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.)
Ohio State 47
Hard for me to choose. Growing up in C-bus, I always pulled for both teams and still do. It's different with the Browns/Bengals as they're in the same division.
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 just spit coffee all over myself. Thank you!
I second that! I will also be in line to buy a T-shirt if that is the case. Classic!
Epic! Living in cheeseland, this ballad is near and dear to my heart. Nice work!
It was Penn St for me until I moved to Milwaukee 7 years ago. I could tolerate Biff Bielema and the cheeseheads the first couple of years, but especially since 2010 my life at work has been unbearable during football and basketball season. They can be quite obnoxious most of the time.

Nice! Thank you Turtle Man.
Agreed. I couldn't stomach going into work a week from Monday if Biff pulls the victory next Saturday. The delusional Badger fans would never shut up. They still believe that they would have beaten Alabama with Russell Wilson last year.
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,....).
Excellent post! We need to really appreciate this team for what it is. This is a team with a lot of heart and not a tremendous amount of talent but they go all out every game. Definitely one of my favorite Buckeye teams. What a ride it has been so far!
56 - 21 tOSU
Buckeyes win another shoot out... 56-42 with another suspect performance from this _efense. The silver BBs are overmatched at this point.
Agreed. A Herbstreit-Nessler combo would be the best possible team that ESPN/ABC could put together. I think Nessler is the easiest on the ears in CFB.
41-28 Buckeyes! Late garbage TD for huskers.
