IT all depends on their level of fandom. Casual it doesnt matter but if it's hardcore then no.
OT: Would you EVER marry a buckeye?
A casual buckeye is a massive fail in my book. but to each their own, brother. thanks for responding.
I live in the Buckeye State so I have fewer options
its terrible. theyre everywhere
I don't tell people when I meet them for the first time that I go to U of M and I don't expect someone reasonable from tOSU to do that either. If they do that they're waaay too into their school. I'm a proud member of the U of M and Mgoblog community, but those things doesn't define who I am. I would never marry a bucknut because their pryorities (see what I did there?) are so far out of whack, but I wouldn't rule out a reasonable chick who happens to have attended class at Ohio State.
Still, I don't think a reasonable OSU girl exists.
Edit: I realized I contradicted myself knda but I'm also drunk/insomniacing happy Santo Patricio's weekend everybody
Being frankly honest, when I moved out here (Kansas), it was very hard for me not to absurdly blurt out where I went to school (and how good our school is). When you live in Michigan, people know what UofM is and what it means to graduate from there. But around here all people can think is, "Oh, Detroit is one of the worst cities in the country." I try to cope with my UofM arrogance daily and at the same time struggle with the Detroit stereotype. I can't wait for the day I can move back home and turn things around for the better.
Basically, you are a better man that I.
You know, at work, one of the first questions people will ask is "Where did you go to school." Especially during football season. I proudly say I went to U of M, anticipating that they hate me for it. They typically don't but it's always fun when a girl went to OSU, bc you can tell as soon as she hears you say Michigan, her face goes bitter beer style.
the slum and hive of villainy that it is, and unsurprisingly, most of the people around are OSU fans. There are also a number of Blue Jackets fans.
I was looking online for a Wings scrub cap, but couldn't find one reasonably, so I just happened to look for a Michigan scrub cap. Found and bought. They're not going to be asking me where I went to school.
Now I'm going to get to hear people refuse to let me put them to sleep because I graduated from the wrong school.
they'd realize that you being a Michigan grad instead of an OSU grad probably increases their chances of waking up.
of course they might wake up with a big block M tattoo on their forehead.
be anything wrong with that, would there?
for me that is a moot point. Im Married to a Cornhusker Native. Irony to the question, is that my grandfather is originally from clevland. So tell me, did any of you see the commercial on ESPN. In 2006, where the guy jumps from the car over college team differences?
I'm glad I could drunkenly invoke an MGoEntry!
my condolences. U Neb is right up there with OSU, UT(exass), O State, etc.
While she may be a loyal corhusker fan.She is respectful of my Wolverines and will even sport a Block M shirt on occasion. The fans of Nebraska i have met in Lincoln are down to earth.
That is all.
only if she's hot enough and nice enough to be worth the trouble.
for example, if this woman wanted to marry you, but told you she was a buckeye fan, could you refuse?
i wouldnt have the willpower.
According to her Wiki page, she has no affiliation with OSU.
i work in a college town, i see that quality, but younger all the time...
You might see it, but you can't get it. No MGoBlogger could.
i might, i'm still in college myself
Let's not speak for the whole mgoblogger community, mmkay?
With the right quantity of alcohol I say I have a one in a million chance.
damn that movie was funny. My favorite part would have to be the snowball fight with Jeff Bridges. Either that or the scene with the peppers on the sandwiches. When they start shooting the ketchup in the air I still can just about fall off the couch laughing. +1 to you sir.
sorry double post
one could say I have tremendous upside.
Not to mention a fine motor.
I also play to the whistle every time?
Okay, I need to stop.
She actually is from NYC, and I have friends who were in her class. If i hadn't been sent to catholic school, I would have been too :(
"Look at her! She looks like a hooker. Could you love someone who looked like that"
"What are you talking about? Of course not! Five, ten minutes tops, maybe."
+1. Fletch remains an all-time fave.
Look what happens when you finish your degree. I am proud of you Van Wilder.
Oh, wait...she has a face too....nice as well...took me awhile to look up...
