Semi-OT: OSU Commit Throws Down the "O" Gauntlet
I've been looking for a reason to hate Ohio State for years. Finally, I have it.
It took this long to find a reason to hate Ohio State? Where have you been.....
At least he won't be receiving a flood of death threats like if he'd trolled Ohio State.
He is wearing blue socks.
Ohio State recruits have to come to Michigan's camp to learn how to play football.
Except doing the "O" by itself makes you look like a ballerina. So there's that.
Yeah...and ballerinas who wear Nike flip-flops are going to have major, major foot problems later on in life. So take that, Tyler Green!
Is that what that is? I always thought it was supposed to be a toilet seat in honor of the stadium. You know, the kind in public bathrooms where the seat doesn't quite go all the way around the front.
I'm a fan of it. If this were a Michigan commit doing this at OSU we'd all be singing his praises. It doesn't seem like he was an asshole all day or whatever, after it was all done he decided to take a harmless picture repping the school he's going to play for.
In his defense, he ain't come here to play school.
In related news, here's a pic of his Mom showing her team spirit.
That's a bit below the belt.
And apparently a bit over your head. That's not really his mom, genius. It's a stock photo of an OSU fan that's been circulating for years.
The next pic shows him with Sally Struthers trying to get him a sandwhich.
Rich Rodriguez would have been all over this kid as a box safety, and I bet there are a number of people on this board who would be excited about him. He played corner last year and is listed at 6'3", 195 lbs. He's not an otherworldly athlete, but he's big and strong with decent speed. I don't really see him fitting what Michigan wants to do (which is perhaps one reason why they haven't offered, but he has decent skills.
Magnus throwin' it down!
he could have faced the other way next to the H and the I in the end zone and actually started to spell something.
Still, a bold move.
Move his o to the left of the ''I'' and start spelling OIHO.
OSU fans had their panties in a bunch over the Malzone tweet a week ago, now they think this is awesome. Meanwhile Michigan fans have no issue with either and think it adds to the rivalry.
"Fuck this kid" and "This kid must die" show that at least some Michigan fans have an issue with it. Ideally, of course, everyone on both sides would take your "Whatever...it's kids having fun" approach.
THE KID MUST DIE...or at least like loose The Game this year
so you can't edit, but "loose?" Really??
He was speaking from the perspective of the stupid fans who freak out over such meaningless gestures of rivalry.
Sorry to diminish your sense of superiority Kimosabe.
If so, then yeah my bad. But if you think that I'm trying to demonstrate any superiority over someone with regards to the difference between lose and loose, then you don't know me very well.
I flew into Seattle yesterday (of course I was wearing my 'Michigan Football' T-Shirt.. I ran into a guy wearing an Ohio State T-Shirt and, in light of Seattle being the home of Macklemore, I asked the Ohio State fan about his shirt:
"Pick that up at a thrift shop?"
There is no way that guy connected the dots from We're in Seattle ---> Macklemore's from Seattle ---> Macklemore dropped "Thrift Shop" ---> My reference to a stranger was clever.
Have to agree. Same reason why I didn't mind when Malzone said that it wouldn't be the last time he left Columbus happy a few weeks ago. I will start to worry when the fan bases and players stop doing these types of things to each other.
And it's the little things like this that make it so.
Well done young man.
And hopefully this is the last time you leave Ann Arbor this happy.
Hands on your head Steve Urkel. Your under arrest!
This is what you're supposed to do in a rivalry.
Think about how much it would suck if OSU decided their legitimate B1G football rival was Sparty and only did this kind of thing directed at them. I'm happy to still be considered relevant.
I can't wait until November 29th...when Michigan wins at the Toilet seat.
I have a good feeling about this year and yes I realize I have nothing to do with what happens on the field.
Who care's...F**k Ohio
Outside of a little land Ohio stole from Michigan there is no reason to actually hate Ohio. Oh how I Hate Ohio State is in fun, not a presumed life style choice. A kid commited to Ohio State reping his future school is exactly what should be done. Anyone remember Shane Morris in all Michigan gear while at an Ohio camp? Or how about the burning of an Ohio State recruiting letter? These things are not Khrushchev banging his shoe at the UN over American Imperialism. It is a kid with his hands over his head making the universal sign for A-hole.
If so, the convo nowadays would go... "You take it." "No, you take it." "No, YOU take it..." etc
This is a low level kid who was just looking for some attention that he didn’t get on the recruiting trail. I applaud him… because it definitely worked. He has the Ohio State and Michigan fan base now talking about him.
Though I don’t like some of our harshly negative comments. I’m sure his friends, family or OSU players have told him about this thread. He’s probably still visiting and reading the comments. Good one, kid. We’ll see you on the field.
Now win the game.
I would. I'd also sentence all users to prison.
As for the pic; huh, I bet UM is going to try to beat OSU now.
