    OK. I can't live like this anymore. I admit it. I met a guy named Portland Paul in Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. We met at the airport coffee bar where I paid $23, a fortune in local currency, for the signals. For another $23, Portland Paul delivered their entire game plan. He said he wasn't motivated by money. He just hated their marching band and preferred beavers to ducks.

    Anyway, I delivered all of this to Jim Tressel in his office in Columbus at midnight on 31 December. You can imagine the trouble he went to in order to get from Pasadena to Columbus to collect my information, but I didn't have gas money to make it to Pasadena.

    I feel just terrible about what I did. But, at least now, I can begin to clear my conscience.

    You lie. We all know that Kinshasa is in Wisconsin...

    shetuck What do you need water for, Sunshine?

    You're thinking of Kigali. That's in Wisconsin.

    Kinshasa is indeed in the DRC. They've moved it (along with the airport and the coffee bar) from Zaire. Hence the locals' hatred for Ducks and the Oregon marching band.

    :biggrin:

    Why am I not surprised at all that Oregon's coaching staff is looking for excuses?

    So, will OSU ever have a big time BCS win against a favored opponent not cause controversy? I just love how 'Canes fans just felt the need to chime in about their pissed off attitude still.
    Just makes me want to run those fuckers out of the 'Shoe that much more.

    Oh yeah, Fuck the Ducks.

    I think it all goes back to the fact that people despise success if it's not their own...

    ...as long as the Buckeyes are going out there every year and making things miserable for the teams that "can't", people are never going to admit it when we prove we're a team that "can"...and has...and continues to do so...it's as simple as folks being sore losers...

    Like they wouldn't steal our signals if they figured them out. :roll2:

    And if they did, I wouldn't whine about it like a little bitch. It's part of every sport that has signals. It happened in high school baseball, for fuck's sake. Why would they expect it to not happen in college football?

    Get better at disguising signals. Or better yet, get better at football.

    Just stumbled across the replay on ESPNU while eating dinner tonight. Looks like the Ducks are going down, again. :biggrin:

    Thanks for the bump. I remembered the stolen signals "non-story" and forgot to post on it at the time.

    My response is, "So what if they did?" Come up with better signals.

    My response is,

    "Is it really so hard to believe that the best defense you faced all year held you to your lowest offensive oiutput since your team gelled? Is it really so hard to believe that the Pac-10's reputation for not being able to play defense turns out to be a well-deserved reputation? The most unbiased analysis I'm capable of, DSA, showed that you were unlikely to score 3 TDs against the Buckeyes. And you didn't. Cry me a river. Stupid Ducks."


    ...or something to that effect

    No. Every team Ohio State has ever beaten in the Jim Tressel-era was either a cupcake, a weak-ass Big Ten team (they're all weak-ass since the conference sucks), or it was an aberration since the Buckeyes cheat.

    • The 2003 win over the 'Canes only happened because Terry Porter was paid off. If Porter doesn't throw that PI flag and Tressel doesn't play MoC (who everybody knows was ineligible), then the 'Canes would've won by three TDs.
    • The 2004 win over Kansas State only happened because the Cats were distracted by the sexual assault charges against Ell Roberson. As their furious 2nd half comeback showed, if they'd have been on-rhythm the whole game without any distractions, they would've won by three TDs.
    • The 2004 win over Oklahoma State in the Alamo Bowl only happened because the Cowboys had shit for a gameplan since Leslie was in negotations to bail for LSU. If Leslie had bothered to put together a gameplan that involved running the ball with their best player, they probably would've won by three TDs.
    • The 2005 win over Michigan only happened because the refs missed Gonzo running out of bounds and coming back into the field of play to make The Catch.
    • The 2006 win over Notre Dame only happened because of the replay officials changing the catch-fumble-TD return call on Gonzo in the 3rd quarter to a no-catch. If that call doesn't happen, as Charlie has attested ("That was THE play"), Notre Dame probably would've cruised to a three TD win.
    • The 2006 win over Texas only happened because Texas had to start a Fr. QB and they made too many mistakes. They also stopped running the ball in the 2nd half. If it hadn't been for all that, they probably would've won by three TDs. After all, it's really hot in Texas, their scoreboard is HUGE, and every player on the roster is a future All-American.
    • The 2006 win over Michigan only happened because we deliberately made the turf shitty for Morgan Trent and the Wolverines' other track stars. If that game had been played on artificial turf U-M certainly wins by three TDs.

    Please try to keep up.
