Being from Cincinnati and having never lived in Columbus, I had no idea until right now that it was Jackson who started 'on the banks of the Olentangy.' It's ALWAYS been Ohio Stadium, the Horseshoe, on the banks of the Olentangy in Columbus, Ohio to me. One of the first games I ever came to I took a picture of the Shoe with the Olentangy in the foreground because I had finally gotten to 'the banks of the Olentangy.' Until 2016 I always parked west of the stadium, just so I could cross the Olentangy and see it's beautiful sights as I went to the House that Harley built and when I left it hearing the victory bell. I'll always remember his final call of the game in Tempe. That was the quintessential Keith Jackson for me. I look forward to being at home again on the banks of the Olentangy River soon.

Some of your criticisms are harsh and some justified. I agree about getting both backs out there at once. Plenty of teams run two back sets in the spread and in the shotgun and with the talent we have we need to do that. It's crazy to think we didn't more with the Hyde/Zeke and Zeke/Samuel and Samuel/Weber tandems. When we do, do that it works pretty well (see most of Samuel's big plays in 2016) and this offense is loaded to do it.

I think we'll see more trust in the 2nd year of Wilson/Day and therefore more dynamic offensive sets. So excited for 2018!

Yeah, it may be snow covered and 17 degrees out but the sun is definitely shinning on me and my family today in more ways than one!

I can't think of him without thinking of that win against Miami. As painful as Dan Fouts was that night, Keith Jackson was golden and at his best. I think after Fouts debacle in the first OT a producer or somebody told him to shut up and let Keith work and boy did he. That impossible goal line stand is forever in my memory with him. 

One part that wasn't in these clips was that after it was over he said about Tressel; "Rest easy, Woody. A new man has arrived."

Rest easy Keith, the broke the mold for you.

Buckeye National Champion. Counts to me!

Comment 13 Jan 2018

With how athletic our linebackers usually are, especially the OLBs, and how fast our DEs are too, we practically play just about any front when we choose to. Were I a coach, I'd want my teams to be confident playing in any formation (which to me is more important on offense, like being able to get under center occasionally) but to have your base identity. 

Last time I can remember with distinction seeing a 3-4 win championships was with Dick LeBeau's Steelers about ten years ago. 

Not a bad forum topic for this already terrible off season.

Thanks, all. Funny how online solidarity helps in a tough week. Have a good weekend, Buckeyes!

Comment 12 Jan 2018

Yeah, remembering what people like my grandpa endured in WWII is always inspiring. If he could survive the ETO, I can survive some stupid days where I got a home, family, and no one shooting at me. 

Comment 12 Jan 2018

Yep, perspective is huge in tough times.

You gave me a good laugh, Chief! Thanks!

Thanks, Lamplighter!

That's a permanent silver lining/ the whole shabang!

Comment 11 Jan 2018

Jones, Wray, and Togiai are 3 I'm excited about in the whole class, let alone early enrollees. This team won 12 games, the B1G and the Cotton Bowl, beating ttun, USC, MSU, and PSU because in those wins they dominated in the trenches. These guys have me excited about doing it again in 2018 and the years to come!
