Been attending Buckeye games since 1954. College football is the greatest game ever invented. The NFL merely capitalized on the fame of the great college players it recruited to Play-for-Pay. Not anti-NFL really, just know that college teams are way more fun to watch and its players, way easier to cheer for.

Great way to celebrate and remember, Kevin.  Went to my first game with my Dad and saw Hopalong Cassady earn his Heisman.  That was 62 years ago and I still thrill to the spectacle of it all.  Dad's gone and no one took a picture, but it's been burned into my memory ever since.  I actually feel kinda sorry for folks who don't have memories this powerful

 it would have still went to Ohio State 

DJ, dear boy, you can tell you grew up in Ohio.  It's should have GONE to Ohio State.  This is by far the most common central Ohio malapropism.  It's never, ever, "have went".  Back to English Grammar 101, son.  Or maybe it's English As A Second Language for Marionaires.

The Samuel TD run was the most important play for obvious reasons.  But the most amazing play was Noah Brown's grab in Norman, Oklahoma.  I was about 30 yards away and it was astounding -- it tore a hole in the Sooners' soul.

Anyone else remember Bo using this exact language after the Big Ten sent OSU to the Rose Bowl in lieu of his scUM clan?  It's why Harbaugh used "bitterly disappointed".  Exactly what Bo said and everyone north of Toledo knows it.  Harbaugh's boys had their dreams crushed Saturday, so their coach wrapped himself in Bo Schembechler.

In his wildest Brooklyn dreams, Curtis Samuel could never have imagined the eruption he'd cause with that run.  Congratulations, young man, for a football play you'll remember for the rest of your life.  You've made millions of people deliriously happy!

The more I think about this, the madder I get.  Friday night high school football is important in Ohio.  Messing with it like this turns my stomach. -- all so a filthy rich TV network can make a little more money.  First, Saturday afternoon alcohol sales -- as if football's no fun without day drinking -- and now encroachment on a sacred Ohio tradition.  The game is never ruined by the coaches or the players -- it's always by the TV money.
