Illinois has won 7 of their last 11 in the shoe. And from 1988 - 1994 they won 6 out of 7. This makes me feel disgusting. After the 2006 game I want to crush them so hard every time.
I feel like it would make everything easier if everyone would follow my simple idea: If you wish to portray something as sarcastic or otherwise insincere, surround it with money signs
$You are SO awesome$
I feel like this is a super cliche thing to say, but I feel like Ohio State has a habit of playing to the level of their competition. Have for years. Now that may have something to do with the opponent having the mindset of "We have to play our best game in order to take down the big dog", or if it's the Bucks thinking "We can skate through this week, we are the big dog". But even against high quality opponents (save 1.8.06) they seem to up their game.
Maybe this is naive, but it's an idea...I am sure they all see this as a big game, so I predict the get pretty amped up for it and play well...
This short, quick passing game reminds me a lot of a Troy smith led offense in 2006. Basically quick extended handoffs to get the ball quickly to your playmakers in space. It doesn't look nearly as polished as that did, but holy smokes, next year could be a repeat of that season, but hopefully with a better ending...
Anyone else miss the BAUSERBOMBS!?!?!
yeah me neither....Let's get a big first half lead and KEEEEEEEPPPPP IIIITTTTT
I really hope this is kinda the start of a hate/hate relationship between two of the most storied college football programs in history.
I could deal with another intense rivalry. It almost seems wrong to hate on PSU (even though I will NEVER forget the fateful trip to Happy Valley in '05...), so we could use a substitute.
It's weeks like this that make me nostalgic about being hungover, hoarse, and sore on Sunday mornings...
I can only think of these when talking about Fragles:
Sorry about the A2 reference...had to get it out of my head. But they are DELICIOUS!
Can we please stop referring to every controversial thing that happens as some kind of "_____-gate"?
We don't need to reference it as 'tat-gate' or 'bounty-gate', or joe paterno's 'pooped-pants-gate'. By that reasoning the actual watergate was a scandal involving water, not a hotel.
No real suggestions on changes, just a minor pet peeve...
I REALLY hope that the playbook opens up this week. Not sure if I am delusionally optimistic, but I always think they really keep things closed down for the OOC schedule.
Man I hope that is right. Otherwise = Sparty 35 Bucks 9
This was released within the last week.
Was this post a troll?!
Good to know, thanks.
Not sure how I missed that, but thank you for the info. Tough stance to take, but I will gladly wait a few extra weeks.
I have an osumb flag flying at my house.
And I don't think Norwood technically counts as Cincinnati...even though it is.
Blue Goose then? Righto. See you there...
I am actually a transplant to Cincinnati altogether, born and raised in the great state of Texas.
I have been to the Oak for a game, and was underwhelmed. I have been to the Blue Goose before, but not for a Buckeye game. That was the go to spot for my paramedic class after finishing an exam or final. Great little sports bar. I guess I will have to make it there!
Thanks a bunch everyone! I'll be there, the one with the jersey from the OSU marching band.
I can't tell you how happy your profile picture makes me.
I don't think 'robbed' is an adjective at all....
