The OSU/Rutgers trophy should either be called "The Gray Knight" or "The Nut Knight."
Shaping up to be very memorable season for our beloved Puckeyes! Can't wait for Big Ten play to start...
As a philosophy major, I love your (hedonistic) utilitarian argument for a Penn State win last night. :-)
(The only problem is that you could make the same argument every week...)
Bought a 4-game package for conference games this season. Can't wait to take my family to see the Puckeyes this season! #GoBucks!
Thanks, Matt! Great series!
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.
