The only thing missing was a glass of milk in one hand and sitting there with his shirt off - that is what has become the mantra of The Michigan Man ...... He said he was 44 - was he quoting his age or his IQ ??

Comment 08 Jan 2018

I'll watch the game tonight, for one reason only - I enjoy college football, even more than the NFL ....

I like to watch so many young men, most who will be playing their last down of football in their lives (except for the touch and flag football leagues) and who will be giving it everything they have to win.  They'll be hurting, but unlike the NFL players, won't be jogging off the field with a chipped fingernail, because nothing matters more to them than playing with their brothers for one last game.

I had hoped the Sooners would have won it all, but with them out, then I'm going to be cheering for Georgia (been a loooooong time since they even sniffed an NC game, so maybe it's time).....

Then, when it's over, I'll start looking forward to the OSU camp, Spring ball and then a new season ...... can't wait !!

Comment 08 Jan 2018

Those two are playing for the NC and we're not - I'm not happy about it and think we would have done just fine against either team, but the fact is that they did what they needed to do, to get there and we didn't, so let their fans have their little moment in the sun .... I do hate the fact that there are two SEC teams in the finals (I had Bama against the Sooners, with the Sooners winning it all), since it provides those hillbillies with bragging rights for the next 365 days, but that's life (and the result of allowing the Hawkeyes to put up 55 points on us, when it just shouldn't have happened).

So, swallow hard, take a deep breath, Buckeye Nation and just enjoy sounds of the national anthem being played by an all banjo picking marching band.  They're in it - we're not ... to the victors go the spoils and the bragging rights which go with it .... My only wish is that the game ends in double OT with Georgia pulling out the 3 - 0 victory, as most of the action takes place between the two 35 yard lines and the announcers actually fall asleep on the air around the mid-point of the 3rd quarter.

Yawn ..........

Comment 07 Jan 2018

Don't know what kind of competition Carman played against in HS, but he seemed over-matched against the speed and strength of the defenders he tried to handle.  Might have been the case of a big (make that, huge) fish in a little pond, moving up to a pond that's filled with other big fish and he no longer can rely on just size to dominate the LOS ....

Time will tell what we did, or did not miss out on, but I'm quite satisfied that the kids that signed with us WANT to wear the Scarlet & Grey .....

Comment 07 Jan 2018

After watching the Army HS game yesterday, the distinct odor of Seantrel Henderson was present, as I watched Carman constantly having trouble keeping pass rushers in front of him (it was like he was stuck in wet cement) ..... We may have dodged a bullet with him going to Clemson (should be fun to see if old Jed Clampett can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear) ..... Very happy with what I saw of Mr. Wray - the kid can play .... Now, we just need one more like him ....

Comment 06 Jan 2018

Damn shame that Ruckert didn't even get a sniff of the football, especially since he was apparently lighting it up during the practices ..... and I was so fed up listening to those jack-holes going on about the QB's the entire game (there are other players on the field) .... Apparently, only Clemson and Texas were the only teams with recruits on the field - according to the commentary ....

Our young Bucks looked very good ....

Comment 04 Jan 2018

All I do is remind myself of those kids that made the decision to attend another program, or who decide to leave OSU for another school and then sit at home watching the Buckeyes win the NC in 2014 - must have stung, when they could have been part of that moment ?? 

Even better is when I think of all the kids who spurned OSU and decided to become Michigan men, then think about the frustration they must feel every season, as they lose another game to their rivals and absorb more frustration from their fan base.  Geez, that must tear their hearts out ....

Bottom line - "You're either with us, or against us" ......

Comment 03 Jan 2018

C.J. Saunders (Jr.) gets my vote for the most consistent WR we have in Zone 6 - although rarely targeted, he is always open (and we're talking losing his coverage like a kid loses his parents on a beach), has an outstanding set of hands and once he gets the ball in his hands, he does something with it in the open field.

Just wish they'd give him more opportunities to get on the field ......

Comment 02 Jan 2018

Probably should have said, "were bigger", since the CFL used to use the old Spalding J5V football, which had a bigger circumference than the NFL ball.  However, once Spalding went away, the CFL is now using the Wilson ball, where the only difference is the white stripe on each end of the ball ..... So, it wasn't a myth, but it is now .....

I also think JT would do well in the CFL, where smaller, mobile QB's have had very good careers - Doug Flutie and Warren Moon spring to mind .....

Comment 02 Jan 2018

Let's see - people screaming because, for the first time, there are two teams from the same conference in the playoffs and one of them wasn't even a conference champion ..... As it turns out, the committee made the right call, as both members of the SEC have made it to the finals, proving (as everyone at ESPN has known for years), that the SEC is the best conference in college football.  This can no longer be disputed ......

Comment 01 Jan 2018

Tough way to start 2018 - The BIG misses a chance to go 8 - 0 in Bowl games (although, I did have a bit of a smirk knowing it was that trash from up north which screwed the pooch today) and now it appears that we might have two SEC teams battling it out in the NC game ..... I was really hoping that it was going to be the Tigers and Sooners going at it - proving that it was a huge mistake putting two SEC teams in the top 4 .... dang !!!!

