...which for Tressel meant 94 wins, a bevy of Big Ten titles and the 2002 national championship at Ohio State (the 2010 season was vacated due to sanctions, which eliminated 12 more victories).
Here's the rewrite, because the vacating stuff is a fiction dreamed up by NCAA pencil-necks:
...which for Tressel meant 106 wins, a bevy of Big Ten titles and the 2002 national championship at Ohio State.
That is cool.
Cpt, I see above that you're a Mentor grad. I'm a 1981 grad and Triv was a classmate of mine at the high school, Ridge, and Bellflower. It's been awesome to follow his success.
I like em all...Jurkovec looks very, very special, at another level...Mayden looks like the mirror image of J.T. Barrett...Tatarunas is going to draw a lot of comparisons to Mitch Trubisky, which is probably unfair because Trubisky was a one-of-a-kind player...I love Armstrong's total game, and he has a beautiful throwing motion.
Yep. After that first series, I knew we had a chance to win.
Few -- if any -- OSU d-linemen were held as much as Will Smith was during his career.
Urbz and Jason Garrett -- NE Ohio guys!
I highly recommend the book "Woody's Boys" by Alan Natali. It consists of long interviews with men who played for Woody. Incredible read.
It's not official til we see the dancing banana!
I've always heard that many/most of the NFL guys leave on Friday.
This is the truth. I was at the game. Missouri had been playing well and the crowd was really fired up. But all the Mizzou mojo in the stadium disappeared with Kat's hit. David Boston was a huge mismatch for us in that game, too.
We got Schiano and Oregon hired Hoke.
Cousineau had as much natural talent for playing LB as anyone I've ever seen. What a player.
I saw him wrestle Bob Golic at the district championships in Mentor when they were seniors; everybody there knew they were witnessing greatness.
Any win in Evanston, by any margin, is a good win.
I remember one of the best Evan Turner-led teams losing there. And one of the Jared Sullinger teams required a bucket by Sully in the closing seconds to win.
The sombrero is perfect.
Hah...Bob Griese...typically unintelligible during the second half of telecasts
Woody would be pleased with Frank's work!
Indeed! I would give this multiple upvotes if I could.
Bad move on Campbell's part, IMO. ISU plays second fiddle in a state that doesn't produce much D1 talent.
He's very old school when it comes to dealing with the media...kind of a bully...not a good thing...he seems to want to be Glenn Schembechler.
I read that Rose Bowl has "sole discretion" in choosing B1G team, if league champ is in the playoff. Gotta believe the Rose Bowl committee is wetting themselves at the possibility of getting the Buckeyes this year...ESPN/ABC would want it, too.
That's so beautiful.
During today's game I texted a friend, "I'm having flashbacks to Chuck Stobart and Mike Jacobs offenses."
Chuck Stobart was the offensive coordinator in 1999.
Woody Hayes: "Nothing cleanses the soul like getting the hell kicked out of you."
Our souls are spotless now.
Woody was one of the first college coaches to put names on the back of jerseys. The names debuted with the 1968 uniforms, which were a radical change from the previous uniforms. He even put leaves on the helmet (what the heck?). He put the names on the back because he thought it would help recruiting -- make the parents happy to see the name on the jersey. You can above that we have names on back and Sparty doesn't. I would guess that photo is from 1970.
I bet the traditionalists were hopping mad about the names on the back.
