Only listened to the first 18 min, but he came across more well spoken and calm than I was expecting.
You've just go to change the way you look at it. Don't look at it like you're rooting FOR them, you just aren't rooting against them in a way that benefits us. I get that people hate UM, but the way some people want them to lose every game is like stepping over a dollar to pick up a dime. A good UM team, that we beat, helps us way more than beating a 4-7 team. Additionally, if they are constantly putting 4-7/3-8 teams on the field when they play us what we know as The Game will eventually be a distant memory that only a few people care about.
Not sure what camp I fall in, but I HATE noon games. The energy sucks, you don’t have as much time to tailgate, and there is no building of anticipation throughout the day. Elite teams/games should be placed in prime time slots.
The downvotes are probably because brutusb is notorious for taking digs at osu any chance he gets. Even if its an article that doesn’t even involve osu.
Seeing as he has 60 upvotes and only 11 downvotes for that comment, I don't think your claim holds any weight.
Bingo! This is why you'll occasionally see fields with grass WAY higher than it should be. I can't remember which school it was, but they admitted they cut the grass higher to help slow down a more athletic team.
but Jones wasn’t good enough to put up good stats? Even against sub par teams?
Stats mean jack shit to NFL scouts...they care about talent, potential, mechanics, measurables, etc. WAY more than college stats. Of course they want to see how you perform in games, but performance and stats don't always go hand in hand.
You're acting as if Jones got drafted 3 rounds too high...he probably wouldn't have made it past pick15 anyway. There are TONS of instances of QB's being drafted based on measurables and potential over stats and college production. Cincinnati could, and should have, taken him. But they passed too. Not everyone is going to think he's the best QB in this class...and that's ok. It's nothing to get upset about and comparing the #6 pick in the draft to our 3rd string walk on back up is QUITE the reach.
Fockin go out and earn it and wait until you reach a higher paying job just like all the rest of the world has and had to do.
I agree with where you're coming from, but in THIS situation you're comparing apples to hubcaps...it's not the same thing.
I don’t agree with you a lot, but a-freaking-men on this. The draft is over, Haskins landed in a much better situation than what he would have in NY. There’s really no need to worry/care about this anymore.
So your saying OSU’s walk on QBs should be NFL draft picks?
This OP idea will not address that and hence will fail also
I don't know about that, I think he's on to something. The reason most of these leagues fail is money...they can't whether the storm for the first few years of unprofitability. They are in unprofitable, in part, due to not having a consistent fanbase to generate revenue. If you can build a loyal following with the model mentioned, which is easier than placing some random team in a city 500 miles away, then it might have a shot.
Only, when OUR players act that way it's confidence and we as fans celebrate it. What else do you want/expect their players to say? "Umm, OSU is better than us, the media overrates us so we should probably not even show up"? Come on, we take this shit too seriously sometimes.They are out rivals, they're supposed to talk shit.
Uh, that's some tricky mental gymnastics there. When I went to school, I didn't have anyone paying for my drinks/food because I got an A on my Econ exam.
I agree, it's embarrassing that SOME of our fans think it's cute to laugh at someone's misfortunes as it pertains to their future just because they went to UM. Once they graduate/leave, I have no issues with them any longer. We forget, these are people who are trying to start their career...the time for pettiness should be over.
Or when you cant refrain from commenting on a specific subject
What came first, the chicken or the egg?
And the chickenshit downvotes from burner accounts prove my point.
Oh I agree about the stipend money, just saying it’s less likely parents are giving kids stacks of cash. Some money, yes. But Instagram money? That’s either stipend money or from a source we won’t like(more likely stipend).
Most of these kids come from pretty well to do families. Even the black kids. It’s not all inner city poverty like some people think.
Youre reaching a bit with this one. Even if we’re to believe a lot of these kids aren’t from the inner city, which is believeabe, how believable is it that there are that many families out there who can afford to drop 5-10k in cash to their kids?
Don't tell me you believe Ohio state gave Damon Arnette Cash
Nope, but if a Bama player did this you’re fooling yourself if you don’t think OSU fans would be screaming about bagmen at the top of their lungs.
You know you have a complex when your first thought is about ESPN.
When did anyone compare the two schools in all of this discussion?
Seriously? Is this a real question?
Why are you always ready to argue with OSU fans?
I could give a morning shit if you're an OSU fan, a UM fan, or a fan for whoever...if you're pushing BS I have right to say my piece just as much as you. If you don't like when people don't drink the kool-aid and are willing to go against the group think then that's your issue, not mine.
I mean, come one now. Are we as OSU fans really trying to say UM isn't a better school by nearly all acceptable, measurable standards? I don't know why some of us have such a hard time admitting this? It doesn't make OSU a bad school, we're a great school. But UM is just a little bit better(strictly from an academic standpoint). It's sure as shit not something I lose sleep over.
Exhibit 87 of distorting/cherry picking stats. I see you are conveniently ignoring that the human being, who works for ESPN, went out of his way to state in the article attached to the poll that OSU was ranked too low. But please, keep looking for things to be mad about.
