Capped-off by an impressive 92-yard drive orchestrated by a previously struggling Joe Flacco, the Ravens extended their record to 6-2 with a 23-20 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the win, the Ravens recorded their first season sweep of Steelers since 2006.
The win, the fashion as well as the name of the losers, fired-up the city of Baltimore and the Ravens. “There’s the Super Bowl, and then there’s Ravens vs. Steelers,” said Terrell Suggs days before the match-up. The Ravens certainly celebrated like they had won the Super Bowl, with Gatorade baths and all, after the win on Sunday.
Aside from Joe Flacco, no other Raven was talked about more Monday morning than linebacker Terrell Suggs whose third quarter interception set Baltimore up for their first touchdown of the night.
Suggs appeared on ESPN’s First Take to debate Skip Bayless once again, this time with a Steelers sweep under his belt:
Terrell also created a new trend with his introduction during the game. Instead of saying his name – Terrell Suggs – and his college – Arizona State University (or even his high school – Hamilton High School), Terrell introduced himself as “Sizzle” from “Ball So Hard University,” an homage to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s new hit song – “Ni**as in Paris.”
As soon as Sizzle uttered the name of his fictional college, Ball So Hard University was being plastered on T-shirts and skyrocketing to the tops of college applicants’ lists.
Protect This Yard, t-shirt gurus for Baltimore sports, are selling two different versions of Ball So Hard U shirts.
Someone even went as far as writing a brochure-like description for BSHU.
The Ravens currently sit third on ESPN’s power rankings, behind only the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers and the Other Harbaugh-led San Francisco 49er’s.
