Notice how a "classy" OSU fan gave you a dv for not being irrational.
I also rooted for the Cobra Kai in the Karate Kid...
Do you have proof to the contrary? Do you have proof, other than the old(you dismiss the OSU booster stuff bc its old) bagmen allegations against SEC schools? You can't dismiss someone else's claims for lack of proof when you have none yourself.
And he's not saying OSU, or really any school for that matter, is dirty...it's just the nature of the business.
I see you just can't resist, can you?
MODs - This guy is just egging stuff on...
This, SOOOOO much.
I cant even imagine this...as the father of a 2 year old myself, this makes me sick to my stomach.
The same reason why I will hire a Buckeye over a Wolverine
Well that's just a terrible way to run a business...but that's your choice.
Down voting someone is nowhere near equal to spitting in someone's face. Lets get real here...
And yes, dv'ing a UM fan on the spot is the internet equivalent of spitting in someone's face, especially when they are being polite and not causing trouble.
They're like an infestation- unwanted and irritating.
Get a grip man, it's a sports rivalry.
Like someone said before, I am puzzled as to why they are here. What's the purpose? If I want to talk about TTUN- that's your choice, but I would rather talk with fellow Buckeyes about it
What's so puzzling? If the consensus is "we don't care about UM" then why are there dozens of threads dedicated to what UM is doing? If we don't care, why are we constantly checking out Mgo just to see what they are saying, and they immediately creating a thread to talk about it? It sounds to me like a lot of ppl want to sit around and hear only what they want to hear without any regards to logic or a deferring viewpoint.
Why down vote someone who is being polite and courteous, which most UM fans who post here are? It just makes you the rest of us look bad. It's embarrassing, someone is trying to be polite and we have ppl essentially spitting in their face just bc they root for Michigan. It just perpetuates the stereotype of the lunatic Buckeye fan. We should be better than this.
Yea, I used to be in that first group, hence my 1300 DV's so I can't really speak too much without being a hypocrite(even though 80% of those DVs came in my first few years on here) but I never understood DVing a UM fan just because he's a UM fan.
What's sad is OSU fans are being downvoted in this thread for not making irrational comments about respectful UM posters.
I'm not sure I understand this post. We as OSU fans, and especially fans on this site, absolutely DO care about UM. Look at how many Harbaugh and Gary threads have been created in just the last few days by OSU fans, not UM fans. If we didn't care, you wouldn't see dozens of threads pertaining to what goes on up north. If we didn't care, you wouldn't see links to MGo created by OSU fans.
That being said, the UM fans that do post on here, are for the most part very respectful and simply offer a glimpse into the mind of the enemy. So yea, I kind of understand why they are upset about getting DV's for what in most cases are very respectful posts. Of course, there are those that come on here to stir up trouble, but as others have said, they dont last very long and THESE posters do deserve whatever ridicule comes their way.
Upvotes for the apology. If you were indeed joking, I'm also sorry for for my snarky comeback.
No, not you.
Edit - Hove answered my comment. My apologies.
Fair enough, I apologize for jumping the gun and thinking it was a shot at me.
At any rate, he's been committed since he was 14 when he was just freakishly skilled compared
That's my worry...he may have peaked too early. I hope he gets it together next year, he's always been a great ambassador for OSU.
Come on man, I'm trying to, but now I have a MOD that appears to be taking a shot at me(if I misinterpreted that statement I'll apologize).
I don't think you'll get just one example here
Hold on, are you actually implying that I am negative towards OSU?
I'll drop it, but I have a major issue if you actually think that's even remotely true.
He has almost 1400 downvotes.
SIgh, we've been through this as well.
I mean, pretty much every comment is a contrarian argument to stick up for ESPN,
This is the problem, you lack the ability to understand I'm NOT defending ESPN. I have told you, and others, MANY times that I am not a fan either. It's not my fault that you can't figure out what I am actually "defending". The "arrogance" comes from your continually calling me out on something that I've said many times is false. That's on you.
and at times bash OSU.
ONE example, please. Take your time.
Have I said ANYTHING, other than when other members called me out?
Uh oh, another person that lacks the intellect to understand I'm not actually defending ESPN. But thanks for bringing me into this, I really had no interest in this discussion.
Are you insane?
MODS - I will give ScrewTheBlue $1000 and quit the site immediately if you can prove I have more than 1 account.
Generalizations and assumptions with zero proof. A slap in the face to the hard-working staff members for OSU.
Aren't you doing the exact same thing?
Btw, Looking at your voting history, you are probably atop the leaderboard for downvotes, congrats.
Using the deflection technique.
Fair enough, but in that case shouldn't we be blaming the system and not punish the teams? Look I agree, had the playoff system been in place the last 10 years the SEC probably cuts their number of titles in half, but that doesn't mean they deserve an asterisk.
Why would I say anything about this? The responses, thus far, are pretty logical. Don't worry though, if people start saying this is part of ESPN's plan to undermine OSU I'll make another appearance
Also, didn't the MODs warn about this kind of stuff? Calling posters out by name when they haven't even commented?
