Jack Tatum vs. a Snow Plow...Tatum would win every time!
I seem to remember Stan White, a linebacker, who either in 68 or 69 ended up being the place kicker after a team tryout. Jack Tatum was awesome then as well, although with the new rules, I wonder if his hits would be allowable today. Alan Jack was the starting offensive guard who was about 218 pounds and had been a fullback at Wintersville (Ohio) High School. Rex Kern was unbelievable at the fake hand off...TV cameramen often followed the wrong guy. The other thing that is wild was that there were only 9 games and then the Rose Bowl. The band was also all male and all "brass", although I never knew what that meant.
1968 was my freshman year...what a team. There was a starting offensive guard on that National Championship Team who, if memory serves me, was listed as 218 pounds. Purdue, I seem to remember was ranked #1 until we beat them that year. Things have certainly changed. I also remember, at least I have foggy/3.2 beer impaired memories, of kids carrying goal posts down High Street to the Capital building.
OSU vs. NC State on September 13, 2003. Was there with my best friend from my OSU days (1968 was a great year to be a Buckeye), and our wives. Phillip Rivers put on a show (36 completions of 52 attempts), but we won in triple overtime 44-38. Craig Krenzel was 26 of 36 in passing. The first overtime game in the history of Ohio Stadium per ESPN.
How about Alan Hornyak? (From the same part of the state as Havlicek.)
