Distraught over watching rose bowl

Who do Buckeye fans cheer for in this one? Here's how I see it:

Cheer for Texas:
- Humiliate UM
- Hurt UM's recruiting, help OSU in midwest?

Cheer against Texas (this could be misconstrued as cheering for UM, which it is not):
- Earn respect for Big10
- Make our win look more impressive
- Prevent Texas from building momentum for next fall in C-bus
- Keep Carr from retiring, he's an honorary 13th man for the bucks

I root BigTen in bowl games, regardless of my hatred for the team.. My love for the BigTen minus my hate for the BigTen team playing... equals a larger positive than the shitty ass out of BigTen team they are playing.. :) :)

Naw, I just get razzed by some of my friends for ever "cheering" for TSUN.

I've always been a big10 supporter, and am already going out on a limb by thinking UM could trash UT. UT is definitely the favorite in my book, but I think there's a lot of reasons this could be a big upset and a big win for the Big10.

I think the Big Ten could win all but one game in the postseason.

Ohio State can make a big statement in taking it to the OkieState team that gave those sooners so much trouble.

Iowa also has a big task of keeping LSU down, which would be a huge victory over a good LSU team.

Purdue is going to smoke ASU.

Alabama will take care of Minnesota, sadly. But this isn't a big loss for the big10.

Have your cake and eat it too! Root for scUM in the bowl game, and root for them to embarrass themselves in the parade.:scum4:

California got screwed out of the Rose Bowl....

so I guess I'll cheer for Michigan. I think that it was b.s. that the Rose Bowl was unable to select Cal for the Pac 10 slot, but there it is. Texas's bitching and moaning has won them the spot, so I hope that they get kicked in the ass for their troubles!

Lloyd Carr leads team out during their run onto the field
Carr trips and falls to his humiliating demise
All of his hyped up players can't help but trample him
Most try to avoid him however and it causes the whole team to fall to the ground

Carr then schedules a news conference and points out how the ground crew worker told him he would not normally put that hole there but was ordered to by the Ohio State athletic dept. Which is intersting because Tressel said in his Alamo bowl press conference he hoped the big ten represented itself well in the bowls.

Hook 'em Horns! I fucking hate Michigan. I'll root for every other team in the Big Ten.

Call me crazy, but I like how Michigan and Iowa get into BCS games and lose, while OSU gets in and ends dynasties and such.

I want Texas coming into Ohio Stadium full steam ahead next season. Hawk is going to wreck Vince's world, Youboty is going to make them feel stupid for letting him out of their state, and Ginn is going to glide past them without getting his jersey dirty.

Well, I always say that I'm gonna root for scUM because they're in the Big Ten(+1), but when the game finally starts, I always end up rooting for them to get their asses kicked instead. I just can't help it. :biggrin:

I shall qoute myself from the week before the tOSU-scUM game: "Three-Loss-Lloyd is 9-1 with only two more games to go." Is there any doubt that scUM is going to lose this game. I'm rooting for Texas all the way. I love watching scUM keep going 9-3...especially when they keep losing to us and losing their bowl games. I think John Cooper took over Lloyd Carr's body and is now coaching scUM.

I don't like Texas, though. I don't like the Big-12 in general. Besides the three Florida football teams, Big-12 is my least favorite. I don't like the fact that the Big-12 is playing in the Rose Bowl. I really wish Cal was here, for MANY reasons, but then at least I could completely root for them. I honestly just don't have that much interest in this game. I'd like to see Henne and Hart get shut down, Edwards can have a great game cuz he's gone anyway. And Cedric Benson can have a great game too, since we won't be seeing him next year either.

But like I said, i'll root for Texas. And here is a big reason why, other than just plain hate for scUM. It will improve their ranking next year...and will in turn improve our ranking when we beat them. Beating a top 5 Texas team could put us in good position to get to the Rose Bowl.

While I won't "root" for Michigan per se, I would prefer they win so that our win over them looks that much more impressive and makes our conference look better. On the other hand, if Texas wins, it'll make our win over them next year even better. :biggrin:
