Hate Week Revisited

The Game

Well it's been a few years since I've (or anyone) has posted on the blog but if anything can bring it back is Hate Week. Yes, HATE Week, the time of year where you turn back the clock to when you were a youth and were able to scream out pure unadulterated hate. There's no stupid brown jug to award the winner of the game. There's just the joy of  stomping your enemies dreams into tiny pieces. Before going into a series of curse words to explain why the other team sucks I though a brief recap of what's been going on while we've been away. So umm what has The Ohio State University and that North been up to?

While we've been away Ohio State has changed for a button down Sweatervest that slowly suffocated you with special teams and defense to a spread and shred up tempo Urban Meyer powerhouse.  OSU is a young team and prone to being tricked by shiny objects and laser pointers however when focused it is one of the top offenses in the country.

This might well be rock bottom for the Maize and Blue. They need a win just to make a bowl game. The era of Brady Hoke hasn't been much better than the era of RichRod. The offense is putrid, the defense occasionally gives up, I think school pays fans to show up, and Hoke will be summarily executed by an acting AD after the game (unclear if it will be via guillotine which I believe is what Hoke's contract stipulates).

Deep Thoughts

Yes, yes, some illiterate tv personalities might say throw out the records or the teams are equally matched . Blah Blah Blah. Sell that to the masses ESPN I'm not buying it.

Hypothetical Illiterate TV Personality
In the end one team is going to the Big 10 championship for consecutive years, the other on the verge of consecutive losing conference records. One is stocked full of 4 and 5 star recruits, the other was found stopping random strangers and asking if they can play offensive line. One is going to a New Year's day bowl and the other trying to find a new coach. It's Rivalry week but the favorite is clear. Mighty Mike in his first pick in a number of years is going with the Buckeyes 45-21.
