I also have outstanding food ability. Which is why I'm on a diet right now.
If they were going to OSU on an academic scholarship and took a high paying job before they had their degree no one would say a word. Somehow physical skills aren't viewed as important as mental. They were recruited to play football not invent the cure for cancer.* I hope they continue with their education for their sake but let's not pretend that they shame Ohio State by going into their chosen profession as soon as possible. *does not include Craig Krenzel. He could find a cure for cancer.
I'm sorry, but I still can't get up for this game. Whenever I see something about the playoffs, I sigh and change the channel. That should be us there and not Sparty. Honestly, I still feel like Miss Columbia after Steve Harvey yanked the crown off her head and handed it to someone else. I know come 1 pm on the 1st I will be jacked, but even if the Bucks were to blow them out it would still feel like my stomach an hour after I ate Chinese food.
I think that, back when the BIG only sent a team to the Rose, playing in a bowl for either Michigan or Ohio State really was anti-climatic. It's not that they didn't want to win the Rose Bowl, it's just I think they often didn't have anything left in the tank. Besides, Woody, Bruce, Cooper and Tressel all geared their teams to win the BIG, which meant stout running games for November runs pared with stout run defenses. Sometimes the teams they faced in the various bowls liked to try the forward pass also.
The problem with expanding to 8 teams is that #9 is going to bitch. It's so very easy as a Buckeye fan to want to expand, but the simple truth is we had one game to win and the entire team/staff played/ coached like crap. We win that game and all of us are happy right now and think the system is just fine. If (or should I say, when) they expand, it should never be more than 8 teams. And conference champs must get a place! I'd rather see a three loss Big 12 champ get in instead of 3 SEC teams that ESPN would push for.
How bad is the SEC East if Florida was good enough to win that division? I almost feel sorry for Alabama because they have no idea how bad their team is...yet. I'd put Oklahoma at 1, The Other Michigan at 2, Clemson at 3 and Bamy at 4. I think that the Sooners would roll (pun intended) the Tide and Sparty would introduce Clemson to a team with a defense. Hells bells, Sparty might just win the whole damn thing.
Beating Michigan will always be sweet, but the season seems lost to me. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but then again, this is The Ohio State University returning a ton of talent from last season's national championship. We should expect it all. Beating Michigan has become commonplace; it's expected as much as I expect to beat Indiana or Penn St. Even the beat down the Bucks put upon them this year won't remove the bitter taste of losing to The Other Michigan.
I know that Meyer and Saban are the only two coaches ever to win national titles at two different schools, but WHEN the Bucks win the title again this year, Meyer will be the only coach to win multiple titles at more than one school. GOAT indeed.
I like twitter a lot more when it's full of happy rainbow and unicorn Buckeye thoughts. Keep winning fellas and enjoy being young.
Geeze. I feel like I should be charged for this football education. Amazing breakdowns.
Evan Turner's half-court shot in the BIG tourney. The Michigan radio call on that is timeless.
While OSU has had a couple of close games, the rest have ended up with the Bucks winning by large margins. FSU last year had come-from-behind wins almost every week. No comparison.
It could be worse. Bosa's first game could be against Penn St. If that were the case, he'd most likely commit manslaughter.
"The only things that's certain is that no one in this room is going to Heaven." Or beating Bob Hope.
This is seriously the best thing that 11 Warriors has ever done. I honestly can't see how I am going to vote against at least five people on here.
Super double douche on the dude who drove the length of the court and slammed it when the game was over. Typical lack of class.
So does a loss drop Michigan from a two seed? And does winning the BIG make Ohio State a number two in the NCAA?
I think he just got a good whiff of how his team plays.
"What do you mean they aren't expanding the NCAA to 128 teams? Damn! We were on the bubble!"
I never thought I would say this about anything, but I think those hockey jerseys look better than the football jerseys.
"Touching Howard's Rock" means something very different in a southern jail.
Why is this game starting at 9??? Arrgh! Oh well, I'll get plenty of sleep when I'm dead.
Wait...wasn't Michigan's bowl game last week?
Damn. Global warming is for real.
I agree with this being Matta's best team. It is true that we have only played a pretty easy schedule so far, but like FSU in football, we have demolished all of those teams. What strikes me about this particular squad is the balance at both ends of the court. While Turner was here, players seemed to stand back and let him run the show. With the '06 team there was too much youth. But this team is playing well, spreading it around and as noted playing killer D. I also appreciate how much Matta is using his bench. (Possibly because he knows what little he will have returning next season?) I know the BIG still looms ahead and March is a million years away, but if this teams continues to progress they have an excellent chance at another Final Four.
