At that point NOBODY CARED!!!

Wait,  I thought we decided who are rivals are based on which teams we lose to?  You know because "we can't beat our rivals."  If we beat them, then by definition they couldn't have been very good and are no longer rival-worthy.

Most years, Ohio State loses one game that they shouldn't.  I'd just as soon it be us.

10/14/2018 - 1:55pm They were able to play like…

They were able to play like that only against our back-up D.  That's why they call it "garbage time."

Section 20.  Mostly over 40 crowd; we stood most of the game and we were loud and boisterous and didn't have too many early departures.  We're always pretty rowdy--I expect to stand unless it's a blow out.

That storm destroyed southern Ohio where I live. No power for 2 weeks.  People in Houston (where the eye went through) had power before we did.

Same.  Which is why it galls me to hear people whine when they have a hot shower and flushable toilets.

10/12/2018 - 4:57pm That 2016 game score was…

That 2016 game score was closer than the actual game.  I was there and never felt like we were going to lose.

Selfishness?? Explain?

10/11/2018 - 6:00pm No, they're moving it…

No, they're moving it because UM kept winning it in that location.  He can't have that!

This thread made me snort lemonade out of my nose!  That hurt!

10/10/2018 - 1:17pm But we all know Harbaugh can…

But we all know Harbaugh can't beat his rivals/ranked teams/ranked teams on the road (not at a neutral site) big games/ranked teams on the road at night when there's a full moon... /s

 The goalposts on these narratives keep moving.  JH is better off putting his head down and just going to work.  I can see the progress since he arrived.  We will get there...

10/09/2018 - 8:55pm In my darker moments last…

In my darker moments last year I was wondering if we should move him BACK to QB...  But seriously, I doubt that Harbaugh moved him to TE because he was short on TEs and had too many QBs.  He looked at his skill set and physique and his football brain told him "perfect TE..."

10/09/2018 - 8:36pm MSU has also never been able…

MSU has also never been able to recruit at the level of OSU and (good quality) UM and PSU teams. They don't have the national name recognition (in football at least.)  I don't know if his scheme is outdated or not, but I suspect if you took OSU or Bama's players and ran Dantonio's scheme it would work just fine.

10/09/2018 - 7:41pm "In his mind, Michigan can…

"In his mind, Michigan can never have beaten a good team, because if Michigan can beat them, they're a bad team..."

That sounds like a lot of Michigan fans, including some on this blog, TBH

10/09/2018 - 7:20pm I like this one!

I like this one!

By October 20th though?

That's one kind of cyst.  I'm assuming his are in the brain. (not being sarcastic)

10/08/2018 - 9:12pm I was unfamiliar with the…

I was unfamiliar with the Lizzy Seeberg case, so I googled it.  Absolutely sickening.  This scenario just keeps getting played out over and over again on multiple college campuses and it seems nothing changes.  I've never had a great feeling about Brian Kelly-- nothing I could put my finger on, just that his purple fits along the sidelines were ridiculous--  I guess my gut was correct.

IMO nothing about campus rape changes until university police no longer have jurisdiction over it (and other serious crimes.)  They don't have the expertise and there is a pretty strong conflict of interest.

That is one of the longest sentences I have read in a while--

Stress can exacerbate any health condition.  Maybe this indicates he has a tiny bit of a conscience.  Or conversely the stress could be that he is furious that he got ANY kind of a punishment.  The jury is out.

10/07/2018 - 9:11pm I thought Kenny Allen missed…

I thought Kenny Allen missed too, and the back up (whose name escapes me...) missed the third.  That game gave me heartburn, though I never felt like we were going to lose.

 

EDIT: Thank you Wild...

Pretty sure that guy was sitting behind me at the game yesterday.

10/06/2018 - 10:26pm There's a certain subset of…

There's a certain subset of our fanbase who seem to think teams are good until we beat them-- then all of a sudden they aren't.  It's like they think, "Well we beat them so they can't possibly be any good."  Talk about "glass half-empty"!

