Rooting for OSU against Nebraska and MSU is the effect of being in separate divisions. It's painful. I hate that the Big Ten has diminished the rivalry while upping the MSU and creating the Nebraska rivalry.

I like them to be undefeated when Michigan plays them.
each and ever game they every play for the rest of creation.
I wish they were in our division. Dave Brandon will not be forgiven for that one.
Agreed. I can't find it in me to root for OSU
im surprised you dont have more Durps for this post...I always want Ohio to lose....ALWAYS!!!
I must have missed when Dave Brandon got promoted to Big Ten Commissioner.
my +1 is with you in spirit.
Michigan will have to beat these teams anyway if they want to win the division and conference. I will always root against OSU.
Yea I agree what does it matter who wins in this game? We play them both in the end. I personally would rather see Michigan St. win because they got beat by Notre Dame and we play them first.
Thank you. There is never a reason to root for tsio. Who cares if Sparty beats them. We still have to beat Sparty for ourselves and if we do it won't matter.
ya know, unless we only lose 1 B1G and and MSU loses 2.
It helps us more for state to lose so Im pulling for Ohio, but whoever loses Im excited they lost.
I feel dirty
To hell with OSU.
I'm not rooting for OSU. We can beat MSU ourselves, we don't need Ohio to do it for us.
I hate rooting for them too, but that's why I'm not going to.
OSU's offense is so bad
And Braxton Miller sucking makes it even more bitter sweet. I love seeing him look like an idiot and stop short of the boundaries to get cracked, but I want MSU to lose and because he sucks, I'm not sure OSU can put up even a TD.
You don't have to root for tsio. You can root for MSU to lose. It's not really the same thing, if you think about it carefully.
I was thinking about who I should root for in this one and I was thinking OSU for most of the week. Then I decided I couldn't do it. I figure I only need to root for Michigan to win the conference and not teams in our division to lose it. I'm hoping they both look terrible on the way to an OSU loss. OSU looks pretty one-dimensional and not impressive at all.
Im rooting for MSU to get decimated... but honest to god, with Braxton at the helm, and a "so-so" defense, OSU looks like us in 2008
But OT: Devastated may be what you meant, its a stupid pet peeve of mine. Decimated is to be reduced by 1/10th and historically was a self inflicted penalty by the Romans against their own legions to discourage cowardice while still leaving them 90% intact. If Dantonio suspended 5-10 players as a punishment for infractions then the team would be decimated.
The day I'm satisfied by an OSU win, I'll need everyone on this blog to hunt me down and beat me. Mercilessly.
I always root for Sparty as long as they aren't playing us. That's the least I can do for the little brother.
until they started putting up billboards. Now I can't root for either of these teams.
I'm rooting for the team in black and white. IMO they are much tougher running around out there in no pads with two brutish neanderthalian teams with an IQ lower than a glue sniffing dung beetle.
GO REFS!!! FLAG THE SHIT OUT OF THEM!!!
I'm rooting for an act of God.
Well Braxton Miller passed for a first down, so there you go.
Just root for the little green John Deer gator cart.
Rooting? I don't even like watching this game. The offenses suck, and NOT because of the D's. State's uniforms are hideous, while the picture is so bad that ohio's scarlet looks like an even more hideous pink. The only thing more bland and colorless than the weather is the stadium, except for the truck drivers sitting in it. Hell, even the cheerleaders look like chewing gum on a sidewalk.
If they are hideous now, wait until the Michigan game and they break out those nike pro combat rags.
Just think, who would Bo root for? No way in hell would he root for OSU. Not even if somehow them winning sent Michigan to the Rose Bowl.
Never, ever, ever root for OSU!
I'm sorry but if it somehow resulted in Michigan going to the Rose Bowl, Bo absolutely would root for OSU. Bo was all about what was best for the team. Only guys like Dantonio root against their rival in spite of his own team.
No way I could EVER root for TSIO even if its against Sparty.
I guess I'm pulling for an MSU loss.
This is probably the worst OSU team in 15 years
That would be my status for the OSU-MSU game. Realizing that an MSU loss helps us, but at the same time, being unable to bring myself to support the Buckeyes lest the MGoGods strike me down and put my alumni association card in the MGoShredder.
root for OHIO -- NEVER!
you are rooting for the Ohio bobcat mascot to go WWF on brutus.
Why the hell didn't ohio decline that penalty and take 4th down?
Since both teams cannot lose this game, root for tUoOS... With the vest gone, Dantonio is now the biggest douchebag in the B1G.
What about Bret Bielma hanging 83 on Indiana?
Yeah... and his manipulation of that kick off rule a couple of years back. Brett is not someone I would want coaching my son, but that hardly rises to the assholery of Dantonio.
Inferior coaching...to bad its only going to be for the interim.
Actually now that I think about it, I'm rooting for sloppy, mistake filled play on both sides that diminishes the confidence of the coaches and players.
It's good to see you have your priorities straight.
Den(n)ard just had an interception :-)
Never going to root for OSU
