It's not a joke. PSU is lucky to even still have a football team after that one. The only thing low class and tasteless is how PSU fans actually supported Joe Pa in his ignorance of the thing.

Yeah except the NCAA admitted it was wrong. It was a criminal case. And nothing to joke about, the fact you think that speaks volumes.


The NCAA did not absolve him. He even said in hindsight he wished he'd have done more. The only joke here is that PSU fans actually support him still to this day, knowing that he barely even did a thing to stop Sandusky from doing that to children. I watched Happy Valley doc and how brainwashed people are there that they cared more about their football team than numerous innocent children who had that done to them right under his nose with him barely doing anything. PSU fans became the most disgusting bunch when they showed they still supported that man.

OSU fans may be prideful, cocky at times, but we don't support crap like that EVER.

bringing up the whole sandusky thing is a pretty low blow, and trying to use it as a diss towards penn state is pretty demeaning to the victims of Sandusky. Kind of immature to try and hit that.

The NCAA removed the sanctions and said it overstepped its bounds on the school bud. And that doc was crap, he actually did a lot of good, but he himself admitted he F'ed up. He did, and that's awful. BUt you making jokes about it is low class and tasteless and tells me a lot about your fanbase and yourself.

I'm sure you're ecstatic since they won one a couple years ago, and congrats for that, and they won one 12 or so years before that, but how many others have you been alive for? Their last one prior to that was what, 68?

You're now going to brag about championships you were not around for? Can't wait for a Princeton fan to jump in and saying LOL'ing at you and you don't hold a candle to their 26 national championships.

And no need to bring up low points for a university that don't relate to the discussion at hand, which could probably be considered derailing, baiting or possibly trolling.

Haha excuses excuses. You can never hide from that. Your grandchildren will grow up with that filth looming over PSU still. Yes, it is sooooo low to diss PSU for that, In fact, it is much better to defend the actions like PSU fans do. That makes so much more sense!

Now back to football since I don't want to hurt anyones feelings in the contest of sports banter.

OSU is #3, PSU is #5. OSU losing to PSU was best thing to happen to our team. OSU does better when they get a wake up call against in inferior team. Plus it also allowed us an extra week to rest up. Now OSU will go into the playoffs as the freshest team. All PSU fans can continue to do is cry. But hey maybe if you're lucky, OSU will win it all and you can brag about how you beat us, all while we are having another trophy celebration at Ohio Stadium.

How many teams can brag about numerous titles in the BCS/playoff era? Who else can say they were the first ever playoff winner in CFB history? Am I not allowed to be proud of my football teams history of success... that is better than PSU's to boot?

I backed off the discussion of PSU Scandal already...

Alright pal I'll just end it here. I hope your team gets shellacked because you and your crap fanbase deserve it. You're low class as is your entire school, you don't have any academic standards, your coach is a scum bag who left a school using a "medical condition" as an excuse, has more scandals than PSU ever will, and doesn't have the history. You bringing that up will piss me off and yea I'm gonna go off on you.

All you've done here is brag like your team won something, when they lost their own conference. Its a scumbag move to bring that **** up and you know it. Get over your self important ideas, your school lost and will again.

I made my last post before seeing this one, but you don't need to generalize a fan base either. Continuing to bring up these things isn't respectful to those children either who should be able to move on with their lives without people talking about it years later as well.

Thanks! Good effort though. I for one am not going to root against PSU because I do think they have a darn good team. Funny thing I was pretty dang respectful for quite awhile, but listening to PSU fans whine about the same thing over and over again gets old. You don't know anything about OSU, all you show is how jealous you are. Instead of admitting 2 loss teams don't get in, you try and ignore things like it never happened. You ignore how OSU beat UM who killed you, but oh when that doesn't fit the narrative you make excuses about injuries. Your PSU excuses are old and tired.

Better luck making the playoffs next year, the committee decided they don't want a repeat of MSU in 2015, so they left PSU out rightfully and put in the real B10 team. Get over it someday, or at least try.

What's funny is bondom after they won the conf championship said in multiple places I read that he doesn't care about how the voting played out and was just happy and will enjoy the bowl game. Then in this thread he posted a meme that appeared to be funny based on his (Meyer's) team getting in while not winning their conference (no matter when it was said, it's still a funny one he probably came across).

And he later stated they beat them h2h. Whether or not that's the best argument for who is a better team, it's a pretty good one. I personally don't always use it but plenty of people do.

So he hadn't really whined about Penn St getting in before you started telling him how jealous he was, the number of titles, and all that other crazy stuff you brought up.

Not quite, it really started Saturday after PSU won. I said " I hope for PSU's sake they don't make it in lol. I hope they stay at #5, bc honestly if they get in it would likely be at #4, and I wouldn't want them to have to face Bama. It's amazing what they did the last 9 games, it's amazing how they came back in this game against a dang good D. I wouldn't want to see them have to face Bama in the 1st round and have it all obliterated. I know regardless PSU fans would and should be excited as heck for this season, nobody saw this coming." That was in the conference championship thread. That's where our initial exchanges began. His picture of Urban today was just another shot in our long going banter.

