"You are red, we are blue! We all must die!"

The Daily Show was in Columbus all last week for their "Midwest Midterm Midtacular." I have to admit, I'm jealous of those Buckeyes for that. In the first segment from Thursday's show, the writers focused directly on the Michigan-tOSU rivalry. And they captured the experience of a Wolverine fan in Columbus pretty darn well.

Rob Riggle you are my hero

I believe Dan Bakkedahl did not provide the complete quote from the man who passed him in the quad: we all know the man said "Wooo!... Fuck Michigan!!" Then the unnamed Buckeye crapped in a cooler and rammed his car into a police cruiser.

Too funny!

As a Buckeye fan, in case you didn't know, FUCK MICHIGAN!. I'm proud to say that, we here in Ohio don't think we are better than anyone else. But people on this website seem to think they are better than us(and everyone else). The shit stinks in Michigan too. Go Bucks!

Anon 5:51, I believe you are correct about the stench, but only every other year in mid November.

Anon 5:51 -- Thanks for your contribution. It is creative thoughts and commentary like yours that is going to break down the barriers and prejudices that Michigan fan has about buckeye fan. Brilliant observation.

At last, I have an analogy that gives me a decent perspective on Sunni-Shia relations!

...so if we introduce football to Iraq, could we reduce the violence to something that just happens in November?

Yost said...

Anon 5:51,

Now why would anyone think they're better than a classy guy such as yourself?

Perhaps we here in Michigan should start saying FUCK OHIO!!! I mean would saying this make us a bigger fan of Michigan?? doubt it, You say your "proud" to say fuck michigan. Why be proud of sounding like a douchebag? I dont get it so i will scratch the FUCK OHIO, for the better and more and more supportive GO BLUE!!!!!!

...The best thing about the last five years is at least Buckeye fans finally get some grief in Ann Arbor.

The late 90's were so annoying, as we were not worthy of your animosity: "welcome to Ann Arbor. Glad to have you so we can seal our Big 10 title with an easy game. Would you like a beer or a hamburger from our tailgate? Please, really. Join us"

You guys shouldnt say that kind of stuff.
Let me re-state that comment.

If you want to field a competitive football team or maintain that facade of high class shared by most in SE Michigan, you shouldnt say that kind of stuff...but I digress...

What were we talking about again?

TitleIX said...

let's be practical guys....

would you ever really want to FUCK Ohio????? ugh ick pfhe

I mean, the Mr. Happy belonging to a Michigan fan has SOME limits, right???

Herringbone:

Glad to have you back.

Classy post on your blog last week. As always, your logic and perspective is mind-numbing. Your ability to weave that video into anything other than utter disgust is incredible. You really should move to Washington DC and take a job as a spin doctor.

My favorite: The arrogance is the issue with the OSU fans and the UM fans....always has...and always will be... So it was arrogance that caused random Michigan fans walking in columbus to be assaulted ?

Also, did you happen see Bo's comments on your favorite band the Dead Schembechlers in the Dispatch ? I'm glad that Bo has a good sense of humor. I just hope that someday some sick kid does not take them up on their anthem to "bomb A2"

Yost said...

LOL, bucknut83!

People don't say eff Michigan very much here. I've never actually heard a Buckeye fan say it.
I do know some very passionate Wolverine fans here in C'Bus and they represent you guys well. They don't hide their allegiance or cower at all. Someone in my subdivision mowed a giant M in their lawn. It was pretty good but he shocked his grass and it became rather permanent but in a dead sort of way.

Just when you think it couldn't get any better...

Props to Brian @ MGOBLOG for this one...

Is it frightening to anyone else that right after any buckeye fan says "You think your so much better than us...FUCK MICHIGAN!" they unwittingly prove our point for us. How long must we play this game?
What makes us better is our classy nonchalance about this bitter rivarlry. I mean for gods sake we can point out where we're from by pointing meaningfully at at our right hand...that just makes us better. Theeeey have a band called the Dead Schembechlers!
Ohio State = school in the summer time. NO CLASS!

Jon Stewart for President!!!!!

Andy...I alway come back for your "non-biased" well thought out comments..

While it might be nice to say that I can spin with the best Michigan fans around, I would also like to pass along the kudos that you so richly deserve. Your ability to take things out of context rivals that of a petty high school girl. I would think that a person could provide some insight to a video that showed some bad behavior and littering. Did I ever mention that it was OK that those people were tormented on campus? I dont recall making that statement, and that would be where your inability to reason with normal people will probably get you another year at the little kids table for Thanksgiving.

I was simply providing an OSU perspective to an outsider (Non-OSU/Non-UM) that may not understand the dynamic between the two fanbases (not condoning or reasoning poor behavior).

...was I really off-base with the arrogant comment?

DO you really think it would make a difference if UM fans were a little more humble in their approach to their school, other schools, and non-UM fans? I am not going to lie to you here...it would work wonders...I have been to Yost, the Big House, and Criser arena for games...my treatment was terrible at all three of the venues (Yes, even the 6 people that showed up at Crisler). I am not going to post articles on my blog about actual events, because it is trvial (FYI..in 1997 there were some confrontations, as well as projectiles being thrown my way in and out of the Big House). These things happen when you travel to places where you are not welcome...back to the arrogance thing...

I think it is safe to say that for every 1 non-arrogant UM fan there are 15 arrogant ones picking up the slack...whether they went to the school or not. Dont get me wrong, it could be worse. UM fans could be ND fans, but that is another story for another day.

I enjoy the M-Zone and it's ribbing of the OSU fans, but I thought the video was stupid, out of date, and simply irrlevant. There was a lot pent up frustration in Columbus on that day, which you will probably never see again..

Yes, I know that we have idiot fans. It has been chronicled, but then again...we are not the ones that wont admit it...

I bet if Ken Blackwell were a Michigan man, and if the Michigan seat would be more contested than the Ohio one, Jon Stewart would be in the much more open arms of Ann Arbor and the Big House.

You guys are better than everyone else, I kneel down in front of you and praise your greatness. Good luck against USC in Rose Bowl.

Maybe you'd hear 'F Michigan' more if you just let people read the shirt you're wearing out loud.

Don't pretend they don't say it that much in Columbus. I'm a UM fan in Columbus. I've heard it 3 times already today.

Andy said...

Herringbone:

You do realize that the video was created by the Ohio State University and published by the Dispatch -- as a way to acknowledge the problem with fan base. It was not (as you seem to claim) originally published by the M Zone or created by some random "axe grinder" seeking to dis-credit the buckeye nation.

As an olive branch to all that claim that wolverines and buckeye fans can never get along, I want to personally extend my deepest apologies for any harm or injury to you during you frequent visits to Ann Arbor.

Good luck this weekend against Northwestern and I look forward to the game on the 18th.
