So....no muppets for beating our most hated rival?

That Abbott & Costello bit always gets me...especially since the first time I ever heard it was when a couple of summer camp counselors did it back when I was in Jr High in the early 90s

Not to go all Lumburg on you, but I’m gonna have to disagree with you there.  Galloway is always on OSU’s jock and Herbie isn’t much better.  

Yes, he got run out of C’bus, but not because he was unbiased, but rather because he was let biased enough for the OSU faithful.  Don’t give him too much credit, he still parades his kids in their OSU jerseys and buckeye necklaces at every opportunity on Game Day.

11/06/2018 - 5:45pm Besides hotel rooms and…

Besides hotel rooms and tickets, the other thing to consider is making a reservation at one of the dining establishments around the stadium, as they fill up early and stay that way until about 40 minutes before kickoff (or as soon as people realize they’ll miss the kick if they sit down for dinner).  St Elmo’s (world famous cocktail sauce), Harry & Izzies (sister location to St Elmo’s), and Ruth Chris were all booked when I went to set a reservation, but I will be at Fogo de chao at 6pm so it worked out.

Even the Buckeyes don't have enough fans travel the 3 hrs for the game when they make it...the game never sells out.

I found a place on Airbnb after the MSU game a mile from the stadium...those are selling out fast too though...

11/06/2018 - 4:03pm Counterpoint:  I've gone to…

Counterpoint:  I've gone to every G1G Championship Game except last year when I sold my seats to my Buckeye fan boss.  The B1G Championship Game has never sold out, and that includes the several games OSU has played in, which also included games that were statement games to send the winner to the CFP (2014 OSU over Wisc, 2015 MSU over Iowa, 2016 PSU over Wisc & 2017 OSU over Wisc notwithstanding as both winners made as strong a case as any team could).

If you want to guarantee good seats and are willing to pay $200-$300 over face, just buy them off stubhub or some other 3rd party seller, or find a scalper in downtown Indy the day of the game.  The seats will be there and available.  If you just want to get in the door, you will be able to walk up to the stadium and buy them day of as well.

11/05/2018 - 5:37pm The main difference to me is…

The main difference to me is that OSU hasn’t really shown anything yet this season that makes you think they are truly a remarkable team, Andrew have shown 0 improvement game to game to make you think they have another’s gear they’ve can shift into if/when a close game is in question.

Meanwhile, UM has only looked better and better every game, and while they are a little prone to keeping the game closer that would be ideal, they have just been crushing people in the 2nd half.

Add these two things together and I’m as optimistic about The Game as I’ve been since 2011.

Nah...I’m taking the 14 points and LSU*...I’ll go with Bill Simmon’s advice and take the home dog only if I believe they can win outright...and since an LSU win is bad for UM (despite what Brian or anyone else believes), I’d say it’s almost guaranteed to happen.

*i don’t actually have any $$ on this

11/03/2018 - 8:36am After the MSU game, I’m…

After the MSU game, I’m convinced DB believes he can get pressure with 4 rushers tha can collapse the pocket, basically bull rushing the OL into the QB. That leaves no room for the QB to escape up the middle, and allows the LB/Viper to rush up and contain if the QB is able to break the pocket.

its the best of both worlds, takes away the quick throws by having the LBs playing underneath, but allows for coverage sacks/short scrambles if the DL doesn’t hit home with their pressure, which they have been successful at anyway.

I can think of several million reasons this take is correct and obvious

If you have a library card, the Overdrive app can let you “check out” audiobooks and e-reader versions of books from your local library.  Obviously dependent on your library partnering with Overdrive.  If they are though, you’ll have hundreds to choose from, though newer releases and super popular books like Harry Potter or A Song of Ice and Fire May have a waiting list.  I always check on Overdrive to see if a book I’ve heard about is available and get on the waiting list if it is.

I’ll be at that game this weekend.  I’ll put the bad juju on the Tigers...if it works I’ll be setting up a Go fund Me so everyone can donate to put me in the seats for any other big games that help out the Maize and Blue...

I’m sorry, but beating MSU and OSU in the same season en route to a B1G Championship is more than enough for me.  A CFP appearance/championship would only be gravy.

10/23/2018 - 4:06pm BPONE won't allow me to…

BPONE won't allow me to believe UM makes it to Indy unless OSU loses another game before UM plays them and UM beats PSU.  

If the only thing standing in the way of Indy is Rutgers on the road and IU at home, I believe UM gets it done.  If OSU is still standing in the way after Thanksgiving...BPONE

Iowa actually travels very well too...had no trouble selling 4 tix to Iowa fans in 2015....may have even made a little profit...

10/23/2018 - 10:46am Tickets on secondary markets…

Tickets on secondary markets will spike after a team clinches, but will fall as it gets closer to game day.  Plenty of people (myself included, 6 in hand already) renew or buy tickets when they are made available in July.  If/when many of those people who purchase have their team knocked out, they will put them out on the secondary market.  

But here's the rub...the B1G Championship Game has sold out a grand total of 0 times.  There are always tickets to be had at the door, so secondary market tickets will bottom out for face or even a little below by the time December 1 rolls around.  No guarantee of where you'll be sitting or how much you'll be paying, as the best seats do get scooped up as soon as a team clinches a division.  If you just want to get in, wait until game day and buy from the ticket office.  If you want good seats, be ready to buy them as soon as your team clinches the division.

Go Blue!

Fuck them both, I hope a meteor hits the stadium in EL and takes out both teams.  That being said, I just want UM to go to Indy, so if MSU beating OSU is what it takes, I’m down with that.

10/22/2018 - 4:58pm Actually, Iowa beating PSU…

Actually, Iowa beating PSU and winning the West would be better for UM (assuming they win) as a highly ranked opponent in the B1G Championship Game.  Better than beating Wisconsin again as they would likely be limping into that game based on tie-breakers.  Iowa's offense looks more coherent and in synch than Wisconsin's Taylor show, which they inexplicably abandoned last week in AA.  

If UM beats OSU in Columbus after rolling the rest of PSU, Indiana, and Rutgers it won't matter anyway, because if they win, they will have done everything they can by going undefeated in and winning the conference.  It honestly won't matter who they play in the Championship game, just being there would make 2018 a rousing success, and winning the Championship game would be icing on the cake, as would inclusion in the CFP.

I think there was some guy who once said "there is no game more important the game you're going down the tunnel to play today"

So...in that case, yes.  But in a more wholistic and correct sense...no.

I would have skipped the Center Ice package this year as well, but my 9 yr old  loves the game and I don’t want to squelch that, even if he’s cheering for Vegas instead.  My dad also uses my login, so it’s worth it because he also loves being able to turn on a random game every night.

i don’t think I watched more than 15 games last season, and I don’t expect to watch that many this year either.  :(

Whis hating on Harbaugh and Brown by saying this team is likely going 7-5?  UM is clearly not on the same level of PSU/OSU right now, will I doubt struggle on the road against MSU and can’t expect to be able to overcome a slow start against Wisconsin.  Harbaugh and Brown are good at their jobs, it just appears that Meyer/Dantonio/Franklin/Christ are all a little bit (or a lot) better right now.  

I don’t have any idea what the answer is for UM, but I’m pretty sure a new coaching staff definitely is not.

NW 24-20 :(

The Gaz disrupts enough to not allow any semblance of a consistent run game while pressuring Patterson on every drop back, making the passing game dink and dunk that never hits a big play.

UM D and Special Teams score the only UM TDs
