Minnesota might be even worse than Northwestern. They got beat by Bowling Green for goodness sake. Buckeyes by five TDs.

Reminds me of the below transcript.

http://snltranscripts.jt.org/90/90jsuperfans.phtml

Bill Swerski: Okay. Okay, by my watch, we're about thirteen minutes from game time. As you are sure aware, Da Bears are getting ready for the big play-off against Da New York Giants. Now, let go around the room for some predictions. Pat?

Pat Arnold: Da Bears, 62 to 3.

Bill Swerski: Okay. Todd.

Todd O'Conner: Bears. 79-zip.

Bill Swerski: Oh, really? You don't think that Da Giants will score?

Todd O'Conner: No, I do not! Da Bears defense is like a wall. You can't go through it!

Bill Swerski: Alright. How about you, Carl?

Carl Wollarski: I say Bears, 52 to 14.

Pat Arnold: Oh, what? Come on!

Carl Wollarski: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I gotta give Da Giants credit - I think they'll give Da Bears a game!

Bill Swerski: Alright, leave him alone, that's his prerogative! As for my prediction.. at game's end, uh.. there won't be two teams of contrasting moods heading off da field, my friends. One gloom, one gleeful. The gleeful, of which be.. Da Bears!

Superfans: Da Bears!!

Bill Swerski: 74 to 2! I mean, after all, our civic pride is on the line. Because, let's face it, if New York were to somehow beat Chicago, we'd never hear the end of it.

Todd O'Conner: Aw, they would love it over there!

Bill Swerski: You know, it's absurd, really, that we would even have to waste our time comparing ourselves to that crime-ridden rathole!

Carl Wollarski: Absolutely!

Bill Swerski: I mean, for example, which building would you rather have - the Empire State Building, or Da Sears Tower? Pat?

Pat Arnold: Sears.

Bill Swerski: Carl?

Carl Wollarski: Sears is taller.

Bill Swerski: Todd?

Todd O'Conner: Sears.

Carl Wollarski: Sears!

Superfans: Da Sears!!

Bill Swerski: Alright, alright! Now, let me shift gears here for a moment. What is God's role in this? Obviously, he's rooting for Da Bears.

Pat Arnold: Otherwise, he wouldn't have put 'em in Chicago.

Carl Wollarski: That's right.

Bill Swerski: That's right. Da question is: Now, did God create Da Bears, and make them superior to all teams? Or is he simply a huge fan, and Ditka made them superior to all other teams?

Carl Wollarski: That's a tough one.

[ Waitress interrupts ]

Waitress: Alright, guys, here's your food. Who had da bratwurst?

Pat Arnold: I had da bratwurst.

Waitress: Alright. Bratwurst. [ places down tray ]

Carl Wollarski: I had da Polish sausage!

Todd O'Conner: I ordered a knockwurst and pork chops!

Bill Swerski: Yeah.. please, next time, bring da food during da commercials, darling, alright?

Waitress: Just doing my job.

Bill Swerski: Yeah, alright.

[ Waitress exits ]

Todd O'Conner: Could you pass the ketchup?

Bill Swerski: Okay, well.. I see now that it's almost time for the foregone conclusion that is today's game.

Pat Arnold; Not gonna be pretty!

Todd O'Conner: Bears!

Superfans: Bears!!

Bill Swerski: Now, gentlemen, let me ask you this: What if Da Bears were all 14 inches tall, you know, about so high? Now, what's your score of today's game?

Carl Wollarski: Against Da Giants?

Bill Swerski: Yes, give 'em a handicap.

Carl Wollarski: Bears 18, Giants 10. And that would finally be a good game.

Pat Arnold: Yeah, it would be a good game. Mini Bears 24, Giants 14.

Todd O'Conner: What about Ditka? Would he be mini, too?

Bill Swerski: No, he would be full-grown.

Todd O'Conner: Oh, then, uh.. Mini Bears 31, Giants 7.

Carl Wollarski: Oh, hold on. Then I change mine, too. I thought it was Mini Ditka.

Bill Swerski: Okay, gentlemen, another scenario: Da Bears, they don't make it, the plane is delayed.. and the only one who shows up is Ditka. Ditka vs. Da Giants. Okay, score, gentlemen.

Pat Arnold: Alright, after da heart attack, I gotta say Ditka 17, Giants 14. He just barely gets by.

Bill Swerski: Alright, that sounds exciting. Perhaps, you know, a late Ditka field goal.

Gophers have scored a lot of points this year, so I expect they will score at least a few Saturday.

OSU 41
Minnesota 16

The Gophers would be bad even as a MAC team.

That said, I think the Bucks are due for an offensive letdown.

Laying the throne on the line.

Minnesota, as I mentioned last week, lost to Bowling Green and Florida Atlantic. Yes, Florida Atlantic.

I don't think this team gets caught caught looking toward Purdue, though it is my one and only concern.

52-10 OSU.

48-24 OSU

BIG days for Mo Wells and Hartline. Malcolm Jenkins finally gets that Def TD I've been predicting for a couple weeks. Robiskie and Pretorious have another solid day, helping move my world beater college fantasy football team to 4-1.

Minnesota should be forced to take a 15 yard penalty for every play that they wear those god awful yellow uniforms. That shit makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit every time I see it, and has to put the Buckeyes at a severe disadvantage.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a bit of a let down on the Buckeyes D tonight.

Let's face it they have been playing hard and well for a month now.

Agree about the Gophers uni's.

They almost make me like the wolverines unis, almost.

WOW, are you kidding me.

JT fake punt on the first drive of the game?

....and a near botched snap and Trepasso still rumbles quite a few yards to get the first.

Just WOW!

Dude what a throw and catch.

Robo is really stepping into his own now that he is the man at OSU.

I wasn't aware that Boeckman had that type of an arm either.

Boeckman has a good arm, it isn't as good as Smith's who had the 2nd strongest in the combine, but it is good. Schoenhoft has a RIDICULOUS arm, probaby stronger than Smith's.

Hey, almost nailed the score. I had a feeling the Bucks would settle for 3 or more field goals tonight.

Games like tonight remind me of why I respect Tressel so much. Back in the Cooper era, his team would have completely came out flat in this game and either 1) lose 2) just squeak by.
