Gentleman, of the MGoBoard Community. I had the undeserving priveledge of rooming with an OSU fan during college. We are sitting here on this beautiful Memorial Day weekend bullshitting about the futures of our college football programs.He is trying to tell me that I am dipping into mediocrity and I am accepting failure for our football program. He is also at the same time trying to tell me that he is a closet Michigan fan and that he roots for M to make OSU look better. I am having a hard time dealing w/ this because he refuses to look at attrition. He continues to tell me that RR was a terrible hire and I just should accept the facts. He refuses to believe that he is Jimmy off of South Park and doesnt look at the facts. Fellas please give me some help here. I cant stand to listen to him speak anymore. I have had way too much kool-aid and this guy isnt even on my level at this point. I keep pointing back to the John Cooper years and he acts like they never happened. Please give me something to work with because nothing seems to be on my side right now...
Please Help> w/ ex OSU roomate...>>
Well, I guess it is time to turn to murder.
murder is definitely something to consider. unfortunately, though, i think this roommate is acting within the terms of the deal. they've beaten us six straight times. this is what happens. take it like a man and it'll make our next six-game streak that much sweeter.
I mean, everyone kills people. Steals from me, steals from you. It sounds like that should be right up his alley.
Thank you TP.
Force feed (or just convince him that a true OSU fan would eat them) him some buckeyes, cause they're supposedly poisonous.
first off, the rivalry record. in the know buckeye fans will respond quickly w/ 1900's bs, selective history, etc, and thats just fine. then bring up 2-10-1, and how OSU struggled even more than we are now.
close to 70% of Michigan's roster are freshmen and sophomores. theyre only going to improve.
bring up how rampant cheating allegations have followed Tressel from YSU to OSU.
mock OSU at how theyre still #2 to Michigan all time despite having the #1 fertile recruiting ground state in the big 10 and a top 5 one in the country.
bash OSU's academics compared to Michigan
Michigan has better uniforms, tradition, fight song, bigger and better stadium, and they always demolish OSU in the director's cup standings.
i know i could go on, but that should suffice for now
This is a dong-punching site, after all, and he asked for our advice.
You're right. So 15 minutes ago. So, what to use as an alternative? ....
- "Shit kicking"? No, too redneck. Better for an SEC or MSU fan site.
- "Dolphin punching"? No, we don't punch dolphins around here, either. We leave that to guys like Nick Saban and Mark Dantonio (see "Shit kicking" and "rednecks").
- "Bishop beating"? No, definitely not that either.
I'm definitely at a loss on this one.
First, learn how to use white space. Breaks between program/he, attrition/he, and here/I, for example, would have made this a lot more enjoyable read. It also would have made you look a lot more like a seasoned mgoblogger.
As for your dilemma, I would suggest distance ASAP: adios, hasta la vista, bon soir, ciao, etc. Expecting an OSU fan not to rub it in is like expecting a hound not to howl. Good luck.
they can't even get along with each other. This video always makes me feel even more proud of my fan base. Because his is nothing but morons.
Sack up and take it like a man. We're not as good as they are right now. The more shit you take like a man now, the better it will feel when you can dish it out again.
him why OSU can not win the big games. Getting there means little, if you dont win.
He will bring up the 2010 Rose Bowl. That's going to increase the battle. Simple as this: Ask him if his college has ever had an alum walk on the moon? Done. Owned.
He wouldn't bring it up because he's bullheaded, he'll bring it up because that's exactly what he should bring up in that situation.
Use the numbers, my friend.
--57-43-6 (overall UM vs OSU). If he says that the early 1900s were a wash, say "OSU was one school that had a football team in that era, and M beat them 9 times in a row." Incidentally, this is a good counter to the current 6-game losing streak.
--0-9 (OSU bowl record vs. SEC teams, 3 of those losses have come under JT). Michigan, for their part, has done well vs. SEC teams in recent bowls: 2008 Outback we beat Florida, 2000 Orange we beat Alabama.
--RR was not a terrible hire, the team was simply in ruins when he came in. For evidence of this, search for the "Decimated Defense" diaries and pick your favorite factoids from them. Also, Sheridan and Threet vs. Tate and Dernard. 'Nuff said.
--1 for 3 in NC games under Tressel. Two of those games were lost. Badly. Troy Smith was Gator Bait in 2007 fresh after beating M in The Greatest Installment of The Rivalry Ever, Inc.
Somehow I don't think 1-3 in NC games under Tressel is that much of an insult...
Except when you lose one of them 41-14 with Troy Smith on your team.
Well, you're welcome to try it, but "Remember that time when you lost big time in the BCS Championship Game?" isn't going to shut anyone up.
If he went to OSU, there's a good chance that's a twosome.
Remind him that "Ohio is still a four-letter word."
In what part of the country, may I ask, are the two of you rooming together in?
with the pizza delivery man?
/can't talk....goes to community college
Goddammit, remind him who the hell Charles Woodson and/or Desmond Howard are and ask him how the hell the 90's went...oh, he's from Ohio State so his revisionism won't much let him remember before 2001...and speaking of 2001 please ask him how Maurice Clarett is doing these days?
Isn't he trying to get into the NFL... I think he's shit out of luck
Tell him you had sex with his wife.
works at Best Buy now.
by sleeping with his girlfriend. He will never live that one down.
