Interesting stat - Usually these match play events are pretty close, but Arizona State is absolutely crushing Florida. The Sun Devils lead all 5 matches, with two matches already dormie (one is 5-up with 5 to play, the other is 6-up with 6 to play).

Saw that - definitely, pretty rare to see that domination in match play

Looks like the OSU match is going to be tight until the end (though Porvasnik seems to have her match in hand).

Corny Greene.  Easily one of, if not the most over looked buckeye legend in OSU history.  Cool to see him on top of this list.   

Couldn't agree more-- one of the greats for sure. Loved those teams:  Corny, Pete, Archie, Neal Colzie.  I grew up watching those Buckeye teams (my Dad worked at OSU so i went to nearly every home game from '73-'75).  Corny was the man!!

Here is a nice piece from a reputable site (mentions the "Flam 7" personalized license plate!)

Here are some highlights from the '75 UCLA game (video is a mess, but forward about 45 seconds in to see a few highlights)

UM only had 2 players go in the 1st round. They had 4 go in the 3rd round. We both have had 6 players picked.

Thats right -- can't count the Western Michigan guy!

5-2-5? I guess that's one way to get a 5th D lineman on the field. But who's counting?

I've always been a huge Thad supporter (i guess it comes from growing up with the last few Taylor years and Eldon Miller).  I am, however, a bit baffled by the lack of heart/effort/decent foul shooting that seems to be the hallmark of recent Matta teams. And more importantly, its a bit disturbing to see the lack of ownership for those issues from the head coach.  I was also disappointed by the way he threw the Giddens/Harris/Mitchel/Granderstaff class under the bus.  

As we were reminded in today's skull session, this is what he said:

Number one, I'm tired of the B.S. I'm going to coach basketball. I'm going back to running this program the way we did when we got here.

The second thing is, some of you are going to transfer. You don't know it yet, but whatever you do—don't come see me. Just shoot me a text, because I'm tired of looking at you.

And we got rid of some guys we needed to get rid of. We got rid of problems, but we kept solutions.

Thad has to take ownership over that class. I think it was bad form on Thad's part to call them out publicly (I don't care if it was at an event where he didnt expect his comments to get out, if that was the case - he shouldnt have said it).  Losing 4/5 of any class, let alone a highly-rated class, is a complete failure on the coach's part.

Probably. The golf equipment division was never profitable. Even with Tiger's monster brand power, the clubs were viewed as inferior. In my opinion, they were inferior until the last 2-3 years. Maybe better timing would have helped, but golf popularity had a big boom when Tiger burst onto the scene, but has declined ever since. Nike didn't devote the resources in the early years when golf was booming. 

I agree. Nike was in it to dominate and they never gained a significant market share of golf equipment. And that includes Tiger's peak years (and Rory's as well).

Notwithstanding OSU's long history, the Bucks didnt really embrace the passing game in any meaningful manner until 1979 (post Woody).-- plus, for a long time college teams only played 9 or 10 games . Nevertheless, college teams have been playing at least 11 games since the 70s and it shouldnt be that rare for a team with a solid offense, particularly in a 13-14 game season.

How many 1000 yard receivers are there in the history of Ohio State football?

Michael Jenkins 2002

David Boston 1998 

Terry Glenn 1995

Cris Carter 1986

Closest an Urban-led team had to getting one was Samuel this year with 865 yards, followed by Thomas in 2014 with 799

Boston has the best at 1435 with Glenn at 1411

Carter was 50 yards short of doing it twice. Jenkins missed it by 12 yards in 2001. Boston missed a second one by 30 yards. Robiskie and Sanzenbacher were within 100 yards of it in 2007 and 2010, respectively. Galloway had 946 in 1993.

Fun fact: Hopalong Cassady led the 1954 National Champs with 12 catches for 137 yards!
