The older I get I prefer watching sports live. Used to watch about everything. I no longer watch much sports on tv; prefer college over the pros. I attend my local D2 college team’s basketball games, OSU FB games, various events at the Mid Ohio Race Course and the Indy 500.
Was Patterson trying to get rid of the ball because he had an arm around him by the defense? Grounding?
As usual, I was listening to Paul Keels and Jim Lachey. I always turn the tv sound down for everyone (for years) except Gus & Joel.
It not the virus.
I totally agree - would not have changed the result - but early on there were some very dubious calls that hurt the Sooners.
IMHO, Wade lowers his head to target the QB’s body, chest, mid section, etc. The QB lowers his head instinctively because he’s anticipates impact and thereby placing his own head in harm’s way - not Wade’s fault. This happens on some occasions. Lawrence wasn’t defenseless. Maybe a penalty box for a set amount of time like hockey. I do not believe the majority of athletes are trying to hurt one another.
The officials on the field initially made the right call. Dismiss the replay officials.
My colleagues presented me with a framed, personally autographed color photo of Coach Jim Tressel on the occasion of my retirement thanking me for my service as a public educator.
Dad is a fan of the band, too. Probably impacted me to ultimately attend OSU and I ended up playing in the band for a couple seasons.
I witnessed my first game on 22 October 1960, OSU 34 Wisconsin 7 in Ohio Stadium. My Dad took me. I was 8. Fullback Bob Ferguson #46 scored twice! Watching the band's ramp entrance to the field that day was a memorable highlight. I have since attended a few hundred more games. Ohio State football has always been my absolute, #1 favorite sports passion.
... and if they’re soooo smart, why would they stoop so low to watch a contest they know they can’t win?
You can say that again.
Play loose and not to not lose.
Play always to win.
Penn State’s defense was a bigger factor than the weather
One of my favorite Archie Griffin pictures!
He won a NC at both places.
“[Chase] jumps off the tape at you."
On Ohio State's talent level: "Probably the most talented roster we've watched on tape definitely this year, maybe since we've been here."
“Based on what I'm seeing on film right now, I think we were right. [Justin]’s pretty good."
The Buckeyes are even more impressive live, up-close and in person!
I’d vote worse than TTUN.
Agreed. I even pull for TTUN to beat PSU.
They didn’t play Ohio State (9-0).
1968 team improved all season long. I agree with Chic, 1969 was most dominant until ... The fans were as cocksure as many are now. (It’s not over yet). 1973 team best defensive team I’ve seen; 1974 team best offensive team I saw. ‘75 Buckeyes lost to UCLA in the Rose Bowl - a team OSU dominated during the regular season. It was a different era for sure. The season finale in Ann Arbor - which I witnessed - was a great comeback in the last 7+ minutes of the game. The Bucks were pretty pedestrian in that game until the very end. Dominant is a strong term. The 2014 was dominant the last three games that counted the most.
Toledo came to Findlay last Sunday. The exhibition was a charity game for the Dayton storm recovery.
Same in Findlay, skunk weasels win a “big” game, they display their yellow & blue regalia for all to see. Lose a game, they can not be found.
The 50th anniversary of the 1969 game in Ann Arbor is coming upon us and I’m sure it will be mentioned as we approach our scheduled meeting with them. I know it’s “ancient” history but that day remains a scar in my memory.
