^ Jail did something to this guy. His posts used to be tolerable to read just like Michigan used to be relevant.

Comment 12 Dec 2014

I'm surprised everyone is completely re-sold on him after 1 phenomenal game. I like that we're trending up but I need to see a complete season first

Motherfu!ker Jones!

What an absolute joke...wow

Comment 02 Dec 2014

He's my #1 want. Urban already knows what to expect out of him and they have won championship together. As bad a Michigan has been, their D was the only area that wasn't falling completely apart. I don't see Fick leaving or getting the boot though

Would you rather coach a down-in-the-dumps Buckeyes team or a recent Bama squad? I think most of us would choose OSU. It all depends on where his heart really is and how badly he would like to coach Michigan...because he likely won't get another shot. That, and I'm sure a pay increase wouldn't hurt

That being said, I don't think Miles or Jimmy will be coaching them

Any chance we could get Mattison once Hoke is gone? Would we even want him? He and Urban did something pretty great together at Florida

Comment 25 Nov 2014

I really can't believe so many people are up in arms about this. This kid had his chances...lied the first time around and tested positive AGAIN when he was given a second chance. How many chances should one be allotted? Playing football is a privilege and one you have to EARN. If this were any other school, I would roll my eyes if a kid in his situation was reinstated and its no different here. I absolutely wish him the best but he had his chances. I don't think he'll be hurting too badly though as he'll get his shot in the NFL.

Side note: He's not being "pushed aside" by not being allowed back on a football field. It's a game. If he was kicked out of school/work, the "pushed aside" argument would work. Playing a game that requires extreme focus is NOT going to make or break his addiction problem...

Born and raised in Michigan, both parents are big U of M fans. I actually have a baby picture where I'm wearing a "baby wolverine" onesie. Half of my family are from Ohio (ones I don't see very often) and they always sent me Buckeyes and various OSU clothes when I was younger. When I started getting into sports in 2nd grade ('94), all of the Ohio State stuff just sort of stuck with me and I refused to like Michigan. It just snowballed from there.

I'll get silently judged for this (or not so silently), but as of this summer, I graduated from...wait for it...U of M. I had the ability to separate education and athletics and am proud of my degree. I always proudly wore OSU stuff around campus and at graduation, with a block O on my cap, as I accepted my diploma, many of the graduates screamed "Go Blue"...I flashed an O-H up on stage at U of M. I have yet to look into anything and I think I've said this on here before, but I plan on getting some kind of certificate from OSU, online or otherwise, just to say I have one from the University. Thats definitely a goal of mine. I couldn't imagine watching any other team on saturdays. Sorry this was so long hah.

O-H

He really did give up on it...he's going to have to do a LOT to prove he should be on the field again, with the fans at least

Comment 11 Nov 2014

The coaches seem to love him and thats all that matters but he just doesn't excite me at all. Wilson reminds me of Jordan Hall. Every year, the unrealistic expectations/potential never gets lived up to. I wish him an extremely fast recovery and hope he's back for bowling.

I'm on the Jalin train so I'm very excited to see him get a lot more touches.

Comment 09 Nov 2014

What are the rules for running out of bounds and then continuing to play?  The first Oregon player to touch the ball ran out of bounds first in the end zone. Is that only a offensive thing where you can't touch the ball after that?

Comment 01 Nov 2014

Unfortunately, that sounds like us too...always seem to douche up a single game

Comment 30 Oct 2014

I will say- I love the way MSU fans put their team up on a pedestal when they've only been relevant in the college football world for 2-3 years. They have no reason to have a holier-than-thou attitude. They'll be back to mediocrity within the next few years. Maybe this is just because I'm surrounded by them though...

Guess whats buzzing on Yahoo sports in a "Breaking news type" header: "Ohio State awarded 'interception' you have to see to believe"
