Buckeye Jack's picture

Utes by 16+...  16 was the margin last season (26-10 Utah). If Ute QB Travis Wilson (6' 7", 235)  has a good night, it could be a blowout.

Utes RB Booker is a beast.  True Freshman Britain Covey, 5'8, 166, is fun to watch. He may break one loose as a Returner or Slot Receiver. Very quick. Very elusive.

I also look for 4+ sacks and 2+ picks by the Utes solid D.  Don't see how M*ch's O could be very cohesive in game 1. 

Zone6, with rotating WR's, will have 1000+ yards at all 3 WR positions this season

Today is the day. I've been calling for Michigan over Utah all off season. So I'll get to see once again if I know something or if I'm a moron. Chances are I'm a moron but its always nice to be right every once in a while. Would love to see Michigan all propped up thinking they are good only to get rick rolled by 35 against Ohio State and see their hopes and dreams crushed much like mine were many times in the 90's. Coopers legacy lives on.

BucksLover0214's picture

It's not so much that we need them to be good, it's just more satisfying beating them when their fan base thinks they have a chance and then they come up short.

They hate us cuz they aint us!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

HS
I_Run_The_Dave's picture

Conversely, if they end up sucking all year and by some act of God they beat us, imagine how loud they will be.  The only part of that scenario that has a glimmer of hope is that we could otherwise run the table, still win the Big Ten, and still make the playoffs.  But if we were to win a back to back National Championship, and scUM was the only L, I would still be angry.  Dealing with delusional VT fans and their "VT: 35, National Champions: 21" t-shirts is bad enough, multiply that by the number of times Harbaugh has taken his shirt off and you get how bad it would be for us with Michigan being the L.  

Your signature will be publicly displayed at the end of your comments.

Their fan base ALWAYS believes they have a chance and they have come up just short many more times that we should be comfortable with. 

It's more satisfying to beat the "winningest" program by at least two touchdowns while they are 5 and 7.

HS
Keyser Soze's picture

Buckslover and anyone that feels like this. Let me drop this thought on you. If the scum fans are winning and feel like they can beat us, well then that means during the season at some point the bastards are happy and smiling. When Utah beats them and they are losing to teams they would crush 20 years ago then it's all rain, clouds and frowns in that whorish town of ann arber!!! Iv'e been there several times and there isn't much more than football in that cesspool.

Now that my friends, makes me smile just thinking about it and if you are not smiling too then I can't help you.

That's how winners play. We convince the other guy he's making all the right moves.

I used to be one of the "we need *ichigan to be good" people. After last year, I hope they lose Every. Single. Game. I understand the sentiment of getting more pleasure out of beating a good *ichigan team, but I see it as spreading the pleasure throughout the entire season. If I win the lottery, I won't be taking the lump sum.

Osusam77's picture

I get it BP - but I still like the fact that we beat a team that beats other team. We are always measured by the strength of our enemy so I'm OK with them winning some games, esp. out of conference games. But I still want them to lose tonight! I want JH to lose his debut just to shut up the northern crazies.

HS
pduncan710's picture

I'm with you on this one. I can never bring myself to actively cheer for _ichigan, and last season proved that Ohio State doesn't need the Big Ten to be good to make the playoffs and win the National Championship, but I don't think there is much argument against Big Ten teams beating teams from other major conferences helping our chances.

HS
novabuckeye's picture

I'm on the side of seeing *ichigan lose as much as possible.  I'd always favor that, but especially so right now. I want to see them lose to the Utes so ALL the wheels come off of the Harbaugh bandwagon.  I want to see it go over a cliff and sail through the air in a gut-sickening drop and then crash in a thunderous explosion onto a huge rock in the valley far below, where *ichigan fans will remain for the rest of the season, looking up at the heights they expected to attain and realizing they still can't get there even with their chosen savior, left bitterly crying and rending their garments and searching endlessly for someone else who can give them hope again.

Go Bucks!

It's a tragedy [TCU at Minnesota] wasn't scheduled for November.

Why? Because it would give Minnesota a better chance of winning? Or because we might see this again:

Minny will be lucky to win 6 games this year. they are replacing 4/5 OL this year, which was their strength last year. I would be pleasantly surprised if the gophers keep it close and only lose by 10.

