In 1968 the Buckeyes stormed through their schedule with a bunch of sophomores. This was unheard of for the time.  They pounded USC in the Rose Bowl and held OJ Simpson in check..  In 1969 they were even better and opened the season beating TCU 62-0. They appeared to be unstoppable.

I was a 20 year old Navy petty officer on sea duty in the Mediterranean during the time. We had little information about the games or scores. But a Radioman on board would get the scores and post them on for the crew to read on Saturday nights. All through the fall we would hurry to get the scores.

With a ships crew of 230 sailors there were dozens of guys from Ohio and TSUN The disbelief shock and harassment lasted for weeks. I never want to go through anything like that again. BEAT TSUN.

My Father ..may he rest in Peace, was stationed at Pearl Harbor ( Hickam Air Field) when it all went down.  I could never get him drunk enough for him to describe what he saw and felt.  He later saw close quarters action at Guadalcanal that was just as traumatic. He was just 18 at the time and the experience wasn't easy to forget or put behind him.

My aunt said it best, " I've shed a thousand tears over what that war did to Ronald." Thanks for your service Dad

Ohio State's lowlight was losing its best player to an uncalled and weaponized hold.

Shoving our hero to the ground with both hands in the middle of his back is always called....not! This had to be the worst no call of the game... not the reversal of the targeting call.
