I think it was around 1979-80, that my dad ran a Diary Queen at the state fair for FCA. My dad brought me along to the promotional photo shoot, that just so happened to be with Archie. After the photo's were taken, Archie asked if I wanted to toss the football around with him for a few minutes. Needless to say, that was quite a moment for a 13 year old Buckeye fan.
Born an raised in Columbus, now in Stillwater, OK.
It's funny you mentioned stubhub, because that's exactly where I saw him when I was picking up my tickets for the Cotton Bowl. My guess is he buys the cheapest ticket possible, then schmoozes his way to the lower levels just to get on TV. I'm only speculating on this based on the fact that I've never actually seen him sitting in a seat.
He played a thankless position that the only time he's noticed by the fans is when he screws up...so he spent the majority of his career in anonymity! Enjoy your retirement Nick, you've earned it!
I'll never forget how amazing he was that season. He constantly sold out his body to make spectacular catches. I especially remember watching the Biletnikoff awards and watching Keyshawn Johnson begin to stand and accept the award only to have Glenn's name called instead. RIP Terry Glenn.
Obviously, Dantonio was setting himself up for the B1G coach of the year award by tanking last season. All he needs to do is go 7-5 and it's as good as his.
But the big question is how many of these are "committable" offers. Don't want some high school coach in Louisiana going off on Urban in some Bleacher Report article. /s
I'm not so much concerned with the rushing yards by our RB's...I'm more concerned with their willingness to do the dirty work that made EZE so special. Hopefully, these young guys took notes on what it takes to be a COMPLETE RB!!
I'm assuming that since this is not in italics...
Greatest of all time...I think. I'm getting too old to keep up with all the acronyms.
edit Looks like Max got here first.
When did Mo Williams start running track for the Buckeyes?...
Thanks for keeping us updated on all of the Buckeye athletic teams!
Nice breakdown Mike. Really like what Lyle has been able to do recently. My concern is about effort. I can take losses easier as long as there is max effort. This is a young team that lacks player leadership. As nice as a player that Loving is, his apparent lackadaisical approach at times is contagious to the younger players. There is only so much a coach can do. I have seen glimpses of how good this team can be, and look forward to watching them improve. Just show me the effort, and I can live with what happens.

Maybe it's just me, but #10 for Michigan State could have easily been called for an illegal screen on both of those plays. The first gif he rides Thompson out of the play while making no effort to establish any offensive position, while in the second gif, he set up too far inside and had to throw a hip check in order to take Thompson out of the play. I've seen our big's called for illegal screens for far less egregious offenses. Such is the life with B1G officials I guess.
The play you are referring to was run by Oklahoma State against FSU. It was executed flawlessly and every FSU db jumped the pump fake. I agree that we need to add this to our playbook!
I went back and watched the ending several times and here's my take. Yes, Craft could have possibly been called for a foul, but the "foul" by LSJ occurred after the lights on the backboard lit up, so in my opinion, it was after time expired so a good no call.
7 missed layups, 7 missed free throws. Can't leave 21 points on the court and expect to beat anyone. Pathetic!
I'd up-vote you as well, but currently don't have enough helmet stickers to do so. A technicality that will shortly be remedied.
As a transplanted Buckeye who currently lives in Stillwater and works for the "other" OSU, I have somewhat of an insiders perspective on this. The basic narrative around here is this: Thayer Evans has an ax to grind regarding OSU (recent history somewhat proves this) and the majority of players interviewed were malcontents and drug users who were kicked off the team (and if Les Miles kicks you off, it must really be serious or you really suck at football). To be fair, most of my coworkers agree that some of this stuff probably did happen to some extent (as it does at most major programs), but that it is being blown out of proportion. I, for one, will withhold judgment about this until further notice. Like they say, consider the source.
P.S. The majority of my coworkers were very respectful to me during the tOSU fiasco, and I shall return the favor.
Was that RDS running through that field?
Great video, great memories...too bad it "never happened."
Not sure if Fragel will be the starter all year or not, but he could be one hell of a weapon near the goal line as a "tackle eligible."
So...have you ever "Tebowed?"
