Many people probably don't know this, but Le’Veon Bell wanted to come to OSU, but they didn't have room for him. Tressell called Dantonio about him, and said he is going to be really good. The rest is history...
"When you're part of a team, you stand up for your teammates. Your loyalty is to them. You protect them through good and bad, because they'd do the same for you." Yogi Berra
He was the same in high school as he is now. No surprise it was MSU who ended up with him.
Pretty sure OSU wanted him to come in as a safety as they had Rod Smith and Hyde as RB’s committed. I went to Groveport so there will be no Le’Veon Bell hate from this guy.
Keep fighting CalPoppy
The story I heard was that academically OSU couldn't take him, so Luke Fickell called Dantonio and told him they should take him.

Time for MSU to get dumped.
Don’t forget 1974. Their slow roll off of the pile kept another play from being run on their MSU 1.
Always and forever, Go Bucks!
Wasn't that the game where Hayes protested and Wayne Duke didnt decide who won until Satirday evening?
I effin hate Michigan State. I hate the kicker and his stupid windmill arm. I hate Dantonio, I hate Connor Cook so much. Never will we forget what he did. I hope we skull drag them again so I don’t have to get on here anymore to read “running game is terrible” “the linebackers suck” I just want a win that puts belief back in this fan base.

Real Spartans are from Ohio. Ask CWRU.
I hate the offseason.
I don't give a damn for the WHOLE state of michigan, i'm from O-Hi-O...
That's the only reason I need.
Brilliant read, kudos.
From the ashes we will rise
Through anger the team will [be] revitalize[d]
That's a Buckeye touchdown!
Let's hope the Buckeyes come ready to play tomorrow morning.
I totally respect Dantonio - he works hard and is a testament to his upbringing at Ohio State. I just hate the fact that he can and does occasionally beat the shit out of us. Lets return the favor. Go Bucks! And I also don't give a Damn about the whole state of _ichigan..
Of Course Its Hard. It;s Supposed to be Hard. If it was easy everyone would do it.
Hard is what makes it Great.

This thread is for reasons to hate Michigan State.
That little fucker
I'd like to punch him in the dick.
I'd like to windmill punch him in the fucking face when he keels from the dick punch. Teamwork.

In 1998 we were kicking their ass in the 1st half...then fell apart.. offense did nothing
..Conner cook is a complete ass...not looking good weather wise for our offense...that's for sure..
Connor Cook. Asshat.
That was an all time dick move.
Nothing else ever needs to be said about that......forest gump voice
Bengals signed Cook to their practice squad this week, jettisoning Christian Hackenberg. This guy Cook with all that hubris and now he's just fodder for the Bengals starters to whip up on. How's that for some poetic justice?
I'd rather be a minute early than an hour early, 'cause I like to procrastinate.
History major weighing in here:
- Battle of Theropylae was 7 days long, 3 of which were consumed by battle and the rest were ceremony.
- 7,000 Greeks fought in total
- After losing land advantage, 300 Spartans and 700 Thespians stayed. It's estimated another 1,300 - 1,500 stayed behind as well. All either fought to the death or surrendered.
- Every spartan male at the top of the Spanakopita (pretty much every single one) was required to join the army, thus they owned slaves to tend to other economic needs in the city. It's estimated each household had 3-4 slaves per capita.
- Spartan male babies with deformities were either executed or enslaved.
- The Persian Army did not force men to join their army. Instead they recruited their army and paid for it with tax dollars (sounds familiar).
- 3 years after the Battle of Theropylae, the Spartans disengaged the Persian invasion, leaving Athens, the lone democracy in Greece, to form their own alliance with other cities in Greece without the great Spartan Army.
- Anthens and the alliance cities actually drove the Persians out of Greece without Sparta's help.
- 2 years later, Sparta started the Corinthian war with Athens. This war led to the highest death toll in Spartan history. Athens, like other Greek cities outside of Sparta, also did not require men to join their army.
- To turn the tide, Sparta joined forces with... the Persians to finally destroy their sister city Athens. Then something something Alexander the Great, and here we are today with our modern government.
TL;DR... we didn't get democracy from Spartans. In fact, they tried to suppress it. We got it from Persia. Thanks, Xerxes I.
Why MSU would want to associate with those backstabbing psychopaths is beyond me.
At last, Kerry had cracked open his first Red Bull with an impatient delight. And the rest, as they say, was history.
But where did the Persians get this guy from?
I'm assuming either a Soul Cycle or coffee shop in L.A.
My money's on a coffee shop.
Wait, so there weren’t evil genies flinging explosive bottles and monstrous men straight out of hell with gaping teeth and bad breath trying to decapitate mighty Leonidas?????!?
Say it ain’t so...

