All of this hate for other schools - even TTUN - is stupid and childish. Former neighbor was UM grad. He is a good guy. We have fun pretending we did not like each other. But that was just a game. Current neighbor is a MSU grad and he is a great guy. We all love our school and the B1G, but we are smart and adult enough to know it's just games. While the SEC may win the NC, if they don't understand it's just a game and there will be another one next year they are losers.

Did  I miss something?  Where did she say the SEC is better than the B1G.  My take from her comments are that SEC folk have their priorities messed up.  It is a sport and in the end sportmanship is what matters.  She said the SEC is "dirty and mean".  Those are not words I want associated with the B1G.  This "dirty and mean" SEC was going to kill her husband and father to her children.  It about priorities.  I hope ours always has family and sportmanship before winning.

How is it possible to know anyone's SOS before anyone has played a game?  This is one of the problems (but also blessings) with college football, one's history and rep (and conference) carry too much weight.  There is never a "turn" champion, so we got to keep on playing year after year.  It is the reason for things like 11W.  No matter the record, the score the Buckeyes are Champions and I will agrue the point until my death.  The things is there is a guy in Ana Arbor who feels the same about his team, a guy South Bend, a guy in LA, State College, Austin, ....  This is what makes college football great.  I think that a playoff and power 5 nonsense will hurt college football in the long run.  Like  how the BCS destroyed one of college football's great traditions, the Cotton Bowl.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I grew up inpp a neighborhood where most the parents did not care who knew how their child was punished.  In fact I think they wanted every one to know that the behavior in question was unacceptable and would not be tolerated.  In fact, most would punish any kid in the neighborhood if they saw them do something.  You would get it double when you got home and then have to go apologize to the other parents.  My brother got caught drinking in Huston Woods State Park.  He had to clean fault toilets for the next two weeks.  Most of the kids in the neighborhood turned out to be pretty good adults.  It was a great place and time to grow up!

Thanks.  Let's hope the Bucks are bring the JUICE every Saturday this fall.

Comment 22 Jul 2014

Please for us who don't know, what is j.u.i.c.e.?  When I hear juice in a sports context I think only bad things:  OJ, who's in jail, and performance enhancing substances that could put you there.

Hey Mr. Jones I got an idea.  Only power 5 are allowed to have fireworks shows!  Sorry mid-majors you only get to play football.

Comment 21 Jul 2014

This power 5 nonsence will ruin college football.  I rarely watch NFL games, not enough innovation.  One game looks like any other game.  And l hate crap like the Super Bowl half time show. Rather watch a high school marching band. With power 5 it will be all about corporations.   Power 5 will become NFL Jr.  Sorry, maybe I'm too old fashioned.  I hope some major player says this is getting out of hand and others rethink.

Alum of UD, Wright State, and OSU.  Hate it.  Where is the blue?  The V shaped thing a wing?  I think they are trying to combine the modern delta wing - V shape - with the biplane wing of the Wright Brothers - the white horizontal lines?  Modern, yet with tradition!

Comment 19 Jul 2014

I have been visiting this site for a month now.  The hate for *ichigan is clear, but so is the need for *ichigan.  *ichigan is part of the the glue that holds 11W together.  My guess is about 50% of the discussions on here revolve around *ichigan, if not more.  A good *ichigan is good for tOSU, it is good for The Game and the B1G.  Maybe this is why we want Brandon gone.  He is bad for *ichigan, bad for the B1G, and thus bad for tOSU.

GO B....  (I'll be down voted for that,)

Watch his feet.  They keep moving even after making contact, drive through the ball carrier.  So many players just throw their bodies at the carrier, a la Roby last season.  Big hits, but big backs, a la Carlos Hyde, maybe break stride, but regain balance and add more yards.

Comment 17 Jul 2014

Hey Dude, I'm 50 and my knees use to hurt all the time, tore miniscus play b-ball 10 years ago.  Two years ago pinch nerve in lower back.  Tried yoga and swimming.  Knee pain rarely now.  I credit the yoga.  Give it a try.  Yeah you fart a lot, so do the chicks!  I'm interested to see if Minn has less injuries this year after the yoka in off season.

Old enough to have watched him play.  Quite a treat!

Super nice man.  While in grad school I would walk past the old fieldhouse and often pass Mr. Griffin as he walked to his office and me to my lab.  He always said "Hello."

Comment 16 Jul 2014

Scared?  Of what?  Don't be a whimp, represent!  

Don't be a whimp like SD Charger fans who sell their tickets and take their flags and such off their cars when the Raiders are in town.

Didn't the mighty Tide get their arses handed to them at the end of last season.  The Tide has rolled on.  I see at least 3 losses for them this year!

None needed.  Check their rosters from the 70-80, tons of Ohio kids.  Growing up we thought of them as Ohio North 1 & 2.  With exception of games against Ohio State we always rooted for them.  I still do.

Comment 15 Jul 2014

I agree.  I think Pryor is owed an apology by all of us who referred to him as a thug or worse.  Terrelle is  welcome any day in my house.  I would never let Manziel near my teenage daughters.

Comment 12 Jul 2014

Live in CA so actually just late afternoon for me.  Wife hates when first thing I do Saturday morning is watch the game.  Evening games allow me to get some chores done, ie. make my wife happy, and still watch an entire game. A win-win for us.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Need to stop buying into the SEC myth.  Yes their top teams are very good, but how can two teams from the Big12 come in and be championship contenders right away?  Based on the defense last year seems the SEC is becoming like the Big12.  Maybe that is why A&M and Mizzu have found success so soon in the mighty SEC.
