Eleven Dubcast: A Hate Worse Than Death

By Michael Citro on November 27, 2013 at 4:15p

It's the official Hate Week edition of the Eleven Dubcast! Despite some kind of SARS or bird flu, your intrepid co-host (along with Eleven Warriors' own delightful Johnny) are here to welcome you to the last week of the 2013 Ohio State football regular season.

They say you never know what can happen in a rivalry game. If that's true, why are Ohio State and Michigan fans both predicting a Buckeye blowout in Ann Arbor? Isn't Brady Hoke almost invincible in the Big House, give or take a Nebraska Cornhusking? I personally find it more unnerving when everyone is in agreement than when the usual hubris by both sides is at the forefront.

Nevertheless, Johnny and I are joined by Ace Anbender, staff writer extraordinaire for MGoBlog, and a regular contributor to Johnny's "Sun and Bluesday" column every Tuesday, right here at 11W. Ace is more than qualified to give us the lowdown on the dreaded (by both fan bases, apparently) Team Up North.

And as always, we answer your most perplexing questions in our Ask Us Anything segment. Can't figure something out? Just ask us, by email at elevendubcast@gmail.com!

Enjoy the Dubcast and get the full rundown after the jump.

Here's how it broke:

0:27- Johnny and I review the beatdown of Indiana on Saturday. In hoops talk we wonder what's up with LaQuinton Ross, and finally we talk about The Game.

20:56- Ace Anbender gives a complete and candid analysis of why Michigan fans are so not looking forward to this Saturday's game.

43:36- Ask Us Anything is in full force once again, and we're not afraid to tell you exactly what's up with Circus Peanuts.

55:35- Dream jumpin' at Mirror Lake.

And it's a wrap! If you'd like to check out this week's Dubcast music, download Hate Incarnate by Gno, Prognosis by Enchant, and the very appropriate Hatesong by Porcupine Tree.

See you next week for the Big Ten Championship Game preview!

I am getting sick of the media outside of this site:
The narrative of what 1 loss SEC team should jump OSU is now starting to emerge!
FUCK Mandel and all the other lazy SEC loving bloggers/journalist/writers/graffiti artists

The "should (fill in the blank) jump tOSU if they win?" narrative of the week.  Didn't work out so well for Stanford or Baylor.  Most analysts don't think that would happen even in the unlikely event Auburn beat Bama, even if they went on to win the SEC Championship.  Right now, I'm just concerned about TTUN, and after that, MSU is legitimately scary.  I do get where you're coming from A_B ... hopefully the bucks have an awesome bowl victory and the rest of the B1G gets some wins in the post season to help things out moving into next season.

You and I and everybody on this site knows this narrative is bullshit - but the fact that it is now starting to surface on the big sites is what is disturbing and annoying!!!

That was from a fan of Auburn, and the writer told him no.  I fail to see that as an issue? The main media writers are defending Ohio State in this case.

Everyone I have seen has said that there's no WAY tOSU gets passed by a 1-loss team. It is not going to happen.

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

Happy Turkey Day! May you eat and drink well as dreams of raping scUM with a 12 foot plunger dance in your head.

I used to work at Spangler Candy Co. where Circus Peanuts are made. I agree.. one per every 20 years is pretty spot on. Those things are pure sugar, literally. 

There can be only one
