Eh, I'm sticking with the switch from nike to Adidas as the primary factor in our fall from grace with the football gods.

Not sure why the nfl ever went away from the unique logos for each Super Bowl.

Really? Green day and Coldplay are the "rock" artists you point to here???

And no mention that we are without a top 5 player in the country?? Who the hell are these writers?
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Haha I didn't say he was God||
Haha I didn't say he was God like. Who's tellin you that? Just like anyone else on this board I prefer brady. But hey after bein dumped by Indy and the way Peytons come back from the neck surgeries the guy deserves it.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Go Peyton||
I was torn today because obviously TMFB!... But as a sports fan how can you not love Peyton and want him to get a ring? So now it's real easy to root for Peyton after Sherman's class act. /s. Is he from Ohio by any chance? Go broncos.

I'm with ya. I can't stop replaying it over and over in my head... Even with the same play I wonder if he just waited a second longer if Gallon would of gotten open. Also think about if he tucked it in and run to the left it looked like he might have been able to get in himself. Rollout, maybe an option pass/run play.. Can't get it outta my head.

That game yesterday took a lot out of me. I'm still replaying the 2 point conversion over and over in my head.. picturing Devin rolling out, or running it in himself. Hell I even had an option play run through my mind. Either way, you can definitely see some bright spots with this team and with the coaching. I'm glad to see that Hoke knows exactly what this game means. He brought his boys to play today. Next year, well damn, I'm really sick of always thinking about next year after watching a loss to OSU. Its been a really rough decade in this rivalry. Its time to go on a winning streak of our own because I can't take much more of this, I give up! I reallly hope Hoke is the guy.

oh man.. it still haunts me too. Who was the lineman that hit him?
|1 year 13 weeks ago||^This. That game yesterday||
^This. That game yesterday took a lot out of me.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||I'm definitely proud of the||
I'm definitely proud of the outmanned team and how we played too. I just can't believe how bad we've been dominated in the past 10-15 years. I keep replaying the 2 point conversion in my head. So close to beating them!! I can't stand being underdogs every year in The Game. So I do understand some on this board who are very upset. I'm sure they are proud of the effort, we all watched the same game yesterday, but the frustrations presented here are in parallel with exactly what Brians and mine are. 9 losses in a decade?? I can say though that I do have some hope after yesterday as to how Hoke looks at this game. But I just can't stand losing to them anymore!!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||YES||
THIS ^. I'm sick of losing this game. We're always underdogs and 1 win in 10 years?? Not long before this rivalry loses its national acclaim if this continues. The past 50 years in "modern football era" OSU has edge.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Hindsight is 20/20.. You all||
Hindsight is 20/20.. You all would be ecstatic if we got the 2 point. I think that the play call sucked but the call to win it was the right call. Hard to trust Wile if it came down to FG's in OT.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Loved the call||
To go for it.. not the play call
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Weeelllllllllllll||
I am not optimistic at all. I say we lose 41-7. Its hard to even get up for this game anymore. Wish we could hold our end up these days. This season has taken a lot out of me. I wish we were as determined to win as those scrubs down south are every year.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I appreciate the OP's||
I appreciate the OP's optimism, but like others here, I see the same inconsistent team. Even with Ohio giving up 35 to Illinois, Meyer isn't gonna let that happen against us. On top of that, Devin is still all over the place and I don't feel confident in him at all. Was great to see Green and Smith get the workload out of the backfield today.. they deserve a legit shot at at this point. I would love to see what we can do with a new offensive staff. Anyway, the bottom line for me when it comes to Ohio is that when Brady was hired he said that Ohio was the most important game on the schedule. This sentiment is cleary echoed in every MIchigan fan's heart. It was great hearing those words after watching Tressel wipe the floor with Lloyd all those years and RR, well was RR. So what is Brady going to do to stay competitive with them? We look light years behind that team, and have been for years. I realize this is not all Hoke's fault, but he's in the fire now and its up to him to perform. Meyer is going to have a top 10 team every year down there. Its ashame what this rivalry has become the past 10 years. 1 win for us in 10 years? If Brady can't get it done it will be interesting to see how important The Game is to DB because this rivalry isn't going to be one for too much longer if we can only pull out one miracle every 10 years.

|1 year 16 weeks ago||Won't save the season||
It won't save the season, a win doesn't get us to the B1G title game. It would be nice though considering we've only won ONCE IN THE PAST 10 YEARS. The bigger question is, if this keeps up, when will this rivalry lose its national acclaim?
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Well I suppose thats a step||
Well I suppose thats a step in the right direction, but week after week blaming execution is blaming the players.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Accountability||
Hoke preaches of accountability, so where is his? When does failure to execute fall on the coaches?
|2 years 8 weeks ago||When will we know about||
When will we know about Devin's redshirt?? I thought he had gotten it???
|2 years 13 weeks ago||I'm the same way.. Charles||
I'm the same way.. Charles earned it by playing some offense and running back kicks as well. Te'o had a great year a LB.. to me there's no comparison and he isn't deserving.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||Ok yeah man clearly we have||
Ok yeah man clearly we have no control over it.. Sorry. I thought you'd understand what I meant about getting beat by ohio so much lately.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||It doesn't embarrass you as a||
It doesn't embarrass you as a fan that ohio has owned us this past decade?? No wins in the Snakepit in 12 yrs!! I wouldn't be as embarrassed if we only lost to them once every 2-3 years. I trust Hoke, I do.. he's recruitin his butt off..and I know I have to give him some more time, but its been a tough last decade against our archrival in "The Greatest Rivalry in Sports". IT IS embarrassing in a game that gets lots of national attention.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||That was my point.. I was||
That was my point.. I was agreeing with the comments i replied to.
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I hate the no headset look.||
I hate the no headset look. The only head coach in NCAA or NFL these days without one. Until we're about to lose a game with about 2 minutes left. I just don't get it!!
|2 years 14 weeks ago||I agree with paying special||
I agree with paying special attention to the Ohio game throughout the year. When asked about The Game last week a few times Hoke kept saying "It's a fun game to play in" I don't wanna hear that "Its fun" unless there's some other choice words said too. We all heard how Meyer treats The Game. Thats what i want for our side. I would like to see some more intensity and focus paid to beating Ohio. They've owned us this past decade and it's downright embarrassing. Maybe I'm jumpin' the gun on this because of our roster and it only being Hoke's 2nd yr. but this one really hurt.
