A mythical bar stool debate between fans with competing viewpoints after Tuesday's loss:
Tom: It was a matter of time before this team came down to earth. No way they should've been ranked in the top 25.
Steve: Relax. They lost what amounts to be a little more than an exhibition game.
T: What was Campbell thinking passing up a go-ahead field goal in the fourth quarter? His kicker is one of the most reliable in the nation!
S: So is his running back. Sometimes a gamble comes up snake eyes.
T: Wasn't that Tuke fella supposed to make a difference on defense? His scheme is garbage.
S: He's 8-2 as the coordinator, and that "garbage" scheme won us several close games.
T: Whatever. I want to make the trip to DeKalb next week, but my darn boss won't let me off.
S: Poor thing. More than 400,000 Ohioans are out of work. Besides, you ever seen DeKalb?
T: When we lose, our season will be over.
S: When we win, we're heading to Detroit. Inform your boss now.
T: Oh, c'mon. Northern Illinois beat us the past two years to win the West.
S: Third time's a charm, my man.
T: Zip it. It's your turn to buy a round.
S: Drink up. Your glass is half full.
