Ohio State football season doesn't start until Saturday and I'm already sick of the media hype. Couple the season opener with the emergence of the Big 10 Network and you have a major outbreak of bullcrap. In case you didn't know the cable companies are fighting over rights fees with the Big 10 Network. If you don't have Directv, tickets to the game or wanna go to a bar, you won't see Ohio State open the season against Youngstown State. The Columbus media meanwhile makes this out to sound like you're gonna miss out on the Michigan game. Its Youngstown State for cryin' out loud. Who cares if you miss this game? It'll be over with before the "i" is dotted in Script Ohio. Me and the 4 readers of this blog could beat YSU.
While I'm griping about all things Ohio State Football....If I see anything else that says the Buckeyes aren't "rebuilding, they're reloading!" I'm gonna go postal. Hey pinheads at WCMH...they lost their Heisman trophy winning QB, starting tailback and both starting receivers...they are rebuilding! Deal with it. The last time they took the field they got destroyed by a superior Florida squad. Deal with the reality that despite a schedule that features YSU, Kent and Akron the Bucks will be lucky to go 8-3.
Ohio has more pressing issues than football and the Big 10 Network...say like being one of the poorest states in the country:http://www.cleveland.com/news/plaindealer/index.ssf?/base/cuyahoga/1188376287105410.xml&coll=2
