PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
Bad, bad, bad sign
the kiss of death.
bad sign. Funny though....
On sorta of a similar note, I really hope that if we win on Saturday that we really go after Mark May and Jim Rome who both seem to go out of their way to hate on Ohio State. We all know how much we loathe May but Rome also takes it to another level. On Tuesday, he went after us for 10 minutes straight which included two segments on the Navy game and Pryor's Vick comments. And this was the second college football news behind Miami/Florida St. after a weekend that included Oklahoma losing and last year's Heisman winner going down injured! He finished off the rest of the episode advertising the week's guest speakers which included Pete Carroll and Lendale White. Talk about biased! This is nationally televised!
Sorry for the long winded rant, but there are a lot of newscasters who deserve a heaping pile of crow should we win on Saturday.
Guys, it means absolutely nothing. A "bad sign" would be Tress opening up with two straight Power plays and then passing on third down.
i think that actually might be a good sign. Get the USC defense comfortable, then start running some pass plays and stuff out of the same formation
True. I guess it all depends on how good/bad those Power plays look and how effective our O-line is.
I think it's a very bad sign for Lue that his skin has turned that deep a color of red.
It was a great speech. Hope the Buckeyes were listening.
All of the speeches in the world won't help your Suckeyes. We will be boarding our awesome plane tomorrow and arrive in Columbus to put a beatdown on Tressel. The fans will be asking for Cooper to come back as Coach when I finally call off the dogs.
I heard Mark May at halftime say we would win by 3 TD's. It'll be more like 5 TD's.
Good luck with that frosh QB ----. Your DEF gonna need it....That is all.
enjoy the NFL Pete -- which is where you'll be once the NCAA investigation of all the players you've paid (Reggie Bush anyone?) finally gets going. those guys on Yahoo Sports aren't letting it go. eventually you'll pay, er, USC will pay with probation and lost schollies.
The best sign is I'm going to the game. Got to love Lou he is a buckeye at heart.
We don't need luck BuckeyeSki. Don't plan on having a party afterwards. We are the party crashers.
good thing they're already on the plane retard
and for the record, he was the #1 reciever on the opposing team for my fantasy football league this week...got like 20 pts for the opponet by himself alone...and I STILL fist pumped everytime he made a play....my roots run deep
I cant really be mad at jim rome because i remember when he came here for the 1 vs. 2 michigan game he loved it.. looked like a kid in a candy shop. His M.O. is always to take extreme angles, he'll do what he does.. Mark may is a certified buckeye hater, and rides the trojans like a magnum
It's a good sign. Period. Seriously, the guy beat USC while he was at Ohio State, he NEVER LOST TO USC while he was at Notre Dame, he beats USC just by schooling Mark May every time they debate...Lou Holtz is a legend, and it's always good to have him as a fan, and as someone who wants you to do well. He's one of us, dammit...he's one of Woody's.
He coached the D in 1968, rallied them after getting down 10-0 early in that Rose Bowl!
Don't waste your time going. Scalp you tickets to the USC fans that will enjoy them. They'll gladly pay you below ticket value.
Thaddeus Maximus will make Matt "Chubby" Barkley our party favor....but after the game, I'm sure you will go back to being a Lakers fan.....enjoy the game, we will....
He's a fossil. He rambled on incoherently for 3 minutes.
More like a LifeStyles....his opinon is free for a reason
Sure Rome is pro USC, he is from LA. But he had Archie on and was tremendously respectful to him. Mark May just seems like an OSU hater, Rome is more of a USC fan that remembers the OSU vs USC Rose Bowls from the 70's and 80's.
I said you guys will lose by 3 TD'S tonight and I was being generous when I said that.
This ---- is why we should have registered users BTW....you know he is the same one that is posting as Pete Carroll...check the ISP#
I heard May asks for the micro mini Trojans at the drugstore
I'd gladly shove my size 14 up their ass before and after Ohio State rolls them in the shoe'.
I'd rather have my balls slammed in a car door then sell my tickets to a USC fan.
Hope you picked up beanie he is going to be a beast this year.
You also said Nevada was going to beat Notre Dame.
Me too. Sucked.
May really makes me ashamed to be a Pitt alum.
Did I ruffle your panties Buckeye Ski?? Quit being so over sensitive. If your Buckeyes prove that they are contenders, then they will win the game. If not, the Big Eleven will lose their automatic BCS bid...LOLOLOLOL!!!
The only way to shut Pete Carroll and Mark May up is for OSU to come out Saturday night and dominate.
BuckeyeSki: Why are you so worried about what other people have to say on here? How many "haters" do you think post on message boards??? Too many.
Hell, you're probably one of those"fans" that actually want Tressel fired and have Cooper brought back in to coach this team.
anyone know where to find that video of the pep talk?
I'm sure someone has put it on Youtube.
I loved it. Lou is exactly right, they gotta do what they gotta do.
I loved how he refeered to them as the University of Spoiled Children.
I doubt USC could ever fill a stadium the size of the shoe.
anyone else sitting around or in 26 aa?
Sadly, had him and his 19 pts on my bench this week.
