The Eleven Warriors Web Report comes to you from the Spectrum Sports studios in downtown Columbus, featuring our own Beau Bishop, Dan Hope and James Grega.
With a couple weeks still remaining until the run-up to the 2018 Ohio State football season really begins with Big Ten Media Days and the start of fall camp, we decided to take a look back at some of the Buckeyes' most memorable games in recent history on this week's show.
That led to a discussion on former Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, who played an integral role in leading the Buckeyes to victory in two of their most memorable games of the past seven years: their 33-29 win over Wisconsin in 2011, in which Miller threw a game-winning 40-yard touchdown pass with less than 30 seconds remaining, and their 42-41 win over Michigan in 2013, in which Miller passed for two touchdowns and ran for three more.
"I don't remember a more dynamic Ohio State player," Bishop said. "There maybe have been better ones, but in terms of home-run hitting power, I don't remember one."
The panel also talked about Ohio State's unforgettable 42-35 win over Alabama in the 2014 College Football Playoff, which Bishop said he considers to be the biggest win in Buckeyes history.
This week's show also discusses the alternate uniforms the Buckeyes have worn in recent years. While Hope was the only fan on set of the "Land of the Wolves" uniforms worn last year against Penn State and Michigan, all three panelists agreed that the "Cocaine Whites" – worn against Michigan in 2013 and Penn State in 2014 – were the best of the bunch.
Watch the video above to hear more of that discussion, and for more on Ohio State's most memorable finishes of the past 10 years, read Hope's piece from July 4 on that very topic and watch this week's episode of the Eleven Warriors Report on Spectrum Sports Mid-Ohio – premiering Tuesday at 7 p.m. – for discussion on all of those games.
