Purdue Football Managers Mock Michigan at Big House

Maybe they should have waited until after the game...

In the clip below, a couple of Purdue football managers were inside the Big House ("setting up the field" according to YouTube) and decided to "recreate" the blocked FG that gave Appalachian State its victory over Michigan in A2 last month...



Funny stuff. I haven't laughed that hard since I watched the team that lost to Appy State crank slap Purdue 48-21 last Saturday.

Of course, these Purdue staff members had to reference the M/ASU game because to recreate a Purdue victory over Michigan in the Big House, they'd have to ask their grandparents what that would be like, as it hasn't happened since 1966.

Maybe if Joe Tiller's staff had prepared their team instead of being so busy making wacky YouTube clips on their opponent's field, they might not have been completely embarrassed last weekend.

Then again, what can you expect from folks associated with a coach who has his team kick an onside kick with :08 seconds left and down by 27 points (after having them kick another onside kick before that with under two minutes left and down by 34 points).

Ed. Note Update: Since it's hard to read tone sometimes in a post, for the record, I was actually more pissed off about Joe Tiller running onside kicks with :08 seconds left than the knuckleheads in the video above. I know we're going to be hearing about "that game" for a loooong time. Fair enough. Hell, we poked as much fun at our team as anybody after The Debacle.

But as T9 and a couple other commenters basically said about the clip above:

Making fun of Michigan on their own field...pretty funny.
Video taping it...kinda dumb.
Posting it on YouTube AFTER losing by 27 points?...Pricelessy stupid. And thus ripe for a little reverse mocking.

As I read this, my first thought was "maybe they should have actually been working..." and then you went and said that.

I think it's a rather strong testament to Michigan as a program to show the amount of heart (and Hart) it has since falling to 0-2. I wouldn't have minded a 1-3 start from y'all, but it says more that UM bounced back than it would have if it rolled through. Good luck the rest of the way and give OSU their second loss.

Katie said...

Ok, my question is, after losing so terribly......would you put that up on Utube?? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that is a stupid idea. We may be the team that lost to Appy State, but (as has been said before) they are the team that lost to the team that lost to Appy State........aside from the fact that it is amazing disrespectful to do that in OUR house. I guess this proves that we are a better team, in more ways than one.

Da Braylon said...

I believe the word "assholes" comes to mind.

No, that's not right. Maybe the words "pieces of shit?"

Nah, too nice. How about "losers?" That is better since we fucking destroyed those fuckface shitbreak faggots.

Mikoyan said...

I think morons is more appropriate. It's one thing to make the video. I can understand cutting loose a little bit. But to put it on Youtube AFTER you have lost so badly takes a pair.

Andy said...

I look at it this way... This is the only color video ever captured of someone linked to Purdue football program celebrating a win on the turf of Michigan Stadium.

Good job boilermaker guys -- you have captured history !!!

schwatt09 said...

Haha, u of m lost to app state, nothing you can say about that.

good call, expanding the crap house so even more fans can watch a team blow thru millions of dollars in recruits that go 8-3

any chance it will be done on nov 17th? i'm sure a few thousand more fans would enjoy another beat down of Llllloyd by the sweater vest

Dex said...

those are some angry comments.

we did lose to app state, i mean, it happened. and it's going to be a punchline, possibly forever. haven't you folks moved from "irrational anger" to "humorous pratfall" yet?

MGoBlue93 said...

Stay classy schwatt09

WingRG said...

schwatt,

it's idiots like you that are the reason people are tired of ignorant buckeye fans on this site. Disrespecting the tradition that is the "Big House" means disrespecting cfb tradition. Go back to your trailer.

The rest of you guys might be over-reacting just a little bit, i mean, these aren't players doing this, it's managers (whatever they do). They wanted to have a memory that they could take home from the Big House (along with the ass whooping that their team got). It's silly, but it's all in good fun, IMHO.

TitleIX said...

hmmmmm

1) Making fun of Michigan on their own field.....kinda funny
2) Making a video of said ridicule...kinda dumb
3) Posting video on YouTube?...
PRICELESSLY IDIOTIC

schwatt09 said...

i've moved on to "humorous pratfall" cracks me up anytime i see anything relating to it

u of m deserves anything that comes their way after losing to app state, this has to be expected, to defend it only makes it worse

schwatt09 said...

