  • SPORTS MOMENT: Witnessing my first game on 22 October 1960, OSU 34 Wisconsin 7; fullback Bob Ferguson 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.

This 3rd verse of Carmen Ohio is very apropos.

I was in an end zone seat at that game in Ann Arbor. The Buckeyes had trailed and things looked bleak but they came back to tie it up at 14. With 2 minutes left in the game, Ray Griffin picked off the pass on the Wolverine 32 and brought it back to the Michigan 3. Pete Johnson finished it off with the go ahead TD and a 21-14 victory. Woody Hayes said, "This is the greatest comeback I've ever had as coach." [My Dad and I sneaked into the post-game press conference.] My favorite game.

*OSU football team members that played high school baseball as per 2018 media guide:

C.J. Saunders - 3 time letterman in baseball 

Owen Frankhouser - a 2-year captain of his high school baseball team

Jaelen Gill - "elite baseball player"

Tuf Borland played baseball for two years in high school.

Gavin Cupp lettered in baseball.

Phillip Thomas (longsnapper) - played 1 season of HS baseball 

* Does not include freshmen. I think these young men who are currently on the roster would probably enter the contest. My apologies for any I might has omitted.

In no way diminishing either's talent, Mike Vrabel played 4 seasons 1993-96 (36 QB sacks) and Joey Bosa played just 3 seasons 2015-2017 (26 QB sacks). Without analyzing all the data, I would bet Mike accumulated most of his stats his last three years, whereas Joey didn't play a senior season.

The 1971 Buckeyes ended the season with 3 straight conference losses. The offense was crippled with injuries. Tom Campana gave OSU a late 3rd quarter 7-3 lead with an 85 yd punt return against the TSUN. Campana was “the man” returning 5 punts for 166 yards - more than the Buckeyes generated for total offense in the game (138 yds). The opponents regained the lead 10-7 and OSU’s final drive was thwarted by ‘controversial’ no call penalty/interception. Campana’s outstanding game performance was overshadowed by Woody throwing the yard markers. I was in attendance that memorable day.

Art was a warrior on the filed. One of the four seasons my brother was a OSU team manager, he assigned to the QB coach when Art was the QB. In later years, my brother would run into Art at FB games and introduce us to him. He was always personable, kind, gracious and friendly. Sorry to hear of his serious physical problems. At times it can be very difficult to forgive and seemingly impossible to forget the wrongs people (& we) do. Prayers for Art and his family.

Was fortunate to see the 1960 Buckeye team play MSU and win 111-79. (when I was 7). Havlicek was my grandpa's favorite player. Tenacious defender. Followed his career as a Celtic. “He is the best all-around ball player I ever saw,” Bill Russell.

Many college athletes are unhappy with their "playing time".