10/06/2018 - 10:23pm That's the point you're…

That's the point you're missing.  Maryland isn't a bottom feeder.  They are a solid team that we beat soundly. 

10/05/2018 - 5:54pm Considering the appalling…

Considering the appalling lack of character of some of the other B1G coaches, I'm fine with Pat Fitzgerald's exuberant antics, though I might feel less magnanimous if we had actually lost.

10/04/2018 - 9:46pm "Have a nice day."  Love it.

"Have a nice day."  Love it.

My teacher brain is imploding on itself right about now.

10/03/2018 - 12:21am So then the free training…

So then the free training they get becomes even more important.

10/03/2018 - 12:18am "Done more with less?"  He…

"Done more with less?"  He has recruited very well, so I'm not sure what you're talking about there.  In fact that is his greatest strength.  Also hired some good coordinators. I don't think he is in anyway a great football mind.  I don't think he's better than Harbaugh.

10/03/2018 - 12:04am The value of the athletic…

The value of the athletic training that these students get is always left out of the equation when we talk about paying student athletes.  Most are not pro-ready when coming out of high school, and need their coaches to help them get to the next level.  IMO, the NFL/NBA should allow the few super talented individuals to go pro right away; the rest can enter college and get the free training that is offered by being a student athlete.  I think they should have to stay a certain length of time (more than one year) if they do enter college.

10/02/2018 - 7:51pm Animals eating each other,…

Animals eating each other, specifically a red-tailed hawk eating a squirrel,  was the scene right outside of my classroom window yesterday.  I don't know what it does for football players, but it pretty much guarantees that 12 years will get nothing accomplished.

10/02/2018 - 7:41pm And we kicked the crap outta…

And we kicked the crap outta them the year before...and beat them soundly in their own house the year before that.  So...

He has become one of my favorite players, and not just due to his productiveness on the field. Love the personality he displays.

He has become one of my favorite players, and not just due to his productiveness on the field.

I heard all summer long how "night games on the road" are so tough, I was actually thinking that we should do this more often to opposing teams.

This makes the most sense to me.  

10/01/2018 - 6:02pm Just on the road?

Just on the road?

The goal for this game is the same for all the other games:win.

Fitzgerald is a decent human being, and there are far too few of them in the B1G these days.  (I would put Paul Chyst and of course Harbaugh in that category.  Not sure of who else...)

In consecutive weeks on the road...

I've watched the 2nd half twice now.  Except the phantom call on Higdon, it was enjoyable.

09/30/2018 - 3:21pm I just keep thinking that…

I just keep thinking that Harbaugh must have realllly pissed off the B1G refs his first year here and they haven't forgotten it.  No excuse though.  They should be better.

By "trolls" are you referring to those of us who live below the bridge?

It's the tone deafness that's the problem.  I get how they meant it-- and in 2016 it would never have been taken for anything but what was intended.  But since everything that happened this year, it WILL be taken out of context.  The PR people who thought of this SHOULD HAVE realized how the rest of the football world will take it and gone another direction.  The fact that they did it anyway leads us to believe that they are either 1)not too bright (I doubt that) 2) have already forgotten about it and think the rest of have too or 3) they just don't care about the possible image they are portraying.  

We're not so much offended as SURPRISED that they still don't understand how wrong this situation was and how poorly it was handled.

09/27/2018 - 5:13pm Meteor or Sinkhole, either…

Meteor or Sinkhole, either way CFB wins!

09/24/2018 - 10:18pm Agreed.  It might not be the…

Agreed.  It might not be the "silver bullet" Michigan needs to beat the Bucks, but losing him is not nothing.  

I'm not sorry that the Buckeyes are now a *slightly* weaker team, I am sorry for the kid.  It's a tough break, and sounds like a painful injury too boot.

Moms have a way of taking care of misbehavior, don't they?