98 could be 1 thru 10 and I would be good with it.
22 Saturdays till kickoff
F$&k 98 game
98 and 2015. Both were likely national championship buckeye teams
Rally round the lost 98 championship: Remember gerMaine!!!
Never place a bet on anything that can talk.
I'll be in East Lansing tomorrow...if I see anyone windmill their arm I may throw a punch...
$100 if it's in the throat.
I'll be in the Upper deck.....braving the windchill....if we are close enough, the wife, kids and I have your back
How about hating them for that stupid "Go Green, Go White" chant. Does anybody else do that for their school's colors? And back in the day they referred to themselves as "State" and would chant "Let's Go State" like they were the first team that had "state" in their name. Hell, they weren't even the first state in the U.S. Gimme a break!
11: Connor Cook
They're all chickens. The rooster has sex with all of them.
Agree, there’s enough to hate about these fuckers, including the smarmy disrespected role that Dantonio plays. But these games are enough in themselves to warrant full slots each. I was 1 years old in 1974. 2015 we did to ourselves and deserved that loss. Same for 2013, especially our secondary that couldn’t figure things out, especially Withers and the fact that Vonn Bell wasn’t a better choice than Pitt Brown after Christian Bryant went down.
But 1998 takes the cake. That may have been Cooper’s best team. We were up I think 13 points and getting ball back in good field position in I think the 3rd quarter. Punt hits off of one of our guys and Michigan State recovers. They go down and score and we never recovered from that. That game literally turned on one play. I’ll never forget watching the end of it, sprawled out on the pool table at the back of the Out R Inn.
I hate them because we play them in about 9 hours. Also for the many reasons already stated.
While i'm at it... I hate that " other " team we play in two weeks for at least a million reasons.
BTW, I hate the Terps because they have that damn " M " at the beginning of their name.
Buckeyes are on a three week crusade. Destroy ALL " M's " to finish the season.

Hoping this team can flip a switch. Talent is there, but we’re running out of time.
Amen to that. It's overdrive time!
I'm personally sick of Dantonio's grumpy victim posture. Kick their butts into the dirt and let him pout, as usual.
"We get paid to score touchdowns, not kick field goals"

2015 is the one that stings the most for me. That was the year we were supposed to win it all. The talent was ridiculous. Studs throughout the 2 deep. A collision course with Bama in the playoff. A rematch to prove that 2014 was no fluke. That 2015 was going to go wire to wire and repeat. Enter Zeke's hospital stay to start the week. Craptastic weather, and an offensive game plan even Jim Bollman would call ridiculous. The disappearance of Zeke after the half. And that flaming pile of douche fuck that was their kicker windmilling around the field. And Zeke's post game comments sending the twittersphere into an uproar. How dare a young man voice his displeasure with being a bystander in his final game at Ohio Stadium? Zeke was right by the way.
The rest was the worst. Sparty wins Big Ten, gets the playoff bid. And proceeds to set the Big Ten as a conference back with their showing against Bama. We ran through the rest of our schedule. And smoked ND in the Fiesta Bowl. The NFL Exodus was crushing to any legitmate playoff run since. Yeah, we got there in 2016. And were flat out embarrassed by Clemson. So, in a way, that 2015 loss is part of why things are where they are today. We win that game, we win the first 2 playoffs. And we get the BOD with the committee. Spartys win unravelled any momentum we created by slaying the dragon in his lair in 2014. Thanks a lot Sparty.
If D'antoni's controlling the weather, he's responsible for the miserable 2015 conditions, too.
Connor Cook. Insignificant.
#5 O State once had a coach good at developing 3 star linebackers (Little Animal) into All Pros.
Welcome November and no Markie night game match ups.
Why only 10 reasons...??
I don't know which I hate more ...
1998 losing after I flew home to watch the game, or the windmill kicker play in 2015.
45 points last year, 20 points this year. Just keep kicking them into irrelevance.
