Communist Football

Yeah I listened to this last night as well. A lot of hilarious and witty comments from pessimistic OSU fans. ("What should I drink while watching the game: beer, hard liquor, or bleach?") But also some good points about how OSU matches up well against Michigan's downhill running offense and Michigan's weakness with the short passing game.

Only partially through this, but it's a good listen.  Nice to hear Buckeye fans who are somewhat smart and self-deprecating instead of loutish.  I liked this one @ 6:45:

"I've only been watching Ohio State football for one weekend.  Can you explain what a 'stop' is on defense?"

"Yes, a 'stop' is when a defense allows up a touchdown in one play so that they can stop playing defense and then the ball goes back to the offense."

I liked at 16:00, when they're talking about holding things back for The Game


"How brilliant is Schiano for not unveiling the defense before The Game?...The big twist will be when Ohio State comes out against Michigan on Saturday and has a defense.

At this point the big Michigan wrinkle may be tackling, and discipline, being in the right place, filling the right gaps...ya know crazy stuff."

Did they just call Michigan Defense trash? OMG- hearing that really made me do a double take. I want to hear these guys on Monday rationalize The Game.
