I was in the OSUMB for the win at Iowa in 1990, and distinctly remember storming the field and playing an impromptu "Hang on Sloopy" while the players were still mingling around.  It was a high point of a poor season overall. Summary below from Bucknuts.

Ohio State 27  No. 6 Iowa 26 Ohio State quarterback Greg Frey connected with Bobby Olive in the back of the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown with 0:01 remaining in the game to clinch a 27-26 upset in Iowa City. The pass capped a drive that saw Ohio State take possession at the Iowa 48-yard line with 00:59 on the clock and no timeouts. The unranked Buckeyes trailed by 12 points with 11:00 remaining in the game, but Frey threw three touchdown passes during the span, including two to Olive, who eluded Iowa defensive back Merton Hanks on the game-winning catch. Hanks was also victimized for a touchdown at the end of the first half when a potential interception bounced off him and was snagged by Ohio State receiver Jeff Graham, who raced into the end zone to cut Iowa's lead to 17-14 at intermission. Linebacker Steve Tovar led the Buckeye defense with 14 tackles. The upset victory put Ohio State back in contention for a Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl berth after they opened the conference season 0-1-1.

The movie was called “Touchback”. By most accounts, it’s bad, but I haven’t seen it. If they were even trying to be honest, the protagonist would be named Muhlenkamp or Mueller instead of Murphy.

Happy to say I am a Coldwater graduate - from back when we were just a baseball school. I did not think we would make the countdown. I forgot about Harlamert.

Great Skully, Kevin, but I have one grammar pet peeve I should share.  My 18 year old daughter over-uses the word "literally" (as well as "like", "iconic", and maybe a few more) so I'm very sensitive to it.  You may be surprised to know it occurs four times in today's text. You should get credit for using it correctly, though I would argue that none of the four are necessary.

Zonabuck, appreciate the link.  Cool to see the opener performed for people who clearly haven't heard it before. They sort of took it as a comic novelty.  I think it's brilliant writing to be able to pull together the rhymes and cadences he uses all while telling a more-or-less realistic historical biography.

I won't argue your thesis here, but will add a note that whether or not someone has taken an AP class doesn't necessarily classify them as a mouth breather. My small town high school didn't even offer AP classes when I attended in the late 80's, but I managed to become a National Merit Scholar anyway.

One good half against Bama shouldn't put them in the playoff, other wise Citadel deserves a shot, too.

That's a mic drop line, there, Navy.
