Which Ohio State "pick six(es)" against Penn State do you cherish the most?

I can't vote fore 2010 since it never happened for either team. lol

I'll go with '07 just because that was the year I started to despise Penn State fans.

I took back my kids Christmas presents once I heard if never happened.  They told me they understood why I was doing it, but I'm not so sure they really did.

FitzBuck is clearly the winner.  Not even close.

2002 Chris Gamble's first start at DB, (& first two way start) with a 40 yard 3rd qtr pick six to win the Game 13-7.  Gamble also made a TD/(game) saving tackle after a Craig Krenzel redzone fumble that PSU returned across the 50 in the first half. 

ONE Not Done!

02 Gamble for sure, no question.  That was probably the loudest I've heard the Shoe.  That interception won the game and preserved our title hopes, that alone should set it apart.  We scratched and clawed our way into the top 5.  Gamble's serpentine pick six was when I really started to believe this was a team of destiny...and that also was the second game in a stretch where 6 of our last 7 were absolute heart attack games.  If we didnt have the balls we had and luck was against us we sould of easily had 7 losses that year.  But we had 0 and went 14-0 and WON. THE. WHOLE. DAMN. THING!!!

Ah, the game of 2002 that has Joe Ped still wailing from his spit in Hell for revenge on those men of zebradom. What wonderful memories. That's what I remember most. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Gamble 2002.  In my mind it can't possibly be anyone else, as that pick 6 allowed us the chance to play for, and win, the National Championship.   
And Tyler Everett had a pick 6?  Like, ever?  Wow.
In all seriousness, how is it possible we ALWAYS seem to get one against PSU?  8 of them in the last 11 years?   That is amazing, truly.

Gamble, Baby, Gamble!!!
I was in C deck for that one. My girlfriend and I bought scalped tickets and nobody knew we were at the game. After that play, about 15 people tried to call us (This was an era when you called people on their phones... How bizarre).

I chose Shazier last year simply because I remember getting a lot of "Over Rated" talk from my Penn State buddies and any time you go into happy valley and silence a crowd like that is amazing...although all the other ones are great too! Hard to pick!

They all were great, but Gamble's pick really led to greatness.

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

Wish I would've watched this before i voted!
also, what'd the difference between the uni we wear now and the ones from 06' and '10?

By far my favorite was Chris Gamble 2002.  That was a great pick six and sealed the game up. I jumped up out of my seat just about as high as I did for Holy Buckeye...but not quite as high;-)

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

I like them all, but Gamble's pick six was such a huge play in a close game.
My top three would be:
1. Gamble ('02)
2. Jenkins ('06)
3. RDS (last season)

Have to go with the Gamble pick 6. We had student tix that season in the C deck, and once he ran that back, pandemonium ensued! That game was the loudest event i had personally witnessed, until a couple weeks later when we defeated TSUN. I remember that season like it was yesterday, such great memories!

While all of them where great plays, Gambles was one sick ass play. It broke PSUs back and we needed it badly b/c our O was seriously dragging its feet the whole game (other than the 1st drive of the game with Mo. Clarett)  One of the greatest plays in the great history of Ohio State FB. That pick 6 will always be talked about , for the next 100 yrs.+  It will always be remembered. Always  

Buckeye Dynasty starts in 2014 baby !!!!!! GO BUCKS !!!!!!!! O - H - I - O

Can it be anything other than Gamble in 02? One of many crucial saves during that magical season. Horrible weather, offenses in a stalemate, and Gamble delivers a masterful return for the game winner.

Sometimes I forget the college aged kids now probably don't remember much of that season

That season really got me started as a Buckeye fanatic. I had watched some of the games down the stretch in 2001 but 2002 I watched from start to finish. I was actually there for the Gamble pick six. Probably my greatest moment in the Shoe ever.

1. Gamble (2002) Game Changer and dat crowd noise
2. Jenkins and Smith. Nail in the coffin and I enjoyed Jenkins goaline spike

I picked Shazier last year because its still so fresh in my mind. The big sack, then the pick 6 all in the same series was great.

Gamble in 2002 was part of the puzzle that let OSU reach the NCG.  

In old Ohio there's a team that's known throughout the land...

PSU= Pick Six University!!!!  Lets get another this year!!  GO BUCKS!!!

They're all fantastic and Gamble's probably was more reflective of a season, but I voted for 2006 as I was over at HineyGate with a buddy of mine and when Smith picked that pass and returned it for a TD, I picked him up in excitement...but as I grabbing him to pick him up, I sort of donkey punched a girl in front him by accident. I felt awful but was elated at the same time. So while I don't necessarily cherish it, it's far more memorable for me. She got a few beers out of it from me, so she has that at least.

If you jiggle your monitor, does that make a jiggly gif?

11w had a de-motivational poster on here after the 2010 game that said ,"Too much moxie" or something to that effect. That was the one I voted for.

2010 but my vote is a little biased. It was my fathers first game and I played football and baseball against Torrence in high school.

That's all that needs to be said.

I was there for Jenkins and Smith in 2006.  But I voted for Gamble because the season hung in the balance for that one.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

They were all great in their own way (I loved see the comeuppance of "Moxie"), but I had to vote Gamble. In part because it was the only one of these games I attended in person, but also because of how much it was necessary. The game was a complete war where neither team could do anything on offense. Seeing the Buckeye D respond to the challenge again and again in a situation where one misstep would have cost us the game was stirring.

The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.

Voted for Gamble... BUT Jenkins and Smith made a rainy day beautiful as we covered the spread!

Gamble in 2002.  No doubter.  One of the biggest plays of the 2002 season.  That crowd, the atmosphere at that game and when that play happened...unreal. 

Class of 2010.

That 2006 pick six & pick six part duex won me some money. The Buckeyes won ATS and stayed under the over/under. Out R Inn saw most of those profits...

Deadly Nuts's picture

2010 because some PSU fans actually thought they had a chance after halftime.

I was in school in 2002. That was a special year. There were many special plays. That Chris Gamble pick six was one of those special plays. To this day, after seeing many exciting events at the Horseshoe over the years, I still have not heard a roar of the crowd as when Chris Gamble went into the end zone.

Anyone remember after Antonio Smith's pick6, Joepa Running to the shitter?

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.

BassDropper's picture

Over 2200 votes cast and only 11 for Tyler Everett. This was actually one of the Pick 6's I forgot about ironically.
