Yeah, would be kind of neat if Howard Jones stayed at Ohio St. for more than one year. His 1910 team did tie ttun 3 - 3. He does have 5 National Titles to his credit, one at Yale and 4 at USC. Go Bucks beat tsun !

Someone make a movie off of this script. I visually saw this conversation in my head.
This piece needed Woody and Earle "Force Ghosts" too
Leave one wolf alive....and the sheep are never safe
I thought about adding them but ultimately decided against it, because when you have Bollman's input, do you really need anything else?
when you have Bollman's input, do you really need anything else?
my exact first thought
It would be cool if something like that really happened. Well, leave out Cooper and Bollman.
DEPT OF 'IT'LL BE A COLD DAY IN TOASTYLAND'
"IF"... "something like" ..."really happened"?
Why... then it would 'be real'...!
'Like'... as in 'on purpose'?
IF so, this 'can't be' be cause wee all no 'stuff happens'...
so 'we' are not responsible or accountable... except to tell 'them'... 'they are'.

Not the piece we knew we wanted, but definitely the piece we needed! Absolutely hilarious
Cooper takes a lot of shit around here, but he is still a Buckeye to his core. On top of that, he is a really really nice guy.
The only thing I can't seem to wrap my head around is ketchup being too spicy for Jim Bollman (if it were true, he'd refer to it as catsup).
Needed a good laugh to close the morning.
I had to run away high, so I wouldn't come home low...
"Only ... the Lonely..." ?
Agree, Hov, "I needed a good laugh" this morning.
a "good" laugh, only comes when i look into my mirror...
a nuther kinda laff... comes at the expense of others.
I outta no... i have 'too much experience' at the latter kind.
The "Dave" entry in your playbook must read like poetry, '68.
that's worth several laughs, Hov....
I have many miserable memories of November days in the 1990's.....but no matter, Coop is an honorable, pleasant man, a great recruiter and a hall of fame level coach. If only he could have overcome his one tragic flaw, to consistently beat the rival up north.
hmmm ...not ...quite?
IF ONLY I could overcome my one good point... i'd be... perfectly bad.
['dead against' finding The Good Point... it's too hard for me to recognize what is 'not mine']
Cooper was not all he seemed to be. To the public, he was gracious, with his teams not so much.
I talked to a guy in the Detroit airport who was a walk-on under both Cooper and Tressel. I asked about the difference between the two. He said that Cooper could be a raging a-hole if you happened to accidentally step on the field during practice. He supposedly treated the walk-ons like trash. In contrast, he said that Tressel was gracious to everyone. Tressel memorized every player's nickname and would greet you with that walking down the hall, no matter what your position on the team.
With Urban, he was pretty transparent in this day and age of social media. It was, "You're performing to expectations or your not", but he would heap praise on any players that worked their butts off, and he would show true compassion, e.g. Devin Bogard.

More of these. Gotta lighten it up every once in a while.

BE27 - i'm very confused about this 'light' you mention.
Just read again that once, shortly after some strange thing called The Transfiguration, the biggest, toughest, most ardent top dog follower told That Guy not to goto town because the real leaders would kill him.
The Guy, rather than take some rather accurate and stark advice from his 'best guy' and later top leader on the planet...
"Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me!"
what a strange guy, who not only wouldn't take the gotoGuy's advice, but rebuked him in public for courageously 'stepping up' with very common sense advice!
...now we must stop here or wee mite 'cross that line' into Ban Territory... and there's only... 'One Life to Live' ... at stake....
BE27... agree we need to 'lighten up' ... so can you 'shed some light' on why the strange guy said this? TIA.....
Kudos on the "so forth".
"took a labored seat next to Tressel" - That's cold, stone cold. But funny as hell.
I figured Bollman's only lines would've been "coo coo ca choo."
Bowled me over, AcBuckeye -

Hello, is that you Ramzy?
Like Shakespeare, do we discuss who was the author, really?
Ua Mau ke Ea o ka 'Aina I ka Pono. The life of the land is preserved in righteousness. (Hawai'i state motto) Aloha nui kakou.
My scriptwriting skills are limited to cartoonish, cheeky humor. This is English Patient-level dramatic prose I am incapable of conceiving or creating.
This claim just adds fuel to the fire of controversy.
I'm a screenwriter by trade, Ramzy. If you have the story, I can write the script.

The back & forth between Meyer & Tressel was brutal.
Great write up and so forth.
A delightful slice of Buckeye folklore, thank you!
Very cool idea and article. Enjoyed reading it and hope to see this type of format again.

Could you have made it anymore uncomfortable with the pictorial. Lol, well done

Great article. So ready for College Football season. Would of loved to be sitting in the bleachers listening.
Highlight of the day....although it will fall to a distant second if our dog makes it out of surgery today in Cbus.
