A few things Miami fans wish were never said.

When reading pre-game jib-jab from Oregon fans in the weeks before the 2010 Rose Bowl, I started to copy and paste the bold (most of the time arrogant) statements I heard just for fun to look back at after the game.

Well, I didn't expect to do so for the Miami game, but a few fans just blew me away and forced me to.

I don't add any names to the quotes, as that would be a little over the top, but you'll recognize the first one from Miami RB Damien Berry. Enjoy;


"When we win. I don't want to say if because it's not an if."


“No doubt about it! The D-Line for the Canes will be wreaking havoc on Pryor and the RB’s all afternoon. Speed the bucknuts haven’t ever seen. It’s going to be fun to watch.”


“Or how about DE Allen Bailey that runs a 4.5 at 290 lbs? Are you serious? Pryor will be running for his freaking life on Saturday. LOL”


“Enjoy your #2 ranking buddy, because after Sept. 11th it'll back to another fall and spring of your "comparative" research for next season!”


“the 'canes WILL beat your perenially overranked, over hyped, joked of a program form the fifties,”


“Try reading real articles about OSU and Miami practices and maybe you will start smelling the sweet aroma of a Miami win.  The Miami press is a pro press and they don't pull punches like the the toy newspaper, columbus dispach, in the toy captial columbus and even then they don't paint a pretty picture.”


“Shock and awe on 9/11! No undefeated season for OSU. OSU fans, wait and see and watch and learn.”


“WTF? This team (Ohio State) is just not deep this year at any position.”


“Nothing better than the whole Game Day crew to pick against you! And of course we can count on Holtz to dump on us as well. With those 4 in agreement against us, a win over OSU is lock.”


“9/11, another very bad day for Big Ten. But after 9/11, its back to the MAC to run up the scores and make those stats look good.”


“Miami 21 to 24 - OSU 13 to 17. Take it to the bank.”


“In summary another set of reasons why Maimi will prevail on 9/11...USC redeux.”


“I have been consistent and have predicted a 4 to 7 point win by Miami...it will happen.”


“Bring your crying towels, you will need them.”


“Every day OSU gets a little weaker and the U gets stronger.”


“Official Prediction: Miami 27, Ohio State 13”


“we don’t see how Ohio State comes within 7-10 points of Miami in a 60 minute game, no matter where it’s held.”


“The bottom line is, save for a bunch of UM turnovers (a la the 2003 Fiesta Bowl), on paper this game shouldn’t be that close.”


“When predicting outcomes, we don’t wear orange and green goggles.  That being said, we don’t see how Ohio State can match Miami’s speed and athleticism.”


“Apparently, they’re getting caught up in the universal #2 ranking they’ve received in the polls, or the Vegas odds which have them – not Alabama – as the betting favorites to win a national title this year.  Settle down my pasty white friends.  Your team is good.  But it is not THIS good.”


“I hear about this stable of Buckeye running backs and receivers, but have a hard time thinking that it compares to Miami’s.  I don’t see anyone on the Ohio State roster that runs like Damien Berry”


“I’ve not only put money on this game, but I’m thinking of cashing out my kid’s 529 College Savings Plan to take Miami and the points.”


“I will gladly accept bets with Miami getting 10 f’n points.  Cuz Miami is going to win this game outright.  And you know what, I don’t think it’s going to be that close.  Forget getting 10 points, I’ll give points.  That’s right.  I’ve set aside $100 for my favorite Buckeye fans.  And, I will give you 6 points.  Miami -6.  That’s 16 off the spread, for you math challenged Buckeye fans out there.”


“Those fat mouth breathers from the north are blinded by their scarlet and grey goggles.”


“Miami takes this one in an ugly beat down where OSU looks like a beaten team with no answers, much like we often see when Tresselteams get beat. It will be a full house at kick off, it will look like select-a-seat day by the third quarter. Miami 37-Ohio State 6”


“Everyone reppin Ohio ST needs to take both of their hands, put it around your necks, and choke yourselves! UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!”

Come on now, at least this guy was half right.  He clearly knows his team.

