yep - all played in the NFL. Mark Krerowicz was also drafted but only played in three games for the Browns (i had to look it up!).
So much talent on that team.
First, I totally agree with "We Built this City"-- absolutely horrible song.
Others that should be on the list:
I know others will disagree, but I think "Heart of Rock n Roll' by huey lewis is an awful song (if you want a good song that mentions Cleveland, listen to Cleveland Rocks.
Wasnt thrilled with most of Phil Collins' work.
The aforementioned Billy Squier - Rock me tonight
Lionel Richie had a hand in ruining the 80s (dancing on the ceiling and "hello" were particularly bad)
Wham was horrible.
Paul McCartney should be embarrassed by Ebony and Ivory and say say say
"We are the world" was a bad song
Here is a bonus bad song (came out in '91) (he also ruined a Lou Reed song the next year)
That is the start of Buckeye heartbreak for me. Those Archie/Corny Greene teams (72-75) should have had 2 titles and they had none. From '68-79, OSU won one NCAA national championship and lost 4 games to end the season that would have given them additional titles ('69, '70, '75 and '79). That doesn't even count '73, which was one of OSU's all-time greatest teams and went 10-0-1, with a pummeling of USC in Rose Bowl (that tie against Mich cost them).
That '80 team was sick. C. Kellogg, Herbie Williams, Kelvin Ramsey, Carter Scott and Jim Smith. Destroyed ASU (featuring Byron Scott) in the second round and then got dumped by eventual runner up UCLA in the sweet 16, coached by Larry Brown (what a surprise, the the 1980 NCAA runner up title was vacated due to cheating scandal).
Yep - OSU underachieved all decade. I'm sure Earle is a good man and i know he loves the Buckeyes, but a mediocre coach in my opinion. '84 team was totally loaded and it went 9-3 with a bowl loss and losses to a 5-loss purdue team and 4-loss wisconsin team.
'84 Bucks - Lots of NFL talent on that team. Byars was best player in the country, Tomzcack - solid college QB. OL was loaded, included Lachey. C Carter was a beast. Speaking of which. Defense had Pepper johnson, Spielman, Kumerow, W. White, Terry White.
did we win?
The Coaches didn't trust Cardale enough to throw it on 3rd and 10 at the end of the game
For a minute, I thought you wanted to buy Penn State's shoes!
What do you mean what went wrong? did we win? did we win? did we win?
Players like them, Coaches like them, recruits like them. Sounds good to me. And I'm an old guy (sort of) - been following the Bucks since 1970, when i was 7. I think they are sweet, though i would have gone with the grey /white striped sleeves!
"Black is black...I want my baby back" ...Roy Orborson
Not sure what he has to do with that song
Saw the Police at Richfield in '83 (Bowie the next night). They were a great band. I respect the fact that they left when they were at a peak. And the reunion tour was fun
Only teams I really dislike: Michigan, Penn State, Wisconsin, Arkansas (so long as Bert is there), ND. I am starting to dislike Baylor
They did it for the soundtrack to this movie, which was a remake of the 1960 Goddard film.
Here is a cool cover of Breathless by X from '83 (on Letterman)
Another interesting piece of trivia -- Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and country music performer Mickey Gilley are both cousins of Jerry Lee Lewis.
One of the best concerts i ever saw was Bruce at Vets in 1978 on his Darkness tour.
This is Bruce in his prime:
It's by far one of the gravest insults you could hurl at a program that has any sort of academic standards.
That is why i said "from a pure football perspective"
Afterwards, these clowns started calling in and saying that OSU was an SEC team in the B1G which I personally take offense to. Absurd.
From a pure football perspective, i take this as a compliment. OSU is playing a different game than the rest of the Big Ten in every respect and to be compared to fast, athletic and successful teams is praise to me. I know the SEC took some bad losses during the bowl season (I only cared about one of those games) but you can't ignore the success of the last 9 years.
I was going to a meeting that morning around 15 blocks from the Towers. I was in a conference room with a direct view of the towers and saw the second plane hit. The fireball was massive. Given that there was likely no way for me to get home other than walking 80 blocks uptown, i decided to stay put until the crowds thinned out, which meant i also saw both towers go down. The debris cloud looked like it might reach the Statue of Liberty. Very chilling to see fighter planes in the sky and a mass of people walking up the west side highway. All of it was horrible to see and I wish i hadnt seen any of those things.
On the first anniversary, i woke up at around 430 AM because there were red lights shining in my apartment. i looked out my window and saw a solemn procession of firetrucks, bagpipes and firemen marching all the way down broadway to Ground Zero (i was in the 80s on Broadway). It was a very moving sight.
I like these helmets:
