad Braxton Miller!
Good job Lil Bro. You behave yourself out in Cali.
That'll do it.
Announcer showing a little emotion there.
Priceless looks all around on Buckeye faces.
I feel giddy watching Ohio lose. I've embraced it. Sorry Buckeyes. Little Brother got you. For Little Brother, know that we hate Ohio more. I know that really bugs you.
F u Urban.... Lol!
So much for "Sparty No" - this team is well coached peeps, and mentally strong. Your 2003 MSU is not coming back this year or in 3 years. Dantonio has turned culture on its head. Yes some years they will be sucky but sucky means 7-6 not 3-8 anymore.
...I just realized something
You guys realize that the first game Meyer loses...is to MSU?
That makes me sick. Dantonio and MSU will always have that nugget.
We're down to schadenfreude and hoping others spoil our rivals' seasons.
On the plus side we daggered up Northwestern real well before they fell apart, I suppose. And held serve against ND.
I don't understand why you are all happy. Now we get to hear about MSU winning the big ten all year long. This has been the worst year of football in a long time. For me at least.
Better than hearing how Urban is a god and osu's 25 game win streak
About MSU than fucking urbz and his winning streak
Agreed. This is bad for Michigan.
Just ask Gus Johnson.
Seriously? a sparty rose bowl once every 30 years is something i would much rather deal with than Urban Meyer taking the fuckeyes to a national title game and continuing that streak
Could be MSU winning the Big Ten, or OSU winning the Big Ten and possibly a national championship. I'll take the latter (even though both options suck).
I should also note that I grew up in Ohio and many of my friends are OSU fans and grads.
I'd much rather see OSU's 24 undefeated streak end then hear MSU's blathering. I can deal with MSU since they have so little success historically.
to hear about OSU in the title game? Meyer still undefeated?
Lesser of two evils, on the order of Hitler vs Stalin
Smack those fuckers in the mouth and fuck you urbz
Urban looks stressed...lololololol
awwww poor Urbie...yeah fuck him
Fuck urban, fuck ohio, fuck the buckeyes...
Michigan state too, despite this nice surprise.
MSU knocks OSU out of the national championship game and gets called Little Brother by the announcer.
Best possible outcome given the meteor mailed it in.
Go Little Brother!!!
FSU is just going to blow out Auburn anyway.
I hope so.
has showed us the way boys. Give it a little more time, we'll get there.
Sparty should be arguing they should go to the NCG
Incredible how close they are to being undefeated. They've had a dominant season.
Many a couch will be burned in East Lansing.
It's gonna be a long night for some FDs...
Tell me Luke Fickell's job is safe. I would hate to see that man leave.
No reason, with that talent, that Ohio St shouldn't have an amazing defense
Fickell isn't responsible for his players gutlessness in the 4th quarter or their softness last week against Michigan.
You punch the bully in the mouth they back down. Michigan did it last week and Sparty has done it this week.
I just don't think he's a very good DC in general. The combination of MSU winning the B1G and Ohio possibly getting a better DC in the offseason does not make me a happy camper.
Not his fault. Players are too young.
How awesome would we all feel if Ohio scores 14 points in 2 minutes? Mmmm, I think I need to clean my underdrawers.
Dantonio and Meyer already dislike each other and this starts a good rivalry with both in the same division. Maybe Dantonio will throw a OSU clock up in the MSU locker room so less focus on hating us with all their power.
I'm so torn. I love seeing the Buckeyes sad; however, I despise seeing MSU joy.
Enjoy the national cham.....
Now that I'm experiencing this first hand - the beatdown of Ohio State - I think this is the best case scenario.
How did you not see that clearly already?
I ask that sincerely.
That f'n band playing the fight song every time Urban breathes. Hang on Sloopy. Fuck Ohio. Always.
But welcome to the dark side.
Here's the problem: this might force Meyer to get serious about shoring up the defense.
Urbz looks ready to spend time with the family again
Ohio is holding so badly right now - come on, refs.
Why is the clock running there? He went out of bounds? NO ONE NOTICED THAT?
all the true contenders please step forward....not so fast Brutus....
People are crazy. This is huge for MSU. No, this is not as bad as it would be had Ohio State won the MNC, of course, but this really isn't good for Michigan.
Why? We having nothing to gain or lose here...
Yeah, just in-state recruiting clout. That didn't hurt Rich Rod much, now that you mention it...
But Michigan has the history, Bo, traditions, helmets, history, Bo, and victors. How can State compete with that?
Anyways, UM can change that by winning. This is all on Michigan. They control what people think of them. Depending on others losing to sustain your programs prestige is the mentality of a loser.
