For what it's worth... the first tweet listed is from an Indiana student, NOT from an Ohio State fan.
Did you not read what I wrote? You must not have because I felt it was fairly straight forward. The team needs to PLAY UP TO THEIR ABILITIES. The coaches need to COACH UP TO THEIR ABILITIES. This team is filled with amazingly talented individuals! We saw how they could play at the end of last year. Hell, we saw how they could play through MOST of last year. This year is just ugly as hell! Am I glad they haven't lost? Of course! Do I want them to play much better and show off their skill set to their full abilities? You bet your ass.
P.S. Well done, Zeke.
I would agree that the old moderated chats were the better option. But unless you're volunteering to mod those chats or to PAY for someone to mod those chats, I think current Live Chat is the best option. Having said that, I see no reason why there couldn't be a separate competing Forum Thread serving a similar purpose.
CARING about the level of play of our team... being CONCERNED that we don't have our shit together... these are emotions that are NATURAL for a human to have when they "love" something as much as we love this team. We want the best for them. We want to see them live up to their abilities. When they DON'T, we feel sadness and, yes, anger.
Your presumption is stupid... "Why would you ever care about something enough to be upset when that thing fails? Just stop caring about things!"
Go Bucks. Get better... soon.
I mean, I may be crazy here. I came late to the college game, I spent most of my youth as an NFL only fan, and in the NFL, every game is precious, and every win is a pearl of great price. Am I just misunderstanding what it means to be a college football fan? Is it just misery, win or lose? Am I the one wasting my time, enjoying wins?
Yes, you misunderstand the obvious difference between the NFL and College football. In the NFL, if you lose 4 games and win the other 12 by just 1 point each, you still make the playoffs. In the College game, if you lose 1 game, you have to be 100% convincing in all your other games to have a hope to make the playoffs. Stop being stupid. Stop saying "we won, so everything is wonderful"... it makes you sound like an idiot. If you don't learn where your problems are when you win, you're doomed to find out where they are when you lose.
I guess I missed the part where everyone was forced to take part in the Live Game Chat. I thought we were able to start our own forum threads and make comments in them as the game played... but apparently that's not allowable, now? We all HAVE to go into the Live Chat? Or could it be that you could have just stayed out of it and not been bothered? It's like you're all calling for the government to ban MSNBC or Fox News because you don't like what they're saying. This is America... if you don't like it, make your own forum thread and use that. I'm sure a lot of people would join you there.
We'll be fine as long as no one fumbles or drops an interception.
Because the alternative is Dontre Wilson... an even WORSE fumbler.
^ So much this.
I'm not gonna bitch about rankings until I see our guys actually PLAY like a #1 team. Take your Scarlet colored glasses off, and you'll realize that we're not currently playing like a #1 team. We can get there, though. I have patience.
Over/Under on number of Alabama children sacrificed in the coming week to the football gods?
Okay... will THAT do it?!
This game is BUILT for a Hail Mary win. You can just FEEL it.
DID NOT GET IT!!
BAMA BALL! LOL
This game is INSANE!
Bama dudes... that's who.
You just KNOW this is still a 'Bama win! It's not over, yet, Cow-turd!
GO FOR IT ON 4TH!
ROLL DAMN TIDE!
Cowherd is gonna have a FIELD day talking about SEC QBs on Monday.
Game over after that interception?!
Oh HELL no.
93 yards in 3:01? You know damn right! LOL
Lord, I do hate 'Bama.
This is like watching a slow motion death. You just KNOW Ole Miss is going to lose... you're just not sure HOW, yet.
Oh... thank you, Herbie.
