Lookin good today. Let's hope tomorrow looks as good. Some tough games tomorrow, Minn & ILL will need to be very good. What's your prediction for our game?

Any day scUM wins anything is a bad day
What kind of a rival would they be if they always lost. I want to beat a great team, so if they destroy a non B1G team in the tourney. I can celebrate having the talking heads eat their words.
Yeah. I mean how many times since 1999 has the B1G had two teams in the final 4? It was an uncanny run with a good chance for 2 (3?) This year.
Sorry Joe, I'm a Buckeye fan. Not a 10% scUM fan to make our rivalry look good. I'd rather they lose every game they ever play in every single sport and lose their D1 status before I want to see them win games that help their program or any game for that matter. I don't care about the media and public perception. It doesn't phase me what they think just as the opinions of all the biased OSU fans don't affect me.
It's Go Bucks or go home with me... I could care less what the rest of this conference does.
You have the be sarcastic. A Strong conference affects TV money, recruiting, the ability for me in North Carolina to watch my team play almost every game. I'm a buckeye fan to the core, but if we had a crappy rival and/or conference, the buckeye nation would suffer big time. I don't lose any sleep when Meatchicken loses to a non conference team, but I don't celebrate it either. Unless of course they get embarrassed by Appalacian.
Who is USC's rival because they aren't suffering at all and neither is that conference. Whether scUM is relevant or not, someone else will be. I'm Buckeye fan first... I could care less about stuff that has nothing to do with me. TV money my ass... There is such thing as the internet. And in 2013 you can watch every single OSU game online for absolutely FREE. You don't even need cable anymore to be honest. So all of that other stuff means nothing to me.
TV money means nothing to you? How do you think we get the greatest facilities and pay for Urban Meyers? Recruiting means nothing to you? The tradition of playing "The Game" in late November means nothing to you? Then you must be one those drunk freshmen that funk out after one fall term each year and end up flipping burgers. They think they are fan too!
And you think that those things were lacking pre-BTN? The conference was better before the network came along. Schools were more competitive before the BTN. The conference recruits like shit and have always had great facilities. Thats just icing on the cake. CFB is cash cow and always has been. Don't pretend that these big new TV deals have saved CFB because it hasn't. It's simply helped and still has nothing to do with how good scUM is. And don't worry about who I am or what I do. Stick to the topic...
