Brandon most likely won't be around to make that decision.
Those were 2 great Buckeye teams but I'll still go with the '69 team as the greatest to not win the National Championship.
I was over 50 the last time the current Miller played. Now that's a sobering thought.

Brady Hoke ate my Dingo!
IMHO, the first 2 were simply that Bell and Apple got beat while the 3rd one was more scheme. It seemed to me Grant was expecting safety help on that one, so maybe it was a miscommunication. Though I have only watched the game once thus far and might see something different after watching it closer the next time.
I think UFM pulling the corners back had to do more with them simply getting beat than with the scheme. The DB's have the talent to play press man...they just didn't do it well on those plays.
I wonder how many times Hoke said "UH" while trying to answer that question.
Hubbard was moved back to defense from TE at the beginning of fall camp. So I'm not sure how much it had to do with Heuerman's health improving over the last few weeks. Meyer has repeatedly said that Jeff's foot (stress fracture) will only get better with long term rest, He will have problems with it all year but the question is how much of a problem it will be.
Thanks for the clarification M Man.
The way I remember it the late Gilda Radner (Mrs. Gene Wilder) would be on "Weekend Update". She would go on some rant about something, then Jane Curtin would correct her, then Radner would say "Never Mind". Was she playing Littela or Rosanna Dana? Because I remember it as Rosanne Rosanna Dana. But I am 51yrs. old and had a long history of drug abuse. So my memory might be a little "cloudy" :)
I will NEVER promise to stop yelling "YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!!" at the m#$$%^%n offense!
It's one of my favorite thing to do....besides they deserve it.
oh...that's not what you ment.....(Roseanne Roseanna Dana voice)....Never Mind...
Yes, they were over 50yrs. ago but remember for 34yrs. we claimed the '68 NC team as our best ever (though Woody said the '69 team was his best) despite some very good teams between '68 an '02.
I agree that no one respectable has said OSU would only win that many games but....
I live in North Louisiana and the day Braxton got hurt I was listening to the local sports radio station. On the afternoon radio show, where they have the local "sports experts" take over for 3 hours from ESPN radio between 3-6pm, they lit OSU up for the entire time I listened. They did not say that OSU would only win 3-4 games but the majority of the commentators and caller comments were that OSU would finish in the middle of the B1G's East division. Next they said OSU would finish in the middle of the pack in the SEC even with Braxton, and that OSU would finish in the middle of the pack, at best, in any year. (which they all agreed on) Then they said that OSU would still have a decent record only because OSU never leaves the state of Ohio in the non-conference. They mentioned that for the last 7yrs. the local morning show (which I personally have not heard) they have called the OSU non-conference schedule the "see Ohio tour". The reason being that everyone either comes to Ohio to play OSU or OSU plays 2 Ohio schools, 1 usually an FCS school. They went on to state that none of them (there were 4 commentators on the show) could ever remember OSU beating a good team on the road. Then the 2 younger members of the "panel" stated they had never seen OSU beat any of the good teams, ever...that OSU always loses against good teams (at least the 2 older members said that OSU has "on occasion" beaten good teams). There was much open laughter by all involved while they said these things.
At that point after listening for approx. 45mins of the show (yes it went on at least that long) I shut it off. True story.
I don't know who the twitter poster was listening to, but I have no doubt he heard it.
Make of it what you will.
I doubt Michigan State fans consider 2013 their greatest season ever, since they won a consensus National Championship in 1952 as well as claiming 5 other NC's (though those are more than "iffy").
Damn TINMAN that's rough! I hope YOU will SOMEDAY recover completely. I'll have you (along with Braxton) in my prayers tonight. Scary story. And this is coming from a man who has had 6 back and 3 heart surgeries.
I was talking about the Females.....Duh.
I loved the article Ramzy. Thanks
Except you had one thing wrong: "You're going to blink and we'll be in 2015, freezing and WAITING FOR NEXT SEASON!"
Come 2015...I will be watching The Ohio State Buckeyes whip some ass in the college football semi-finals on Jan. 1st, 2015, then on Jan. 12th, 2015, Crushing whatever team is unlucky enough to face Our Mighty Bucks in the National Championship Game.
You would have gotten an up vote from me except for one thing I disagree with:
You said..."with bikinis".......I'm would prefer it WITHOUT BIKINIS!.......but maybe that's just me. ;)
Get better Kyle. Buckeye Nation is behind you.
Although the interview with Coach Meyer was hard to hear....THANKS for the vids!
2007: 7-6 Lost in Independence Bowl (adjusted to 2-6 per NCAA)....not sure why.
2008: 12-2 Lost in Sugar Bowl
Or about TBDBITL
"The Big Ten has various story lines that should not be, in any way, related to the SEC – at least, I hope."
Although on Espin....that might be impossible for them not to make it about the S$C.
People can say what they want about Tyrelle Pryor but he was 3-0 against TTUN.
Simply put: Orlando Pace is the best and most dominint college football player I have ever seen.
