Thanks for sharing, Chris. My Dad passed away in April of 2002, when I was 14 years old. That 2002 team really helped me get through that time in my life. I never really appreciated it back then. Now that I am older and hopefully wiser, I understand the everlasting impact that the 2002 team had. When the clock struck zeroes last Monday, I felt a great deal of joy, but it was a much different feeling than 12 years ago. I know I will appreciate this one much more!
No question this defense is filled with talent. I like their growth as a unit, and hopefully they're close to righting the ship.
But man is it fun to watch an OSU offense impose it's will upon a good opponent. Reminds me of the 2006 Fiesta Bowl. That was fun!!
New Sagarin ratings have OSU at 10, with teams like LSU, Baylor, UCLA and Mizzou ahead of them. Probably moot though because this could be the computer that get thrown out for OSU.
Same here. And everyday since I am thankful I didn't sell those tix.
Ohio State - 60
Cal - 16
Fickell motivated by criticism...what motivates Bollman? Beef brisket?
I agree as well, I think that we will be very, very lucky to pay in ANY bowl game this year (aside from NCAA decisions).
A chimp with a six-sided die labeled SCREEN, READ OPTION, PLAY ACTION, PASS, RUN, and HAIL MARY would have a more successful offensive gameplan than Bollman has. I understand that Miller struggles at times (he's a freshman) and the o-line gave nobody a chance, but you have to at least try to adapt the gameplan to our (very few) offensive strengths. So sick of this Bollman offense...
