Priceless reaction to an irrelevant thread. I need a Joose.
Lots of replies and good conversation for such an irrelevant thread.
Some people only want the board to contain basically....nothing. Maybe a WOOOOO thread after we win a game. And a thread discussing the game if there's not a Liveblog filled with statements of genius. No projection into the future at all. But a LOT of charts on the past.
Thanks. Just got some strange reactions for a post -
- about college football
- about bowl season (which is basically tomorrow)
- about our rivals
Wasn't sure how that was irrelevant. Or deserving of snark at all.
It'd probably be what we were talking about. That's how I see the board.
Probably talking about all the BCS bowls, but you kept it relevant by keeping it B10/Michigan opponent related.
There just seems to be a rush to be the first guy to bomb a new thread. They should all be plussing you for finding a topic that doesn't strictly involve Rich and Harbaugh.
you're really on my ass lately.
i have no need to be 'first.' the OP brought up an open-ended question which was "do we hope OSU plays a good team or bad team?" i really didn't get the thought pattern or interest in the slight of such a question, to the point it came off as 'posting for the sake of posting.' obviously some people agree with me. i've had about 9 different thoughts about CFB today that i found a way not to post. implying that anything should be posted as long as it's not RR or JH, though, is a bit of a misnomer. board posts outside of news/quick bites really should be longer than 3 sentences IMO.
tl;dr : you're a hater so i must be doing well. /kattwilliams'd
There are a number of people in this and other threads practically opening up the new ones one by one to just post snark. You may have had a dozen college football thoughts you felt were irrelevant, so you didn't post them (I don't know...since you didn't post them), but what you have posted is why it may seem "I'm on your ass"...because it's mainly contributed of just this...snark remarks on how much every thread sucks, Michigan fans suck, suck suck suck. THAT you feel is more valuable than 3 sentence threads? One word posts? It goes to you, or someone posting explosions, head slaps, or violations. (Which I thought the main objection was too much CC talk...now it's all talk).
Frankly, I know you have more to contribute than that. Instead of complaining about all the content, why don't you add some great content, and the rest will fade into the ether. Or join in more on the threads you do like. Or don't. But don't feel persecuted when you're out jumping on everyone for their content.
If it means anything, he had an interesting reply about MSU's bowl game to this dumb ass thread below.
I have no idea what you're talking about
this seems outlandish
I really have a hard time understanding what value you add to this board.
Well UConn plays the ACC champ, so don't worry about that.
Don't they have an automatic BCS bid if they win?
the Big East isn't a BCS conference anymore.
How does he not know that??
According to ESPN -
"Dave Teggart had four field goals, including a career-long 52-yarder with 17 seconds to play, as Connecticut clinched the Big East's automatic Bowl Championship Series berth Saturday night with a 19-16 win over South Florida."
missed the joke
So won't they get the Big East Champ to match up vs. the Big 12 Champ?
UConn will be in the Fiesta Bowl unless one of the bowls with an earlier pick chooses to take them, which won't happen.
My little girl will be cheering the "puppies" in that bowl game! Puppies. How appropriate.
And won't that be a riveting matchup.
will be interesting to watch......oh, you mean football? Yeah, not so much.
The Big 10 has been dragged through the mud over the last few years about its performance in bowl games (mostly because OSU choked in 2 straight NC games).
It is time to make amends.
you are a better man than me. Although I take your point, the jury is out on whether I go for OSU and MSU.
MSU will get worked in their bowl game.
I honestly see them losing by 12+ in any matchup they're in. I also see Dantonio trying to pull a cute fake field goal based off of the movie the Sandlot and having his kicker unraveled like a baseball.
MOUSETRAP!! Take the CHEEEEEEEESE again!
Listening to this guy is painful. I would rather rock out to Josh Grobon and get all emo w/ my bff's.
You said they would get rocked by PSU
You could not understand prior to the season why they were getting sighted as a B10 dark horse.
If I remember correctly you guys managed to lose 3 Rose Bowls in that same time frame, so lets not act like this is a one way street.
Penn State and Illinois also got rolled in their Rose Bowls. OSU didn't even deserve to be in the title game in 2007, we just got really lucky.
I hate you and your rational thoughts!
do i know you?
haha yea, who is this?
Although I think your points are valid, if you talk to anyone outside of big ten country they point to tOSU's NC performances as why the big ten sucks. It wasn't until I moved into SEC territory that I started cheering for tOSU and the rest of our big ten rivals during bowl week.
any scenario where OSU can lose sounds good to me
but when it comes to bowl games, I'm all for any Big Ten victory. Yeah, I'll root for OSU and MSU during their bowl games, Big Ten is Big Ten. However, when it comes to ND, I just hope they get blown out.
I don't know, because of those SEC yokles chanting "SEC!, SEC!" after every damn win, ESPN and the media rode this conference strength bandwagon hardcore. Now, I have to root for Michigan and Penn State in bowl games because freaking Georgia fans, who haven't been relevant since the Herschel Walker days, act like they are better than us because they play in the SEC. "'Bama won the Natl. Title, they only beat us by 45 so the SEC is da best! O$U couldn't beat Vanderbilt if they played in the SEC! You're slow!" It sucks, but if it shuts up those morons, I'm "all in for Michigan".
Thanks. I like you keeping the integrity of the quotes too by even putting O$U.
I live in SEC territory and am sick of the Vandy would roll Wisconsin conference partisionship down here. I will be rooting all Big Ten teams in their bowl games.
