    And I don't think either team really deserved to play for the title but might back in due to a lousy field. The timing of the Sparty loss was bad but the execution was not a fluke, they just finally didn't get away with winning that way.

    buckeyesin07 Veni. Vidi. Vici.

    I have been in the stadium more than enough times to know east from west. Go ahead and look for the video, or assume I'm wrong; if you find the video, you'll see I'm right, and if you assume I'm wrong, you'll be mistaken. Either way. As an FYI, though, the singing of Carmen Ohio takes place several minutes after the game clock strikes zero; this occurred right as the kicker got to the south end zone (in other words, within seconds of the kick going through). If you watched the game, you'll recall he immediately sprinted for the south end zone, doing that windmill celebration the entire time.

    Buckeye Football Notebook: 'I knew when I looked at him there was just something different in his eyes'

    If a Buckeye football freshman's first day on campus was the week before Michigan Week and they had never been told of the rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan, there is little doubt that they would have noticed a distinct difference between their first week and Michigan Week.

    From 'It's Time for War' blaring in the facilities, to the focus on the face of each of the players who had been here before, to the very look in Urban Meyer's eyes, it would have been impossible to miss the meaning of the final week of the regular season, especially this year following the loss to Michigan State.

    [​IMG]

    "Just to see Coach Meyer hurting and feeling down, our offensive coordinators, they really can’t play the game for us so we had to figure out a way to give back to them and correct that and bring their spirits up as a whole," said junior receiver Michael Thomas after the win over the Wolverines.

    "Some guys didn’t have their best game last week so we felt as a team we had to bring the energy back for this team. So we wanted to go out here and prove ourselves."

    It wasn't just Thomas who was looking to set things right. The entire team had the same focus and mentality. They took their approach from their head coach, and the result was a 42-13 throttling over Ohio State's rival.

    "You could see it in his eyes," sophomore quarterback J.T. Barrett said of Meyer. "As the day started when we wokeup at seven o’clock, I knew when I looked at him there was just something different in his eyes."

    This quote inspires hope going forward. I had a couple doubts leading up to this game, based on the awful play calling against MSU. This quote should be enough to remind us that Urban is so much more Tressel than Cooper when it comes to The Game.

    Other than Barrett....:nod:

    I remember seeing the TV shot of both the "B" word guy and Warinner sitting side by side with headphones on in the press box; during the TV shot it appeared that Warinner was doing all the talking. It would be really interesting to know just how much input the "B" word guy actually had in the play calling; however, we probably will never know.

    I sort of pictured them sitting him down in a corner chair and handing him an Etch-A-Sketch to keep him busy.

    All kidding aside, hopefully (if he is on the staff in 2016) he took everything as a positive learning experience, etc.

    Doesn't surprise me........Dantonio's a mean-spirited prick. Hope that Iowa puts 100 on them.

    Yep

    Much like 2007, there is no great team but what the hell? They are giving out a trophy to somebody, get in the tournament and see what happens.

    OSU isn't any worse than any team in the current top 5. Not by a long shot.

    Reference some past posts:

    Just sayin': The guy is the defensive coordinator here from 2001 to 2003 (and helps bring in a National Championship); then gets the head coaching job at "Jiggalo U" and everybody loves him and wishes him well.

    He moves on the head coaching job at Michigan State and beats Ohio State (and admit it, in that game Ohio State may have actually done more to beat themselves with the way they played and/or were coached than Sparty did); and the guy is a "no good mean spirited prick".

    :oh:....:io:

    I'm sure you're right that watching OSU lose a couple of big games to MSU under Dantonio has soured some OSU fans' views of Dantonio. But I think your demonstration of it works better if the "Before" opinion comes from the same guy as the "After" opinion.

    My hate for Sparty now has nothing to do with Dantonio but it has everything to do with losing. I hate losing and particularly I hate losing to the same people multiple times.

    That's why Wisconsin started to grow a hatred with me through the 2000's and it's why our fan base now cannot stand scum even more due to the 1990s

    Just to be clear, I never used the words "no good" in my original post.

    I keep thinking back to the way he treated Gavin Cupp after Friday Night Lights. He's a poor loser and an arrogant winner. Compare his comments after a win, or loss, to Urban's. Sorry if I offended.

    In fact, "arrogant" is a far better description than "mean spirited".

    Not trying to [​IMG]here. Justy wanted to point out how an opinion of a guy can change almost 180° when he goes from one team to another (i.e. from a team you like to one you don't or vice versa).

    People's opinion of a player and/or coach is definitely effected by what team is is on: I've always been a New York Giant fan. In the early 60s the Giants had a defensive back named Erich Barnes. Back then all the NFL games weren't televised; you usually just had to listen to the local team (i.e. the Browns) on the radio. When the Giants played the Browns, the Brown's announcers referred to him as the "dirtiest player" in the NFL. In 1964 the Giants traded him to the Browns and low and behold the same announcers were now referring to him as the "most aggressive player" in the NFL.:lol:
