I'm originally from Columbus, but now reside in NC. I am a youth and worship minister at a church in High Point. Outside of the Buckeyes, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors (skiing, hiking, camping, kayaking), riding roller coasters, playing frisbee golf, listening to/playing music, and watching movies and TV (LotR, 24, Psych).

Millennium was my favorite for 16 years until I rode New Texas Giant at Six Flags Over Texas last summer. It was absolutely incredible. Tons of airtime and craziness. I think (hope) this one will be even better. And just think, next season, CP will have MF, Maverick, and Steel Vengeance in a row. Best 3 ride stretch in the world!

My favorite reaction was 85 yards. I saw the hole open up as Zeke hit it and knew he was gone. I started screaming as he hit the hole and didn't stop until I started seeing white around the 5 yard line. So I took a breath and started screaming again.

The bad reactions were slamming my fist on my car frame when Santonio muffed the punt against Wisky in '04, leaving a dent that was still there the day I sold the car 7 years later, and losing to ttun in '95. It was a loss that, as a naive middle schooler, caused me to turn my back on my team until Tressel was hired 5 years later.

That Illinois game was the day of my first date with my now wife. I threw so many things in my dorm room that afternoon, especially that last drive when they ran out the clock. Much to my surprise, I didn't even mention it that evening.

Ramzy, you keep writing and I'll keep reading.

I replay this scene in my head every time someone mentions ice cream.

Very true! And the thing is, none of those trades are going anywhere anytime soon. As long as people still use the bathroom, we're gonna need plumbers. As long as we want lights electronics, we're gonna need electricians. And yeah, it's hard work, but I think there's a lot of people in this country that could use a little hard work. As for the jobs after graduation, graduates are getting stuck repaying six figure debt while working entry level jobs. It's one thing if your desired field requires you to go to school. It's another to go not knowing what you want to do while just racking up debt, and that's the big thing I want my kids to understand.

If we had lost to Indiana, though, would it have woken the beast like the MSU game did? I would gladly take a loss to IU in exchange for playing the rest of the year with the pissed off, take no prisoners mentality that they did against ttun and ND. That team would have blown Sparty out and repeated.

Yeah, there was like 2 or 3 seasons in a row where the opening Thursday night game was UNC/other USC. Not a battle of blue bloods, but a nice border rivalry that produced some good games.

Comment 07 Jun 2017

Yeah, I saw that at #2 (on the list at all, really) and immediately started to question everything that would come after it.

Figured for sure this game would be on the list. Crushed my dreams as a kid. We had Eddie. They had some guy whose name I couldn't even pronounce that I had never heard of. If you told me that week that someone would have 313 yards rushing in that game, it certainly wouldn't have been Biakabatuka.
