If I call Harbaugh a dumbass, I am doing the TTUN fanbase a service they do not deserve. Hypocrite, coward, pathetic loser, attention seeker with low self-esteem and impotent underachiever are but a few other descriptive terms I could have chosen from …

"Unlike many of college football’s other major conferences, there is no preseason All-Big Ten team."

Makes sense. In the B1G, one earns accolades at the end of the season, rather than being furnished with them prior to the first game of the season (well, except for TTUN).

Comment 17 Jul 2019

As I have said before, these things are cyclical. TTUN usually is really good from May to July, then starts dropping off around August, finally hitting rock bottom in late November and in the bowl season.

Rinse and repeat ...

Comment 11 Jul 2019

They are running out of excuses not to award Gee his fifth star. He dominates wherever he goes. The classic "but he has to show it in camps" argument goes out the window as well, since he has attended multiple camps and dominated his competition each time. He has also shown that he is a natural leader. Keeping Gee in the .96 range is a demonstration of incompetence. Just my take. 

Comment 11 Jul 2019

Sometimes I get the sense that the media is trying to speak TTUN's "resurgence" into existence. However long it takes. No matter how humiliated they are at the end of each season when proven wrong.  Why, I do not know. 

Comment 11 Jul 2019

Honest question: Why do so many pundits place TTUN so high in their pre-season rankings? As far as I know, they lost a lot, especially on defense. Also, history suggests the high point of their bell curve will be in the pre-season rather than at season's end. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes - while starting a new QB - are stocked with talent all over the field.

Case of failing to learn from the past perhaps?

Three Michiganders enter a bar in Toledo and see an Ohio State Buckeye.

Seeing as they outnumber him three to one, one Michigander suggests they pick a fight with him. The 2nd Michigander says this would be unwise, as they could be charged with battery. The 3rd Michigander reminds them of their superior schooling and says it should be easy to outsmart him and provoke him to attack first. That way, it would be self-defense.

Michigander 1 approaches the Buckeye and says: "All Buckeyes are dim-witted morons that have an overblown ego." The Buckeye ignores this remark and takes a swig of his beer.

Michigander 2 approaches the Buckeye and says: "All Buckeyes are pansies and cowards. They talk a big game, run from competition and then make excuses for their failures." The Buckeye ignores this and carries on with his beer.

Michigander 3 assures his mates that he has a fool-proof provocation. He says: "Jim Harbaugh is a Buckeye!"

The Buckeye turn to him and says: "That's what your two friends were trying to tell me!"

I appreciate the story from ESPN, but shouldn't they be concentrating on $ 180,000 Booster payments in LSU and systematic PED abuse in Clemson?
