Oh yeahhh?! Well, back in the early Autumn of '35, I telegrammed Tippy Dye, warning him against transferring to B1G bottom-feeder University of Chicago. Months later I received the reassuring response I'd been waiting for, while listening to Tippy & OSU ouster M*ch*g*n, yet again, via my one tube regenerative radio.

Cheery ho, fellas!

Heyoooo!

Great query, Gumtape...she's a 1st round cutie in my book, for sure.

And, she's legal. Bonus!!!

Back in high school, some of the boys & I from the football team, we'd get together and do a Top 50 Hottest Girls list. It wasn't quite like the prom drafts you hear about nowadays, but still a grand ole time. It's a good practice to help develop self-confidence for the young ladies out there. I highly recommend passing on this tradition to future generations.

Heyooooo...

hi guys, like stated before -- I like brunettes a lot. But, my real 'type' of girl (first & foremost) is: the hot type.

As for these two dollies, I'm going with the blondie on the right.

Cheers !

yeah, that's what I was wondering --- if Earle & OSU deferred for some reason. I think it may have been a windy forecast in the Cotton Bowl that day. Maybe a good Jeopardy answer some day. Pat O'Morrow was just a freshman I think, and he was wearing #34, but he later in his career he would switch to #6.

Side note: I actually met Texas A&M kicker Scott Slater in the Hamptons up in NY back in the Summer of 2003 and asked him about this. He was working for Morgan Stanley at the time. But, not to my surprise, he did not remember the fact that he kicked off in each half.

Thanks Johnny.

ahhh yes, the 1987 Cotton Bowl between OSU & TAMU.

I remember watching that game as a young boy and for some reason, which I will never forget, Ohio State kicked the ball off at the beginning of the 1st half & at the beginning of the 2nd half!

I thought each team, by rule, had to kick off at the beginning of the game and the 2nd half, and vice versa for the other team. Whichever team wins the coin toss elects to receive the kick in either half, not both.

So Ohio State kicker Pat O'Morrow kicked off at the beginning of the 1st half & 2nd half, while Texas A&M kicker Scott Slater did not kick off at the beginning of either half. I've never seen that before.

love the Jack Tatum jersey, reminds me of this gem I have on my mantle. A game-worn jersey by Jack from the '68 season...

added this somewhere else already, but I should put it here, too.

Football:

@ Georgia (at night, between The Hedges)

@ LSU (at night, Death Valley)

vs. Texas (need to make amends for that '05 game we should have never lost)

vs. Notre Dame ("There will be beetjuice on the field...and it won't be mine." - Urban to Brian Kelly)

 

Basketball:

@ Kentucky (annoying SEC school that needs brought down to Earth; ton of talent on the floor = fun to watch)

@ Louisville (intense defense & coaching matchup)

vs. Wichita State (payback/Bruce Pearl disciples)

vs. Cincinnati (they just talk to too much for having accomplished so little, little bros)

@ Duke (want another shot at them, and the venue is loco)

 

I think scheduling tougher nonconference games is a great idea. I know the B1G is tough, but look at MSU's non-conf. schedule every year...it's brutal. That probably correlates to their success in the Tournament.
