That. is. awesome.
When Zeke broke through the line, I literally sucked in my breath and held it for the the entire 85 yard run. I then looked at the score...looked at the time remaining...and went crazy because I knew King Bama just got curb-stomped.
Make no mistake...Zeke's run vs. that Bama/SEC defense (symbolically) ushered in a new era for Ohio State.
But...but...Jerry Rice was fast as hell in Tecmo Bowl!
(Albeit not Bo Jackson fast in Tecmo Bowl).
11 games. All in the Horseshoe. I was present for the 1998 Michigan State game. I still can't believe how quiet the Shoe got after the final play/interception. Never felt so dejected (as opposed to upset/angry) after a game in my life.
I am still convinced that the 1998 Ohio State team was the best in the nation. Just not that day, unfortunately.
[Side note: I think that 1998 MSU game may very well be the reason that the win over Alabama/Saban in this year's Sugar Bowl was even sweeter for me personally]
Buckbat, I think the comments made by 11W readers above were in response to the 'original' article.
I read the linked article yesterday and there was no "Update" by the Reddit user (see middle of page)...which tells a second/alternate side of the story.
DJ, please don't be too hard on yourself. While I don't believe it was eighth grade, I did think the war between the US states was the 'Silver War' for the longest time.
Yeah, HBO canceled this great show because it was so expensive to produce. I read somewhere that it cost more to make an episode of Rome than an episode of Game of Thrones.
If Urban thinks it's in OSU's best interest to hire a damn 4 year old, who are you to criticize?!?! I don't care if he was 3 year old. In Urban we trust!
I think you are giving too much credit to Griese as to having a brain.
A sincere thank you for all of your hard work and efforts, Birm. Hope you get some well deserved rest today.
I honestly would have laughed even if it was the other way around. Well done, Brutus!
Carmen Ohio at the end was a nice touch.
So the question is...did the Mrs. *finish* The Hurry Up for your son or read some crap like, say, The Three Little Pigs. If the former, you got yourself a keeper!
St. Aquinas HS pipeline? Yes, please.
Whatever. Never heard of those guys!
I wonder if we will ever really find out who made the call. I saw/heard Pete Carroll admit to making the play call during the postgame interview. However, Bevell was explicitly quoted as "Yes, I made the call" in a USAToday article I read this morning. I guess it doesn't matter.
Even this play call by Michigan made sense. The skunkweasels only got one crack at it from the 2. In contrast, the Seahawks had the best RB in the country with at least 2 tries from the 1/2 yard line.
If I were to earn a degree from an SEC school, Vandy would definitely be my choice. Best of luck to him!
How about 'Chicken Dinner' because he is a Winner!
Fact of the matter is that he will have more of an opportunity to play QB (sooner than later) at Auburn than Ohio State (who is loaded at the position for the foreseeable future). Sometimes, playing time is king. I know it would be for me if I was talented as Gibson and dreamed to play QB in college and the NFL (albeit sacrificing the educational/degree premium at OSU). While I don't think he could do as good of a job as Urban, Malzhan is not a bad second choice to play for as an athletic, dual threat QB. Either way, Ohio State wins because we only want players that have a desire to be here. Good luck to the young man regardless.
Can't say I've heard it that many times, but I know my daughter must have. I find it quite funny hearing a 3 year old sing about "a kingdom of isolation" and "frozen fractals". Do you even know what that means?
I think this just shows the true strength of character Curtis has. With expectations as high as they were, you know the journey has not been an easy one for Curtis. Glad to see he stuck it out and earned the ultimate prize with his brothers-in-arms!
Hahaha, the cute little guy does not seemed impressed at all.

Someone very, very good at football.
