Not sure what the Dispatch gains by releasing this other than making Waters look bad. Although nothing he said in this particular tirade was necessarily terrible.
He said bad words. He did not call the kid bad words though. Pretty important distinction.
Stay tuned. Details are being finalized.
You mean like this:
The Bearcats lost 45-17 against Illinois, but destroyed Purdue and Rutgers by a combined score of 94-24.
Literally the last question we asked him. Do you even listen, bro? :)
It's always bittersweet for me to watch old footage of Schlichter. He was the first ever "football hero" of my own. As a kid, Archie's Buckeyes more or less were my dad's. I came of age during the Schlichter years and loved watching Art throw the football.
His much-publicized downward spiral after OSU has affected the way I think about him as a person. But it's still fun to see these films and remember how it felt to be his fan and to cheer on those teams.
Art was the QB for my first OSU game I attended in person in 1980 against Illinois (I was a boy scout there to serve as an usher in C Deck, but I sat on the steps and watched the game instead). It was kind of a big deal, passing-wise:
Not sure that's fair. We'll never know many titles Thad could have won with the tourney like it was back in the day. Ohio State only needed four wins to capture the 1960 national championship. It's harder to win now.
Sorry, I'm having trouble hearing you over the roar of these 17 championships.
Hope Magic got a discount.
At least we'll get to see Evan Turner and Jared Sullinger finally play together. Unfortunately, it will be for the Boston Celtics, the most trash franchise in the NBA. (That last part is ironclad fact.)
Hahaha, you Laker fans (Worst. Franchise. Ever.) slay me. Hater.
I demand a photoshop in which Aaron Craft replaces Patty Smyth on this album cover:
Good point. That did add some buzz to the game and a lot of people expected Michigan to come out and pull off the upset in his honor.
Kent Graham running the option (around the 5:30 mark) had me like:
I don't think I could do those older games justice. I was two years old when the 1968 game was played and have obviously not even seen footage of many of the older contests. As it is, my memory was fuzzy for those early 70s games and YouTube and the internet helped a lot with reminding me. The 1975 game as a whole wasn't great for Buckeye fans, but the sudden change in the fourth quarter turned an otherwise lousy day for us into magic. It was so cool seeing Ray Griffin be the hero since he was obviously in Archie's shadow in many people's minds and Ray's pick is what I remembered most after all these years.
For the record, 2001, 1974 and 2005 were all in very serious consideration for this list.
1987 probably means more to me than it does many (especially our younger readers) because it was my first OSU road game and such an emotional day. Ohio State fans at that time weren't happy with all the 9-3 seasons, but Earle was just so likable that it seemed a shame he got fired. Seeing him hoisted onto his players' shoulders that day was very moving and storming the field in Ann Arbor was surreal.
Bryan Cook killed a guy at the 7:30 mark. Holy cow.
BAH GAWD, IS THAT STEVE PHYSIOC'S MUSIC?
1. Buckeye sports (primarily football and hoops, but also hockey, women's hoops and anything I can find on TV)
2. Progressive rock (particularly Genesis, Rush, Porcupine Tree and Spock's Beard)
3. Soccer (particularly the USMNT, Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, AS Roma, Celtic, Columbus Crew, and Orlando City)
3a. Tribe baseball
I miss Rax and Burger Chef.
I am old. Get off my lawn.
