First-world problem right now.
As a graduate, I am grateful for the postponement. I was expecting an outright cancellation (and still am kind of).
“Teaching Institution?” Classes are just one of many things a university does. Faculty aren’t hired because they can “teach.” They are there to do research which is worth way more $$ than tuition money. A lot of them have no interest in teaching and half ass their lectures.
Playing with house money on Sunday.
Is there some rule that you have to be douche to coach in the BIG? Underwood, Turgeon, McCaffery, Izzo...
Swept TTUN in their best sport. Guess they still have softball or whatever.
Nothing would be sweeter than going into Happy Valley and blowing their doors off. Their fans are saying they are going 12-0 this year because...well, I don't really know why they would think that.
Moving up the officials jurisdiction is a good idea. A lot of teams in the BIG (cough PSU) try to start shit with OSU during pregame.
Avoid another slow start (easier said than done) and we’ll be fine. They haven’t won a game in forever, and if we get a lead, they’ll fold.
Maryland is getting bounced early in the tourney. Turgeon’s teams haven’t gotten far in the past, and if they can’t handle a dogfight like Sunday, they aren’t Final 4 material.
Don’t know what to make of Oregon. That might end up being our toughest game of the year, but if we do our thing, I think it goes like out trip to Norman a few years ago. I know PSU thinks this is their year, but I’d be surprised if they win up in AA seeing how they were blown out in their last two trips. If we’re lucky, both them and TTUN will drop a couple games and we’ll have a cushion in the division race.
Maryland’s SB Nation is in a fit over yesterday. Very TSUN like. Wesson is dirty, we cheat, blah blah blah. All from a school that had a kid die on a football field last year.
The weather in the BIG takes Chickenshit Saturday off the table. I imagine a lot of people staying home on a cold, snowy November day instead of coming out to watch OSU play a glorified scrimmage against Miami. The Shoe would still be pretty full but other BIG stadiums would be empty.
This team could be so good if we could avoid these bonehead plays.
Fully expect us to be in their bracket this year as a potential 1 v 8 or 2 v 7. Maybe we can return the favor this time.
Don’t really care what we do the rest of the way. Just get in and play your best then. A low seed can make a run in a year like this. We were a mess last February but looked like a different team against Iowa St.
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.
