Play of the Decade (2010-2019), can't really argue the 2013 Iron Bowl Kick Six. Bama was ranked #1 & Auburn was #4. 56 yard FG attempt with 0:01 on the clock that Coach Saban fought to get put back on the clock. Bama coulda played in OT but they went for the FG to end it in regulation. Welp, it ended in regulation in the most improbable way.

A close second is the failed TTUN punt against Sparty in 2015. TTUN was up by 2 with 0:10 on the clock. All the punter had to do was catch the ball & kick it. Phase 1 failed, the snap hit the TTUN punter in the hands. The rest is some of the most enjoyable history I've ever witnessed. Thank you random TTUN student for introducing me to the term "surrender cobra"

Every rivalry week I'm on pins & needles because of the unpredictability of rivalry games. It's true, all the stats being thrown around about which team is superior are worthless. 

Just like the phrase "Remember the Alamo!" Buckeye Nation should NEVER FORGET

1996 - Brian Griese comes off the bench - https://www.cleveland.com/osu-michigan/2012/04/osu-michigan_1996_brian_griese.html

1969 - So many parallels with 2019 - https://bleacherreport.com/articles/1638930-michigan-vs-ohio-state-1969-the-game-that-changed-a-rivalry-forever

It may seem like a long time to hold a grudge but if you ask me, IT WILL NEVER BE LONG ENOUGH

It was to get them some experience against talented opposition. Our 2s & 3s are still damn good. Definitely gives them a confidence boost for the remainder of their season and for the guys coming back next year.

I'm over my 'meh, only won by 5 TDs against Rutgers' funk because we avoided injuries & WE WON BY 5 TDs. Both being really good things. Best thing about being 10-0...

GO BUCKS!

We're only allowed to travel with 74 players 


Don't want to be overconfident/borderline cocky but it will be hard to keep it under 60 for us.

Wouldn't be surprised to see us with less than 175 total yards passing and 400+ yards rushing just to keep the clock moving.

Fair point my fellow Buckeye fan. I do enjoy reading the theories that are waaaaaaaaayyyyy outside my box of thoughts.

I'm of the opinion that these preliminary rankings are just an advertising money maker for ESPN as they're the ones broadcasting the results show.

There is Maryland and only Maryland this week.

The worst part about being the favorite is that you can only disappoint. If you win, you were expected to. If you don't then you didn't live up to expectations. There is no best part to being a favorite.

Screw polls.
Screw Vegas odds makers.
Focus on beating Maryland.


GO BUCKS!
