Both would be conference champions if they win. Committee puts a lot of weight on that. I think Stanford could, indeed, jump us. Not so much UNC unless they beat down Clemson.
Yes. Sparty needs to win big, one of the top 2 needs to lose and USC needs to win.
Thats a lot to ask for, but the Rose Bowl is a damn nice consolation prize.
End divisions, demand nine game conference slates, End conference championship games and go to eight teams. Florida and North Carolina are not worthy. Missouri wasn't last year. The Big 12 would be exposed.
How this ranks in my top 10: 2001, 2005, 2006,1987, 2002,1981,1978*, 2015, 2004, 1994
* a loss, but Woody and Bo -- and my first.
Real or nothing for me. I used to cut my own every year when the kids were small. Now that they are in college, i go to home depot sometimes.
Trees grow on farms. They are replenished with saplings every year so the circle of life continues. They have a smaller carbon footprint than an artificial tree. They provide jobs and livelihood for people who work on the farms.
It was cold at halftime. Quite warm midway through the 3rd until the end. Ha!
The O-H-I-O chant was louder than ever. Well-done Buckeyes!!!! They were so beaten down that they didn't really care that we were playing them for fools. This is a fan base that is totally beaten down. Those 24-years-old or less barely remember watching more than one win in the series. wow!
They are all living in the past. That's all they have.
Franklin buried a lot of 'tape' this year.
Got my tickets last night. 34th Game for me tomorrow (17-15-1).
Let's do this. Go Bucks Fuck m*chigan
I don't give a damn
I was sitting in the stands next to one of the former scum players who was out on the field before The Game He was giving me shit all day and laughing in my face when they went up 21-12 I was starting to feel like it was over, but instead I looked him in the eye and said "hmmm I think you left us just enough time." And then something magical... he looked at the clock and shut up. And that's when I knew they were frightened by us. He knew and I knew what was going to happen. Gonzo's catch was right in front of us. Perfect. The guy's kids -- now in college I guess -- cried next to me his wife looked like she would rather be coming home with me I smiled ear to ear
Go Bucks. Happy memories. Thanks for this.
it was so warm that day in 1994. remember not ever wanting to leave the stadium.
The most satisfying is always the NEXT one.
As for the past, I have been to The Game 33 times (will 34 this week) and as the clock wound down in 2009 I stood over one of the exits in their
stadium cesspool with six fingers raised while the losers filed out below me, flipping me off, tossing things at me, threatening me, etc. Sixth straight win in the series accomplished in THEIR house. THAT was satisfying. I love Jim Tressel.
FIRST worry about our opponent. Then worry about other scenarios. Go Bucks. fuck m*chigan.
Glad to revisit the 2001 Game. I have been to The Game 33 times (this week will be no. 34) and singing Carmen in THAT
stadium cesspool with the team after that win is my favorite moment. First time we ever did that. The promise fulfilled. We finally had a coach who understood the rivalry. First road win since I was on the field singing Duke of Earl while the team hoisted Bruce in. 87. And all the crap we put up with between those wins. Yeah, I teared up.
Please, push that panic button in November. My gawd.
not enough up-votes for this ^^^^
None from me. i usually don't get there until just before the game and i leave asap. Have found some good tailgates around the high school across the street
95% of all fans are respectful and the best of those dish and take a lot of verbal abuse. Physical abuse is uncalled for, and these days is not frequent because everyone has a camera, right? When that guy threatened me two years ago, half the fans pulled out their phones to get video of him. Even scUM fans. His girlfriend walked him out of the stands. He was mad at me because I was celebrating big plays and cheering for my team and quite verbal when Dontre was attacked. But I was also talking politely to the 10 year old UM fan and his grandfather in front of me during tv timeouts. (Everything in perspective) That guy just Needed a nap and missed a helluva game (he would have punched me for sure after that missed conversion).
I love looking at their faces after we beat them down. Joy.
Jim Tressel. THE MAN.
RESPECT for schemechler? That's a good one.
F him. F m*chigan.
Yeah I was at The Game in. 86 and I will be there on Saturday. Earle had a comfortable lead at halftime and then played not to lose in the second half. We see where that leads.
F harbaugh!!!!! his fucked-up face sits with Kolesar and Biakabatuka and Woodson and Howard on my Mount Rushmore of hate.
Go Bucks F m*chigan .
OH, and I am driving 11 hours each way. Worth it.
This will be my 34th Game. 17 times in that cesspool. I hate that place. Once helped an elderly OSU fan (woman) after she was pushed down the stairs by ttun fans. I was 30 rows up when Desmond did his pose. Was out on the field when Earle was carried off, saw the 2001 promise fulfilled (cried that day); was almost punched 2 years ago and WAS punched and threatened to be thrown off the top in 1981(art the dart's dance into the end zone that day was a thing of beauty). I will be there I must getting close to the point where I will have seen 1/3 of them my goal is to see half before I die.
Go Bucks My glass is half full.
I kid. Take heart chuck. It was a bad game that is behind us, and now Gold Pants are on the table. Legacies are made by how you play THIS week in THIS game. No one is looking ahead or behind. That will help.
There is lots of football yet to be played. If last week showed anything, it showed that no team is safe from an upset or comeback or throttling. Just win.