That guy was right too.

He did flip a little from the messages he was receiving leading up to the game so snapped a bit.


Decently ate his crow though on the newest post. Unlike some of the others who have decided Miami purely beat themselves and owned us in all facets of the game.

Thanks. This is very gratifying.  I was going through a bunch of post-game commentary from both their fans and the Miami area press.  Very few gave any credit to Ohio State's athleticism, game planning, power or the loud fans in the Shoe.  That kind of hubris staggers the imagination...and could have only possibly have come from "Duh U"...I suppose in a few weeks they'll be claiming they actually won the game.

Is this in reference to Damien's ability to run his mouth? Or are we talking football-wise? I'd gladly agree if it was the first one!

Speaking of the Duck fans....

ohio state might hang but there not going to hang with the high powered duck offense! and they may even hold it in check for a quarter or two but there not gonna hold it for 4 quarters! just not gonna happen! OREGON 35 ohio state 21

Lets look at the facts. This year The USC Trojans had an off year because we're rebuilding. We lost most of our D line & at least 1/2 of our O line , we lost our QB & lost 3 coaches and even then in our rebuilding year The USC Trojans beat the buckeyes at the horseshoe. That doesn't speak well for Ohio St. I tell you what is going to happen. The Oregon duck will beat the Buckeyes & the PAC 10 Dominance over Ohio St will continue.

To me Oregon is clearly the better team. I believe that they're just too fast for Ohio State. I believe that Masoli wants to show Oregon that he shouldn't have been second fiddle to Pryor last year when they were recruiting.

Having said that Ohio State defintely worries me because they're still a descent team and a team we could easily overlook because of the Oregon/USC game and USC/Ohio St. game. If Oregon doesn't win this game it will be absolutely embarrassing for the Pac-10.

Oregon's offense will be ready. The question is will their defense?


  1. 36. Posted by WAWebfootInMichiganMon Dec 21 12:30am EST

The difference here can be stated simply in one word: time. Whenever Oregon has time to prepare their team the coaching staff has the team completely prepared. Remember how Washington was supposed to have their "breakout" game against Oregon? The Ducks had two full weeks to prepare and knocked the Huskies back to the Stone Age. At the same time time has never served Ohio State well...the layoff between the Michigan game and their bowl game always makes OSU sluggish at start, and the combination of those two factors will have the Ducks well in the lead before anyone knows what happened. Most pundits are predicting a 10+ point Oregon victory based on those factors.

Oregon. Ohio St. is OVERRATED


  1. 14. Posted by pussburghstoolersFri Dec 18 7:28am EST

I have a feeling Oregon will punch out the suckeyes it will be a TKO. After all Oregon blew out USC by 27 and OSU lost by 3 to USC. The streak continues.

If someone I knew personally offered to bet me Oregon would win by 24, I'd bet them the farm.

Oregon by 24...that's funny!

You got any more jokes that good?

I'd be willing to bet Oregon doesn't even score 24!!

The past means nothing. If you want it to, then Oregon is national champs if Dixon doesn't go down. Ohio St is a mediocre team at best. The Ducks will rip their heads off if they decide to show up. No one has won on the blue grass in Idaho, I wonder why? Why are they allowed to even have it? Stanford was VERY underrated. O showed up for neither of those games. Our superbowl was the Beavers going doen, the other OSU is an after thought. Buckeys, I appreciate being dedicated to your team, but not this year. Prior sucks and so does your team. O by 24

Oregon - 56
Ohio St - 10

Big 10 fans sure talk tough for a conference that hasnt even won the Rose Bowl since 2000. 0-6 in their last 6 trips to Pasadena. Oregon is going to crush Ohio St. Ohio St couldnt even beat Purdue or USC for christs sakes ....... but theyre going to beat Oregon .... haha, funny.

