GET IT, BRUTUS

Welcome to the first of two bye week Saturdays on Ohio State's slate this season. Whether you plan to spend time with family, catch up on some of the tasks you've been putting off, or settle into the couch for a 12-hour college football marathon – a session that doesn't include the angst/joy of an Ohio State game, we hope you make the most of it.

If you're looking for something to do before Paul Finebaum shows up on GameDay to tell you how bad Ohio State is, this Adam Rittenberg piece on what went into the biggest game of Pat Fitzgerald's coaching career is well worth a read. Spoiler: Fitz quotes channels Flavor Flav.

The early games include the Red River Shootout Rivalry Shootout (RIP, Mack Brown), Indiana at Sparty in what could be an interesting tilt all of a sudden, 5-0 Missouri at Georgia and Ol' Ball Coach impaling Bret Bielema's Razorbacks.

Remember freshman orientation the speaker ended by saying, "The Buckeye is a poison nut. You eat it, you die. Welcome to Ohio State!"

I may be in the very large minority, but I actually enjoy the highly unlikely idea of Bert's Razorbacks making a little noise in the SEC. It would do some damage to the perception that the SEC could play in the NFL.

I think Texas A&M has done a bit of that with their success the past two years as well.

I would have thought that too, but they just pretended that aTm was always a powerhouse program. Arkansas was beat by Rutgers this year, they couldn't pretend that they are good.

That rittenberg piece shows that there is occasionally some quality work at ESPN. There I said it.

just another psycho, irrational, delusional Ohio St fan

Agree Gumtape. One of the few. Would say that even when I don't agree with Rittenberg, at least he makes a fair case. Not trying to be hard boiled or incendiary.

I love that Brutus!  Was the first one I saw dancing to Buckeye touchdowns.

So if Texas gets blown out today how quickly does Mack brown get fired?

I think he has to tell them privately he is resigning.  I don't see them firing him, though.

Bert & The Karma Pigs getting killed right now. I look forward to him wallowing in mediocrity, having the fans turn on him, and eventually being fired from Arkansas & the mighty SEC...

Is it me or does the SEC make Burt look 50lbs fatter?

We'd get hammered in the media if this nut would make an appearance again.
