Saw the 1968 Rose Bowl live. Was there in Tempe for the greatest college football game ever. Flew the OSU flag while stationed in Afghanistan.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Nothing will ever top beating Miami in Tempe. When Cie Grant thew Dorsey to the ground, all the close, up not quite, national championship moments such as 1976 and 1980, Ron Springs slip, Clements punt to the helmet, etc. washed away.

I'm sure the goal again will be for kickoffs high to the two-yard line between the numbers and sidelines. Gain the advantage over a touchback at the 25.

As much as I love Stadium mustard, I gave up hot dogs at games long ago. I restrict myself to the $4.50 bottled water.

You're forgetting how many $4 cokes, $3 hot dogs, etc. that would have been consumed by the additional 30K fans.

I think Dontre, Bosa, Grant, et al were held out to avoid injury. You can bet Urban is tired of Earle telling him about the spring game where Tomczak broke his leg.

Someone should tell Congress to hold up on the statue of Edison replacing the racist Gov. Allen. 11W has spoken and we want a statue of Owens.

Forecast continues to look good. You can get discounted tickets at Donato's.

People keep forgetting Title IX. You would have to pay all scholarship athletes. OSU has about 1000. x2k=$2M. OSU's athletic profit for the last reported year was < $100K.

A direwolf pup, perhaps?

The forecast for the spring game is getting better: the consensus is upper 60's and partly cloudy/sunny. BTW, I'm doing this as a service to my fellow 11W readers trying to decide whether to come to the game. We're all hungry for football, but the weather is a huge factor in deciding whether to shell out the bucks for tickets and come to Columbus or watch it in HD in your man cave.

Every time I see the billboard for the Jesse Owens Museum alongside the interstate north of Birmingham, I chuckle. It's the same image used on the postage stamp except the OHIO on the jersey is omitted.

FWIW, the chicken comment about ND was spot on. Handing Brandon an envelope before a game starting the three-year clock was extreme poultry.

One of Colter's stated issues when he made the application was players playing as a freshman not getting not getting a fifth season to go to grad school. NW thrives on taking lesser players and developing them so they contribute in the fourth and fifth seasons. I can see the definite value of a Northwestern MBA for a player that has no illusions of an NFL career. This is counter to Alabama's roster management technique of running off 5th year players in favor of the newest five star. To be fair, it appears J.T. Moore is in this category as well. We don't know if he wanted to play another season - with the physical sacrifice - or decided to get on with his life's work. The issue is if a player has an additional year of eligibility, should he be entitled to it? One solution is to give five year scholarships with four years of eligibility, but that would be enormously expensive as it would have to apply to all scholarship athletes.
