That shows the class of these teams it was humbling to see.

Classy is almost an understatement. So much respect between these two schools. Gave me goosebumps.

As an Ohio native and Navy vet I was very proud to see such great sportsmanship today.

College football at its finest.

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

As tough/annoying of a game as it was, it's always great playing one of the service academies to see everyone come together.

I got chills love to see the boys do that. I'm 28 so I can't use young men term lol. I loved seeing this though.

Is it me, or was there a notable dearth of bullshit bravado/taunting/gamesmanship to this whole game? I have to figure that the Buckeye staff coached the kids to downplay the extracurricular stuff and Navy just does that, 'cause, well, they're Navy.

Whatever, if this is what it can look like, sign me up to watch.

That was Larry Johnson's first Carmen Ohio, and it showed. The big man barely got the OHIO in at the end there

Classy was the exact term that was being uttered by fans in the stadium (Navy & TOSU) as this was taking place. It was great to see.

This is about the classiest thing I've ever seen on a football field. The rest of the NCAA should take notes.

Thanks should also go to CBSSnet for sticking around and showing it to the country, instead of switching to a scoreboard show. I am glad I stayed on the program to see it instead of switching channels to another game.

I think a lot of this respect stuff stems from Jim Tressel.  No matter how much the media wants to tarnish his name, he was a class act and the traditions he started are awesome.

That is so right. I love Jim Tressel and the traditions that he brought to OSU and still remain. I hope these continue in victory and defeat. Show pride in your school, fans, and team. The singing of Carmen Ohio means as much to me as the game.

This is one of the prime reasons that I love scheduling Navy... Defending that triple option and fretting over cutblocking are the reasons I hate scheduling Navy... Fortunately the pros outweigh the cons more often than not.

As someone said yesterday, let's trade Rutgers for Navy as members of the Big Ten...

Just put them in the West, please! I'd hate to think about playing these guys every year! As someone mentioned on another thread, in the first half I was wishing we had opened with a cupcake (yeah, Sparty & scUM!); by the end of the game, I was glad we had played a tough, disciplined opponent that made us work hard for the "W".

Brought a tear to my eye. My dad is a retired emeritus professor at OSU as well as a retired captain (USNR). This was a tough game for our family, and I agree with Urban...glad it's over.

Very late to this thread, but this is one great example why College Football is so much better than the NFL. Football is a tough, ultra-competitive sport, and I know it is hard to always find any love for the opponent, but this example of sportsmanship should be mandatory viewing at all collegiate orientations. 

Well done gentlemen, well done.

Thank the Maker that I was born in Ohio, cradle of coaches, US Presidents, confederate-stomping Generals, and home of The Ohio State University Football Buckeyes!
