  • SPORTS MOMENT: The 2003 Fiesta Bowl, everything else pales in comparison. That season and especially the way it ended was incredible. I had an awesome rush for two to three weeks after that game, and it was far and away the greatest sports-related moment of my life.

Look I can't stand Olberman, but he has been absolutely crushing it on this situation.

I think a lot of people here just reflexively read Olbermann's name and immediately tune out.  I can understand to a degree, as normally I find his pompous ass intolerable and avoid him as much as possible.

If you're a person who can set past impressions aside for a moment and listen to the points being made though, Olbermann is really delivering the goods here.

This has Raiders written all over it!

What's the line on Raiders picking him up in the off season as their 'big splash' free agent acquisition?

You're right, the B1G has lived up the "hype" if you want to call it that.

Were you around for the Cooper years?

Comment 07 Sep 2014

The Tressel era was a very gilded time to be a Buckeye fan.  I understand the nostalgia for the Tress years. Hell, I often think back to those great times.  The way he came in and immediately turned the rivalry on it's head was something truly special.  Buckeye Nation was suffering greatly from PSTD from a decade + of Cooper's loaded teams crapping the bed against TTUN.  The Game in both 2001 and 2002 was more of an exorcism than a football game.  Capping 2002 with the first MNC in 34yrs and the first one of my life, followed by 2 title game appearances and BCS bowls.   Oh and yeah he never took his foot of the throat of TTUN. 

Meyer has only been HC here for three seasons, so it's premature for me to judge his tenure.  It's hard for me to imagine Urban or any other coach having a decade like Tress did.  I'm glad Urban is our coach today and feel Ohio State is lucky to have him.

Yep.  This conference deserves no benefit of the doubt.  It's just shit stain after shit stain on the big stage.  Not only is the B1G terrible, it's getting worse every year.

B1G steaming pile, that's what this conference is.  There can be no defending it anymore.  All the criticisms and verbal torpedoes launched at the conference from the South and West, well, they're basically true.  If anyone still had any doubt, last night erased it.
