The season did not live up to expectations, but very few ever do.  However, it's hard to be upset with a 11-1 record including a blowout victory in Ann Arbor to welcome Harbaugh back to the Big Ten. 
 

ESPN Pick'em 

Final Standings:

  1. Kropko - 511 pts
  2. Mr. Marbles - 505 pts
  3. Boomperosu - 504 pts

 

Kropko won week 13 with a perfect score to seal the 2015 season victory.  What did he win?

Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Wolverines

Saturday, November 28, 2015
12:00 pm EST
Michigan Stadium

michigan2015.jpg 

The Big Ten hasn't seen a defensive-minded coach quite like Harbaugh since Jerry Sandusky was a coordinator at Penn State and we're going let you interpret that on your own.

 

COTGS Index*:  Null

 This is a road game, so no official tailgate index, but I'm confident ya'll will get stupid drunk on your own cause it's Michigan, damn it!

 

*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.

If lady luck allows the Buckeyes back into the B1G Championship game, we'll have one last gameday preview for you this year.  Otherwise, with no remaining home games, last week wrapped up Mr. Marbles' 2015 hard hitting commentary and investigative journalism.  We'll continue to update the Pick'em and Expert B1G Picks regardless.  I hope you all enjoyed your time here at the Kropkogate World Wide Web Enterprise, and we look forward to getting together right here in this very spot next autumn.

Michigan State Spartans at Ohio State Buckeyes

Saturday, November 21, 2015
3:30 pm EST
Ohio Stadium, Columbus, Ohio

  msu2015.jpg

 

COTGS Index*:  79

It's the final home game of the season with the Big Ten Championship and College Football Playoff still on the line.  This one has all the ingredients necessary to serve up a big plate of stupid. The super-computer would have churned out higher index numbers, but it negatively weighs data indicating tailgates so far this season have been remarkably docile.  The super-computer considers all variables, and it demands a promise of a baked bean chugging before it exceeds the 80% threshold this week.  

 

*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.

I'll be live tweeting and periscoping from Kropkogate Saturday morning.  I have four followers on periscope, so this should be the pinnacle social media event of our generation. 

 

Michigan State Spartans

hansen.jpg 

Why don't you have a seat...

The city-state of Sparta was one of most vital cities in ancient Greece.  The city of East Lansing, on the other hand, isn't even the most important city of present day Ingham County.  But, "Hey, fuck it, let's spooge all over ourselves with delusions of grandeur and call ourselves Spartans," proclaimed the students of the town's college some years ago. 

And really, why wouldn't an institution of higher learning want to associate themselves with a male dominated aristocracy that killed infants deemed unworthy for future battle, enslaved members of lower societal status, and insisted all youth spend their entire childhood in barracks--where they trained for warfare and were forced into nonconsensual homo-erotic relationships with older, more experienced adults of the community? Yeah, that sounds god damn wonderful, let's go ahead and call ourselves Spartans.  

elansing.jpg

The similarities between ancient Sparta (left) and East Lansing (right) are uncanny

Ohio State fans have long held the reputation as the most obnoxious in the Big Ten, if not the entire nation.  Camera hogging super-fans such as Buck-I-Man and Buckeyeguy have certainly done their part.  The plethora of fans travelling to road games, out-numbering the home team and O-H-I-O-ing are another factor.  Perhaps the tailgate on Woody Hayes Drive that blasts Dead Schembechlers music while children pass by plays a role in this reputation as well.  But most of all, a long tradition of winning is the variable that makes Ohio State fans the most hated among conference foes.  If Ohio State were traditional Big Ten football bottom-feeders with the same fan base, we'd be celebrated in the same manner the world embraces the lovable loser fans of the Buffalo Bills featured on Deadspin each week. Editor's note:  we should plan a football Sunday trip to Buffalo.

For this reason, I believe it's unfair to crown Ohio State as National Jackass Fans Champions each year.  The system is flawed.  Fans of many other schools would be much more horrible if their teams won as often as the Buckeyes, but until they slap together a few winning seasons and get some trophies in their shiny and new multi-billion dollar football training facilities, they remain hidden from the view of the general public.  Case in point:  Michigan State.

You would have been unlikely to know the douchebaggery of Spartan fans unless you had attended a basketball game and found yourself in the middle of GO GREEN GO WHITE jackasses (I have).  Football contests of yesteryear presented no notable level of obnoxiousness from the Spartan faithful.  But now, with Dantonio keeping Michigan State consistently in the Big Ten title hunt and relevant in the College Football Playoff conversation, the world is beginning to get a glimpse of these people.  In an attempt to compensate for the fact that they were unable to get into Michigan, Sparty fans become completely intolerable when their team gets a taste of success.  From super cock-block alum Chris Hansen to the rest of their network of undatable alumni*, there is no fan consistently worse than a Spartan fan when his or her team is winning.  Okay, Penn State and the Paterno truthers are worse no matter the success of their team on (or off) the field--but, ya'll already know that.   

