Michigan vs. Ohio State Open Thread

Well, it would rank up there with the greatest upsets in the storied rivalry.  But we can hope!

And if anybody can help make it happen, it's the speedster below.

Go Blue!

Though skies are dark and the coast is bleak
and the storm is wild and fierce
it's frozen flake on a upturned cheek
of the pilgrim melts in tears
and the dawn that springs from the darkness there
is the morning light of an answered prayer -- Liberty by JWR
GO BLUE

Catie said...

Andrew must be a Political Science Major! Nice Quote!

Hail to the Victors, Valiant, hail to the conquering heros, Hail Hail to Michigan the leaders and the best!


GO BLUE!!!

Not sure I would use a native son of Indiana for inspiration in a football game.

Just sayin'.

I hope your team trainers brought a body bag for DR. He may be a target for mayhem. Of course, the stars could be aligned and he rushes for 300 yds. And that is why we play "THE GAME."

Seriously, I hope it is a spirited contest and both teams bring honor to their schools. However, don't even think about winning.

Yer buddy,

I got alcohol ready so who knows. I may be busy getting the Christmas crap down from the attic before half time though.

Catie did you find hockey tickets? email me at kpete879 at att.net I "may" have 2 available. Step kids no longer going and we're waiting on word from a couple friends on if they'd want to go but we have 4 tickets. Well GoBlueBob is holding them for us! I'm giving the friend till the end of the weekend to let us know.

They came to bury Michigan, all wrapped in Maize and Blue
The words were said, the prayers were read and everybody cried.
But when they closed the coffin, there was someone else inside!
The Bucks came to bury the Wolverines, but Michigan wasn’t dead!
And when the game was over, it was someone else instead!
Twenty-two Michigan Wolverines put on the gloves of grey,
And as Rivelli played ‘The Victors’, they laid Jim Tressel away!”

Go Blue!!!

I think Desmond is a closet Buckeye fan. He's wearing a scarlet tie.

Andrew said...

KillaB43 -- kicking it...sweet....good stuff
Lets go BLUE!!! Beat tosu

Catie said...

Ham, just sent you an email. Let me know! That would be so awesome!

Yost said...

Man, I love M/OSU Day!

bigGexpress said...

I agree Yost, GO BLUE!!!

bigGexpress said...

Man those OSU unis are egregious. What are they thinking.

whetstonebuck said...

Extremely ugly iniforms. Blech!

OSU's are ugly too.

bigGexpress said...

Haha! Gameday was just talking about Harbaugh rumors. Desmond said he would be hesitant to believe it before it was officially announced because we've seen the whole former Michigan player coming in to coach before announced by someone prematurely. Anyone think he is running a possible block on Herbie this time?

bigGexpress said...

Why does it seem like Millen calls all of our games?

Bigasshammm said...

We fucking suck. The defense does good and the offense/Denard shit's the bed again.

For those of you following Facebook my over under was 70. Which was either points or ounces of alcohol ingested. So far alcohol leads 36 to 10.

Catie emailed you back.
Will let you know.

Bigasshammm said...

Can we punch it in from 1 inch?

Bigasshammm said...

Seriously we can't go another year with RR. This is the worst coached team I have ever seen. He needs to accept his role as an OC and give up the head coaching dream.

srudoff said...

Roundtree playing the role of Braylon Edwards to a tee.

bigGexpress said...

Geesh! I can't take these turnovers anymore!

Andy said...

Hey Sru. Fuck off.

Bigasshammm said...

I think all of college football should be like Jordan Kovacs. He earned his scholarship and damned if he doesn't deserve it for the way he plays.

Bigasshammm said...

Halftime update

Beer/alcohol 60 - football players 31

so if you bet on the alcohol it's looking real good for you. If you went the double double route there's still a chance. Michigan can turn the ball over a few more times I'm sure.

bigGexpress said...

Come on BAH! I know you have another 60 in you for the second half.

Bigasshammm said...

Big that all depends on if I turn the game off shortly after kickoff or if I stick it out.

bigGexpress said...

More yards and more time of possession in the first half. Unfortunately we were also more sucky.

Yost said...

This is so sad, D finally looks decent and the rest of the team implodes. WTF?!!?

Bigasshammm said...

At this point Gerg keeps his job and RR gets fired.

TitleIX said...

Oh the pain.....

Andy said...

Nike is now responsible for two unsportsmanlike penalties against the buckeyes. Brilliant idea to put an "O" on the palms of their gloves...

srudoff said...

Hey happy holidays to you too Andy - guess I'll have to think twice about reading this forum with my 11 year old son next to me.

Andrew said...

as Charlie Brown would say....UUUUuuuuGGGggggg.......

