Not sure why this got down voted. This is pretty much spot on.
Did either of you read what was written?
So what that guy is saying is that he would be more passionate about UM if MSU didn't exist? That's like saying I would be more of a Browns fan if the Bengals didn't exist. I think the exact opposite is true.
I have noticed this narrative brewing from up north for quite a few years now. They try to act like they really don't care and in turn it makes us look like a bunch of crazies because we care so much (yes, I am aware that our fanbase has plenty of crazies). I head up to Michigan every year for Thanksgiving and spend an entire day with Michigan fans. Back in the 90's, when The Game was before Thanksgiving, I was welcomed with all sorts of trash talk and Maize and Blue. Hell, I was even greeted with an MSU flag the year OSU beat UM but lost to MSU. The level of hatred was, or at least seemed, quite equal when they were beating our ass. Now, when I try to watch The Game in front of my family members from Michigan, I am met with "wow, you guys really care about this stuff, don't you?"
I understand that our level of hatred for UM is probably more than the hatred they have for us. Especially because we only have one rival and they have to share the wealth with MSU but as long as they keep acting like they don't care as much as we do, the longer they will stay in mediocrity. And I am cool with that.
Kelly's Roast Beef has some damn good sandwiches.
Big fan of both of these
Well, that sounds like good news.
True, but it will be well worth it when Urban gets his revenge on national tv.
I'm with you. Baker definitely shied away from competition by committing to a school in the SEC...
Just consider yourself lucky that people can no longer down vote forum threads
There are certainly discussions to be had. Honestly, I just think that the uniforms in picture that you posted are the most ridiculous things that I have ever seen. In my mind, whoever created them did so as a troll attempt to make people go crazy about how ugly they are. And I, along with the vast majority (I think), have actually been quite receptive to the pro combat jerseys of year's past.
Take it easy, Bags. I don't think it is unreasonable for me to think that this post was a troll attempt when the author of said post thought those uniforms, which were remarkably done in MS Paint by 4th grader, were "kinda cool."
If it was not in fact a troll attempt and it was a genuinely created to spark a discussion then I apologize for not adding any substance to the discussion.
Shit. Urban forgot how to recruit again.
I first thought that this thread was a poor troll attempt. Then, I thought it was sarcasm. Then, I thought holy shit this guy may be serious.
No doubt. Let's just hope this means Damien Harris has chosen the good guys.
While it sucks we missed out on some guys and will potentially miss out on Baker, the overall talent in the state of Ohio this year is not what it typically is. Now, if we have similar luck next year in the state.... That would be a different story.
Jacob Coker was listed for the Maxwell... Who came up with these lists?
I'm usually the first to rag on OSU fans when I see the Schott half full but I do think the fact that it's the fourth is a huge reason why 11w isn't blowing up right now.
I know that the ND writers were the ones who leaked this info but ultimately wasn't it the ND coaching staff who leaked it? I am sure that they aren't thrilled with the decisions but let these kids have their moments.
The final score doesn't indicate how big of a play this was. I believe it was 5-3 at this point in the game. Huge momentum shift.
Unfortunately, UConn made Michigan's "Do not allow in the B1G" list. Along with Akron, Toledo, Utah and Appalachian State among many others.
Lose your two best offensive lineman from an offensive line that was one of the worst ever. My guess is that they will struggle. Defense should be better though.
Not to be a downer, but let's land Hilliard, Cornell and Baker first before we begin talking "best defensive class ever." If the next week goes as planned, then, yes, we can start having the conversation.
You just say bingo.
