That 1978 Bowl game was the start of a terrible year for Ohio State. Counting the two bowl games played in that year, OSU was 7-5 in the calendar year of 78. As for Alabama having 10 fumbles, they ran the wishbone offense, and the way it was run in those days it tended to produce many backfield fumbles that were recovered by the offense before the D could penetrate. That being said, it shows the Bucks did not get much push that day with their defensive line. I remember being shocked at the outcome of this game and the conversation after the game was had Woody gotten too old and stubborn to be the coach. This may have been the impetus for Woody to promise Schlichter as starting job as a freshman, to try and display that he, as a coach, was open to try something new, namely a passing offense.
I think that is against Oregon believe it or not. Back in the day they were an on an off non conference opponent.
That sucks. What a pathetic D
I am just tired of watching Michigan lover John Saunders inject his idiotic commentary.
I'm orginally from Reynoldsburg, went to OSU in the 80's, I moved to KC in 1999, lived in Kansas City, MO, moved to the suburbs of Olathe KS for a while, now back in the city again. BEAT WISCONSIN. Go ISU and Georgia Tech!
Other than 2011 Michigan has sucked since 2008. For the sake of the Big 10 it's time for them to get it together. It just isn't the same Michigan week without a strong Michigan team to play.
Bert up on Ole Miss 7=0
I don't know, there are people projecting us at #4 right now and there are still 3 weeks to go. Of course if we lose it is over, but I hope there isn't a scenario where we end up #5.
Best Comment on the board today so far!
Sorry for all the white space, first time embedding a video!
Worst weather games I have been to...1982 Wisconsin, 1991 Iowa, 1995 Illinois
Ohio State - 28 or more points is historically one of the best bets in history, something like over 75 percent. You have to take it when it comes up!
I wonder how many ESPN employees vote in the AP poll. I also wonder if they are "told" how to vote by thier bosses, or maybe they just "understand" the best way to vote to make their own situation better. This system blows worse than back in the '70's when at least people seemingly voted who they thought were the best teams
Worst, most delusional fanbase in all of sports
Dammit, AND William and Mary beat Delaware too...
I woke up this morning expecting to hear about a fat coach being fired, but this is not the one I was thinking of!
I found it interesting that just as I was asking myself Who the hell is Kevin Carter? ESPNU felt the need to put up his bio, so I guess I am not the only one asking that question!
I don't want to jinx it, but it appears the B1G is not shitting the bed this week. I guess that is something.
