Vball10set, Totally agree. Friday night is for the high school teams. I will be on the sideline tomorrow as our team takes on our rival. Hoping their announcer doesn't give updates because I want to watch the Northwestern game when I get home on my DVR. Time for practice.

Matt, where do you get all of this data?

Hi Crumb,
Just read your question, sorry for the late reply. In the past, I would scour the Ohio State Media Guide and chart every game Ohio State played on a specific date. I did it this way for many years.

A couple of years ago, I decided to save myself time and created a ridiculous spreadsheet that encompasses every game Ohio State has ever played. For each game, I have 33 different categories that can be sorted.

Some of the categories are: Season, Year, Ohio State's AP Rank, Day, Date, Win, Loss, Tie, Home, Away...you get the point. I did this project while watching tv at night after my family went to bed. Yes, it took several months (and some sleepless nights) to compile, but it's up to date. 

I'm currently working on a digital score book for every game between 1960 and today. When finished it is finished the spreadsheet will have the team stats (Ohio State and opponent) for the following categories: Scoring by quarter, half and total (this task is completed), Passing, Rushing, Total Offense, Punting, Kicking, Kickoffs, Fumbles, Interceptions, Penalties, Blocked Kicks (complete) and First Downs.

Another aspect of this project is recording the individual stats between 1960 and today as well. Have completed several all-time series, but there is a long ways to go before I have every game. 

Have been working on both projects for over a year. One day it will be finished. One day...

Why? Why would you do that to us? I had almost entirely forgotten about that. 

Nappy, because I'm a sadistic individual. Besides the trauma of that memory, I hope life is treating you right.

Burger 1124,

This "fact" was from an Ohio State press release earlier this week:

The game this week represents the ninth consecutive “road” night game for the Buckeyes.

I'm with you, two weeks ago, the Buckeyes played at Indiana during the day. They must have overlooked Indiana as an away game as they do play in Ohio Stadium West.

Third Question

You said Frost went 13-0 last year. He had a losing season with Nebraska last year. UCF lost to LSU in their bowl game last year.  Did you mean all of that in 2017?

What was written was...When UCF went 13-0 last, Frost joined Walter Camp...

That was a copy paste error. In my haste, I deleted year, but forgot to also get rid of last. Boo on me, it is now corrected.
