  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

Soapbox aside: Please don't tell me to "take it one game at a time," either. This may shock some people due to my wealth of football knowledge, but I'm not on the team nor involved in any of its preparation

I was cautiously optimistic that the Buckeyes could look like the team we saw in the last two games of the '15 season. Having passed the Norman test with flying colors, I'm now wildly optimistic that we end up in the top 2.  It's the beauty of being a Fan, I don't have to temper expectations. (Beause a loss is going to be crushing no matter my expectation)

Yes - Les isn't going to take a demotion to coordinator anyway. There are plenty of schools that would give him another HC opportunity.

Back in the day, living in NE Ohio, you could only listen to the Buckeyes on the radio for most of their games. I believe there was a 2 game limit on annual tv appearances (not counting a bowl game). And literally the only bowl game for the Buckeyes and Big10 was the Rose, so it was win or stay home.. I don't have any recollection of '68, but I knew by '74 that I only wanted to go to school at Ohio State so I could watch as many Buckeye games as possible.  Got there in '78, Woody's last year, Art's first. There's nothing quite like a fall Saturday in the Shoe!