I too am married, so unless something changes, I don't have to worry about that. But If I weren't married, I couldn't see myself doing it. I went to school in (Sl)Ohio and I don't like much about the state at all. So if I had to visit inlaws and converse with Bucknuts more often than I have to now because of my frat brothers, I'd take up a hobby like crystal meth. I already get way too many e-mails about all things that are Ohio right now because we are down at Michigan. What's almost as bad, is that Cleveland makes fun of Detroit. At least Detroit's river never caught fire. Sorry about that, just thinking about it made my Disdain for Ohio come back to the forefront of my brain all at once!
bleeding Maize and Blue -- it sucked, and i lived on the border. I understand your pain. I had a job interview in C-bus, and I just couldn't do it. Cleveland yes, but not C-bus. I took a long shower after the interview.
that pic just makes me sick. A blonde is a terrible thing to waste.
Nice stripper heels!
Probably works the dancing establishments around C-bus.
i honestly almost did.. we never ended up working out though, and that's probably a good thing. as weird as it sounds i believed the relationship was doomed to a degree because both of her parents were OSU alums and she was a big fan.
i have zero problem with Buckeye fans that understand Michigan and have respect. i grew up in Ohio and I can promise you that MOST Buckeye fans have no idea about how great of an institution UofM is as a whole. about 90% of the time UM is referred to as scUM, dirty, crappy, etc. they act as if OSU is by far a superior school compared to Michigan, which is f'ing laughable. i cant explain how ignorant Ohio residents are when it comes to UofM. all they know is that they hate Michigan, and Michigan is dirty. they are nuts.
Ignorance is probably the best way to describe most Suckeye fans.
My lil sis met one, married him, converted to the darkside, and is now unhappy. We don't talk to her much. I was long gone in the military when this happened or i would have stopped it. It is confirmed the two don't mix. Go Blue!
to give it serious thought since it's well known Buckeye women love nuts.
a dear friend for so many years...
I would never even consider doing such a atrocity.
Appreciate the post. Gave me quite a good chuckle when i woke up.
Absolutely not. I would get sick every time there was a sporting event between us.
in about 20 years
under one of those weird scenarios, like where a guy holds a gun to your head and says I'll make you marry two buckeyes if you don't marry a buckeye....
my wife and her family are huge buckeye fans, it almost ended our relationship twice. i was born and raised in ohio so its hard for me not to find a chick who isnt a buckeye. She is actually coming to the spring game this year and she has came with me to the last two uofm and ostate games in ann arbor. Plus she is hot so it was hard not to marry her.
I would only if she was really hot but if she was a diehard fan then no.
I guess the question for me would have to be "Is she willing to convert?". If she is willing to Go Blue then I suppose I could look past her past. Marrying a bucknut that would not convert would be like marrying a prostitute that was still working. No matter what I would always feel like she was cheating on me.
I think most of the posters here should worry about their wives or girlfriends cheating on them.
Not a problem I have to worry about, my wife went to Albion. She did her grad time at Michigan State, but she shows no alliance to the Spartans. I've got her converted, she was with me at the Joe last night sporting her Maize and telling Reichard, "You suck!".
My girlfriend's dad did his undergrad at State. He then did UofM dental school. When we get him drunk all he does is talk about how he nearly flunked out of UofM but coasted through MSU. When he gets REALLY loaded he continues to talk about how big of "cocksuckers" all Spartans are. he's made his other daughter (my gf's sister, a Spartan) cry a few times over it.
The guy is basically ashamed that he did his undergrad at MSU. Listening to his rants is one of the best ways to spend your drinking time.
Sickness is in the vows right? I mean if being a Buckeye isn't a sickness I don't know what is... Also women try to change us all the time. Maybe the challenge of converting could be fun. Plus after this season we'll get back to competing with them and I could come up with some pretty creative bets.
If she went to OSU and wanted to marry me, I'd say yes.
Let's turn the question around: What if you met a wonderful woman, beautiful, sexy, fun to be with, and the two of you just click in every way. The only thing are not in synch with is where you went to university. Somehow, I think you might find a way to have fun with it and deal with her father and brothers who are good people until it comes to university sports. You could deal with their insufferable buckey-ness because she is the woman made for you. You will live happily ever after (except for the last Saturday in November).
