I'm with ya. I've been a born-n-bred Buckeye for life. In 1968 I got to go to 4 home games (SMU, #1 Purdue, ranked MSU, and #4 scUM), and then to the Rose Bowl win over #2 USC (the first #1 versus #2 victory for our Buckeyes). I thought that I would never experience anything like that season, until now. Although this season I was never blinded by homerism so that I didn't see the weaknesses that this team had to overcome. They were never the indomitable and clear-cut cream of the crop as that '68 team was. But they were never the consistent underdog, cardiac wrecking team that the 2002 team was either. This team just continued to develop and got better and better to peak at the post-season. What an amazing and triumphant finish to such a challenging season.
At this point in my life, I doubt I will live long enough to experience the equivalent of those two experiences as a Buckeyes fan. You young guys: Breath it in. Appreciate what this accomplishment really is as you embrace the moment. There is sure to be heartbreak in the future, as well as triumphs. But, this sort of complete and total satisfaction only comes along a few times in life.
