Nevermind. Mine arrived today (8/22)!
Don't have mine yet on Aug. 20.
Look at that non-conference schedule! BAMA, WASH, TAMU, & COLO! No wonder Earle always lost 3 games! The strength of schedule back in those days (compared to more recently) was off the charts!
Going to Wisconsin and MSU this season. Can't wait! (The away game experience is helped by the fact that our team almost always wins!)
Thanks for this series, Matt. It has become a daily "must read" for me along with DJ's Skull Sessions.
Even though I have watched "Tiebreaker" several times, you really opened my eyes to the argument that the '73 team may have been one of the all-time best at OSU.
You know, ever since 2012 I've felt that undefeated Buckeye teams deserve the same permanent recognition in the Shoe that national championship teams receive.
MSU ranked 4 out of 5 in terms of difficulty?? Wow... How much is Mark Dantonio paying you? You are playing directly into his "disrespect" narrative!
Wait a second.... Is this one of those ESPN-style #hottakes designed to get people to respond? If so, it worked on me.
Quick cals are dumb. If I had seen the Twitter poll, I would have voted "Very Bad."
The Hive > Quick Cals (by a mile).
It was fun to see TBDBITL back in the day! I guess they hadn't introduced the high step for the sousaphone player who dots the i yet.
Love how the old news reels use the word "rooters" instead of "fans." :-)
English is indeed a living language...
"In Week 4, the Buckeyes walloped Indiana 56-0 to remain undefeated. The offense gained 458 total yards and nine different players put points on the board. It would take 30 more years for the Hoosiers to earn a victory in the series.
Ohio State (4–0)..."
Hold on! Didn't you say OSU lost its first game to TCU?
I'm with you, DJ. USC is way overdue for getting dumped. IIRC, we haven't beaten them since the 1969 Rose Bowl. #toolong
My hunch is that the mass exodus of talent from the program indicates that Thad is seriously considering retirement.
I like this news. OSU hockey is on the rise, and having another quality opponent to compete against should elevate the level of play even more.
Saw the women Basketbucks DESTROY Illinois at home, and Kelsey couldn't miss a shot. It was amazing!
I'm going to look into season tickets for next season. This team is destined for big things!
Defense was great until the 3rd period. Then they just ran out of gas.
"I don't think that word means what you think it means."
Sounds like I went to the wrong hockey game! I watched the Blue Jackets get beat by the Penguins when I could have watched the Buckeyes beat the Spartans (something they couldn't do on the football field or the basketball court)!
After watching that Illinois game on Sunday with my daughters, it's hard to believe that same team could lose to *anyone*. On Sunday, the ladies were unbeatable!
Can't we all just agree that the word "gauging" doesn't need a silent U?
I stared at that word in the headline for a while, thinking it had to be wrong. English is dumb. With a silent B.
That last second goal was INSANE! Too bad they couldn't finish. 3 OT losses to the Gophers in 3 games is pretty brutal.
I prefer Stephen Colbert's solution to the NFL lawsuit conundrum: just call it "the Superb Owl."
Last night I went to my first OSU hockey game this season, and it was a blast! This team made me a big fan last night - a young team with great speed and a killer instinct. The improvement this team has undergone this season has been impressive. They should do great things next season!
Nice write-up Aubrey. When we went up 5-3 in the second, I was hopeful that we'd pull off another win against the Bad Guys. But the double penalty to start the third killed us.
Both those clowns should be suspended, because if they pulled something like that at a bar they'd be in jail waiting to see a judge this morning.
Hear, hear! I don't understand why society tolerates fighting among athletes when it does not tolerate it anywhere else. All it would take is a few DAs with balls enough to use the video as evidence, and this whole "it's ok for athletes to fight" exception would be over.
