Add a bunch more Ohio State fans-for-life in Arizona. Is it any wonder every Bowl game the Buckeyes play in becomes a Home game?
The Samuel TD run was the most important play for obvious reasons. But the most amazing play was Noah Brown's grab in Norman, Oklahoma. I was about 30 yards away and it was astounding -- it tore a hole in the Sooners' soul.
Anyone else remember Bo using this exact language after the Big Ten sent OSU to the Rose Bowl in lieu of his scUM clan? It's why Harbaugh used "bitterly disappointed". Exactly what Bo said and everyone north of Toledo knows it. Harbaugh's boys had their dreams crushed Saturday, so their coach wrapped himself in Bo Schembechler.
In his wildest Brooklyn dreams, Curtis Samuel could never have imagined the eruption he'd cause with that run. Congratulations, young man, for a football play you'll remember for the rest of your life. You've made millions of people deliriously happy!
The more I think about this, the madder I get. Friday night high school football is important in Ohio. Messing with it like this turns my stomach. -- all so a filthy rich TV network can make a little more money. First, Saturday afternoon alcohol sales -- as if football's no fun without day drinking -- and now encroachment on a sacred Ohio tradition. The game is never ruined by the coaches or the players -- it's always by the TV money.
Southern football coaches can really be a-holes. Must be something in the moonshine.
We sure don't look like an offense "that makes you defend the entire width of the field", that gets the ball "to playmakers in space", with "speed all over the field". We used to, but we don't anymore.
Just imagine how those kids feel when they hear that. Imagine they'd go through brick walls for him.
Wish Malik Hooker had shown up. Would have liked to see his game.
Hoosier Daddy, Indiana?
It's refreshing reading Jack's words here, knowing they weren't written by some PR advisor but came straight from the heart of the Golden Bear. Well said, Jack, as always.
You could write this same article highlighting the disparity between Oklahoma and Houston. Just sayin'...
Lots of us were weaned on 3.2 beer at the age of 18 back in Ohio's Golden Days, youngster. It works just fine.
Now. Say my name.
Gave me chills hearing Mike's Mom scream with joy. It's what this thing is all about -- do well for yourself, for your team mates, for your school, but mostly, for Mom and Dad to see on Saturdays. Alford's next call was to Zeke to tell him, because the Ohio State football team is a family, forever.
Terrelle Pryor 2.0 He, and we, would be better off if he moved on. When you recruit huge numbers of star players, a certain percentage end up like Johnny Manziel, Terrelle Pryor and Torrance Gibson. Should be a lesson to all the fathers reading this that disciplining a kid is an act of love. Constant pampering creates miscreants.
It must be amazing to be so young, so successful, so respected by your peers and so beloved by your fans. Kyle is an inspiration to all of us in 'Buckeye Nation'.
Who practices football at the Greenbrier?? Not sure Woody would have approved.
Woody Hayes lifetime stat: 10 ties
Urban Meyer lifetime stat: 0 ties
Says a lot for those of us who suffered through Woody's ties. Urban plays an attacking style, with a little gambling. Woody played to avoid disastrous plays, to rarely if ever make mistakes. I loved Woody, but I prefer UFM.
That block he threw at the 0:12 mark was Zekesque. That kid's grandfather could feel that hit.
Austin Mack showing off those Aaron Craft rosey cheeks.
No one bothers to argue with me any more about who runs the best football program in America. I won't abide it. The answer is too obvious.
Everyone here who attended a Home game for the 1954 National Champs, raise your hand.
Yo! I'm here.
Before anyone shouts, "B.S."...I was five, attended with my Dad and slept at his feet during most of the second half. [That's why I don't remember seeing the Cassady pick-Six, but I certainly heard it.]
The King led this historic 7-game series in: Points scored; Rebounds; Assists; Blocks; and Steals. That is remarkable. If Superman suited up and played for Golden State, he couldn't have done better.
Urban has his ship set to sail for the next 5 seasons. It's unbelievable. Buy your shades now -- you'll need 'em.
