Lot's of memories from that area.  Working at Fly Pie, buying books and discounted Champion sweatshirts at Long's.  Bernies's was one of my favorites and where I truly learned to appreciate good beer,  

change isn't always bad, but  I do feel bad for the smaller business that will be priced out of these upscale projects.  Even though Campus Partners say they want to include these groups, most will not be able to afford the higher rent,

Amir plays like someone who truly does not care and would rather be anywhere but the basketball court.

The 02 game got really loud at the end, but there seemed to be things keeping that crowd  from hitting that next level.  Michigan kept converting one third down after another.  Add in the fact that many were also on pins and needles waiting for the 90's to make an appearance.

The 60,000 left in the Shoe that day were the loudest crowd I have been part of.  85 Iowa and 95 ND are close seconds.

While the Baer might be the best, Arnie will always be the King.  He is one of the greatest ambassadors of the game, and while he might not have won as many times as Jack, his swashbuckling style of play created an excitement that turned on TV sets and drew legions of fans.  Even in Jack's heyday, "Arnie's Army" was the the largest and most enthusiastic group on the course.  It also doesn't hurt to have numerous President's consider you their golfing partner.  

If you ever get a chance HBO (I think) did a great documentary on the 1960 U.S. Open.  I believe it was Jack's first.  It was Hogan's swan song and it was Arnie's greatest victory,  as a kid, I always remember that my dad liked Jack, be he and all his friends loved Arnie.

Pace not getting in is certainly a disappointment.  One of the most dominant players of my lifetime.  Granted, like some of you, my perception is based more on his career as a Buckeye.  Once I started having kids, Sunday's became the day I had to do all of the things I did not do on Saturday.  A man has to have his priorities and the NFL is not one of them .

 of course we get the typical UM/PSU excuse.....everybody but those of us in the ivory tower is cheating.....LOFL,

Comment 16 Jan 2015

MGoblog was funny yesterday.  Everytime someone ripped Cardale for the presser, another M fan responded with an example of one of their guys doing the same thing.  Cardale was not the first, and he certainly won't be the last to "announce" he is coming back.  Do I think that maybe the way it was handled was influenced by others? Sure, but if the benefit was a lesson for kids in Cleveland, then I am good with that.

Trev was definitely the target back in 02.  May was an after thought.  I ran into Dan Patrick and one of the other talking heads after the game and remember telling him to say hi to Trev from Buckeye Nation.

Nice piece Ramzy.

my only recollection of 68' was my father telling me that was Ohio and your team.  At just a little more than 6' I was not quite there yet.  I certainly remember the disappointments that followed.  76 especially is the one I wish I could change for Woody.

i have had the immense fortune to be at most of the biggies in person.  somebody already said it, 02 was a release of a lot of pent up emotion and baggage.  I was in the opposite end, so had a much better view of the PI than I did the final play.  I didn't black out but remember trying to calm myself because I was so high, I felt I was getting short of breath.

Monday was pure joy.  Something that for months was so unexpected, you felt that you were playing with house money.  Theight ended up the up the same both times.  In Tempe it was falling asleep on the hotel floor watching repeats of Sports Center, and this time it was flipping back and forth from ESPN and BTN.  Good Times!

They are an interesting fan base.  The fashion sense of the LSU freak show combined with the ignorant delusion of the Miami Hurricane faithful.  Was waiting in line to go in and had some Ducks in front of me.  I get where Hurricane fans would get their arrogant air of invincibility, but I have no clue as to where the Duck fans would get the confidence that they are the best.  

PS I hate Jerry World.  Give me the Rose Bowl any day

Comment 11 Jan 2015

Couldn't agree more.  Seasons like this year and 2002 are the best.  Seasons like 06 are to be savored, but are harder to enjoy because expectations are so high and perfection and the number one ranking keep you on the knifes edge each week.  Getting that blemish out of the way early in the year, I think freed this team (and the fan base) of some of that pressure.  They were given time to grow and develope and I am not sure if the front runner pressure ever really became a factor.  We hae been the dogs since things got interesting and with Urban as coach, that is the best place to be.

Comment 07 Jan 2015

I would hope that OSU fans are smart enough to realize that perfection is not possible every year.  Even Woody had his 6-3 campaigns.  Keeping us competitive, winning Big 10 Championships (beating Michigan 75% of the time) and being in Playoff contention most years will be realistic.  NC's will come if you make the 4 team field.  

That being said, Urban's worst enemy tends to be himself.

Headed to Dallas Sunday night.  In a weird way, I feel lucky I got my tickets for face value. We paid about the same in 02' but didn't quite feel we were getting gouged.  My buddy who lives down there told me to get ready for more pain.  Parking at Jerryworld is in the area of $100 and the prices don't get much better once you get in.  He also knows that I am a traditionalist (consider the Rose Bowl the Mecca) and that I will hate the stadium which he says is more like a night club than a football venue.  In the end, once the Bucks win, all will be right with the world.
