Ohio State vs Indiana

Saturday, November 22, 2014
12 pm EST kickoff
Ohio Stadium


 

COTGS Index*:  48

Indiana-Ohio State.  Every year I try to make everyone appreciate this rivalry, but no one ever cares.  Your weather is going to suck, Columbus, so the super-computer shat out rather pessimistic results.

Last Week's Recap

  Pizza Hall and I traveled to South Bend.

THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SIGHT THESE EYES HAVE EVER SEEN.

Unicorn Man is a man I want to be friends with.  Unicorn Man mounts beers to his forehead.  Unicorn Man pours beer mounted to forehead very carefully into cups.  Unicorn Man goes behind the bar and gets his own beer.  Unicorn Man gets scolded by bartenders for going behind the bar, but you know what?  Unicorn Man doesn't give a f*** and keeps doing it anyway.  I love you, Unicorn Man.  

 

Here's a Little Lesson For You Youngsters Out There Presented  in the Form of a Long Run On Sentence

When leaving a game before the clock expires because the team you are rooting against just got a first down because the refs just made a horseshit pass interference call and there's only 1:40 left on the clock and the team you are rooting for only has only one time out which means they could down the ball on downs 1, 2, and 3 then run backwards a few yards on 4th and run out the clock, always make sure you randomly obtain an extra set of tickets earlier in the day from someone who just wanted to give you better seats and don't bother trying to sell the extra tickets that you already had because you are lazy, so that later in the night when you exit the stadium early to get to that warm bus and you comment to Pizza Hall that you never got the chance to scream the line from Rudy "WHO'S THE WILD MAN NOW?" and the crowd inside the stadium lets out a collective groan and you realize Coach Kelly is a terrible decision maker and Pat Fitzgerald--who you love with all your heart and some other unmentionable body parts--has his team in position to tie the game and send it into overtime you are able to run back to the stadium and get hassled by a ticket taker that looks just like this: 

notredameguy.jpg

who doesn't want  to let you in despite the fact that you have perfectly good tickets that have not been used to get in yet but he doesn't have a scanner, which really is his problem not yours, but he just wants to be a dick and not let you in with your perfectly good tickets and he thinks he'll play the role of Detective Shitforbrains and asks where you got your tickets assuming you just scalped them which would give him a real reason to use his asshole powers to deny you entrance but you spend 5 minutes telling him how why you legally have 2 extra tickets in your pocket and eventually give up and try another entrance and get in and see the overtime and Pat Fitzgerald fistpumps his way to victory and you go out of your way on the way out of the stadium to find the asshole ticket guy who wouldn't let you in and you shout with great enthusiasm "WHO'S THE WILD MAN NOW, Dick."

And after what I've gone through, if I haven't done that by now, it ain't gonna never happen. Now go on back.

Mr. Marbles' Gameday:  Wake Up The Echoes

Cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame,
Wake up the echoes diverting blame,
Players raping, no problem why?
University officials cover up and lie
Who cares evidence be great or small
Catholic tradition, ignore it all,
While her loyal sons are cheating
Onward to victory.

Ohio State travels to Minnesota Saturday in a crucial cross-division showdown.  No one saw this coming at the beginning of the season, but the outcome of this game will have tremendous implications for both teams.  With so much on the line, the obvious thing to do is to hit the road and meet Pizza Hall in South Bend to watch a different game, one whose outcome will have no real consequences.  You hear that Jeff?  Your brother's going to Notre Dame!  

Sure, it's a meaningless game, aside from the remote chance that an entire nation might come together to laugh at Notre Dame if Northwestern visits the land of Oz, finds an offense, and somehow manages to upset the Irish.  However, it's hard to pass up the opportunity to spend an entire day only speaking in Rudy quotes.

You either love Notre Dame or hate them.  There are a multitude of reasons folks dislike Notre Dame:  smug alumni, nationwide bandwagon following, the Lizzy Seeberg incident & tendency of university officials to sweep misconduct under the rug, preferential treatment for bowl games, irrational media fawning, Lou Holtz's weekly un-interpretable pro-Notre Dame mutterings, and, or course, the irreconcilability of a faith-based institution of higher learning.

