The few times I've ventured over there (to spectate, never post), I've come across the word "BPONE", which I had assumed based on context was some sort of OSU troll similar to the few notorious M!ch!g@n trolls we've had here. This week I realized it's actually an acronym for "black pit of negative emotions". Apparently they go through this often enough that they have to abbreviate it to save time... and it's commonplace enough that they recognize the acronym.

Yep. Good coaches do more with less. Year 5 the team is 100% your guys, for better or worse, and they're worse. I could forgive getting in a bit of a shootout with Army. It's a tough team to defend. But it isn't a tough team to attack. Big Ten linemen should not be struggling to block people who had to worry about congressional nominations as part of their admissions process. Shea, whose hype train was off the tracks before his waiver was approved, can't even hold a football, let alone throw it. And Harbaugh doesn't understand what most of us knew at age 8 playing Madden: when it's 4th down in the 4th quarter of a tied game... Take the damn points. Harbaugh does less with more, and is well on his way toward having less. Kids aren't stupid, and the recruits see the lack of results, development, and any kind of plan.

The sky is blue and the grass is green. Any coach who puts up a 7 TD shutout over a top 30 team in his second game as coach deserves credit. Any coach who goes 1-9 against top ten teams and is oh-fer against his primary rival after four full seasons deserves criticism. You don't get credit for "admitting" the obvious.

And then the band blared "Hail to the Victors" like they had anything to do with the miss.

That isn't exactly what I meant. We always seem to take a quarter off, whether we're winning or not. We did it against Washington & Northwestern, against M!ch!g@n I'm sure you remember the 2 fumbles in 6 seconds... We even took a quarter off against Tulane. It's frustrating to see these guys flash their potential one minute and then lose focus the next against overmatched opponents.

I'm glad there were so many bright spots, but I really hoped this would be the week where we finally saw a complete game instead of the constant "3 good quarters of football" and "room to improve" of the past few years. These guys still have a lot to prove - we can't afford to coast like we did when Meyer was at the helm.

So for #3 they didn't ask him to retrieve it, but he knocked on their door and asked them to pay him afterward? Seems like a "call before you waste your time" scenario to me, but the rest are legit.
