“Did we win?” Asking for a friend.
First game in the Shoe was in September 1972, against UNC. A freshman wearing #45 had quite a coming out party that day. Arch had about 246 on the ground. Who was the tailback (maybe left halfback) that Archie supplanted that day? I think it was Morris Bradshaw, but who knows?
JT had rushing touchdowns against TTUN in 4 straight years.
Let that sink in.
Three great RBs: Tony Dorset, Herschel Walker and (I hate to say this). OJ Simpson.
Did the Bucks have any shot at the Mass. LB that just committed to TTUN? We could use a LB or 2.
No offense to Mike Datish, but I think Doug Porter ( Youngstown) was the long snapper 1975-77.
I would use Demario the same way we used Curtis Samuel. Let him line up as a wingback then move to a RB position and give the D two different runners to worry about.
Oh, and throw him the ball on the wheel route too.
Cedar Point does have a college football connection. Gus Dorais and Knute Rockne, of Norte Dame, worked there in the early 1900s and perfected the forward pass. They used it to beat Army one year. Used to be a historic marker on the beach there commemorating this.
The early 60s. Basketball team had Lucas and Havlicek. Football team had Warfield, Ferguson and (of course) Woody. Listening to games on radio and reading of their accomplishments in the newspaper. Our young brains had to fill in the blanks because the games were rarely on TV.
Keying on #20 and #14 in the first clip. On this play —and many others last year — the LBs and DBs seem to have a predetermined route or spot that they run to without looking at the ball. That led to many big plays when they guess wrong. Hoping that can be fixed in 2019.
Draymond Green is the dirtiest player in the history of the NBA. He’s worse than Laimbeer, worse than the hatchet men of the 50s and 60s.
I was screaming at the TV when he was in the Finals against the Cavs. Just watch him; you will see what I mean.
In 1961, we had Maxwell Award winner Bob Ferguson at FB, flanked by future NFL stars, Paul Warfield and Matt Snell, at the 2 halfback slots.
Not a bad real life committee. Finished 8-0-1.
You have to put this game from 49 years ago in perspective. The Lakers then had Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Elgin Baylor. The Lakers then were like the Warriors now.
The Knicks were undersized underdogs in that series. When Reed got hurt, in game 5, Dave DeBuschere at 6’ 6” had to guard the 7’2’ Wilt Chamberlain.
No NBA team since could move without the ball and hit the open man for “better” shot than the 69-70 Knicks. They were a joy to watch.
Beanie sure had some great games against TTUN.
Banzai TTUN did, in fact, invent toast. Did you watch their DB try to cover our receivers last November?
The 3 M approach to OOC scheduling:
One Marquee matchup (Oregon,LSU ,ND, Texas)
One Middle of the Road (Pitt, Ky, Cincy, Syracuse)
One MAC ( But only Ohio schools ).
Good point on the two (redshirt) freshmen winners. But neither repeated and both left for the NFL early.
The talent around Hoak and/or Chugunov will be a hell of lot better than it was at UK or WVU — if one of them has to go in with the first team.
They will have studs to hand off to, pass to, and protect them at OSU. Remember that before you start the worrying.
It would be interesting to correlate this list with recruiting rankings over the same (or corresponding) time frame.
Don’t forget ... we took a knee late and inside the 20, or it could have been 69.
A true Buckeye great. RIP, Hondo.
No way Jones has more upside than D.Haskins
OK watch both safeties on the long run by Maryland’s RB. One safety on the play side misses the tackle. The other deep safety sprints from 20 yards away to a spot far away from the play. Like he is still worried about a screen pass to the right side, away from the play. Never looks at the ball. Who teaches that? So glad Grinch is gone.