I dont' care what he said about Ohio State, I just think Rome is unwatchable and his radio show is awful. All of these callers with prepared smack that they typed up the day before they call in. STUPID, I frankly don't care what he has to say about anything. Mark May is hater. Back in 2002-2003 when the Buckeyes won 19 in a row or whatever the tally came up to. He picked them to lose every week. Then when they finally did in Madison he was like told you. Well yeah, if I say Florida is going to lose every week, eventually they'll lose. More than that though, he's awful at breaking down games and picking winners. Lou Holtz at least is entertaining to watch. May has no personality either. I don't know why he has a job on ESPN.
You know, I almost benched Santonio and thought, let's give him one week and see. I also picked up Beanie in like the 9th round, taking all kinds of shit for starting him. I said trust me, remember Adrian Peterson his rookie year? Beanie is going to be nasty.
They'll never lose the BCS bid. The Fan bases are to huge. The Alumni of PSU, OSU, and Michigan alone have people spread all over the US. Despite what ESPN says, the Big 10 is super popular. That's why everyone hates on them, there's a big 10 fan in everyone's office.
RedBull & Vodka brings out the hate in me....LOL Im re-reading from last night and laughing at all of this actually
Good thing because if you get riled up over a couple of non Buckeye fans posting on here, then you have some serious issues.
I am wondering if OSU does win what the excuses will be from May and Rome? USC started a frosh QB, or defensive injuries or will they give OSU credit for the win?
Registered users and point caste system...needed. Examples be errywhere.
Lou's speech was great. I love Lou Holtz. Remember, he's one of us. Although born in WV, he grew up in East Liverpool and went to Kent State-one of my old weekend stomping grounds as a teen.
Anyway, Lou's speech was nothing like a Tim Tebow speech. I wonder if we could get TT for a pregame pep talk?
Even if we can't, Tressel just needs to ask himself, "What would Tim Tebow do?" If he can someone tap into Tim Tebow's awesome powers, he'll no doubt come up with the perfect game plan.
Maybe we just need a pregame prayer. Something like, "We come to you today Tim Tebow and ask that you be with us in our time of need. Help us to play mistake-free football and play to the best of our abilities as we respectfully dismantle our opponent. We thank you, o lord, Tim Tebow. In Tim Tebow's name we pray. Amen."
Yeah, that should do it.
*someone* somehow, that is.
I loved Coach Lou's pep talk. I'd also like to hear another from Fake Lou (The Fan).
I don't think any number of victories can shut-up mark may (he's paid to do what he does), but he can be tuned-out. I haven't actually heard him speak in over a year. Of course, that usually means I also miss the commercial announcements that follow. I had to watch Lou's pep talk after-the-fact.
Great speech! I am ready to play.
We're exploring it. The anonymous drivebys are getting to be too much for even us.
Can you make it a little more like Yardbarker.com? You still have the mulitple ID problem there but it is limited.
We're actually looking at IntenseDebate, which was recently acquired by Auttomatic, the company that owns Wordpress.
Must be registered to comment, moderation system, etc.
Nothing is finalized yet, but we are looking around at alternatives to make things better around here.
I just wanna say that if OSU wins then they will get credit for the win, but it won't really be as much as if they had one last year when the defense was the best in the country. I hope USC wins but I accept that there is a possibility that they will lose and if they do I won't be a sore loser. All I have to say is that I have more doubts about Pryor than USC as a whole, maybe I haven't seen enough to judge (most likely) but OSU's d-line doesn't seem that impressive to me so unless the d-line dominates USC then USC will most likely win. Stop the run at USC and you'll have a much better chance of winning.
No that was Trev Alberts, Thank you come again.
"if they do, I won't be a sore loser."
Seems you already covered that by trying to minimize a win over you guys. Since you don't rebuild "you reload," don't pull the excuse card out.
They could never fill up the Coliseum in the 90s when USC stunk up L.A. The Trojans have the most fakest fan base in America. With the exception of the Miami Hurricanes or Free Shoes University Criminoles.
The Eastern Sports Propaganda Network hates the Big 10 because we created our own network, and they are the "gods" of sports and no one is supposed to question their authority. Hence, they have lost millions to the Big Ten Network. GOOD!!!!
ESPN is facing no competition whatsoever from the BTN anytime soon.
He picked ND to play in the NC game, so...........
to be the favorite in the NC game
Great sign. Lou unretired from his pep talks just for us. Beautiful symmetry, really. We got it locked up, BABY!!1
Uh, Tonio is 3 syllables by itself. If you're the sharpest knife in the buckeye drawer that's a bad sign.
Lou Holtz is a blithering idiot...one step away from drooling and urinating on himself on national TV. I've always had respect for the Buckeyes, and I've never liked USC, but after reading the retardation coming from this board I don't know which is worse, vain or stupid.
That loss is 1000% Tressel's fault. He lets every team hang around. He will never be an offensive coorinator. He can recuit, but so could Cooper. Get ready for 9 or 10 win seasons as long as Tressel is there. He turns world class atheletes in to mediocre players. I can't blame his star players for leaving early. I wouldn't hang around for that offensive nightmare. What a looser!
