most games have been noon or near noon or early afternoon.kickoffs. the 3:30 start in '06 had me as a basket case all afternoon leading up to that and by 3:30  I was still processing logic, but by 7:00 I was trashed and passed out by 9:30 that night.

No, once it is repeated so many times, it is no longer a trap game.

VT was a "tranny trap" game. It was supposed to be one thing but once we go into it? It was entirely different, and in a BAD way.

I would be totally lost on Saturday afternoons if I did not have Ohio St.-- and, by extension, college football to follow. But I am not very handy around the house, either.  Thank God I am a Buckeye, Ohio born and still live here.

Yeah, the 90's were the best for numerous reasons, not to mention that decade had me in my prime at age17-27. I remember the old Gameday shows when they mostly aired from the ESPN studio and it was a special occasion when the crew went on the road. Special except for d-bag Craig James was with them then. Much more football talk and interesting bits with much less grandstanding and oevrall BS, i.e. Katy Perry as guest predictor.

You can almost hear her taking a drag from a USA Gold between sentences.

Sorry, I wear Blue and Yellow every Friday night. The town that I live in and the high school team that I follow has colors almost identical to Michigan. Most of my summer T-shirts, shorts are Blue and gold for that same reason. Don't be dumb about colors, they are just that, colors. Once Saturday comes along I am all scarlet and gray.

Hoke will finish the season and return next year as coach for the TTUN as long as AD Dave Brandon is around. Brandon is a control freak and guy that will not let go of the past. Brandon sits in on team meetings, coaches meetings, etc. Hoke is his puppet.

I do not get CBS sportsnetwork. I guess that is a big plus since I am going to the game in need to tangle with cable companies.

My concern with that is the Buckeye offense will become too predictable if Braxton Miller comes back late in the season as a one-dimensional, running QB. Not to mention he would take an even bigger beating without the threat of a pass. Think Denard Robinson in the 2nd half of 2012, that did not work out well for TSUN. If the press release says BM is out for the season, then he is out for the season. A redshirt is really his only option, unless he wants to go to Canada or the arena league after his eligibilty expires after this year. If his draft stock wasn't high enough to go pro after this past season, it is basically non-existent now.

Went to 2 games that season, the UC game where Santonio Holmes bailed Justin Zwick out on about every pass he threw.

The other was what I consider the coming out party for the Great Teddy Ginn. We went to the Mich. St. game in E. Lansing and saw Ginn score 3 TD's, 3 different ways. A run on a reverse, a punt return and a reception on a pass from Troy Smith. The guy sitting behind me  (MSU fan) was trashed and and early in the 2nd quarter was removed from the game by an usher and his wife/ girlfriend sat there and cried the rest of the half and left at halftime.

Let's hope Sparty fans are crying this year once we get finished with them. 

2004 will not be remembered as a great season but the Buckeyes outscored the 2 Mich. teams 69-40.

I remember seeing my first Robin Williams movie when I was 8 years old when he played "Popeye" along side Shelly Duvall. Not his best work, but at the time i thought it was great.

My favorite Robin Williams movies are: 1. Good Morning, Vietnam    2. Dead Poets Society     3. Mrs. Doubtfire- a very underrated movie (IMO)

I went to Happy Valley in 2007 for the night game with a small group of guys. Tailgated all day and into the evening, Early on fans were fairly tolerable (though not friendly) and as the evening went on many Nittany Lion fans became verbally abusive bordering on physically abusive. We were dressed in Ohio St. gear and doing OSU cheers (but nothing offensive, this is pre-Sandusky scandal so the only thing to use against Penn St. fans was the fact their HC pooped his pants on national TV against Ohio St. the year before.)  What got me was the dearth of Ohio St. fans there that night. It seemed like 99% of folks there were Penn St. fans. They do not like to sell tickets to opponents fans, either. I have been to every B1G stadium except Iowa, and have always paid less for tickets on the road than I would have paid for a game at the Horseshoe. We kicked their ass that night so during the game and postgame all was quiet.

A couple of other tips for going to "Happy" Valley:

  • If you are staying the night, book a room now, there are very few places to stay (we stayed in nearby Clearfield)
  • Bring beer/ alcohol with you. The only place to buy booze in Penn. is at the state liquor store and there is one in Happy Valley and it is hard to find. If you are wearing Ohio St. colors people will give you wrong directions if you ask where it is.
  • eat at Denny's Beer Barrel Pub.

hope this helps

Besides Ole Miss, what school would consider Mississippi St. a rival? Whoever that may be they could really put it to Miss. St. by cutting the State part off of their name and just calling them "Mississippi". That would be an epic putdown. Has a school ever tried/ thought of that before?
