Charlie Baumann was born and raised in New Jersey, so, probably no.
Having watched this game and my compilation video, I don't think it does justice to how awful Chris Spielman was this game. He had a nice hit or two and that second interception of Jim Everett, but this may have been the worst individual performance of his career and definitely of any Ohio State game in which I've seen him. It's weird to watch (and almost heresy to say out loud). Basically, Rodney Carter, a tailback, got a school receiving record at his expense.
I have it. I just haven't been in a huge rush to do much with it. The tie was a de facto loss that moved Ohio State from the AP no. 1 spot and awarded a national championship to Alabama in a season in which Penn State, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Ohio State were undefeated. Notre Dame beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl but both shared a national championship for the year. Ohio State doing favors for Alabama is a sure way to piss me off (see also: 1980 Rose Bowl).
The game doesn't have a lot of spectator value beyond the M Club Banner incident. I did upload that several years back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xIV4OVADDA
Look at it this way. Earle Bruce's first secondary coach was Pete Carroll. When Carroll left after one season for a DC gig at NC State, he was replaced by Nick Saban from WVU. When Saban was fired, his position was filled by Dom Capers, previously at Tennessee. Not a bad lineage.
Capers left for the USFL after 1983 and was replaced by Gary Blackney, a rather "meh" name in the broad scheme of things.
Btw, Brad Childress was the wide receivers coach for Illinois this game.
I'm still thumbing through my collection. If you know me, you can anticipate that it'll be a random-ass game only I would find interesting. :-P
Still, expect Bruce-era. I'm focusing on two games in particular.
Comments like this are why I love searching for just random Ohio State football games for these features. The demand for games like the 2006 Fiesta Bowl or 2010 Rose Bowl are high (even though we all saw them not long ago and remember them), but I get the best feedback and the best stories from random games against Colorado in 1985, Stanford in 1981, or, here, Louisville in 1991.
We obviously wouldn't want to vote for choice 1, promoting a rival website and all (even if it is the best looking shirt of the 3...).
I wouldn't put it that way considering that Our Honor Defend hasn't been active in a year and a half and the guy who ran it works at Eleven Warriors now. Still, I think it's got my vote for cynical reasons. :-P
Actually, no. 2 is the best choice of a mediocre bunch. I liked last year's options a lot more.
Any silence that must be filled musically can be handled by the professionals—the best damn band in the land. If they need a break, there’s plenty of Steely Dan songs available, or we can break into Vico’s Robbie Dupree albums.
