2017 OHIO STATE Football Schedule, how far do they go?

Recommended Posts

I said they're the underdog. Clearly that's all that matters. They might prove Vegas wrong and beat Maryland too. We'll see

I don't debate facts...when I see facts. You need to prove your facts. What are these 8 games? I see only 7 in which UM would be "heavily favored".

It certainly does not apply to Florida, Michigan St. Penn St. Wisconsin, or Ohio State. That leaves 7 on your schedule.

The only thing I can think of is that you have UM "heavily favored" over Michigan St. But I don't see why that would be the case. Slightly favored at best.

So.....prove it. Show us/give us links to authoritative betting lines that "heavily" favor you in 8 games.

Michigan State?!?! Seriously?

 

Do you watch College football at all? Follow it at all?

Definitely a toss up

Note: I was checking some odds. At this point you can't find them for every game, just for some of the big games and for the first week or so. Here is what I found:

 

OSU 20-21 pt favorite over Indiana

OSU 8 pt. favorite over Oklahoma

OSU 8.5 pt. favorite over Penn St.

OSU 8 pt. favorite over Michigan

 

Michigan 3 pt. favorite over Florida

Michigan 15 pt. favorite over Michigan St. (so there is your 8th "heavily favored"

Michigan 14 pt. underdog to Penn St.

Yes, and I have seen Michigan State be the stronger program in that state for practically the last decade. Just now it seems that MSU has fallen off. Perhaps I didn't realize it was that bad. Perhaps I don't believe it is that bad...in fact I don't.

So...I agree with you.....MSU/UM is a toss up.

UM and OSU have about the same 'difficulty" in terms of non-conf. schedule.

 

And while I have not seen any lines, is there any game on their schedule that OSU is not favored in?

Sigh

 

This is where I shake my head, realize there's no point in responding, and can only assume 99% of CFB fans agree.

We all shake our heads over your ignorance.....MSU HAS been the better program for a decade. So, yes, 99% of CFB fans agree on that. Last year they were not.

This year remains to be seen. YOU...and other think MU is so much better than MSU this year as well......but that is yet to be proven....on the field....not in the sports books.

Coming from the guy that didn't even realize MSU was a bad team and not favored vs Michigan as of a day ago.

 

Spend some time, look through MSUs offseason news, and get back to me.

You don't know that MSU will be a bad team this year. Just because they were last year...or because of some bad news. Hell UM is all about bad news. MU could be just as bad as MSU, given all their losses to graduation and the NFL.

And I did figure that UM would be favored...even though I didn't look it up until later. I assumed they would be favored by some.....but you said "heavily favored". I didn't think off the top of my head that they would be more than a TD favorite.

But, yes, they are "heavily favored"...right now. That could certainly change as the season goes along.

 

I didn't figure that UM would be a 15 pt. underdog to Penn St. But they are. I would wager you had no clue that that would be the case there.

 

Besides...you get a lot of oddities on these early betting lines. OSU is an 8 pt. favorite over both UM and PSU. But PSU is a 15 pt. favorite over um. If PSU is a 15 pt. favorite over um, and OSU is an 8 pt. favorite over PSU...then why is OSU not a 23 pt. favorite over um. Maybe they should be?

- We're not UM or MU

- Yes, I knew we were a heavy underdog against PSU (depending on where you look). The PSU hype is real.

- Home vs Away is much of the difference there.

You are what I say you are. YOu can be UM or MU or TUN...or whatever. Deal with it. I don't care what you call yourselves...but just out of curiosity...what is it that you think your former school should be called? (besides the Team of Constant Sorrow?)

Three points is usually all. Home vs. away doesn't explain the aberration above.

There is nothing wrong...nor idiotic about it. It is Michigan University...is it not.

Nothing is established except within the cavern of that hole you call a brain. NO one thinks I am an idiot. They believe you are the idiot for being such a puckered sphincter over what um is called.

 

They all think I am a fucking hero. They needed a hero....and here I am ....a Superman....larger than life. They can feel my approach like a fire in their blood. Battling against puny evil little .minions such as yourself.

My knowledge is 10,000 times more than yours. You have knowledge about one one fucked up thing only. And you think that because others don't have your knowledge of FMU...that they don't know things.....but it is you that knows nothing. Probably that FMU education.
