"Be a coach in high school" should read (I realize it's a quote, so I'm kidding here) "Win a state championship as a high school coach". Thanks for the article!

I'll say the Joey Bosa sack in the 2nd overtime versus Penn State in 2014. If that doesn't happen and Ohio State ends up losing, no playoffs. Those playoffs changed the narrative that the Big Ten (or at least Ohio State) was still relevant. If OSU misses out on those playoffs and still loses to Clemson 31-0 two years later, I think they would be looked at differently today.
Cooper may not have lost five in a row, but he was winless in 6 in a row.
Agreed. Not only did they have the bad loss, Utah Valley State gave them a game right afterwards.
I am just glad that the game time of the kickoffs is one of the bigger discussions going on right now. That says a lot about how well the team is performing this year.
If noon is such a terrible time to play a game, then I wonder why Ohio State scheduled their non-TV games (yes there was such a thing!) for 1:30pm in the 1990's. Closer to noon than 3:30pm. Some of those were Big 10 games.
I remember when the Ohio State games used to be at 1:30pm....which meant they weren't on TV. Amazingly, some of these were Big Ten games too.
Is this meant for another team's forum? None of those are Ohio State's rivals (but Ohio State is 11-3 against them all time.) They play ND in 2022 & 2023.
When there was artificial turf, you could go in and walk around and play on the field. That ended in 1990 when they put in real grass. I do remember the track being open for a couple of hours on weekdays in the early '90's so students could use it, but sadly never took advantage of that.
Ahh, the big scoreboard with the Big Bear Advertisement.I remember going to one game, probably in the late 1990's, when the referee stopped play and asked the scoreboard operator to please set the game clock to (xx:xx) - I don't remember the specific time. The game clock was already set to the correct time before his announcement. There was a pause, then he asked again. This seemed like it went on for a minute or so. Then the official acknowledged his mistake as he was looking at the time of day clock, which is in the dead center of the scoreboard.
Since there was no live video, just an electronic scoreboard, there was a student team that created some pretty cool graphics to flash after big plays or to get everyone revved up for a big 3rd down.
Brutus was how we registered for our classes (via a touchtone phone).
Here is an article from the Lantern about student ticket sales:
I disagree. If we run the table it is 100%.
I found an older image of their alternate uniforms (from the Flintstones for you younger folks):
Current forecast is Sunny with a high of 72 for Saturday. Since we are playing Michigan State, I am surprised snow/rain squalls aren't in the forecast. I'm tempted to drive over to Indiana from Cincinnati to put a bet down on OSU covering this one. I think the score should be similar to last week versus Nebraska.
Currently watching Clemson punt while down 14-7!!
Wow, I would be surprised if Wisconsin was not favored.
I think his NFL career was solid. 164 games 81.4% conversion rate. His XP misses in 2016 were pretty bad (23/29 - 77.8%). Of course it seems like every year the new batch of NFL kickers are kicking longer and more accurately. Jim Breech of the Bengals (1979-1992) was considered pretty good and only converted 71.5% of field goals including on 6 over 50 yards.
