Looking forward to an even better decade!
Cancer needs kicked in the balls.
Going for Gold this afternoon!
Jim Tressel changed my life as an Ohio State Fooball fan. Never expected a National Title in my life since 1969 until the Senator changed it all.
Where does SCum get off saying they have given more players to the NFL than The Ohio State University? Check the facts mam.
Pre-Tressel, all I wanted, and expected, was to beat SCum and win the bowl game. Coop was 1-13-1 before this win. They should have scored all day on Arizona's week pass D. Not a huge Brent Musburger fan, but he is a legend and I like Dick Vermeil, despite his "robbing" us of a National title. Yet, the clear fact these guys had to have bet this game, nothing beats Vermeil's referees comment that "Pass interferance! Pass Interferance! Jesus . . . those guys down there the officials ought to donate their check to charity on that call. My gosh. That is too obvious."
One of my favorite bars in Windsor, Ontario, where we would stay instead of Detroit, The Walkerville Tavern had a "Hat Night." It was good times, especially the post wins over SCum and Sparty.
Did see you Vikings at training camp with the Bengals today.
Agreed. All I ever wanted, pre-Tressel of course, was to beat michigan and win a bowl game as that was the best a season could bring. That was strange going to Ohio State when they were a basketball, not a football school.
My last year at Ohio State as well when Ohio State was a basketball, not a Football school from 1987-1992. Where we are now, is why one must always learn their history in order to never repeat it. So much better now as graduate, then it was whilst going to school. Keep it up Bucks.
Nice game and he turned around the side against Argentina after trailing to take the lead. Too bad they pulled a Cooper and gagged that game as they did. Would have been huge, now need to upset Fiji tomorrow. USA baby!
Simple, they would have lost to SCum. How many undefeated teams did? And we all know had they not been upset by Sparty, they would have lost to SCum. All I ever wanted for the season to be a successful one was beat -ichigan and win a bowl game. Bridesmaid, never a bride was my entire OSU football experience, that is until Jim Tressel changed it all and completely flipped my Buckeye life script.
Earle's last season and Cooper's first 4 years could easily be known as the time when Ohio State was known as a basketball, and not a football school.
The Earle Bruce handling was terrible.
This is why having a great schedule only hinders you. Complain all you want, but wins are wins and losses are losses.
Does not matter who the coach was, but everyone expects a title every year. Bottom line, it is very hard to do, regardless of how great a team is. 2015 team, should have been better than the 2014 team that won it, same as 1969 compared to 1968. Would have been great if Woody won some more, probably should have, but how many more than Tressel or even Urban? 50-4 and 1 title? We love our team and always expect the impossible for them. Take them when you get them, and hope you get more. I have seen Woody, Earl, John, Jim and Urban coach many times, loved the wins, never wanted losses and complained like a loving fan, but sure I wanted and think we should have had more of the,, but I am happy to have 3 titles in my life. Only 6 undefeated season all time show how hard it is and like last year proved, it is very hard to win a title with even one loss, regardless of how great you are. Go everything Bucks.
Amen 703 Buckeye.
Pretty much the 2015 team.
Nice, but I must mention one of the most underrated kickers ever and that is Rich Spangler. Spangler kicked from 1982-1985 and he was the last straight on kicker. I remember, because he was pretty good and had some range and I remember being shocked he could not make the NFL and later saw articles about him saying it pretty much was due to the fact he was a straight on kicker for quite a while after it "fell out of favor."
You keep hitting homers SWORD52. Not the best season, or ichigan result, but what a great picture with the construction of Lincoln and Morrill Towers.
Even decades after the faculty voted to not send the team to the Rose Bowl for the same reasons. Sometimes, tas in these cases, the past is not better.
One of the worst stories period.
Not happy about a game that has the only two teams that I always want to lose, playing each other. Should be nice to see what the NCAA's biggest douchebag head coach will comment about being dropped.
He did flop, but why was he on the field? The CFL also as sidelines.
