I clicked on this thread purely to see what/if BassDropper responded! Haha
I agree, Hove!
People counting the BasketBucks out after some tough early losses is akin to everyone discounting the whole B1G after a tough weekend in September. There is a lot of basketball to be played this year!
I would guess he jumped down a division to avoid having to sit out for a year due to transferring.
Everything I've seen and heard from Cardale within the last 2 months or so has just made me love him more and more. He's seriously creeping up the list of my all time favorite Buckeyes, and that's saying something.
Especially after three starts!
All I could think of from this comment:
deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.
The answer to your query is in the definition you quoted. You cannot tell me that Cardale's "life-changing announcement" tweet was not intended to provoke an emotional response. And did it disrupt the normal conversation on ESPiN and 11w? You betcha. That's trolling 101.
To be clear, though, I am not using this word in a negative sense. Pro trolling like what Trolodale pulled off yesterday, that's an art form. Much like running over DTs like like it's nothing.
I'm glad for Brandon that he found a job that doesn't require him to shoot a basketball... Man, it seemed like he was on the BasketBucks for about 6 years, and could have definitely built a mansion from all those bricks.
Seriously, Cardale trolling literally everyone in the sporting world yesterday makes me love him even more. I did not think that was possible.
And he knew exactly what he was doing! "Why'd you guys make such a big deal out of this?"
All I hear when he says that is trololololololololol.
Long live King Dolodale!
I agree-- I've never believed the hype about XBrax leaving. I think he's an OSU guy through and through.
I truly hope someone he respects can talk with him about the wisdom of switching to H-Back/Slot Receiver... We could be scary good with a backfield of 12 Gauge, Zeke, and XBrax. #embarrassmentofriches
I see what you did there... Bravo, sir!
I don't even need to see the byline anymore. The picture usually gives it away. Haha
No judgments to pass, JeffCo, as the day after the Buckeyes won it all in 2003 was a Saturday. I remember it well, because I was in middle school at the time and thought it was pretty awesome that the Championship Game took place on a non-school night, meaning that I was definitely allowed to stay up for all of its double overtime glory.
Although, to be honest, I don't think there's any way my parents would have kept me from staying up, school or no school.
That is a thing of beauty. Bravo!
Absolutely loved Tressel's least favorite moment! And this whole article! I always look forward to the "Debriefing," and it never disappoints. Thank you, Citro!
"What if I told you that a team could lose to an unranked team at home by double digits, and still win the national championship?"
I just finally made it here to read all of this-- long day of class and work (while exceedingly hungover, to boot)-- and all I can say is, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
UPVOTES ALL AROUND!!!!
I just got to that part in re-watching the game with the Film Room broadcast (side note: that broadcast is awesome!). I agree that that was huge.
Also seemingly huge at the time? The no-call on the Oregon player seemingly gauging Michael Bennett's eyes, while Bennett got penalized for having the audacity to defend himself. Oregon, as a team, seemed pretty classy, but that was just a classless move by that O-Lineman.
DubJay, if you're still in need, my awesome wife thought to buy several extras when she got one for us (did I mention how awesome she is??)
Just let me know if you're still in need and I can for sure help you out!
And THAT is why we won. That's dedication, Mr. Green. I applaud you!
Delt, I believe Cal was wryly referencing how Tyvis calls Cardale his son.
And from that Championship, many, many fires emerged.

Alright, I'll go ahead and create a forum topic to discuss this further!!!1!1
I'm glad I'm not the only one having this problem! Thought my browser was screwed up.
I realize that I'm late to the party, and I don't want to overstate the case, but clearly, God heard and answered your prayers, Rusty!
GO BUCKS!!! And get home safely, Deacon! :)