WingRG,

i guess we're writing letters...

losing to a 1-aa school is disrespectful to the crap house, much worse than any stupid post i can put on some stupid site.

i've been to louder stadiums with half the capacity, what's the point? Hardly tradition when it changes every 10 years

what are you going to do about it, throw a marshmallow at me, oh no make it stop!

Sincerely,

Schwatt

WingRG said...

Schwatt,
i don't think you know anything about college football. Appalachian State is a very good team, no matter which designation they have, or how many scholarships they offer. Every program goes through down turns, and kicking UM when it's down isn't the smartest thing for any OSU fan.
If you don't respect your hosts (and people that host this site are UM fans), you're a shitty guest, and you should leave.

surrounded in columbus said...

This is what happens when the game passes your coach by- people end up laughing at you. Doesn't matter if they'd be smarter not to, you're still a joke. That's what Lloyd's done to the program. Winning out the schedule & beating Oregon in a Rose Bowl rematch won't change that.

Were these kids from Purdue stupid to post this after their own beat down? Certainly. But "App St - Michigan" is a punchline for the rest this season. And smart or not, we're going to keep hearing it.

On the good side? Memories are short and by next season there will be something else- my bet it'll be ND's continued losing streak reaching "Duke" levels. But that's next year.

schwatt09 said...

WingRG,

Thank you for your response, you're right App State is the best program in the country, so good in fact I'm sure they will easily go undefeated. This year was a down year for michigan as can be expected with all that talent returning. I'm mixing up a glass of kool-aid now to excuse away the App State loss, thanks for the ingredients.

Thank you for enlightening me, a supposed osu fan, you do indeed know everything about me and college football, little did I know that blogspot.com was a UM site. I appreciate your time and effort spent corresponding with me. Best of luck in all your future endeavors.

Sincerely.

Schwatt, xoxo

WingRG said...

Dude,
i'm the last person selling michigan kool-aid, but there're lines of respect that you don't cross. If you don't understand that (after i tried explaining it to u twice) i got nothing else to say to u.

Dex said...

we should make fun of app state losing to wofford. that'll make us feel better!

/curious how fellow UM fans would have handled OSU losing to Youngstown ...surely it would have been pure "class"

The Dude said...

I jus wann say, Schwatt is right, Appalachain state is the best program in the country, shoot, last week we beat Northwestern louisana state tech A&M by fordy. I think tdem shirts with calvin peeing on michigan is right, AnnArbor is a whore. Yeee-haw go dale Jr!!!

TitleIX said...

Hey schwatty...
Point of clarification.
Is the 09 for your graduation date from High School or Grade School?

just checkin'

surrounded in columbus said...

Dex,
I'll bet no one would have run out & wasted money buying Penguin's gear.

schwatt09 said...

hey "chicks should be offered more scholarship sports than foxy boxing", i.e. TitleIX,


i didn't know there was graduation date, just signed up today to make fun of michigan fans.

maybe it's the default date. but we'll go with grade school, not sure why it matters. you want to go toe to toe with a grade school kid? maybe those marshmallows will hurt more

love,

schwatty

WingRG said...

SiC,
i don't know, that penguin is awfully cute.

At times to be silent is to lie. You will win because you have enough brute force. But you will not convince. For to convince you need to persuade. And in order to persuade you would need what you lack: Reason and right. ~ Miguel de Unamuno

schwatt09 said...

it's been real, i'm out for the day

i hope michigan runs the table leading into ohio state, the game is always best when both teams are playing good football.

best of luck with school

The Dude said...

I'm jus glad Al Gore invented the intranet! I cood talk about my favorite things with some people, App state, OSU and Dale Jr!! Hey remember when App State blocked 2 field goals , yeee-haw!!

TitleIX said...

schwatty
thanks for the props to the foxy boxing team.
we kick ass everyday of the week, and look damned great doing it, too.

a word to the wise while Yost is obviously away:
enough with the faux fencing of 'wit' --you'll lose everytime in this crowd.
And besides, it's SO pathetically pedantic and pedestrian (dictionary.com)

you want to play in our sandbox? that's cool as we welcome intellect and good-sportsmanship, but we don't take kindly to sand-throwers.

surrounded in columbus said...

Ok, I MIGHT have gone out & bought an Arnold Palmer vintage style munsingwear golf shirt (w/ their little penguin on it) but that's it. And only cause penguins are cute.

TitleIX said...

ps--
Katie

GO GIRL!
case and point!

