As the resident (only?) Ravens fan that frequents this site, I'd love this.

The Ravens have had 2 Ohio State players in their existence that I can remember: Troy Smith and practice squadder Justin Boren. 

Let's just say if he made the team they'd sell at least one jersey.

Good season guys. Went way farther than expected this year, especially after that start to the year.

Next time though I just want an effort. I've never seen a team seem to care less about a game than Ohio State did for the first 30 minutes tonight.

Good luck to the Shockers the rest of the way

As one of, if not the, only Ravens fan here I couldn't be happier to see Tommy cry his blue and yellow tears.

Go Ravens! (Cleveland fans, save your keystrokes.  I know you hate the Ravens, and Art, and Ray Lewis, and a lot of other stuff.  I don't care.)

Everybody hates Dooley so much that they gave him swag with a non-existent website printed on it.

I fail to see how Delaney has done anything BUT help these schools recruit.

National exposure is good, and a foray into the Eastern media market is helpful in getting more B1G teams on TV in big markets.  Additionally, with the money lower tier schools like Indiana (football), Minnesota and Maryland get with each new media deal (or expansion of current deals) they can invest more in their program.  Better facilities, better financial means to bring in coaches, etc., all help bring better players into the fold.

Essentially by making the teams more money he's giving them the keys to the bus and saying "here, now you have less of an excuse to suck forever".  Whether or not these programs act upon that is on them.

I missed the game entirely.

In Cleveland meeting my girlfriend's (now wife) extended family for the first time.  Assumed we were destroying them the whole game.  Got in the car to go back to where we were staying and turned the radio on to hear the replay of the "Holy Buckeye" play.

In my 4 years as a student I missed viewing 2 games; Freshman (sold ticket because my friend was getting married too young and I had to be there) and Sophmore year Purdue.  I feel somehow this friend's now defunct marriage has cursed Ohio State vs. Purdue for eternity.

This would be a good move for him.  Kid has talent and is stuck behind the Moxie.


Comment 22 Jan 2012

It's sad when anyone dies, but we can break JoePa's legacy down to two things:

A. Legendary Football coach.
B. Willful participant in child rape coverup.

I gotta say, option B kinda makes me disregard everything in option A.

In an effort to honor him people will downplay fact B this week. Just remember, that's like saying Jeffrey Dahmer wasn't all bad because he recycled.

Fuck 'em all, let Woody sort 'em out.


Its Hate Week. Time to forget this season sucked and remember that Michigan is a bunch of pussy ass bitches.

I feel bad for the 1st sting O and that is it.

i guess d started off well, but the rest was an embarassment.



Comment 17 Sep 2011

I agree the defense did put forth an effort, however he's a head man now.  He's got to get some of the blame for the lethargic effort on the other side of the ball.

Comment 17 Sep 2011

Luke, I wanted you to succeed, but it's not happening. You are at least partially responsible for the most embarrassing OSU game since the NC Game against Florida. Even during "Purdue Harbor" the guys made an effort. This game included zero effort, zero inventive strategy and zero respectable coaching decisions. You'll be a decent head coach one day, but which MAC school it will be at is yet to be determined.

Comment 04 Sep 2011

If I wasn't already confident that Fickell would do a great job (which I was), throwing to the TE would have won me over.  TE's have been so underused for years in this system and Stoney is gem.
