I kinda liked the chair toss.
Fall of '49, freshman year at OSU. Tuition cost me $72. Student activities card, $10, which included all home football and basketball games, and any other sporting for which there was an admission charge. How about them apples.
Great suggestion, NorCal.
Afternoon or night for The Game. No difference.
He has practically lived on the LSU campus. LOL.
All I can remember is that it was within easy walking distance from the stadium.
Shades of U Hall.
Is the armory still there?
Uh, this is a Phil Steele article, and he has UM ranked 12th, not 4th.
You're on the money, 18.
Curly from Upper Arlington, if I'm not mistaken. He was also fast, and a tremendous punter. Went on to play for the Chicago Bears. I recall a punting down when it was either a bad snap, or maybe he just saw an opening; anyway he took off and scored.
That must be the train tracks where the Gold train and Blue trains came in from Michigan. I came down on the Gold train a couple of times with friends who were M letter winners (the M Club). Of course I had my buckeye gear on. Great food and drinks, and I was well treated. A lot of good-natured back and forth.
I thought that 5 yard rule was only in the NFL?
Nice addition, GV.
Maybe. How old is Jent?
92, It was an easy little follow-up jumper. Jent later admitted he rushed the attempt because of the time, when he actually had plenty of time to make the shot. A sad day, especially vs the Flunk Four.
I believe "Catfoot Cody" was the first player to wear low-cut shoes.
Claude "Buddy Young", the fastest man in college football.
Maybe a Bama troll.
So glad you have this last picture, 52. 41 is Gene Derricote being plowed under by Dick Flanagan. The next frame would show Derricote on his knees, bent over completely backwards to the turf. He suffered a serious back injury, and did not return to the game. If I recall correctly, this was a 3rd and long, successfully converted. Dick Flanagan was one tough mother, and it was no fun tackling him.
I certainly hope so.
Yep. He and QB Ralph Gulielmi were in the senior class together. Gulielmi went on to Notre Dame and the Washington Redskins. Gulielmi is in the College Football Hall of Fame.