Agreed. You don't pass that up because she'll be rooting for a different team a couple times a year. Unless she always roots against Michigan. Then you'd have a problem.
You will live happily ever after (except for the last Saturday in November).
Obviously you have not been reading any of the PUMP UP posts. Starting next season, we are going to be a MACHINE (with lazers attached to our helmets of course), Bo will be reincarnated, and we will not lose a game EVER AGAIN!
a couple of years before I got married. she was 5' 11, a doctor, blode hair, blue eyes , stunningly beautiful , and great personality.33 y/o ,no children, and funny everything was going great until we got on the subject of fandom. she went to med school at osu so I asked her if we had children would we raise our children to be buckeyes or wolverines? she said no kid of mine would ever be a wolverine and at that moment I broke up with her because that statement proved she was unfit to be a parent.
Post on these circle-jerk threads that sends an already unbelievable amount of posts (yes. Message Board Guy has soooo many choices when it comes to women) over the top.
You sir, have raised the Bullshit Meter to a point where it has exploded.
She didn't go to MSU. She went to Western but she grew up in the East Lansing area and her father went to MSU which, in many ways, is worse. Her father and I get along fine but our conversation usually progresses towards U of M and MSU sports. My wife tenses up every time as we often toe the fine line between innocent banter and spiteful debate.
She is a big enough fan as to where it's slightly annoying when Michigan plays MSU, especially these past couple of years. On the plus side, she has absolutely no desire to go to U of M games with me. I will argue that this fact is reason alone to marry the enemy, my friends.
I also dated an ND fan the summer before I went to U of M. Her father was an ND grad and she ended up going to St. Marys. We broke up before football season so who knows how that would have played out.
Never done OSU. It's easy to say that you'd never have a relationship with an OSU fan, but you just never know how the cards will fall.
She started grad school there, because it was good in her program, and that's where I met her. But she hated it there, and left to get her doctorate at Kentucky. She said about MSU "all they want to do is drink". So I guess it's what Bo said about the players in Ohio who leave...only the good ones.
Is why you'd marry a buckeye and not, say, an almond? Or perhaps a hazelnut? I mean, eating an almond or hazelnut is enjoyable. Buckeyes aren't edible.
Silly, silly, WichitanWolverine.
And you definitely want to be able to eat who you marry.
I am indeed married to a Buckeye. An actual alumnus, who after the 2007 game traded in her Buckeye gear for Michigan gear due to the actions of her former Buckeye fans.
when you grow up knowing one thing and are introduced to something else, you have an opportunity to make a choice. It was clear to her which way to go after seeing both sides.
Love knows no school loyalty, thank God.
I would certainly call it a huge win for the Wolverines in this match up.
I am sorry to sound like Jerry Seinfeld, but I could NEVER marry a buckeye. If she was a closet SUCKEYE fan, I would break up with her on the spot if I found out.
Yes, I married a buckeye. I was born and raised in Ohio as a Michigan fan.... you really didn't have much of a choice. She went to osu for 2 years, come from an all buckeye family, and her and her sister actually hold the Guiness World Record for the longest buckeye necklace made, unfortunately. On top of our wedding cake was Wolverine and a buckeye helmet.
However, I'm happy to admit that she has convert to Michigan. After several fights she has finally realized the game is more important to me than herself. Last year we attended 4 Wolverine games and she tells people we are now a Michigan family.
So, if you can convert them, by all means.... one less buckeye in the world makes it a better place.
Good old game theory...
That's crazy but awesome. I don't know, maybe I like fighting, but i wouldn't mind if my wife had gone to OSU. Maybe it would lead to great balance in the relationships. I don't think it'd be weird to argue with your wife about a playcall, but i think it'd also be pretty funny.
To me marrying a suckeye would be like marrying a girl who practices a different religion w/ totally different beliefs. Expecially if you both considered yourselves to be religious. For example; you're Catholic and she's Mormon. Where do you go on Sunday? What do you teach your kids? Who's right and who's wrong? It'll just end up costing you time and money a few years down the road in an ugly divorce. Trust me fellas, you can choose who you love. So do yourselves a favor, marry a true Blue fan.
