Wow, these FOX pre-game dudes are all sorts of awesome......

It reminds me of the cbs football announcers without the chapped lips from all the cock sucking vern lumquist and his significant other do everyday.

Damn fox this was the best you could come up with?

Is it possible for both teams to lose?

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

I hate cheering for other teams, but let's Go Sparty!!! I hate that state up north and since Alvarez left coaching I despise Wisconsin with a passion. Bielama is a tool, no check that guy is a tool box. I can't stand anything about that guy. I don't know who disgusts me more bielama or the bb coach up there. So let's go fightin Dantonios!!!

Plus watching the bands now I love how every other band tries to emulate TBDBITL. Wiscy's band was plain disgusting like their head coaches up there in cheese land.

GlueFingers Lavelli's picture

There's just something about Bielema's face, I just want to break that dumbass beak of his. Hey at least we beat the B1G champs! sucks for Dantonio.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

Hoody Wayes's picture

Lots of empty seats. 

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

It's killing me to be living in Indy and have to watch these two teams. Damn you Tressel and Pryor!!!

It drives me crazy thinking about I could be watching TOSU right now.

Amen, amen. I don't want to be a hater, and I have the game on, but i'm not really into it. It really sucks about the empty seats. I just have a feeling if it was us or scUM, that wouldn't be the case, you know?

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

The whole thing is really sad. Half the house sits empty. The pregame sucked and was gay with the bands playing inter-mixed like that. The analysts and announcers are embarrassing. My 0-11 colts still fill the stadium. It shows how sad the fan base of 90% of the BIG really are.

Blake's picture

Did anyone just hear that Gus Johnson quote? I think he blew it...

Some people say, Leaders are made, not born...

This was as he was introducing Wisky...

ColdBuckeye's picture

So far, So cheesy 

LABuckeye's picture

I thought the openings with each team and all the hyperbole were kinda embarassing.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

This is, by far, the worst B1G championship game ever.

ThirdLegLouie's picture

....so hard to watch.. especially while trying to fight off the impending food coma i'm going to have.. ahhhh f*** it, i'm taking a nap

If you ain't a Silver Bullet, you're a target

 
Bucksfan's picture

wow, wisconsin got flagged early for an illegal block.  FINALLY

Bucksfan's picture

Welp, fun season guys...looks like Wisconsin is looking to be the sacrificial lamb to Oregon.

Colin's picture

I don't believe in the Oregon hype machine until they actually beat a good team not in their own conference.

Bucksfan's picture

I agree to an extent.  But neither of these teams (MSU, Wiscy) hold a candle to what we see out of LSU, Ohio State, or USC every year.  Wisconsin's defense is a joke, and Oregon's speed will fry them.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

How many hits could those fast but really small skill position players take? It might be fun to watch. Not sure who I'd pull for.

Bucksfan's picture

That's sort of my point.  Wisconsin's defense hits like girls (no offense, ladies).

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Other than watching at the Shoe and the last few minutes of their 1st game with Sparty, I haven't watched them. I was surprised Sparty's very bad offense was able to drive on them just now. I've always thought Wisc to have a very tough hard hitting D.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Those little ass dudes for Oregon vs the massive dudes of Wisconsin. Might be fun to watch. I would think Ball would just run between the tackles every single time.

poop's picture

I said the same thing about the Rose Bowl last year. F*ck Bucky.

Rooster Buckburn's picture

The intro of teams was a little corny to me - kept waiting for Dwayne Johnson to come out and say, "Can you smeeeellllll what the Rock is cookin'?"

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I know this is an unpopular thing to say but Gus makes everything corney to me, add in the overkill cheese from F O X, and the whole production is just ugh IMO.

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Gus needs to choke on his microphone and fall over like the BIG camera man during the Urban presser. That guy is horrible. He is making me flip back and forth to the bedlam game.

Hopefully Ok St wins huge. Cause esecpn is already calling for a 6th sec title. A rematch hopefully will stick a fork into the BsCS.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I don't wish the dude any harm, just can't stand him calling games. I want them to win huge too. Not sure it will be enough. Would love to see Boise in that game.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

Sparty with some life.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Fox's production sucks @$$.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Sparty isn't built to play score for score. Their D better wake up or we are going to have to watch the baby weasels get embarrassed again in Pasadena.

