Following the "football is like war" meme from a couple of days ago...just imagine how many battles could have gone differently if the side who had been worn down would have had more time to bring in fresh troops!

Custer to Sitting Bull "Hang on there Chief...we need time to substitute for some of our tired soldiers.  We don't want any of them to get hurt." or Davie Crockett at the Alamo..."Now just a gosh durn minute there General Santa Anna. You simply have to give us time to get our reinforcements here...I am sure they will be here any moment.  And besides, you are all coming at us way to fast."

Yep, Ol Barf B. is a laugh a minute.

I think that Sparty should embrace the Little Brother moniker...nothing wrong with being a little brother to an older, uglier, fatter SISTER!

Johnny,

No apology needed, expected, or even accepted!  As an occasional visitor (troll) to a certain blog (not to be named), it is common practice for that long-haired-hippy-freak to intentionally stop posting because he is pouting about a butt kickin' at the hands of our Glorious Buckeyes!  And over the past several years, that has happened LOTS!

In the future, just put in for PTO (paid time off)...the only reason required.

I could answer you and pretend that I am oh-so-eloquent...or post this link to Wiki... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sic  Hope it helps.

Comment 19 Mar 2013

Time to get back to work...time for just one more glance at 11W...Ramzy NAILED it!  Thanks for the great read.  I now have enough to make it through the afternoon!

Comment 07 Mar 2013

+1  If it is KFC (<--and I DO like that), then how about "The Colonel" for short? (For those of you younger than an ol' man such as myself, it used to be known as Colonel Sanders' Kentucky Fried Chicken)

Comment 19 Nov 2012

Owwwwww!  My eyes...I can feel the burning in the retinas even as I type.  To now be closely associated with those uniforms really, really hurts!

But, welcome to the club, Turtles.

Comment 09 Nov 2012

"Nuttin but net" could also imply an air-ball!  Just about anywhere you throw it on that end of the deck is gonna be net.

Comment 21 Oct 2012

I do not believe that UM is exploiting a rule, as a matter of fact, he is doing what virtually every team would do if they had the same set of circumstances, i.e. a kicker that can precisely place the ball every kick, and coverage that can (almost, sigh...try to forget the occasional 100 yd return!) cover inside of the twenty.  If it was truly all about safety, then they would pass a rule that says instead of kicking off, the ball would simply be placed on the receiving team's 20 or 25 yard line...kind of like OT, except farther away...and more boring!  I for one, do not want that.

Comment 18 Oct 2012

How about the motivation of going for a SECOND Heisman...for only the second time in history...knowing that the only other time it happened it was ANOTHER legendary Buckeye!  

Comment 03 Sep 2012

I have thought this for quite some time, that perhaps Bollman has been the scapegoat for way too long.  It is very possible (probable, even?) that JT was in fact the play caller entirely for the games, and Bollman was simply a figurehead that was expected to prepare the offense at his boss's urging. Just a thought.  Maybe this has already been debated ad nauseum...if so, Sorry. :-\

 

This was supposed to be in response to the post below...my bad!

I say that he lost a bet! or...what BUCKEYEVET said.

Comment 27 Aug 2012

I say you just suck it up regarding your RA, get you a small efficiency near OSU campus and enjoy the really important things in life...football....basketball...and ummmmm...football!

Enjoy your change, wherever you happen to land.  Good Luck!

^^^^^^

Thiis! Well thought out and artfully reasoned. (Now if everyone in this thread could use the same logic and style, it would certainly make for a more pleasant read. hmpphhh hmpphhh)  Thanks.

Comment 15 Aug 2012

@TennBuck...under the Victor? it said "See righthand corner)...which is the Heisman Watch...ergo the "?"  

We all hate tTUN, but Denard has to be considered. (Ouch!  I think I just broke my keyboard typing that... )

Comment 08 Aug 2012

What part of the NCAA acronym stands for Economics Department?  NCAA does not have ANY control over the actions of a school's departments/funcitons other than Athletics.

Comment 03 Aug 2012

I was sort of thinking the same thing.  Was there possibly some sort of reverse discrimination going on in that they were offering black athletes courses that could help them to remain eligible, while equivalent courses were not offered to their lighter skinned, academically challenged, contemporaries? 

That being said, call me naive, but I choose to believe that these classes were created with the goal of helping some young people to attain a degree, and not just to keep them on the football field.  It may not been a well thought out plan, but one that was justified in their minds. I can say this because I also do not believe that Jim Tressel planned to intentionally cover up what he knew in order to win games.  His intentions were more honorable...but wrong.

Comment 23 Jul 2012

128 - "They're the only school that obsesses unreasonably on these records..."  Are you KEEDING me?  Have you never read a UM blog...never, ever?  Ask any scUM fan about the winningest progaram of all time, and in spite of the fact that they have to go clear back to the flag-football game on the Ark  (they will point out that the Wolverines won...) they never fail to scream about all of their wins.  Other than that, you are correct. 

Comment 13 Jul 2012

"Congraduations" on your big day...mine was nearly 39 years ago and am hoping for many more.  However, I must disagree with your premise that sports are akin to marriage.  More than 50% of marriages end in divorce.  What  percentage of fans ever give up on their favorite team, only to pursue another?  Not many. (Although we simply CANNOT understand how UM fans could EVER stay married to that MUD-UGLY woman, Ann Arbor!)

Here's to many wonderful years!  Cheers.

 

Comment 22 Apr 2012

Any thoughts on the punting?  I was not too impressed (disappointed, actually) with what I saw.  I assumed that spring practice would have placed emphasis on hang time, distance, and placement.  I saw nothing to be excited about.  Where do we stand this year?  All in all, though, very excited and am now dreading the drought that is summer with no football!

Comment 13 Feb 2012

Accepted.  (Now, see? The rest of the blog-o-sphere can take us fine folks here at DubYa World as fine examples of how the give-and-take of minor disagreements should be handled!)

Comment 13 Feb 2012

What a stinking, fly-crawlin', maggot-eatin', pile of BUDDHABUCK!  Keep your unnecessary, unwanted, and unwarranted political- point-of-view comments to yourself.  Your BBall comments, however, were okay.
