Eleven Dubcast: Invasion Illinois

By Michael Citro on November 13, 2013 at 4:15p

We're completely finished with bye weeks for the 2013 Ohio State football season. Nothing but football every week through season's end, folks.

Not the team spokesman.Thanks Evan, but we'll handle the smack talk around here.

Without a Buckeye game to recap, Johnny Ginter and I turn to the other top games and discuss the media hoopla du jour. Since basketball is underway, we certainly don't shy away from discussing hoops, either.

With a trip to Illinois to take on the Fighting Illini, we welcome to the program Bob Asmussen, college football writer for the Champaign News-Gazette, to discuss all things relevant to this weekend's matchup and the Illini in general. Things haven't gone well so far for Tim Beckman, and Bob gives us the lowdown.

And we get all sentimental about Buckeye basketball teams of the past in our Ask Us Anything segment, in which you, the home listener, can actually ask us anything you want! You can do that every week via email at elevendubcast@gmail.com.

Grab this week's Dubcast and get a full rundown of events after the jump.

Here's how it all went down:

0:25- Me and Johnny discuss some of the big games of the Buckeye bye week, plus stupid media stuff and did anyone actually see the Ohio State-Morgan State game?

23:04- Bob Asmussen of the Champaign News-Gazette jumps aboard to talk Fighting Illini football and you'll enjoy this. (Hint: Bob doesn't pull any punches.)

36:11- Ask Us Anything wants to know about our favorite Buckeye hoops teams. We tell.

47:09- Giant turkey legs, figgy pudding and sheep's heads!

And that'll do it. Your music this week was Take Me to the Top by Loverboy, Jenny Was a Friend of Mine by The Killers, and When Earth Meets the Sky by Karmakanic.

Snap, I meant to say '10/11 with Lighty, Diebz, Sully, Bufford, Craft, Deshaun, & co.
We had a really great shot at winning it all that year and by the end of the season, I was fully invested (emotionally) in that team. So the loss to Kentucky was especially devastating.

That's basically what my response was. I loved that team. They were just so much fun to watch and so likeable.

I remember watching that game.  At the time my new girlfriend (now fiance) walks in like 30 seconds before kentucky won the game.  Then Tatoo Gate happened, then our football team goes 6-7 and we lose to michigan and get a bowl ban.  I was convinced that she was bad luck for Ohio State.  I told her as much, she didn't take it all that well, but I didn't really care because I believed it.
Now that we have another Final Four, Urban Meyer, a couple top 5 recruiting classes, a 21 game win streak, MGOBLOG is in full meltdown (I mean it's really horrible over there these days), Florida sucks, Texas sucks, USC sucks, Penn State sucks, and Ohio State continues to climb in the classroom, I have decided to be the bigger man and forgive her for being bad luck during 2011 for Ohio State.
I don't mean to pat myself on the back, but I am pretty sure that it shows my maturity level.

Mmmm turkey legs. I grew up five minutes away from the Ohio Renaissance festival and every weekend I would go out there and just get a turkey leg. Like literally I would buy a ticket, go buy a turkey leg and leave. lol good times growing up in the boonies.

The "Boss" will buy them sometimes when I get the chest smoker out.  She makes me put a couple in along with the Boston Butt as an added benefit.  I use a small foil pan with butter and some rub under the skin.  The Butt drippings fall in the pan for added flavor.  Mmmmm, I miss summer already.
