We're 45 days away from Buckeye football, so Brutus did the only sensible thing and petitioned the powers that be to proclaim today "Archie Griffin Day" in the state of Ohio. And we all know that if Brutus wants something in Ohio, Brutus gets something in Ohio.

July 17, 2013: Archie Griffin Day in the state of Ohio

Congrats, Mr. Griffin!

For more on Archie, be sure check out the interview we conducted with the only two-time Heisman Trophy winner earlier this week.

This is where I remind everyone of our commenting policy. Let's keep the politics out of this thread, please.

Archie for President!!! (That's not political at all - just good sense; Archie's the man.)
Seriously though, Archie Griffin is perhaps the greatest living ambassador for The Ohio State University. He's a shining example of being a good man, and paying it forward.

He comes from a great era of college football, and rightfully stands out to this day for his efforts on and off the football field.

Well deserved.

Was this pic ever used for a Photoshop Phriday? And if not, why?

Remind me again why Archie isn't the Athletic Director instead of what's his name...

I like they made Archie day on the day he arrived at OSU, but wouldn't April 5 perhaps be a better day?

45 days until the season starts.  This is good enough for me!

I love how Archie is always there.  Every tailgate, every photobomb, meeting with recruits, pulse on the program, positive energy.  Every photo I see of him, he is smiling.  He is the guy everyone wants as the one who has their back.

Archie is and always has been a class act.
