The Illinois game in '02 was far too close (but weren't they all that season?). If I remember correctly, Mo Hall took an option pitch from the 5 or so to win the game in OT.
Probably not in the discussion as far as "greatest game," but I really enjoyed the Fiesta Bowl against ND. Troy Smith to Ted Ginn really set the tone early on.
As far as greatest games are concerned, my votes have all been mentioned
97 Rose Bowl
02 vs Miami
06 vs U of M
Did anybody mention 02 vs Purdue? "Krenzel's going for the ballgame..."
Vrabel, John Simon, Bosa, Will Smith
Hawk, Katzenmoyer (Wasn't old enough to see Spielman in college), Shazier
Springs, Rob Kelly, Doss, Winfield.
In no particular order:
GTA San Andreas
Fallout: New Vegas
NCAA Football (Madden is not even close. I prefer the aspect of recruiting vs draft/FA. Also, I think running the ball is far more realistic in the NCAA series)
Tetris. I could (and did) play this game for hours.
Maybe this is more your speed then. 38-3 is a pretty major blowout, though the final score is a bit deceiving because Kent's best wrestler didn't get to compete and gave up 6 team points (7 if you include the lost team point).
At a glance, it looks like that's action from last year's match with Kent State.
You are correct that a major decision is worth 4 team points. With that said, KSU was assessed a personal conduct penalty (during the 157 match if memory serves) and lost a team point.
Thanks for keeping me honest!
BTN Plus is their premium or PPV plan.
Don't take a drink just before you click the link or you'll end up mopping off your screen.
Stieber grew up in Monroeville, so if you tell me you're from Attica and then moved to Pittsburgh, I'll feel pity for you.
I live near Fathead's Brewery in North Olmsted, so I'm able to find their Holly Jolly in stores near me. Holly Jolly is fantastic.
It's on BTN Plus tonight. Fear not! I should have a recap up ASAP
You'll be able to watch tonight's match on BTN Plus ($$$). Typically, the Big Ten Network does a nice job of airing the big matches (Iowa vs Minnesota, Penn State vs Iowa, etc), so there should be a heavy dose of Buckeye wrestling available to you if you're able to get BTN through your cable provider.
You missed the last stipulation: Buckeyes must be victorious because #pride
I think there are different names for him in different dialects. I have also heard him called Punts-on-Fourth, Daveasaurus Tress, and even The Stoic One.
It's even worse when you say "Hi, _______" and the person then introduces themselves. My grandma is the biggest offender of this rule.
leave it to Jason to rely on facts to back up an opinion. I'd prefer to just speculate, thank you.
Thanks. I think you're neat too. Wait. Did I misunderstand you?
I have a feeling that Kyle will be a points guy. I'd love to see him work on his top game and turns so he can be a bigger version of Logan, but I'm not sure anybody can emulate Stieber at this point.
For selfish reasons, I'd like to see Snyder's style look like my favorite non-Buckeye wrestler, Greg Jones of West Virginia. The guy was a takedown machine and could score from any position on his feet.
A year at the Olympic Training Center seems to have done wonders for Kyle. It sounds like he is an ace at takedowns, but his top game could use some work. That'll come, but for now, he's got a huge amount of upside.
He is indeed too good to sit out, but Coach Ryan doesn't always redshirt freshmen. It just so happened that by redshirting Bo Jordan and Nathan Tomasello last season, they'd have All-American candidates in most weight classes this season.
I've found that there is a bit of gamesmanship and strategy involved when NCAA coaches decide to redshirt kids (see Penn State this season redshirting Megaludis this year as well as Nevills, Nolf, etc to make a run at future NCAA titles).
