  • SPORTS MOMENT: Every time I step into the Horseshoe, the 1997 Rose Bowl, the entirety of the 2002 season (especially "Holy Buckeye", The Game, winning the National Championship), the 2006 season - pre-disaster in the desert, the Game of the Century in 2006, the 2010 Rose Bowl victory against "unstoppable" Oregon, the next decade of CFB dominance under Urban Meyer.

Bull, my first game at the Shoe was 1999 as well, unfortunately against Ron Dayne led Wisconsin, who pummeled us. That was a rough year but it - and an equally disappointing 2000 - led us to the Vest and Tempe, so it was worth it.

We were in Florida at the time and for some reason, I had to watch the entire Rose Bowl game on like an 8 inch black and white portable TV. It was one of the best games I've ever watched and one of the most exciting bowl games in history. I literally went ape shit after Boston strutted into the end zone, which certainly didn't seem likely after Jake the Snake put ASU ahead with only a couple minutes to spare.

Unfortunately, the first game I attended in person was 1999 against Wisconsin. That was the year Ron Dayne went off and I think they beat us like 42-17. It sucked, but I was mesmerized with Ohio Stadium and still am to this day. The good thing is, I haven't seen us lose in person since!

I've heard this a lot lately, and I just don't buy it. Maybe it'd make sense if we WEREN'T playing some of the best football in the country - against our toughest competition of the year, to boot.

I'm more worried about Iowa beating Wisky and throwing a wrench in our need to play a highly ranked team in the B1G Championship. I don't see Iowa winning out though. I want Minny to beat Nebraska but I really don't want a rematch in the B1G Championship, as I don't think that would benefit us all that much. I do want to pummeled that dickweed that said TCU was better than Ohio State, though.

You forgot your sarcasm font.

I'm surprised so few of us remember the 1997 Rose Bowl. As a young Buckeye fan at the time, I had yet to see a bowl win, much less an all time classic Rose Bowl that should have been for a National Championship, if not for the colossal 13-9 disappointment against TTUN 6 weeks prior. Anyhow, that game against Jake Plummer's ASU team was the first epic bowl win etched into my 12 year old mind, and one that I still remember in detail to this day. Aside from 2003 against Miami and 2006 TTUN, this is my favorite Buckeye memory, hands down. Another often forgotten gem is the 1995 game against Notre Dame, which was unbelievably hyped up in Columbus that year. That was an incredible game to watch; 1995 was one of the best, most talented Buckeye teams in my 30 year lifetime!

Am I the only one that's worried Wisconsin is going to lose to either Iowa or Minnesota? We need Wisconsin to win out and we DEFINITELY do not want to play an at least 3-loss Minnesota in the B1G Championship game, as it probably wouldn't give us the boost we need in the CFB playoff poll to finish top 4. For the love of God, Wisconsin, please win out and do so impressively...

This is a big reason why SEC rankings are always so inflated. Teams move up the polls early in the season for beating other "top 10" SEC teams, such as South Carolina, Texas A&M and LSU this year. It's a brilliant strategy, really, and the media has swallowed it whole.

No, it is not fun to think about. At all. Why are people thinking about this when we are one game away from the B1G CG and 3 games away from being in the playoff? So stupid.
