I do feel bad for Morris and Gardner to a point. That line is so bad and those 2 are taking a beating back there. Morris was clearly hurt and the staff did very little to protect him. I'm a coach and I find it pathetic that they allowed Morris to go back in there. Where's the medical staff at? It was comical watching the 3rd string QB looking for his helmet. Makes you think maybe he misplaced it on purpose so he didn't have to go in and get drilled like the other 2.

So so ready for some football. Thank goodness for high school scrimmage tomorrow morning to get my football fever relieved a little.

I was treated okay inside the stadium in Madison but taunted a lot in the parking lot after the game. Overall it was okay. I want to do more traveling to away venues as I age but as of now I have kids who have sporting events on Saturday's.

I'm getting old to remember specific plays:

but one that really stands out would be the shoeless run by Keith Byars

will Allen's interception to end the 2002 game.

i remember JoePa leaving the field early wondering at the time what's going on? Found out later. Lol

whole game upset vs. then number 1 ranked Iowa.

so many memories with my dad and his friends going to games. Used to be my favorite thing to do growing up was getting up early on fall Saturdays and head to the shoe with them.

We used to take our high school basketball team over to Terry White's hometown for summer league on the outdoor courts at the park and he would referee games there. Man could he hit.

Otis and brockingham I remember them more from their nfl trading cards not as buckeyes. I wish I could see old games with chic and hop playing. How could I forget about Ron springs since I was a fan of his in the pros. The TD PIttman scored to seal the against our rivals was a cool moment and he could play. I loved watching Pete Johnson play for the bengals. List could go on and on. It would be fun to compare us with other schools for RB U. I liked John woolridge (spelling) back in the day.

We have been blessed over the years with great backs here. My earliest memories were Archie so that's where I started. Another excellent one I could have put as HM is Vince Workman.

Mo. Clarett could have been there with his 1 great year which led to the National Championship but its a tough list with great players.

I thought you were a lock for Kentucky's site. At least that's what I have been hearing.

Love these type of discussions reliving great times as a kid at the shoe. Funny story from the LSU comeback. My family friend got 4 season tickets every year as a big wig for a local company and we went every game. We were sitting by this Japanese guy who was in the ohio state athletics box seats and was the president of some  japanese car company. My friend high fived  this man after the winning TD and he went tumplining down the steps just rolling about 5 rows. Hopped up and kept high fiving the crowd. The Illinois game was priceless also with the performance of the man Keith Byars. "Holy Buckeye" win vs Purdue was special. Comeback win vs Minnesota was cool.

My favorite comeback was in the late 80's at home vs LSU. A number of fans left early but the shoe was as loud as I can remember for the buckeye game in the 2nd half as OSU came from behind and won. I remember we ran into friends after the game who left early and were ticked off and didn't know about the win. Thought OSU lost and were even more ticked when they found out what happened the 4th quarter.

Rode coasters 15 times yesterday with my 11 year old daughter  including the beast twice, diamondback, and the newest one banshee at night twice. That ride was awesome. Road the water rides with a few friends we saw at the park (thanks for riding friends). Great memories made yesterday at kings island. Now FNL time and as always Go Bucks!!!

I was a senior in high school and still regard that as my favorite game I ever saw at Ohio Stadium. Iowa number 1 in the nation and Ohio State had the longest hoe winning streak in America. Great game, remember storming the field afterwards.

Comment 23 Jul 2014

Sorry to say but we messed up the date for our wedding and got married on the day of the game. November 21, 1998. Preacher gave score updates during wedding. We played buckeye marching band music, had tv's for reception instead of music. Watched the whole 2nd half with family and friends. This was one of coop' s few wins vs that team up north. Became a big joke and still is. Everyone still says we need to renew that day since we won. We get credit for coop's win from many.

I'm interested in attending this year also just to take it in. Football mood big time right now. Is there a section that 11W folks sit in?

Comment 20 Jul 2014

I have great memories Keith Byars at OSU. I remember the run and for that matter that game. One incredible game for him rushing. We were getting pounded by Illinois and the shoe was filled with the boo birds then #41 took over and victory was in hand. I remember meeting his dad at a tailgate before a game. He was an outstanding basketball player also at Dayton Roth which later consolidated into Dayton Dunbar. Saw him play at the state basketball tourney.