My uncle married a woman whose entire family (6 brothers and sisters, parents, grandparents, yadda yadda) went to OSU, except her. My family has Michigan alums from 1905 onward, and the non-alums are huge UM fans too.
...It was an interesting wedding.
Also, the kids are being raised Michigan fans because they are geographically closer to my uncle's side of the family. My aunt is a really sweet person who just happened to be raised in a rabid OSU household; not so much a rabid fan herself.
I have to co-sign on that one. I can respect Buckeyes (begrudgingly) because they are at least cheering for themselves to win more than for UM to lose, (though I admit there are a fair number who do both). Spartans, however, seem pathologically focused on seeing UM come up short, no matter what the circumstance. That's a sign of no pride in oneself. I don't have any respect for an institution or individual who doesn't have any pride.
"she is rooting for her team, not strictly against yours."
This has not been my general experience with OSU fans, except for those aged 50+
I hate Ohio State as much as the next guy, and I am very passionate about my sports, but at the end of the day, real life still takes priority, and my choice of spouse is included with that.
That is assuming, however, that she is a civilized Buckeye (Insert oxymoron joke here). She can be a big OSU fan, but she can't be a redneck. That's kind of a given though, because I wouldn't marry anybody from any school that acts like far too many Buckeyes tend to.
I actually know a couple of Buckeyes that I get along quite well with. They're good for talking sports with and having the rivalry with, less riots and car-turning. If I found a girl that fell into that category and met my other desires for a wife, I would not decline to marry her because of her school affiliation.
I would probably not, however, go through with my currently planned engagement idea, which may or may not involve a football game... *cough*
you proposing this year at the big house? i'll keep an eye out for you.
I've never even managed to score a girlfriend, much less think about proposing to one.
Look for me in 2015 or so, lol.
I know right?
HEY EVERYONE! COME SEE HOW STRAIGHT I AM AND DEDICATED TO MICHIGAN!
Well, it's not like there are slim pickings at UM...
My wife is a UM graduate, but if she had graduated from any number of other schools I would have been fine. The issue tends to be with the attitude of the alumni, not the actual individual - there are quite a few UM people I could never see myself marrying in a million years because of their attitude, while I have met some great Spartans and Buckeyes who would make great spouses because they are down-to-earth, nice people.
(wife walks in)
That said, UM girls rock!
I hate to admit it but there are comparatively few hot girls at UofM. My GF went there, and I got lucky snagging one of the few hot ones, but on the whole they are not nearly as hot as girls at MSU, Western, Central. I've never been to OSU so I can't fairly make that comparison but when it comes to looks alone I think Michigan comes up short. This is based on looks alone, though.
it's a pleasant filter being at UofM because you know they won't be as dumb as a nut
Overall, great girl. Attractive, but not entirely smart with world events. Her fandom is really not that intense. She hates Michigan because that is what she was suppose to do at OSU. She even admits that OSU, despite their recent success, still envy Michigan in its entirety. Overall, her fandom is not that annoying.
With that, I still don't know if I will marry her because she is a Buckeye.
plus the first time i had sex with my wife i had my michigan shirt on to let her know how its gonna be!
Get the urge to punch a random dude wearing OSU gear... I of course do so very successfully in my mind... So I guess what better way to punish an OSU woman than making her deal with all my nastiness. I can be pretty gross.
Always ask on your 1st date(getting to know them) "Would we raise kids Buckeyes or Wolverines?"
If they were to say "Buckeyes" leave.
If they were to say "I don't care." Make your kid a Wolverine fan at the earliest stage, so they don't get the bandwaggoner OSU disease.
...and how many first dates have you been on? No offense but that's kind of creepy.
Quite a few, but I haven't been on one with a OSU fan, and I don't plan to.
you caught me before I could edit out my sleep-deprived-don't-want-to-be-at-work-right-now bitchiness.
but I admit, I seriously think my uncle would've called off his engagement if he found out his wife wanted to raise their kids Buckeyes like the rest of her family.
That's what every True Blue fan would of done.
no offense, bro, but you might get more second dates if you don't bring up raising kids on the first.
Is: How many second dates have you been on?
