Link Round-up, Week #6

Blog/site newsOSU FootballThe link round-up is tastier when it simmers an extra day. The links for your perusal:

First off, if you’re a Buckeye fan outside of the Midwest and you barely get to see Ohio State games, this week will be a treat, as pretty much the whole country will be watching OSU/Purdue Saturday evening. This is good. All eyes (that aren’t on LSU/Florida) will be on the Buckeyes, giving them a chance to show the country that the Big Ten is still an elite conference. It is!

We all expected that Tressel-ball would be making a return to the ‘Shoe, what with an untested QB and young offense, but that really hasn’t been the case. This offense has scored 10 of the last 12 times in less than two minutes. That’s called taking care of business.

Yes, it’s very fun and exciting to dog the Big Ten and the hard-headed reliance on 3-yards and yadda yadda, but some people would say that’s crazy talk. From the article:

Surely you do it. SEC snobs chortle that fat slobs in leather helmets and Army boots play Big Ten football — in shades of flickering black and white, of course.

Sunday Morning QB looks at the OSU/Purdue matchup. He points out a fact that should be disheartening to Purdue fans everywhere:

Purdue still hasn’t beaten a team that finished with a winning record since it opened against Akron (7-6 at year’s end) in 2005.

Have you got your App State gear? People are trying to strike while the iron is hot: Men of the Black and Gold?

Some non-OSU items

The Indians blew up the Yankees
in grand fashion Thursday night, taking a 1-0 lead in the ALDS, knocking the crap out of the ball, hitting four taters and getting bunches of runs with two outs. Kenny Lofton stepped into a ten-year time warp and played lights out. This bodes very, very well. Carmona faces the Yankees next. Let’s go Tribe!

This probably deserved its own post, but the thought of Braylon Edwards doing the O-H chant is surely a sign of the apocalypse. Are there any pictures of this? I would pay thousands of Buckeye Bucks for a picture. If Kellen Winslow Jr. joined him, my head would explode.
