So tired of watching those Michigan broken plays.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Michigan's defense is still weak.

Why the hell are people rooting for Michigan State? Do you have any idea how sweet it would be to beat an undefeated Michigan team (its possible..they dont play Wisky)

Use your common sense people. Think long run.

never bought into this logic. i want michigan to lose every game.

BuckeyeLurker0509's picture

Never understood that "logic"

It helps us to play a highly ranked Michigan team (well , normally..this year is an exception I suppose).

I want Michigan to lose every game, too.  Since they've been losing, the Michigan fans I know have been pretty low-key.  Once they start winning, they'll return to their stuck-up and haughty ways...bragging not just about their football team, but about their academics, too.  They're slime....the worst kind of slime...slime from Michigan.

But, we all have to admit that the Game is sh*tty when it's not a good contest between ranked teams.

Lately I have been running into Michigan fans that are a lot more hot headed and really they just don't seem as SMART as they used to be. Hoke wanted change but now the fans have become dumb, it seems. I never realized that "Buckeyes" had so many other alternatives (Suckeyes was the worst you used to hear). I don't like this NEW Michigan thing that seems to be going on. Their fans remind me of our drunk fans from the 80's and 90's. Being belligerent has become a way of life for TSUN's fans now, and it doesn't fit them or suit them well.

I don't think you have to worry about Michigan losing. The losses are coming and quick. D-Rob still CAN'T beat a good defense. Michigan will lose at least 4 down the stretch including their first loss today at MSU.

Normally I root for the Big-10, including TSUN, because I want the conference to be strong. Living in SEC country has that effect on you. These SEC fans are ridiculous...No more of that though. I hope Michigan never wins again. I always wanted the winner of The Game to be able to play for the national title. Those days are gone. I hope they never score another point.

Thanks, Urb!

I do not envy you living in SEC territory.  Not one bit!

madhatterhater's picture

I ve noticed a lot of "new" tsun fans walking the streets of the Dayton area!

go bucks

BuckeyeChief's picture

I've noticed the same in Va Beach...

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Colin's picture

Yeah but how sickening would it be to see a Michigan team in the top 10 just one year after Rich Rod.

BuckeyeLurker0509's picture

That doesnt really irk me much. *shrug*

madhatterhater's picture

Did everyone see the hard count on Worthy from MSU, that would have been nice a couple of weeks ago

Bucksfan's picture

There are a lot of things that would have been nice a couple of weeks ago.  Hell, there are a lot of things that would be nice today.

luckynewman13's picture

Do you think Shugarts would be able to handle the hard count?

njc2o's picture

sparty doing their best not to take control of this game

Buckeye Chuck's picture

I'm flipping back and forth between Sparty and Baylor/TA&M, which has the added advantage of Gus Johnson.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Bauserman + running ability + dreadlocks - shoelaces = Denard

Buckeyejason's picture

Michigan state is garbage..can't believe we lost to that shitty team.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Bucksfan's picture

Cincy just threw a pick-6 at the end of the half against Louisville.  Now down 16-7 for the Keg of Nails.

Buckeyejason's picture

Is Shaq Washington and Akise Teague plating for Cinci?

BUCKEYES BABY!

madhatterhater's picture

The wind is wicked up at MSU today, any word on Champaign?

go bucks

Baroclinicity's picture

Comparable wind there, perhaps a little less with gusts 25-30mph.  Will slack off to 10-15mph in the second half.

When you're holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

rampageripster's picture

Robison's throwing mechanics are just god awful.... this team is no different than last year

Cause I couldn't go for three

Buckeyejason's picture

I wouldn't say no different from last year..they struggled with everybody last year it seemed..this year not so much.

BUCKEYES BABY!

madhatterhater's picture

Wow you dont see a lot of holdings called, but two in one play is impressive.

go bucks

njc2o's picture

the big ten is awful

njc2o's picture

from Rittenberg.. yikes

 

Terrific throw from TerBush to O.J. Ross for Purdue touchdown, but Wiggs misses PAT. Penn State still leads 13-12. Wow.

madhatterhater's picture

Sparty being sparty.

go bucks

rampageripster's picture

stoping UM is simple... disciplined blitzing and matchup coverage... they can't do anything

Cause I couldn't go for three

madhatterhater's picture

I think TSUN has watched OSU too much, playing the lesser QB.

go bucks

njc2o's picture

we can beat this michigan team

rampageripster's picture

the only team we play this year that I don't/didn't think we can/could beat is Wisconsin... we were in every other game and had every chance to win them, and that is how it is gonna be for the rest of the season... except Wisconsin

Cause I couldn't go for three

Baroclinicity's picture

Not if we try to tackle Robinson like we did Martinez and Burkhead last week...