Comment 01 Jan 2018

After visiting the MgoBlog site, I'm not surprised that there AREN'T any apologists for Coach Harbaugh - on the contrary, the vast majority have finally seen through the shirtless, tree climbing, sleep-over, milk drinking, Rome-visiting antics of a man who is so vastly overrated as a football coach, that figures only outrageous off-field buffoonery will deflect his inability to give a brand name institution a good football team ..... Harbaugh craves the spotlight and really isn't worried about what those paying for the tickets think ....

The Game is the greatest rivalry in sports, but as long as Jim Harbaugh remains head man at TTUN, I'm afraid that your fans will be suffering through an extended period of losses to their rivals (Harbaugh couldn't beat a single team with a winning record this season) ..... Wish I could offer you some hope - but right now, there really is no silver lining for the fan base of TTUN .....

Comment 01 Jan 2018

Howard is an ass clown and a sissy (wearing gloves with his suit on the Game Day set today) .... if he lived in Canada, he'd be laughed out of the country for wearing gloves (maybe he should have worn those little mittens with the strings tied to them, so he won't lose them ....) ....

Comment 01 Jan 2018

Hahahahaha - Jim Harbaugh (QB guru) ..... hahahahahaha ..... not only are they not getting better under Hairball, they are getting worse ...... Oh please come back for another season, Hairball, please, please come back - take your shirt off, climb a tree, drink some milk, but get over this humiliating loss and come back and do it all over again next season ..... Hahahahaha .....

One word of caution for OSU fans living in the cities up north - please stay away from tall buildings and bridges for the next week or so, or at least keep your eyes looking up, as I predict a good number of the Puke & Blue faithful will be hurling themselves off of tall objects in the hopes of ending their misery ..... Just be careful, Buckeye faithful .....

Comment 01 Jan 2018

Once again, the Puke & Blue disgrace the BIG conference by being the only team in our conference to lose a Bowl game (as most predicted they would) ..... Thanks for blowing a 20 point lead in the second half - a masterful job of coaching, Hairball ..... Wow .....

Comment 31 Dec 2017

During the broadcast, the camera was panning around the stadium and would show close-ups of the crowd - 85% were showing OSU fans and the camera struggled to find anyone wearing Trojan colors ..... Definitely a home game for the good guys !!!

Comment 31 Dec 2017

Appreciate it - see your point as well ..... Wishing you the very best of things for the coming Year, Stuckupnorth and hope your handle means you're stuck in a nice part of Canada (which part, by the way) .... I'm born and raised in the nation's capital (same place Jesse Palmer's from ....) .... Happy New Year !!

Comment 31 Dec 2017

No chance - Trevor Matich from ESPN has already stated, before the Bowl games began, that the BIG conference is the weakest of all conferences and since the Bowl games have us sitting at 7 - 0, he's moved us up to 2nd worst .... since his word is gospel, I guess we can expect OSU, Wisconsin and PSU to now drop out of the top 10 and be replaced by Tennessee and a few other SEC bottom feeders, since they are the best conference, according to Trevor Matich ..... Quick question did Trevor play any football beyond Pop Warner, or is he just stupid, fat guy with a big mouth ??  Just curious .....

Comment 31 Dec 2017

Hahaha - coached O-Line for over 20 years on both sides of the border .... once you put your hand on the ground, the rules are the same, LOL !!  Have a great New Year, ChristianHaven !!!  Don't forget to have some Canadian back bacon on New Year's morning (secret Canadian cure for a hangover !!) .....

Comment 31 Dec 2017

Appreciate your take on this, but owners and coaches are getting fed up in dealing with spoiled brats, who pass themselves off as athletes.  There will always be teams who take that risk in drafting a great athlete, who they know has some issues (ego, legal, etc ....) in the hope that they can find a way to turn the player around and into a contributor and not a cancer on the team.  Some work out, some don't, but there is a reason for the interview process and why it has become more thorough than ever ....

If you want a good example of an NFL program that does things the right way (and their results back it up), look no further than the Patriots.  I've worked summer camps with Patriot players and coaches in the past and can tell you that they place a HUGE emphasis on the quality of character in a player, at least as much as the player's athletic abilities.  Every player they consider has their college degree and is articulate.  They don't draft players who can bench 450 lbs, but have the IQ of the barbell they're lifting.  Smart, team-oriented and athletically talented players - that's the simple formula for success in the NFL and the Patriots have got the rings to prove it .....

Comment 31 Dec 2017

This is PERFECT !!!   All of the BIG teams have won their Bowl games and now we're down to the Puke & Blue facing an SEC team.  They will either shit the bed and be ridiculed for being the only BIG team NOT to win their Bowl game and spoil our perfect record, OR, they will beat the cocks off of those Gamecocks and the BIG will emerge as the undefeated champion of the Bowl season, with a perfect 8 - 0 record .... it's a win-win, no matter the outcome .....

I'll bet that Hairball was tossing and turning all night, sweating his bag off about this game.  The fan base (all 6 of them) must also be shitting their pants, since they know that losing this game makes their team the laughing stock of the entire BIG conference (come to think of it, they're probably used to be the laughing stock of the conference by now) ....

As much as I hate TTUN and that psychopath, Hairball, I would still like to see the BIG run the table and then have the committee sit back and try to figure out if their system of putting the best teams in the playoffs really works, especially since there are no BIG teams in the 4-team playoff and two ESPN (SEC) teams in the top 4, while their conference is a pathetic 1 - 3 in Bowl game appearances ??
