or the group I fall in
"We are going to score 70pts per game with this offense"
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Your soul||
A little bit of your soul goes along with every ticket you sell to an OSU fan. Seriously, too much red. I hope the OSU fans I know just look over this. Do not want to hear it from them.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Herbstreit is still talking shit||
Calling for Shaw. Talking like he is trying to put a bull's eye on him.
Shame, shame Herbstreit.
WE BELIEVE! CLAP! CLAP! WE BELIEVE! CLAP! CLAP!

|5 years 14 weeks ago||Per "The Game" hype video||
"Its the person who's willing to die for that inch who wins."
Brandon Minor - RAGE - fits that better than any player, ever. If he isn't dead, he'll go. The crowd's eruption when they see him make his way on the field is going to blow up my TV's speakers....
WE BELIEVE! (clap, clap) WE BELIEVE! (clap, clap)
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Can't help it||
I watched the 2009 preview video for the 1000th time this morning.....this time felt just like the first. It was complete with a slight tear. If you can't get UP for this game, check for a toe tag.
WE BELIEVE (Clap, Clap) WE BELIEVE (Clap, Clap)
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Sorry, but.......||
that's like seeing your child waiving your handgun...Dangerous!
"Put it down.....give it back to daddy, please.......good boy."
|5 years 15 weeks ago||A trick play = .....||
Any time we line Denard up in the backfield with Tate and....wait for it.....do NOT run Denard! It is super crazy 'n all, but it might full someone. Hopefully 11 someones.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||I like the classic Southpark tune||
|5 years 15 weeks ago||I would give up||
your left nut too. There it is. We have ourselves a sacrificial testical. And may the Michigan Safety-Linebacker-Other Cornerback-General Defense-Hating gods look the other way for 1 game.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||The moral of this story...||
1. A statement like "my friend who is a tOSU fan" is oxymoronic. Most tOSU fans want you to think the sky is falling. To them, Michigan misery is sweet music. The are not to be trusted.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Kovacs||
Well, Kovacs did get a pick......I wanted him to run more than anyone.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||Wildcat||
occasional wildcat formations would be an awesome way to get their talents on the field. Also, lining one up in the backfield and one at slot with one at QB(duh). would open up alot of unique plays, maybe even trickery 'n such. I expect to see T-Force and D-Rob on the field at the same time plenty this week. And, SUPRISE, with D-rob on the field we run play action and hit JR DEEP for a TD. What? we didn't run with D-Rob on the field?? OSU's safeties would be all to focused on D-Rob.
As a matter of fact, put D-Rob in the backfield with T-Force on the first play. Don't waste time setting up the long ball by giving it to D-Rob, and later go deep. We have already set it up by doing it all season long. Go deep on play 1 and catch their safeties salivating at the thought of chasing D-Rob. Hemmingway in for 6.
|5 years 15 weeks ago||We Win||
That is it, we win! That may take a TE out of the game, it may force Scotty T. to make fast decisions (interceptions), it may cause BG to break Clay's ankle....oh, yes!!
Prediction: D.Warren and, yes I'm gonna say it, Kovacs with a pick-6 each! BG with 4 sacks. Death Roh with 2 sacks. Brown with Clay on the ground fianlly planting him there in the 2nd quarter.
Just 3 more beers to game-time
|5 years 15 weeks ago||I like simple, too||
Pretty cool to see it simple like that. The visits are HEAVY on the D side of the ball for the OSU game. Do you think the recruits will say, "I have to come here, they really need me" if we have a bad defensive show? Or, will it be more like, "I don't want to be a part of that?"
Hopefully we just win, and nothing else matters (think Metallica's "Unforgiven")
|5 years 16 weeks ago||Hate, it grows strong with this one.....||
I can't hold back anymore. Seriously, the hook-n-ladder in 08, the onside kick in 09, Danny Hope and his retarded mustache f@#king with OUR Rich Rod, and now the biggest drum. Where is my dog? Must...kick....something.....but I liked that cat, oh well.
The way I see it, any or all of the following things needs to happen:
1 - Rich Rod sends Jay Hopson to North Korea to obtain nuclear arms. Brings them back. Goes to Purdue. Now we have a true Big Ten again.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||Why we play the games||
We were BAD last year. Can I get someone to agree? Thank You. We still managed to beat Wisconsin (their first loss). Can we do it again. Data, if I could cram it for you, would say NO. But, last year's data would lead to NO as well. So, how did we win? Well, it's like this.
IT JUST HAPPENED
That is why, as they say, we play the games.
BTW, who knows which OSU team will show up? I mean, it will be the rivalry game, but they are not consistent. Although "popular belief" is that we roll over and die the next 2 weeks, I want to see.....