Perhaps that last one ranks higher on Mr. Marbles disdain list than that of the general public.  I digress, but my point is I root against schools that hold themselves out to be holier than thou, especially an institution like Notre Dame with a long history of hypocrisy.

Week 11 winner was Dr. James Andrews, who rode the bench for two years. Thought he wasn't winning the Pick'em because of his color, got filled up with a lot of attitude so he quit.  Still not a week goes by he doesn't regret it.

Mr. Marbles' Gameday

I do not give a damn for the whole state of Michigan--particularly the upper peninsula.   Why would anyone make the trip up there anyway?

It's a double dose of "Don't Give a Damn" on Saturday for Mr. Marbles.  Starting the day with tailgating and yelling obscenities at the game in Evanston.  The fighting Fitzgeraldcats will take on the evil Michigan Hokerines at Pat Fitzgerald Field.  Afterward, it's off to a bar to watch OSU vs Michigan State. 

Fun Fact

Despite a rough start to the year, by the end of the season Pat Fitzgerald could still possibly exceed Bo Schembechler in the rankings for career National Championships as head-coach.

 

2014 NFL Minute

    

It's Bengals vs. Browns Thursday night, and Sam Wyche would like to remind you, dear reader: "YOU DON'T LIVE IN CLEVELAND!" 

As a result, you are not some dumb asshole that one would expect to see throwing objects onto the playing field. If you happen to be one of our many readers from Cleveland, disregard Sam's message and go back to being a jerk.  

I think I have about 30 seconds of the NFL minute left, so I'll throw out a few other nuggets:

  • Joe Buck makes everything terrible. 
  • Thursday nights are for MACtion and Wild Wild Mountain West games.  GET OFF MY BAR'S TELEVISION, NFL!
  • NFL pre-game shows are the worst.  I'd rather burn my penis with red hot cigar butts than listen to Jimmy Johnson and the rest of the suits.
  • No one outside of your league cares about your fantasy team's performance, but thanks for filling me in, Facebook friends.
  • I turn the tv off if Joe Buck is calling a game.
  • I don't mind Chris Collinsworth. 
  • They're not doing the Bud Bowl thing during the Super Bowl anymore.  HEADS SHOULD ROLL for this travesty.
  • Joe Buck is a tool. 
  • Go Bengals.  But, if you don't go--and you usually don't--I'll get over it cause I haven't really cared since the days Boomer was taking the snaps.

Well, that's our 2014 NFL minute.  Hope you enjoyed it.  Now,  I'm going to go back to paying minimal attention to the NFL and occasionally get talked into going to the Kincades to watch the Bengals because they have an all you can eat Skyline bar during the game.  Mmmmmm, Skyline.  We'll see you next year.

After 10 weeks, the top 3 remain the same:

  1. Mr. Winkles - 390 pts
  2. thedude339 -387 pts
  3. Mairyz01 - 384 pts

Week 10 winner was TomRaper70.  TomRaper70 alma mater's mascot is Tommy the Titan, which looks a lot like Sparty the Spartan.  Forgive me if an unfortunate case of misidentification occurs that results in your Tommy the Titan beer glass being chucked off the balcony during a fit of rage Saturday night.

Gameday Weather

Don't know about the future, that's anybody's guess, ain't no good reason for getting all depressed.  Buy up your pad and pencil, I'll give you a piece of my mind:  In my opinionation, the sun is gonna surely shine.
 
Stop all your fussin.  Slap on a smile.   Come out and walk in the sun for awhile!
   
Don't fight the feeling, you know you want to have a good time.  And in my opinionation, the sun is gonna surely--oh wait, this is a night game.  Forget all that.   In my opinionation, it's going to be dark.  And cold.   Gonna freeze that f*ing smile right off your face.
 

COTGS Index*:  87

I love the Halloween weekend tailgate.  98% of Kropkogaters won't wear a costume.  2% will.  1% will be a girl completely unaware that 98% won't be in costume.  She will be dressed as slutty whatever, feel really awkward, and try to drink that awkwardness away.  This is when it really gets fun.  Now, this person will no longer just be the only lady at the tailgate dressed in a slutty costume--she will now be the really drunk girl who also happens to be the only one at the tailgate dressed in a slutty costume. You will enjoy watching all this unfold, so the super-computer is feeling pretty optimistic with an 87 rating for Saturday.  The super computer assumes that Captain Schmanderson will be in his captain's costume.   If the super-computer misinterpreted the data for this variable, the index could decline significantly.

