My recollection is that 1975 Brutus did not last long at all. The Giant Brutus Head re-appeared to a standing ovation shortly after the introduction of that abomination!
It makes me feel very old when the "old timey" photo of OSU's campus that leads off the Skull Session corresponds to a period when I attended OSU!
Nice post. How about a favorite 75 dead show rec tiboot? Ha
Ha. not much to go on for '75 Dead (only 4 shows that year). Only one i have is One from the Vault - Great American Music Hall (though i have part of one of the other shows from that year). On the other hand, I can recommend plenty of '72 or '77 shows, which i think were their best years (basically, anything from May 1977 or the European 72 shows). Also, i have a personal attachment to the April 1978 show i attended at Vets in Columbus!
Upvote for, quite possibly, the best Eastbound and Down episode ever!
Is this John Elway?
---If Ohio State ever plays Stanford in the Rose Bowl I will be rooting for Stanford. Although I rarely do so, I can legitimately refer to the Cardinal as 'we'.
- I've never actually heard anyone from Ohio State say "THE," only from others trying to make fun of it. I've created a rule in my head that it's either "Ohio State" or "The Ohio State University". "The Ohio State" and "Ohio State University" are incorrect, and any emphasis on "The" is pretentious.
I agree with this one as well. I think the university started focusing on this around the time i graduated ('87). I've never used it. Not once. And i find it embarrassing.
Also, more confessions - I didnt mind it when some of the Cooper teams and later Tres teams had a thug reputation. I also dont mind when the coaches make exceptions for talented players who run into discipline issues (Tres would have played both Roby and Carlos every game last year).
I think Michigan's "Those who stay will be champions" is pretty cool.
I agree but its even cooler to say "Those who stay will be 7-6"
I don't like message boards, especially Ohio State ones. Seeing words like scUM, Missagain, Noter Dumb and replacing the S with a $ in any school's initials makes my eyes roll back in my head far enough to see where my mullet would be if I was dopey enough to call Ohio State's opponents such mildly condescending and uncreative names.
^this x1000. In that regard, I've been a Buckeye fan since 1970, graduated from OSU, attended every home game from '73 to 87, never miss a game and my confession is that I've never once used the terms "Team up North", "TTUN", "ScUM", etc. I find "scUM" to be particularly silly.
Other confessions - I do think that On Wisconsin, Hail to the Victors, ND fight song and Fight On (USC) are all great, even though i hate each one of those teams. Also, Michigan's helmets are cool (but the bumble bee uniforms suck). Camp Randall looks like an awesome place. Fortunately, i find nothing to admire with respect to Penn State (always thought Paterno was a pompous ass)
There is a story about Daly at a pro am, putting on a driving exhibition. There was stadium seating behind him. He tee'd it up but turned around to face the crowd and drove it over their heads. Had he been a little off, he could have killed someone.
“Show me a man who plays a good game of golf and I'll show you a man who is neglecting something - John F Kennedy”
We will call it a draw
it doesnt matter. Two unrelated stories. But if it were me, I'd knock the movie out first. Then binge watch the TV show.
Movie is great!!!! Don't like shows based movies, but will give a peek
I am usually in that boat as well, but this show is so good. And it actually seems to be simply "inspired" by the tone of the movie (totally different story so far). Really, really good show.
Truth be told, a Tatoo version would be a little humorous.
For Tatgate--or at least that era, we need to rely on the awesome LSUfreek:
as mentioned above-- clearly a room service menu
Urban will get his; its way early. Someone really smart (Jeremy) said the following the other day, which i think says it all:
"Now, here's the real "concept" I want you to take away from this: Ohio State is not recruiting against Penn State. Ohio State is recruiting against Alabama and Florida State. Penn State is making a lot of noise right now, but these things have a way of leveling off (See: Michigan, University of, 2012-2013.) I know I've said it before, but I feel at this point it's imperative to reiterate: trust Urban Meyer, and trust his staff. Follow the plan."
Wow - 64% from the line. The Bucks make a lot of games close with poor FT shooting.
This seems like a typical 2014 Buckeye game -- sloppy, make a run, give points back, make poor decisions, make it closer than it should be. This has been a frustrating team to watch. I've been hoping that Thad pulls out his usual Big Ten tourney magic and the Bucks make a nice run; its not too late, but I wont be surprised if it doesnt happen.
nice little run there
Missile Command (good choice DWCbuckeye)
Whatever the name of the NBA basketball arcade game they used to have in the Ohio Union in the mid-80s!
I know what you're all thinking: "Jeremy, are you setting us up for a disappointment with Jamarco Jones?"
No, I am not. I mean, yes, maybe I am? Maybe I am asking you to prepare yourself for that possibility so that if it were to occur every Buckeye fan reading this will handle themselves appropriately via social media and other avenues? Simply put, don't be that guy. You know, the guy who embarrasses himself and the team he "represents" by calling out a teenager on Twitter? Yeah, him.
I hope Marcus gets the help he needs. I'm not sure cutting him loose is the right thing to do here (but obviously, i dont have all of the facts). I do hope that people read this interview and remember that this is someone's son before making any nasty comments. I know i did a lot of dumb things when I was younger - i just didnt do them under a microscope.
