I selected "other" thinking that was the same as "all of the above."

Oyster's picture

I selected other also, but it was because I have disdain for all players equally, whether a bench warmer or a starter.  And why wasn't Anthony Carter on that list, didn't he play for what seemed to be 6 years?

FitzBuck is clearly the winner.  Not even close.

Same here. 1 turd is equally as bad as the next

But we have to see D. Howard regularly if any espn is watched. And that little bit goes a long way. What a piece of work. Points out scUM "character", how they "do it right", how OSU plays "ineligible" players, but doesn't say one word about the Frank Clark situation. Funny how some things get omitted.

I chose Mike Hart because out of all the guys on that list...he talked more S*** and never backed it seemed like the worse they were and less likely to win he got louder. So Annoying, I guess my hatred for him stems from every other person in my life that has a "little brother" complex and doesn't know when to stfu.

Normal Buck's picture

He actually had a pretty big game in '06, but he was a 4-time loser.  I voted for him too, because he was a Napoleonic-complex-having little b-.
i concur with the others though, that we need an "all of the above" option.

Did anyone else think of Mike Hart when the Wisky annoucers kept announcing that Monte Ball never fumbles... then Ryan DAMN Shazier blasts him.

Anybody from Ohio that goes to Michigan. So it could be Elvis Grbac/Desmond Howard going from Cleveland St Joe together. They can suck it. But I don't mind Howard on Gameday, unlike many here. He isn't a suck up, and correctly recognizes why the SEC has been good lately, toughness in the trenches. Not the zone read. Tom Brady? He is like a foot note in Michigan football. He wasn't nearly as good as Drew Henson, who screwed up (in a way) opting for baseball.

I hastily checked Desmond Howard, so I didn't see that Mike Hart was a choice. Both. How's that? 
Also, it appears as though Buckeye Nation has an unspoken man crush on Tom Brady. (?)

How can anyone hate Mike Hart?  At 0-4, he was completely harmless in the end.
Biakabatuka, however...

I voted for Howard but Harbough is a close second in my book.

Geraffi's picture

Hello Heisman is enough reason for me to hate Desie more than any other, especially because we have to see that play over and over and over again. After that I might go for Biakabatuka. I don't hate Mike Hart. He's just a loud mouth garden gnome who helped the good guys go 4-0 against TTUN during his tenure. LOVE that twerp. 

BuckeyeTrack10's picture

I chose Mike Hart as well, but Jake Long, Prescott Burgess, Shawn Crable, Chad Henne and more recently Kyle Kalis come to mind in that other category. 

Chris Lauderback's picture

Those are all good ones. I had a hard time cutting the list to 5 just in the spirit of keeping the poll from stretching 2 feet down the page. In addition to the heavy hitters I listed, Marcus Ray is on my personal short list along with John Kolesar and Anthony Carter.

M Man's picture

Kolesar; what a totally excellent choice.  I love Kolesar.
I was wondering where I go to fill out papers for the Justin Boren Write-in Candidacy.

No offense, but I have to downvote anything urine and blue this week. Just like Michael shooting Sollozzo and McClusky, it's not personal.

painterlad's picture

Exactly which policy did I violate? And I clearly stated it is not a personal vandetta against M Man; I just hate Michigan and I will continue to downvote anything that speaks against an Ohio man coming to his senses and playing for The Ohio State University.

it was a broad comment. I was referring only to downvoting on just the fact of where his fanhood lies, not in that his posts are downvote worthy.

I hate them all, but that guy with the pose was perhaps the worst

I seleceted "other".  I hate them all.

I remember the disbelief and pit in my stomach when I watched Tim Biakabtuka run roughshod over and through our defense.

~Because we couldn't go for three~

Oyster's picture

You can take solace in the fact that he had a failed NFL career and now lives in a van,
down by the river.

FitzBuck is clearly the winner.  Not even close.

Wow! Great call. Should have been on the list.

buckeyedude's picture

It's a toss up for me between Woodson and Desmond, but I went with Woodson because he is from Fremont, Ohio, just down the road from Toledo. I dont like any TTUN players, but I especially hate TTUN players from the great state of Ohio. They are in a special catagory for me. They are mercenaries. Turncoats. Traitors, IMHO. I absolutely hate that every time there's an advertisement on TV for TTUN, they always have to show that friggin Desond Heisman pose. I've always hated the TTUN arrogance.
Hart is/was just a loud mouth that couldn't back up his bark with a bite.  Like a chihuahua.
I agree with Earle: Jim Harbaugh is another one thats easy to hate. When he makes his cocky prediction, but he backed it up. Burns me even more.

