Are you the devil? Who would make a person pick between so many options?
He did say he had been waiting for his wife for an hour. To some of us, that could be construed as it's own sort of Hell. So you may have a point -

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.
If you're going the NFL route I'd rather Have:
Joe Montana, Roger Craig, Jerry Rice and John Taylor.
Also Brady, Moss and Welker was special Altho the law-firm benjarvis green-ellis was the RB
Also Kurt Warner, Marshall faulk, torry Holt and Isaac bruce
You would be correct with any of the ones you mentioned KicksButt. Those early 90 Cowboys teams I hold deep in my heart because I lived in Arlington,Texas during their dynasty and they created and helped mold my love for the game of football.
75 - Archie
84 - Byars, CC & Lanese = Wow (plus Byars should have won the Heisman.
95 - Eddie George, Heisman
02 - Natty
06 - Troy Smith, Heisman
I too am waiting on my wife; and I remember each of these teams and being very enthralled by each during their season...but in 2014, because of the success in the face of the extreme odds, and overcoming those obstacles...I will have to look into it, but I do not recall any team facing so much, only to rise to the highest pinnacle as a Unit/Team! And to watch it with my sons as my peers instead of just as unlearned children, makes it very special!
Then, for various emotional and historical reasons:
2002, 1984, 2005, 1979 - but that is a real stretch at trying to conform to Ohioscott's request
Rex Kern is my favorite Buckeye. But the J.T./Cardale - Zeke - Devin - Michael combo is tempting because its so fresh. Not to be picky - but technically, Evan Spencer was a starting wide receiver. It was really more of a rotation, in any case.
If I really had to choose, though - I suppose I'd go with the most recent bunch.
By the way - in anticipation of a huge year from Michael Thomas, I've decided to start calling him "Open Mike". Any thoughts?
For me I'll take the 14, 02, and 68 teams, they all won National Championships, after them I'd add the 05 and 84 teams.
Just got home and checked this before heading out again. I was hoping it would give some people fits trying to choose a top 5. It did me.
After all these 15 teams include...
-Three National Championship teams - 68, 02, 14
-The 75 & 79 teams were undefeated until losing in the Rose Bowl
-Four one loss Bowl winning teams - 93, 96, 98,10
-The BCS Championship Game teams of 06 and 07
-The 05 team that spanked ND in the Fiesta with two close losses to Texas and Penn St
-The 95 team which beat 6 ranked in route to an 11-0 start before losing to ttun and Tenn in the Citrus
-The wounds have still not healed from 2013's 12-0 team that lost to Sparty and Clemson to finish.
-That just leaves the 84 team which was smack dab in the middle of the famous Earle Bruce 7x3 run. To be honest I just wanted to give Tomzcak, Byars, and Carter some love.

Did you add the boeckman and Jackson years to be funny?
LOL, I was wondering when Boeckman would come up. He takes a lot of heat from posters around here and I am one of them, but he was having a solid year that year until he blew up against Illinois, then we won in spite of him against ttun (thanks D and Beanie), finally, we all remember the 2 picks and fumble in the Natty.
But still, we got there and I have lived through worse, much worse, Greg Hare, Steve Belisorry, and Justin Zwick all come to mind.
As far as 96 and Jackson, you are right, that really should say Jackson/Germaine because they were 1a and 1b.
Too hard to pick, damn though we've had a lot of lethal play makers consistently too. I'll take 14 to start but any combination with Eddie in it is hard to beat, one more year though I can see Zeke replacing that in my book.
I am a Michigan booster bud....just spent $182 bucks at Wal-Mart this morning.
hard to keep out Hoying, Eddie and Terry Glenn but man those Troy Smith days were GOLDEN. I just think Santonio was a tad better than Gonzo. We were just so loaded this year that it'll be hard to beat. The Thomas and Smith combo was just as good, if not better than Santonio and Teddy G plus with EzE and TWO QBs that won a natty, they take the cake.
05 and 06.
Those were special teams.
For me, I'd have to go with the guys who won the Natty (in my lifetime) - 2002 & 2014, but there are just too many good combos to choose from.

95, 84, 02, 05, 14. They're all missing something but 95 had Orlando Pace and he is the only reason a team with Pepe Pearson could be listed for the 96 team. Pepe is the least talented RB to start at OSU in my lifetime.
Pepe is the least talented RB to start at OSU in my lifetime.
There is no doubt that Pace is the benchmark for every LT in history, but there is no way that I can say Pepe was less talented then Derek Combs or Lydell Ross. I will say that Combs didn't have a great line (exception-Bentley), plus Bellisorry at QB and that Ross would not have been the starter had Clarett not melted down. But Ross had a great line in 03 and a pretty good one in 04 and came no where close to Pepe's numbers.
Why no love for Pepe, our 6th leading rusher of all-time? I still remember when he ripped up Notre Dame.
No love for Pepe because I think that there are a lot of RBs that could have been as productive or more behind that O Line. He had good cutback ability and vision but he was too small and didn't have anything comparable to a second gear. He had one good year running behind Pace in 96 which is the only year he averaged 5 ypc. It's not about picking on the guy, I sure as hell rooted for him every Saturday that he wore Scarlet and Gray but I just don't think that he was that good.
I'm not going to argue your opinion and there is no doubt we have had more then 6 better backs, in spite of the stats, I just took issue with the "least talented" comment. Maybe Combs and Ross were more talented then Pepe, but it certainly didn't show up on the field and that is all I can judge them by.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.
Why is 07 even on this list?
It's your fault, I kept trying to call you before I posted, but your assistant kept telling me you were in a meeting and not available.
You reply to the wrong person?
