Ohio State at Maryland

Saturday, November 12, 2016
3:30 pm EST
Ohio Stadium 

 

COTGS Index*:  Null

Road game, so no official COTGS index this week.  However, several of your Kropkogate regulars--including Mr. Marbles, Mr. Winkles, and Beer Cone Inventor--will be in College Park for the game, so there's an overwhelming chance of things getting stupid anyway.

*Chances of Things Getting Stupid Index is determined using a highly complicated scientific formula that produces indexed results ranging from 0-100, computed using an array of complex variables and a multitude of over-sized computers located in the basement of Kropkogate.

COTGS Index*:  78

The Chicago Cubs won the World Series I'm just too happy and drained to write much of a preview this week.  I was going to go with some sort of Children of the Corn theme, so use your imagination and run with that.  It's a sort of "choose your own adventure" preview where I write nothing and you play this out in your mind however you see fit. 

Also, sorry, dear loyal Cleveland readers.

Northwestern at Ohio State

ogre-nerds.gif

Obligatory "Our team is playing Northwestern this week" blogger's gif

Saturday, October 29, 2016
3:30 pm EST
Ohio Stadium 

Lot's of pictures and gifs this week for those who don't like reading words! 

COTGS Index*:68

 when_worlds_collide_book.jpg

Folks, it's happening.  Everything I love in the realm of sports is converging on Saturday and I don't know how to handle this other than quickly adapting to a new lifestyle centered around recreational drug use.  Buckeye football, Cubs, and Pat Fitzgerald are the three loves of my sports spectating life.   What happens when two of these play against one another and the other has their most important game in franchise history all on the same day?      

 

worlds.gif

Yes, Jerry, worlds collide. Let us start with the football game.  For our new reader(s), I live a confusing life that mostly revolves around the fall football schedule.  I have spreadsheets mapping out detailed plans for every fall Saturday for the next four years (and only four years because the Big Ten hasn't released their schedule beyond 2019), and these plans are filled almost entirely with a Buckeye or Wildcat football game every week.  As one could imagine, this is a confusing time.  I can't root against Pat Fitzgerald and his magical pelvic thrusts and fist pumping beauty.  I can't root against Ohio State either and the program they've built with the help I've provided from tuition payments and reckless use of my discretionary income. I feel like Pat Fitzgerald feels when the Cats have the ball with less than two minutes to go in the half.  So much of the greatness of college football lies in schadenfreude, so my inability to take joy in a team's misfortunes in this game dampens my usual gameday bloodlust.

fitzconfused.jpg  ,

  I, too, am confused, Pat

diagram.gif

The Pat Fitzgerald School of Clock Management provides strategies to help you mismanage your football team's efforts when time is running out

There's also the Cubs.  The lovable loser Cubs.  My first sports love.  Playing in a World Series for the first time in my life (I don't really care who won what before I was born) on the same day as the Bucks and Cats.  Although my Cubs soul darkened following the Dusty Baker 2004 end of the regular season collapse, I'm still giddy as a gopher in an alfalfa patch about this team finally winning a World Series.  Of course, all 3 games at Wrigley take place the same weekend as the Ohio State - Northwestern game in Columbus forcing our traveling party to make difficult decisions (everyone else has abandoned the football game).   

Needless to say, with so much happening in one day, I've packed a few extra pairs of undergarments.  Will I show up to Kropkogate draped in purple velvet?  Or will I show up in my fashionable Ohio State gear?  Will I go full-blown Ronnie Woo Woo and wear a full Cubs uniform to the game and scream woos into Buckeye Guy's face the entire game?  Can I refrain from shouting "Justin Jackson The Ball Carrier!" every time Justin Jackson The Ball Carrier carries the before mentioned ball?  Will I cone a beer?  (hint: yes).  Will Pat's restraining order on me be recognized by Ohio law?

The answers to all these questions will come soon.  So come on down to the tailgate by the Olentangy on Saturday and tell'em Mr. Marbles sent'cha just like Pee Wee Herman did when he walked into the diner and told them Large Marge sent him.

I believe this is the second time I've made a Large Marge reference in a Kropkogate.com tailgate preview

2016 Kropkogate Election Endorsement

I've consulted no one else in the Kropkogate heirarchy for their opinions...this is just one of the perks of being a member of BIG MEDIA and Minister of Kropkogate Propaganda and Public Enlightenment.

President:  Gary Johnson - Libertarian.  I like Gary.  If you believe this is a throw away vote, I will be happy to lecture you about why your dumb opinion is wrong.  Clinton and Trump are horrible people supported by evil and corrupt organizations.  Jill Stein and the hippy Greens would probably shut down Kropkogate, ban football, force everyone into skinny jeans, and mandate that fall Saturdays are spent eating locally produced organic vegetables and socializing with people who've gone without showering for weeks.  Don't vote for Jill Stein.

Mr. Marbles Game Plan

We're back to tailgating on the Evanston golfcourse bright and early Saturday morning, Ryan Field for the Great Pat Fitzgerald Fistpumping Revival, then off to watering hole for Buckeyes/Cubs at night.  Odds are favorable for drinking a beer at some point during the day.

Mr. Marbles Game Plan

Mr. Marbles takes his 2016 hiatus and sits out on tailgating action this week.   The Cubs play game one of the NLCS game at the same time as the Buckeyes game.  Sports God screws with me like this because he is cruel and fickle.  Haven't I sacrificed enough Natty Lights to please you, Heracles? Or is it Hermes?   Anyway, I believe I've laid to rest enough Nattys to satisfy both of you. 

 

B1G Expert Pick'em

Each week, Kropkogate's team of expert prognosticators gamble their life savings away while attempting to predict the outcomes of all Big Ten games. Last week the experts combined for a 13-17 record.  Darrel Hazell and those up and coming meddling Boilermakers bestowed quite a degree of damage to the reputation of this panel of esteemed experts, but Ruswinkle remains on top.

Indiana at Ohio State Buckeyes

Saturday, October 7, 2016
3:30 pm EST
Ohio Stadium 

 

COTGS Index*: 60

The Index creeps upward this week because of the 3:30 pm start time and--well, hell--I'm biased, and I kick it up a few points when I plan to attend the tailgate.  I look forward to hearing the new gameday audio playlist that has been implemented for the 2016 season, replacing the one from circa 2005.  Please tell me this has happened, right?

The sacrifice for this round is Indiana, a team that went on a shopping trip with mom to the husky section at JC Penney, tried on some big boy pants, and went running out of the store to knock-off defending Big Ten champion Michigan State last week in Bloomington.  Will the Hoosiers show up in Columbus wearing their new Arizona Jean Company husky-sized big boy pleated slacks?  Or will mom return them, forcing Indiana to squeeze back into their usual old Oshkosh B Gosh slacks handed-down to them from Purdue in 2012 when Danny Hope won the Little Caesar's Pizza Pizza Bowl and foolishly disbanded his pants only to get bit by mosquitoes all over his nether regions?   Does anyone understand my JC Penney pants analogies or is this entire paragraph simply a pile of garbage that only makes sense in my head? 

So many questions--oddly enough, they seem to be mostly about pants--but come Saturday, we will receive the answers.  So, what do you say? Come on down to the tailgate by the Olentangy, enjoy a few drinks, share a few laughs, and pass out on the urine-soaked men's room floor inside the ag building while your family looks around for you outside!
