The Buckeyes sit at 11-0 and Hate Week is here. Last night students participated in the annual Mirror Lake jump and tomorrow we settle in for Thanksgiving before the weekends fun begins. It’s Wednesday, let’s rumble!
Saturday at Ohio Stadium was both bitter sweet and bitter cold. Bitter sweet in that we said goodbye to the seniors (and Bradley Roby) and bitter cold because, well, it was cold and snowed like crazy for parts of the game with Indiana.
It’s truly incredible to think of where this senior class has been, or should I say been through. This is a group that was part of the Sugar Bowl winning team against Arkansas in January of 2011, went through the turmoil of “tat-gate”, lost their head coach, lost the Gator Bowl in January of 2012 and now sits on a 23 game school record breaking win streak.
I don’t know that there is a senor class that has gone through those type of massive ups and downs in their careers at Ohio State. You’d be very hard pressed to find one. It is a tribute to the character of them all that they stayed the course through the hard times and are now riding an unprecedented win streak into The Game and the upcoming bowl season where they will hopefully get a chance to play for the national championship.
They could have left, transferred to the schools of their choice. But they didn’t. It’s ironic that during Hate Week a quote by Bo Schembechler would be fitting: Those who stay will be champions. Read More
With Wisconsin on the mind, there was only one person to bring in to remind us of the hatred we have for Bucky. It was great to have my main man, Eric back on the show to break down Saturday’s showdown with #24 Wisconsin.
Eric is the Rodney Dangerfield of the site. Cause that dude’s got no respect — no respect for the Badgers. Eric and I look at Saturday night’s game from an Ohio State perspective and also break down the latest from the department of Idiocy.
Better known as the NCAA.
Eric and I discuss OSU’s defense against the run, the “QB controversy,” whether Wisconsin is a true rival, Urban Meyers’ “King of the Big Ten” comments and much much more.
And could Urban’s horses run with two QBs on the field Saturday? Eric shares his thoughts on the possibility.
We then get the Wisconsin viewpoint from Bleacher Report’s Andy Coppens. Coppens breaks it down Badger style (that’s a scary visual image) and gives us his thoughts on the three headed rushing attack, Joel Stave’s wonderment and the best defense in the B1G. Thanks to Andy and the staff at Mad Town Badgers for the great collaboration over the week. You can also find Andy’s work on the Big Ten over at Bleacher Report’s B1g Blog.
And finally, we get the view of a Wisconsin fan’s daydream during hate week. You’re not going to want to miss this!
Thanks for listening in this week and of course, you can always find us on Itunes!