BUCKEYE_in_BRILLIANT's picture

I think there are two ways to approach whether we should root for tsun. Most years I take the position that we should root for them because regardless of what their record is, we will have to play the same team at the end of the year. If we are going to win, we might as well get credit for beating a top team, and if we lose, we dont want to lose to a team that already has several losses. Plus, its much more enjoyable when they are undefeated or close to it and we beat them and crush their dreams (especially considering how many times they have done to us.)

On the other hand there are reasons to root against tsun. The main reason is that the more successful they are, the more effectively they can recruit and the more effectively they can recruit, the more difficult it will be for tOSU to beat them in the future.

In the past, I always rooted for them because I had confidence that tress would get the recruits he wanted. However, at this point, because tsun has a new coach and our coaching situation is in limbo, I will not be rooting for tsun.

madhatterhater's picture

That was a nice design roll out pass.  I would like to see OSU do something like that.

go bucks

Buckeyejason's picture

You gotta be off your [censored]ing rocker to root for tSUN.

You think they're rooting for us..[Censored] no!!

They sit there in tremendous pleasure each and every game that we lose.

BUCKEYES BABY!

CGroverL's picture

I normally root for all Big-10 teams in non-conference games. With the way Michigan fans have been this season, I'll never do it again. Now I'll just smile as TSUN runs into tough defenses and loses nearly every game the rest of the season.

They are just different fans now and their team still isn't good. They are lost, [Censored] them, [Censored] them and anyone that looks like them.

Good job with your censoring...I had to follow suit.

 

 

"I hope they're last in everything"

Thanks, Urb!

BUCKEYE_in_BRILLIANT's picture

Maybe I shouldn't say I "root" for them. I should say I do not actively root against them.

I do think that when we have a strong team (ie the vast majority of tess's era), it is better for the Buckeyes if tsun does well.

In the end I am a Buckeyes fan so I hope for the best situations for the Buckeyes. I really do not care what those people up north are rooting for. They are too dumb to realize what is best for their team anyway. For example, they hired dick rod.

JakeBuckeye's picture

Michigan still isn't good (as I've been saying) and I'm loving every minute of it.

Barring injury the Buckeyes beat Illinois today.

I hate Blue! I won't even ware blue jeans.But here at The Aldous Huxley Brave New World Home we ware hospital gowns most of the time.We are into neuropsychopharmacology,here at the house as we refer to it. Nurse, Nurse, isn't it almost time for my 3:00 PM psychotropic fix!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Colin's picture

Why the EFF is Rod Smith now playing linebacker?

Buckeyejason's picture

Because he sucks as a runner I would guess... from what I've seen from him I can't blame them..

BUCKEYES BABY!

Sparty being sparty and handing the F'in game away!!

BUCKEYE_in_BRILLIANT's picture

tsun is going to get even luckier in this game than they did against ND

Buckeyejason's picture

Sparty's offense is almost as inept as ours.

BUCKEYES BABY!

Mikefletcher24's picture

I always root against them, I'm from the Woody era and it's just seeded in my brain till I die. I was on my hands and knees praying during the Ap State game final plays, that being said, I would love for them to be over confident when we go there and beat them.

Buckeyejason's picture

Haha take that jaba the Hoke

BUCKEYES BABY!

Damn, that pick-6 thrown by TSUN felt great!

Gholston will probably be suspended next game for his punch.

Buckeyejason's picture

Oh shut the F' up commentator crying about that little taunt..what a bitch he sounded like!

BUCKEYES BABY!

rampageripster's picture

he was right though... if they are gonna call what that LSU punter did, you have to be consistent... it is a dumb rule, but it exists and you have to be consistent in enforcing it

Cause I couldn't go for three

Buckeyejason's picture

I'm not denying that it wasn't a penalty..he just sounded like a little girl whining that it didn't get called..like he has money on Scum or something.

BUCKEYES BABY!

note: Urban and Chris are fantastic together in the booth... one of the few pairings I don't mute

Keep roughing up lil Wayne..can't get enough!!