BuckeyeChief's picture

This is their chance to stop crying about being robbed last year.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

If our O beat them this year. They don't stand a chance against the fighting aflacs. I can't stand how Wiscy fans think they are an elite football program now. Without Wilson they would have had our record this year.

BuckeyeChief's picture

Can we cut down on the sugar and red bull in the broadcast booth? Wow these guys are hyped up!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

As much as I hate to say this but why no talk about Ball for Heisman? Guy is having a season to be remembered.

Colin's picture

They haven't won any big games except at Nebraska. After they lost to OSU, you didn't hear about Wisconsin anymore. 

Just watching this game though, I am absolutely amazed we stopped that guy...and their offense in general.

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Great point. They always seem to play a very weak schedule.

USMCBUCKEYE82's picture

Where is the 3rd best defense at? This is going to become disgusting if the fightin Dantonios D up

BuckeyeChief's picture

WOW! Wisky's D does some horrible things at times.

Wow! That was some impressive stuff by Sparty!

Dantonio has a large pair

Bucks's picture

You aren't kidding. Wow.

LABuckeye's picture

Funny, I exclaimed out loud after that conversion that I didn't know Dantonio had balls that big.

This game is UNREAL... lovin it!

Bucks's picture

MSU playing one of their best games ever. Easily a top 3.

slippy's picture

So I'm rooting for MSU, but why did Wisconsin stop running?  First three drives they were unstoppable.  Then they try throwing and PA on first down and they've gone 3 and out 3 in a row. 

LABuckeye's picture

Sparty WANTS that Rose Bowl trip.

Also, OK St is playing themselves into the BCS championship.

I wrongly assumed that girl was going to get destroyed in that throwing contest. Good for her.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I don't think that guy has ever touched a football before. Not making an excuse, she beat him, but did you check out how he threw the ball? That was funny.

LABuckeye's picture

Yep... it was pretty bad.

slippy's picture

Lol landry jones.

I'm actually looking forward to this 2nd half but just reported what seems to be a gas leak outside. Not sure how many here have ever dealt with that but I feel like I was just interrogated & *allllll my things are belong to Columbia Gas*.

Be careful (see San Bruno, California).

Everything okay now?

According to the announcers, Russell Wilson just made chicken salad. (???)

741's picture

I believe there is an old country colloquielism about "turning chicken shit into chicken salad."

LABuckeye's picture

Thanks... though I'll still assert it was a stupid thing to say.

741's picture

College football just and FOX just don't go together - i.e., you can't make chicken salad out of chicken shit.

BuckeyeChief's picture

And you can't pour syrup on shit and call it pancakes!

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

BuckeyeChief's picture

Not understanding the whole "let the play stand, we'll assess on the kickoff" penalty thing...

"Making chicken salad"? WTF?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Bucks's picture

I think chicken salad just broke the interwebs.

LABuckeye's picture

It all makes sense now.

Texas Buckeye's picture

Switching between the B1G Championship game and Ok State-Oklahoma. Looks like the national championship game may not be set in stone. Ok State up 41-3 in the third quarter! 

It's true... We really are a bunch of nuts!
Go Bucks!

BuckeyeChief's picture

Big Game Bob, indeed.

I find it comical/ hillarious, etc that WE are the choke artists, and other than 1 MNC and a BCS game vs a IAA program, the Sooners have lost everything important.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Texas Buckeye's picture

Like my avatar says, I'm originally from Texas so I've never liked the Sooners. Just the fact that they are getting their breakfast, lunch, and dinner handed to them makes me super excited. Plus, I don't want an all-SEC rematch.

It's true... We really are a bunch of nuts!
Go Bucks!

BuckeyeChief's picture

Another good friend of mine played HS football with Mike Gundy; he told me a bunch of crazy stories about how when they were being recruited, OU had steak, lobster, shrimp, etc. but fOSU had sandwiches.

He also said Gundy (who came from money, fwiw) refuses to talk to former team-mates. It's kinda tough to root for a guy like that, I could care less about OU and UT, so for the B12, I really have no rooting interest. I also heard Bill Snyder was a huge prick to his employees.

