Exactly. They're second to Sparty when we're already playing our rival on the road. No better than #3 in the pecking order might constitute a rivalry for Notre Dame, but in Columbus, not so much.
This certainly doesn't help Penn State's case that we're a rival. The dollars don't lie.
As close as they've come to an UNDISPUTED title since the Truman administration.
As a fellow fan of the Almighty Browns, I agree with you 50 percent. The other half believes this time will be different, and that Dolo is The Chosen One who will finally bring our team back to glory.
It looks like a collage of season highlights.
That's the thing: It was NEVER annoying. Except to OU grads. Which, when combined with all the losing, just made it endearing.
God bless Brady Hoke -- unemployed but still keeping it going.
Those sleeve stripes are THE look of Ohio State football.
I cannot wait to read tomorrow's Skull Session. It's Chrismas Eve again!
Agreed. It's unprofessional, and he comes off as a jerk... but at least his public persona is consistent. He may be a decent coach, but nine wins a year isn't good enough to pop off like that. I hope JT can teach him a few things about behaving like a grown man.
1993 - commemorating the 25th anniversary of the 1968 national champions.
Former Nebraska QB Scott Frost is the OC at Oregon and is a candidate for assistant of the year? Hmmm...
That man is playing Galaga... thought we wouldn't notice.
Agreed. The only "escape" in that game was a good Minnesota team escaping from the ass kicking they were in the midst of receiving. Conversely, TCU had to come back against a bad Kansas team. As we have seen here, The Worldwide Leader's website isn't exempt from the anti-OSU shenanigans.
It would not be good from a playoff perspective, but if Ohio State plays Minnesota again -- indoors -- they win by six touchdowns.
Outside the realm of athletics, this is about the most The Ohio State University thing ever.
I'm looking at the same chart and drawing a different conclusion; an 8 p.m. start would be a radical departure from what the start times have been for about the past 65 seasons. That's not an argument against, just an observation. Fact is, they could play the rest of the season back-to-back starting in five minutes and I'm going to stay awake, call in sick, whatever, so I can binge watch. But all else being equal, I want my Buckeye football sooner. If there's time left afterward to party and watch more college ball, that's good, too.
The college football fan map is interesting. I'd love to see ones for high school and pro football. Which areas would have as strong a following in all three as Ohio? Texas? Florida, maybe?
I think Skip Clueless just guaranteed a win for the Buckeyes.
There needs to be a stick puppet video.
Not a rival -- a big game. Just like Michigan State, Wisconsin and Nebraska. But call it whatever you want, Penn State, as long as we can call it a "W."
