Super upvotes for the numerous game posters.  Walt's posters on EW really keep up the trend of great Ohio State football art.

Walt's posters have been great. This week's is especially good.

Who would have thought Purdue would be the team that has created the most classic games against OSU since 2000?
2002- Holy Buckeye
2003- Both top-10 (I believe...), game goes into OT, Purdue misses FG and OSU wins 16-13
2009- Biggest win for Purdue in a looooooong time.  Calls for Pryor to WR
2011- f**ked up game
2012- The legend of Kenny G is born! Rivaled 2002 game and might have gone down as a better game had OSU been eligible to play in the postseason.
2013- Im hoping its 83-2 good guys.  To prove he's not running it up, Urban will purposefully take a safety while up by only 68 points.

Time for the recent, inexplicable struggles to become a thing of the past.

Ready to see Ohio State re-assert themselves with conviction in this series, beginning Saturday.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

The 2003 game still ranks as one of the top 5 loudest crowds I've heard at the Shoe.  The Will Smith sack in the endzone...man, the place was going crazy.

I don't know if I have ever wanted Ohio State to beat the everloving sh*t out of a terrible team as badly as I want them too this Saturday.  Not only am I sick, and I mean SICK, of Purdue putting some mileage on my heart and nerves, but if we don't Hiroshima the crap out of West Lafayette it will assuredly be held against us by every voter.  We will never hear the end of it.
