Is it just me, or does anyone else see a similarity to Andy Dufresne in the above picture for Holtmann?
I prefer not to be obtuse and post a rushed comment about whether we’re now at our roster max within minutes of that article being posted. I’m sure that was not the first thought that probably came to mind for the majority of the people reading the article.
Roster numbers should be the absolute last thing, if ever, to be commented on with this story.
Oh I know. I referenced them for comparison as for that decade, those were significant misses that ended up costing the Buckeyes. I’m getting older and the 90s are still fresh in my mind. :) No one on the list above really cost the Buckeyes to the extent of the older examples I listed.
KiJana Carter = miss. Charles Woodson, miss. Out of the above list, I consider only really Kelly and Hicks as a miss.
I posted above before reading your comment. I agree with you completely.
Aside from his record against OSU, Butt made the right choice even if his hand may have been forced. I don’t think he would have had the same career and success that he had at UM if he’d gone to Ohio State. It reminds me of basketball when everyone talked about Caris Levert being from Pick but being at UM. Instead of Ohio State missing, I look at Butt as ending up at the right fit for him and having a better opportunity to get on the field and produce.
Anytime my wife asks me if I’ve found something, even if I have, it’s “I ain’t found shit”. Mel Brooks movies are the best.
I wish he’d been the Coach during my undergraduate years in the 1990s because the UM games played during that time sucked to watch but made me drink even more.
If they want to fill the stadium every game, quit raising prices and charging ridiculous amounts for concessions, parking et al. It’s already long ago priced out the common folk who would love to go support the Buckeyes but can’t afford to go. With a family of 5, I have never taken more than 1 of my children at a time to a game. They’d fill the stadium easily each week with die hard fans if it wasn’t so expensive.
I used to say that exact phrase too but then raised twin girls who have rocket arms. My girls will break your face with a softball and can throw a nice spiral on a football too.
This is like getting repeatedly kicked in the nuts. No thanks. So many missed opportunities but we need to move on.
When I got married, my brother did a few minor pranks. A few months later he got married and my wife put glitter in their car vent which blew all over his car when it was turned on. He thought that was the only retribution. A week later he called to tell me that when they returned from their honeymoon and picked up their car at the airport, they found a loaded diaper wedged up under his driver's seat. They immediately knew they had a problem when they opened their car doors after a week of it sitting in an hot car.
My first game as well! Then a few weeks later was the Illinois game where freshman Eddie fumbled twice. Heartbreaking...
I don’t know how you equate Cardale’s tweet with taking the rivalry more seriously. One has nothing to do with the other. The preparation, year long focus and the scoreboard is what shows who is taking the rivalry more seriously. And for context, I seem to recall Cardale was upset with a grade he received because he wanted an A.
Love seems like a strong word. I read tolerable several times and that’s the word I’d use. Like the neighbor you kind of don’t like but you tolerate him to be neighborly. How about obnoxious? Desmond is obnoxious, Woodson is not.
I watched Desmond and Woodson both play against Ohio State. Desmond was one I totally hated as a player and I despise him to this day. Woodson, it was more envy of his abilities and wishing he had played for Ohio State. As an analyst, he seems to be pretty tolerable and honestly seems like he just wants to see his team succeed and is respectful of the competition.
And it said she was charged with only 2 counts, which surprised me that it wasn’t 32 given the amount of kids on the bus. Must be ok for the other 30 kids...
I think you’re spot on about Terry Glenn. Especially with his ability to go up and get the 50/50 balls.
The game at Heath in 91 or 92, I think it was 91, Calhoun and Stinson ran all over us. Someone told me at a reunion that Stinson ended up in prison and never played college ball. He was a really good back. Hope you’re doing well John.
Johnnies! Class of 91 here.
I have a PSU fan as a co worker. Shockingly, he’s quite annoying and likes to talk about our “rivalry”. He also thinks they have a real shot at winning. Would love it if someone would make a yelling lady/cat meme for this argument. She would make a perfect PSU fan yelling “OSU is our rival” as the cat calmly responds.
2002 season gave us Holy Buckeye. It was stressful to watch at the time, but I will gladly take that much too close win over Purdue just for how we won it. Beat that Georgia.
2 for sure. Not football related.