Can Gus shut up about the doo-rag!?! Talk stats or something like that nice punt right there

slippy's picture

5 bucks says first play is play action bootleg to Ewing in the flat.

slippy's picture

Good thing no one bit.  I think Ball false started on the hard count but Wisconsin doesn't commit penalties.

Bucks's picture

It's too bad that Dantonio hasn't sucked as a HC. If I could bring a former Buckeye staffer back, it would be him.

LABuckeye's picture

Man, I'm going to miss the end of this game. I have to get my wife from the airport in about 20 minutes.

BuckeyeChief's picture

You got a smart phone?

Yep... I'm just hoping I can find it on the radio.

So...does Wisky win on a hail mary?

Gus, please shut up.

Seriously.  Stop calling it naptown.  Nap town is in Maryland.

Colin's picture

So Wisconsin is only down a touchdown but once again they seemed to abandon the run. It's like the Rose Bowl all over again. Stupid Bret Bielema.

LABuckeye's picture

I could be wrong, but I thought it looked like Sparty made adjustments to stop the run.

Bucks's picture

Shhhh, they can't know these things Colin.

Not really, Clemson has fell of recently though. Dabo blasted S Carolina the other day. Anyone catch that?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

slippy's picture

I saw part of it.  He was mad at Spurrier for something OBC didn't say or something?

BuckeyeChief's picture

Yes. The announcer said something like "We ain't Alabama, we ain't LSU, but we ain't Clemson." then the quote got attributed to Spurrier. He went on a calm, fact based rampage.

I think Fox has the worst announcers ever.

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I agree, but tons of people love Gus Johnson. Gus is just annoying to me. way over the top, folks on here love him I'll take the Speils/Meyer combo all day. I love Kellogg calling the BBall games.

Wisky had all of momentum and just gave some back with the missed two point conversion.

Am I in the minority of being shocked here? I thought Wisky was going to kinda abuse MSU in this, regardless of stats/recent records.

Bucksfan's picture

No, I thought the same.  Glad to be wrong.  GO SPARTY!

BuckeyeChief's picture

We don't give a d*mn about the whole state of Michigan, but we are all pulling for Sparty. Even vs the Ducks.

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Is it Saturday Yet's picture

I'm not shitting my pants, but I thought Wisconsin was going to beat them soundly. I didn't realize how bad Wisc. D is.

slippy's picture

I thought Wisky would win but this doesn't surprise me.  Wisconsin's defense is bad, and MSU's is pretty good.  Sparty could easily be up by 15 (2 turnovers and a missed FG).  That would have surprised me.

madhatterhater's picture

It's sad that this is on Fox!

741's picture

I believe FOX owns 49% of the Big Ten Network, doesn't it?

madhatterhater's picture

You may be correct, but they are terrible.

go bucks

ih8rolltyde's picture

I guess its because the B1G is so bad that its championship has been the best game of the day.

And the sec is so badass and awesome that no one really gave uga a chance to win.

And the first lsu/bama game was the game of the millennia because everyone KNEW that no one else in the sec had any reasonable chance to beat either team.

I would personally like to see that ok state O go up against that lsu D.

If lsu was to whup their ass, at least we would know the best team is from the sec.

****igan smells like old water that hot dogs were boiled in.  FACT

slippy's picture

I think other OSU played themselves into the game tonight.  They weren't far behind Bama.  They will pass them in the computers and a lot of pollsters will slot them 2nd especially after this beat down. 

741's picture

At least for the first time ever, we are guaranteed to witness an SEC team lose in the BCS NC game.

Settle down MSU. 4 down territory.

Championship game should be LSU vs. Oklahoma State. What do you guys think?

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. - Woody Hayes

I thought so, until I saw the stats for their D.

I don't think a rematch would be fair though; I didn't it would've been in '06 either.

'Bama had their shot on their home field, let OSU represent.

dmurder's picture

There is no way you can put a team in like bama in the MNF.

That team lost to LSU at home!!!! 

Okie State deserves it after today. They held Oklahoma to 10 points, not saying okie wins but would much rather see them play and think they are more deserving.

Does anyone wonder why Wisky never gets called for holding.

These announcers REALLY want their calls on Sportscenter tonight, huh?

