Then what was your point then?

No, it doesn't.

I never said OSU/Mich isn't a big rivalry or isn't important. I didn't feel the need to make absurd statements about your teams or their rivalry to build up my team or their game.

I don't have to tear down Mich/OSU to make AL/Aub sound more important. Every list you find ranks them both among the top. And they're all subjective.

I don't feel the need to argue with you about which rivalry is the best. We both know the answer to that.

I was simply pointing out that your argument about the Iron Bowl was stupid.

Which part exactly? I don't feel anything I said was that outlandish.

I knew what the Apple Cup was because I played NCAA 07 and you picked a "major" and one of them was all about rivalry games. That game was ****ing awesome.

Sadly, they only do it once a year, during the night game.

For what it's worth, we also have a blackout game and a goldout game each year. I do think that we should have a tradition where we all wear the same color for every game. I think doing a goldout every game would look good.

20/20 on ABC is doing a show about good samaritans. They teased that they are going to make the case that black people are inherently much more likely to be good samaritans than white people.

Can you just imagine the outcry if they tried to claim that white people were in ANY way better than black people??? People would be fired.

Not you specifically. I was referring to any of the comments that implied that the Iron Bowl wasn't a big rivalry, that nobody outside the state cared or that the teams don't have a big following nationally.

The majority of people are stupid pieces of ****; this is regardless of race. I've meet terrible people of all races and awesome people of all races, and this is true for pretty much everybody. Racism exists because it's too ****ing easy to resort to it. I'm not racist but when a black guy or azn does something stupid, I do find myself thinking racist thoughts. It's just too damn easy.



Speaking of terrible black people, Obama was on campus today. I ****ing hate it when he comes, because they close down so many roads and reroute a bunch of buses that I need to ride on. I did see a Mitt Romney bus on campus today as well, which was kinda funny.

The Big Ten frowns on night games. They don't play very many. Something about the extra security and expense... I don't know. You'd think the prime time TV slots would cover the expense.

The night games have a lot to do with how ****ing cold it can get in late November. IIRC, night games in November are banned in the Big Ten.

Kinnick Stadium contracts out lights for night games.

A white person makes an aid/scholarship group it is open to help everyone, a black person makes one and it's only directed to people of their own color. Really taking the idea of good Samaritan to heart.

I mean yeah im sure the Iron Bowl is intense, but I personally know of recruits who've gotten death threats over our rivalry. The 10 year war? Bo vs Woody? Our rivalry pisses excellence.
Did anyone ever try to dig up Bo's grave? Or defile a major landmark on either campus?