Or, how many first dates lasted longer than it took the chick to look at this guy and think, "Wow. I thought I was going to have some fun tonight."
For me, that'd be a deal breaker! I know, its a little juvenile but Michigan football has been, is, and always will be a HUGE part of my life. Its my passion! Im like jimmy fallon in Fever Pitch! So i can't imagine my wife not being on my side. Its a deal breaker. Go blue!
No. As many have said, it might be a possibility if their fandom wasn't too intense.
God, I love the offseason!
on so many levels.

you also have to adjust for drunkenness. allow a year in tolerance for every shot of liquor.
I must admit that I married a Bucknut..but I also have divorced a Bucknut!
Against my better judgment (the little head was thinking for the big head) I had a relationship with a smoking hot gal from the State of Michigan who had a 20+ year relationship with a former OSU football player. He paid for her daughters education at OSU and she worked at OSU for a number of years. She said she bled scarlet & gray and believe me that on more then one occasion I wanted to stab her to find out if it were true. Her hatred for U of M was unreal and her love for the buckeyes knew no boundaries. The fights we had over the rivalry were of legend. The makeup sex equally so. Our last fight ended the relationship. Finally after an OSU basketball victory over UofM she was going on and on about how great OSU and how shitty we are with the venom of a viper. Once she tasted wolverine blood she became unbearable. I was afraid she was going to go out side and tip my car over in her personal celebration. I finally couldn't take her anymore. I told her you may have won the game but you'll always be an asshole. I left and never saw her again. Thank God!
...if she had a relationship for 20 years and had multiple daughters graduate college?? She sounds 60.
Smoking hot with or without her dentures?
But she'd have to make Megan Fox look like an absolute troll
Was she 40 at the time?
Why? Because, tattooed on the head of my schwanz is a snarling wolverine head for my soldiers to come marching out of! You know it, bros. We're always bangin' out to Journey and Motley Crue. In my room, I got my smoke machine plugged in 24/7, and a box of sparklers for special occasions.
+1 for smoke machines.
Ah, astronaut pancakes. That picture describes this thread of fail.
This was my favorite post in a long time when it was used on the MgoJen thread yesterday, and it still is.
Funny picture of the pancake astronaut.
ONLY IF SHE WEARS A MIKE HART MASK TO BED, AMIRITE?
ONLY IF SHE WEARS A MIKE HART MASK TO BED, AMIRITE?
I wouldn't doubt if all of the "agree-ers" here wouldn't rather suck Mike Hart's schlong than date ANY girl?
I wonder how many "principled" "I would never do/date/marry an OSU grad" folks would turn this young lady away? And by the time she is done and asks her question, how many would not have so much drool dripping down their chin that they would answer any way she wants? And if she actually turned out to be a girl worthy of taking home to mom and spending many years together, would do so in a heartbeat?
YOU THIEVING BASTARD!
I'd bang her..but I still dont like Ohio State.
....she's not worth taking home to mom....
(I wonder who bought her tits for her...? They could have used them on someone with a little bit better face...)
Edit: But yeah, I'd do her.
She went to collage at tOSU. Every year tOSU sends her a letter, we need $ from you with those little address stickers in them with our address, I cut off the block red O and use the tags. screw you buckeye school.....no soup for you.
I live in central Ohno and have two little M fans running around the house.
And we made our reception entrance to "The Victors," with all of her Sparty friends and family in attendance
For a brief, shining moment, I was full of win.
I was in Columbus for the game in 2006. I had a brief conversation with a nice woman dressed in scarlet and grey. I'm paraphrasing her:
"I'll bet you've been treated just terribly here today. I hate that about our fan base. Please understand that about 10% of us think Michigan is a special place and we just enjoy the rivalry. I apologize for our jerk fans."
She was sincere and a class act. Wouldn't automatically rule out her or the other 10% of the Buckeye lady fans.
Sounds like a nice girl.
Isn't the offseason wonderful? This is by far the busiest thread today and we have spring ball and the NCAA tourney to talk about, and this is the busiest thread...wonderful!
Of course I could... M and OSU are one in the same, the Ying and Yang, the Love and Hate.
But only if the OSU spouse is female... That way M fucks OSU.
