So LeBron would be better off losing earlier in the playoffs?  He would take less of a beating for not advancing as far?

Comment 21 Jun 2017

I don't want history to completely repeat itself.  It can for the first 10 weeks.  

Losing to Illinois would be way more embarrassing now than it was 10 years ago, when Illinois was at least a pretty decent team.  

I would love seeing Weber go off for 220-something in AA in a resounding Buckeye victory.  Harbaugh would retire after the season, too.  But I don't want another double-digit beating in the playoffs.

I do have to laugh at the whole joke about going 1-11 but at least the win was against TTUN.  I know its purpose is to put in perspective the importance of the rivalry.  Because imagine what our fanbase would be like if our team started off a season 0-11.  #FireEveryone #IncludingFickell #EvenThoughHesNotHereAnymore

Certainly some good ones on that list...a few were kind of random, too. 

To me, you could replace a couple games on there with games like this past season's Rose Bowl between USC and PSU, or that Cotton Bowl where Sparty rallied to beat Baylor, or certainly The Game from 2016 (or 2013, that was pretty fucking thrilling, too).

I normally scoff at vacating wins, because we saw them happen and all...but having to vacate a title would suck at least a little bit.  No postseason ban though...*cue the usual "at least nobody got a tattoo" snark*...though didn't they serve one recently?  

If that does happen, Michigan thankfully won't be crowned champion.

Well yeah, when a team has to vacate a win, it does not mean the team that lost that game gets credited with that win.  LOL thank goodness that's the case.  That would be awkward even for the team that is retroactively credited with a national title - how happy can you be about it when you saw your team lose that championship game?

The Warriors are the basketball equivalent to a kid that had to use a cheat code to beat a video game that he otherwise couldn't have beaten.

I can only imagine having to introduce Jim Harbaugh's brother-in-law as OSU's next basketball coach.  Just imagine that.

Thank you, Thad, for all that you did over the years...all the success that you were able to bring us...a lot of good memories and it was a lot of fun.  For a while, OSU wasn't just a football school.  

It's a shame that the last few years went the way that they did, but Thad ran a good, clean program, with lots of class.  As much as I, personally, have realized that some kind of change is needed...I didn't want to see it come down to Thad being the one to go.  I didn't want to see a guy who has done so much for this program just get shit-canned.  I know it is very much a "what have you done for me lately" type of business, but...I don't know, I just hated the prospect of it.  

The timing of this decision is odd, but I imagine that it's a product of the circumstances surrounding it.  It's probably not as simple as a performance thing (one would think if it was, that would've been done in March, not held off until June)...I'd guess that it's some combination of performance and health.  Whoever follows Thad has big shoes to fill.

Jump Around at Wisconsin (and taking part in the "Fuck You/Eat Shit" chant that I've seen online would be a bonus).

Army/Navy game.  My dad went a couple of years ago and I would like to go to it one time.

They drafted Poopers....Braylon Edwards 2.0.  Haha the previous comment said Josh Cribbs 2.0...also not a bad comparison.
