And most glad to see you not being dead and all that. Or, if you actually ARE dead, glad to see you found somebody who sure writes like you and ghosted them your user name and password. That was smart of you but expected, you probably being a ghost and whatnot.

Take any NBA game you want and watch it all the way through and show me even ONE oher player who kicks outward like that following a shot, rebound, time out, ect.
There's one dude in the NBA who repeatidly kicks other players (accidently of course) and that's Draymond Green. The good news is that the officials are now on to his act so he cant get away with it anymore.

The first kicker in recorded history to have kick declared no good because it was too HIGH over the goalposts.
And both of those refs that game in 74 were from Columbus too BTW......
|7 hours 12 min ago||Neutral field||
I can assure you that OSU would rather play Alabama, in Tuscaloosa,,wearing jerseys that read "Bear Bryant was a gay child molester" than play us again this year on a neutral field with neutral officials.

And have been fucking with Michigan as long as I can remember....
|9 hours 4 min ago||Nope not me. One reason I||
Nope not me. One reason I have a lot of points is because I don't waste them negging others unless it's a really bad post.
Read further down the thread. I may make fun of them but I think somebody else is REALLY bothered by PosBangs.
|12 hours 11 min ago||Memeber when we could hours,||
Memeber when we could hours, sometimes even days between Posbangs?
|19 hours 9 min ago||So how long Steven?||
So how long Steven? Indefinitely? If Red said "I want to coach until I'm 90 you'd be ok with that"?
|22 hours 37 min ago||He was the QB here in||
He was the QB here in Cleveland for a bit. I remember his wife was smokin' hot and he seemed to be a really good dude. I was NOT bummed when he left here. As far as Drevno goes, I think this opening is well beneath his ability and his pay grade

He could've passed away. I know this sounds nuts but as somebody who's on the wrong side on an actuary table for life expectancy I have asked my wife to post something here should I go suddenly.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Um||
Sadly no it isnt.

Had very cool avatar logos if I remember. You just dont see that everyday....avatar logos. Very rare indeed.
Just a small number of posters with those.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Bullshit he is||
I"d have remembered him.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Well maybe||
If the story breaking right now regarding him pushing a player with a concussion back to practice ahead of protocol is correct that is NOT good. And my guess would be if that is true there is probably more stuff happening like that we havent heard about yet.
Great coach but if he did make a kid run 6 miles while still in concussion protocol I get why the University had to do something. Especially if others were about to go public with stories like that as well.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Bingo||
Actually OP the foul shot disparity IS the reason we lost. But not because the officials tilted the field - it's because we dont take the ball to the basket and instead rely on jump shots.
No issue at all with the refs last night. Big issue with our style of play IMO.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Money quote||
"Protected flagships in the Big Ten did especially well with officials, the research shows. Ohio State, the conference’s most competitive flagship team in the years Brymer studied, was 14 percent less likely to be dinged for a discretionary foul than, say, Purdue, a non-flagship team with little chance of contending for a national title. The Buckeyes fared even better with refs in 2014, when it made the first-ever formal playoff and won the national championship on Jan. 12, 2015."

Swing by 22901 Millcreek Blvd here in Beachwood, Ohio and say hello. I will be happy to introduce you to about 20 OSU fans who think the game was called very fairly and we are just being poor losers.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Well maybe it should be deleted||
And this is from one of the more vocal "we got robbed" posters here. If you read the article there's absolutely nothing new in there. He says "new information has come to light" but in reality, everything he posted on his site was posted here by Monday afternoon.
I would love something actually new. But what he posted is old news IMO.

