2002 for sure.
Texas Tech comes in, and Mo Clarett runs all over them and leads us to an easy victory.
Washington State comes in, and the same thing happens. Now you're getting really excited for the season.
Then the injuries start to pile up, and the games start to get a little too close for comfort. Cincinnati gives us all we can handle (what the heck?), but this Craig Krenzel kid finds a way to win.
The defense starts dominating, keeping us in games even when the offense just can't get anything going.
Holy Buckeye! Then the OT game against Illinois.
Then the big one: Michigan. It's only Tressel's 2nd year, and sure, he got the upset the previous season, but this is still Michigan and they always ruin our hopes. Not this time.
And of course, Miami is unbeatable. They're loaded with NFL players. They've got the win streak. Ohio State doesn't stand a chance.
OSU comes out and is in control of the game throughout. They're not just hanging in, they're winning. Clarett makes a miracle play to bail out a turnover. The refs blow some late calls at the end, and an overtime period that never should have happened begins. 4th down and the game. Nooooo - it's over. But wait, there's a flag! Cie Grant closes it out.
