This is lame compared to some of the memories shared here, but I grew up in Columbus and -- from as early as I can remember -- it was just what happened on Saturdays. And that eventually carried over to basketball and then the rest of the year. My parents shared great stories about Woody, Archie, Rose Bowls, and even how "old" 315 used to be a parking lot for hours on Saturdays before the expressway was built, but I can't say there was a defining moment. It was part of the neighborhood/community fabric. Period.

2006 is the only time when we had a good defense and actually still got killed in a bowl game. Although the 06' defense was Little Animal's coming out year, I don't think they were nearly as good as the previous years before.
