      Youngstown State would be tougher than any of the scrubs Marsha has on it's schedule.

    My lord what a prime time matchup!

    College Gameday might even show up for that one...woo

    Hell yeah Herd keep scheduling those SEC type of games. Maybe you can take a pen and on your Geno's Marshall schedule you can just right the word State behind Ohio and you can really get pumped up for this slober-knocker.

    Great game! Love the Battle for the Bell. This is what I miss most about non-regional conferences. It's circled on my calendar!
