I have always been a Buckeye fan but truly became a diehard after attending football camp under Earl Bruce back in the early 80's. My first car was a gray 1980 Cutlass with scarlet interior called the Woodymobile (bench front seat, an entire generation of kids have no idea how great a bench front seat is!). I grew up in Cincinnati (which should actually be part of Kentucky) where there are plenty of Buckeye faithful that are typically overshadowed by hillbillies, catholic school devotees, and cute little bearcat fans with massive inferiority complexes. I now live outside of Hamilton county where you see the Buckeyes flags fly 365 days a year. My favorite Buckeyes moments: a 3-way tie between throwing with Art as a sophmore in high school, watching Cie Grant toss Dorsey to the ground like a rag doll, and yelling like a madman as Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff as I watched from 20 rows up in the 2006 NC game. Worst Buckeye moments: about 30 minutes after the Ted Ginn moment and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

While many may remember Tressel's method of scheduling easier opponents during the regular season to make sure his players would be able to sustain longer in the season, this 2002 slate seems like a bit of an outlier

Sorry if I'm a little sensitive to the re-writing of Tressel history but the Buckeyes faced nine ranked opponents in non-conference regular season games under Tress including a #1, #2, #2, and a #3 (all four of those were not in your 'outlier' year of 2002. Meyer has faced one ranked opponent in the non-conference regular season schedule in #14 Oklahoma last year. 

Go BUCKEYES!

Edit......that being said, the run to end the 2014 season may never be approached let alone topped.

Might want to look into the reason he lost so many games in his last year. 1943 was not even close to a typical football season. He did not 'spurn' Ohio State, he left to become coach and partial owner of new professional football team that we all kinda know today.

I included Brown for a few reasons. Mount Rushmore has four faces so I'm thinking we need four as well. Brown is one of four coaches at Ohio State to win a national championship. There is no other NC coach to add to that list. Second, he led Ohio State to its first NC. Lastly, his college legacy was forever altered by WWII. We really have no idea what would have happened with his coaching career had he not answered his nation's call.

Woke up yesterday to emails, calls, and texts from my dad and thought my brother died. Turns out, he thought I died because I accidentally scheduled the Wednesday Skull Session for Thursday.

I was thinking the same thing......along with DJ's growing hat size after realizing thousands (yep, i'm guessing thousands) were wondering what the heck was wrong when the Skully was a few hours late. We are all addicted! Lots of love for 11W

I hate seeing the midwest (Ohio in particular) kids going to Kentucky. One of the second tier teams in the B1G needs to entice Mark Stoops to make the move (Illinois, can you hear me?)

Also, can't imagine Master Teague remaining at number 11 in Tennessee for much longer.

Agree with this 100%. Love the perspective from an opponent but Zeke had well over 100 yards by the second series and Cardale had 2-3 short passes and a 50 yard throw (40 yard TD) to the endzone where Smith was covered but won the 50/50 battle for the ball. Wisky was 'fu*!#d' well before Cardale showed off his arm and Smith showed off his speed. That BUCKEYE team became a TEAM that week. This was not just a 1-2 man show.

No flack from me on who tops your list but there cannot be a worse game day environment than Indiana. I've not been to Rutgers for a game but the idea that it may be worse than Bloomington will certainly keep me away.
