Watching Archie on the Purdue telecast live. Archie is always such a class act! For about an hour and a half BTN has been advertising it and  the typical highlights are there: Michigan got hosed, if Franklin didn't get injured.......Etc. Etc.

When they ask Archie about it he is a true pro as is expected. Applauds Michigan and agreed he thought they'd be selected as Ohio State last handily to USC the year before in the Rose Bowl. Then comes absolute gold from arguably the greatest Buckeye of them all:


"Don't forget the game ended in a tie! Michigan acts like they won the game but they didn't beat us. It was a tie. The game was also played in Michigan so we tied them with the home field advantage they had!" We got to go and we beat USC!"


and that folks is how you represent your Alma Mater. Archie could've easily appeased the BTN  and played along to hype the program like a certain former player has been known to do from time to time. However Archie eloquently Puts things into perspective with pride and honor. Anywho I wanted to put this little piece of Buckeye pride out there for all of us eleven warriors out there worried about National Perception and lack of respect for our Buckeyes. Urban has the team focused and Archie will always have Buckeye Nation's Back! Thanks again Archie!!!!

I Love me Some Archie!!!!!!!

Archie will always make us proud to be Buckeyes. With that smile and undying enthusiasm for all things Ohio State he is kind of like the Ernie Banks of Ohio State. He has an undying love for the game and his team!

I loved how he made the case so calm and convincingly like that.  It definitely put a smile on my face and I couldn't help but imagine a bunch of Michigan fans squirming around.

I loved it! Especially when he said "those Mich*gan people act like they won the game...they didn't. It was a tie".  You just got that feel that the rivalry means a lot to him & he didn't feel any shame that OSU went to the Rose Bowl.

I am proud to call Archie my classmate and it was my honor and pleasure to watch him play all four years and graduate with him.  He is a great ambassador for the Univeristy and the Alumni and through all of the praise and accolades has kept his human touch and humility.

He is the best representative a university could ever hope to have.  Such class, and that great smile.  The only double Heisman winner and he never acts like a primma donna.  Can't get enough of Archie!

Archie has REAL class.  Not the kind those arrogant jerks up north exhibit.  And even without that, he's the greatest of all time.