42-17 oergon, Pryor is a choker in big games until he proves me wrong he will have another 4-5 turnovers in this one as well....he cant pass unless his wr is wide open. and with ohio not wanting to use his full skills oragan will tea off on him and he will stay in the pocket and throw his weak ass balls to oergon deff....peace out

  1. 114. Posted by DawgmeatThu Dec 31 3:01am EST

#112 ......... you obviously have me mistaken for somebody who gives a sh*t. you SERIOUSLY think the Big 10 is even HALF as good as the Pac 10 this season ???? lol ...... comical !!!!! im not somebody who puts an extreme amount of weight on the bowl games ..... i look at the entire body of work over the course of the season ....... and its quite apparent the highest the Big 10 is ranked this year is 5th. Big 10 fans are just as delusional as SEC fans ..... only SEC fans at least have SOME merit to their claims. Big 10 fans have looked at season after season after season after season of failures ..... and they STILL think they have a good conference.

Oregon is going to RAPE Ohio St ..... the game wont even be close.

  1. 105. Posted by DawgmeatWed Dec 30 2:19pm EST

#95 ..... you are a FOOL. Oregon St beat Notre Dame in the 2001 Fiesta Bowl (for the 2000 season) and Oregon beat Colorado in the 2002 Fiesta Bowl (for the 2001 season). weird how the official website for the University of OREGON has the box score on their site .....


Joey Harrington ..... 28 of 42 for 350 yards and 4 TDs. hmmmm .... remind me, where did Joey Harrington go to school again ??????

ifcdave, you little f*cktard, I have a little geography lesson for you. I'll keep is simple because I don't beleive you can handle complex thoughts.

California is Oregon's neighbor to the south.
California has about 10 times the population of Oregon.
Therefore, yes we recruit quality players out of California.
Yes, Oregon pulls top talant away from "home teams" like UCLA, USC, Stanford, and CAL.
How do we do it? Easy! We have a top notch program that wins games.

Final Score
Oregon: 48
OSU: 27

Michael ..... Ohio St is NOT going to shut down Oregon's running game. it is not a conventional rushing attack. they use misdirection plays very well, to the degree that sometimes the cameraman doesnt even know who has the damned ball. they force the defense to chase them all over the field and wear the defense out ..... and just when the defense is tired from chasing James all over the field, Oregon will bring in the bruiser Blount.

i do not see how Ohio St wins this game. anything is possible ...... but i expect Oregon to put at least 35 on the board, and i dont see Ohio St matching that.


  1. 157. Posted by TOMLFri Jan 1 12:36pm EST

ohio state fans sound like idiot,s talking trash. look at the stats before talking crap. the teams played and the scores OREGON fans r the only 1,s who should be talking smack we got the numbers to prove it OREGON 41 ohio state 17


  1. 192. Posted by RussDFri Jan 1 4:55pm EST

Ducks are going to rollllllllllllllllllll the buckeyes!

  1. 207. Posted by DawgmeatFri Jan 1 5:53pm EST

iffy ..... you spoke too soon ...... Oregon just rushed for 50 yards on two plays. i tried telling you guys its the misdirection plays Oregon runs that kills teams ..... exactly like the misdirection play that netted 37 yards. you seem to be fairly intelligent ..... dont make the same mistake so many make and think football games are 15 or 30 minutes long. do i have to remind you that Ohio St shut USCs offense down all game long until a 14 play 86 yard drive that won the game for USC ? ive personally been at games where a team was losing 21-9 and won 36-21 ..... and a game where a team was losing 24-0 and won 55-24.

there is a LOT of football left to be played.

Wow are you Ohio State fans pathetic and blind. This team couldn't beat a real team all season long. They had to go into overtime against an Iowa team that didn't even have its starting Quarterback. They beat an over rated Penn State team, good for them. They were beat by USC who was a complete joke this season. Also lets go down this road, when you are embarrased by Purdue who went 2 and 10 this season, you shouldn't be allowed into a bowl game, let alone a BCS game.

Year after year Ohio State goes into a BCS game and embarasses not only their entire state but the entire Big 10 Conference. They stuff more coffers then USC could ever wish too.

Oregon can easily open up a 21 point win on this pathetic team. Their D isn't anything to be proud about and on top of that, they have no offense at all. For the sake of it all though, Oregon 42 - OSU 14 if they are lucky
