GO BUCKS!!!  :drunk:

___________________________________________________________________________________________

 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Before the Longhorn band played a somber "Eyes of Texas," Ohio State offensive lineman Kirk Barton ran to the sliver of the stadium filled with Buckeyes fans and flashed the Hook 'em Horns sign with both hands aimed down.  The message was clear: Ohio State showed the defending national champions who's No. 1.  In the first regular-season matchup of No. 1 vs. No. 2 in a decade, quarterback Troy Smith riddled Texas for 269 yards passing and two touchdowns, leading the Buckeyes to a 24-7 win Saturday night.  The victory keeps the Buckeyes (2-0) in perfect position for a run to a national title. Keep winning and they should stay right where they are.

Ended up going to the BWs in Kenwood because Mulligan's was too damn crowded.  My fiance and I have gone to that BWs before and it is usually dead, but it was packed with OSU fans this time!

Cry me a river.  Even your other Bearcat friend is rooting for OSU.  Support all your state schools!

 

That is, unless you are from Kentucky...

I was kidding more so than anything, but I am not going to stroke OSU's ego any more than what it already is.  I get tired of hearing how OSU thinks that they are sooooo great.  I just don't see why the whole state has to jump on board the OSU bandwagon.  Sorry I'm true to my colors!  I am a hometown boy I love ALL the Cincy teams (I even root on XU when they're not playing UC).  I am not a Cbus sports fan....thats all OSU is to me, Columbus University, and I WILL NOT cheer for them!

Uncle Rando, I'm mostly with you, except for this part:

 

I get tired of hearing how OSU thinks that they are sooooo great.  I just don't see why the whole state has to jump on board the OSU bandwagon.

 

OSU is currently the top-ranked team in the entire nation, in a sport that commands the abject adoration of tens of millions of fans across the country.  This year, they truly are "sooooo great" - I mean, nobody is better than them, and tons of people are trying to be.  Definitely a big deal.  Plus there isn't any in-state competition for them - makes it really easy to cheer them on, even if the Buckeyes aren't really your thing...

Let's see...what state is CINCINNATI in again?

 

It isn't about Columbus.  It isn't about Cincinnati.  It isn't about whatever city you want to say.  Ohio State is a STATE school and last I checked, Cincinnati was in Ohio.  There are many Bearcat fans at Ohio State and there are many Buckeye fans at UC.  It isn't about being an isolationist, as Ohio should support ANY state school we can (talking Wright State, OSU, UC, Bowling Green, Ohio, Kent, etc).

 

Granted, I'm not so blind to see OSU fanatics can be quite moronic and almighty.  But someone from the state of Ohio should atleast see that with a name like OHIO STATE (or Ohio University) is not about "cities" but simply about state unity.

There are many Bearcat fans at Ohio State

 

REALLY?!?!?!?

News to me :-o

Yes...you're right, Cincinnati is in Ohio, so is Cleveland....ask me how many Clevelanders are Bengal fans and vice versa?  My point is this:  I am an Ohio fan to a certain extent, for the most part I will cheer on any other team in Ohio.  I also enjoy seeing OSU win big games; however, I also get a slight enjoyment out of seeing OSU struggle....just because of the sheer obnoxious attitudes of OSU fans.

 

When they lose its one less day that I have to hear from the OSU choo choo about how damn good they are....whether they warrant the accolades or not.

You've witnessed one in this thread already.  Unless, of course, the westside has slow news ;).

A).  There is a difference between the Bengals/Browns and the Buckeyes.  They aren't called the OHIO Browns nor OHIO Bengals.  They are regional cities teams, not a state institution.

 

B).  I acknowledged the fan base can be quite obnoxious (and I went to Ohio State so I should know) but even your cynical ass needs to acknowledge that Ohio State beating Texas was a good win for not just Ohio but everybody that's not Texas :).

Well I know Randy is by no means alone in thinking that...I wear an Ohio State hoodie a lot and ppl in Cincinnati always have something smart to say about it.  I don't really get it because UC is known for basketball anyway, whereas Ohio State prides itself in football.

Look leave the westside out of this....we all know that the westside has some issues, and is often behind the times. :laugh:

So does everyone in the New England area root for the New England Patriots....or how about another college comparison...does Miami Hurrican fans LOVE their Florida Gators?!?!

 

B).  I acknowledged the fan base can be quite obnoxious (and I went to Ohio State so I should know) but even your cynical ass needs to acknowledge that Ohio State beating Texas was a good win for not just Ohio but everybody that's not Texas :).

 

It was a big win and I'm glad they won, I hope they lose this weekend to UC (not a chance, but I can hope).  I also wouldn't mind seeing OSU win the National Championship.....but then again I wouldn't mind seeing them lose a crushing defeat at the hands of Michigan....no wait Michigan SUCKS!

No disrespect to the Longhorns but Texas was waaaaaay overrated, alot more than I already thought. The teams in thier division had never really been competitive and on sept 9 that was made abundantly clear. Many are now drinking the ND kool aid but Penn State is a completely different team than last year because they lost about 12 starters. ND's decisive win over Penn State shouldnt have been a surprise, and they dont deserve the #2 spot. People will realize ND is also overrated when they play Michigan next week.

 

Anyway I had an unusually good time watching the Buckeyes.

I never got it either, but perhaps there is a justified bias against the largest institution in the state.  Much like the Los Angeles/San Francisco syndrome.

The average New Englander actually DOES root for the New England Patriots, statistically.  Boston isn't call The Hub for just show.  Also, Florida is much like a Michigan where there are two or more prominant "flagship" schools instead of just one unipolar institution (like OSU, Illinois, Wisconsin, Penn State).  Thus, the Florida example doesn't cut it, sorry.

I don't really think that TX was overrated. They stopped OSU's running attack.  This game just shows how good OSU really is.  The interesting thing will be to see how much the defense improves over the season. Last year, OSU's offense was much much better at the end of the season than they were at the beginning.

For many years Ohio State refused to play any other school in Ohio (Woody Hayes tradition?). It wasn't till some state rep got involved in the 1990s that OSU started scheduling MAC (and Cincy) teams to come to Columbus (going back to the state getting involved, someone thought it would be better for OSU to pay in-state schools to lose in C-bus than out-of-state schools).

 

And also don't forget the 40+ year feud between UC and OSU because UC defeated OSU's greatest basketball team (Lucas, Havalick, & Knight) in back-to-back years.  That's on Ohio State.
