A few recent pickups:
1941 Ohio State Coach Paul Brown (please excuse the text but people continue to copy images and sell as original on Ebay or other sites so I protect my original prints in this manner).
1926 Chicago Bears vs. Louisville Colonels.
Ohio State Alumn Pete Stinchcomb is featured on this original broadside.

Amazing autograph, I've never seen one before.
I'm still looking for a Charles "Chic" Harley autograph and more photos of him.
Thanks! It is my honor to serve!
It would be great to see what other items are out there.

He's on the team, so give him the fan support, that is our obligation to any newcomer. Cleveland meet Johnny Manziel, like it or not, he is here to stay. For how long? That is yet to be seen, but as I stated before, he is here so make the best of it, shut your pie holes, and get onboard or change teams to Pittsburgh like all those other traders did in the 70's.
Well that's disappointing that he will fall short of Clowney's rap sheet... he's on the team, so give him the fan support, that is our obligation to any newcomer. Cleveland meet Johnny Manziel, like it or not, he is here to stay. For how long? That is yet to be seen, but as I stated before, he is here so make the best of it, shut your pie holes, and get onboard or change teams to Pittsburgh like all those other traders did in the 70's.
Appreciate all the effort that went in to writing this up. Great stuff there.
Not yet, we've never had the Defense play Offense, and the Offense play Cheerleader, and the Cheerleaders play Defense.
New York = Jobs.
Ohio = Not so much (sadly).
Eleven Warriors - ever wonder where the name of the site comes from? Here are the original lyrics from 1919.
Buckeye Battle Cry:
In old Ohio there’s a team
That’s known thru-out the land;
Eleven warriors, brave and bold,
Whose fame will ever stand.
And when the ball goes over,
Our cheers will reach the sky,
Ohio field will hear again
The Buckeye Battle Cry –
Drive! Drive on down the field,
Men of the scarlet and gray;
Don’t let them thru that line,
We have to win this game today,
Come on, Ohio!
Smash through to victory.
We cheer you as you go:
Our honor defend
We will fight to the end for O-hi-o.
Across The Field
Fight the team across the field,
Show them Ohio’s here
Set the earth reverberating
with a mighty cheer
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Hit them hard and see how they fall;
Never let that team get the ball,
Hail! Hail! the gang’s all here,
So let’s win that
old conference now.
One of, if not the, greatest Buckeye ever to suit up: Chic Harley
Just recently added these very rare Type I photos from 1919.
During his explosive 1984 season, Byars found himself looking up at a 24-0 deficit to Illinois in the Horseshoe on October 13 in front of more than 89,000 uneasy Buckeye fans. Byars turned in an amazing performance to lead Ohio State back, rushing for 274 yards and five touchdowns en route to a 45-38 win.
Byars ignited the crowd with his fourth touchdown of the day, a 67-yard run that featured a cutback at the Illini 35, where Keith threw a shoe and still outran the entire defense for the score.
His fifth touchdown came in the final minute of the game to win it for the Buckeyes. The Shoe went from crypt-silent to pandemonium over the course of the performance. Byars grew stronger and throughout the game and wore down the Illinois defense. It was one of the great comebacks in Ohio State history!
I present THE GAME BALL that was presented to Byars:
Issue was not on the O side of the ball. Our D killed us last year.
Mr. Woodrow (Woody) Hayes and then Assistant Athletic Director J. Edgar Weaver and is a financial assistance agreement for player John C. Martin who was on the 55, 56, and 57 teams.
Now THAT was funny.
He said receiver NOT receiver killer.
Heck, why didn't he at least have the helmets painted scarlet? or put some kids stickers on the sides with snow men, santa clause, or other. Can you imagine... "and today the Buckeyes are wearing their home uniform with Christmas decoration stickers on their helmets".
The statistics from the game are remarkable:
Ohio State had 41 yards of total offense, Michigan 27.
The Buckeyes actually attempted 18 passes, completing just three for 25 yards.
Michigan had no first downs; Ohio State three.
The teams punted a combined 45 times for a total of 1,408 yards.
The team fumbled 10 times but lost only one each.

Recent addition: Vintage Rawlings R5 Official Ohio State Football. Still trying to ascertain the year (era) that this may have been used.
I'm a military guy, so I'm used to hearing it, and telling it, how it is. What's the issue? What's the solution?
I liked Meyer when he was at Utah and although I do not care for Florida I respected them for bring Meyer in and now he is with our Buckeyes. One of the biggest tests for leadership any more is to tell folks how it is and it sounds as if the ol' ball coach doesn't have that problem.
