Great question. I wasn't even a college football fan in 1989. Sure I "rooted" for the bucks but only because they were the local team. I didn't know anything about them.
I mentioned this in another thread, but I hope he has one more ace up his sleeve and can get Oklahoma and Texas on board. Perhaps get them to sign a contract to move once the GOR expires or negotiate a buyout of the GOR is something like that is possible. It would balance out the conference and OSU would only have to play them every couple of years and perhaps in the B1G conference championship.
No. I think Nebby is just getting their full share for this year.
What a thug
Poach OU and Texas, please!
I agree. I am glad that others are doing it, but sitting in that section was terrible.
I had to work and missed the spring game. I had to work and missed buying alumni tickets. I had to work and missed Friday Night Lights. I hate work. It makes me a worse fan.
Oh yeah, and I hate quick cals, too.
RIP. Very sad.
Decommitting from UCLA, . . . . must be because he heard they were going to the Big 12 . . . . .
My buddy was there as well. I was supposed to go, but got stuck late at the office. He said that at least early on, Clark made something like 7-8 of his first 10 throws and Martell made like 2-3 of 10. Though as already mentioned, the WR play a huge role in that.
That would fit. I my experience most Michigan fans are moutards.
Here's a thought on something to replace it with. Have our team face the south stands and have some sort of clap/shouting thing and have a handful of players be chosen each game to run and jump up into the 1st couple of rows where the crowd/band sits. It could be some thing that players could look forward to being selected for and used as a reward for accolades from the previous game or having a good week of practice.
This is just off the cuff and I haven't thought it all the way through. It sounds like a good idea until someone breaks an ankle performing this stunt (ala Teddy Ginn).
The Hurry Up is dead! Long Live the Hurry Up!
We'll take you, even though you're a Fo-troit native. All kidding aside, glad to have some more NW Ohio blood over here. My dad was an engineer at one of the big plants in Fostoria.
Don't bring a Jigglypuff to a fist fight.
I still contend, spend your first pick on the best Oline available the next 3 years and then get yourself a franchise QB. That experiment couldn't go any worse than what we've been dealing with since 1999 and at least then we could find solace the fact that there is a plan of some kind.
Seriously. . . . And for your offensive line . . . . . . a wet paper bag!!!!!!!!

I totally forgot about that. It was like the Loch Ness Monster of formations. Everyone looked for it, but no one saw it.
It probably was 97 or 98. We either won our conference or were runner up depending on the year. They now let more teams in the playoffs but my high school always seemed to be 5th in the rankings and just miss. Anywho, I think the coaches were friends and that is why the event took place. We never did it before or afterwards in my 4 years walking the halls. And if your loyalty to your home turf is what I think it is, your answer will probably be that they would have killed us.
My only experience with any Marion football schools was when my team, Tiffin Columbian, went down to Marion Harding to have a co-practice. Only time we ever did anything like that. It really was only for the QBs and WRs to test their mettle against the other teams DBs, but I was brought along as a center to snap the ball. I don't remember much about the other team, but then again, at that stage you are in the "my team could kill these guys" phase and you don't go looking to make friends.
For sure. It's not everyday that someone who comes to OSU has an ax to grind against somebody else.
