You start to believe the cold is some evil being when you've experienced 30 degree weather 2 days in the past 10 years and when every southern school recruiting you uses the weather as an excuse to stay in the south, well that only helps the narrative. Add in family proximity and seeing on the worldwide leader in sports that the SEC is the de facto leader in college football every year, it keeps your southern butt home! Also add in that you not only play a game for 3 hours but have to live in the snow, something you've never really experienced, it can be scary.
I try not to listen to or watch ESPN radio or TV but found myself on Wingo & Golic or vice versa on Monday morning on the drive to work. I thought it was interesting that they decided to use the AP poll #'s after LSU's win and referred to LSU as #1 and Bama as #4. I remember hearing prior that no other poll mattered once the playoff rankings came out. Just thought it was odd. I think we all knew LSU would be #1 and why argue but it really seemed like some lobbying was going on for poor Bama at #4. Is Bama one of the top 4 teams in the country? Probably but their resume is shit. Minnesota deserves that spot at the moment but they aren't a blue blood or SEC. Have a great day, Neighbors & Buckeye Fans!
That Wyatt Davis block made me say the F word and laugh hysterically during the game! Glad Mr. Cubelic caught it and tweeted it so that more could share my experience. I don't know how you would react any other way!
I totally agree about winning the B1G. It IS an accomplishment and the best we can do this year. I do expect a little havoc this weekend but I'm not counting on getting any help from other teams when we don't even know where our own team is at. I lost a little faith after the OU (fake OU, real one is in Athens baby!) but after seeing our horrible game plan and execution to match at Iowa, I'd like to win out and call it a pretty successful season as B1G champs and whatever NY6 bowl we get invited to. God I hope its a NY6!
I am starting to hate about 20% of the Buckeye fan base simply because they are so over the top obnoxious. I start to hesitate when talking about who I root for when out of state talking CFB.
Long time listener of Paul (sorry Pawwwl) Finebaum and I cringe every time a caller calls in claiming to be a Buckeye fan.
I hate PSU as much as TUN if not more now.
I hate the 3rd and long QB draw up the middle. Please Kevin Wilson, save us from this play call. Everyone knows we are going to do this and when we play vs real talent, it does not work at all.
This is only somewhat related to OSU but I hate hate hate Common Man and T Bone on 97.1 the fan. I guess most of my hate is directed toward Common Man. Is his name supposed to be ironic? It is a cool name but he is the biggest asshole I have ever heard on the radio. I guess I've never heard Skip or Stephen A on the radio though.
I've been saying since red shirting, he'd be at Auburn. I'll stand by this until his eligibility is done. Hope the best for him and he ends back up in OHIO, with Cincy.
