These three are terrible...but "Boiler Up" makes me want to throw my head into a wood chipper.
Johnny, Eeyore would not appreciate you comparing him to the B1G. No question he is the most elite Pooh Sticks player in the Hundred Acre Wood and dominates with quiet confidence.
These two schools have the best fball and bball coach combos in the Big Ten and are up there for the entire country. This rivalry is just getting started and I'm going to watch every friggin minute of it in both sports.
He's recruiting Red Lightning hard.
I knew the B1G was solid in wrestling but I didn't know there were 10 B1G teams in the top 25. That is total dominance.
Chris, I like your take on making MSU a one dimensional team. If we can nullify their running game like we have been able to do to most of the B1G this year, then it will give our line a chance to get after Cook and make him look like a first year starter. We need to get after the QB and put him on the ground early and often.
I am currently living in New York City and it is refreshing how the SEC bias hasn't really become part of the psyche of people here. College sports aren't followed very closely in NYC, so most of my friends and coworkers that were born and raised here don't know the difference and just appreciate wins and straight domination. They see OSU dominating week in and week out and OSU players all over the NFL, so to them it translates to a great program.
As for the game, it's nice that regardless of what the "college football world" thinks of us, this game determines who will be in the BCSNC and everyone will be watching. You got Mike Slive campaigning on Mike & Mike this morning because he knows that the SEC will probably get locked out if we win on Saturday. Not gonna lie, hearing the desperation in his voice put me at half staff.
Excited to see what these guys bring to the NFL.
I don't wish injury on anyone...but I would be pretty content if Archie's consecutive Heismans hold up.
Although the rivalry is probably bigger for PSU than it is for us, mainly because we have the edge 14-8 in head-to-head matchups, I still consider it a rivalry on par with Wisconsin. Maybe it's my hatred for Pittsburgh and the surrounding area (I know State College is pretty far away from Pittsburgh, but most PSU fans I've met are also Steelers fans) or maybe it's that we've had numerous memorable games with them over the past decade, but either way it is a game that I get excited for regardless of how good PSU is. Add on the fact that Tressel dominated Michigan and didn't dominate Penn St, the OSU-PSU game has been more relevant than the OSU-UM game many a time. Michigan will always be a bigger rivalry, but PSU is a two-way rivalry for sure. Screw Pennsylvania. Long live Ohio.