Idk how many times h2h has proven to mean nothing, but it has many times. Take a look at Ole Miss and beating Bama last year, did that matter? Look at VaTech to OSU in 2014? Did that end up mattering? Look at Pitt this year vs PSU, does that matter? Well kinda bc that gave PSU 2 losses, 2 very bad losses at the time. I get that those teams weren't vying for a CFB playoff spot, but the point stands, teams lose games they shouldn't to teams they shouldn't. Happens all the time. A point they ignore is how OSU beat UM, a team that killed PSU, and thus nullified PSU win over OSU. PSU also needed OSU to beat UM, they needed help just like OSU did when Wash, UM, and Clemson all lost allowing OSU back in the rankings.

In essence, he said he didn't care about PSU not getting in, then went onto care A LOT. It's very clear looking through the two main threads of it. Believe it or not he actually agreed that OSU and PSU should get in, as did I. Then he proceeded to go against that saying OSU didn't win the conference so PSU should be in an OSU should be out.

You quoting a post of your's and telling you about a meme I already mentioned isn't telling me anything. I never saw a post saying they SHOULD get in. I just saw him saying he doesn't care either way, before or after the games, such as "no matter what happens with the playoffs, I just want to win" before the game and when brought up elsewhere about the playoff voting before the votes "I don't care. I'm just happy". And while I'm sure he did care to some extent as would any fan, he probably knew it was a long shot and he sure as hell knew it wouldn't be at the expense of Ohio St. He did say they beat them h2h. To me, h2h victories in college football don't carry as much weight for a couple of reasons. One always has homefield advantage. None of these teams who beat each other won a road game.

It simply comes down to overall win % here.

Then in this thread he posted a meme that appeared to be funny based on his (Meyer's) team getting in while not winning their conference (no matter when it was said, it's still a funny one he probably came across).

And he later stated they beat them h2h. Whether or not that's the best argument for who is a better team, it's a pretty good one. I personally don't always use it but plenty of people do.

So he hadn't really whined about Penn St getting in before you started telling him how jealous he was, the number of titles, and all that other crazy stuff you brought up.


Not quite, it really started Saturday after PSU won. I said " I hope for PSU's sake they don't make it in lol. I hope they stay at #5, bc honestly if they get in it would likely be at #4, and I wouldn't want them to have to face Bama. It's amazing what they did the last 9 games, it's amazing how they came back in this game against a dang good D. I wouldn't want to see them have to face Bama in the 1st round and have it all obliterated. I know regardless PSU fans would and should be excited as heck for this season, nobody saw this coming." That was in the conference championship thread. That's where our initial exchanges began. His picture of Urban today was just another shot in our long going banter.

Idk how many times h2h has proven to mean nothing, but it has many times. Take a look at Ole Miss and beating Bama last year, did that matter? Look at VaTech to OSU in 2014? Did that end up mattering? Look at Pitt this year vs PSU, does that matter? Well kinda bc that gave PSU 2 losses, 2 very bad losses at the time. I get that those teams weren't vying for a CFB playoff spot, but the point stands, teams lose games they shouldn't to teams they shouldn't. Happens all the time. A point they ignore is how OSU beat UM, a team that killed PSU, and thus nullified PSU win over OSU. PSU also needed OSU to beat UM, they needed help just like OSU did when Wash, UM, and Clemson all lost allowing OSU back in the rankings.

In essence, he said he didn't care about PSU not getting in, then went onto care A LOT. It's very clear looking through the two main threads of it. Believe it or not he actually agreed that OSU and PSU should get in, as did I. Then he proceeded to go against that saying OSU didn't win the conference so PSU should be in an OSU should be out.


You quoting a post of your's and telling you about a meme I already mentioned isn't telling me anything. I never saw a post saying they SHOULD get in. I just saw him saying he doesn't care either way, before or after the games, such as "no matter what happens with the playoffs, I just want to win" before the game and when brought up elsewhere about the playoff voting before the votes "I don't care. I'm just happy". And while I'm sure he did care to some extent as would any fan, he probably knew it was a long shot and he sure as hell knew it wouldn't be at the expense of Ohio St. He did say they beat them h2h. To me, h2h victories in college football don't carry as much weight for a couple of reasons. One always has homefield advantage. None of these teams who beat each other won a road game.

It simply comes down to overall win % here.


He spent a whole day bashing OSU because they were in and his team wasn't. The point is very clear, he feels PSU was justified to be in, especially over OSU. Not sure what else you could possibly get from that. He pretended at first that he didn't care, but after PSU won the B10 his excitement took over and he all of a sudden felt that PSU was mistreated by the committee.

I agree h2h isn't the end all be all. It is better used as a tie-breaker, but in this case PSU has 2 losses, 2 bad losses at that. Had PSU been a 1 loss team, they would certainly be in at 2 or 3. What I really really don't get is his insistence that PSU owns OSU bc they beat us. You don't see UM fans trashing PSU fans for their win anymore and you know why, because OSU beat UM. They are smart enough to realize we all beat each-other. It's not like we are Wisconsin who lost to all 3.

Instead of continuing your "he said stuff' please link me to those posts where he said those things, because I'm certainly not going to take your word for it. Much appreciated.

Don't think I said they don't deserve it.

Said I didn't think they'd get it. I still don't. They still should. They beat tOSU, and beat common opponents more impressively over the last month. If OSU deserved it they should have won when they had the chance.


There ya go :D
