I wholeheartedly agree with Ethos on this subject. I very rarely submit a post but when I see something ridiculous regarding kicking a school out of a conference based upon football recruiting rankings, it irritates me. In the end, these are supposed to be institutions of higher learning. I love my Bucks as much as the next person, but let's not forget the main objective of higher education. In that regard, Purdue is still a significant contributor to the conference (and ranked substantially higher than OSU much to my dismay). http://www.bestcollegereviews.org/top-research-universities/
First Wisconsin transplant to check in. Great idea.
One of the best sci-fi films to come out in the last few years. Agreed. Visually stunning and kept me interested the entire film with the exploration into artificial intelligence. Excellent flick. I can't remember the actor's name (Inside Llewelyn Davis from the Coen Brothers), but he was outstanding in this role.
I couldn't agree more with this article. Excellent job! I'll admit that I was on the B1G bandwagon growing up and living in Columbus as I was isolated from other fanbases in the midwest. However, once I became a buckeye transplant living in Wisconsin, I saw the "other side" of the B1G. They utterly detest OSU and take great pleasure when the Bucks lose in anything. I will never pull for any B1G team other than OSU.
Completely agree. Would love to see a Louisville - UK final with the Cards taking them down. Karma.
I hate to say it but I'm pulling hard for UK to take down the cheese weasels. As a buckeye transplant living in Wisconsin since 2005 after relocating from Cbus, I never realized the absolutely insufferable badger fanbase that exists here. I miss the insulation of living in Columbus as I cannot tolerate these blowhards here. It's sad because I never gave them a second thought while living in Ohio.
What pains me the most is that I fully bought into the "Juice", Sammy Silverman fluff graphics, Mickey Marotti work out warriors schtick, etc.
Living in SE Wisconsin with a multitude of delusional cheese weasel grads, this game was one I have been waiting for since I moved here from Columbus in '05. When running weekend errands in my buckeye gear, I see a lot of head shaking and "...ugh...Ohio State...." everywhere I go. What a magnificent time to be a Buckeye.
Try living in the heart of this delusional fan base. Nothing I haven't already heard this week. The Buckeyes are an afterthought to this group. They've already penciled themselves in for the B1G title.
The delusional Wisky fans here in SE Wisconsin seem to think they're ticket has been punched to the playoff after they beat LSU. I was told that losing Miller was the equivalent of them losing Melvin Gordon for the season. I had to remind them that this is still Ohio State. They have a lot of depth at each position and it's not like they still can't win the B1G title with the talent they have stockpiled. Should be an interesting season.
You're pouring salt in an open wound. I'm still not over the Kahiki.
Agreed. I think there's little doubt regarding the best conference in College Basketball with the coaching talent involved (Matta, Izzo, Ryan, Beilein, Crean, Smith, etc.)
Thank you for this article! This is a true masterpiece. Since moving to Wisconsin from C-bus eight years ago for work, it has been difficult to stomach the ascension of Bert and his boys over the last few years as I work with a lot of badgers. This is the best summary I have seen that showcases the circumstances that were necessary for this to happen. Hopefully Urban & Co. can provide a silencing blow this fall and relegate these vermin to their rightful place in the B1G.
I second that! I will also be in line to buy a T-shirt if that is the case. Classic!

I agree. It was a nice change of pace to listen to Common Man & the Torg on TuneIn Radio online as I live in possibly one of the worst sports radio markets in the country. The personalities in Milwaukee are atrocious and I can't even listen for more than a few minutes, with the exception of Uecker and he just does Brewer games. Of course the tweet from Torg was in poor taste, but I don't believe he wished death on Howard and I feel he should have received a lenghthy suspension, but firing him seemed somewhat excessive. The Fan seems to have a problem holding on to radio personalities anyway over the last few years (Hooley, Benz,....).
56 - 21 tOSU
41-28 Buckeyes! Late garbage TD for huskers.
The locals here are pretty excited about getting some national exposure. I'm not sure if they'll have the horses to stay in this one with DT and Co.
Excellent move by UWM! I still have respect for Andy and his accomplishments at tOSU. Nice to have another Buckeye in the Brew City. A few cheese weasels are bashing the move in the local paper, but time will tell. UWM needed to make a splash and this is definitely it.
I'm with you there. Moved to Germantown (suburb of Milwaukee) seven years ago from C-bus and have developed an intense hatred of Biff Bielema and the Cheese Weasels while living here.
Agreed. Steve Harvey as AD and George F. Will as President..,
Fat Bielema is sweating cheese curds and trying to convince the NCAA that Russel Wilson should get another year of eligibility. His backup plan might be Chris Weinke or a Brandon Weeden transfer.
