You can claim recency bias to dispute this #take, but the 2019 game belongs on that list - perhaps as a combo with #9 - if for no other reason that the M!ch!g@n faithful saw this as Harbaugh's best chance to take back the B1G from a first-year coach and his first-year QB in Ann Arbor.
They have better talent, coaches, and facilities than anybody else (according to one of their players, who admittedly doesn't know what anybody else has - or that a play begins *after* the ball is snapped), so obviously the only explanation for their annual Gold Pants/bowl beatdown is that everyone else is cheating. The staffer in charge of Harbaugh's fabric softener is probably feeding information to us on the sly. Also, bagman, online classes, and illegal-but-somehow-also-publicized headphones... Who's got it better than them?
She certainly put more thought into the pick than Des did.
Anyone remember what they said in 2014? Or 2002?
I thought Clemson was going to be in white?
Sure you have! He's better known outside AA as "guy who jumped offsides on 4th & 4". He was a critical component of one of our many TD drives!
T-shirt production is the only thing that comes to mind.
Height is measured in the direction opposing gravity - I reject the idea of "north" as an acceptable interpretation of this kid's deluded statement. Vertical only equates to magnetic bearing on the second floor of Santa's workshop.
Imagine losing 8 times in a row... The last two by 4+ scores each... And saying this?
When he said "higher up", I thought the only thing he could possibly be talking about was elevation. I googled it, and even that isn't right. The city of Columbus itself has 62' on AA. It has to be drugs.
Don't forget the hookers and giant bags of money /s
Somebody needs to compile a "greatest hits" of the delusional things folks from AA come up with.
I ended up finding one on ebay (for way too much - but hey, it's Christmas!), but that site took our credit card info and never sent anything. I checked reviews and it has happened to a lot of other people too. It looks deceptively legit. :/

I just want to score a bunch and win. No Big Ten team has scored in the playoff since 2014. I don't want to hear that stat line ever again.

Jimmy himself guaranteed a win as a player. Talking to anyone about a shirt would be the height of hypocrisy (not that anyone in AA has ever had a problem with that)
False. Smart people make smart picks. The smart pick is to pick against TTUN in big games. Picking against TTUN in big games alienates TTUN fans. TTUN fans are the second largest fanbase in the sport. Alienating large fanbases means lost viewership, which means lost money.
It is in ESPN's best interest to keep stupid, biased people on television and call them "analysts".
Missed opportunity for "Close Encounters of the Turd Kind"
It helps us that Jimmy thinks this. All the recruits who were visiting yesterday saw the reality.
But the SEC is a hivemind and fans of the conference who live in Atlanta will run out and buy purple gear for the game.
It's a pretty easy drive, honestly. Save yourself some money.
When you can look at the Wikipedia article for The Game and we own the "Longest streak" and "All-time record" categories, *MAYBE* we can let our guard down ever-so-slightly. Until that time, they don't get off the mat. We step on their throat, we prepare all offseason, and we keep kicking that ass like it's never been kicked before.
How could I forget?! A true Cinderella story!
Success breeds success. Take a look at the Mgo boards and they all blame the talent gap on their coaches' recruiting (not development) as though it's Harbaugh's fault their most recent additions to their trophy case is a conference trophy that just turned 15 and a half a national title from before any of their current seniors were born.
Meanwhile kids come here, see our shiny new hardware, and then turn on the TV to see Zeke, Thomas, and the Bosas lighting it up in the League... Which team do you want to play for?
Maybe not the best choice of words...

But yeah, I'll take "We'll win the game or know the reason why" over "We'll lose the game and then whine about officiating and make vague assertions about bagmen"
I mean, how many custom T-shirts have we seen this team wear to the game vice wins? Maybe they're playing to their strengths? I bet the general studies program has a hell of a course on T-shirt design.
