  • SPORTS MOMENT: Ted Ginn's punt return for TD against those bastards from Ann Arbor in 2004. I had been down for a few months since the death of my father, followed by a really disappointing football season for the Buckeyes. That glorious win against the scUMmers felt so good. The sun was shining again.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Archie Griffin. Troy Smith is a close second.

No Simon Kenton mentioned? What?! I nominate him then.  He was one bad ass mutha.

Also, second the Eddie Rickenbacker nomination.

That ref from last night's game (in the picture) - is it fair to say he has a "punch me" face?

We missed some tackles but 90% of the problem is the scheme. When the opposing team knows it's going to see zone coverage almost every play, and especially if they expect some kind of zone blitz, they're going to hit you with what works against those defenses.  I'm not saying we should go to man coverage every single play, but we really need to mix it up.  If you're playing rock scissors paper and you throw the same choice out every single time, you're not going to be very hard to beat.

Marcus Hall for life. Eff the skunkbears and their trash fans. Dontre was jumped by a bunch of lowlife thugs. Props to Marcus for defending him.

Great stuff.

It's easy to assume high levels of character in your favorite players, with very little to no basis.  But with this team, I really get a very strong impression that it has a large number of quality people on it, thanks in no small part to Coach Tressel.  And Ryan Shazier is cream of the crop.

That 19-19 record versus the SEC you refer to is all games I believe, not just bowls.

Archie has REAL class.  Not the kind those arrogant jerks up north exhibit.  And even without that, he's the greatest of all time.

I was thinking MSU but you're probably right.  Nebraska does do a really good job of making their opponent look like the '85 Bears in the B1G championship game.

Maybe it's just a face presented to the public, but this team seems to be brimming with leadership, and a degree of unselfishness rare these days.
