I was at the game, and the Navy brigades assembling before the game was also an incredible sight to behold. The Bucks going to join in Navy's post game ceremony was very classy and impressive. I was just happy to get out of there with a W.
Columbus can never host the Men's Final Four, because they are only held in domed stadiums. Unless Ohio Stadium becomes climate controlled, it's not going to happen.
I was at that game, nervously smoking a cigarette on the concourse while listening to the radio broadcast.
Then I heard a loud roar and raced down the tunnel to the stands to see Finkes completing his dash to the end zone.
I was on the field after the game as well.
Was this the year that Buckeye fans took down the south goal posts, and tried to get the north posts before the Indiana players surrounded them to prevent the others from being torn down? I think it was, but I've been to Bloomington so many times that each trip is lost in a haze of booze and aging.
I used to get tickets from a former player who I had known his whole life, and I would get a phone call from someone at OSU (don't know if it was the Athletic Department or Compliance Department). The player had to leave the name and phone number of each person a ticket was for. I received a call before every game asking how I knew the player, and if the ticket was for me.
When I picked the ticket up at the player will call, whether at the 'Shoe or on the road, the tickets were given at a location that did not allow you to go back outside (if you were of the mindset to try to sell it), and had to enter the stadium immediately after producing an ID and signing for them.
So it seems to me that they already had this covered.
The article is incorrect. Iowa won 29-27, which explains why they had to go for it on fourth and 23. They were down 27-22.
