Where did you buy tix? I'm looking at stubhub and see that I can get into the stadium for less than $140 right now. I'm betting I can scalp a ticket for less than $100 at the stadium. We're it not for the rain in the forecast, I probably already would have bought a ticket just to say that I was there. These ticket prices have to have the CFP committee worried. It's not a good look when the top two undefeated teams in the country are generating this little interest. And I couldn't be happier about it.
Jack Nicklaus is a horrible human being now.
-All the talking heads probably.
If I had the athletic ability to smash my face into a backboard whilst leaping through the air, I would gladly do so. There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of here. I suppose next you're going to tell me that John Holmes should be embarrassed as well?
I've been to the Rose Bowl three times, including yesterday. All three times I've parked in neighborhoods on the street (where it was allowed) and walked to the stadium. I've never had to walk more than a mile and it's usually uphill for at least some of it. But based on what you described, I think that's probably the right call. Sorry it was such a sucky experience but is sounds like everything else went well for you. And for anyone who missed it, go to the Rose Bowl if and when you can. It really is a great atmosphere.
Did Grateful drown some kittens and so now people are DVing him whenever they get the chance? Or does everyone just really hate the Grateful Dead and/or Bo Diddley?
That’s Tajikey’s problem now.
Actually I think the seats are number oddly beause of the aisles. Tajikey will find out soon enough I suppose and can report back if I ended up putting some creepy dude in the middle of his family.
I’m certain I DM’d a Mod a few months ago but maybe that’s something you can only do with Mods. Anyway, you can email me to my spam account email@example.com and we can take it from there. Thanks.
Posted the same sentiment in the Skully this morning. Someone questioned whether they should root for or against ND today. I said against. My thought was that ND getting embarrassed today was the best possible outcome for the B10, and mostly the Buckeyes. The shine of ND wore off long ago but every time they show even a hint of being good, everyone gets excited and stupid things happen, like them getting ranked high and the committee putting them in the playoff. This stink will linger, just like the stink of us and MSU getting shut out in the B10’s last two playoff appearances. Welcome to the party ND. You no longer get the benefit of the doubt.
Does anyone else feel bad watching this gif? Makes me sad a little. Would feel much less bad if that were a baby wolverine. Does anyone have that gif?
Holy shit does DJ tweet a lot. But most of his twitter reads like his Skullys. Random shit about the Buckeyes and Browns along with a few interesting WMDs here and there. I’m not knocking it. Just pointing out that DJ is still very much DJ.
Obvious incel accuses other man of being incel. More at 11.
Can someone please convince me why I shouldn’t break from my usual never-root-for-ND-unless-they’re-playing-Fichigan mentality?
You should definitely continue to root against ND in this game. I’ve mentioned this before many times, but I simply don’t think ND belongs in the playoffs. Not because they don’t have a conference championship, but because they just aren’t that good. I think Ohio State would put a TTUN type beating on them 9 times out 10. And that’s exactly what I think they are, a TTUN type team. They handle lesser opponents easily but they just don’t recruit at an elite level to keep up with teams that recruit at an elite level, like Clemson. ND getting embarrassed today will help remind future CFP committees why they don’t get a pass into the final 4 simply because of their once relevant history. The B10 has been left out the last two years in part because of blow out losses to Iowa and Purdue, but also because Ohio State and MSU got humiliated the last two times the B10 was represented in the playoff. ND will get the same treatment if they go shit the bed today. And then that’s one less variable the B10 needs to worry about come future playoff selections.
All that said, if ND wins today or at least looks good and keeps it competitive, I will feel a lot less bad about not making the playoff. If they can show that they belong on this stage, then I can’t really make a strong argument over why Ohio State deserved it more.
I was there to watch Pryor and Germaine in person. Will be doing the same for Haskins next week and taking the entire family with me this time. Will be the first Ohio State game for my wife and two daughters, but my boy has been to two other games with me. Here's to hoping I can keep my personal Rose Bowl win streek going and that after next week, we can add Haskins to the list of all-time Rose Bowl performances.
