Thank you, Chic for helping create this wonderful thing called Ohio State Football. I tend to root for underdogs when watching sports, but I am very happy and lucky to be able to root for a perennial powerhouse in College Football.
He slid down on the turf.......after running around for 8-9 seconds with millions of Buckeye fans yelling at him to "GET DOWN!!"
That play and the INT at the end of the Sugar Bowl. Not too many guys make multiple "iconic" plays in their career. And still have 2 years of eligibility left.
What a catch! And a 2-pt conversion for the tie!
Another reason to root for blowouts this year so we can see guys like Smith get on the field.
Give me this over Preseason NFL any day.
Powell is not the best player on our D, but he appears to be a good leader and you would expect that he would continue to improve year to year. You gotta love his personality so I am rooting for him to become a great safety this year.
Beautiful. A lot of OSU fans don't like Musberger but I am not one of them.
Missed the beginning. Did Musberger give it the "You are looking LIVE......"?
Great article! I could never bring myself to hate Clarrett and I am so happy with what he has done with his life. Hopefully, at some point, he is welcomed back to The Ohio State Football program. Urban will do it when it's exactly the right time.
No one has mentioned him so I will....I was at Ohio State when Joey Galloway played for the Buckeyes. It would look like someone had the angle on him in the open field and he would turn on the jets and be gone!
Go Cougars! Here's hoping that they make it on TV plenty this year (when the Buckeyes are not playing).
Proud to have this group of guys represent The Ohio State University.
I am so ready for Football but this has been the best "Off-Season" ever. (Except for Noah's injury)
Just stay away from our Coaching Staff, Illini!
I feel bad for whichever QB is not named the starter, and will be rooting for epic beatdowns each week so that the backup gets to play....a lot
I saw the topic and was going to make the same comment until I saw yours.
Almost had Penn State at 6-2 but just couldn't do it. Can't see that big of a jump for them.
What a great opener for us! I can't imagine a better team to open this season with. I would love to see us destroy them but I have a feeling it will be close for at least the first half.
Exactly where was Tyvis Powell going after that INT? Was he thinking 102-yd pick six?
With that INT and the 2-pt conversion INT vs. TTUN, he has a place in OSU history forever.
UFM has admitted that the Coaching Staff failed the players in this game, and I look at this game is a necessity for the improvement of the team we saw for the rest of the year. I just hope we beat VT about 38-10 this year to erase all bad memories of this game.
SLANT! SLANT! I yelled for it all night, they finally did it and got a TD, and then didn't do it again the rest of the night.
Very happy that Clarrett has gotten his life together and is helping others.
Among True Freshman RBs at OSU, he is the best i have ever seen. Robert Smith is probably second. I was just a little too young to remember Archie or Pete Johnson as Freshmen.
Great name from the past. I started watching OSU in the 70s and remembered him, but he is not a player talked about much. Hicks, Lachey, Pace get most of he attention.
I love watching Urban and his staff coach this team. Hope a lot of potential recruits are watching this as well.