*We're not going to go on record and say this is because ALL THE CHLAMYDIA (but, really, it's because ALL THE CHLAMYDIA)   

 

An Algorithm of Assholishness

I took the time to develop an algorithm that takes the terribleness of each fan and adjusts their ranking based on the winning percentage of the football team of which they support.  In other words, I leveled the playing field by adjusting the success of each team to perennial national champion caliber status in order to see the effect on the assholishness of their fans.  The results, in my opinion, are very revealing.

 

Top 5 Worst College Football Fan Bases, Adjusted for Team Success

  • 5.   Ohio State - I wish I could twist the numbers, but our jackass super-fans will always keep us in these sorts of rankings.  I blame MAINSTREAM MEDIA for seeking out these jackasses every game and tainting the public's perspective of our fine university. 
superfansosu.jpg
MOTHER OF GOD.
  • 4.   Southern Methodist - The only reason Craig James allegedly stopped killing at five was because the Texas law enforcement community stops looking the other way when the sixth hooker ends up dead--unless, of course, them boys are winning some football National Championships.  In that event, Texan law defers to its longstanding "boys will be hooker slaughtering boys" precedent that pardons these sort of misfortunes.

allegedly.jpg

A google image search for "Craig James Killed 5 Hookers" churns up glorious results

  • 3.  Brigham Young - Imagine a fan base of sober, uncaffeinated Jesus freaks celebrating a victory over your favorite team--AND THEN--those same people show up at your door the next day to preach about the paths to salvation AND to National Championships.  ***shudders with horror*** 

byu.jpg

"Holier than thou" Notre Dame fans may be intolerable, but these alcohol-free super religious assholes just sit around, talk about Jesus, and eat frozen yogurt at tailgates

  • 2.  Michigan State - See, I was right and now I have science to confirm it.  Maybe Michael Moore can do a documentary on why so many MSU fans are such intolerable douchebags

mmoore.jpg

Michael Moore pledges his allegiance to being an intolerable fat and sweaty Michigan State fan

  • 1.  Penn State -  Go ahead, Nittany Lion fans, drink your commemorative Joe Paterno Beer,  throw your commemorative bottles at opposing teams' fans, and deny, deny, deny these findings. 

      

 

You are... Penn State

 

Questions Remain as Kropkogate Closes for the Season


As we wrap up the last home game of the year, we're hoping to get answers during the tailgate to a number of pressing questions that have lingered in everyone's mind all season long, including:

  • Will anyone chug baked beans this year?
  • Will we have a new Kropkodome next year?
  • Does Buckeyeman ever have sexual relations with anyone?
  • Does he ever do it in full Buckeyeman costume?
  • Will drinking an entire bottle of Wild Turkey rid the image of Buckeyeman having sexual relations out of my mind?
  • Who will be the last couple to have relations in the ag building this season?
  • Or will it be an individual that has relations with his or her self?
  • Buckeyeman?
  • Does anyone have more Wild Turkey?
  • Do the floors of the ag building stick with all that semen everywhere?
  • What about the door handles?
  • Why is Stoleygate so lame?
  • Which one of these cups is mine?
  • Does Pat Fitzgerald ever listen to The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald while drinking an Edmond Fitzgerald?
  • Why won't Pat Fitzgerald unblock me on Twitter?
  • Does anyone find it strange for a grown man to keep a Pat Fitzgerald centric homo-erotic online shtick going for over 8 years?
  • Whatever happened to the Versus Network?
  • Has anyone at ESPN ever told Corso to stop saying "Warshington"?
  • What's the deal with that stuff that exited the black hole?
  • Is there a bizarro universe on the other side of the blackhole where Purdue regularly beats MAC opponents?
  • Do cheerleaders expect fans to suddenly start joining in on their cheers?
  • Would a member of the Jehova Witnesses be shunned by the congregation if it was revealed he or she regularly attended Kropkogate?
  • How many National Titles did Bo Schembechler win?
  • Was it zero?  Or was it zero?
  • Where's my penis?
  • Whatever happened with all the Ebola?
  • Did I already die from Ebola
  • Is any of this real?
  • Who would steal 30 bagged lunches?
  • Who keeps crop-dusting?
  • Is that smell floating over from Stoleygate?
  • If I keep asking "who keeps crop-dusting," and scowling over at Stoleygate will I successfully shift blame away from myself?
  • Uh oh, did that one exit as gas or a poop?
  • Will I get audited for deducting my donations to Kropkogate on my federal income tax filing?
  • Is there a reason that man is walking around holding a decade old Hineygate cup and wearing a tie that looks even older?
  • Is it legal to place a boat on the Olentangy and tailgate there?
  • Where did my cup go again?
  • What's my favorite John L. Smith memory?

Wait, I already have answer for that last one...

Mr. Marbles Game Plan

Mr. Marbles heads back to Columbus for Kropkogate this weekend.  Praise Bacchus! 

His agenda for the day includes eating a cheeseburger, drinking a beer, and having relations with himself in the ag building watching football.  Last Saturday, Mr. Marbles missed his final #FitzInsideMe tailgate of the year in Evanston due to food poisoning and 40 straight hours of burning poo lava flowing out of his nether regions.  He is sad to report that until September 3, 2016, the next time he drives his car upon a public golf course in the early hours of the morning and starts pounding beers and drowning himself in manhattans, he'll likely be arrested.

