alternate headline: man does job
Bucknuts posters...Hoke classless
Well they would be the authorities on the matter.
lol... he's so classless because he beat OSU wow.. OSU is a complete joke..
are giving credit where credit is due. if Urban does take the Ohio job (and assuming that the fix is in at the NCAA), we'll be looking at another ten year war. Good for the greatest rivalry in sport.
The one who made the thread seemed to want to start this huge Brady Hoke hating thread, but most didnt follow suit. It was a lot better than I thought especially after reading the tite of this thread
Don't you mean 3 year war considering Urban's "health problems"?
Have you ever been to Columbus?
I assume Urban has higher standards. I don't expect a recurrence of his health issues.
I guess I read their posts differently. It looked like a decent % were going with the "we gave them the game" and " their coach is fat " meme. I think you are giving them too much credit.
Atleast some posters pointed out that its no different then them calling us scUM or that team up north. But those fans seem to be very few and far between.
Technically it's not different from us being referred to as "Michigan" instead of "The University of Michigan". Just calling them "Ohio" is still a step above their petty name-calling.
I guess they're showing us what real Ohio class is about.
That's some impressive crossover action Morris has going with the hat (oversized and flat in an urban sort of way, rather than tight and curled, which would be more suburban).
I'm pretty sure that's a snapback. Nobody curls those kind of snapbacks.
It's probably the same guy who cavalierly dropped his hot dog wrappers on the ground after the game without even a thought. Probably because there aren't garbage cans every two feet.
Well, I'm wasted and i am currently making more sense than these shitbrains. Go blue. Beat Ohio.
That's "beat Ohio" in the past tense, correct?
after that it applies to next year.
who's an idiot. He calls Hoke classless then proceeds to call him things like "fat", "flounder", "slob", and "ass clown." The irony is pretty funny. The next couple comments I read through are fine. They're no worse than what we say on this blog.
One guy even said this: "He's not so bad. Good coach, great staff and a HUGE win. Urban will have his hands full in the future. This guy ain't mr nice guy Lloyd Carr."
A surprising amount even give credit to Hoke for winning today.
"We had to overthrow recievers all day and we were injured"
We gave you the ball twice inside our 35 (punt drop and the fumble), we gave you a free TD on the first series from blown coverage, and you still didnt win.
We put up 450 yards of offense on your D, and essentially had our way with them.
Dont forget, the only reason this "overthrown TD" would have had anyh impact was because they reversed a TD, and then called dual penalties on us.
Unbelieveable. Injuries happen, its why your team has depth charts.
This is exactly what went through my mind when i was reading their comments. They are just a bunch of children who only see what they want to see which to them meant blown officiating and freshman QB handing us a win...when in reality we both had calls that helped and hurt us, our offense won us a game today and our defense did what they had to do to win...all the other stuff is a push
...look in the mirror at their treatment of Fickell, and how they've allowed the media to treat Fickell for a grade A example of classlessness.
Fickell seems to be a decent guy and a loyal servant of Ohio thrown into a thankless situation who's done the best he can, and they've allowed him to be portrayed as a dead man walking for weeks now.
Personally, I think that is a repugnant way to treat one of your own who has done his best after suddenly being thrust into a high-pressure situation due to events largely beyond his control.
For shame, Ohio.
..and came to the same conclusion.
I think that the "Fuck Fickell" comment was just stupid. He walked into a 5-alarm blaze because his school needed him to. He's no doubt been through hell trying to keep everyone together while every douche with a media pass asks him what he thinks about Meyer taking his job. I agree that he's not a good head coach but he deserves some respect for keeping his sanity intact this season.
That the sanest poster on their postgame rant thread goes by the name of "poop" is a piece of irony I think I'll leave for another time.
is absolute genius. He's trying to help and they've wanted him out-the-door almost from day one.
I've never seen a bigger group of crybabies after a loss than the group that cheer for Ohio. They make excuses about everything, then when that river runs dry, they make the smallest little ant hill into Mt. Everest.
I mean honestly, they're really upset that Hoke calls them "Ohio"? scUM = class, Ohio = classless. Most delusional fans on the face of the earth.
Also: Jim Tressel and Woody Hayes.
I actually ended up watching the game with a Buckeye fan, and unfortunately know a couple. This is a completely indefensible position, and one I don't think is representative of any large portion of the fan base.....All that said, Go Blue!!!
Why are we even paying attention to what they're saying. Let's just sit back and enjoy the win while feasting on tears of unfathomable sadness!!!
Yes. Yes. Sweet tears.
didn't say too much in that op post other then thinking Urban would beat Michigan, not sure what the issue is. We won today and we have to prepare to win moving forward. Dunn is a great addition to a great start.
Also, our players are classless because they did what they do after the end of every practice. Isn't this the same school whose players ripped down OUR banner before the game?
