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.
  • NFL TEAM: whoever has the most Buckeyes
  • MLB TEAM: New York Yankees
  • SOCCER TEAM: not a real sport

The Methodist church on Neil is another option. As the Buckeyes are getting into the Victory formation, call ahead to Adriatico's Pizza and it should be ready by the time you walk to 11th Ave.

I don't think its worth the extra money. Traffic after night games always moves slower and lots close in are the last to empty. I prefer the parking garage on 11th Ave. It provides easy access to 71N or go down to 5th Ave. to get on 315. Do not cut over on King because that is where the medical center lots come out. If you're staying downtown, easy access to either High or Neil.

It was in writing. That's how they found the audit trail. Bottom line is people were offered unlawful bonuses. I'll bet they were paid to soldiers who died in line of duty. At least they aren't trying to collect from widows - yet. So if you give a pass to widows, why can't you give the same benefit to veterans who lived up to their commitment? That's a question for the resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Remembered Alabama lost at Mississippi last year and still won the championship. Also thought it would be good not to play Alabama this year as the team matures, but then remembered I had the same impulse in 2014.

Here is one PSU conspiracy I do believe in: their schedule was rigged to give them the best chance to get to the Rose Bowl as soon as possible after entering the league. As much as I hate to say it, Michigan was the best team in the Big Ten at the time. PSU had a bye before Michigan for their first four seasons. They had a bye before OSU for the first two seasons plus OSU played in State College two of the first three seasons. Paterno was famous for scheduling a bye before big games like Alabama. Woody never forgave him for moving the Temple game up before OSU when it was originally scheduled as a season opener for both teams. My question is why Michigan and Ohio State, arguably the two toughest teams in the conference and not Indiana and Minnesota? My math may be faulty, but I calculate the odds at 810:1.

Add in rain is expected Saturday. I'd sleep for a couple hours and leave early Sunday morning. In addition to being two lanes, RTE 17 is hilly and winding.

I don't know if a conference title game is in the current TV contract, but they are probably hoping to get Fox and ESPN in a bidding war. Not going to happen. 

Texas and Oklahoma to the B1G when the new TV contract expires in 2023. They will eat the first and second tier GOR for two years if necessary (league may come apart and be a moot point.) LHN and Sooner Network not affected by GOR. What is the B1G says no TV money until 2026? GOR worthless. Texas and Oklahoma could get increased share of bowl revenues to compensate.

I think the CFP committee will do everything they can to avoid two teams from the same conference. The outcry from omitted conferences would be tremendous and you're getting a repeated game.
