"Michigan Men led by a baby in a diaper." What a perfect description. Why is the TTUN fan base so proud of him?
He did that in the 2Q? He's gutsy, gotta hand him that.
Thank you for this. It was very moving and incredible to relive that unbelievable Game again.
Agree with this completely. Only I would prefer Oklahoma vs. the Cowboys because this would further increase the value of Ohio State's OOC slate.
That is a perceft description of a delusional state. And the irony of the matter is that by consigning the reasons for their failure to a sphere beyond their control, they preclude any possibility of improvement. It is a Cartesian circle of sorts serving to prolong their agony and destitution indefinitely.
Agreed, but that is the sickness from which most of the TTUN fan base suffers. They think trash talking and declaring themselves the best is enough. No need to work hard and go show it on the field like the Buckeyes do anew every year. Then they get frustrated and wonder why they come up short every time.
I know the recruitment of Vonn Bell and Raekwon McMillan were outstanding, but I am inclined to think that the Baron Browning recruitment is Coach Meyer's finest work so far as a Buckeye.
A DV for this? Gotta be a fat-finger misfire.
The TTUN faithful try to spin his tantrums as an endearing character trait or as a sign of "real zeal". Actually, they are childish and a humiliation to his team and school.
Awesome comment. Funny AND true.
Only it's exactly those kids from Ohio like Taco that got TTUN in a position to compete for a conference crown to begin with. Hmmm. Maybe TTUN fans simply haven't connected to reality yet?
I may be wrong, but if I read between Hocutt's lines correctly, the following seems likely: 1) Ohio State is in barring some crazy developments this weekend. The current #2 ranking, the statement that "OSU and PSU are not close" and the affirmation that strong OOC games are irrelevant if they do not mean something = Buckeyes are in; it is only a matter of seeding. 2) TTUN is out. While TTUN does hold a #5 ranking, the B1G CG participants are (I believe) ranked at #6 and #7, respectively. It seems to me that the winner with another top 10 victory would jump idle TTUN. Yes, TTUN would have the head-to-head, but Hocutt expressly stated that this is not the definiing criteria. In that case, it would seem that the conference championship would trump the head-to-head.
Or am I missing something?
That gif in this thread is so cool for so many reasons.
Good to see you back, 305. I have not seen you in a while. Thanks for the info.
A serious note on Harbaugh: As a head coach one is (among many other things) an ambassador to one's university. Behave disgracefully and it reflects poorly on the entire program.
You'll love it there. Let me know when you land!
All part of what it means to be a Wolverine.
Mighty kind offer. I live in Hannover in northern Germany. Write me a line if you are in my area and we will raise a glass to this great team. By the way, I went to law school in Chicago before I got a job abroad. That is a great city. You are lucky to be able to live there (except for the winters).
You, sir, are a genius.
Peppers is an utter embodiment of all that school stands for: a loser and a coward. He should spend some time in a Columbus jail for battery.
I agree with this mightily. Watching Harbaugh cry during the post-game was like watching a hammer of justice fall ... Also, one of the greatest Buckeye teams I have seen (damn MSU).
If you guys were in my neighborhood, it would be my pleasure to share a glass of my most prized single malt with you. Hard not to be extremely proud of this team.
Mr. K 0-5 vs. the Buckeyes? Couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy.
Nervous wreck, ecstatic, elated, in awe ... I am a lawyer and cannot believe that I am actually at a loss for words. My 30-year old scotch is on deck. Anything else would be an insult to this incredible effort. What a day to be a Buckeye!
Harbaugh's ploy is quite obvious, I think. He understands that perception often is worth more than reality in college football. He is pulling out all the stops to generate the appearance that TTUN is "back", and ethically-upstanding behavior be damned. His hope is that enough athletic kids will be fooled by the perception of TTUN's "return to glory" to actually want to be a part of that corrupt cesspool. His ploy is that he will attract enough talent to actually make his system work before the general public awakes to reality and the smoke screen of "greatness" his antics, ploys, lack of loyalty to his recruits / players, corrupt job-giving and unwarranted media love have created is dispelled.
The best way to smash his plan, of course, is to expose him for the whiny, self-entitled weakling he is. I am sure Coach Meyer will have this in mind when preparing for the Game.
