That Torg guy handing out popcorn for the 3:00 show.
Instead of waiting for the MGoCorrespondents, you could just listen online yourself...
I'll be listening on my computer from my office which is only about a mile away from campus. If I hear a loud groan and a clap of thunder I might just pack my stuff up and head home to sit on my patio and watch people of Columbus run into traffic.
Thanks. This Internet thing continues to impress.
He's probably just going to say that SI is coming out with another article on OSU in a couple of weeks, which has been the rumor.
Dohrmann said on the Dan Patrick Show last week that he had "more." It's not a rumor; it's just a matter of when he gets the article finished. Dohrmann was interviewed on a podcast by Gregg Doyle and a cohort, and said that every investigative article he does for SI has to go through multiple "fact-checkers," and that it takes a lot of time for the process to unfold.
I would be impressed if Torg actually had sources and they told him what the article was going to cover. I'm quite tempted to click the link and listen to a bunch of idiots from Columbus for awhile, but I think I'll continue listening to my favorite "concert anniversary" show: GD/ABB 6/10/73 Washington DC. I attended that show, and as much as I like to see and hear Brutus suffer, the best show I ever attended trumps Buckeye Schadenfreude.
Besides, the important parts will be on mgoblog in no time.
"the news won't make buckeye fans jump off a bridge yet, but will make them pick out their clothes for the event.."
I believe "the event" refers to the funeral for OSU football.
I believe it means that this Torg guy is an attention whore.
Him and The Common Man are actually pretty good about the whole OSU thing. They throw Tressel under the bus quite often. I was surprised when I started listening to them and they were so unbiased.
You can tell they're absolutely fans, and at times they try to justify to no end, but for the most part they dish out crap to the people that should be getting it.
From what I hear about the Michigan radio guys, Common Man and the Torg are light years ahead of them in terms of quality radio. These guys are genuinely funny, and are probably the best sports guys I've heard. I actually look forward to listening to them on the ride home.
On a side note, I got to meet Gordon Gee yesterday. I bartend on campus, and he was at our bar. Just my cool guy moment.
What bar? I live down in Victorian Village but occasionally make my way up there.
I would imagine he has been drinking heavily for the last month or so. What kind of tip did he leave? That tells a lot about a person.
It's Charlie Bear... the big 1,000 person capacity meat market in the South Campus Gateway. I've worked all around Columbus, though. Charlie Bear, Lucky's, Skye Bar, Frog Bear, Old Bag of Nails.
Gordon Gee only made a promo appearance, and he was out of there quickly. A lot of co-workers got pictures with him, but my spot in the bar gets busy quickly, so I had no such luck. I'm done at Charlie Bear for at least the summer though, as it clears out for the next few months. I may or may not be back next year, as I have a wife and an 18 month old, and gotta start growing up sooner or later.
Isn't Charlie Bear the old Skye Bar? My buddies and I always used to go in there on Friday at like 4 for their happy hour or $1 shooters and $1 Miller Lites....those were the days.
Tuesday night at Too's for $1 everything. Liquid dope night wednesday night. Pitchers at the Stube Thursday night. Friday and Saturday pick your poison, then 4 kegs Sunday night when it was actually kind of cool because there weren't any affliction or tapout shirts for $1 32oz mug night. Wow, I miss college.
However, the greatest happy hour I have ever been a part of occured at the old B Hamptons, I believe is was 2-9pm $1 everything.
I knew Jerome from 4 Kegs, and a bunch of people from B Hamp's. B Hamp's used to be a huge industry hangout. The owners are cool as hell too.
Yeah, it's at the old Skye Bar. I was a manager at Skye Bar for a long time. Odds are, we've met many times if you came in at 8pm. I was literally always there when it was Skye. The people who own it now are the same people who own B. Hamptons. They had a club in Columbus called Charlie Bear's Land of Dance in the early 70s. This is the second iteration. Charlie Bear has been pretty busy from the start. I got involved through a girl who used to bartend for me.
If you paid by card at the old Skye Bar, I'd probably recognize your name. If you paid cash, though, I most likely wouldn't...
Pretty sure he means they'll pick out the clothes they want to wear for the jumping-off-a-bridge event
Is there really that much picking out to do? Isn't the established Buckeye dress code a James Laurinaitis jersey and jeans?
Absolutely not true, my friend. Acceptable bottoms also include Jorts or their treasured relic pairs of Zubaz. And you can't rush a decision like that.
...because I had no idea what you were talking about.
I wish I hadn't.
...you mean demin shorts, then yes.
Well, they used to be jeans, until they were cut off.
That's a brilliant line. Basically saying, this news won't be the straw that breaks OSU's back and makes the fans want to kill themselves, but it will drive them to start preparing for it. It will make the death of OSU such an imminent reality, the fans will start planning what they're going to wear when they jump.
Pick out clothes for the event?
For what, a funeral?
Im selling mgopopcorn.
do you accept MGoPoints as payment?
No money but I could use some mgopoints, too bad the system doesnt allow it anymore.
Ok. Ok. I knew I should not have posted. Just forget it.. I'm just trying to tell you that that Torg radio guy is supposed to be dropping something pretty tasty today at 3:00.
What you posted was informative. I would listen to it at 3:00 if I could.
He's dropping Kate Beckinsale today at 3:00?
It's not like a member of the media would ever over-hype a story just to gain viewership/readership/listenership... would they?
I was thinking the same thing. I have a hunch he will just be referring to the SbB article since the Bucknuts can't read. Though you'd think they'd find the colors in the "pitchers" intriguing...
I offered my condolences.
