My folks met at OSU, their sibs went there, and I also had a great aunt that graduated back around WW1, when 'coeds' on campus were uncommon. My first recollections are my folks hosting NCAA finals-watching parties, seemingly every year, during the Lucas days.  I was in my first elementary years, but I knew those players; Lucas, Havilcek, Siegfried, and Mel Nowell.  I remember my dad and uncle had a watch date for the M-game every year, and where I learned that my normally mild-mannered uncle knew words that I didn't.  OSU fb/bb games were always on the TV or radio at our house.  My serious fb following probably started in the '67 season (Bill Long was the QB.)  From then on, I've been pretty passionate/obsessed (potato/potahto.)

Maybe I'm overlooking someone, but Beanie was probably the last big-time RB to come out of an Ohio high school.  That makes it tougher for us, but it is still odd that we've had so much trouble given the status of the program, history with great running backs, etc.  We've been in it for top-self guys in recent years but haven't been able to seal the deal.  Heck, even Portal State and the Great Pumpkin landed not one, but two, of the guys we were after in last year's class.  Now I'm depressed.  Maybe I need a Snickers.  Happy Father's Day everyone.

Funny you should mention that.  I woke up last night smelling forest fire smoke (becoming a regular summer thing around here) which they say is coming from central Alberta. Much of last summer's smoke came from central BC. Makes perfect sense to me why Canada would take a dim view of tossing lit butts from cars. It's always been a pet peeve of mine how smokers treat anyplace and everyplace as their personal ashtray.

I'm in the same boat. My kid is bugging me to take him back for his first Buckeye game.  I'm leaning Wiscy, as it should be a good game, and I've seen us play them probably more that any other team (not saying all that much, given the distance) and have a perfect record against them.  I was also at the '13 game, and I still have flashbacks to freaking Jared Abbrederis (will someone please cover that guy!).

Sorry to hear this.  It has always been a required stop whenever I get back to campus.  I remember one November game years ago, where it became glaringly obvious on the walk from parking that I had seriously underdressed.  Conrad's saved the day with a Buckeye sweatshirt that is still a favorite.