Bigasshammm said...

Again



We suck

fire everyone

Andy said...

I have an idea Sru.... Why don't you go away and never come back. Your input here is designed to do nothing but antagonize people. I and most everyone else has had enough.

srudoff said...

so in a thread of 50 comments where the last 40 are negative, my one comment puts you over the edge. stop deflecting

Bigasshammm said...

See to me living in Fuckeye land I see Sru as actually a low level Fuckeye ban. The level of ignorance and hatred in this state is ridiculous. I'll have my 2 year old girl with me and have an M hat and people will start shouting obscenities in the shopping mall. It's ridiculous and show's the class of a typical tUos fan.

srudoff said...

Yeah ham - andy's post was true true class

TitleIX said...

sru dont poke the bear.

srudoff said...

same with your f*eye land comments

you guys are class all the way

srudoff said...

the bear is dead t9

you guys are deflecting your pain of the richrod era toward one person

Bigasshammm said...

See I somewhat support him and he goes that route.

Sru you clearly are an osu fan.

TitleIX said...

Seriously guys. Stick to the game. Sru we really dont need any help disparaging our own team. You wonder why so much animus? It's because your comments are poorly timed and while perhaps funny on a tUOS blog, they go over like a lead balloon here...

bigGexpress said...

Somebody please speak peace to me. Tell me there is no way RR is at Michigan next year. What is the likelihood that Brandon actually keeps him? I know tonight is not possible since Stanford plays at 7:30, but I can't see any problem with having Harbaugh in A2 by say, noon tomorrow. Is there anyway Brandon keeps RR?

Andy said...

Sru

I am shocked you would come to a site called "The MZone" and see negative things about the ohio state buckeyes during the game.

You are a pot-stirring douche bag. The image you use for you avatar says it all. Your entire contribution to this community is nothing more than a constant drum beat of idiotic comments. For years I have mostly laughed them off, but I am sick of it.

Go away. Never come back.

Bigasshammm said...

My game is done. Time for Gran Turismo 5.

I hope to hear many firings in the next few days.

TitleIX said...

Everybody is getting chippy here. It is bad enough our kids have imploded, we have no kicking game, and our defense is porous.

srudoff said...

understood t9 fwiw i made one comment in a blowout.


i shoulda stuck to my "Roundtree giving Michigan the Shaft" comment i was going to go with but i didn't know if everyone here was old enough to get it.

Andy said...

Sean McDonough & Matt Millen openly campaigning for Jim Harbaugh.

This is a nightmare.

srudoff said...

Harbaugh will restore The Rivalry back to what it should be. May take him a year or two to get his style with the current roster but he'll get it there. Most Buckeye fans are praying some NFL team comes calling for him.

Yost said...

Sadly, I'm not sure it will happen. Brandon *claims* he's waiting until after the bowl game to make a decision. That would be TOO LATE.

Even worse, you see RR's body language on the sideline? It's embarrassing. So defeated.

Andrew said...

numbing...just numbing....
watching some of the classic games on thanksgiving with such good D.....numbing....hate when we lose...worst to this tosu scum...
at least we are going to a bowl
just sucks we have to wait another to play The Game

BaggyPantsDevil said...

Matt Millen stated he would give Rich Rodriguez more time.  And he's a man who knows how to turn a football program around.

*sigh*

There just isn't enough alcohol in the world.

Andy said...

How sweet would it be to see TCU and Tosu meet in a BCS bowl? Gorgon Gee would be a nervous wreck.

whetstonebuck said...

TCU would have to beat "The Little Sisters of the Poor" to get there. Don't think that's going to happen.

Yost said...

Just used your line on MZ Twitter feed, Baggy. LOL!

Andrew said...

Gee is a moron...stupid Millen's only good observation was saying Gee didn't play football

TitleIX said...

We are in no-man's land with this coaching staff. Cant go forward cant go back

bigGexpress said...

I think this sums it up:

Andy said...

Can someone please try to make an argument as to why we should keep RR because our offense is so good?

We just hung 7 points on Ohio State.

Please Dave Brandon - make this nightmare end.

bigGexpress said...

I agree Andy and please end it now. Not after the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl when some NFL team has already signed Harbaugh.

Mikoyan said...

I started watching the game in the first quarter and when I saw that Michigan couldn't punch the ball in during its first two trips, I had a feeling it was going to be a long game. I didn't really want to watch another embarassment (as if the those scarlet uniforms weren't embarassing enough), so I decided to head to the zoo. Funny enough, the wolverines there were sleeping too.

John said...

Before we die, Michigan will beat Ohio State again.

GoBlueBob said...

John... I might not live that long.