Dex said...

i absolutely would have bought a YSU shirt. and i would have called my friend at OSU once a week, every week, for the rest of my life, whenever I saw the YSU score on espn.

TitleIX said...

dex---
I'm with you.
I would have been replete with YSU Penguin gear AND would have mailed some to my tOSU friends....

oh wait.
NO App State stuff my way PLEASE@!

Hemlock Philosopher said...

Twatt09 - Save the vitriol for Nov. 17th. You'll need it to face all those marshmallows. Just because Michigan fans don't throw feces and batteries at opposing fans and burn furniture doesn't mean we don't care. Go troll somewhere else.

OSU has never had class, save a few readers. I will go to any Big Ten stadium and have fun, except that toilet in Columbus. People there take the game way too seriously. Honestly, these are 20-year olds that bucknuts have become so emotionally invested in that they'd injure an opposing fan over. Grow up asshats!

Yeah its damn embarrassing to lose to Appy State and it sucks. But it takes pure idiocy to put that up after getting shellacked by the team you are mocking.

Andy said...

Schwatt: Welcome to the site. You are continuing a long line of buckeye fans educating us poor Michigan fans on how pathetic our program is.

I personally look forward to your thoughtful insight, superior football knowledge, and creative humor. Good luck in efforts to enlighten Wolverine fans everywhere and change the standard image we have of Ohio State fans.

Please feel free to stop by anytime as you are always welcome here.

WingRG said...

Hemlock,

i will take exception to you calling the 'Shoe a toilet bowl, while you're (and righfully so) chastising that idiot for mocking the Big House. If you have so much more class than us Buckeye fans, why don't you demonstrate some, instead of sinking to that dumb-ass's level.

Hemlock Philosopher said...

I lost my classiness when I moved to ohio.

The Dude said...

Hehe what's funny is you guys think Schwat is a buckeye fan, hehe I know him and he ain't. I like how this went from making fun of Michigan for losing to App State to "Well we're (Michigan fans) smarter than you (OSU fans)" especially when you're target ISN'T even a OSU fan and for the record he does have a more prestigeous degree than any of yours. Ivy league anyone? Who's smarter? the guy who riles up the Michigan fans anonymously without revealiing his loyalties, or the person who falls for the bait? Nice work, Michigan, Hail to the Victors!!

Andy said...

It must be troll season

Hemlock Philosopher said...

So Twat is an Ivy-league brainiac that anonymously trolls college football sites to piss off fans? Yeah, that's a real show of his intelligence.

All us simple Big Ten folk know that Ivy League is as much nepotism and grade fixing as it's real education. So these lofty claims of brain-busting degrees are not impressive - and most likely, a bunch of bullshit.

WingRG said...

Even if the TWAT had a degree from MIT, he lacked 2 things: common sense and class.

The Dude said...

Common sense and class? Seems like that post loses credibility when you start it with an inappropriate term for a part of the female anatomy, now that's class, good work Michigan! You can't be serious...

The Dude said...

Actually it's not trolling when you get directed here from deadspin.com. It's funny how the nation is mocking you. But continue Michigan, would you like another shovel to help dig that hole?

Hemlock Philosopher said...

And by bullshit, I mean a lie. Anyone can come on here and claim to be a Nobel laureate, anonymously. If he was so well educated, he could at least punctuate his posts correctly (the "shift" key makes capital letters). From his writings it appears as if he is an uneducated malcontent with a penchant for making noise.

WingRG said...

Now, who's the dumb one? You think i'm a UM fan? You might have an Ivy League education, but you surely can't read. As far as me calling you (cuz i'm pretty sure you and the TWAT are the same person) "an innapropriate term for a part of female anatomy" i'll call you what i want to call you. You got a lot of balls to question my credibility, buddy.

Hemlock Philosopher said...

I never claimed to be the king of Class. I'd probably be the guy pissing on your rug, Dude. By the way, its funny that you use that handle, when you definitely are not as cool as The Dude. He'd be out rolling a game as high as a kite, not trolling the Michigan blogs to get a rise.

The Dude said...

It's hard to question credibility if you know one has none. But ok brother. Do you think I care if you like UM or whoever? Nice civilized conversation we have here. Just hurl some explotives at me and beat your wife.

Hemlock Philosopher said...

