I wish they'd scale down the marching band to pep band size but still have them do the halftime show over the entire field.

A page on Purdue's chemistry department website compares 70 decibels to a vacuum cleaner.

IU hasn't had a crowd that loud in 30 years.

FTFA: A packed stadium can be much louder. Michigan Stadium, for example, has reportedly reached 110 decibels.

Yeah, maybe when the Ohio State fans are doing O-H-I-O around that decrepit toilet bowl. Michigan Stadium is renowned for having a quiet crowd. Hell, Michigan players have said it more than a few times. Lots of people crammed in on seats that are two inches smaller than the standard width doesn't mean squat if their hideously disfigured cheerleaders just hold signs saying "key play."

Jangling keys: not very intimidating, or loud.

Those "super fans" have actual names, neither of which will be divulged due to their douchebaginess.

Guy on the left patiently got pics with loads of kids one year he sat by us at a spring game. Okay, fine.

Dude also went to Earle Bruce's memorial service in full costume. He had enough sense to drop the getup when he oh so graciously gave his time during family visiting hours at the funeral home to sign something specifically marked as for former players and coaches only to sign. Not only that, but he signed it with his cockbag super fan name.

Guy on the right loves the camera and is just a cumstain on your mother's fine silver by comparison. Ask an usher how much they love those two guys, as well as the farkcock that the guy on the right normally goes with who is also a super fan.

Indeed, what a shame that Penn State's full crowd won't get to witness their beloved Nittany Lions choke on applesauce after giving up yet another double digit lead in the fourth quarter. Nice call on fourth and five after one timeout by us and then two timeouts from you guys, by the way. Three timeouts and James Franklin comes up with that garbage? Thanks!

Guy on the right taught Vo-Ag at my high school.

Vacuum cleaner?  Apparently Michigan still sucks.

The stupidity of wearing all white to a game where it actually matches the opposing team's unis is peak PSU.

The Buck-I-Guy (on the left) has made a little niche for himself selling selfies and merch at the State Fair.  I've seen him there 3 years in a row.

Now I remember why I left Ohio.

Go Bucks.

Thanks for reminding me. Those teams had no real idea how to play ahead against great teams being used to making up double digits deficits for two years to win. I remember being at the Rose Bowl against USC and being down 20+ thinking it was fine. Damn near ended up fine.

As you allude, with better play calling, Franklin could have had a three game win streak on Urban Meyer - completely unthinkable. The 2017 game at OSU was particularly frustrating with JoMo calling those moronic handoffs eight yards deep with the RB standing still and the OL barely keeping the DL out of the backfield for more than a second or two. I think one first down would have won that game - maybe passing to Barkley short in the flat and getting him in space might have been more productive. Who knows. Another opportunity this year.

FWIW I hope you guys end up 7-1 and have a healthy and fun season, except on Halloween. :)

That, that was a fun game I was very glad I had no rooting allegiance in because that could have killed me.

The same for you fellas. :)