You had me at "freaking Georgia fans". I'm in upstate SC and can't believe how obnoxious the fan base of a perennial 8-4 team could be...then again 8-4 in the SEC would be 19-0 in the big ten.
So I get it year round. Football is the SEC bumpkins. Then basketball brings out all the Carolina/Duke/Wake/etc PLUS the SEC folks... It gets annoying and is why I'm enjoying the ACC/Big-10 challenge a lot more these last 2 years...
I want Jimmy Harbaugh to kick the piss out of OSU, and not get hired as our coach because RR blew out Tennessee. Soooo many heads would explode.
yea exactly. Dantonio will go to 1-5 in bowls or w/e he is
And they're coach is such a d-bag.
I want every big ten team to win EXCEPT osu
edit: and msu
Nothing I would enjoy more than UM winning against an SEC team and MSU and OSU getting blown out... I will never root for MSU or OSU unless they're playing ND
But even in bowl games, I just can't do it for MSU and OSU.
Arkansas vs. OSU (Stanford higher ranked, but will they travel or have the name value?). Which could be pretty good for OSU, because their defense could give Mallett fits. Unless they cave at the sight of an SEC team.
Which would put Stanford up against VT in the Orange. Very winnable for Harbaugh.
Wisky/TCU intrigues me. Who can stop whose offense with their great defenses.
And MSU almost has to get Alabama. How do you pass on the defending National Champ vs. his old school, knowing most of the time they'll be BCS bound? I guess they could take LSU...and give Miles a shot at being 1-0 vs. OSU and MSU (geeze, if he had beat PSU last year...).
The Badgers would roll anyone short of Auburn & Oregon, imo.
ed: maybe a few others, such as 'Bama & Stanford, but not TCU...
But a month off, a trip to the Rose Bowl, all that weather and babes...strange things happen to B10 teams...and it's been awhile since Wisky's been out there. I mean, we scored some points on them. And TCU's defense is really good, so they could slow them down. I see Wisconsin being the lower ranked favorite, but not by more than a TD.
I ate six pancakes for breakfast.
Wrong thread.. Or What??
MSU will get stomped by SC, likely in the Capital One Bowl.
OSU's game could go either way because Pryor is still the QB. Last year's Rose Bowl was a decent performance, but as we've seen this year, he's been underwhelming against good competition. I see Mallett and Arkansas going Ben Chappell on them.
And I don't care about ND. So I guess consider that a toss-up game? Meh.
It's all speculation. We'll be able to have a much more informed discussion on Sunday night / Monday morning when we know the matchups. I guess I'm much more interested in Michigan's bowl game than any of these three teams' games.
Also, living in Ohio, I've learned that any win, no matter how expected, is a reason for Buckeyes fans to gloat. After the Eastern Michigan game, you would have thought that they just clinched a Rose Bowl berth and Jesus just committed to their 2012 class. I hate them.
Pity them, its more effective.
It was more effective before our seven-game losing streak to them. Now it's they who pity us.
How many big games did he not show up for?? And I hope Mallett doesn't go "Chappell" on him....he was down 38-0 to OSU before he put up the first of his 10 points.
Look, I don't like MSU, at all, but I don't know how you'd say they would get stomped by South Carolina.
I was hoping for Alabama and MSU in a "Pros vs Cons" matchup.
That would be Auburn. Cam Newton said so.
Jesus committed to our 2011 class, you are thinking of Zeus for 2012.
with his boring schemes. Its the defense that keeps osu in the hunt year in and year out.
Oops .... does Jesus play both ways ???
Go Blue 1
it doesn't really matter who choke-hio state plays. they dont know how to win a bowl game, every now and then they'll slip up and get lucky but that doesn't happen to often. I live in columbus and hope it'll be a big name school< like when they play florida in the national title gme a few years back, somebody made a "gator huntin" song all about beating the gators, who then humiliated the suckeyes! i hope it's a repeat of that scenario! Go Blue! F*ck OSU!
Please leave dumb nicknames like "choke-hio" at MLive and ESPN message boards. I really would like to think that we're better than that here at mgoblog and that we can express our disdain for a rivals in a more mature and less dumb fashion.
FWIW looks like ND to the Sun Bowl vs Miami (Catholics vs Convicts Huzzah!)... Maybe Maryland.
Auburn vs Oregon -- Championship
TCU vs Wisconsin -- Rose
UConn vs OU -- Fiesta
OSU vs Arkansas -- Sugar
Stanford vs VT -- Orange
Err I never left. But thanks!
PS: Those guys creep me the hell out.
As others have said ND is likely in the sun bowl against Miami. Still a slim chance the Champs sports bowl picks ND but they would be snubbing a 9 win WVU team
Is it better for OSU to win in a nice outing like the Rose Bowl last year? Maybe this will be the culmination TP needs and decides to go pro leaving the Buckeyes starting a freshman next year or whoever else they roll out there.
TP could have a career game and still not be an early draft QB. There are too many questions because of his inconsistency. Unfortunately for us and the rest of the Big Ten, a lot of people think Pryor looking decent at times is a function of the whole Big Ten being largely pathetic the last couple years. Until the perception of the Big Ten changes, Pryor won't get any early draft attention, unless someone wants a tall, athletic TE or something.
his Rose Bowl performance last year. It was one of his better games last year. Oh that's right, it was against the Pac 10 so nevermind. Hey doesn't that Harbaugh dude coach in that conference? Oh, never mind.
I would prefer to see UConn riding triumphant over OSU.
