I respect the program, loathe the fans.
I suppose it is entirely possible that UofM knows Harbaugh wants to stay in the NFL, but felt like they needed to show their base that they made the best possible offer/effort, hence the "leak".
Interesting that the first tweet came from "Cordale 10". Was it ever confirmed to be his?
Born and raised in NW OH, lived north of the border for the past 20 years. 90's sucked; since then, not too shabby.
Nice to see us going north of the border to take quality players versus that team up north always pilfering our blessed state.
Fanatics.com already has the # 15 home jersey for sale. $150.
These are a perfect combination of the "traditional" and the new "chrome" uni (which I happen to love).
I'm in favor of voting these in as our new permanent home uniforms.
If - and it's a big "if" - TTUN hires the "right" coach, he'll flip that program in a season or two because they have the talent and resources.
I honestly have no feel for this one. Bama is Bama, and while Cardale was lights-out last week, we're going to have to run a different offensive game plan as a result of his running ability not exactly being game-breaking. Could be a big win, could get trucked. I'm going to cheer my head off and enjoy the ride.
Gotta go with Gamble as the triple threat.
Wait, gray stripes on the sleeves! WOOT!
Also looks like the red pants stripe is now gray?
Yeah, I'll be buying that base layer t-shirt.
Oh yeah: 35-24 good guys.
Spot on. My only concern is our sloppy ball security as of late.
...nice use of "nadir" in a football game preview. (-:
We learned from last year's game that Brady does indeed understand the Rivalry. However, I think our D can be had by a smash-mouth running game that opens up moderate crossing routes to the TE and an occasional play-action deep ball. This is what I expect to see from them Saturday.
If both teams play their best, we win. If they play their best and we play a sucky game, well, I don't want to think about that.
Built on Ohio traitors
Being a complete maniac in the south stands during the '98 game; spent the entire game yelling and screaming for our D to sack Brady, only to find out later they had 10 or 11 sacks that game. Even OSU fans were telling me to sit down and shut up.
That was also the year I made mention in the Detroit Free Press for booing TTUN's band as they entered the shoe.
I guess I was a little jacked after the '95-'97 debacles.
Me too. South stands, saw that Bellisari pick coming from a mile away. Will never forget watching them celebrate with their band and fans on our field.
Considering the debacle that was the '90s vs. TTUN, I would crap my pants if we came out in these on Saturday. But I would vote for them making an appearance somewhere else down the line. Love the huge numbers.
The line doesn't matter. Rarely in my 46 years on this earth has The Game been lopsided. It happens, but not often - and usually when unexpected.
All of that being said, I think it will be 35-24 good guys, with Zeke breaking for a very late TD to get to the 35 and ice the victory. We're going to have trouble stopping their run, and getting our running game going. For all of their suckiness this year, their D has been mostly solid. Buckle your chinstraps fellas.
It's only Monday
I don't think I can survive
Until the Big One
Brady is not fit
Combs his hair with a pork chop
Put the fork in him
1975 watching Archie rumbling against UCLA. I was 7 years old and remember watching it on TV with my dad. That was it for me, been in my blood ever since.
As much as I love the traditional, understated uniforms and logos in place of all the "new hotness", I have to say that I think the latest Combat/Rivalry/Chrome OSU uniforms are outstanding. They "look" like OSU uniforms. The home jersey color is a deeper tone, the gray numbers and black lettering rock, the wide helmet stripe is tough, and who can argue with the green Buckeye leaves? And the road "Storm Trooper" look might be the best looking uni in college football.
I wouldn't mind if we kept them.
