  • SPORTS MOMENT: I have two:

    1) Being on A Deck, 45 yard line, when Eddie George ran all over Notre Dame and the crowd started chanting "Ed-die, Ed-die, Ed-die!"

    2) Being in the Louisiana Superdome and mockingly chanting "S-E-C, S-E-C, S-EC!" when Ohio State beat Arkansas. It DID happen. I was THERE! You can wipe the record books, but not my memories.

I agree, based upon the time period and context.

Coming out of the Cooper years, it sometimes felt like we we would be lucky to beat TTUN. 

Troy though, he changed a culture. He just exuded Wolverine killer. When he was under center, you just felt we were going to win. He (and Tressel) made it so it would be a shock to lose to TTUN.  From that point on beating our rivals was just flat out the expectation. 

Long live Troy and his Wolverine killing ways!

I was a student in the 90's, and even I would love to go back and be a student for just one fall weekend in the late 60's or 70's.  I have heard too many good stories and pics from my elders.

YES!  I think both Titans and Friday Night Lights are excellent football movies.  They took on some real issues beyond football. Also, the uncut version of Titans had an Ohio State reference.

Living in Denver and having attended the playoff game at mile high vs U Denver..I love this. I forget what year it was. I just remember the heckling I got from the stupid shirtless Denver dbags in front of my kids during that game. Our crime was sporting Buckeye gear and cheering for  theOSU.  I tuned out the last half of the game. Kept reminding myself to not get into a fight, especially with the kids with me. I smiled and showed sportsmanship instead.

I know the father of a former Buckeye player, one that was with tOSU during the good times a few years back. He predicted this slide and pinpointed recruiting. Said that he could tell that Matta's style was going to make him miss on some recruits, and there would be a slide. I didn't beleive him at the time, because Thad seems so likable, but I am not that close of an insider. 

I am confident Thad can right the ship.

Stud concerns me - just not proven yet. Warriner would appear to be the better coach.

Not concerned about JT Barret leading the 2017 Buckeyes.  He has proven he can do it and that he has the talent and intangibles.  Put a good performer in a situation with bad leadership and mentoring, and you get a bad result. Kinda like every high draft pick the Browns get.

I agree.  Forcier really looked like an ass-kicker and had a lot of hype going to Michigan, and honestly he had some flashes of great playmaking at Michigan.  So some measureables and play-making ability are comparable and they share the same first name. But that's it. The intangibles are the difference.  You can tell by the way TM speaks and leads and wins.  There is something different there and I think he is an Urban Meyer QB.

Maybe a bit short for a QB, but Troy Smith is (barely) 6' and Russell Wilson is 5'11'. I'm not worried about him being able to be productive in college. Winners win - and they are not afraid of competition.