HS
jamesrbrown322's picture

they are replacing 4/5 OL this year

And that David Cobb guy was pretty damn good too. IMO, they do take a big step back this year. They'll probably end up 3rd-4th in the B1G West (5-3 or 4-4). Then again, maybe Kill finally has them to the plug and play level on offense where Wisconsin has been for two decades.

bd2999's picture

Yeah, I think it is often skipped over how difficult those conditions are. I imagine TCU and other teams would not look as flashy when it is freezing out. One of the reasons it is a shame the big ten did not get a bowl game in their region. They folded like lawn chairs, but still. It would be nice watching an SEC team look like they are freezing.

I remember the Wisconsin vs Miami Fl bowl game a few years ago where the temperature was cooler than normal. The Miami team was all around heaters and bundled as best they could. The Wisconsin side was telling side line reporters it was spring time.

HS
buckeyeCWRU's picture

Definitely agree. I would love to see some of those southern teams have to play north of the Mason-Dixon late in the year. If they ever expand the playoffs I hope they give home field advantage to the higher seeds for the first round so maybe we would get a chance to see some late season games in the north.

SEQUOIA473's picture

They would never do it. The SEC west is the better of the SEC divisions traveling and they're 16-2 at neutral sites in the south since 1998. LSU has historically traveled and I think they play Wisconsin at Lambeau in a couple years but it will never be in a game past October. They have FCS teams to play.

I don't care how other B1G teams do. We proved last season that it doesn't matter for OSU's own good. And TTUN can go ahead and lose every game they play from now until eternity.

HS
Buckeyeincleveburg's picture

I can't agree that it doesn't hurt us when B1G teams lose, remember we were lucky to be selected for the CFP last year.  But TTUN occupies that special place in my heart where yes, I hope they lose every game.

HS
armynurseboy's picture

I have to disagree.  Strength of schedule plays a big part in who gets selected for the CFP, especially when the top 5 or 6 teams are really close in perceived quality.  Having a weak schedule is part of the reason why TCU and Baylor were not picked to be in the CFP.  Having a perceived "strong" conference schedule is also the reason why SEC teams get a pass whenever they lose.  Having teams like TTUN, Penn St, Nebraska and Wisky being back to their historical top form....and then beating them only strengthens OSU's claim to be in the CFP.

HS
Gratefulbuck's picture

I tell non Buckeye fans all the time that there are two types of Buckeye fans. One wants mich losing every single game, the other wants them winning ooc and their bowl game (when they actually get one) while losing  in conference. Neither is right or wrong. And never upset when they lose. Ever.

With all of the hype and anticipation for the upcoming season, let us remember how dedicated our guys are on and OFF the field. It adds a whole additional level of respect for these guys in my eyes.

GO BUCKS !!!

Sure would be swell if Minnesota can tip Texas Christian on the banks of [insert the name of the nearest one of Minnesota's 10,000 shitty lakes here] as well.

Sorry DJ, but the Bank stadium in nearest to the Mississippi River rather than a lake, and only about half the lakes are shitty. Actually, most of the lakes are pretty nice, but they breed the Minnesota state bird, the mosquito.

Damn I hate mosquitos.  My neighborhood used to schedule the county to come spray every couple weeks, but made the decision this year, without telling anyone, to stop.  Didn't even think about it until a month into the summer and they are everywhere.  I would have figured it was too cold in the winter for them to survive wherever they live in the winter to be an issue up there?

Used to go fishing 1,000 miles north of C-bus each summer.  Mosquitoes the size of aeroplanes.  Somehow those sons-a-bitches can survive and thrive through Canadian winters.  We hateses them.

According to Wikipedia, Minnesota actually has 11,842 lakes.  They need to update their license plate.

The only thing that could even remotely make up for having to wait until Monday to see OSU play, is watching Michigan getting curb-stomped by a school that was a mid-major in the not to distant pass!

I'll try to explain this the same way I do to my wife, who absolutely hates mich and can't understand why I'd root for the Utes to lose (not mich winning, there's a difference).

