Watching some of those highlights was great.  I especially loved the beanie wells spin move in the backfield for the 50ish yd td.   He was a freshman then and I remember thinking how set we were at running back for the 3 years after that.  Little did I know what was coming after him.

I was born in 90 so I am fortunate enough to only remember the latter years of that run (#blessed).  One of my first OSU memories though is my dad slamming the door while yelling about Biakabatuka.

The other thing the Bammers seem to forget is that they had a loss as well.  A fluke play for Sparty against MSU would have put us in (no excuse though, we are the only ones to blame for losing).  Bama won their conference with a lot of help from a fluke play for Arkansas that beat Ole Miss.

Regarding your Bucket & Dipper story.  My dad went to Mount Union in the 70s where he was in a fraternity.  Some of the stories he told me would get you crucified today.  One of the funniest to me is that they also have a small lake (read: pond) on campus and every Sunday night during the warmer months they would find a virgin to throw into the lake.  As the kids these days say: IT WAS LIT!

Another thing that I didn't see mentioned was the fatty wagon at Great Lakes.  You can park there ($5 if I remember right), buy a ticket for a dollar and get a ride to and from.  Plus if you're looking for craft beer that is the way to do it.  Bonus is market garden across the street from Great Lakes as well.  That is what I do every time I go to Cleveland

And according to your table, he does better than the other 3 as the underdog.  Looking at the overall W/L ratio he is pretty much on par.  65% compared to 70-75% for the others.

I think his run in the B1G has been pretty remarkable as well.  In the 11 years he's coached here, OSU has been in the final 7 times, winning 4 of them.  Assuming we don't win this year, he still has won the B1G tourney title 25% of the time.  Izzo has only won 2 (probably 3 including this year) in that time frame.  Wisconsin has won two.  No one else with more than one.

I agree with you, but honestly isn't that what Illinois needs?  At this point they are (one of) the laughing stock(s) of the B1G.  They weren't going to go out and get a splash name from another program (ex. Strong from Louisville to Texas).  Even if Lovie brings them back to competitive and gets them to a B1G championship or two, that is a step in the right direction.  Then maybe they can go get a splash name with great experience in college. 

Look at the number of students who showed up for his presser or whatever it was in their union the other day.  I'm not even joking when I say I'm pretty sure more were there than at any of the football games this past year.  Even that excitement is a step in the right direction, albeit a small one out of the many miles they have to go.

I'm not sure when the last time you tried to scalp tickets for a tribe game, but I was able to get in for $5 just about anytime I went last year.  Hell, even the bleacher seats were something like $10 and the SRO in right field were $13 with a $4 food voucher.

I love watching him play.  The dancing gets a little over the top, but I think he just really enjoys the game.  It looks like he has a ton of fun playing, which is what the game is all about in the end.

I didn't like him at Auburn at the time, but as ZM said I put that one on the NCAA.