Just win, baby.
Anyone else notice how shitty the midfield logo looks due to the colts helmet underneath still?
all the true contenders please step forward....not so fast Brutus....
This is a strange we world.
OSU tears taste so good.......
How come against us all passes by OSU were caught.?
Well because that's not true.
I'm not usually like this but we should've beat ohio.
We should've beat everyone on our schedule except MSU.
We should be sitting celebrating knowing that we're going to the BCS (we couldn't if OSU was in the NC game and MSU was in the Rose)
Someone with DVR confirm that after BM went out of bounds; they started the clock and like 20 seconds ticked off.... WTF?! Hahahaha Ohio.
He was out with 2:01 clocked stopped briefly and then started again. Didn't even stop long enough for the first down.
I just want to see Dantonio's face if they score. He'll shit a brick!
I think we saw the last game Fickel is on the sideline of an osu game :(
Just said the same thing to a friend of mine.
Dennard for Heisman!! (again)
Well at least OSU can enjoy their national championship from last year HAHAHAHAHAHA
Stanford v. MSU will be a great game to watch.
i literally can't wait to watch Sparty take a knee to see the look on Urban's face LOL....
smiling...holy shit the world may end!
Please show crying O$U fans
Nice play! Fuck you, Urban
I wonder who I'll be pulling for
Urban looks like he's gonna cry!!!
See you can't be proud of little brother sometimes...even when he's annoying and kicks your ass, he still can sometimes do some good.
Meyer looks like he is going to cry!!!
Congrats Sparty. They won the right way - awesome D, competent O - players improving at every position. And some gutsy coaching calls this game and all year. They wont be going away anytime soon - but a small step back next year. Hopefully UM can rise up and this motivates them further. Going to be a boost for MSU recruiting too.
Well done, lil bro.
MSU on the verge of winning the B1G.
Ohio ending its streak, losing the B1G championship, and its shot at the NC.
I'm ok with this. :)
Grr...health problems flaring up!
Sparty just saved OSU the embarrassment of being stomped by FSU.
I am very envious of States D. Actually gets stops at the end of games.
just like 2006!
So who goes in beside FSU?
...is it even a question?
They beat Mizzou and Bama and OSU lost.
Auburn clearly deserves it.
If FSU had blown it, I think Sparty had an argument over an Auburn-Alabama do-over. Not as the better team than Alabama, but as the team that hadn't blown its chance against Auburn.
...but here comes the SEC streak talk.
I'm now a HUGE FSU fan.
but the world was over if Urban got to be a MNC winning coach there.
Has anyone gone over there this evening to see the reaction?
Yeah, I can live with this. Love seeing the sick look on Meyer's face.
So where does this put us for a bowl?
I wonder whole gets tears of Unfathomable Sadness this week ?
Not sure why I'm glad about Michigan State being B1G CHAMPS but F it. I hate Ohio.
I choose to see the glass half full.
Hatred for Ohio> Hatred for Little Brother.
Urban went 24-1 across 2 years and not a ring to show for it.
Well, he did make his own ring. Does that count?
Right after Sparty kicked off it cuts to huddle in sideline and what the hell was going on with the assistant playing patty cake and then spitting on the dudes glove for him?
they're not even using their last timeout...why? because they don't want no more!! Fuck O-H-I-O
I have to give credit where credit is due. Dantonio and his staff are an amazing set if coaches. They can really coach up a group of players. They are beginning to show discipline as well. They will be scary the next couple years. We need to get better fast. First, is getting rid of Hoke. Hopefully when Mary Sue retires, we get a new AD that doesn't hire his buddy to be coach and pay him 4.5 million per.
upon Coleman's retirement and this game is a perfect example of why you stick with Hoke. Google Mark Dantonio's career at MSU.
Do the same with hoke.. What in his record demands his pay check. Making twice what dantonio makes.
How do you know? I do know there are a lot of dean position in the school that are open due to retiring/ leaving. They are being filled with interim positions. Mary Sue brought her own team in, and I know this because my wife reported to one if them. She retired when Mary Sue announced her retirement. If the next president is at all concerned with athletics, they could bring their person in. It is not unheard of. I can only hope though.
Bucky is soooooooooooooo sad.
Love the way Langford powered through tackles on that TD run. Want to see that nastiness from Green and Smith next year.
and you know Urban's going to be hanging on to him for dear life.
BURN THE COUCH
Lol burn the couch sign!
Fuck ohio ( clap clap clap clap clap)
Blows my mind how far msu has come since the beginning of the season..especially their offense
I think a successful MSU team will be easier for us to out-recruit than a successful Ohio team.
although it will be quieter if Stanford can put one on them.