IF mich beats Utah and MSU happens to beat OR, then Utah beats OR or any other Pac12 potential champ - how is that not great for the B1G? I, for one, am tired of the B1G being look upon as 2nd rate among power conferences. Do the Buckeye need this to happen to succeed? Of course not. But, it sure as hell doesn't hurt.

I used to think the same way, GB.  But now, that logic applies with every B1G team except for Michigan - in which case, all logic flies out the window (for me, anyway).  We do not need them to be viable in order to succeed - last season proved that.  I'd rather see Purdue come back than them.

Besides, with Michigan State and an improving Penn State team (along with a couple of others potentially), the B1G East is going to be plenty tough enough as it is -

Don't misunderstand, not saying I want mich getting good, or great, just want them winning occ. Then losing all games in conference. If it were IU playing Utah tonight, I'd feel the same way. Sort of. That said, I'm certainly not upset with mich losing. And, like always, I'll end up rooting for mich to implode and rejoice in them losing. Just saying... It ain't a bad thing if they win. Tonight, anyway.

It's rare that you and I disagree - even slightly.  Go Utes!

I agree...as much as I hate Michigan, it is great to see the BIG do well. Especially because I think the BIG is so underrated. If Michigan was playing another BIG team, then of course I would root for Michigan to lose.

Ohio Valley shout out to Toronto, OH native, Otis Winston, in the Mekka Don video. He was a man among boys in HS. I watched him dunk a ball from the foul line with 2 kids hanging on him during a basketball game at Edison Local. In track, he didn't start high jumping until everyone else was out. Love it when valley boys do well.

I used to be one of those who thought a relevant Michigan team was best for the conference.  But the obnoxious, unwarranted hype over Harbaugh helped push me over the edge. 

I'm thinking it would be even better if the B1G regained its prominence without Michigan -

Can't disagree. But, how fun would it be for a 5-7 mich team to have a quality win ooc?

I'd prefer it if they didn't even have a shred of legitimacy.  Not that it would prevent their delusional fan base from being just as obnoxious as the usually are.

Wouldn't it be better if Indiana had the big OOC win - and not Michigan - again this season?

I am firmly and forever in the crowd that says I hope TTUN goes 0 - 12 every year!  It is obvious we do not need them to be good at all!  They are a national joke and irrelevant to college football and I would love to have them remain there forever!  I have been around their arrogant, idiotic, and obnoxious fan base for 40 plus years and I must say - I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed the silence from them over the last 15 or so years!  I see them opening up their yappers and pounding their chest before even a game has been played crowning Jimmy boy their next savior... I would love nothing better than to see the Utes come out and humiliate them!

FUCK TTUN!

Offensive line coach Ed Warinner thinks Dodson has the skills to serve as a coach or strength coach down the road. So he wants him nearby. And Dodson plans to be around the team this season. Warinner and other staffers still monitor Dodson like he's playing, checking on his class schedule and his housing situation.

"I'm not going to let him fall through the cracks," Warinner said.

Kyle Dodson's retirement from football due to injuries is heartbreaking.  His commitment announcement was memorable.  For me, it felt like it was ushering in a new era at Ohio State, showing that we could move on from Tatgate and look towards a brighter future with Urban at the helm.

I'm glad the medical staff is looking out for these young men's futures, even if it means delivering the news that they will need to close the door on one dream and find another.  I hope that Kyle is able to find peace and a new path for himself.

I'm also encouraged by the above quote in the article.  It shows me that the "family" that our coaches preach is not just talk -- and it affirms the saying, "Once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye."

Two things:

Odds just went from "little" to "none" on the Buckeyes not being the crispiest team on the field on Labor Day.

Don't count on this too much.  We love our #AllMaroonEverything even if is has to come with Burnt Orange lids.  Nike, ugh.

With the offseasons we've had (y'all losing WRs+Bosa to suspension, Brown to injury, our loss of CJ Reavis and Bud's comments regarding fines against stipends), it's right about time to get back on the field.

Just because It.Was.A.Catch, I submit my favorite recently Googled joke against UM.

Q: Do you know why the University of Michigan football team should change its name to the "Opossums"? 
A: Because they play dead at home and get killed on the road. 

I'm a VT guy.  We both hate UM, but they're different schools...

UNC better pull this game out.  ACC > SEC whenever possible