IT JUST HAPPEN...TWICE
|5 years 17 weeks ago||Big Bird||
Really, what is RR's beef with Big Bird?
|5 years 17 weeks ago||3 and 0||
imdwalrus had it right. We did beat Wiscy in our worst season EVER. I don't kow how else to qualify a win except with just that. Purdue, well, at least it is a home game and I want to see some payback for that damn hook-&-ladder bullshit from last year. I remember that one play above all else, well except for the Toledo interception. And, OSU, well they did lose their kicker and the backup is horrible. Although, they didn't really need a kicker last year.....yeah.....but...it too is at home and I hate them. Everybody steals and I stole Terrel Pryor's ability to pass more than 5 yards downfield.
We finish 3-0!!(8-4)
But if not, whatever,
GO BLUE TO THE CORE!
|5 years 18 weeks ago||I am a retail guy||
So I will likely have to work for every Michigan/OSU game on the Saturday following Black Friday. I am going to have to break down and fork over the extra $10/month for the DVR receiver. Oh, and probably no more parties like I am used to as well.
Such is life......
|5 years 18 weeks ago||Put Them In||
I agree to get them both in there at the same time. With Odoms(healthy) and Denard in at the slots, Jr and Matthews (Stonum) in at wideouts that would slow the pressure down.
Denard can prove he is a threat catching the ball. As a D, you would have to respect Denard's feet if he can prove to catch the bubble screen or a jail-break. Then, the dominos fall; pressure eases up on tate; Tate has more time to READ the field; receivers have more time to complete/run routes; Tate makes better throws; Run game opens up with fewer bodies in the box; MINOR RAGE; then back to Denard on the bubble. Minor and Denard (not throwing) need to get 15 - 20 touches per game.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||that lunch may get us a win||
Maybe, at that lunch, Lloyd gave Rich a few tidbits on ol Joe Pa. Lloyd did own him, and this win would be a huge step forward for the program. Of course I read all the bits on how the two, Rich & Lloyd, may not get along.....but what if they did? Lloyd may have just turned the table in our favor vs PSU this weekend.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||please be kind...||
I really want no change, but.....
How about if WE left.....lose tons of Big Ten Tradition which would put me in tears. I am also not sure I would like the bowl situation, either. But,
What other positives and/or negatives are there??
|5 years 19 weeks ago||Ahhhhh, yes||
|5 years 20 weeks ago||Pryor is looking awkward||
Pryor is looking just uncomfortable and a little awkward. I give credit to the WR on the TD pass. The coverage was good and it was purely WR vs DB for the ball. TP just got it close enough. And, I love this; the Boo-Birds were out in Columbus. It seemed to be a combination of bad TP play and bad play calling on that particular drive.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Least impressive||
I think a blackout is possibly the least impressive of all the _outs. Especially for a night game. I remember watching a South Carolina game where they did the blackout. It was a night game. The aerial shots showed that the stadium looked the same inside and out. So, Iowa, go ahead and do your blackout. It is a night game. We won't see you and will pretend you aren't even there.
Can we play this game in the middle of the forest and have a fatigue-out instead?
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Deadliest football team?||
You should team up with the computer programmer on the old Spike show "The Deadliest Warrior." Sounds like your data could fit into his program and could attempt to predict a winner. His system could run the simulation of a game 1000 times (just like on the show) and predict the winner based on total win percentage. Of course, you would have to account for all sorts of things like Pass Offense A vs Pass Defense B and account for Pass Defense B's ability to perform based on season data. But, you are the math guy, I'm sure you'd be all over that. I am looking forward to seeing all your posts. Please keep linking your explanations for those of us, ok just me, who might have to read really slow to understand all the #s.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||He has OSU fans envying us..||
Tate is Impressive, PERIOD! I live and work in Columbus with, of course, tons of OSU fans. I have heard from many that they would love to be able to trade Forcier for Pryor. To invoke QB envy in your #1 rival when they got the super QB prospect just one year earlier, yeah, Tate is the MAN!!
I think that Tate also is able to impact your perception because he is in the most prominent position on the field. Hart was impressive, too. Early....yes. But my vote would go to Tate. The dude is unflappable.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Their offense is not awesome||
But, If our offense can't overcome their defensive strengths, their offense will get more shots at us. We got a little bit of luck against MSU by holdig them to only 20 points in regulation. But, I belive that Iowa's O is better than that given the same opportunities we gave MSU. Our offense has to act like the first minutes of the 1st quarter are like the final minutes of the 4th quarter. Go down the field unyielding and with desire.
|5 years 21 weeks ago||Premium sites worth it?||
With the consistent thoughts about the premium site's databases among other issues I have heard, I have to wonder if they are worth it. I have never subscribed to one, and nothing I have heard here leads me to pursue a subscription. Are any of the premium sites worth it? If so, in what ways would I benefit?
