After leaving the grueling life of a rodeo clown, I ventured back to the land of Ohio, where I re-planted my flag, grew a thriving business, and then joined a fast growing local publishing firm. I have a healthy respect for bulls.

Nebraska beat MSU, but also lost the game before that one to Purdue. Prior to that, they lost to Northwestern. Your statement did imply the transitive property, as if to say "Nebraska beat MSU, so they are pretty good." You were attempting to refute the previous poster's statement about Riley being a bad hire. His being able to get a win over Sparty doesn't cancel out the other 6 losses they have.

Food for thought - tho Auburn's D somehow sucks (will muschamp, defensive guru? My ass), theirs is also a rivalry game. And if Derrick Henry lays a bit of an egg in that game, Zeke's opening is there. If he and the Oline (and coaches!!) can take advantage of it, and he goes off against *eatchicken, he's right back in the hunt.

I followed the advice of our benevolent leader and bought a bottle of early times. Here's something fun I discovered - just sprinkling a little cinnamon powder into my class and stirring it - divine. I even like the little powdery texture. It's best neat, ice makes the powder clump.

Yeah, because a loss to the other OSU in their rivalry game means the Big 12 is likely out of the playoff, I'm rooting for OSU in that game, too. If Ok St were to get the win, ND would need to lose, Michigan State and Iowa would need to lose, and/or Clemson losing to NC is what it would take to get the Big 12 champ in there. There's also the chance that Bama could lose to Auburn or Florida.

That would be classic! 

Since he's likely to take a HC job somewhere, he'll be hired some time in December, to have a chance to finish up Md or whoever's recruiting class. Md does seem like an intriguing job, but I'd say Illinois, So Carolina and Mizzu, and probably another dozen destinations could be possible for him. He'll likely benefit from a bidding war of sorts, if he interviews for multiple jobs.

The line had its problems, for sure, but if you read Kyle's breakdown of the offense, and/or go back and watch the game again, JT had a lot of problems with not letting the ball fly early when he had guys open, and not making proper reads. As is usually the case with poor offense or defense, the answer is usually a combination of breakdowns. The execution was poor, the play calling did not do the players any favors, and MSU's defense did their part in shutting down a predictable offense.

For various reasons, JT did not have a very good game against MSU.

If you read the above, the center very well could have, and should have, been called for false start. He was moving the ball before the snap.

The funny thing is that so many of these sports talking heads are so easy to figure out. Danny went to FSU, therefore regularly shows his bias based on that affiliation. Most of them do. It's actually rare to see a "journalist" or former player turned media mouth who's able to actually keep their school affiliation out of their commentary.

Sports reporting has very few actual journalists these days.

Unless MSU loses to State Penn. Then the winner of the Game wins the East. The Game will never, ever have less meaning, regardless of whether a championship is at stake. Bragging rights matter.

Are you new to this whole Buckeye fandom thing?

Yeah, the asshats are the outliers. Cruising on 11W this weekend showed me that the majority of us get it. There's a stupid minority in any population, and they're often loud. Don't mistake those idiots as representatives of Buckeye Nation.