But an MNC Champ Urban at O$U is the ultimate nightmare.
Trollin', trollin' down the river.
"Burn the Couch"
Little Brother, you are making me happier.
Best news of night - I think OSU might get matched up with an angry Bama in a BCS game?
Why not? Huge money maker. I was wondering who would get them.
Urban Meyer has the same number of B1G titles as Hoke does, FWIW.
That's just dumb; one of those guys has lost one B1G game in two years, and the other lost 5 this year
Also, one of them walked into a fully loaded team and the other is executing a major rebuild
Let the couch burning begin !!!
Urban Meyer to Texas
That's funny shit ! You sir made me laugh . :-)
after commentating for a year
And then Dantonio to OSU? No thanks.
Dantonio helped a man up that got knocked over. What a classy guy
Huge night for Sparty.
I don't get why Urban didn't put Kenny in to pass, or allow Hyde to run the 4th and 1.
How sweet would this be if we would've just converted last week? Two losses in a row to end their regular season, bring their cronies back to reality, and observe them meltdown in much the same way they've joyously watched us meltdown over the last two months.
until Michigan can dance with Roses in their teeth like they did so many times when I was growing up. I can nly hope that day is SOON. Go Blue!
can someone please make an image of that look on meyer's face when they shook hands...OMG lol
State still played good on defense IMO. Not their best, but Ohio only scored 24. They dominated the game in the bookend quarters. Much better than most teams did/would do against Ohio
Someone get Urban a coed, quick
to spend his summer eating people.
That guy is going to be terrifying.
Stanford better come to play in the Rose Bowl. Go Cardnial!
Hoo boy. So much for that unbeaten streak OSU. Welcome to earth.
OSU needs the heimlich ............choke
Nope, Sparty straight up beat them. Ohio had some moments on incredible individual efforts, and got it going a little coming out of the half, but overall they were dominated on offense more than the score showed.
Sparty did enough on offense to get the win,
Holy shit, that coaches' handshake. *cringe*
D'Antonio smiling and Urban looking like he was about to puke. I have mixed feelings . . . .
God I hope OSU plays Alabama in their bowl game.
Time to barf
Ooh, they just showed Fickel and Bosa in a sweet embrace, like they were getting ready to kiss. I guess whatever consoles em.
Get that dub (w) now the sentence or two before that...??
Michigan is so far behind it is sickening.
Things change rapidly in college football.
They are hitters.....sooooooo much more physical than Brady Hoke's Michigan. And State's team speed is better than Michigan.
MSU has a more developed program than Michigan does right now.
You keep saying this, but the team gets worse every year!! Even rr teams got better every year.
in year three. UM's program cratered under RR. I don't think you appreciate how bad the state of the program was when Hoke took over. The defense in particular was in shambles. The special teams weren't so special. This isn't an OSU situation where a guy walks in with the perfect guy for his offense. It was a near total rebuild.
Now it hasn't gone perfectly. Borges and Funk have done a substandard job. That needs to change if UM is going to make the expected jump in performance.
I have been shaking my head this whole game to think about how long it might be before we even get to the B1G Championship game. :(
Yeah, it's a tough time to be a Michigan fan watching your two main rivals slug it out in a classic Big Ten championship. I don't think we're THAT far behind, but we definitely have something to prove next season if we want to be in the conversation with OSU and MSU. They've set the bar.
We need a huge influx of toughness next year.
Porky pig plays for state...
damn you, Fox. I ask for so little.
Seriously - is there a good chance for Bama v OSU? I have not been following the BCS bowl possibilities closely. Just about the only positive of the year would be that ending... lol.
Very likely happening...
MSU intelligence in those interviews. Good players, not so good speakers.
Glad to see Ohio in tears
Hopefully the Sparty Rose Bowl will be like the 17 year secadas
MSU Rose Bowls.. 1974, 1988, 2014...
1954, 1956 and 1966
They voted for themselves to go in 1974 but Ohio went
I wish it would be Hoke, but Dantonio is going to give Urban heart problems.
It would be a Saban acolyte.
he will have four new offensive lineman and no Carlos Hyde. I think he stays, but should probably go.
I truly think the cash offers he's getting in Ohio could keep him in "school."
I'm out don't want to see Sparty collecting trophies
you know he shit a brick over this.
LOL @ Delaney getting boo'd when he takes the mic and then getting boo'd louder when he tried to get cheers for Ohio State
Rich, white guy presentation
Jim Delaney might want to delegate the final announcement at the end... also, maize and blue confetti?
