Ohio Stadium, Columbus, OH

COTGS* Index: 70

Illini still bitterly remember The White Man's unthinkable carnage

It's the last home tailgate of the year and Ohio State's most prestigious trophy game; no excuses for not getting to the tailgate early. There will be turkeys frying and the occasional naked man running around screaming incoherently about something he lost--good clean fun for your entire family.

Ohio State enters the game playing for a trip to the Big Ten Championship game and--in case you missed the 128 times it was mentioned during the FOX broadcast last week--a remote chance to back door their way into a playoff spot. Last week, I declared our playoff hopes were dead. For all intents and purposes (or "intensive purposes," for those who prefer commonly used nonsensical phrases), this is still the case.  For now, it doesn't really matter; you should be rooting for chaos at this point regardless of the end-result. Sit back, enjoy the rest of the season, and leave the playoff lobbying to influential members of the press like myself.

The Illini enter the game playing for the chance to wrap up their miserable season as soon as possible, ushering in the timeless Illinois end-of-season tradition where fans log-on to internet message boards and demand the firing of another coach without any idea of a replacement. I will once again lobby that my tax dollars be wasted to bring back Ron Zook with a ten year contract, which contains a buyout clause that will undoubtedly be exercised after two years to fire him again, leaving the school on the hook for another multi-million dollar payout. 

 zookwater.jpg

I've already taken the initiative to prepare marketing pieces, now I'll just sit back and wait for the cease and desist order

It's an annual rite of passage to label Ohio State's second to last regular season contest as a trap game, with pregame broadcasting crews reading recycled cue cards from 1982 asking whether or not ***insert name of current Ohio State head coach*** can keep his team from looking ahead with Michigan looming on the schedule next week. Go ahead and take a drink each time you hear someone utter the phrase "looking ahead" or "trap game" this week and check yourself into a rehabilitation clinic on Sunday. Illinois couldn't trap a Rutger in a grain bin, folks, and they are riding an eight game losing streak despite having a schedule softer than a bag of marshmallows. Unless the ghost of Juice Williams suits up for the Illini, this one should be wrapped up by halftime. Fans will exit Ohio Stadium to a merry chorus of "We don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan," walk down Woody Hayes Boulevard toward their cars, and pass by an encampment of drunken rebel rousers shouting and singing obscene lyrics about some guy named Chad.

Mr. Marbles wraps up the tailgate season with a trip to Evanston. It's a disheartening feeling to think, after Saturday, it will be another 9 months before I will cone beers in public and urinate into a forested canal bank. The Minnesota Golden Gophers and PJ Fleck's cocaine-induced* personality invade Ryan Field for a very important match-up that will likely have no meaningful consequences other than me tweeting #SalvageTheBoat at Minnesota Football's twitter account again if the Gophers lose. The Wildcats have won five conference games in a row and have clinched second place in the Big Ten West, an accomplishment no one reading this website could possibly care about. It's an 11 am game, which affords the opportunity to make it out of the stadium in time to catch the Ohio State kickoff in the tailgate lot.

*I'm not saying PJ Fleck has a cocaine habit, however, Fleck has yet to publicly deny that he is snorting cocaine out of the inside of Goldy's mascot head 13 times a day.

Each week, Kropkogate's team of expert prognosticators gamble their life savings away while attempting to predict the outcomes of all Big Ten contests. This week's game of intrigue is Rutger vs. Indiana. This game could be better settled by sending each program's highest ranking assistant to the traveling secretary to meet at the halfway point Friday night, where they'd bowl 10 frames at the Alpine Club Lanes in Washington, Pennsylvania to determine the winner.  No one would notice or care that an actual game never took place. I'm excited just thinking about tuning into this on ESPN 2 and hearing Beth Mowins' exuberating voice call an endless series of gutter balls.

Michigan State

Saturday, November 11, 2017
12:00 pm EST
Ohio Stadium, Columbus, OH

 

Remember last week when I described the roller coaster of emotions that lie ahead? Saturday at Kinnick was like a roller coaster that sped down the first hill and got stuck upside down for 3 hours on the first loop. Let us never speak of that game again.

