If OSU wants a better student section, they can (a) stop charging for tickets or (b) put a better team on the court. Every other sport is free except football obviously and if the team started going 8-4, people would stop dropping $270 on that student ticket package too.
You think Fickell is cool with the fact that Day is the better coach? He sure looked pissed off walking out of the Shoe this year. He’ll have something to prove against us each year which I don’t like since we already have TTUN, PSU, and a 6 year rotation with Wisconsin on the schedule in the future.
Great. Another coach with an axe to grind against us who will probably fill half his roster with upset Ohio players snubbed by OSU. Next year @MSU will be a trap game. Can’t be looking ahead to PSU that week.
Good win, good schadenfreude on MGo from the flagrant 1 call.
24 minutes in and we finally get to shoot a free throw.
The folks on MGo are up to their usual antics over this. Claiming they are the "good guys" because MSU and OSU coaches leave under a cloud of scandal. Guess that's worse to them than getting ran out of town after losing to your rivals every year.
I think it’s insulting they flash the +6, +3 on the scoreboard after TD’s and FG’s. 99% of the viewers know how many points a TD is and the 1% who don’t can do the math to figure it out.
With the two road games coming up, we really needed this one. Hopefully, we can split these next two, but it's going to be tough. Wisconsin beat MSU at home today.
This is the dumbest team in America. IU is trying to hand you this game and we hand it right back to them. This will be a 3 point game by the 18:00 mark out of the half.
The only benefit from us playing this game is if we don’t win the BIG and need an at-large bid like 2016 for the playoff. Win or lose, we need the Ducks to win the PAC 12. A win (or God forbid a loss) against a 7-5 Oregon isn’t worth the trip out there.
This is not exactly on topic, but I’m so sick of seeing the OSU commercial with that Wilson Flores guy every game. The commercial they had a few years back was so much better.
Before we play them every year, they think they will beat us. Afterwards, it’s the same old “O$U cheats and we never had a chance” shtick.
PSU will probably be our toughest game. TTUN has Wisconsin and PSU back-to-back at home early in the year. If they lose both of those and we take care of business in Happy Valley, we can wrap up the East by the end of October. Probably won't be that easy but we can hope. Just want to see us back in the playoff no matter what.
Clemson sure looked worn down to me in the 2nd half. Their game against us took a toll on them even if it was two weeks ago. LSU won the natty when they blew out (overrated) Georgia and took the No. 1 seed. Really wish we’d had done the same to Wisconsin again, but I’m not sure it would have mattered after their win.
Rooting for Clemson. To hell with the SEC. Want to watch their "new Bama" crash and burn on national TV.
Rats remind me of the Kelly/Helfrich Oregon teams. Great in regular season only to lay an egg in the bowls/playoffs.
Should have been delay of game on that play. Clock was at 0 for a full second.
What did we learn today? December rankings are meaningless and those who buy into them will be disappointed.
After this season, I wish we would cancel these tough games and schedule MAC teams every November. Works for the ACC and SEC. Unless you have an odd situation like 2016, it’s not worth the risk (like in 2017 when it sunk us).
Need to win the whiteout game on 10/24 (which I already know will be at night) and The Game. Not too worried about any of the other games except Oregon I guess.
2 games we have to win: @PSU (back-to-back after MSU) , and TTUN. Hopefully a 1-loss OSU will get the benefit of the doubt from the committee if we slip up along the way.
This is hands down the worst loss I have ever experienced as fan. Worse than the World Series in 2016. My heart breaks for our guys. We should have won.
We’re winning. Don’t know how, but it is happening.
More concerned with how they come OUT of the tunnel.
I think we win, but this is gonna be a nailbiter.