The NCAA is not going to do anything more than maybe a three year ban and five years of probation. No big deal. That wont hurt us at all.
Auburn and Oregon are in the same boat and they played for the championship.
They cant take away our wins...well they can... but we still won the games and they cant take that away.
I told him I never thought things would be as bad as they turned out to be with the Fab 5, but hey keep walking on that sunny side of the street.
"I was there for that game, they can take it away but they can't make me unwatch it" line is absolute garbage. It's so funny to listen to how desperate they are to beat us, even still. It's like saying "I don't care how many penalty flags they threw, that touchdown will always count in my book." Except for the buckeyes it's like saying it for every game they played under Tressel.
Ellerbee, and if Michigan had hired a competent coach (even a guy like Amaker) at the time, we would not have been in purgatory for 10 years.
I can't stop laughing.
Well whatever is going down, sportscenter has been saying this hour that some more allegations for Pryor and OSU may be coming out.
Stop saying this! You have posted that like 15 times in the past month, and you have started to become a troll.
Could not agree more. If he's right we will praise him...but as of now he's beating a dead horse. That is a ton of info that will have to come out in 2 months time.
Dogs and cats living together.
Yes....this man has no dick.
"Being right doesn't mean you aren't also being a pain in everyone's ass."
I've clicked on the link and am listening to the big show right now. Let me tell you, popcorn doesn't taste so good the second time around. These guys are unbelievable!! It's now the unidentified source's ( from the OTL report ) fault for Tressel and Pryor being ousted from Columbus. Idiots!!!
Not sure what you are talking about, they don't start until 3...
Edit: Nvm, didn't see that you said Big Show.
Right, I'm listening to the big show which is playing now. Just a little bored I guess.
as is Neft at night. Common guy and torg are okay, but the two shows surrounding them are so absolutely dreadful. They are homer apologists, who don't even know much about sports. I miss spiels and hooley. I wish they'd just play the scott van pelt show after the herd and only have one local show
ESPN now reporting that many players played golf on Talbots dime and reported to OSU possible violations as much as three years ago.
Just saw that also, it's coming up on OTL at 3.
After all this is over I probably won't eat popcorn again for 10 years.
Maybe not, but you will certainly have that rush of nostalgia anytime you smell it bringing you back to the months/years of schadenfreude you enjoyed as a Michigan fan.
Living in Boston I thought I had seen it all when it comes to bad sports radio but these guys on the Big Show are really boring. They can't even keep their callers awake. The last two nodded off before they got on the air.
Maybe the 9 other current players from the SI article?
http://tunein.com/search/?query=97.1+the+fan the link guys
Well it sounds like they are gonna make us wait.
Man what d-bags. I'll wait for the MGoCommunity to tell me.
He's playing games on the air. You'd think interest/ratings would spike if they mentioned what it was early and allowed everyone to panic/call in.
I imagine a bunch of people are listening until he gives his info. So milking it isn't the worst idea ratings-wise. Also, it's an opportunity to screw with ESPN and other media outlets, which I'd imagine is rather fun.
Two minutes into their show and all I hear is more denial. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
Best line so far? "Michael Bibby is a tuuurd."
At least OTL isn't making us wait like Torg. Reporting on the golf outings Talbott took Pryor, Posey, and others out on.
These guys are serious douchebuckets.
I disagree. These guys aren't too bad honestly.
Double Post...delete please
Sports by Brooks will be on 104.5 The Zone some time this hour talking about the latest. He's been on several times before and usually has great insight into future allegations. 97.1 in Columbus is dragging it out.
Brooks just said "schadenfreude".
So funny that he worked that in, as often as it's used on MGoBoards.
Brooks makes it sound as if he has the smoking gun in a safebox at his house
He should have marketed MGoPopCorn a long time ago. Sales would be booming.
Would it be similar to this?
Is it some sort of FCC by-law that bad sports talk radio with hack hosts has to be on 97.1 ?
Latest from SbB shows a link between "Dirty" Dennis Talbott and another memorabilia company that set up tsiO signings for a group tied to Wexler, which would seem to indicate that a trustee may of had knowledge of all of this as well.
Wow... weak... "I can get you that truck for cheap?" to Jon Gruden?
during this next segment..
These guys are so full of shit
The "big news" that was going to drive bucknuts to drink and jump off a bridge - is a TV show with Jon Gruden?
youve got to be kidding me
The "new Pryor info" they've been promising throughout the first hour is just some deal rumored to be in the works involving Jon Gruden and Terrelle Pryor doing a show together.
[s] In other news, Jon Gruden reportedly considers the OSU position his "dream job" and is rumored to be a serious candidate to replace Tressel. [/s]
This is not the story....it's that Dohrman is coming back and ESPN has another new story. It has nothing to do with Gruden. Your false reporting is as bad as theirs.
now theyre saying SI/Dohrmann is coming back to C-Bus, and ESPN is still there working on another story
begging them to leave, lol
ESPN is working on a new story and so is Doerman (spelling?).
Given the ongoing drip-drip, why would it be that the NCAA investigators left town a week ago? That's what Gee said, anyway. So either he's totally full of shit (which he is) or the NCAA isn't on the ball (which might also be true), right?
It's not exactly a long trip between Indianapolis and Columbus. Just because they left doesn't mean they can't come back.
I just hope none of the crazies in Columbus decide to act on any of the threats they have been making. I can't imagine Dohrmann being very welcome anywhere in Columbus right now.
It's almost like the radio station is trying to hinder the investigation...
Columbus would burn from the Clarett escapade as well, just keep that in mind.