Kropkorave

   

This week, the recently purchased Micro Galaxian "Laser" makes its Kropkogate debut as the tailgate continues to evolve into the late-1980s Chicago warehouse rave we always envisioned from the day we first drove a stake into the ag campus tailgating grounds.  According to the box, it its green and red "lasers" produces more than 200 beams, which means it has more beams than Michigan has rushing yards so far this season.  Rave on, Kropkogate...unless you suffer from photosensitive epilepsy.

Examining the Enemy:  Tim Beck Man

BringYourChampionsTheyreOurMeat.com sheds light on one of the many reasons Tim Beck Man is a turd:


When Tim Beckman took the job at Illinois, he made a point to stoke the flames of college football's least intense rivalry.  "You'll never see me wearing purple," Beckman said, throttling a plush Willie the Wildcat doll.  He claimed that he would only refer to Northwestern as "that school up north," baffling his players who gathered and brainstormed dozens of Big Ten, MAC, FCS, and Canadian schools before remembering that Northwestern existed.  With the exception of the time that Northwestern lost more than thirty consecutive games and cemented its place as the worst major-conference program in the history of college football and then the fans tore down the goalposts in mock celebration, Tim Beckman's War on Northwestern is the funniest thing that has ever happened to Northwestern football.

I have no idea how to react to Beckman.  Apparently no one told him how the Big Ten works.  Teams generally deign to play Northwestern and assume an automatic win.  Most fans  condescendingly cheer for the Wildcats in good years like you would for a toddler that has managed to successfully remain quiet for upwards of 15 minutes.  Northwestern has been more good than bad for the past dozen years, but no team other than the conference's most wretched programs expects to lose to them.  Every October road game is Homecoming, as Northwestern is inevitably trotted out like a Carl Denham ape show for win-starved alumni. 

Also, he loses every game, chews tobacco on the sidelines, and will likely be fired by the end of December.

 

Our (mispronounced) State, Our (mispronounced) Team

"El Inn Noise."   I live in Illinois and hear this mysterious phrase uttered everyday.  I encounter many, many people who have lived here their entire lives who do not know how to pronounce "Illinois" correctly.  These people have voting rights.  Good luck, America!

Mr. Marbles' Gameday

Every fall, Mr. Marbles treats Mrs. Marbles to a wine drinking & puking binge tasting tour across the pond in the state that shall remain nameless.  This Saturday we leave the tailgating and over-drinking behind and head to Harbor Country where we will do basically the same thing we do at tailgates only in a different environment and with a different type of alcohol.  After spending the day being shuttled from one winery to the next, Mrs. Marbles shall assist me in coning a glass of wine as we watch the game at a bar.

Saturday, October 25, 2014
8pm EST kickoff
Beaver Stadium

COTGS Index*:  Null

Road game, no index.  But, if you're going, enjoy the Penn State experience.  Set against the surreal backdrop of Mt. Nittany, you won't find a more beautiful place than Happy Valley to get beer bottles and eggs thrown at your head.  Stroll down College Avenue and watch your friends get assaulted, spit on, and have their clothes torn right off them by Penn State students--all done with honor, of course--cause that's the Penn State way.

Examining the Enemy:  James Franklin

I do not like Penn State head coach James Franklin.  He's so vile I rooted for Michigan to beat Franklin and his Nittany Lions.  Why so much hate?  Well there's that smug, arrogant look always plastered on his ugly face.  Also, there's that whole ongoing case against him participating in a rape cover-up from his time at Vanderbilt.  His hiring policies  would set women's progress back 200 years if implemented by your Human Resources Department.   He stood up Urban Meyer and Ohio State with a letter.  But, worst of all, the son of a bitch did the same thing to Pat Fitzerald.  No one, and I mean NO ONE, courts Pat Fitzgerald and leaves him for some cheap FCS hooker. 

James Franklin is my personal Phil Daoust. Yes, I hope something James Franklin loves catches on fire.  

F*** this guy.  F*** his team.  F*** the school administrators who brought such a slimy piece of shit in while still lurking in the shadow of Jerry Sandusky.  F*** the fans that show up and support this pig.  

 Go Bucks.

