What will you be watching on bye-week Saturday?

I chose other, because I will be watching the leaves getting picked up that I have been ignoring for the last 6 weeks.  The wife is getting fussy and I am out of excuses.

ya know if she's that fussy, have her do it.  That'll cool her off.

Yea, I'm gonna have to pass on that advice.

Before you go out to rake the leaves, leave a nice romantic trail of rose petals into the kitchen leading to the pile of dishes she needs to do. Don't forget to take your keys though, depending on her sense of humor.

Actually, I sometimes will open the dishwasher and lift the door up and down while 'inspecting' it, then proclaim to her, 'Nope, it still works'.

Also, whenever she asks you what you are looking at on-line, don't tell her. It seems women love mystery.

I chose other, because I will be watching waves crash on the beach on the shores of Kauai.  We couldn't have picked a better weekend to go on vacation!

Well played, sir

Other.  Catching up on chores around the house : (

cplunk's picture

Other; I'll be watching myself shoot skeet and trap, then do chores. In a year where we can't make the championship anyway, all other teams are irrelevant to me.

Haha.
I wish I could have Denard throw the skeet so they had more hang time and I'd never be able to anticipate where to aim.

the carrier classic!  I refuse to watch ttun.  they only happen to be on the field when OSU plays.

Other because everyone in my life knows that I go to all of the games and it with it being the bye week, everyone scheduled their events for this weekend.

Ethos's picture

I voted other, i'll be watching whatever movies the air industry decides to show on my way to the Fatherland.

I chose other mostly because I'll probably watch a few games.  I'm certainly curious about Wisky and scUM, but some of the most intriguing matchups are Oregon State/Stanford, Texas A&M/Alabama, and PSU/Nebraska.

Earle's picture

Other.  Too much to do that has been put off.  And speaking of bye weeks, I'm not crazy about not having an OSU game to watch, but I'm glad I don't have to suffer through another Brown's game this weekend.

Italics are for emphasis.

Texas A&M vs. Alabama
rooting for the upset

Alhan's picture

I voted other for this same reason.  That said, The Oregon State/Stanford game should also be worth giving a lookie loo.

same is here plus Oregon at Cal

Alice in Aggieland's picture

As the handle suggests, I'll be watching the Aggies as well. Should be a good game; I think A&M has only gotten better since the stupid losses to LSU and Florida, which both came at Kyle Field. 
Grad-school football fandom is the best: You celebrate when your adoptive team wins, and you don't really give a shit when they lose.

Other. I need to finish remodeling the basement for the new TV room/mancave and it has to be done for November 24.

Other.  I'm exercising my 2nd and 21st Amendment rights.

Firearms and Booze nice! 

Tdizzle's picture

I will keep checking this site as to how the coaches r doing on the recruiting trail

hodge's picture

Hopefully, I'll be able to catch a night game after an all-day IKEA and Jungle Jim's extravaganza in Cincinnati.  I'm going to be fried.

Alhan's picture

Jungle Jim's has to be the greatest place in the world.  I'm jealous of that part, not so much on the IKEA front...

"Nom nom nom" - Brady Hoke

hodge's picture

Ehh, I like 'em both.  IKEA's furnature may not be for everyone (and the "adult legos with non-intuitive instructions" isn't really endearing, either), but their value is without peer.

GoBucks713's picture

Don't forget about the fact that it's fun to people watch at IKEA, and also hear them try to pronounce the names of the merchandise. I like to hide in stuff and scare people when I'm there.

Stock up on GL Christmas Ale while you're at Jungle Jim's.

We should strive to keep thy name, of fair repute and spotless fame...

Kroger near my house is selling Elevator Winter Warmer...yum!

buckeyeEddie27's picture

Goose Island Christmas Ale also very good.  Need that in my life asap.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I'll be watching survival horror as I finish Resident Evil 6

Other: ever year we host a pre-thanksgiving thanksgiving with all of our friends. Normally they are treated to me locking myself in a room by myself to watch the game, in addition to the feast. This year I actually get to socialize a bit. So I'll be watching myself overeat and catchup with old friends.

Other: Will be at the Stanford-Oregon St. game. I love that I can hear the sounds of cheering from Stanford stadium down the street but only go to one home game a year because I choose to stay home and watch OSU every other week of the season :)

Anyone know if there's a Twilight Zone marathon on Saturday? Seriousely, I'll be doing a lot of surfing on the college games.

BeanvilleBuck's picture

I look forward to giving myself a much needed break from Buckeye gameday day-drinking that carries over way too late into the night...I'm getting too old for all that craziness when I am still hurting at work Wednesday.

hitting the casino on the bye week and playing poker ALL DAY

buckeyeEddie27's picture

Working during the day but soaking up as much football as possible afterwards.  Def watching the Carrier Classic too.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

joel121270's picture

Other, no OSU means I don't really care...will watch ND with the wife as she is a fan though later in the evening.

BuckeyeCash22's picture

Even though I'll be watching Wisconsin, I chose other because I don't give a crap about their defense....
I'm watching to see if Indiana can really pull it off....

Mike Honcho's picture

Going to watch some future D1 kids in some HS playoff action

Oyster's picture

My sons team was bounced out last week.  This will be the first Friday in 11 weeks we haven't been to a game.  Not really sure what we will do with an open Friday night now.

LadyBuck's picture

Watching the Carrer Classic is a good start. 

onetwentyeight's picture

NOT the Big Ten that's for sure LOL. Nobody's sanity can handle that

lljjgg's picture

Yeah, to be completely honest, I'll probably be watching the SEC games & the ND game later that night. The B1G hasn't interested me this year (outside of OSU the rest of the B1G is pretty boring), and I'm not really into the Pac12 outside of Oregon/USC.

GeneStarwind's picture

Carrier Classic on Friday then traveling to Sandusky on Saturday to watch my high school playoff game against Ben Gedeon. Then watch DVR Utah Jazz and cancelled Red Wing hockey.

TennesseeJohn's picture

I'll be playing HALO 4 while watching the scores on my laptop to see if any games turn out to be exciting/not boring.

osubuckeye4life's picture

Carrier Classic Friday night and then the Saturday college football:
Johnny Touchdown and The Fighting Manziels vs Satan's Disciples
Ludicrous Speed Quack Attack vs Da Bears?
Nocturnal, large, semi-aquatic Rodentia vs "The Trees"
Bill Snyder's (yes, that Bill Snyder) Wildcats vs Toke U
The Catholics vs The Ancient Order of the Walrus
 
It should be quite entertaining.

 other. Playing golf in Myrtle Beach!

LadyBuck's picture

Well, I'm going to watch OSU Basketball to kick off the weekend. Football wise, I want to see Oregon and 'Bama v. A&M. 

BuckeyeUro's picture

Thanks for the reminder guys, will definitely watch the Carrier Classic Friday night.
