Unemployed? Out of school for the summer? Able to watch television while working?

You're in luck! Today, BTN will air the first of this summer's two full days of Ohio State programming as part of "School Days." Archie Griffin's Big Ten Icons episode kicks things off at 3:30 p.m., followed by the most recent episode of The Game, with memorable performances by Carlos Hyde, Marcus Hall and others.

University Showcase featuring Jesse Owens follows, and then the 2013 Big Ten men's basketball championship win over Wisconsin and two more nail-biters against the Wolverines, including two of the most perfect games ever played, the wins from 2002 and 2006.

Time (ET) Programming
3:30 p.m. Big Ten Icons: Archie Griffin
4 p.m. Big Ten Game of the Week: Ohio State 42, Michigan 41 (11/30/13)
6 p.m. University Showcase: Jesse Owens
6:30 p.m. Big Ten Classic: 2013 Big Ten Tournament Championship (vs. Wisconsin)
8 p.m. Big Ten Football's Greatest Games: Ohio State 14, Michigan 9 (11/23/2002)
10 p.m. Big Ten Football's Greatest Games: Ohio State 42, Michigan 39 (11/18/2006)

All great games and worth your time, but if you're listening, BTN, we'd love to see some more deep cuts. Like Ohio State throttling Pitt, 72–0 or John Elway and his Stanford Cardinal taking on the Buckeyes.

Please.

Sweet!! I've been waiting for BTN to re-air The Game from 2002 since that network started. If they've shown it before today, I wasn't aware.

Beating Bert one last time in OT on his own field before he scuttled away to the Ozarks was pretty satisfying too.

Nice.  Those are some great games. I'll be sure to stop home and set my DVR. 

They had on the 97 Rose Bowl last night. I turned it on just in time to catch the 4th quarter...and to watch Joey G smash Jake the Snakes comeback bid. Demetrius Stanley caught a number of balls then a game frosh named David Boston hit pay dirt (twice). Awesome game. 

I forgot Pat Tillman was on that ASU squad.

One of the best games of the Cooper era. Germaine was a surgeon.

Yet he still split time with Stanley Jackson. I won't ever understand that logic.

Neither will I.

He had the wheel for that last drive all to himself thankfully.

Don't forget the other notables:

Offense had Orlando Pace and Pepe Pearson, too...

Defense had Katzenmoyer, Shawn Springs AND Antoine Winfield, the bookends - Vrabel and Finkes, and even Greg Bellisari... that defense was national title worthy...

Don't forget Luke... he played that game with a torn pectoral if I recall correctly.

Hell of a man, hell of a leader.

Fire Fickell.

Can't get enough of the Buckeye love. I can appreciate that there are people out there that don't like the B1G network but for us that don't live in the backyard of Buckeye Country it's a great way to keep us involved.

Just finished watching the recap of the 2002 Championship season.  First, much love for Mike Doss for coming back his senior season to win a championship.  I think my favorite quote is The Senator talking about Krenzel, and how there are a lot of guys with a 3.75 GPA brain, but when the pressures on, they're not so smart.  Krenzel, when the pressure was on, was still 3.75 GPA smart.  

And he was 4.0 GPA tough.  So many favorites on that team...Krenzel, Gamble, Wilhelm,  Grant, Doss, Jenkins, Smith, Scott, Peterson, 

I'm in for $50 if we want to take up a collection for charity to acquire the Tressel in Cornrows video!

Someone has to have a copy of the corn rows video, right? At least a photo...

I know a guy that was a bench-warming QB at BW when Tressel was also a QB there.  He has a pic of him in 70's shorts, 70's long feathered hair, and a torn t-shirt showing the abs.  The life-journey to go from that photo to Senator SweaterVest is really amazing.

As they say, pic or it didn't happen.

Send me a message and I'll give you his contact info.  It's a good pic.  Don't know if he'll be interested in making it public.

2004 edition of the game doesn't get played enough (or ever).  The offense spent most of the season lost in the wilderness and then just lit it up for the final game of the year, which gave us a preview of the 2005 and 2006 seasons.  Coming out party for the Troy Smith to Anthony Gonzalez connection, the beginning of Troy Smith just owning Michigan and a Ted Ginn Jr punt return for a touchdown.

Ginn (7) and Gonzalez (11).  The 7/11 store always open!

Seeing the scUM players quickly surround Dontre on that kickoff return and antagonize him still pisses me off. Thank The Lord we won that day.

Go Bucks

Agreed. Especially when a starting offensive lineman got the boot early in the game. Just one more hill to climb.

Enjoying The Game from 2002 right now before we went onto beat Miami, and it is glorious.  Tress had more dark hair then. LOL
