I agree, Travis. I haven't seen or heard any explanation for that move. I watched most of the game, and the pitcher was in command of his pitches, cruising along, and I could not for the life of me understand that move. I don't know if the announcers questioned it, since I watch with soond off most of the time. I would love to hear coach Beal's explanation. The only reason I could think of was that the pitcher told the coach that he was out of gas, or his arm was sore, but he appeared to be just as strong as in the early innings. Sorry for the rant. Not many things make me angry in OSU sports, but this was one of them.
Anybody, Civil War buffs, know who the officers are in the picture? I recognize Lee and Grant, but who are the others?
All-American Bob Karch was my chemistry teacher at Columbus East High School. East High named their athletic fields after him: Harley Field. I grew up on the east side on Greenway North in a neighborhood called Eastgate. Our backyard butted up against Harley Field.
Oscar Robertson-Bill Russell-Wilt Chamberlain.
Too early. Check back the last week of August.
Uh, 13-0. I don;t think so.
I think you are right on with that comparison, Andrew. Hard-working, gives a 100%.
Right on. If you want to win an NC, you have to beat "Saban's crew".
Not to mention, "Ohio Fats".
Have we even offered him? Yeah, we offered.
I 2nd that.
You are correct.
I appreciate your input, Blu. I hope some of the crazies on here don't run you off. We need a different perspective, from time to time.
I believe you are correct. I see Thad stepping down of his own accord in 1 year, 2 at the most, because of his physical condition. I believe that it has drained him not only physically, but mentally as well. I don't think he is able to function not only physically, but mentally as well. Here's wishing the best for Thad, may he go out on a high note.
I nominate James Jones from Yale. I was really impressed by his team's play and composure under fire. They seem to be modeling their coach. His demeanor on the sideline was really impressive.
You've got that right.
Nice write-up, Aubrey. Makes the game come alive. Would you say that the team has been improving as the season has gone along. Also, do other schools(Minnesota) give more scholarships for hockey, or is it regulated by NCAA.
Thanks, Curt. Much appreciated.
Jeremy, great article. It's good for modern-day fans to know that recruiting wasn't always like it is today.
As an update: There was no total FB scholarship limit until 1973, when it was set at 110. In 1978 it was reduced to 95. In 1992 the limit was set at 85, and remains so until today. Woody carried a total of about 125 give or take from year to year. The fact that the first limit was set @ 110 tells me that the FB powers were well over that limit, and had been for some time.
There may be more Akron fans than Buckeyes in the Schott.
Agreed. My concern with the NIT is that the Bucks will just continue to reinforce bad habits. This team is not sound in basic BB fundamentals, and playing games does not correct that, only sound practice reps.
Thanks, Kevin, for the info.
I agree. Let's move along.
