Yup I live in Marysville and work in Columbus. I'm loving razzing my OSU friends about this stuff. I hope this all culminates in a big W for Michigan against OSU this year. That would make 2011 a VERY good year indeed.

Haha, small world, I ate there the first day on Tuesday. Had to wait in line for 45 minutes, WORTH IT.
On topic, the dealership they're talking about in Marysville could very well be the one that took over Nelson Lamborghini. The owner of that place is a huge OSU fan, and Marysville is just far enough from Columbus that most players probably wouldn't be recognized extremely easily by the other clients browsing for cars.

From the Bucknuts forums:
"What happens to the person that sold out the program? They must be somebody close, a compliance person, the person that came to Tress with the info on the players. Tressel must know who it is. My question is obviously this person if we find out who it is, is going to get all kinds of blame. Think Steve Bartman type treatment. Death threats and stuff like that. They will for certain have to move out of C-bus. Whistle blowers aren't usually treated kindly no matter what business they are in. So what happens to him/her? And if you were this person, would you have turned your program in? A program that you love?"
Classy OSUfan. You should see all the replies in support.

OSU doesn't have the stringent standards that Michigan has. They pretty much accept everyone.

Wow, you actually got them to say the word Michigan? Between them constantly having to remind themselves how to spell Ohio and them always referring to us as scUM or That State Up North, I was beginning to think that they didn't know how to pronounce Michigan.

Haha, that would have been sweet. I'm hoping that they tank next year and go to the Little Ceasar's bowl. I'd love some free pizza!
|5 years 35 weeks ago||I live just outside of||
I live just outside of Columbus, Ohio, I am forced to listen to the local sports talk stations everywhere I go. Every year someone buys me something that represents what bowl OSU is going to. This year I had a Rose on my desk at work, for a few years I got to enjoy some Tostitos Chips, was hoping for more of those this year lol.
I actually don't have a lot of bad things happen to me when I wear my Michigan stuff out, it's only around the Mich-OSU game that it becomes a little dicey wearing that stuff in public. Other than that it's mostly just friendly barbs traded with OSU fans that I know, people that don't know me rarely say anything to me when I have Michigan stuff on.

I would love to predict a win for our guys, but I just keep getting glimpses of BG breaking into the backfield and Pryor stepping up into a gaping hole in the middle and running for 50 yards over and over and over because our linebackers are out of position.......Please God let our defense just play fundamentally sound, if they do that we have every chance to win.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||The only problem I see with||
The only problem I see with trick plays is that most of them require TIME to develop. We rarely have time in the backfield to develop a simple deep route so I really don't see us trying a whole lot of "trick" plays. I do see, as someone else already said, us running 8-10 new plays and 1-2 new formations. If we don't, I will be a little disappointed considering you KNOW OSU will have new stuff to show on offense, they do it every year.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I kind of liked the formation||
I kind of liked the formation we lined up in on the first play at the beginning of the Wisconsin game, with both Denard and Tate in the backfield. I could see a lot of potential for that formation in this game.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I don't think I've ever, in||
I don't think I've ever, in my life thrown my hands up the air and screamed "WHAT THE FUCK" more times than this year with this defense. It's so difficult this year more than last because it's painfully obvious how much better we would be if we had a competent defense. I just hope it gets better and this is the "gets worse before it gets better" part.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||I don't see the harm with||
I don't see the harm with starting Denard. It's not like Tate is lighting the world on fire and I'd like to see what we have in Denard Robinson going into the future. Like has been said many times in this blog, if any of our QBs figure out how to run the read option correctly with good ball fakes, they'll be the clear cut starter. Maybe Denard's "light bulb" has lit up this week in practice and the coaches would like to see how he handles a start. Or....could just be a stupid internet rumor started by Forcier making a bad joke on Facebook.
|5 years 38 weeks ago||What baffles me is what||
What baffles me is what others have said. Why didn't the linesmen do anything? It's near impossible to miss most of that stuff, the linesmen are supposed to watch for off the ball stuff. That chick is crazy.....
I need her number.

This looks like a great analysis but looks like photobucket hates you..Can't wait to see the pictures to go with the comments.