Desmond did the pose & that sucked but Biakabatuka was the one one took the most wind out of my sails by ruining the 95 season.

painterlad's picture

Recently? Hart.
A while back? Howard.
All time hate? Rick I freaking hate your guts Leach. The glorious Archie era was when I was starting to understand football, so all I knew was that Michigan lost to us every year. Then Leach came along...and the seed of pure hatred was sown into my soul.

Ian_InsideTheShoe's picture

Hart was the biggest loudmouth I've seen. To talk all that up and then go 0-4 was sweet, but I still hate him the most.

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

xtremebuckeye's picture

It was a toss up between Hart & Howard, had to Howard for the same reason
LouGroza did. We have to see him almost every week

O H I O is the Buckeye State

jestertcf's picture

My favorite Wolverine was Henson. Thank you for leaving waaaay early and  playing baseball,  letting us feast on the John Navarre years.

~Because we couldn't go for three~

Baroclinicity's picture

As much as I dislike the Yankees and the Yankee machine, I'm positive (I have no proof of course) that George Steinbrenner had the motive to get him out of Michigan.  I don't know enough about Henson as a prospect back in the day, but I always wonder if it was the same player from a different school, would he have got that contract from the Yankees?
edit:  now that I look this up, I think I have some facts wrong in here

GeneStarwind's picture

I have a small hate for Desmond Howard just because he's has become a complete moron as an analyst. But I still appreciate his days as a Green Bay Packer. Same goes for Charles Woodson. So I had to choose Tom Brady, because I dislike the Patriots for cheating and Brady well cuz he's a cocky sumbitch. I just never really liked him.

SPreston2001's picture

That damn Heisman pose by Desmond will be forever implanted in OSU history! The fact that he actually went on to win the award made it even worse!! I cant stand to see that clip! Desmond by a long shot!

sb97's picture

Other - Jim Harbaugh and his garuntee.

dr green's picture

I hate them all, but voted "Other" for Denard, because that eating the spooned air thing drives me insane.

JozyMozy's picture

he was the first person I noticed doing it last year, and ever since then, I've been seeing it everywhere. Hell, Carlos Hyde did it just last week. I cringe and get annoyed every time, it's like a Pavlovian reaction.

Buckeyefan9973's picture

I hate them all former and current with a hate that is like acid eating in to your soul, but I swear to Jesus if Detard does that spoon thing one more time I will hurt him Law Obiding Citizen style.  Now the crazy is vented I picked Desmond, I would love to snap his arm off and beat Mark May with it.

SEC BUCKEYE's picture

I don't understand the Mike Hart hate lol.... He never beat us in his 4 years at michigan. He would always talk smack only to lose another game lol....I dislike tim Biakabutuka the most watching him go from and unkown to running all over our great defense was very sobering to say the least.

MediBuck's picture

Howard. At least Hart has faded away into scUM obscurity, but Desmond's ugly mug graces ESPN every time I turn on the damn channel and when the BTN ad where he strikes the Heisman pose makes me inadvertently bristle and growl every time.

This made up for it though:

What about "every wolverine?" That is my actual answer. 

Doc's picture

Desmond, because of the pose, because of his poor crowns on his teeth, because of Torg and because he is a gaping vag.

Breakawayspeed's picture

I picked Brady.  Mainly because he's a candied-ass pretty boy with an ego the size of New England.

hodge's picture

I picked "other", because my answer is yes. 

Alhan's picture

Desmond, because of "the pose" and the fact that he's all over ESPN.  I can't get away from him!!!

Really surprised by all the votes for Hart - he never really did anything against us.  Howard on the other hand should probably avoid grassy knolls when he's in town...

Buckeye Chuck's picture

Chalk me up as another one who voted other because "all of them" wasn't an option, though if I had to pick one it would obviously be Howard.
And isn't hating Mike Hart a little bit like hating the Washington Generals?
