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."
At least this time Maryland sports fans can't steal our team and use it against us.

So, for those keeping score at home, he gets the scholarship but not the bucket hat?
41-14 was the first thing I thought of when I caught the end of that game yesterday. Still, Cleveland trumps Brazil.
Yeah, "off-field issues" are one thing, but Art's a sociopath. There's no comparison between what he's done and the run-of-the-mill knuckleheadery of most others.
Nicely done. I would add an honorable mention for Paul Dietzel, who grew up in Mansfield and coached LSU to a national title in 1958. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Dietzel
Agreed. Furthermore, any coach that comes in and turns around a crappy program like Indiana or Purdue in a couple of seasons will as quickly be gone -- off to UCLA or Tennessee or whatever larger program offers him the big bucks. Their only hope is to stick with somebody, then hope he sticks with them when things finally improve. See: Snyder, Bill
Totally agree. His main sin was having a big ego. News flash: We've had a few of those in the program over the years.
Does it come in "Spell Checked"?
You guys are on fire today.
Fantastic. Stuff like this is why I love 11w.
