The irony is that they are better off than last year's defending National Championships. Bottom line, it is almost impossible to go undefeated in D1.
Wanted to save one of their 2 timeouts. Cost them big time.
Scalp all the time and never had an issue with a ticket. Seems like a lot of these folks sucker themselves. Never again to Crappy Valley or Weaksconsin.
Love OSU, but Earle is not legendary. Started going to games in the mid 1970's and was going to school there when he was coaching and EVERYONE wanted him fired, except his players so after the final SCum win to go 5-4, all of a sudden they wanted him to stay. Cooper ended up being there quite a bit longer as 9-3 was not doing it, but yes his terrible michigan record cost them repeated National Title chances, unlike Earle's single one in his first season. As for coaching trees, they are really hard to associate with the head coach and get way too much pub. Who truly gets the true credit for being someone's instructor since most of these guys were elsewhere and people forget that he did fire Nick Saban.
GoBuckeyes1020 nailed it with the 15 years of more as Jim Tressel ruined it for me. Even during my Woody Years in the 1970's, National Titles were not an option. Beating SCum and winning the bowl game were the best expectations for y as a Buckeye fan, until Tressel won it and winning Titles became expected and the very plausible norm that has only continued with Urban!.
Anyone know why they are not showing Pryor's 57 TD passes? His ridiculous 5 year ban has ended, unlike President Tressel's 5 year show cause that ends in December.
Missed it and was wondering what did Malcolm do during the National Anthem?
Love Ohio State, but if Earle is legendary, then so is Cooper. Go Bucks!
Indeed. It is Rutgers weak.
Wisconsin beat the wrong michigan team. The will lay an egg this week.
Walt, yet again is Keys!
Should be QBing in the NFL with some of the stiffs they have at QB.
Who needs him. Back pick, worse attempt to not try and tackle him.
Ah, sweet history.
Could make him one of the best students ever.
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!