Guy: "I'm leaving you. I don't want to be with you anymore. I'm not happy."
Girl: "That's fine. You can leave me and I'll allow you to date Jessica, Susan and Vicky. You may not date Jennifer, Samantha or Vanessa however."
Guy: "Shit. I really wanted to date Jennifer. Oh well, I guess I'll stay here with you then."
I mean how fucked up is it that the party being left can determine where the unhappy party that's leaving can go?
|2 days 4 hours ago||Well here in Cleveland||
Three reactions - everytime - when I bring up how badly we got fucked over:
1. "The spot was good - he made the first down". Then they'll show me the badly photoshopped overhead pic of the stop. When I point out there were a jillion bad calls up that one and that their pic was faked they shrug their shoulders and say "but he made it".
2. "Calls went both ways on Saturday. Quit your bitching - you got some calls and we got some calls. No game is officiated perfectly" When I ask them to point out to me the bad calls that went against OSU there is dead silence. And so far nobody and I mean nobody here has been able to show me one after I show them about 100 that fellow posters have put up here over the past several days (thanks guys).
3. BUCKS WON. HAR-HAR-HAR! BUCKS WON. BUCKS WON! O.H....... This is my personal favorite. No mention of the calls, no acknowledgement that our complaints might be valid, just....that.
One interesting nuggest is that of the about 20 or so people I've spoken to here since Saturday not ONE knew the background of the officiating crew. Not one. And the Ohio sports guys I follow on Twitter dismiss it as some sort of Michigan "tin foil hat" concept. If you guys think people know that there were two OSU fanboys reffing that game you're wrong. They don't.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Iowa reaction vs OSU||
For the record you saw none of the reaction after the Iowa game you saw after OSU. We lost that game, fair and square, and as upset as Harbaugh must've been - he never said a word about the officiating.
Like Pope Landro said - nobody likes feeling their playing in a rigged game. Unless you're Ohio State that is and the rig is on your side. Then it's perfectly ok.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Thanks for an actual "rational" response||
User name checks out!
|2 days 6 hours ago||Sure glad you kids figured that one out||
BTW - if you really a "Rational Buckeye" you would agree that your team, through no fault of theirs by the way, benefited greatly from an officiating crew that probably worked on the O-H/I-O thing during commericial breaks.
For the record, I dont hold the Buckeyes responsible for the officiating gift, you guys had no control over who was selected. What drives me nuts is when I show my OSU friends here clip after clip after clip of us getting hosed and show them the background (they never know) of the two guys responsible, the reaction is always one of three things:
1. The spot was good - he made the first down (no mention of the other 372 bad calls)
2. Calls went both ways. You got the benefit of some and we got the benefit of some (but they can never show me any clips or reference any plays where we got the benefit)
3. HAR, HAR HAR. GO BUCKS! YOU LOST. GO BUCKS!
|2 days 6 hours ago||Harbaugh is just like Bo||
Neither suffered fools gladly and Bo would let both officials and his own players know when they made errors and like Harbaugh, the more egregios the error the more Bo lost it. Go watch a clip of him melting down in his last game as a coach when the crooked PAC10 ref stole the Rose Bowl from him. No different than what you saw with Harbaugh on Saturday.
As far as the B!G goes I've said and I'm going to keep saying it. All Harbaugh would have to do is ask the media ONE question and then it would be off to the races on an investigation.
"Why were those particular officials selected for the game last Saturday and under what criteria where they selected?"
There HAS to a system in place - what is it? And if the B1G just followed whatever system they normally use this whole thing gets put to bed fast. It's only if there's a system in place and they didnt follow it (for some odd reason) that this thing gets ugly.
Based on last night my strong suspecision is that Harbaugh, our Athletic Department and maybe even this blog itself has been warned to cool it on the officiating talk and let things run their course.
|2 days 7 hours ago||As a Michigan fan||
My guess is you would do well matched up against the Dallas Cowboys if you could bring that same officiating crew to the game.
|2 days 7 hours ago||2008 Sugar Bowl||
Undefeated and high scoring Hawaii meets, at the time of the game, #5 ranked and two loss Georga. Hawaii was the last undefeated team in the country and the national narrative was they were going to show the world that a team from outside the established conferences (more than five back then) could play with the big boys if just given a chance. Georgia, by the way, was in the same basic situation we're in this year in that they strongly felt they should be playing in the Championship game and thought they got boned out of it.
Score was 41-10 and it wasnt that close. Georgia basically felt sorry for them and stopped pummelling the Rainbow Warriors and I fear the exact same thing would happen to Western if they get matched up against somebody in the top 10.

Now he's got a whole bunch of Michigan fans thinking he's our savior....
