Even his name: Orlas King was like himself, his OSU fandom and legacy, bigger than life.
Ramzy, nailed it again. Great piece. Being first generation and having the exact same OSU upbringing made this article just a little bit more enjoyable than most of yours. My brother and I being in our early/pre-teens were one of the first to catch his "act" before it even caught on. We used to always joke early on about how being "loaded" that one day, and deciding to dance to that song defined his legacy forever, but after reading your article I wholeheartedly concur.
The 2014 season has now officially started.
Greg Frey is a genuinely great guy. Had the pleasure of watching him and sharing a German language course with him, a bunch of other nice folks and a really great teacher. And I have that football card. Michael Citro is a genuinely great guy as well, although he never lead no comebacks.
You are welcome Lou Holtz. You are no officially off the hook.
One of those classic stories after a monumental moment. Apparently, 200,000 people claim to have been there. While I was not there, I was able to witness Notre Dame's first 0-4 start in their history. Good Sparty. Last year and beyond . . . bad Sparty.
Always a Buckeye. Excellent job of keeping us all plugged in.
Amen. Heal up Braxton and Go Bucks!
From 100% to possibly 0% in 8 hours. That sucks. Happy thoughts and wishes.
The realities of a 9 game conference schedule. Home, home, home, home and away, home, home . . .
The death knell for the Ohio Union. Losing Scarlata & Gray Pizza and Wildman's to Stuff Yer Face and the removal of the bowling lanes officially signaled the end.
It is baseball. There are no rivalries in baseball.
Big fan of the tandem. Another great piece.
Amen! cancer needs a serious kicking of its balls.
Great Boardman Buckeye upholding the long tradition.
Not a Browns fan, but easily the least deserving owner. Bad businessman, owner, etc. Would be an insult to all those who are in the hall. Truth hurts.
Has anyone brought up UC's fine showing at Illinois last year?
#1. What you said.
Thank goodness the internet really did not exist during the Cooper years. Oh, and thank it for existing in its current incarnation. Go Bucks, keep pouring it on the wolverwienees.
Gardner!? Is not the object to sell as many as you can?
Bush league stuff. Last white out game I went to at Crappy Valley ended up being a BLOWOUT game.
Turns out Penn State never beat us in those games.
The 1901 program cover proves my point. I have always told anyone who will listen that nobody doubts SCum's dominance of the first 30 years, because since they were one of the first teams, they were the only ones who actually had any equipment. Proof from 1901. Thanks again might Eleven.
When you couple 4th down with 3rd down, and even 2nd down, then yes.
