The ACC and the SEC play eight conference games, the BIG10 nine. This one game difference can, and usually does affect the won-loss records that favors the ACC and the SEC. There is no indication that this will change in the future.

I was 13 at the time. My father coached at West Tech and then at West High school. My first game at the Shoe was 10-11-47 when USC shut out OSU 32-0. We were staying at the Deshler and by the time we got back to the hotel the Dispatch articles were calling for Fesler's head and other body parts. Some things never change. These were the pre=Interstate days. All furniture was remove from the lobbies on each floor so that it did not end up on High Street.

Since my father was a high school football coach the first OSU game I attended was Nov. 18, 1944 in the cold cold Cleveland Stadium, Ohio State 26, Illinois led by Buddy Young 12.

BrutusB-In my day there was neither the red hat guy nor replays; however, during slow times people would talk to each other, possisbly a dying art. Also during the sot so good years people would visit the restroom and food stands during the first half of the game so as to be in their seats during the halftime to see The Best Damn Band in the Land. It would be interesting to see 100,000 plus with their faces in their pones during a replay.

Why is 11W devoting so much space to Harbaugh? Is it the off season? When does fall practice begin? Hopefully that will be the end of the constant Harbaugh photos and articles.

It was either 1948 or 49 at the Cleveland  Arena when Kentucky with Groza, Beard, Line, Barnstable, and Jones (the only one not on the take) played Bowling Green who had Otten and Share, both about seven feet. Kentucky won by a point or two. Groza fouled out early in the second half. Jones kept Kentucky in the game shooting what now would be 3's. Hell of a game.

I at first thought of Independence in Cuyahoga County that sent Walt Klevay to Ohio State in the early 50's. Are these the only two schools in the state with the same name? Enjoy this series..

The only thing I ask of officials is consistency. Like baseball, the hitters can live with an umpire that has a consistent strike zone, wide, high, low. It is the ones that jump around so that you don't know what is going on.

As for getting on officials, I learned my lesson in my first high school basketball game. I sassed off and got a T. My father, a football coach and a basketball official met me in the locker room and told me that I had my first T. He said the second and you don't play again this season. Only had one T in three years.
