Agreed. I missed the poll last week, and just came back to the original voting page to see which of the other games beat it, since it had to be on here. How on earth was that game not a choice?
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!
Thanks, Hov! First ever post and was trying to get it fixed. Appreciate it.
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.
After Cardale's first bomb to Devin, I texted my mom, "All. Night. Long." Then again after Zeke's long run. I didn't realize just how right that prediction would be, haha.
But Columbus and Tuscaloosa do have football programs that have been relevant for the past decade...
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.
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.
Yeah, I saw that at #2 (on the list at all, really) and immediately started to question everything that would come after it.
Texas. Ugh. I think I had pushed the memories of that game out of my mind until you brought it up. Should have won that game about 5 or 6 different ways.
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.
I couldn't feel bad about losing that game after Reynolds choked out Sorgi after tackling him. It felt like justice was served.
