Week Six Power Poll: 1980s Saturday morning cartoon villains

I’m a child of the 1980s, actually born in 1980, and my childhood in Chicago’s southwestern suburbs was pretty idyllic. Before my Saturday mornings were spent watching ESPN College GameDay, I enjoyed watching cartoons on network TV on Saturday morning! (I didn’t get cable until the mid-90s when a bolt of lightning hit the antenna on my roof and fried every tv in the house).

Saturday morning cartoons were honestly the highlight of my week as a kid, and I learned a lot from watching them. One thing that stuck with me is the memorable villains, some of whom were comical, and one in particular made me cry.

To the polls!

This is what made me cry as a kid. Get fucked, Megatron!

Megatron, leader of the Decepticons from Transformers, ruined a Saturday morning when he murdered benevolent Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots. Just like Megatron, Ohio State is a villainous program that ruins careers (You might need to update your resume, Harbaugh, just sayin..) and the hopes and dreams of fans of other programs wanting to attain glory. Case in point, after Michigan State beat my Wildcats (grrr), Ohio State flat our murdered them last week 52-12.

This week Ohio State is sitting at home because of Covid infections in the Michigan program.
