The Sugar Bowl that apparently didn't happen against Arkansas... I was at that game. It was all you could ask of Tressel...Exciting, yet frustrating and somehow, just somehow, you knew he'd find a way to have the team persevere. Of course, since it never really happened... ;-)
I was at the Missouri game on this date in '98.... Fond memories as, though I had been to many a Buckeye road game, it was my first of now many games inside the Shoe...
I can't WAIT to see how they spin this....!!!!!!
Get the win and get the hell outta dodge...
He doesn't pick against the Buckeyes. He roots against the Buckeyes and it manifests itself into the form of some kind of 3rd rate prediction. Let him do his thing; he's got to eat, too. He will just continue to be the equivalent of dead to me....!
I may just have to stop reading your touching pieces once and for all, Ramzy... That said, I wish I had your writing skills. Bravo as always....
Tim Spencer, the guy who played the lieutenant in NYPD Blue, Ron Perlman, Peter Graves, Ricky Schroeder, Kareem Abdul-Jabaar SIDEBAR: he was not flying the plane; he was waiting at baggage claim with some tiny, buxom blond who was carrying two NBA sized basketballs inside her shirt and my dad, ever the discretion specialist yelled out within earshot "Hey, there's Wilt Chamberlain!" But I digress...
I'm sure there are others but, with a list as great as this, why try to remember the others?!?! ;)
Agreed... If any of us were in his situation (yeah, right) I imagine we would all do our due diligence and explore all the options available...
If I could think of any, I would definitely write volumes....!!
No talent to speak of...
Sadly, Chuck E Cheese in my neck of the woods has been a Gangsta's Paradise for over 25 years and nobody of anything close to a reputable upbringing would come within a mile of the place. Fights are an every weekend occurrence and they stopped serving alcohol years ago (didn't help). I'm pretty sure the big singing rat wears a bulletproof vest, too. Anyways, point is, this is not shocking to me at all...
Spoiler Alert... Don't let all the turnovers in the NC Game (should they make it that far) get you down...
Are my eyes deceiving me? How did Cop Rock not make this list...!!?!?!??!
I think "The Frozen Embryos" may be the greatest band name ever, fictional or otherwise...
I didn't even need to click on the link to know that Sports Night would be a big winner on this thread. The cancellation of that show was a freakin tragedy...
Sat at a park picnic bench across from Tom Selleck at a Children's Hospital function in Los Angeles back in 2004. He was very unassuming, didn't really say word. Ate his hamburger. My wife and I left him alone. And then we finished our lunch, got up, and left... I'm sure Tom was kicking himself for not building up the courage to start a conversation with me...
I've lived on the west coast the majority of my life, so the games I've attended are limited. Still, I've been to a few memorable ones... They are as follows:
9/79 vs. UCLA at the LA Coliseum when UCLA and USC both played there.
1/80 vs USC at the Rose Bowl
12/82 vs BYU at the Holiday Bowl
9/89 vs USC at the LA Coliseum (hot miserable day)
12/93 vs BYU at the Holiday Bowl
9/94 at University of Washington (I'll never understand why Cooper chose to go for it on 4th down in field goal territory when down by 10 points...Put the easy points on the board. Of course, they failed to convert on 4th down and sealed the deal for UW).
1/97 vs ASU at the Rose Bowl (a classic)
9/98 vs Mizzou at the Shoe (my first time inside the hallowed grounds)
11/00 vs. Michigan State at the Shoe
9/8/01 vs. Akron (Tress' first game and 3 days before 911)
9/22/01 vs. UCLA at the Rose Bowl (blazing hot painful game and first game after 911)
11/01 vs. Illinois at the Shoe (Bellisari # .08 arrested for DUI day before the game)
10/02 vs SJSU at the Shoe (SJSU is my alma mater but I rooted for their dismantling that day and was not disappointed).
1/03 vs. Miami (National Championship game...'nuff said).
9/06 vs. Texas in Austin (some of the nicest fans ever...)
1/09 vs. Texas at the Fiesta Bowl (heartbreaking loss)
1/11 vs. Arkansas at Sugar Bowl (Tat V and Tress' last game...Thanks Coach)
9/11 vs. Akron at the Shoe (The first game of the legendary Fickell era and my son's first Ohio State game. Damn, was it hot that day...)
9/13 vs. Cal up in Berkeley (Buckeye Nation west)
9/14 vs. Navy in Baltimore (with my son)
....So that's an even 20.... GO BUCKS
Rookie move there, Eddie Jordan. Don't ever, EVER, compare a fine Buckeye athlete to any clowns from ttun. Is there a greater insult??
Coach Drayton better be apologizing to young Dexter pretty quickly...!!
Is this the same guy that had a deal in place to be head coach of ttun back in 2011 and then pulled a fast one and went to the NFL instead??!! just curious...
I'm going to have to respectfully disagree, as I believe I am the next Urban Meyer.
It's the sad reality of high profile athletes living in the twitter age. I'm sure most of them are thick skinned enough to shrug it off for the chance to excel at any number of great schools/programs. I know I'd find a way to deal with it if I had world class, God given athleticism... Sadly, I don't. So here I sit, pontificating about it....
Didn't they flip a Guy from Central m%&%^an....??
THAT'S HUGE AND AMAIZING NEWS FOR THAT SCHOOL UP NORTH!!!!
Hell, with Zeke in the backfield and the way the slobs finished the season, we could have Cam Johnston out there giving him the ball every play and the offense will average over 4 yards per down!
