Not hating on him either, but he also missed a key kick against Northwestern in 2004 in the first OT that lead to a loss.

  Can't make them all.  Of course, 2 weeks after this game Zwick gets benched in the second half, beginning the Troy Smith era.

Comment 18 Jun 2015

With the reckless abandon both played with, I bet Nicky Sualua v Rob Kelly would have been fun to watch in practice in 1995.

Comment 18 Jun 2015

Terry Glenn v. gravity was an awesome matchup too.

Comment 18 Jun 2015

Since Pace was apparently busy taking on Vrable, I think they let Korey Stringer handle Big Dan!

Comment 18 Jun 2015

There was a thread from January about these jerseys.  http://www.elevenwarriors.com/forum/ohio-state-football/2015/01/49290/got-my-championship-jersey-today

I myself ordered 5 of them (1 white, 4 scarlet in all various numbers; I took orders from some friends).  If you get a good seller, they will send you images before they are stitched.

The jerseys were all good quality, especially for the price.  THe "O" on the neck collar was a bit off, but the faux diamond nike swoosh and B1G patches were good.  I asked for them without nameplates so I cannot comment on how the letters come in.

Comment 15 Jun 2015

Correct SM...they stopped retiring numbers but won't unretire any.  Below excerpt is from http://www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/112214aaa.html when Troy was honored.

The No. 10
The number 10 is currently in use by freshman defensive end Jalyn Holmes, from Norfolk, Va., and he will continue to wear that jersey. Moving forward, the Department of Athletics will continue to honor individuals and enshrine jersey numbers of its outstanding performers across its 36-sport intercollegiate athletics program, but jersey numbers will no longer be taken out of circulation. The school's 18 previously retired jersey numbers will remain retired, though, outside of a decision based upon protocols being developed now.

I agree.  ALthough he can still finish second all time with even taking a small step backwards from this past season.  He needs about 1,400 yards to overtake Tim Spencer for 3rd all-time (3,553 TS; 2,140 EE).  He needs to rush for 1629 to overtake Eddie for second all time leading rusher.   He won't catch Archie without a senior season.

Health will be the determining factor.  It will also depend a lot on the QB and how the new OC coaches handle them.  Herman's one fault was that he loved to run the wheels off of his QBs.

Comment 05 Jun 2015

I am getting so tired of this debate/discussion where the fanbase is arguing over Tressel v. Meyer.  How about what happens if OSU hires Glen Mason instead of Tressel...where is the program today?  I know Tressel made a mistake in the way overblown tatgate mess (even though he had nothing to do with the Bobby D issues that the bowl ban/scholarship reduction penalties came from), but the real reason Meyer was able to go on this run was because the cupboard was far from empty when he took over.

Seriously, how lucky are we to follow a hall of fame coach (who won 5 national titles in 8 title game appearances) with another future hall of fame coach with 3 national titles (with hopefully more to come)?  ND, UM, Bama, Texas, etc. all have had major down years following legendary coach tenures.

We replaced a top 5 coach with a top 3 coach.  That never happens.  We are very lucky to have had both men in charge of the program.

Comment 05 Jun 2015

On a 4th and 19 no less.  That was the changing point in the game.  OSU had all of the momentum at that point.

Comment 05 Jun 2015

Ryan's problem is that he can't keep the weight up over the duration of a season due to his metabolism/genetic freakdom.  I don't think its breaking news that he gained some this offseason, as he did the same before his junior year and for the combine.

A lot of steeler fans are already calling him a bust since he was injured most of last year (Tomlin did him no favors by calling his first injury a 'boo-boo').  Its a big year for Ryan to prove he can stay healthy playing in the middle in the NFL.

Comment 04 Jun 2015

Personally, I do all of my research by watching Space:  The Infinite Frontier.

Harry Carey:  That's something else. Hey! Let me ask you, what's your favorite planet?

Mine's the sun. Always has been. I like it cause its like the King of Planets.

Ken Waller: Well, actually Harry, it's not a planet, it's a star.

Harry Caray: Well, planet or star when that thing burns out we're all going to be dead.

Comment 19 May 2015

The spring sale debacle was well documented in another thread with pictures of the 2 dealers who pulled garbage bags out of their pockets to put all of the jerseys that they cleared off of the racks.  They are selling the jersey's on ebay and CL now at a much higher price.

Comment 18 May 2015

Looks like this person is selling the same items on Amazon for a slightly higher price.

I am surprised Matt Cooke's name hasn't appeared yet.

I will put a vote in for Marty McSorley. 

Comment 15 May 2015

If that was the case back then, it certainly isn't now.  Marc Staal used his head as a punching bag with his stick in last years playoffs without one call.  Part of it is the penguins' own doing for getting a reputation as whiners, part of it is the bigger issue with the NHL, who refuses to protect ANY of its stars (like Patrick Kane).  I seriously have never seen a league hate to feature its star players more than the NHL.

I just think the officiating in the NHL is absolute garbage overall and the sport has been suffering from it.  I used to love watching the skill players dominate the sport...now its more about clutching, grabbing, intereference, and laying around the ice to block shots.  The 90's devils fans love today's game.

As an aside, I used to love watching the Avalanch-Red Wings rivalry back in the day... which was the polar opposite of watching that horrificly boring Rags-Caps series.

Comment 15 May 2015

LOL.  Yeah, 2009 when the series PIM were Detroit 45, PIT 93?  Yep, definite favoritism.

Comment 15 May 2015

WHen I visited the Ferrari store in Vegas a few years back, the employee told me Mayweather was there a week prior, walked in, picked out the car he wanted, then grabbed a few stacks of large bills out of a duffel bag and threw it in the air, just to make them pick it up.  For most I would have called bravo sierra, but for him, I believed it totally.

As I stated above, Floyd and Lance Armstrong are my runaway favorites.

Comment 15 May 2015

Fair enough.  The topic is most hated, but different people put different degrees of importance on the word 'hate' - that's all I was getting at - disliking him for his play versus hating him as a person.   

Obviously everyone is definitely entitled to their opinion and I think there are fans of many of the athletes listed in this topic as well.  It all depends on perspective.  The great thing about sports.

Comment 15 May 2015

Maybe because William Buford making a third shot in his 16 attempts could have changed the outcome.

Comment 15 May 2015

I understand hating the media fascination with him, especially during his time in college, but man he is a good dude.  I can't hate him because espIn dedicated its programming around his life.

Comment 15 May 2015

Just look into the Tebow Foundation.

I don't think you need to meet him to judge character, but have ever seen or heard anything negative about his character?  There are certainly a lot worse people in sports that are always in the news for the wrong reasons, including many of his former teammates.
