I am not quite sure what this means.
What's funny? That someone in a OSU board that is posting happens not to be an OSU fan? I don't get the joke.I responded to someone trying to drag Michigan. Now I am being told this person is not an OSU fan. Which made me chuckle, if this mostly resembles a 100% OSU board. Which were your words.
It's not that it wasn't about OSU, it was you trash talking about OSU. It's a general thread on an OSU board....and OSU fans don't like people talking trash about OSU on an OSU board. I am not so sure what's so hard to fathom about that. People are sensitive about their teams, which is why team specific boards exist. If I wanted to subject myself to opposite fans trashing my team, I'd still post at ESPN.com message boards.This opinion you guys have also goes against pretty much all of the discussion throughout this specific thread. Go look at the topics being discussed by everyone, including yourself. This notion that this is some OSU topic on an OSU board is just so lame to me. You guys are all being way too sensitive about what is being said in a single thread, where literally an absolute thrift store of things is being discussed throughout the season. Then posturing that, post game, this is some holy thread where only Buckeye talk is happening.
People can get riled up and come at me if I am shit posting in non Michigan / OSU game threads. Or going in to things the OSU fans are discussing that clearly are about Ohio State and Ohio State only. In this thread, you personally talked about Oklahoma, Brian Kelly, Cincy, the SEC, Jalen Hurts.......I mean......it is a grab bag. Either it is a general thread or it isn't. It seems you want it to be a general thread when you have something to say and you want it to be an OSU thread when someone has something to say about Ohio State.
The equivalent would be an OSU fan lashing out against Michigan fans on a Pistons message board after getting smashed by Clemson in 2016.
3 permanent opponents, per the article.
I’d guess OSU would get Michigan, Penn St and MSU, but I wouldn’t mind playing Wisconsin every year either.
I’m actually coming from the idea that we should try to make the B1G schedule as rigorous as possible. Without divisions, you won’t have situations like 2016 or this past year where we tie for the best record in the conference but get shut out of the title game because we lost a tiebreaker. Have a tough strength of sked for CFP purposes.That's a tough trio to get assigned annually without divisions and Wisconsin wouldn't make that easier. How about we get the Illibuck back on every year and we can see Michigan State when we see 'em, just to balance it a bit.
Overall this is definitely preferable to the current system. More cool OOC matchups and hopefully seeing less of Rutgers/Maryland/Indiana.
