  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

All I said was there is more to get excited about playing a top ten division foe, than a team with No Conference Wins...... if you are equally excited, Great!!  I however believe that some games are more meaningful than others.  I explicitly said, I'm excited to watch the Buckeyes, as I have been everytime they play, and moreso everytime I get to be in the Shoe.

While I certainly agree that the Team needs to stay focus on the task at hand, one game at a time.   As Fan's, on a Thursday morning, we don't have any effect on outcomes, and I think we fans can look ahead. To me it's central to fandom, as there is nothing particularly exciting about Indiana. YES, I'll be excited to watch my Buckeyes, but not like I was excited for November 8th. So I, not the team, can look ahead, to The Game, and then to The B1G, and those games will get the heart beating faster,  I get to look ahead, the Team needs to stay focused.   And IF, IF, IF.......I have expectations, as do you...

So the masses that never went to college can't have any fan interest in any college ?!?!?  

Does this tool also believe that unless you live in the specific city of a pro team that you can't root for them either?   And what if your Kid goes to a school you didn't attend?!?  

Fanatic - A person marked or motivated by an extreme, unreasoning enthusiasm, as for a cause or a Buckeye.   - It says nothing about attending said university.

YES - There is No Team out there that we would "fear", respect certainly, but not fear,  And every team, except maybe Oregon, Alabama and maybe Baylor should be afraid to play us.

I'm not sure the NFL is a good option off the injury, where he needed improvement as a passer before that. And I don't believe he transfers. I think he stays and competes. (What the shoulder allows goes a long way to determining the position.)

Winning or losing another football game now isn't going to affect Brady's job status in December, while losing one would likely affect Jimbo's wallet. 

Comment 17 Nov 2014

Yep - They are delusional if they think anything other than they got beat by the better team. 

Hope they keep winning though!!

IF Sparty wasn't prepared/took us for granted/whatthef***ever - That's on them (not that I believe it for a second).  That Game was the B1G game of the year from last December and nothing changed in the course of this season to make it anything less than a rematch for the Crown (east). They just got rocked, while wrongly believing they were going to be more than competitive. 

Comment 17 Nov 2014

The offer(s) won't be enticing enough, he stays.  I don't think he gets a call from a power 5 conference team, and when he looks at what he would get to work with next year with the Buckeyes vs trying to do something with Eastern Michigan (I have no idea what their situation is, just picking a random MAC school) he stays and has fun. (Because the work is hard either way)

Comment 16 Nov 2014

The "WHEN YOU SANK INTO YOUR CHAIR" section was the most frustrating thing about yesterdays game. Without the turnovers the game is over before halftime, but with a little D after that lone interception they aren't in it either........the tree Gopher touchdowns are following turnovers, no matter how long the field was.......

Just have a routine that has me up at 6 every day, with a dog that is very good at telling what time it is, in case I try to catch a few more minutes before we get up. And an I'm rarely the first voter.

Buckeyes giving the points. We are scoring 50+, do you really think the gophers can put up more than 36?? I don't think they get half of that. 

Comment 14 Nov 2014

Nebraska would be the preferred winner - but they are no lock in Madison on Saturday.  Ranked 16 and 20 now, the winner could/should be around 10 to12 for the B1G championship game, and all we can do is stomp the next team in front of us.  The internets can say whatever they want, the committee doesn't see much difference between the two, and it would be a win over a ranked team at the right time.
