11/22/2016 - 5:14pm Do you really think OSU fans

Do you really think OSU fans go into places like AA or State College or even East Lansing and don't get the same treatment?  I have personally in each place, and I didn't bat an eye at all.  Y'all act like this is something that doesn't happen everywhere in a game that carries a lot of significance??  News flash: it does.   That's why I said I wouldn't bat an eye.  It's going to happen and if I get my panties in a bunch everytime I'd be in far too many scuffles.  I don't condone it unless it's in good fun -- but I guess I also have thicker skin than some of you who get upset when they hear the F word. 

11/22/2016 - 3:43pm Wear your thick skin.  Be

Wear your thick skin.  Be polite, but poke back when you can tell the banter is in good fun.  If you're tailgating beforehand befriend a few OSU fans on the way in and let them know this is your first time to the stadium.  Enjoy! 

11/22/2016 - 3:38pm When did they cheat? 

When did they cheat?  Tattoos/money for memorabilia is cheating only when you apply rules that are pointless to any rational thinker.  I understand that rules are rules regardless of their validity, but.... "c'mon man"!

11/22/2016 - 3:29pm Now, I know you can't say

Now, I know you can't say that ("worst damn band") and mean it, but I'm sure the phrase TBITL gets old in your parts.   No need for your approval, UMProud.   Carry on!

Now that's what I would expect in return.   With respect. 

11/22/2016 - 3:23pm Where did I say I say it

Where did I say I say it every day?  Where did I say I scream it to complete strangers?  Did you miss the part where I put it in context? 

Apparently you have a glass jaw... can't take a soft jab. 

11/22/2016 - 2:25pm it's a shame

As a Columbus, OH native and OSU alum, if this story is even partially true (though I believe it to be fact) I APOLOGIZE.  Yes, Woody Hayes has ingrained a particular hatred for TTUN, but I can assure you that outside of the actual lines of the game, respect was his message.  Now, the reasons behind why he so mercilessly despised TTUN and painted them in the manner he did hold plenty of merit -- and yes, fans do take on that persona -- but regardless, that is no excuse for this kind of treatment.  If your story ended before the physical abuse and beer in the face, and you were just thrown off by the rude "Fuck Michigan" slurs thrown your way, I wouldn't really bat an eye... I still say it today, and I'll say it right now:  Fuck Michigan.  However, that isn't a slur towards any one of you individually, your players individually, or your university individually.  That's a slur towards the combination that makes your "team" a rival of our "team".  And there's plenty of Michigan fans that show up at our tailgate who are greeted first with a, "hey, thanks for making the trip, welcome..." and second with a, "oh, by the way, Fuck Michigan... now, help yourself".  I hope MOST of you get the treatment I'm used to giving.  It should be in good fun!  May the best team win, Saturday. 

 

Also: for every asshole there's 100 good, solid people out there.  Thank you for being one of those 100 on that night.
