Looking back, it is kind of a bad irony for us, isn't it? As much as we all delighted in the misfortunes of TTUN at the time, it would be better if that botch never took place. Also would've been nice if OSU beat stupid Sparty themselves.

So many skinny people where I'm eating on Thursday.  I'm the only fatty that would consider frying a turkey.

I've never prepared a turkey myself, but when I do, I'm frying that sumbitch.  Maybe inject it with some Dr. Pepper.

It's possible.  #7 to #1 in 2 weeks without even playing a game in 2007...this time, the team would get to help their own cause by beating Iowa.  Counting on PSU to beat MSU...I don't know, man, I sure hope so.  This is all assuming that the Bucks beat TTUN, which depends on the offense we see.

Let's see what he does against TTUN.  Remember how much heat Tom Herman was getting after the Virginia Tech game last year.  The playcalling was never again nearly as bad as it was that night.  I'm hoping the same thing happens here.  It better happen, or this team's chances of winning The Game are not good.

He wasn't wrong at all in terms of how he feels.  Winners want the ball.  I would hope he would want the ball more.  I want him to have the ball more.  Zeke is 100% reasonable for feeling the way that he felt.  He should've been pissed off.  He could've said things a lot worse than what he did. 

Should he have chosen his words more carefully?  Maybe.  But you throw a microphone in front of the face of a 20 or 21 year old kid just, what, 15 minutes after a frustrating loss, where he should have been given the ball more...what do you expect?  He could've been a little bit more tactful, but I can't blame him.  He's a good kid.  I'm sure he's probably already apologized to everyone. 

Comment 22 Nov 2015

The message sent by booing is to stop running the same old shit that doesn't work..  Throw the ball downfield.  Give the damn ball to damn Zeke and let him do some damn work.  Whether Zeke should have publicly called out the coaches or not, he was accurate with what he said.

Beat TTUN.  Go Penn State.  Beat Iowa.  Let chaos ensue.

It worked out that way in 2007.  Then the national title game didn't go well because, among many reasons, they went away from their star RB...sound familiar?

Can they find an offense?  Can they find the same hunger they had last year?

It's a miracle.  Bert opened his mouth to talk and a bunch of bullshit didn't fly out.  This is actually a really good idea.  

As a fan, I'd love to see this.  There would be a guaranteed compelling non-conference game every single year, because as long as OSU is around the top of the B1G, then they'll draw a very good SEC opponent every single year.  I know there are matchups with Oklahoma, TCU, Oregon, Texas, Notre Dame down the pipe...and hopefully, those games wouldn't have to be cut, but there's no guarantee on how good any of those programs will be when the time comes for those games.  This challenge would guarantee a quality opponent, barring some kind of monstrous misjudgment on how good a team will be (like, say, Auburn this season).  

At least SEC schools would come north.  It would probably be in September, so it won't be cold, but I guess we can't get everything that we want, right?

Logistically, this will be difficult to pull off.  First, you have the B1G going to 9 conference games next year.  If you already have an Oregon or an Oklahoma or someone like that on the schedule, are you going to be willing to add another tough game against an SEC opponent (leaving you with only 1 tune-up game against a weaker opponent)?  The committee might give you credit for that (provided you win one of those tough games, they might cut you some slack for losing the other - if you lose both, that'll be hard to overcome).  

The other logistical thing would be the need for programs to have 7 home games every year (I think OSU needs this, can't speak on other schools).  With 9 conference games starting next year, B1G teams will alternate each year between having 4 and 5 home conference games.  The SEC still plays 8 as far as I know (not sure if they plan on going to 9).  You would think in years when you only have 4 home conference games, you would want all 3 out-of-conference games to be at home.  So maybe home/away is determined by who in the B1G as 4 home conference games (they would get the home games in the challenge) and who has 5 home conference games (they would go on the road).  But then what do you do if you already have other out-of-conference games set for the future where you go on the road?  Will schools bite the bullet in such years and have only 6 home games?

I'd love to see OSU beat Bert's ass, but Arkansas probably will never be good enough to where they'd be matched up with OSU.

Extra slaw no toast!?!?!?  WHO DOES THAT!?!?!?!?  I always skip the slaw and go for more toast because the toast is divine.

Comment 17 Nov 2015

I did a lot of that on like NCAA 06 or 07.  My 3rd CB would routinely lead my team in sacks because I'd run a Nickel D where the Nickel Back would blitz.

Comment 17 Nov 2015

UConn is just that much better than everyone else, I guess.  They have the best talent and the best coaching.  I don't know what it is with women's hoops, but you just don't see as many upsets as you see in the men's game.  Maybe it's a different attitude (focused, no egos, take every game seriously, etc).  The OSU men would stand a better chance against the current men's #1 team.

I'm willing to bet that the UConn women would probably beat quite a few men's teams.

Sausage McMuffin - $1.  Sausage Egg McMuffin - $3.19.

Sausage McMuffin is a good call, because I don't feel like paying $2.19 for a shitty little egg patty.

Vegas showed that it was smarter than all of us when USC was a 7 point favorite over #3 Utah.  I think this may be the same kind of thing.  I have a good feeling that OSU will kick the shit out of Sparty.  However, I will not be surprised if this is a closer game.  I'm going to make my prediction the average of how I think this could go.

I can see this as a 31-24 win for OSU or a 49-10 type of game.  I'll say 41-17 OSU (40 is kind of a weird number).
