The most deserving RB that never received the Heisman... I am a little biased though.

I was a the Illinois game also.  One of my favorite Buckeye memories was the shoeless TD.  I loved his post game interview when asked about it, he said he had to score because he was afraid he was going to get his foot stepped on.

November 21, 1992... My Freshman year at tOSU.  Yes I experienced some of of the greatest game experiences and athletes in OSU lure during my collegiate years.  Some of my fondest memories stomping ND and Penn State.  Complete blowouts of conference opponents.  The jubilation of finally beating the scUM.  I also witnessed the lowest of lows with Cooper at the helm.  Of course we can't forget Cooper's complete failure to understand the importance of The Game, until at least it cost him his job.  Which by the way his record, Ohio State won-loss record: 111–43–4  would be something the scUM would love to have their current coach come close to.

Out of all the losses, upsets, and frustrations, November 21, 1992 and 13-13 has been etched in my mind forever.  I have walked out of the Shoe feeling the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, but that day was nothing I have ever felt before.  I can't even put words to what the stadium, campus, and of course High St. felt like after 13-13.  I might describe it like actually walking through a Zombie movie.  No one knowing quite what to say.  We didn't lose again, we didn't win (unless you listened to Gee who said the tie was one of our greatest victories).  We all knew that it meant Cooper would be back another year.   To this day, I search for the words to describe Nov. 21, 1992.

Since I live in North Carolina now, does that make me a "Deep South Buckeye" or do I need to move to Alabama for that?

Please don't start a fire to burn them out!  Not that I have any fondness to the fuzzy rats, but because chances are there is a hole in the chimney somewhere that is allowing entry (unless they are entering through the top.)  If you burn them out there is a chance you will burn the house down if an ember escapes through the entry hole.  Although cruel and at the same time mildly comical, there is also a chance that the chipmunks could catch fire, and go running through the house leaving a trail of flames.  Seriously though, a mouse poison like decon can work well as after they eat it, it causes internal bleeding and they start searching for a water source outside at which point they die.

Pease explain this to my wife! I hear all the time just DVR it.  Uhhhh...No... just take a picture of me and set it at my place at your mother's Thanksgiving dinner table.  THE GAME is on and I am watching it live!  And btw you can watch it again with me when you get home, cause I am recording it

I know this is being done to keep up with the rest of the college football world and maintain our recruiting stature, but with big name recruits with visits and camps before the renovations are to be completed, could it have an adverse effect on recruiting?  "Here is a picture of what your locker room and indoor training facilities will look like once completed!" just doesn't seem to have the same excitement and impact as actually standing in the greatness of completed facilities.

Thank God the south end isn't being closed... I was afraid of that when I heard they were adding seats above the tunnels.  I still miss the open bleachers.  Nothing like watching a game with the wind whipping through them.  Against PSU once I swear it rained, sleeted, and snowed all at the same time.
