Here's something to titillate the traditionalists amongst us:

Tick, tick, tick, Michigan.

High noon!!
That means It'll be an early drinking day.

And when we win the game, we'll buy a keg of boooooooooze!! And we'll drink to old Ohio 'till we wobble in our shoes.

You can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning!

This sounds like a challenge

Noon game, eh? Well the student section should be 1/2 full. Bring on the donuts!

This might be incentive to make the trip!  But we don't want Brady Hoke being angry at OSU fans stealing all the donuts.  He might actually attempt to motivate his team to play us.

I'd hate to think a noon kick would deter the students from The Game.

Half full of Ohio State Students.....

ONE Not Done!

I said this last week to some UM fans, that if Michigan has any say in the matter this game will be played at noon so its long gone off TV as soon as possible.

Have you tried Not Your Father's Root Beer?  It tastes just like the real thing, but it packs a punch (5.9%ABV).  It's a little sweet for me though.  Two is my limit.

Bloody Mary's for breakfast it seems, then "Bloody" skunkbears for lunch.

Well played, Doc, well played! Though I did hear that skunkbear went on the endangered species' list toward the end of last month!

Noon games = 8 AM shower beer and the sounds of TBDBITL at my house.

I'm so glad I quit my night job. It was hard to get home and stay up for the noon games which is 9am west coast. Now I don't ever have to worry about dozing off mid-game. Sorry but it does happen, 9pm - 6am shifts are killer.

I'm on the west right now too. I've taken a 20 minute power nap during halftime of every noon game this year!

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Is my memory fuzzy or do we usually struggle on road nooners?

Cant wait to dominate!!!!

Noon it is.

With that, they already have -14 yards rushing.

I'm blaming Michigan's three losses for this shit.

Jeeves's picture

Noon games are the norm for The Game. Can't blame Michigan for that.

Earle's picture

Sure you can.  Global warming, paper cuts, the BCS -- all Michigan's fault.

Consider it done.  Not sure how to work it out logistically, but I'm a man of my word.

I enjoyed revisiting that thread. I think we can work something out.

People are saying that I'm an alcoholic, and that's not true, because I only drink when I work, and I'm a workaholic.

There's only one thing better than beating scUM.
That's beating scUM in annarbor

The ole Ohio State Meatchicken high noon banger. Where people are chipped tooth and pissed pants drunk by 3pm and it seems normal to everyone around haha.

There's no reason this game doesn't always start at 3:30 or 8 if both teams are highly ranked

ChazBuckeye's picture

I love waking up and getting f@$ked up.  It reminds me of college days;-)  12 Days BABY! Gosh this season went SO fast.

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

IBleedSandG's picture

I usually think noon games are meh, but when it's The Game, I can deal with it. Waiting around to 3:30 kinda sucks for big games.
Here's to watching Denard Devin Gardner get sacked 10 times. Might have to make up a drinking game during the game for that.

I love the high noon start! Got to many neerves flowing through the body to wait around all day for this one. Need to be drunk early and take a big breath of relief after the fight and enjoy the rest of the games!

camodog's picture

That's 10:00am for us Rocky Mountain Buckeyes. which means I will be drinking at 8.
12 more days

9 a.m here in Seattle, I'll probably pregame starting Friday night and just stay up til the GAME comes on!!!

Because we couldn't go for three!!!

gobucks5413's picture

I coach JV basketball, we have a game at 6....thank god this is noon. Or I would've gone insane.
Might have to do some major sobering up afterwards...
"Coach, you smell like my dad"...
I'm kidding.

I hope we put this one away early, I'm in a wedding that starts at 2:30. I won't be able to focus if it's a nailbiter :(

camodog's picture

Who gets married during football season? Yet alone during "The Game"

topher3003's picture

Preaching to the choir.
It makes sense from a calendar standpoint, people will be in from out of town for Thanksgiving so they don't have to make 2 trips to go to the wedding. But both of them are Buckeyes damnit, they should know better!

chitown buckeye's picture

Friday is always available that weekend. I'm sure the bride to be couldnt give up her black friday shopping day....

"I'm having a heart attack!"

Buckataltitude's picture

Agreed. I don't want to brag, but I was married on a Friday night. My wife wanted to be married in the fall, but loves her Buckeye football. We did the normal wedding/reception on Friday and had a tailgate/watching tOSU trash Indiana party on Saturday.

Oyster's picture

Is this family that did this to you, because it certainly can't be a friend ; )

Maybe she's due on Sunday.  That's the only reason I can think of ;)

that marriage is doomed

oh yes..there will be blood.

there is no greater joy than watching Michigan get slammed. in anything

Even Griese - who 'colored' the Illinois game - admitted that UMs lines do not stand a chance against ours.(Refreshing to hear an objective former Wolverine...hint, hint, Desmond)

Not looking good for the skunk bears!!!

Because we couldn't go for three!!!

ArizonaBuckeye's picture

High noon for my Ohio brethren means a 10 am game for us Buckeyes out here in the Sonoran Desert. I guess that means I will have my first beer in hand by at least, oh 7 am. I can't fucking wait to beat on scUM. Go Buckeyes!!

oh_dad55's picture

Like beer pong.  Every time Gardner gets sacked you take a drink.  Better stock up!


SaudiBuckeye's picture

I still immensely dislike noon kick-offs but as I now live on the other side of the world - 6,910 miles from Columbus -  8 PM is perfect. Just hope the video stream is working.
However, the added benefit of a more sociable hour to start the beer flowing is offset or actually wiped out by the fact this is a dry country. So its non-alcoholic suds - all the calories necessary for a beer belly but without the buzz!
