One of the all-time great misnomers. It's always freezing in El Paso at this time of year.

Simmons figured students would cease fire if he stepped out of the car and they saw a 68-year old retiree standing in front of them.

They stopped his car.

And everyone knows nobody's ever been injured by snow before.

There's not a person on here that would be OK with a mob of people throwing snowballs in the face of their mother, father, girlfriend, grandfather, etc.

I think they said this was the first time OSU played a game in the week following U-M since 1942.

...you just saw what I was talking about. The conditions favored the offense. In these icy conditions, the defense can't adjust once the offensive player makes a cut.The fact that the Lions offense couldn't take advantage is what people should be upset about, not that the defense folded.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Lions offense was pathetic today||
One measley TD.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I'm not that upset with the defense||
Aside from the obvious jobbing by the ref, once the blinding snow stopped, conditions clearly favored the offense. Once anyone on offense got up a head of steam, the defense was unable to make a cut or a turn to get in position to make a play. I'm more upset with the Lions offense that they weren't able to take advantage of the conditions.

That penalty is inexcusable. Just cost the Lions a full minute.

The Lions had them completely stopped and were gifted a new set of downs by arguably the worst roughing call in the history of organized football.

Lions got royally jobbed in this one.

Same reason the Lions have two kick return TDs. If you allow the runner to get up a head of steam, the defenders are unable to stop and turn in these conditions.

Playing a game directly after The Game was a new frontier for OSU. They hate Michigan so much (maybe more than we hate them) and gear up for Michigan so much, that they may have been psychologically and emotionally spent.
It will be interesting to see if OSU and/or Michigan continue to have problems in the game immediately following The Game.

I have no problem with the split.
If we're going to be locked into playing OSU every year, we want our division opponents to play them every year as well.

The real losers in this whole situation are Jim Delaney and the B1G. Delaney has to be steamed right now. Delaney had an opportunity to display some of that legendary leadership the B1G likes to crow about by suspending Hall for the title game. Instead, he chose to do nothing, only to see the whole thing blow up in his face. Not only did he show that when it comes to leadership, it's a matter of convenience in the B1G, but then to top it off, Hall didn't play anyway. Rough day for Jim yesterday.

Didn't he go out of his way to rehabilitate Aaron Hernandez with daily Bible study sessions that he conducted personally?