Playoff hopes are dead, but a trip to Indianapolis is still within the Buckeyes control, so get on out to Kropkogate and support the team by drinking absurd amounts of alcohol and consuming gallons of cheese-based dips on university property. Rosie, the industrial-sized heat lamp, will be there to keep you warm and burn your gloves when your hands hover too close. Also, it's Michigan State and first place in the division is on the line! While I don't really have ill feeling toward the Michigan State football team, their fans are a different story--which is why I'll just link this detailed narrative explaining why you should hate them too.

Mr. Marbles is watching the game from the couch this week and will head up to Evanston to tailgate and watch this week's much anticipated primetime game featuring Big Ten powerhouses Purdue and Northwestern. Middle to lower tier bowl positioning/eligibility is on the line and will be fought out UNDER THE LIGHTS in lower 30 degree temperatures. I don't even know why I go to these kinds of games and recognize I should seek counseling for this troubling habit.

Each week, Kropkogate's team of expert prognosticators gamble their life savings away while attempting to predict the outcomes of all Big Ten contests. Just like the Buckeyes, the expert pickers got roughed up last week and are eager to get back on the right track this Saturday. This week's game of intrigue is Purdue at Northwestern. You are rooting for a 4th straight Wildcat overtime because why the hell not?

Iowa

Saturday, November 4, 2017
3:30 pm EST
Kinnick Stadium, Iowa City, IA

 Break out the loose meats, Mr. Marbles is heading to Iowa City!

loosemeats.jpg

While loose meat sandwiches are typically associated with Iowa and western areas of Illinois, Mr. Marbles was fortunate to grow up in the isolated loose meat belt of Ohio. In his day, folks back home we're hooked on these things. Nowadays, folks back home are hooked on heroin. 

Last week, we were all in a glass case of emotion.  For over three quarters, we rotated between faint hope and Bobby Knight chair throwin' frustration as the Buckeyes stumbled and fumbled against an incomprehensibly immoral opponent and their penis-looking dirtbag coach. For three and a half quarters, it looked like the program that catered a child rapist's paradise for preying on young boys for decades would not only win, but perhaps blow out the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium.

And then, a comeback for the ages.

I'm not sure what that even means, but respected journalists have long-used that phrase to introduce stories of memorable sports comebacks and I'm a very respected journalist. In fact, I demand your respect and will direct all those who don't respect my weekly journalistic venture to a web link that will unknowingly redirect you to the religious experience that lies within me@ spin.com. I urge my loyal readers who do show me proper respect to not venture to that site at work as it is still, umm, how do I put this?...active? Anyway, it was certainly a comeback for the ages and Kropkogaters everywhere celebrated and broke out into a 42nd Street Broadway show style song and tap dance until Mr. Roper came up and told everyone to knock it off.

roper.jpg

Stanley Roper was known to respond to a fracas like the one described above with some sort of insulting homosexual comment that would have went over better with audiences in 1979 than today, unless, of course, it was made on ABC's Modern Family, in which case it would be dismissed as good-natured liberal humor rather than protest-worthy reinforcement of stereotypes. The cowardly Mr. Furley would have handled the situation better, but not without calling us all "Tippy Tap Toes" for the rest of our lives. Larry would have come down stairs, embraced the celebration, impregnated all women present, and continued on with his free-swinging bachelor lifestyle as he would have made up a fake name so none of them could track him down. Larry was cool as hell. 

There's no greater feeling than pulling off a nearly impossible comeback, knowing that no matter how bad things got you never stopped pounding Natty Lights and screaming at the college kids playing a game on your television to make it all happen. But the thrill of spectating victory is illusive, as we quickly turn the page and prepare to swill beers, fill crockpots with cheese-based dips, and brace ourselves for the roller-coaster of emotions that lurk ahead the next Saturday.

 

For real-time updates, follow me on The Twitter - @Mr_Marbles

Mr. Marbles and Mr. Winkles will represent the Kropkogate community in Iowa City this week. They are eager to impress the Hawkeye tailgaters with their synchronized coning routine they've been practicing via skype for the past six months. This will be Mr. Marbles' third trip to Kinnick, but first time to see Ohio State. Iowa is 0-2 at Kinnick and 0-? (I don't remember, but probably around 6) at Ohio Stadium when Mr. Marbles is present for their games, which is likely the reason the odds makers are favoring Ohio State by 18.