If Ohio State takes the East Division, he'll be seeing all of you in Indianapolis on December 5.

Illinois Fighting Illini vs Ohio State Buckeyes

Saturday, November 14, 2015
12 pm EST

It's a trophy game, Kropkogaters.  Time to get serious.  

First, before we get into this preview, we'd like to wish Tim Beckman's mother a Happy Birthday!


Obligatory Ron Zook Water Ski Photo and Relevant Commentary

zookzookzook.jpg

"So I hear you have a coaching vacancy"

Although the legend hasn't graced the Illini sidelines since 2011, the ole Zooker continues to be the face of the Fighting Illini football program as far as we're concerned here at the Kropkogate World Wide Web Headquarters.   This is partly a result of the seven magical years of bewilderment during his tenure as Illinois head coach, but more so because we have the belief (and are leading the campaign to make it happen) that Ron Zook will return for an encore next season, resume Illini head coaching duties and model for erotic photo shoots.  

Despite our bias toward Ron Zook's terrible play calling, we would lose our media credentials if we failed to give credit where it is due.  Tim Beckman lived up to his hype during his head coaching stint in Champaign-Urbana, so we'd like to send our sincere appreciation and say thank you.  He filled the big pair of clown shoes Zook left upon the Memorial Stadium doormat better than we could have realistically expected.  The Illini faithful had to feel good about hiring Timmy after every other Division 1 head coach, coordinator, assistant coach, and ball boy turned down the job.  Having brought his Toledo Rockets program to college football's most desirable heights--Little Cesear's Pizza Pizza Bowl Runner-ups--the previous year, Beckman had momentum on his side from day one to continue the Illinois football tradition.

Top 5 Memories of Tim Beckman at Illinois

  1. Getting bowled over by ref and penalized for sideline interference   
  2. Happy birthday, mom
  3. The shameless poaching of Penn State players
  4. "You take out 21 points on three plays and we’re in this football game "
  5. The time he forgot his spittoon

When a laughable attempt to create a rivalry with Northwestern, belief that local media should serve as his personal propaganda machine, and a revolt of current and past players due to repeated accusations of abuse don't make the top five, you've put together an impressive portfolio during a short three year period.

Bill Cubit, Beckman's former offensive coordinator, has stepped in as interim head coach after Beckman was canned shortly before the season started and has been quite disappointing in his role.  Cubit has rallied his team to mediocrity while providing absolutely no acts of buffoonery that this website so dearly counts on for future articles.  As an Illinois resident and tax payer, I demand our state financed flagship university employ and spend millions on the salary of someone that will bring the Illini back to their hilarity. 

Our State.  Our Team. 
Ron Zook in 2016.

Let's make this happen, folks.

Bye weeks are always the worst.  Aside from the lack of Ohio State football to watch, we're all left praying to Bacchus for mercy in hopes that he will deliver a team of college kids from the temptations presented by a little bit of free time suddenly cast upon them.  Without much surprise, the Buckeyes didn't come out unscathed.  Newly anointed quarterback JT Barrett got nabbed, checking in slightly above the legal alcohol limit for driving.  Bacchus giveth and Bacchus taketh, for Bacchus is God of wine and drunken orgy.

Buckeye faithful will show up Saturday at Ohio Stadium disappointed by the actions of this young man.  Fans will gather, drink all day, question why Barrett didn't call use a taxi or Uber, then get in their cars after the game and drive home with a gallon of beer in their bellies, flustered by the poor decisions of their heralded quarterback.

As a result of Jerry Kill's sudden retirement, the obese man that would always take the reigns when Jer-Bear had seizures has taken over official head coaching duties.  He's like a competent, less arrogant and likeable Charlie Weis.  For the record, I've been an athletic supporter of Coach Whatshisface since long before he took over.

After nine weeks:

  1. Kropko

  3. Mr Marbles

Richard Chaney Jr won last week's contest. He was once Vice President of the United States?

Mr. Marbles Game Plan

Mr. Marbles and esteemed Kropkogate B1G Picker T-Bone head up to Evanston early in the morning for tailgating and footballery.  They'll be back in the Litter Box for a little cat-on-cat action as the Wildcats take on the Nittany Lions.  It's Lord and savior Pat Fitzgerald taking on Satan's hard-to-reach dingle berry James Franklin.   James Franklin can eat a bag of cat poop.  Although Pat Fitzgerald is a lifetime 3-0 vs Franklin, a loss on Saturday would be a cat-astrophy.  Hopefully, T-Bone's repeated shoutings of "rip his head off" serves a cat-alyst of good fortune. Meow.

This special feline match-up presents an excellent opportunity to share the story of the time I torched a girl's cat tree that was handcrafted and gifted to her by a mentally disabled friend. Oh geez, we're out of time.  We'll save that story for the next time a cat on cat storyline develops.
