Caught this over on buckyville and had to share. We're Princess Leia?
Big Ten Power Rankings: Star Wars Edition
So Ohio St. fans have nothing better to do than compare the Big Ten to Star Wars?
Off Tackle Empire is a Big Ten blog.
Northwestern is clearly an Ewok. Cute, cuddly with a nasty side. And a penchant for shovel passes and dig routes.
I dunno, but the MSU one is pretty funny...
A guy with some serious daddy issues, he's been spending his whole life trying to find his own way and be his own man. And you can't tell me those Skywalker crazy eyes aren't the same ones Dantonio flashes half a dozen times on the sideline.
Luke has more than just daddy issues. Remember, he made out with his sister (Leia / UM), and they have that awkward relationship afterwards. Then Luke lost his hand to Vader (maybe not this year, but close).
Will Muschamp doesn't get it
I'm a star wars fanboy, and I couldn't think of better analogies off the top of my head. Though I really would love to work Wedge Antilles in there somewhere.
Needs admiral Akbar as well.
We're 5-0. It's a trap!
I generally stay away from Off Tackle Empire. SBNation I guess figured that because the South is crazy about ESS EEE SEE (as opposed to their own teams) that we would be too. Figures our conference's SEC-like representative is pretty much the only guys there. It's basically another Buckeyes blog where they regularly employ "scUM" etc.
I wouldn't say it's totally an OSU blog, but it is definitely an anti-Michigan blog. I've gone over there a few times, and there aren't any M fans that post. Lots and lots of OSU and MSU fans with other teams sprinkled in. Many high fives go around when someone makes a dig at Michigan's expense. It's pretty much the cool thing to do over there. Read the comments in some of the previous power polls or bowl predictions if you want verification.
If you track the power polls throughout the season, you'll see that Michigan being ranked as 2 is a big deal (they started out 8th while OSU was 2). The writer of the power polls also made the preseason prediction of 5-7 for Michigan. I kind of like the idea of a Big Ten site, so I could read the perspectives of other fan bases. But, Off Tackle Empire is not great , especially if you are a Michigan fan. I actually liked the site when it was The Rivalry Esquire and had two main writers (Michigan fan/OSU fan). It's gone downhill since those two writers took a back seat to loudmouths with pretty obvious biases.
I found this to be pretty funny,
Bahaha the Minny = Schmi one is fantastic, these are all pretty good.
Shmi got the biggest laugh from me as well. Pretty good list.
I think the most important thing in this article, is not the character that we were given, but the fact that EVEN THE BUCKEYE NATION ranks us 2nd!!!!
NEEDS MOAR PORKINS
I'm going with Notre Dame as C-3PO. Thinks they're more important than they are but really, just an embarrassment.
But remember, it is against his programming to impersonate a deity.
Speaking Latin and too concerned about their appearance.
I was kinda hoping that OSU would be Jabba - they've been the big boys in town for much of the last decade, but Princess Leia (Michigan) is going to kill Jabba.
Also, Jabba frequently employed the services of gun slinging bounty hunters who were slime balls that would go to the highest bidder. That fits nicely with OSU as well. Although I can't think of a slimey enough one to be TP. Bobofet was too cool to be TP....maybe quido.
Luke is an upstart who will be a champion some day, this in no way discribes sparty. I think they are more like Shakey the homeless wino. He runs around the universe claiming to be Luke in a drunken stupor and occasionally gets some one to give him a day old cheese burger. Can't win on his own but occasional takes advantage of a down on there luck champion and act like that makes them a champion too. It doesn't they are still just drunk and homeless.
"...they are still just drunk and homeless."
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
I was thinking General Grievous for Sparty - someone who thinks he is more powerful than he really is and the power he has is short-lived.....
This is so perfect. I have nothing constructive or thoughtful to add to it. Just wanted to say I love it!
