And to imagine that the white out is only yards away from the Penn State football showers, home of the worst atmosphere in college football.
I've never been a fan of the Costume Wars that all teams seem to now engage in. Especially since Ohio State's home uniforms are one of the best in all of sports. The "alternate" uniforms never, ever look as good as the real thing. I know its in part to impress 17 year olds, but I wish it would all go away.
I'm a Buckeye transplant in Birmingham, AL. I don't see this bias at all. Ohio State has a lot of respect around here. I get the "us against the world" for motivation, but I think it's not real. No more than those at Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma can say it.
Janis Joplin was a great talent. Pearl is a fantastic album. I've been on a big Dylan kick lately and I'm going to take a break from that to listen to Pearl from the top.
The sad thing about this scenario is that it will ruin the rivalry. As it stands, this rivalry is not nearly as good as it was when it was more even. A team you beat every year isn't a rival; it's Indiana. If you want the Michigan game to become another Indiana game on the schedule - to be a rival in name only, then I guess them turning into Rutgers is good. As much as I hate losing to Michigan, I wish it would happen once in awhile so this game can recapture the spirit it once had.
He was referring to Big Ten champions only because he never won a NC. Had he ever done that, rest assured this quote would have been directly linked to that.
Michigan Football...dominated midwestern colleges during the Guilded Age like no one else!!!!!
BO: Those who stay will be champions.
KID: Wow coach! You stayed a long, long time. How many championships did you win?
Worst decision to build that stupid Schott. That place has as much character as a shopping mall. St. John was a classic college barn. I have so many great memories in that place. The best atmosphere in the Schott will never touch St. John Arena. Awesome,.awesome place. Probably the same jackasses that trademarked "THE" are the ones that got the bright idea that instead of sharing the new Columbus downtown arena for special events, let's build our own soulless box.
1. 1998: Ohio State would take MSU easily. Quietest trip out of the stadium ever.
2. 1995: Ohio State would beat UM by 2-3 touchdowns.
3. 1991: Robert Smith would become a doctor.
4. Many tiems: "Art Schlichter has finally learned his lesson"
5. 1978: "Just watch, Woody's going to hit Charlie Bauman with a LEFT hook."
I hate losing to Michigan. But that game was much more fun when we did lose half the time. I grew up in the 70s nad 80s. The game meant a lot because we did lose it about half the time - there was a lot on the line. Now it is a rivalry in name only. If Michigan were to win a few in close succession, it would get better, But no matter how many gold pants, TTUN acronyms, no "m"s on the signs, "don't give a damn" songs, etc, you cannot manufacture a rivalry with propaganda. Yes, Michigan had hubris in the 90s. But the last 18 years are twice as lopsided as that was.
Also, just like the playoff has ruined the bowl games, the Big Ten championship game would have taken a lot away from the Michigan game even if UM were more competitive.
This is public relations disaster. I don't know how many overpaid administrators it took to make this decision, but it makes you really question if any of them have an ounce of common sense. Splitting legal hairs aside, it looks like something a middle school project team would have tried for. The guy who is the university's spokesman who said that it is all about enhancing the teaching and research mission of the school should have his head examined. Everyone knows this is a money grab to sell more gear to fools looking to part with their money. The first idiot that walks around Lane Ave. on game day with a "THE" cap on will confirm the idiocy involved here.
I am embarrassed to have my degree today. I hope the Ohio State Football University comes to its senses. Just say it was a joke or something.
Let's be honest: Led Zeppelin is the most overrated band of all time. They're like the Andy Warhol of rock: not very good, but everyone insists they're great. They had one great album, Led Zeppelin IV. The others:
- Led Zeppelin I: Mediocre covers and terrible originals (listening to "Dazed and Confused" is like reading the dictionary)
- Led Zeppelin II: Two good songs, a couple of mediocre and the rest horrible.
- Led Zeppelin III: Simply a horrible, horrible album. \
- Houses of the Holy: A pedophile's dream with blah music
- Physical Graffiti: Rock star excess, "Oh man, we're musical geniuses. Nothing belongs on the cutting room floor. Every time we fart, it's worthy of being recorded."
- Presence: If there could be a worse album than III, this may be the only contender.
- In Through the Out Door: "All of My Love" sounds like Kenny G.
- Coda: Those were outtakes that were not judged good enough to put on some really bad records. They should have been kept that way.
- Song Remains the Same: The most pretentious undertaking a band could take. Zeppelin sounded horrible live. Why you would every want to record that, let alone listen to it, is beyond me. The only thing more painful than hearing it is watching that self-indulgent movie. That thing should get the Razzie for worst film of all time.
