I was an usher at the Shoe from 1997 to 2009. When I retired I moved to Allen, Texas (5A football state champs the last two years in a row - ask D. Wilson, M. Mitchell and the future soon to be one of the best linemen to put on tOSU uniform, Mr. Knox about Allen, Texas football). Love the Buckeyes and follow them throughout the year. Shout out to all my friends in section 23A - 25A Radar is alive and well.

My thoughts are two fold.  1) we've got Urban Meyer.  I know we've had good coaching before but be honest, did you ever feel comfortable with Coach Tressel.  Personally I don't like to hold on for the win.  2) we've got Urban Meyer.  He loves offense and good defense. He loves to smash and trash his opponents.  His brand of football is fun to watch.  Just enjoy.  The Grind = 80 plays offense and Silver Bullets flying everywhere.

For coach Johnson, three or four are better than two.  Johnson likes to move his linemen in and out.  That means fresh legs and everyone is better.  Check the defensive linemen out when they come out of the game, they check with the coach and talk to their team mates on how to beat their opponents.

I missed it by playing golf in 100 ° weather in Texas.  Best part was beating an Alabama fan.  Would have been more fun knowing what was going on. And yes I was wearing my BUCKEYE gear.

Great article again Remy.  I like the photo.  Two perfect blocks on the play.  Where did you find the photos?  I'm looking for some photos of my cousin Leo Nomellini, who played for Minnesota during the late 40's.  Thanks.

Thanks Don Scott for your service and example.  I played baseball at Don Scott Field in Canton, Ohio.  I'm not sure but I think it's part of the track area now at the McKinley H. S. That was in the mid sixties..... centerfield.

Thanks Remy I really enjoy the articles.  On Parker's points in the box, the totals you have are: 5 for MVP, 8 for 2 time All- American, 4 for first round draft choice, and 6 for All Big Ten.  Totals  5+8+6+4=23 plus three times lettered .75.  Grand total 23.75 points.

I enjoy the articles Remy.  I have a question on point totals.  Shouldn't it be 23.75 or higher.  He won the Outland Trophy doesn't that count for anything.  If you thought Pace was something this guy made him look like a scout.  He played with an attitude.

That's a great shot!  Yes it's 25AA and I saw every game that year from my 23-25 A-AA section as an usher.

They would all look good in scarlet and gray.  I want guys who want to be here.  With our coaching staff each one has an opportunity to play and play at the next level.  The 2015 Buckeyes have a chance to be one of the greatest teams ever to play college football.  Many will leave early to play pro ball opening up spots to play sooner than later.  Tuff decisions for young men to make.  I wish them all good luck where ever they end up.
