I don't even go to the in-game threads anymore. I'm going to try and be nice and attribute a lot of it to too much "game prep" coupled with unrealistic expectations. IU has one of the best backs in the country and a bunch of other guys on scholarship like ours. Better talent at tOSU, sure. But the elite teams better bring it every week cuz the differences aren't that huge. 

Minnesota is looking a lot more legit, too, aren't they?

I think that's a plan I'm going to adopt, Chitown.

One thing about 11W is the (usually) balanced assessments from the majority of the commentariat. Certainly the Buckeye fans that picked MSU to win were not being "bad" Buckeye fans, just realistic given our youth, the venue (East Lansing at night) and what transpired last year. There's a difference between a cogent, well-reasoned analysis that states, "This is why I believe MSU will win", while still hoping your favorite team comes out on top, and being a "bad" Buckeye.

To me, the "bad" Buckeye fans were the "lunatic fringe" (to borrow from Pink Floyd) dumping on the lads in the first quarter Saturday night; calling Dontre a "bum" (get well, Dontre!), saying Hermann should go, and, just for old times' sake, "Fire Fickell!"

Totally agree, MrGreen. Nothing wrong with pointing out that someone else may be a better option at a position - that's what we fans do, isn't it; coach from the couch? But ad hominems directed at 19 year old young men is juvenile at best. I was amazed/appalled/pissed-off at some of the crap being thrown around on the in-game thread, too - at least early-on. I'll try and stay positive by attributing most of it to people "prepping" for the game all day with various mind-altering substances.

The comments at Mgoblo after that awesome offensive display at NU are hilarious. I think Ace over there (yes, that guy) coined the term "M00N" game because the score for most of it was 0-0, bracketed by the scUM logo and the NU logo on ESecPN's in-game score board. (Sorry I can't link to it - having computer issues.)

I know it's a day early, but I'm going to be out-of-pocket tomorrow; wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the Veterans and those still serving like BuckeyeChief -- a HUGE "U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!" and "Go Bucks!" to all of you!

Well, 'Dude, the feeling is mutual - at least on my part. I always root for MSU against scUM. And, yes, I respect Sparty a great deal, for many of the reasons mentioned. Do I want us to curb stomp them, take their broken teeth and shove 'em down their throats? Hell yes!

Migos definitely better than the Beatles.

Excuse my ignorance, but this is the first time I've ever heard of these guys. Also, I tried reading the article to see if they actually make that claim - couldn't get through much more than 5 or 6 paragraphs. But, seriously, DJ, in what other dimension/universe are these dudes better than the Beatles? I once heard some teeny bopper try to say that New Kids were better than the Beatles "'Cuz, like, they can dance, y'know? Like..." LMFAO! Yeah, New Kids certainly changed music the way John, Paul, George and Ringo did. You can still see their influence ... on other boy bands! Maybe they're the Beatles of rap. Or am I missing something here - a little tongue-in-cheek, fuel-on-the-fire from our favorite Skully writer? To paraphrase a Beatles' hit: "(We love) you, yeah, yeah, yeah", but c'mon, man!!

I do agree we win tonight, 37-21. Go Bucks!

*Sniffs away tears at the virtuosity of BuckeyeVet's post*

You have distilled the essence of the rivalry down perfectly for the youngsters. You and I are a year apart, age-wise. I remember crying after the 1969 game when we were on course to repeat as National Champions. That, of course, was the beginning of the 10 Year War and this game's evolution into "THE Game". If you didn't experience the crushing disappointment of watching a team loaded with NFL talent regularly poop-the-bed against scUM, it is difficult to understand why many of us would love it if the skunk weasels never won another game in the rivalry. As an added bonus, their fans were even more insufferable asses than usual during that time - schadenfreude is a very addictive feeling!

The first step in scUM at least attempting to return to national prominence. They have a very large hurdle - in more ways than one - to overcome (yes, my attempt to avoid Hoke-is-fat puns/jokes/witticisms failed miserably).

I'm glad UFM is keeping him on scholly - hopefully Rod will take advantage of the opportunity to earn his degree and get some counseling for his "demons". He should have a shot to play at the next level if a team is willing to take a chance on him (maybe last round or invited in as a free agent) - at 6'3", 230 lbs and speed, I'm sure at least one or two will give him a long look. Good luck, Rod.

To go into a hostile environment like State Penn, play a team with nothing to lose and the possibility of making a statement win, play a less-than-stellar game, cough-up the lead and gut it out in 2 OTs with a team loaded with freshmen and sophomores - yeah, I'll take the 'ugly' win. This team showed something last night. I Don't know if we'll make the playoff; a lot of things would have to happen, but I LIKE this team. Reminds me a little of '02.

Comment 10 Oct 2014

I think you make a valid point, Fear. As much as I despise State Penn (endured 7 years in PA - when the Nitwits came into the B1G), the NCAA isn't set up, nor is it really in their purview, to deal with criminality of the Sandusky type. The victims should (and maybe they are trying to) sue the bejeezus out of that backwoods/HillsHaveEyes hellhole. Hit them hard in the wallet and the NCAA can use its authority to ban ANYONE that coached or was in administration during the abuse years, and looked the other way.
