I'm not sure I ever really disliked Urban.  I may have made fun of a couple of things here and there...but I was more mad at our own football team for laying one of the biggest eggs in a championship game in sports history.  At the end of the night, Urban was just doing his job, right?  

I figured Tressel might have drawn back on the 2002 OSU experience, where OSU was on the other end of the favorite/underdog in big in most everyone thought the Buckeyes would be destroyed by "the U"...and that would mitigate any chip Florida might have on its shoulder.  Woops.  Guess not.

Yelling racial slurs at players...coming from the same people that are "offended" by Chief Wahoo.  (OK, maybe there's no guarantee of an overlap between the people yelling slurs and the people "offended" by Chief Wahoo, but still, it sounds hypocritical af).

They must really have an obsession with throwing beer.  And then, of course, cheering because Bauer had to leave the game due to his bloody finger.

I'll just be in Mansfield and will probably be watching the game with my dad...and I'm sure there will be wings and beer involved.

Yeah I thought that was weird, but it looked like it was only students.  Sounds like it's tradition there each their own.

Comment 17 Oct 2016

I agree with that...I totally understand the penalty if Urban was on the field and got in the way of an official...but on the sideline...I get that you need to stay out of the refs' way, too, but 15 yards is excessive.

The rule I really want to see changed after Saturday concerns that fumble by Wisconsin that was ruled a dead ball because the dude's foot touched it while the dude was out of bounds.  That seems completely ridiculous to me that a ball that was clearly fumbled and never rolled out of bounds is ruled dead because their RB basically got lucky and hit the ball with his foot while falling (while out of bounds).  Wisconsin ended up getting a TD on that drive...a fumble recovery by OSU completely changes momentum.

Marvin Lewis = John Cooper.  Not an entirely bad thing.  But I don't see the Bengals taking the next step with him. 

The Bengals have had some good ass teams in recent years, but, they always manage to disappoint when it matters.  They have had rosters that should be contending for Super Bowls, yet they can't even win one playoff game.  To me, it goes back to coaching. 

I appreciate the hell out of Marvin for helping turn the Bengals into a competitive team, because they were a fucking joke before he got there.  However, I feel he can only take them so far.  The good that John Cooper did for OSU set the stage for Jim Tressel to come in and win a title and have all kinds of success, and now look where this program is at with Urban.  Perhaps the stage is set for a younger, perhaps more fiery coach to come in and take Cincy to the next level.

I promise I did not see this comment before making my own 31-13 prediction

Comment 12 Oct 2016

I yelled unspeakable things during that game at the TV.  I'm surprised my wife didn't leave me in horror.

I don't see a repeat happening.  Wisconsin's offense against the Silver Bullets...that's a matchup I love.  The Buckeye offense needs to be efficient and take care of the football.  I am not anticipating a 59-0 repeat.  I'm thinking more along the lines of 31-13 OSU.

And the stuff to do is done on Sundays for me.  That's kind of the compromise I have with the wife.  Let me watch my Buckeyes on Saturday.  I don't even care to watch whole NFL games...I might catch the 4th quarter of the Bengals game or something...if it's even on TV around here.

Also he said JT hasn't won a game against a ranked team in a big setting. Um head scratch again Beau. Michigan State ring a bell, or how about Oklahoma just this year. 

Yeah, Sparty 2014, The Game 2015, Fiesta Bowl, Oklahoma in Norman...and none of those games were even close.  He tore their asses up.  So glad I don't have to listen to Beau's dumb ass on 97.1 anymore.

I will say that I have been to a few versions of The Game in Columbus.  I've seen some of our fans, in the past, be dicks to some of their fans.  I'm thinking mostly of the 2002 game.  You might remember that game, and the aftermath...I certainly remember drunk people, lots of trash everywhere on campus...and some of our fans acting not so friendly.  There is also a video somewhere on YouTube, taken by a group of TTUN fans that were on campus that day, documenting a number of things that I certainly wouldn't be proud to be associated with. 

With all that being said, I've not seen anything like that in basically every year since (that stuff from 2002 was kind of a black eye for OSU).  They might get a little shit, but I don't think there's any reason to fear for their safety.  It's hyperbole.  A lot of that going around these days...

Hopefully this lights a fire under their asses.  They should be better than last year but last year didn't inspire a lot of confidence.
