After the showdown, the consensus among 'Cane fans was that Larry Coker might have made a mistake in suspending 48 of his players due to various "violations of team policy" like roughing up women.

The Buckeye Nation wants an official on-air apology or the WWL offices will be torched like off-campus couches near High Street due to comments made about their school during the FSU/Miami telecast.

Immediately after the on-air exchange, Ohio police reported a surge in smashed TV sets being tossed from trailer parks across the state.
In addition to the apology, Ohio State fans are also requiring ESPN to put up a blog so that angry Buckeyes may leave 6,000 largely incoherent, profanity laced rants in the comment section.
