I was a boy scout usher at that game. We had moved to Mo-town that summer and the troop I joined got to usher the game. I was near the MSU students (they weren't jerks) and saw OSU fans literally crying when they left the stadium.
So, SO many to put in front of Smith. You WERE kidding right?
They won at TTUN for my literal birthday! :-D Gotta love our Bucks!
How can people NOT feel "pain" from historic disappointments? OSU football was huge WAY before your lifetime. If you don't care about the tradition and bleed it, you're just a band wagoneer. :-)
I want back the 1969 Meatchicken Loss. We and Woody might have done a 3-peat. How cool would that have been?
Hey BucksHave7, what loss compares to THAT one (2007 Fiesta, Biakabatuka game, and 88 MSU loss are runners up)
Seems to me the ENTIRE sports writing WORLD doesn't remember how "great" Hoke's first team (with RichRod personnel) was. 11-2, won the Sugar bowl. Boy were the blue boyz full of wild fantasies then. That was 5 years ago. No one considers that Harblegh might similarly flame out. Hope so just for the entertainment value of the Khaki exhibitionist trying to explain how mean ol' Rutgers beat them. LOL! Fun to contemplate.
How to recruit 101: "You'll win a national championship, B1G rings and a degree from tOSU. Deliver. 50-4 isn't so magical now is it? Excellence isn't lucky.
Not an excuse, an explanation. His whole downfall and incorrect decisions were driven by his consuming passion to teach, grow and take care of "his kids". His whole career. His coaching awesomeness is a fringe benefit. Congratulations to a fine man and legendary Buckeye.
Do these as a an audio or video podcast. Would rock! Plus post the transcript. Just ideas :-) Good stuff guys.
Just AGHAST the DJ calls the flippin' BeeGees more talented than the stones. Bob, can't sing a note, Dylan was bad enough. You youngsters (head shaking) :-) Fun article as always though! Go Bucks!!!
The final scores of 15 Ws will be sufficient statistically for me ;-)
All the contenders should be rewarded by a lifetime vacation in the magical kingdom of Smarmya.
It is a Smarmasbord! You couldn't line up a smarmier group in total if you designed and built your own.
Great fun! This is BRILLIANT! (can you tell I like that you call out their smarminess?). #GoBucks!!!!
It will be Miller backed up by Cardale (as the two leaving the program for pretty sure). JT will get the job next year and barring injury be the leader/mentor for the grab bag of Stellar QBs (potentially) behind him.
I don't know how Miller doesn't win it. The best guy will play I'm pretty sure.
I really like number 3!! Think of the throw backs in addition to the runs!
We claim 8 :-D Since 1995 The Ohio State University football team has won 10 or more games 14 times. That's more 10 win seasons, spanning 3 coaches, than many programs have experienced in their entire existence. Add in 5 (6, 7 or 8) National Championships including the first CFP undisputed Champion. People are talking "dynasty", that's pretty dynastic already. Enjoy the Championship (and any future ones), repeating is very hard to do. I agree about counting by team but by conference is a fun exercise. Go Bucks!!!
Long way (with great pictures) to say "Gap Sound"
Good read! Until/Unless Urban gets to 9-1 against TTUN I'll take the Senator to coach The Game if I have to choose.
Don't do such things to ANY truly good bourbon :-)
Glad you caught that too LOL!!!
Let's do Intensive intents and care purposes.
Go Bucks!!!! Turtle Time!!!
Why the gratuitous Bollman cracks. I know he's popular to hate on. All those 10 win (plus!) seasons and an MNC OBVIOUSLY indicates how poorly he performed. Bollman has been gone a couple of years now, FYI.
The T'eo story ust shows how the school of media fish swarm whatever is determined to be "news". This would have been a nifty weird story for 1 day or 2 but sheesh. Give it a rest. Slow news cycles will milk anything.