I sat next to a (dare I say) reasonable bucknut fan during the game today and he said he actually prefers watching The Game in Ann Arbor vs Columbus because there are fewer obnoxious tsio fans to put up with. HA
At least they don't have gold pants to sell for tattoos. See, we did them a favor...
Some were blaming the refs! lol
Oh, boooooo hooooo.
Buckeyes calling another school's coach classless for calling them "Ohio" after Tressel's lies and Gene Smith's lack of contrition? After "That School Up North?" After "THE" Ohio State University? After calling themselves "Bucks" instead of "Buckeyes"?
"The" Ohio State University is one of my pet peeves. Both Miami (1809) and Ohio University (1804) were founded well before Ohio State (1870). Frankly, I think both schools have reason to be annoyed by the upstarts in Columbus.
I like how now they're suddenly calling the players classless. I'm sure if our players were acting classless they took lessons from the Tat 5.
I really think that meeting their team bus as it pulls in, unannounced and without warning, with police dogs to sniff them all for bomb-making material etc. was an incredibly classless thing to do. A player could have had a phobia about dogs, the dogs might have slipped their leash.... And generally it was a greasy way to get a cheap psychological advantage.
Oh, sorry. My mistake. That was the classy Saint Tressel. But calling Ohio State "Ohio" is of course much worse.
Did that really happen?
#1 Ohio State's Marching Band spells out "Ohio"
#2 Ohio State's fans chant O-H I-O -- never a state in there
#3 Many citizens of Ohio actually do call OSU - Ohio
Are we actually talking about Hoke referring to OSU as Ohio?
Mmmmm yes, your anguish sustains me.
If they don't want to be called "Ohio," why do none of their cheers, songs, or marching band formations ever contain the word "State" in them? It's always just "Ohio".
This is kind of a wonderful point. They're so obsessed with spelling it, and yet it's offensive.
let's be honest here, I would hate it if someone called me ohio.
It's the MMB's fault for not also showing them how to spell "State" back when.
I guess he tweeted saying he lost respect and the players were classless for the actions after the game.
Wow, I guess having your brother trash Michigan when he left wasn't classless?
and his traitorous, snow plowing, obese, POS older brother
and his entitled, sniveling old man who is lucky Bo wasn't alive to see the shit he pulled.
and his younger brother..just because he's a Boren.
Probably is pretty mild in comparison to the "Angry drunk" versions of this that will appear in the wee hours. I can't wait for Buckeye schadenfreude myself. It should provide days of endless amusement.
My favorite Buckeyes are the ones who:
1. Still worship Tress despite the storm he sailed their ship right in to due to his horrible judgement
2. Puff themselves up with "We will always win no matter what" then throw up excuse after excuse for a loss
3. Resort to 1, perhaps 2 (if cursing aided by a hyphen) syllable words to express their love/hate of a player/coach/game
4. I actually had a OSU grad cold call email me, then call and call and call, for a job. With a 2.7 GPA. I said "son, you need to get a Masters to offset your undergrad grades and if I were you, learn Mandarin or Portugese as Chin and Brazil will be incredibly important.".... He STILL came back with "uh, so you have no positions open?" Finally I said "With a 2.7 GPA, you wouldn't qualify as a receptionist." I had to be honest.
Including this magnificent gem brought up on this board a few months back. I have a hard time believing an Ohio grad could make words dance like this. Still, let's give credit where credit is due. The best part is it drips with irrational manic fear of what Hoke has going at Michigan.
What I'm saying is, Brady Hoke is, from a cultural standpoint, the perfect guy to coach the Michigan Wolverines football team. He is a pompous toad who squats upon the lilypad of elitism. Everything he has said after opening that gaping maw he calls a mouth has infuriated me to the point of violence, and I am starting to believe that nothing short of Ann Arbor being terrorized by Woody Hayes' rotting corpse would get him to stop talking about how awesome Michigan football is. More than any Michigan coach I can remember, I want to see his jowls shake with shame and sadness after yet another loss to Ohio State. His very existence has made me into a worse person, more vengeful and petty than ever before.
God bless you, Brady Hoke.
His very existence has made me into a worse person, more vengeful and petty than ever before.
That must've really taken some doing.
It's like a Dalek. You make them worse by giving them feel.
I have to admit I had to look that one up. Having done so, I like the reference.
Your opposition wishes he were back:
See Rich Rod
See John L. Smith
See John Cooper
Now... See Lloyd Carr....
I see how it could be that way... Sorry Lloyd.
On the one hand the fan who wrote the article is a flaming idiot, on the other hand quite a few other fans shot him down, said it's no different than what they do, and gave Hoke credit on not just the win, but the entire turnaround this season and I was pleasantly surprised. In contrast I have roughly a dozen Sparty friends on FB and I saw not a single post from them about MSU, their win over Northwestern, or the upcoming B1G Championship game vs Wisconsin. I did see 4 different posts from them about Michigan, though, all of them on par with the bucknuts article. All 4 posts turned into long discussions of exclusive Michigan bashing. SMH
So just to clarify, calling them Ohio is a classless act but lying to the NCAA, and playing ineligible players is cause for sainthood. Sounds reasonable to me.
