But what does that mean? Because 3 of the last four or five went down to wire.
Don't squeeze the Charmin!!
Not hard to understand at all. You overvalue what happens at the end of the game at the expense of what occurred before. Much like the people who think Cardale won us a title because he was the starter in the last three games not realizing that without the efforts in the games before it, there would have been no title. Just say Haskins played a key role in helping us win that game rather than saying Haskns won it. Problem solved.
Saying we won thanks to Haskins is just another way of saying what he said.
We won thanks to all the efforts of the players who played including Haskins. Stop spinning false narratives.
@ Michibuck, Haskins winning us the game is the fake narrative. You suffer from the myopic recency-primacy bias. We needed the 14 point comeback before that to put Haskins in that position for him to be heroic. And some defense stops. And UM screwing up/not taking advantage. You know this is true because if you add up the points that Haskins's drives produced it isn't enough to win the game. It really isn't more complicated than this.
MAYBe the rivalry is our gift and not theirs. What do you want more—preservation of the rivalry or wins over TTUN? Choose carefully because they are indeed mutually exclusive, at least some years.
Wrong. The players that played won us that game. That includes both Haskins and JT. We needed the comeback from 14 down and Hastins heroics. We have no idea how that game pans out if JT or Haskins play the whole game. Keep spouting fake narratives if it makes you feel better about your opinions, the rest of us will focus on what actually happened.
From your lips to God’s ear. Right now it feels like Tuscalucifer will coach another 45 years.
Guess you missed 2014-15 Championship Guy. Funny I didn't hear a lot of complaints from the cheap seats that year. And spare me the false narrative of Cardale winning it for us with a downfield passing attack, because that ain't what happened.
Thank you Championship Guy for the steamin' hot take on JT. Hopefully one day for your sake you will be able to let it go.
Yours is a very rational take. I just can’t do it man.
Let me ask a serious question: what is more important to you, preserving the rivalry or beating them as many times as possible? Because logic dictates that if they get better they likely beat OSU more. Think about it before responding, because it might really be an either/or proposition.
Agree 100%. I made this clear elsewhere on this page so I won't repeat myself.
I will never understand how any self-respecting Buckeye fan could root for them ever. If OSU was in the situation where we could win the conference if TTUN won their second to last game then we beat them, I root against TTUN and curse Ohio State for putting me in that situation. NEVER FORGET THE NINETIES PEOPLE (and if you are too young, read about it. It was infuriating to live through that).
I want Michigan to be good
I will never understand this sentiment (and I am thinking it is said by some too young to know about the nineties). I suspect people who say this will really only get it if the rivalry shifts and they start beating us semi-regularly.
I believe William said Meyer’s career was on the downside which is not the same as retiring. That is definitely more subjective.
I have always said I want the kids that want to be Buckeyes. Carman rubbed me the wrong way with his tweets and his fake indignity over people assuming an Ohio kid would want to be a Buckeye and I am glad he went elsewhere. Many think we upgraded. We shall see.
I don't see their O line improving much. MGO is beside themselves they won't fire Drevno. Their new savior is Patterson. God help them if he isn't eligible this year (I think he will be, but if not, it will get real ugly over there).
I am proud to say that I did down vote this. If you are down to reciting commercial jingles, you really have nothing to say. And this one is just stupid.
There are no academic standards at places like Notre Dame, Stanford, and Northwestern.
Let's just refer to Nick as Little Bear. Problem solved.
Follow the italics font my friend.
I don't know if we should keep a guy around who only has the one championship and who refuses to start the best quarterback on his roster. Bad move in my opinion.
I fail to see actual irony here. Irony like Alanis Morissette irony?
And for fun, the MGO blog meltdown (over news that ain’t even official):
From a friend who’is aTTUN fan FWIW:
Ohio State has no real track record of developing OTs under urban (Taylor decker, that’s ITA) and they’re still gonna get Nicholas petit-Freire. Fuck Ohio State. Wiltfong cb’d him to OSU. That means it’s as good as done also gleitman kurelic etc
