College football rivalry thread.

Well I managed to hold off until 18 hours before kickoff, but a few quick points…
1.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
2.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
3.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
4.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
5.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
6.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
7.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
8.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
9.Osu Sucks, Go Blue
10.Osu Sucks, Go Blue

My personal prediction is that the Suckeyes collapse faster than a bucket of water without the bucket. 35-0

Hail! To the victors, valiant,
Hail! To the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! To Michigan the leaders and best
Hail! To the victors, valiant,
Hail! To the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! To Michigan the champions of the West!

(Why yes I have been drinking, why do you ask?)
Oh yeah and one other thing

Osu Sucks, Go Blue

Learn the words to OU’s fight song! :slight_smile:
Boomer Sooner!

Boomer Sooner!

Boomer Sooner!

Boomer Sooner!

Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I’ll be Sooner dead!

Boomer Sooner!

Boomer Sooner!

Boomer Sooner!

Boomer Sooner!

I feel silly posting this, but here goes:

On, on, U of K
We are right for the fight today
Hold that ball and hit that line
Ev’ry Wildcat star will shine

We’ll fight, fight, fight
For the blue and white
As we roll to that goal, varsity
And we’ll kick, pass and run
'Til the battle is won
And we’ll bring home the victory

(I would like to point out that we have won a national championship. Beat OU in 1950.)

We’re gonna get killed against Georgia.

Rah! Rah! Sis Boom Bah!
Weegle-weegle War damn Eagle
Kick 'em in the butt Big Blue

It’s great to be an Auburn Tiger.

Rama jama, yellowhamma,
Give 'em hell, Alabama!

I don’t pay much heed to big time sports anymore. The players are mostly spoiled brats and the owners, or athletic directors for colleges, are a bunch of greedy bastards.

However, I’m always glad when Iowa beats Minnestoa.

During the 1930’s I used to listen to Dutch Reagan broadcast the Iowa games on WHO Des Moines. That was the time of those Bernie Bierman national chanpionship Minnesota teams. The Golden Gophers habitually scored 50 points while Iowa looked on.
It was sickening and it marked me for life.

Yes, I’ve been drinking too, wolfman, and I need to repeat.

**Hail! to the victors, valiant
Hail! to the conquering heros
Hail!, Hail! to Michigan
The leaders and best!

Hail! to the victors, valiant
Hail! to the conguering heros
Hail! Hail! to Michigan
The champions of the west!**

Beating the Buckeyes is better than Christmas!


It’s all about THE HERD!!!

We are the sons of Marshall
Sons of the great John Marshall
Year after year we go to Marshall U.
Cheering for our team and gaining knowledge, too
Proudly we wear our colors
Love and loyalty we share
Sure from far and near
You’ll always hear
The wearing of the green
For it’s the Green and White of Marshall U.

John Carter of Mars, I should have known!


(It’s a family tradition. Even though my husband, his daughter and I all went to Vanderbilt – we even sat in the Auburn section at Vandy games. :D)

Digging for my burnt orange sweater…

OK, so my roommate had to spend last weekend in Iowa City last week, and had a few evenings out to bars for dinner and drinks. One thing leads to another, and it becomes clear that a few of his group were from my alma mater. Before I tell you what school this is, understand that Iowa and my school do not get along very nicely at all. They are not the “rivaly week” matchup, but the animosity is pretty intense for both football and basketball. Under normal ciscumstances there would have been alot of ribbing going on and alot of fairly intense trash talk regarding decades of past events. However on this occasion, the Iowa fans simply shook they heads and didn;t say much at all. Mostly saying “Sorry man, it’s gotta be tough” and “everyone has times like these”. Please tell me that my beloved Illini haven’t fallen this far. Please.

Well, the spirit is a good so far, but there isn’t enought rivalry yet.

For example:
Q:How do you get am Osu PHD alum to leave you alone?
A: Just pay him for the damn pizza.

No Christmas for you!!! Only pain!


On to consecutive National Championships!!

The Old Oaken bucket rivalry is today. The spread favors Purdue by 24.5 points. That spread is not enough, though. The Loosiers must lose so badly that they feel they are inconsequential to the rest of the earth. They must feel the pain of Purdue’s gut wrenching, overtime loss to OSU.

My humble prediction: Purdue 52, IU 7

Go Boilers!


I have to go to the in-laws today so Ivylad and his dad can watch OSU whoop up on—oops, play Michigan. :smiley:

I will take MIL out of the house to go shopping. I hope we can return safely to find two very happy men.

Otherwise, it’s “Run Mom! Get out of the house! Get out of the house now!”

How does a Sooner get a Nebraska cheerleader into his dorm room?

Grease her hips and PUSH!

Curse you Omniscient you remind me of a sickening Illinois-Iowa game in 1949 (or was it ‘48?). Iowa marched up and down the field at will but couldn’t score. Illinois’ Perry Moss made one scoring drive in the whole game and won 7 zip.

Then Illinois went on to beat UCLA in the first Big Ten-PCC Rose Bowl, 48-14.

Hail, hail to old Purdue
All hail to our old gold and black
Hail, hail to old Purdue
Our friendship may she never lack
Ever grateful, ever true
Thus we raise our song anew
Of the days we spent with you
All hail our old Purdue!

Zoe: You forgot to include Vandy’s fight song:

Dynamite, Dynamite
When Vandy hits the field it’s dynamite

(It goes somethin’ like that)

My best buddy is a Vandy grad that came to Auburn for his degree in Vet medicine. We were neighbors way back then.

Vandy is my “second team”. I feel sorry for them. I went to this year’s Auburn/Vandy game in Nashville, and it looked like 75% of the people in the stands were Auburn folks.

One of my favorite college game memories: Back in the mid-seventies, I was at the game when Tennessee’s Big Orange came to Nashville to play Vandy. Displayed on the side of a dorm, on a huge sheet, was the following message:

“Orange on back
Red on neck
Ain’t worth a sheet”.

Let’s pull 'em both through today!

Fight on State, Fight on State
Strike your gait and win
Victory we predict for thee
Forever true to you Dear Old White and Blue

Onward State, Onward State
Roar Lions Roar
Hit that line, roll up the score
Fight on to Voctory forever more

Fight on, on, on, on, on…

JoePa rules!

Reminds me of some SEC jokes.

What do you get if you put all the Arkansas cheerleaders together?
A full set of teeth.
Why did OJ consider running to Lexington?

No one would ever look for a Heisman Trophy winner there.