Its foolish to ask if one thinks you care if we like Michigan. It's self-evident that you care by the simple fact that you come here and post to get a rise. If you didn't care that we are Michigan fans, then you wouldn't even troll here.

WingRG said...

Oh, i'm sorry, i guess your idea of civilized conversation is to come someplace and call your host's fooball stadium a "craphouse". I'll make sure i keep that in mind. When you come in and disrespect people that frequent this blog, you remove any possibility of being engaged in a civilized discussion. I don't know how many times i have to keep typing it, for you to get it.

"Those who want respect, give respect"

Katie said...

I really don't find pot stirrers as intelligent people, insecurity is their big trade mark. You Dude, are a pot stirrer, and your behavior does not show respect or intelligence. This post started as a look at what was a classless act by some guys from Purdue. We have laughed at ourselves over the Appy State loss, probably more than anyone else. We get that it is a joke, nevertheless, for a team that was totally creamed by us, it shows incredible stupidity to post that. That is all that is being said here, then the pot stirrers arrived and began a another classless act. Get Lost.

whetstonebuck said...

Hey,

Did I miss anything?

Yost said...

You and me both, WS. This is what I get for doing my job and attending that damn TPS report meeting this today.

Ok, time to be "the filter guy" from this point forward.

Who knew "Ivy League" trolls could be so witty.

kristy said...

Can't we all just get along? Is it time for some people to take naps?!I love coming to this site for all the comedy and banter and this string of posts has gotten overly serious and ugly.
Time out everyone. Back to your corners and deep breaths....

screw this- I'm going back to the eye candy from Hawaii!!
Feel free to post more pictures of the eye candy persuasion!!

Yost said...

Hey, wing and other Buck regulars,

I'm quick to criticize and I just want to be as quick to say thanks for attempting to keep things civilized while I was away this morning during our troll infestation.

You guys sticking up for Michigan, me sticking up for our Buck readers here. What the fuck kind of world do we live in these days, people?!

WingRG said...

Yost,
not a problem (i'm glad you're back, though).

I am grateful for our regular tOSU guys, you all rock!

Katie,
you did pretty well for yourself, you don't take no shit off nobody, that's for sure.

Hemlock Philosopher said...

I agree. It was Katie's stern comment that stopped the nonsense.

Thanks guys! It's the mother in me ;o) There are some incredibly witty people here. T9 is one of them that always impresses me with her wit! (Among many others of course!)

Wet Rock Buck: you've got my vote for "poster of the day" - for whatever it's worth. Things certainly have been lively here today... must mean November isn't far away.

Oh, and happy 79th birthday to Keith Jackson.

surrounded in columbus said...

Damn it, people, it's a trap! For all you know the tosu "regulars" created fake IDs, logged on & said nasty things, then logged back on as themselves to appear to be reasonable, thus luring us into a false sense of security and eventually getting Yost to let his guard down.

Believe me! Santa,the Easter Bunny, & "reasonable" buckeyes all live in the same place- imagination.

I wondered when this would surface.
I feel compelled to defend myself and the other "regulars," but my unmarked black helicopter needs servicing.

WingRG said...

SiC,
the only problem with your logic is that all the posts are traceable (sp?) by either the domain from which the user logs on or their IP. So, either me and WSBuck can exist in several different places at the same time (which is impossible even for the "evil Bucknuts") or you're a little paranoid :-)
But, of course, since we're on the UM site it's us, it's not you.

surrounded in columbus said...

you could all have multiple computers signed in under multiple IDs creating multiple blogger names. picture you all now in your lairs/mothers' basements w/ multiple screens/pc's/game cubes, wearing your troy smith jerseys, photo shopped pic of you and tressel in the back grounds...

and just cause i'm paranoid doesn't mean people aren't out to get me.

besides, whetstone never makes eye contact and wngrg is always looking down at the ground,shifting his weight from one foot to the other, and even you two suspect srudoff, so what's to trust?

whetstonebuck said...

wingrg,

"So, either me and WSBuck can exist in several different places at the same time (which is impossible even for the "evil Bucknuts")"

Uh, thanks for coming to the rescue, but I can, well, what I'm trying to say is...hmmm. Things are not always as they appear. Okay, here goes: I can be several places at once. Now, that's just between you and me so keep it on the down low.

Whatever you do don't tell SiC. He's on to me. I purposely don't make eye contact with him. To do so would reduce him to a heap of maize and blue ashes.
