It depends on the Presidents schedule. They will usually have some of these groups (National Champions) all go through during the same time. They have a special camera set-up to take these pics as some of the teams are rather large. I was a Marine assigned to the White House from 2000-2004 and was lucky enough to score a copy of the 2002 WH trip!! My guess is that they visit in late Spring, early summer.
You better be careful down there, they will "make you squeal like a piggy"!!
Greatest run in the history of sports is a stretch, I'd sure welcome it though!!
Too many variables in college sports for that today and also to keep these 18-21 years olds out of trouble (money, video, social media, etc...). Hard to beat the runs by UCLA, the Bulls and the Celtics!
I do think we will go on a run similar to 'Bama and claim 2-3 MORE titles in the next 5 years. Meyer retires when he is 60 and Luke comes back to coach the Buckeyes with Troy Smith as the Offensive Coordinator and Vrabel as the Defensive Coordinator!!
I wish the hats were fitted. I don't like snapbacks hats... still deciding??
If he could run the ball like Zeke, I'm sure his schooling would be paid for!!
To make this more impressive he was also be tackled from behind during the hit or he'd be off to the races!!
He saw eZe last night and he thought, "I want to be the next great at THE Ohio State University!!"
Maybe someone should start a thread for championship memorabilia people find
Tell her she has to memorize the fight song and sing it before EVERY Christmas present she opens!!
I doubt that Braxton is an "attention hound", but rather the opposite. He seems to have a quiet demeaner, does his job and gets out of there. Neither you or I have any idea what his life is like, but think about it for a second...
1) He is still probably the most recognizable and popular person on the campus. Considering you were looking for him in a gathering of several thousand people b/c you knew he'd be there, "perhaps" others were too. Maybe, he stopped to sign an autograph or respond to fans saying hi to him rather than to be rude.
2) He is rehabbing an injury and his team is preparing for their biggest game in almost 7 years! Maybe that had an issue with him running a little late.
3) He wasn't late, he was just one of the last ones to arrive. Not like they held up the whole show just for him.
4) Like others have said, he didn't announce him name. He has done more for the university than most, including bringing in millions of dollars over the years, help rebuild a program during a hard time and being a leader to the next generations of Buckeyes... so I think he is entitled to being recognized over the other students.
5) I don't think I have seen him being interviewed at all. Maybe a word or two all season. He didn't "appear" on the pre or post-game shows. He has been in the background and supporting this years teams and players when needed (on sideline talking to JT or in the Pressbox).
Well Said, I was going to say the exact same thing.
Also, in reference to the Championship game when Urban and FL upset us when it looked like they had no chance, he has previously stated that he had a recording of all the analysts talking about how they had no chance airing all over the complex. Talk about having that rubbed in your face all month long!! Urban is a master motivator (He does has a degree in psychology). He will have them pumped for this game and they will put forth their best effort!
Don't forget Vrabel too!
Maybe he watched some Jack Tatum or Vernon Gholston film because that was a vicious clothes line!!
Makes me think of the movie "The Great White Hype", when "Roper" (Damon Waynes) is messing with the white boxer and not taking him serious until he gets knocked down... then he gets up and is like, you trying to embarrass me on National TV??
Cardale is like, you trying to embarrass me by taking my ball, well you are going to pay the price!!
He's setting it up for the playoffs. He knew that game was ours, so he wanted to start setting a trend. Punt inside the 40, so when it comes down to that situation in the playoffs, Johnston can run the Aussie keeper and get us the first down!! If he doesn't get it, they get ok field position... no big loss. Same as going for a long FG and missing, although a long FG means 1) low trejectory 2) all linemen on field=good probability of a returned TD, 3) Our weak kicking game has low percentage of making it.
So many players, but only a handful of "buckeye looking" coaches!!
One of my favorite Buckeye pictures and hanging in my mancave!! Go Bucks!
I wonder if they have that in the Hawk house or if AJ had that framed and sent it Brady! I know I would've!!
I still use this for a screen saver once in awhile!! Epic!! I miss those visors!!
Still remember his clothesline tackle in THE GAME!! Dude was a beast! I was shocked he never caught on in the NFL.
Those would be my first picks too, however no matter how great Cardale was in the Big Ten Championship Game, he is still the weakest link on the team until he shows he can do it game in and game out (Wisky didn't have any film on him, 'Bama will have some). I would have to say (other than Braxton or JT), I'd say Troy or Pryor. Pryor couldn't lacked the accuracy, but he could make some passes and could run all over everyone (see Arkansas and Oregon games)! Troy could run, throw and had superior leadership!!
He was also the BEST corner in high school as well!! Don't remember him playing QB, maybe wildcat. Troy was his high school QB.
Teddy in the huddle to Cardale, " you just throw it as far as you can and I'll catch it"... 20 seconds later, Teddy is in the upper deck with the ball"!! Seriously, it would be hard even for Cardale to overthrow Ginn!!
That would be awesome! He has the talent, but I'm sure some extra time would be great for him.... just in case we have to go to our 4th or 5th string QB next year!!
Man, this guy is unbelievable!!! I thought he struck a new low with him wearing a shirt with giant picture of himself on it, BUT he actually made a doll of himself!! LOL!!
He's earned the right to be hired as a Head Coach, just thought he'd get better offers than Tulsa.
