Actually, it’s 100% a sensitivity issue. What the hell do real life issues have to do with someone making a Dave Chappelle reference? It’s insane. I don’t know what’s wrong with people these days, but all of you need to get over yourselves quickly. It’s embarrassing! The internet mobs are absolutely crazy.

You don’t have to agree with it due to some personal connection with your wife, but I’d like to think most of us would take a well known reference with a grain of salt instead of dumping all of our personal issues on someone for making a joke.

”What do you call a dead skunk?”


Great! Thanks for the response. Have you ever considered some form of mental therapy?

You do realize where you’re posting, right? Just checking. Might want to grow a thicker skin if you’re going to hang around an opposing team’s forum. If you aren’t used to the Joe Pa jabs by now, I honestly don’t know what to tell you.

Wow, this is why I barely post these days. What is this bandwagon nonsense?? NOTHING, NOTHING matters more than beating them. NOTHING.

How many of you even grew up in Ohio or went to Ohio State?? I’m embarrassed.

It’s every single day. Not the week of The Game, not the regular season, not the postseason. Every damn day we strive to beat them in everything. 

The day any trophy in existence is more important than beating that school is the day The Ohio State University dies and Woody turns over in his grave.

I don’t know, but there is something to the Kenny Chesney thing at TOSU. This dates back to Laurinaitis. I used to wonder how you get amped before a game like that... especially at LB. Do whatever you gotta do, Coach Day. I’ll just never understand what it is about Kenny that gets you as fired up as you were in the pile before kickoff, shoving guys around like a mosh pit. 

Are they listening to Kenny because it pisses them off? Sipping cold drinks on a beach when it’s October in Ohio and spitting cold rain? That must be it.

Agreed. If you go back and watch that game, Wisconsin isn’t playing with heart, excitement, high-energy, however you want to bill it. A TD against Illinois wasn’t celebrated with any thrill. We both know you won’t see that from them against the Buckeyes. Even if the Bucks are 40 points better on the field, the Badgers won’t be sleepwalking like they were against Illinois. They will come to play their best, which I don’t believe they did at all against Illinois.

Comment 25 Oct 2019

Except it isn’t... at all. Illinois just picked up their first ranked win in over a decade. Purdue knocked off three ranked opponents in 2018 alone, for comparison.

I agree with the rest of your take, but let’s never compare Illinois to Purdue until they prove to be capable of beating any other ranked opponent outside of Wisconsin for the next 10 years.

I was in Virginia right after the Bucks lost to your squad in 2014. Met many great Hokies that week, talking football. All were respectful and classy.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck the rest of the way.

Someone points out a flaw, you tell them “That’s just how it is” and prove the entire point of the article. I say they should have to join a conference or sit out of the CFP no matter how many times they go undefeated. Now tell me why your opinion is correct and mine isn’t. I’ll wait.

You see what happened with Baylor and TCU? Why are they different? Actually, haven’t heard much from them lately, so maybe they should treat Notre Dame the same and watch them crumble as well. They sure haven’t held up their end of the bargain on the off-chance they do have to play a ranked opponent.

I was at that Indiana game. Spent the entire morning walking around campus, so I was out all day in it. It was pretty damn cold. The stands were emptying out early. Fun times, but I was freezing to death on the walk back. I’ve never been so happy to enter a room and feel warmth. Still remember that one vividly, so I know it was a cold one. Crazy to think that was the last real snowfall during a game in Columbus.

Comment 29 Sep 2019

Okudah and Fuller were fun to watch after the game. Both of them had that ‘the college football world isn’t ready’ swagger in them, yet remained humble and focused. Good to see. 

It really feels like this team is willing to put it all on the line for each other this year. Combine that with all the talent and it could be a very scary thing for all opponents down the stretch. There’s a familiarity with this group that just feels electric.

I was up doing server maintenance at 4:AM. Makers already flowing. Started rumaki and have chili going for nachos. Hoping TSUN struggles all day. Watching my son build a replica of the World Trade in Minecraft. Tuning in for Coach Meyer on Big Noon Kickoff in a bit. 

Hell of a day to be a Buckeye, my friends!

Comment 04 Jul 2019

No one “jerked a knot” in his ass. Meyer called him an asshole. If your kid was acting like an asshole in a way that was directed at my kids, I’d be quick to point it out and hope you would do the same. Also, it’s extremely PC. 20 years ago this wouldn’t even be a discussion, otherwise Woody wouldn’t still be receiving praise around here after knocking a kid in the head. Agree to disagree to that point.

Thankfully, Urban doesn’t see eye to eye with this current cultural swing of the mouth monitoring, camera in your face so watch your tongue generation. I think it’s why he ultimately stepped down as head coach. That kid was an asshole and I applaud anyone at the leadership level for Ohio State not being afraid to say so. I’m just glad they didn’t give him a participation trophy when they got curb stomped.

The PC garbage gamut has gone too far. When you can’t call a college athlete an asshole for being an asshole because he’s a “kid” — things need to change. He would have had his helmet jerked around by his coach at the next practice in previous years for that behavior. Guaranteeing a win against your rival is disrespectful, so why not call it what it is? Sometimes it needs to be pointed out when young men are behaving like... well, assholes.

I agree things like this could cost him his job if they fall on the wrong ears, but I find that incredibly sad and disturbing. I’m sure he does as well.
