I don’t know how they got here, but there are a lot of Buckeyes here at Us Versus Them. I was skeptical at first, but the cats who roll with us are definitely Us so we let em slide. One problem though, they are completely delusional about the Ohio State vs. USC game this weekend.
Sure, they dominate the Big Tenleven right now. Sure, they’ve been to the national championship game for the last two years and won the big game in 2003. The problem? They also got drug the fuck up out of those games for the last few years. Ohio State is really the best argument out there for a playoff system in College Football. Sure, they win the Big 10 every year lately, but they also stop playing football long about Halloween and wait for every other team to beat itself up for a month before the season is over and somehow rise to the top without playing a single game.
In this corner we have the USC Trojans.
Every year is not their year. They’ve been struggling since the end of the Leinart, Reggie Bush era they’ve gotten shocked more than they should have but they looked great in that first game. Every once in a while, they end up looking like a pro team out there more than a college team. This seems like one of those times.
These teams lock it up on Saturday night out in California in the first huge football game of the year. Oh, did I mention that Ohio State is going at it without their star player Beanie Wells and they almost lost one to Ohio last week. I mean literally had to Man Up like they were UvT fans playing on Monday instead of Saturday afternoon.
So here it is. Ohio State vs. USC is must see tv this weekend. I think Ohio State needs a miracle to pull it off.
Is there anything I missed?
Right. Go Trojans.
Will and Triple B are usually up in this joint errrrrryday and twice on Mondays, meanwhile we haven’t heard hide nor hair from these dudes. OSU fan…Man Up!