Jim Delaney might want to delegate the final announcement at the end... also, maize and blue confetti?
Delany said lets give it up for osu and the great game lol. What a looser
one of the few Buckeyes I respect.
Where will I be able to find the last minutes of play? I'm watching this with a OSU fans and I wasn't able to see urbie fall from grace. I bathe in his tears
I'm sure BTN will torture us with this for a while. I am going to have to stay off Facebook and not watch BTN or ESPN til this blows over.
LOL Archie Griffin is giving the trophy to Connor Cook...lmao you know Delaney planned it like the fuckeyes were going to win
Fuck OSU and MSU
You tell em son.
I didn't know Gary Busey was the head of the Rose Bowl.
"What is emotional confusion, you ask? It's like running naked through a cornfield, backwards at midnight." - Gary Busey
How did Archie like giving that award out after watching ohio fall?
Charles Rogers just lit up a doob
And will asleep at Chili's in an hour.
That was very cult-like.
Great speech Conor Cook, we can tell you are from Ohio..
as much as this sucks, I don't know how anyone didn't realize that this was the anvil we had to avoid.
...just as annoying.
Let this sink in for a minute:
Al Borges and Jim Bollman offenses combined to drop 75 pts on Ohio the last 2 weeks.
MSU, Auburn and Baylor all win. Congrats to all of them.
Again, it doesn't mean you can't win...doesn't mean you're not good.
MSU and Coach Dantonio.
Well deserved and hard earned.
He was crying
I do hate how it's Auburn who gets to waltz to the championship game with one loss, but no mention of the Big Ten champions. The Big Ten really needs to get its shit together. MSU would have just as good of a case (not that I would want it) if not for national perception.
Auburn beat 2 top 5 teams in 2 weeks...MSU is a good football team but I Auburn's case is much stronger.
was two lucky plays from not even being in a position to win the SEC Championship
Georgia was luck.... Bama was not
Exactly correct about Alabama. Anyone who heard the post game interview with the guy who returned that knows it. Absurdly brilliant coaching move that almost wasn't. Good coaching is never luck.
1 second being put (correctly) on the clock, that play never happens.
Regardless of whether its a good play, or planned, whatever. You still have to be damn lucky to pull that off.
Carlos Hyde finished the game with 18 carries for 118 yards. In the second half he had 81 yards on 10 carries. Meyer's got some 'splaining to do as to why he didn't see the ball on those crucial 3rd and 4th downs at the MSU 40.
yea i felt the playcalling was very borges like and that they made some obvious and predictable play calling on their last 2 drives when they could of easily scored.. what a joke
Watching all these makes me wonder if will ever get there again??
Plus why is msu always playing the victim game? They talk about how they had to prove it, play with a chip on their shoulder blah blah..Your the winners quit fuckin acting like your a victim
It helps a team remained focus and intense. I hope UM's plays with a chip on their shoulder next year. 7-5 should do that to a team.
fuckin Meyer didn't once say that MSU played great in the win...fuck him and fuck Ohio
He said they played a great team
First good team Ohio State plays in 2 years and Ohio State loses by double digits. Awesome.
Did anyone else see Urban's post game press conference? That had to be the most awkward thing I've ever seen. Reading prepared remarks and barely looking up the entire time? For real?
For those of us in Columbus, The Football Fever provides more delicious tears. Players, coaches, media all shell shocked. Clearly banked on NC game. Urbz recruiting from the podium, "loves these kids so much." Classic.
Here's to hoping OSU gets put in the Sugar Bowl with Bama, gets taken out to the woodshed and beaten like the dogs they are.
Evan Spencer has already given Bama bulletin board material too.
Sugar will be Bama OSU. Bama will replace the SEC automatic, and OSU will get first at-large bid.
BCS bowls get to pick in this order:
Orange (replacement for FSU) - probably Clemson to keep ACC ties
Sugar (replacement for Auburn) - probably Alabama to keep SEC ties
Orange (first in at-large pecking order) - more than likely OSU
It's highly doubtful that the Orange passes on Ohio St.
It was interesting to watch this game and see head coaches on the sidelines wearing headsets, holding play cards and making decisions.... Maybe I 'm missing something.
has OSU vs Clemson in the Orange Bowl and Bama vs Oklahoma in the Sugar.
Alabama will tear OKL a new one.
Bama/OSU Clemson/OKL is a much better match
Depends on which Bama team shows up. They laid a total egg against Utah one year in the Sugar Bowl after they ended up in the Sugar instead of the NC game.
Pretty amazing only 4 ppl voted on the OP with 1325 posts.
Is such a homer douchebag.
