Very cool. I am a 5th generation NP resident! NPHS class of 2007
I just put on my Cie Grant jersey and got on my phone to check 11w and see this. What a great little bit of history. Can't wait to see Cie tonight at the Buckeye Bash in Dallas. He is a great representation of my hometown and my University.
Snoo, are you from the area? I went to New Phila High School too.
Way more buckeye fans so far. The Oregon fans I have encountered are nice and they expect the game crowd to be about 65 to 70% Osu fans. Dallas is doing a wonderful job of hosting. The whole town is alive. Really cool.
I agree totally. After the Sugar Bowl and before I saw the stat lines, I made a comment on here that I thought Curtis had his best game of the season. He was where he was supposed to be when he was supposed to be there nearly every time. He deserved more snaps than Kwon in the Sugar Bowl and he got them.
Then I read somewhere that Curtis led the team in tackles and it all made perfect sense. Bravo young man. Coming up big when we really needed you. Just keep grinding.
I am sick of hearing about SEC football and SEC dominance. After our win they were saying that we have an SEC football team in Columbus. NOOOOO. We have URBAN MEYER football and dominance in Columbus.
He is the man that started the SEC streak and introduced his type of football to the SEC. Those teams adapted his type of football to their teams and I think and hope that is what we will see in the B1G. Thank you Urban.
Anyone know which jersey we will wear for the national championship game? Please tell me we can wear the Scarlet - it looks so sexy.
I don't know what the stat lines looked like but is it fair to say that Curtis Grant played his best game all season? He was everywhere he needed to be. I think, for the first time this year, he out played Raekwon - and that is tough to do. The Chef was Electric all season.
Have had flight, hotel, and game tickets bought for almost 2 weeks but didn't want to jinx it by talking about it. THE TIME IS NOW! See you all there and Go Bucks.
Comparing scores, it looks as if Wisconsin would give Kent State a run for their money.
Just leaving Dayton to head to the party. See you all there and Go Bucks!
I love this play. I always remember Cie as being a great person as well as a great player. He went to my high school and was actually my coach at high school football camp where, in the finals, we beat his brother Greg's team. Also in high school he was great friends with a boy who had learning disabilities - I actually think OSU did a game day program article about their friendship.
Cie was a hell of a football and track athlete in high school and was recently inducted into the New Philadelphia High School Sports Hall of Fame. One last interesting fact though, he needed something minuscule, like 6 yards rushing, in his final game to be the all time leader in rushing yards in our high school's history and Dover just stifled him and the entire team.
Great guy and athlete and he will always be remembered for that play on Dorsey in the NCG.
Being from New Phila, I can confirm that Coshocton is a real place - and yes it is a small hick town ha.
It is probably under an overhang AND behind a support pole. I would find another seat, that one will not be enjoyable.
BassDropper, you were noticeably absent from the threads last night. I checked the VOL fan sites to see if you were up to your old tricks and saw nothing. What gives? Last night was prime for trollin some rednecks.
Ant timetable on an offer for CJ Conrad if it is coming?
Good Luck. My study is about finished at this point as well.
Baltimore isn't that far away. Take the easy way out and join us at the game.
Anyone have an update on a code for tickets? I purchased tickets last year and still have not heard anything.
I'm in along with 4 friends under the team name "Team Too's"
Cornell is up. Wait for it...
