The one thing you're missing is that people who get wasted enough to keep their buzz going all through the game end up too drunk to even attend. That kind of thing happened constantly, and Hoover Street was packed with people trying to give away last-minute tickets because their friends passed out when I was in school.
As Don pointed out, drunk/disorderly conduct at major league events has gotten so bad, they're starting to separate crowds and institute new rules. I don't get this idea that everything's fine and dandy when the booze flows in the stadium.

Your opinion is crappy and divorced from reality.
|15 hours 16 min ago||whut||
Pocket passers aren't automatically "game managers." Chad Henne certainly wasn't one; he had to become our offense on occassions when Hart was hurt or not finding room. Insert Inigo Montoya meme here.
|17 hours 43 min ago||WHAT||
Voltron started a POSBANG thread? You owe me a new irony meter.
|2 days 11 hours ago||5 is bullshit||
Yeah, a true freshman who didn't enroll early barely got playing time, while two seniors playing for a staff that very obviously favors upperclassmen got plenty of snaps.
The coaches constantly talk about Darboh (and did in 2013 as well) and he was clearly favored in the scrimmage. The rest of your points are between meh and reasonable, but 5 is just nuts.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Seconded||
Chesson's crazy aggressive and takes dudes on like he's five times their size. Watching him play makes me want to hit people, too.
|2 days 13 hours ago||haha||
Yeah, part of me thought that.
Of course, WD's routine involves White Castle and presumably a giant deuce, and I can't imagine why anyone would do such a thing.
I kind of hope WD makes it to Michigan. He'd probably be a great tailgater.
|2 days 14 hours ago||It's a style thing||
In 2011, the team debuted the SHORYUKEN pass defense. Mattison appears to stress that staying in the receiver's shirt, faceguarding, and swatting at the hands are of more importance than going for the INT.
Also, if you think Peppers had any chance to defend that fade, you're fooling yourself. The execution was pretty much perfect. Some plays, when done correctly, are virtually indefensible.

That undershirt pattern is only slightly less hideous than an AJ McCarron tattoo. The pregame locker room will be filled with bleeding eyes.
|3 days 14 hours ago||I like him||
He's much more soft-spoken than I expected.
I've always been a fan of his playing style. He hasn't gotten much time, but he's an excellent tackler, especially for his size, and he's always aggressive and plays with effort.

I've often wondered what it felt like to be a Domer over the past few years, getting Tated, Denarded, and then Gardner'd.
I guess part of my skepticism stems from the fact that our QB will do far more damage with his legs than theirs.
|4 days 14 hours ago||haha||
Everett Golson is not Troy Smith. He's a very, very poor man's version. The Braxton Millers of the world are far scarier in my eyes.
7.6 Yards per Attempt isn't exactly impressive, either.
I'm just not that worried about Golson. I don't find him to be all that special.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Good question||
But he only has 94 rushing attempts listed, so if those also include the 18(ish) sacks, that's barely 6 carries per game.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Jury's out?||
Whut? They've been held out "until the investigation is complete" and they'll likely be dismissed. They're not even practicing. I think it's safe to say they'll all miss time.
Golson is NOT Donovan McNabb. He ran for 3.2 yards per carry last year with a long of 27. He's mobile, but he's neither swift nor all that nimble.
Jalen Smith and Sheldon Day are the only real threats on defense.

I always enjoy being reduced to a cartoon character based on a few posts on a sports blog. You don't know us and you have no clue what we do or do not enjoy. You seem to think we all have one-track minds like you and can only enjoy or contemplate one thing at a time.
What I'm trying to say is that you're a fucking idiot.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Lots of misdirection||
Given the personnel, the "run with the ones" concept is an incomplete picture. I'm unsure if anyone saw a snapshot of the August 30th starting lineup yesterday.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Read his other posts||
There's enough material for about a hundred Inigo Montoya memes.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Another reading fail||
I didn't say this, either! I was talking SPECIFICALLY about '68 and '69, because you brought them up! Why can't you follow this?
Also, 1969 is significant not because of '68, but because OSU was expected to drop an A-bomb on us and it was the beginning of the Ten Year War.
They won't be the WORST THING EVER, so your point is moot once again. There's also a massive difference between "refusing to schedule" a team and actively seeking out a PR nightmare.
There's something wrong with you. I don't even know how to address this. You just don't listen to anything and don't understand whatsoever where we're coming from.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Holy shit||
Word games? Properly using words and concepts is now "word games?"
You CAN both maintain that this game was a poor decision while still supporting Michigan, because those positions are barely related, let alone mutually exclusive. I really don't understand why this is so hard for you to grasp.
Who said they won't watch? Bando bitches constantly, but he'll be watching. I'll be watching. What's your obsession with misrepresenting people?
|5 days 8 hours ago||Fundamental differences||
I'm pretty sure you're the only poster who feels the way you do. There's just a fundamental difference in how we feel about sports, it seems.
Correct, you can't erase the record. That's exactly what we're saying. What's so hard about this to understand? Also, you've now just admitted that wins DO NOT "purge" losses.
I wasn't born until 20 years down the road and didn't give a shit about Michigan football until 18 years afterward, but that loss is still in the record book. Also, getting beaten by an obviously superior opponent doesn't sting very much, but playing the heroic underdog is the sweetest feeling in sports. You're not comparing similar ideas.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Money||
We're paying them exorbitant amounts of money, which is how all punching bags get scheduled. This is also their first year in FBS, and no one "licks their chops" to play an FCS school any more.
|5 days 9 hours ago||Learn how to read||
I didn't say that anywhere, though I do hold that position. Also, "this is a bad idea" is not the same thing as "let's back out of this game" because the "bad idea" part has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the actual football being played. You don't seem to understand this.
I personally would like it if you understood dichotomies (those options aren't mutually exclusive or even related), but that's not likely to happen.
|5 days 9 hours ago||whut?||
I didn't say that. Nobody said anything like that. In fact, your entire post is filled with responses to things nobody said. And then your last bit, where you do actually respond to something I said, is a non sequitur.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Heh||
Keep grinding that ax.
|5 days 10 hours ago||/wanking motion||
I'm pretty sure the Mountaineers couldn't give less of a shit about us. We're playing them because we're paying them lots and lots of money. It's not like they requested this game, dipshit.
Put a lid on the melodrama. Winning at football doesn't make your dick bigger. You've added nothing of value to this discussion.

This would only be true if EVERYONE were complicit. If offenders continuously get caught, it only means that at least part of the whole is functional. The culture that breeds the offenses still exists.
