The local FOX affiliate isn't "proper journalism"?
Ever read the Skull Sessions?
Hopefully all the noise ends after 15 seconds.

LOL @ "the SEC narrative." They're the best conference in college football, bar none. OSU could play with absolutely any of them, but on the whole that conference is miles better than the Big Ten.
We've had the vastly - VASTLY - superior team the last two years. We won by a combined 6 points. I will never NOT be worried.
Sports fans are hypocrites. A questionable practice is heinous and evil unless my team does it, in which case it's reasonable. We are obviously not immune, considering our fan base has a significant amount of overlap with Cavs fans, who treated LeBron James like a combination of Jesus, Gandhi, and Muhammad Ali ... until he left to play for another team, and they decided to curse his name and burn his jersey ... until he came back, and they celebrated as if they had already won a title. This is not surprising at all.
The tautology is strong with this one.
This picture is further proof of Perry's awesomeness. There's a running joke in SEC country that LSU fans smell like corndogs. She pulled that out when they were doing picks and got to the LSU game. She rules.
They've played an absolutely brutal schedule, that's how. Four of their five losses are to teams currently ranked in the top 14 of the selection committee's rankings (and in the one loss to a team outside the rankings, they led by 14 points on the road in the 4th quarter and lost in OT). They've got two wins against teams currently in the committee's top 25. That's exactly the same number as Ohio State.
Fuck and yes.
the importance of a teams record is being diminished because a team "looks like the real deal"
Unfortunately, almost all of OSU's argument to make the playoffs is that they "look like the real deal," because the schedule is garbage and the VT loss is abominable.
I firmly believe FSU should be ranked first for three reasons; 1. They are the reigning champs. 2. They haven't lost a game. 3. To be the champ, you have to beat the champ
1. Last year's team is not this year's team. 2. Neither has Marshall. 3. Last year's team is not this year's team.
Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself. I will restrict myself in no way.
Did the third Akron kid try to pull a Panenka?
This was posted in a forum labeled "anything else." Description: "Offtopicland. This still isn't the place to discuss politics, religion, or hot-button social issues, however." This is "offtopic." It does not involve politics, religion, or hot-button social issues, unless one somehow believes "you probably shouldn't rape people" is a hot-button social issue. It was perfectly fine to post this here.
the dream is for the long shot of the SEC getting left out of the playoff somehow
There is basically a zero percent chance of this happening. Don't even bother rooting for it. Root for Mississippi State to roll through the conference and be their only representative.
It's on the resume and it's not going anywhere. Need to accept that and move on.
What I intensely dislike is flat-out dishonesty. The title of this forum post says that Fiutak claimed OSU is "no better than they were on September 6." That is not at all what he said, but it's framed that way on here because there is apparently nothing OSU fans like more than feeling like victims.
The title of this post is completely false. Fiutak did not say that in that video. All he said was that the VT loss is still there and doesn't "go away" because OSU beat MSU. He said OSU is "very good" but that they haven't beaten anybody other than Michigan State. He's right.
Well thought out and entirely accurate, BBB.
This post is a massive amount of bullshit. This site isn't anywhere close to a "MSU 247 board."
In the game score prediction thread, fully 86.7% of respondents picked OSU to win, by an average score of 29-21. Does 87% of respondents picking OSU to win sound like "a sparty homer forum"? And not only that, but nine of the eleven people who had the temerity to pick Michigan State got downvotes for their troubles, even if all they posted was a score prediction with no commentary.
Just because a ludicrously small percentage of OSU fans think there's a chance MSU might win doesn't make them "fake fans" and it sure as shit doesn't make this a "sparty homer forum." Take off your own insane homer glasses before casting stones at others.
My bad, Hodge.
I was optimistic earlier in the week, too. As the game approaches, though, I just can't get that PSU game out of my head. I really thought the team had turned a corner and went into that game feeling really good about our chances. That big, wet dump the offense laid on the field (under 250 total yards in regulation?) has me really worried about Saturday night. Hope to hell I'm wrong.
