He isn't comparing it to PSU... He is referencing the fact that Gibbons gagged several field goals in the PSU game, which led to scUM losing. Had he not been playing, perhaps they would have won.
You clicked on this item and were apparently interested enough to read it and comment on it...
As a proud graduate of The Ohio State University myself, I welcome discussion on all things Ohio State.
Serious case of unfounded superiority complex by Cal...
They got their ass handed to them on their field, the fans of a University located thousands of miles away outnumbered their fans, our band puts their band to shame...pretty much we showed them what big time football is about. End result...a serious case of butt hurt.
They should be thanking Ohio State and their fans for the lesson and for pumping in a load of cash into their broke ass state. Berkeley is a complete dump, there are bums everywhere (but they are sometimes hard to spot because they look/smell like many of the locals), and there are a ton of run-down buildings/businesses. California as a whole is pretty much looking at Detroit as a financial model. And the fact that so many people from Ohio could afford to make the trip out to the "Great" State of California tells me that a lot of Buckeyes are doing OK for themselves without a "superior" education from Cal.
Perhaps the most hilarious piece from their elitist spew was taking a shot at Stanford by saying that at least Cal fills their stadium....Yeah, they filled their stadium with 50% (or more) opposing fans. I'm sure just as many OSU fans would have attended a game in Stanford...and the Cardinal would have actually given us a game!
You not being able to explain why OSU kept him is a YOU problem. You, like many others, base your opinions solely on these superfluous issues. Gee's accomplishment as President at OSU have been tremendous on virtually every front. He has greatly improved OSU's academic standing, raised a ton of money, improved facilities, led the long overdue shift to semesters, forged many beneficial partnerships, and so much more. So he is a top performer in all areas that are important for a university president...that is why OSU kept him.
The fact that he isn't an "expert" on sports and he makes frequent, sometimes off color, remarks while trying to get a laugh doesn't outweigh his accomplishments. People who give too much weight to athletics, and who are far too concerned about outsiders taking shots at OSU are the only ones that fail to see Gee for the blessing he is/was to OSU.
As an OSU grad, and someone who has met the man a few times, I have no problem saying that Gordon Gee was the best thing to happen to Ohio State in the last 100 years. Where the university is now, versus where it was before Gordon Gee entered the picture is nothing short of amazing.
I think you are thinking about Christian Bryant...pretty sure he led the world in 15 yard penalties last season.
Yeah, when you see vehicles parked in the grass about 20 yards from the end zone, it sort of takes a little of the shine off...not exactly big boy football.
On another not, those vehicles would have had multiple football sized dents if Joe Bauserman were playing QB in that game.
Welcome aboard, young man! Can't wait to see you on the field for the Buckeyes. Here is hoping that he becomes the next great OSU defensive back, following the likes of Springs, Winfield, Doss, Gamble, Roby, etc.
So, you are saying that Hoke lost his appetite over this?
No, but if you are going to be owned you may as well be owned for more money.
If Simon has 29 tackles I like our chances :)
In all seriousness, I would like to see him have about 5 tackles for loss. Our D line needs to be disruptive and push the line of scrimmage back.
I'm guessing you got the down vote for insulting trolls. Trolls don't deserve that sort of abuse!
Yeah, not much mystery about who slapped a down vote on that :). The truth hurts!
Thanks for having my back.
Go Bucks, Michigan sucks!
There is a difference between coaching a team and being a fan of the team. Obviously, being the head coach at Michigan is a desirable position for anyone in the coaching profession. What Meyer said he doesn't get is a person born and raised in Ohio becoming a fan of "that team up north".
A vast majority of people that are in that category are contrarians, not very educated, and not very knowledgeable about the sport. They are mostly the poster children for the "Wal-Mart Wolverine" clan.
Didn't watch the whole video...as I am over the flash mob scene and the gangnam craze. It appeared to be at the Ohio Union, not Ohio Stadium.
I echo the comments above...I came here for a temporary escape from the depression of last night's results. I purposefully avoided news sites, and the first thing I see here is a reminder of the sequel to the disaster movie that is Barack Obama's presidency.
Wow, it appears that you've downed a whole case of the kool-aid!
I don't think the offense is going to be a well-oiled machine right out of the shoot, especially given the absence of Jordan Hall. And there are a lot of question marks on the defensive side, especially at linebacker.
I think both units will be strong mid-year, but I don't share your apparent belief that we are looking at the 2002 defense combined with the 2006 offense.
I think we'll see some good, some bad, and some ugly on Saturday with a lot of players seeing action. I'm thinking something in the range of 37-13.
OSU needs to fire Gene Smith...YESTERDAY!
And someone needs to delete his Youtube account. At least he didn't post a Youtube video to address the violation he committed and posted on Youtube.
SEC Underpants Gnomes are known to be the fastest in the business.
It's filled with replacement national championship trophies. The van is dispatched to Wal-Marts to replace broken trophies that are dropped by unwashed SEC fans.
So you are assuming that it's a 12 passenger van filled to capacity with SEC fans and/or "student" athletes....
Hopefully Sully and the boys come out with a purpose tonight and get this thing headed in the right direction. Need to get the attitude adjusted after a lackluster performance against Purdue and a pathetic showing (except for Craft) against Sparty.
Pick up a solid win tonight and prepare to hand scUM their first home loss this weekend!
What a sad situation. What should have been one of the best days of this kids life (signing a LOI to play major college football) will instead be spent in a courthouse facing a judge.
I hope for his part that the charges aren't true, but if they are I hope he gets nailed with the max sentence.
I believe new rankings come out on Mondays, so we will not move up prior to the Michigan game. Hopefully we put a healthy beatdown on the skunk bears and that propels the Bucks to #2 in the next poll.
Good call...the "Showdown in the Shoe" is scheduled for April 21st at 11:00 vs. Air Force. That all but confirms that the Spring Game will be on April 21st.
I can't wait...may make that my 4 year-old's first trip to Ohio Stadium.
Actually, in most years it has been the second to last Saturday in April. Which would be consistent with it being held on the 21st this year.