COTGS Index*:  64

Ohio State plays Rutgers this weekend.  That should be reason enough to cone a few beers, take off your pants, dive into bushes, and have relations with someone else or maybe your self in the ag building.

Examining the Enemy:  Rutgers

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, visits Ohio Stadium for what I'm assuming to be the first time ever.  Hell, let's just go ahead and say that's a fact.  I suppose I could write heckles with references to Jersey Shore and Real Housewives of New Jersey, however, I've never actually watched those shows, so I don't know what to say.  I understand it's pretty much a bunch of douche bags from Jersey being douchebags.  I believe Jersey Shore has one guy that calls himself "The Situation" and there's a short girl that visits the beds of many men.  If you want to sling your own Jersey Shore-based heckles at Rutgers fans, go right ahead with your juvenile and completely predictable pestering.  However, you won't hear that kind of childish badgering coming from me.

Folks, I prefer to keep my heckling ingeniously clever in conception and execution.  That is why I suggest loudly repeating  "Buuuuutt-gers, Buuuuutt-gers" nice and slowly into a megaphone as Scarlet Knight fans walk by the tailgate.. 

What else do we know about this new addition to the B1G?

Thanks for asking, Mr. Bold Font Guy.  Their best season in program history was in 2006.  They played in the Texas Bowl that year.

 

Mr. Marbles' Gameday

Mr. Marbles won't be traveling to Columbus this weekend because, well, you know: Ebola.  Rather than sitting in the Ebola incubator they call an "airplane," and dropping over dead by the time it lands, I'll be staying close to home and tailgating on the North Shore as Wilmette's Big Ten Team plays Nebraska. 

 

Wow! Signal

On August 15, 1977, a strong radio signal, believed to have originated from outside of our solar system, was detected by the Big Ear radio telescope in Delaware, Ohio.  The signal extended for a 72 second window and has never been detected again.  Given the speed of Earth's rotation, the expected duration of an extra-terrestrial signal would be exactly 72 seconds, leading many to speculate whether or not this could be evidence of the existence intelligent life somewhere/sometime in the distant universe. 

On September 27, 2014, Pat Fitzgerald led the previously incompetent Fitzgeraldcats to a victory over Penn State and followed up the following week with a convincing win over division favorite Wisconsin.  The capable Fitzgeraldcats then disappeared against Minnesota the following week, as the Gophers, who happen to be coached by a guy that looks like a gopher, took control of the laughable West Division.  Were the Penn State-Wisconsin games Pat's Wow! Signal?  Or will his team return to play like a capable FCS-level team this Saturday against Nebraska?  Either way, I'll be drinking beer in a parking lot amongst a swarm of bees before the game.

 

Ebola Facts

We will all die at some point.

Some of you, dear readers, might already be dead.  Ebola got you three weeks ago, now you're in the transitional after-life universe, like the folks on Lost.  Don't be sad, you still have access to Kropkogate.com in your Limbo-ish after-life, so it's not that bad of a place to be.  I'm like your Mr. Ecko, Stoleygate is the evil Smoke Monster, and Michigan is Phil.

Ebola recently visited the Akron and greater Cleveland area.  Prayers for Lebron, Jim Tressel, and that guy who was really good at quarterbacking in college but now stands on the sidelines with a clipboard for Cleveland's professional football team.   We will continue to monitor the situation and will break-in with updates as they become available.

Those who display symptoms are contagious.  Symptoms include a large growth of anal beads dangling from one's neck, red mustaches, red and grey tone to face, and a general tendency to be an attention seeking asshole. Stay away from these people and report them to the CDC.

Jim Tressel DOES NOT have Ebola at this time.  However, we've not heard from Lebron or the Cleveland football guy.  We will continue to monitor the situation.

 

B1G Expert Pick'em

Each week, a panel of Kropkogate's biggest Mike Rice fans predicts the outcomes of all B1G Ten games. After finishing their picks, they kick, curse, and throw footballs at the heads of the Kropkogate housekeeping and janitorial staff--cause they wanna be like Mike.  Mr. Winkles dominated last week and earned himself a three way with Mr. Marbles and Pizza Hall.  He's got them all tied up with T-Bone and Kropko submissively remaining on bottom eager to join the fun on top.  We're still talking about the standings, right?