 

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

Bucks's picture

While I agree with ppl that the announcers are a bit over-the-top, I still have to step back and understand this game is a B1G brand start. I'll deal with it.

Gus Johnson just blew a gasket on that 4th and 6 play for UW.  Guy gets into it.

"Damn I miss El Guapo"

dmurder's picture

The kid is one touchdown away from tying barry sanders.

how in the hell does that not get heisman hype? I have a feeling it's because he plays for wisky. The team has two losses, but you cannot leave him out of the contenders.

Enjoy it, you fat greasy bastard. Its your last.

You won't have to.  Oregon can put up 70 on that defense.

GlueFingers Lavelli's picture

Michigan State would give Oregon a better game. I'll be shocked if Wisconsin stays within 3 scores. MSU has a pretty stout defense. Wisky's D is sad. 

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

slippy's picture

Well, Michigan St definitely lost that game.  Fumbled kick return, INT and a missed FG.  And then the dumbest penalty in football (meh, maybe).

Bobcat04's picture

I agree.  Either make it so you can't rush the punter by rule, or abolish the running into the kicker penalty.  Ridiculous.

It's going to be a rough year again for the B1G again.

3 big misses by the officials in this one

 

1) Worthy blows up a 3rd and short, but called for Offside (he wasn't).  Drive results in TD

2) Wilson's long ball to Duckworth he looked to have pushed the DB in the back before catching it.

3) A flop worthy of european football by the Wisc punter

 

I would have to think that if Oregon gets out to any sort of lead against Wisc, that there is no way they can catch up.  You gunna blow it for the B1G two years in a row?

Wow what a sad way to end that game. Another BIG embarassing rose bowl game. You don't go to the west with that d, about to get out gunned.

Yeah they are pretty much in big trouble. If OSU put points on them they don't have much hope against the ducks.

Oregon hung big points and yardage on LSU... The people in hell have a better chance of getting ice water than Wisconsin has of winning a game against the ducks.  Only tOSU has the speed it takes to beat them in the B1G...

Time and change will surely show how firm they friendship... O-HI-O.

SO, we were all privledged with an excellent game ... until the refs decided the outcome. It still was a great game & probably the best of venues today, oddly.

Without letting myself flip too much, that was ridiculous bullshit ref calling. Come on.

It wasnt a bad call, it might just be a stupid rule.  You cant run into the kicker. period.  the flag was on the way before the flop job.  good call on that play. dumb for MSU to hit him.

Just no. In the same spirit of "being pushed out of bounds." the man rolled into the kicker without intention. Crap call. Unfortunately, this initial game ends with a star IMO. MSU was the better team. It WAS a bad call.

I am fairly sure this rule does not take intent into account.  Running into is running into.  I am not sure to which penalty "being pushed out of bounds" is referring.  These calls are designed this way to take the judgment call away from the official.  If he hits the kicker, you throw a flag (in design at least).

I think it was a good call, too.  Don't touch the punter... been a rule forever.

It was stupid to send anyone after the punt. The Lewis kid that hit the punter, was also the same guy who lost the toss up on 4th down to Duckworth. He knocks that down, and Sparty probably hangs on. Crazy game to watch, Sad to see a penalty decide it. Michigan State is a good team.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

On a side note, Chris ... you repped 11W well on the special edition. Appreciate all of you.

I realize Ari is *kinda sorta maybe* a colleague but I still dislike him. Strikes me as an absolute ass.

Chris Lauderback's picture

Thanks man. I was a little nervous since it was live. Ari is cool and so is Brandon. Tim May was also vey cool. He spoke very highly of 11W as we chatted pre and post. Good dude. He's definitely not a Hunter-esque Dispatch crony.

i am sure the city of pasadena is excited to have the cheese people and that ass of a head coach back, oregon way too quick ducks by 20. also make the kicker flop a reviewible call delany

Who would thought that two slow-assed B1G teams would put up 80+ points in the championship game? It was by far the best game of the day. Tough runs, acrobatic catches, huge hits, stupid penalties, this game had it all. I don't think the B1G will win any bowl games this year but hopefully they are at least competitive like these two teams were today. Oh and if LSU and 'Bama have a rematch, I'll find something better to do.

Alabama gave up 21 points to Georgia....Southern. Enough said, Oklahoma State should be in the title.
