I hate waiting for evening games. And worse we'll be at a Chili party when the game starts so I won't even start watching it till 8:45 probably. Boo.

I don't think we'll have a problem though. 45-17

@ Dennis from post below.
Did she know you were a Buckeye?
If so then my hat is off to you. You had a real set!!!!

Dennis said...

We did talk about football. I made the Hoover Street Rag joke about how you guys invented this concept of tackling, etc. We also spoke about Hoke and how so far he seems to be a great fit. She also mentioned the last few seasons have started well and ended badly, but she thinks this year will be better. We even talked about OSU's troubles, and she only cackled with glee a little bit. :)

I'm heading to Toledo in a bit to photograph the Eagles.

Yost said...

LOL, Tom. I'm with you. If that day ever comes for me and I see a woman with OSU gear under her scrubs, I'm postponing. Or letting her stay for a less invasive procedure, like open heart surgery.

Mik you'll be happy to know there was a bald eagle flying over my house today. Have never seen one in the wild until now granted it was far too high to really see it. Can't miss that bright white head though. Huge bird too. Gorgeous.

Rigby said...

Not running it too well so far. That's fine so long as Denard keeps up the accuracy. Jump balls HO!

Mikoyan said...

I hate this fucking state.

Ramona said...

eh?

Yost said...

This is about as ugly as it gets.

Rigby said...

Denard knows we're in white this week, doesn't he?

Bigasshammm said...

Seriously why don't they put Gardner in and run denard in a tailback. He obviously doesn't fucking get this offense. Omw home now to drink heavily and actually watch the rest of this monstrosity.

Yost said...

LOL, Rigby. Just tweeted that.

Bigasshammm said...

Holy shit those passes weren't to anyone. WTF.

Ramona said...

We just have to make adjustments!

kristy said...

What is going on?!?! This is just ugly!! Tosu is up on Neb!!! Crap!! Where are the blockers for Denard? Where the heck is the Defense?! Did they stay home?! Wrap up the legs, boys! It isn't two hand touch!! Let's Go Blue!!!

Bigasshammm said...

That was a good bad and ugly drive but at least it worked.

Bigasshammm said...

This just goes to show I can not be somewhere else when a game is on. Now that I'm home they're winning. You're all welcome.

wingedhelmet said...

Much better! Had company and just got the game on as we were down 10.
Hello all and GO BLUE!

Bigasshammm said...

Winged and I can now no longer have any plans during M football games.



How was that not a penalty on ripping his head off? Wow shitty refs.

wingedhelmet said...

I knew it was a bad idea to be entertaining tonight. I am with you Big no more messing with my routine.

Rigby said...

Fix your audio, BTN. It's embarrassing.

surrounded in columbus said...

6-0! bowl eligible! the streak is alive again!

funny the difference a year makes?

WV? "gator", as in the last bowl game???

Yost said...

I think I can speak for all MZone readers in saying, based on his halftime comment: Thank goodness BAH isn't our coach!

Unreal. Talk about a tale of two halves. WOW!

GO BLUE! BEAT STATE!

Ramona said...

We made adjustments. Denard for the Heismann.

Bigasshammm said...

My comments were based solely on stats alone. Gardner did get some ood snaps in the secod half though. So I wasn't far off. Go huskers!

Yost said...

All in good fun, BAH. Put it this way: everything is all in good fun tonight after that comeback!

I didn't like seeing the first half, but we seem to be a second half team. I just knew that we were going to win. The Refs actually made SOME good calls......but they missed A LOT of holding and roughing the passer, plus, holy cow, Persa had his helmet ripped off by the facemask! As soon as I saw him throwing the football without his helmet I knew that he was going to penalized for that! There was ONE angle that wasn't obvious that we facemasked him, the rest of the views you could see him trying to get that helmet off his hand like it was a wad of bubble gum! No doubt he got a talking to about that, that would have given them the first down and kept them rolling. That was our gift for the night, and watching fitzy nearly implode was sort of fun too. (Although ANY coach would be doing that after that call!)

Bring on Dantonio, Of all the teams on our schedule, I want this win the most. Someone said to me the other night......in 2 years Dantonio will be at OSU. That just made my skin crawl. No doubt he is a good fit (slimy and all) but I highly doubt that will happen, plus he wouldn't be able to bring Tressel's brother with him!

Good Game, especially the second half. Go blue!

Bigasshammm said...

I wasn't far off my prediction. 45-17 and it turned out 42-24. I'll take that.
