Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

Hilariously the photo in OP's post is cited as coming from here in the first place.
I think this was already posted pre-NSD
I see from the beginning of the schedule that Ohio is also going back to playing "those teams that barely survive in D1 football but still almost beat us every year and yet somehow don't damage our SOS enough to keep us out of BCS games."
Just like they don't like 'Ohio' I don't like that 'school up north'.
Think they will react to my being offended?
"school up north" refers to MSU, not Michigan. Thanks to Dantonio, they have become a national power. I mean didn't you know, that for the 3rd straight year... they have picked up the top player in the State? Ohio knows were the threat comes from, and it's not Michigan.
...offended by, "That team up north?" Maybe we should change, "That," to, "The," herein declaring ourselves, "THE TEAM up north."
blue skies are blue
Does this add to the Hokelore? The best Urban could come up with is copying something Brady already did? Reminds me of that stupid script ohio tradition they couldn't come up with on their own.
I think you need a refresher on OSU-UM history. Do you remember Woody Hayes?
Maybe a punch to the throat would refresh his memory.
cHoke and flinstHoke? Wow, these people are reallly desperate
I LOLed at flinstHoke, and not for the reason they intended. That is a pitiful excuse for a snarky nickname.
Tell me more...
That was Woody's line. Come up with something original, if you can.
I know its a wrong thread but I saw that michigan is trying to get another o lineman and suggested dan gibbs? any info?
It seems like a compliment to us and put-down to sparty and all other teams north of Ohio. I like this title for us.
Slippery when wet
In three years max (citing family or medical reasons again). Mark it down.
Urban Hates Us 2:
More points for this guy stat!
Wow tough schedule there
Eight games at home, and the four on the road are all winnable (two are "sure-things"). Not in Urban's wildest dreams could he have come up with a more favorable rookie season as TSIO's head
grifter swindler cheat tattoo booster coach.
You guys realize it's almost exactly like our schedule this past year?
Warmup game against .500 level MAC school: Western for us, Miami for them
Then there's games against middling BCS level teams: ND for us, Cal for them
2 games against .500 level teams again: SDSU and EMU for us, UCF and UAB for them
Then Conference play starts and the first road game is MSU, plus Nebraska at home. We both play Purdue at home, plus a disaster Big Ten game (Minny and IU respectively). We both play Illinois, they have Wisconsin over Iowa, and next year's Penn State will probably be worse than NW was last year
However, the Mandels and Fordes of the world will be fawning over the first year record of Urban the Great without really considering too carefully how that record came to be. Book it.
Urban is going to find out how fickel TSIO's fan base is, regardless of whether he "gets" the rivalry. If I were him, I'd keep the rooms in his new house painted in neutral colors so he can get it on the market quickly when the time comes.
how original of them
Rich Rod just got fired....fuck
OT: Seen this on BTN website pretty cool. cant make my own topic so threw it in here.
Bringing back Woody Hayes to Ohio tradition is awesome. Woody Hayes is the Anti-Bo. Just because the douche nozzles from Ohio don't understand why the tradition is great doesn't mean we can't have respectful disdain for them. They hate us and we love the tradition of them hating us. Do you think Woody would have put up with getting caught cheating? The answer is no. He would have found the source of the leak and punched them right in the mouth. "That team up north" and "because I couldn't go for three" is the antithesis of Michigan’s " The Team, The Team, The Team" and "Those who stay will be champions".
For some reason I have a feeling that deep down Urban Meyer is impartial, and that Ohia is just his employer and nothing more.
The man had a clause in his contracts that would free him from them if the HC positions at ND, OSU, or guess who opened up. They may be damned good coaches, but he and Saban are mercenaries; nothing more, nothing less.
Absolutely. And I think in a way that is okay. As long as the coach is professional and he does his job well, then fine. But it's funny to see the fans who worship him like he's the next Woody Hayes. Plus, with no emotional attachment or loyalty to the program... bad things can possibly happen. Possibly
I have "distain" for this whole string. Really, the ohio guy doesn't like us? Suck on THAT, Woodward/Bernstein!!
I will use F7 for spell check next time if it pleases your highness.
I'm confused. Why is aratman answering as if he was the OP?
Every new coach has to come in and pander to his fan base. I think it is an almost pitiful attempt to replicate what Tressel did when he moved his travelling salvation show from Youngstown. Hoke's version of pandering was to query the assembled media, then look at them with disdain and announce "this is Michigan, fergodsakes".
Call me old-fashioned, but drop the stupid nicknames for the schools and call them what they are. Ohio State. Michigan. The whole Ohio, scUM, whatever moniker of the day is really really tacky and juvenile, IMO. Respect your enemy. Beat them on the fucking field, not in some HAR HAR bEaT tHe $uckeye$ war of unintelligible babytalk. From the outside, scUM, TSUN and Ohio just seems really stupid .
Again, just my opinion. Anyone else feel that way?
can you try to equivocate "Ohio" with "$uckeye$"?? Does referring to Michigan State simply as "State" draw similar ire from you?
eh, State's fine. But the point behind Ohio is to belittle/compare to the Ohio Bobcats, etc. It's just kinda useless, IMO. $uckeye$ was an extreme example. Doesn't detract from my original statement and point. Call your opponent what they are... Michigan/UM. . . Ohio State/OSU
waiting on you,
I don't really see how that is insulting or even original. You would think that he could come up with something better, after all he is supposed to be the savior of ohio.
How about that Urban coming in and getting right around Michigan in recruiting? Wow...not looking good for Big Blue !!
I wish I could down vote you, but for some reason I have lost the power to do so.