In their warped little minds, of course.
I sat around several Ohio fans today and the only people who's class could be question were sadly Michigan fans. Maybe the guy setting next to me uses the OSU fans mothers services but I think he was just being a tool.
Every fanbase has their assholes, Ohio may have more than most but it is what it is.
We had 2 buckeyes sit next to us today and they were very gracious nice people. They went out of their way to say how happy they were Hoke understood the rivalry and what a difference a year has made, they also commented on how good they think our basketball team can be. That said as we were walking out we heard UofM fans yelling at these 2 guys just because they were wearing red, calling them names and giving them hell, morale of the story every fanbase has assholes even a few of ours(only a few).
Hoke is classless? What a load of shit, not sure how many people know this but the chants and cheers Ohio fans take part in are 1000x worse than calling them Ohio. I was seating in section 11 row 88 (Ohio section) and the one cheer that really pissed me off is when they would kick off to us they would yell, "Rip his fucking head off!" Just think that is on a different level than calling them Ohio. Also the "lyrics" they have created for out fight song were pretty telling. Also, they bitched everytime i called them Ohio saying i was being disrespectful. Then they take part in their cheers, hypocritical dumbasses.
I will say i saw some Michigan fans that don't shine us in the brightest light, but for the most part i will say we traeted the Ohio fans with much more respect than they showed us, especially the MMB.
I will say that not all of the Ohio fans were horrible, there was a father and son in front of me and they actually shook my hand and said good luck in our bowl. They were friendly throughout the game and we took part in light trash talking throughout the game.
Regardless, Go Blue! 40-34.
are obscene and "they", or the majority of their fans in Section 13 knew all the vulgar words. I hadn't heard these colorful modifications before but they took it to a new low. The parent near me probably didn't enjoy his under ten year old daughter hearing those words all day - bur surely enjoyed the final score and their quiet Buckeye tears afterward.
Lost a large amount of the smoke respect I had for the fans of that cesspool down south.
I bet Coach Hoke will take abuse from the trailer parks of Ohio as a trade-off for beating THE Ohio. Could be wrong, but it's just a hunch.
Was an asshole to some Ohio state fans today, all in the name of football. It wasn't worth it, and I wish I would have let our young men in maize and blue do all the talking.
Section 13, row 6-ish: I owe you all an apology.
to live in bizarro world where you can cheer for a team of convicts and cheaters yet still feel justified calling anyone else "classless."
Eh, it's a couple of OSU "fans" whining about their team losing to UM and lashing out at Hoke. Most of them admitted that it was not different than scUM and TTUN (which is bit of a stretch, but whatever). This should be a fun rivalry. And I know they are all excited about the prospect of Meyer coming to Columbus and blowing the doors off UM again, but his resume (outside of the BCS titles) looks like a guy who might struggle early on at OSU as he installs his program and gets the right coaches, and I'm not sure Columbus is any more forgiving than A2 for a couple of down years. I mean, Fickell was basically fired as soon as they lost to Miami.
Should be an interesting couple of years.
There was a recent thread or maybe a diary about Hoke pictures of him pointing in all possible imaginable ways. I can't find it via search - anyone willing to post it again.
I was surprised at how many on Bucknuts gave Hoke credit. Then again, it's easy to be cordial when you still have beat Michigan for nine of the last ten years. But that shall change soon.
We did win in 2003 and 2011 so we are at least 2-8
As a general rule, I never understand these arguments about "classiness" made by any fanbase (including UM). It's F-ing football, and college football at that. It's a game played by teens and early 20-somethings and consumed by herds of (mostly) older men and women for entertainment. Unless Braxton Miller, Tom Gholston, or Mike Martin rips the head off a chicken, defecates on a cheerleader, and then flips off school staff members during the game, I don't really care about the "classless" moniker being attached to a couple of name-callings and taunts. There are bigger deals to get worked up about in this world.
you were expecting from the Ohio State boards. In fact, not sure what you were doing on the OSU boards. How about you just enjoy the victory and not worry so much about what irrational Buckeye fan is taslking about?
"It's been pointed out that they just beat the worst OSU team in 10-12 years..."
Hmmm... I think I heard once before that that doesn't matter in this game. Now where did I hear it?
That guy is right, we should give them the respect they deserve as a hallowed and dignified institution. I propose switching to Wojo's nomenclature and calling them The Ohio from now on, instead.
He's fat. That seems to be the base of their complaints. Never mind that Tressel decimated his own program, and they still worship him. Now that I know that the term 'Ohio' annoys them so, I think we should continue the trend of never calling them Ohio State. It was asking the buckeye student fans how it felt to visit a University they could never get accepted to...
I still think our fans are a little bit more elegant in our loses.
That is because we have lives outside of football and they don't revolve solely around a game played 3 months out of the year by 18-22 year old men.
