That was still the Holiday Inn when I was at OSU ('03-'07). I lived on North Campus that whole time; Scott House (RIP), Drackett Tower, and then Harrison Apartments for my last 2 years. Stayed at that Holiday Inn one night my freshman year. Crazy how North Campus has changed.
This was the first full season I was able to watch. I remember Boeckman playing really well in the middle of the season such that there was some chatter about a Heisman (Purdue and Penn St in particular if I remember right). He was overall a pretty decent QB I think, though he kinda faded at the end of the season. It was really Beanie and his "Stiff Arm of Justice" that carried us through the season.
Well that sucks
Oh man. Someone had a crying baby in the office earlier and I thought of this. "What the fuck is that?"
That was a helluva read, Ramzy. Awesome.
"Remember meeeeeeee, for centurieeeeeeeees!!"
Don't you mean Joe Wowserman?
Knowshon Moreno, Reesing, Matt Ryan, LeSean McCoy... So many non-OSU players I remember because of how crazy that season was.
Oh, and Mendenhall fumbled it. I don't care what the refs said
The man. The myth. The legend.
My all-time favorite. I'll never forget him coming in to replace Bobby Carpenter in the '05 scUM game. At my wedding, our table names were OSU-related (partly as a consolation for it being the same day as the '12 Wisky game). Our Head table was the "Laurinaitis table."
Enjoy retirement Little Animal.
That was my favorite spot
Providing you with an assist, sir.
98 Jeep Cherokee. Dad bought it with 0 miles on it, now has >250k. I learned to drive on it and still do every day. Had through high school, college and now in grad school.
Nice work. Love those highlight videos by Ledbucks. Wish he was still making those.
From Virginia, went to OSU (2003-2007), moved back to Virginia.
I was thinking this should be the Pertinent Heisenberg:
I live in Blacksburg (grad student at Tech). The town is great, lot of pretty good food around. Driving to Tech is easy, even on game days. Fans are intense but not nasty. Parking on game day can be a challenge but walking to the stadium is not bad.
Well played, sir. I had a fall wedding too but couldn’t get the wife to agree to the by-week in 2012 and had it during the Wisky game instead. Best of luck with your marriage.
Can’t believe “Manos: the Hands of Fate” hasn’t been mentioned.
Dreadful. Only the MST3K treatment made it watchable
Kinda like this gem:
The whole campus was a construction zone when I was there between ’03 and ’07. Looks like things haven’t changed much
