Choices OSU's greatest tradition Just there for the party before I don't really understand it Not a true OSU tradition Vote Comments Show All Comments cronimi 22 Nov 2011, 9:20 am With all due respect to those voting "OSU's greatest tradition", for a school and program that has existed for more than 100 years, I don't think a 'tradition' that is barely 20 years old is or could be the greatest. Greater than the skull sessions? Than Script Ohio? Than Hang On Sloopy? I don't think so. The voting seems to be following the "newer = better" philosophy. (For point of reference: I was a sophomore when the Mirror Lake jump was started. During my years, Kegs 'n' Eggs was a much bigger Michigan Week tradition. RIP Papa Joe's.) chitown buckeye 22 Nov 2011, 9:26 am Agreed! Getting drunk at Sloopys then heading to Cluck U for a late night snack! Wait that was a tradition every weekend... "I'm having a heart attack!" sloopy88 22 Nov 2011, 9:27 am I agree, but I think the options are a bit loaded. Either it's the greatest tradition or, at best, it's an excuse for a party by these standards. cronimi 22 Nov 2011, 9:35 am You're right, Sloopy. There isn't a good option if you're not voting "greatest". flipbuckeye 22 Nov 2011, 9:51 am Yeah... no middle ground? Meh. Buckeye in Illi... 22 Nov 2011, 10:31 am I voted "greatest". But it's the only good option available in this poll. Hang on Sloopy, TBDBITHL, Script Ohio, etc. are definitely greater traditions. Mirror Lake jump is still a good/great tradition. Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours. "We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!" Seth4Bucks 22 Nov 2011, 10:37 am I voted party because I don't feel it's the greatest and there's no middle ground as others have pointed out. Nik 22 Nov 2011, 10:45 am voted greatest because of the lack of middle ground Bucksfan 22 Nov 2011, 1:02 pm +1 jack 22 Nov 2011, 11:25 am I voted not a tradition. I was there for kegs 'n' eggs and though I wouldn't dare do that now at my age, it makes much more sense than the mirror lake jump, which I think has its actual roots from University of Central Florida and their big water pond. So at best it's a copy, not an OSU tradition PortlyOSUMan 23 Nov 2011, 5:12 am Wrong. UCF's spirit splash started in 1995. It has it's roots in hating michigan.

SouthBayBuckeye 22 Nov 2011, 11:43 am back when i was your age it was thursday. and daggumit, we liked it. Banned from ATO since June 3rd 2PMish PST Scott 22 Nov 2011, 11:51 am It's great, but not the greatest (I voted greatest as the only affirmative option). One of the most prominent memories I have from freshman year.
