  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the 1984 Illinois game in the Shoe with my Dad a couple of weeks before my 13th birthday. Keith Byars running for 274yds and 5tds, including the legendary 67yd td when he ran out of his shoe. His 3rd td where he dove for the left pylon in the closed end of the Shoe was right into our laps. The camera man was standing right in front of us, and this play was featured on the CBS lead in to college football for years. I've never seen 1 man take over a game like that, before or since. A great team with the likes of Mike Tomzack, Chris Carter, Mike Lanese, Peper Johnson, Jim Lachey, etc. That was the day I was baptized into the religion of CFB.

"even though Penn State  stomped Michigan State  on Saturday while Oklahoma was dormant, it didn't change their perspective enough to see them leaping over the Sooners."

Um, correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not), but Penn St was ranked higher (7th both weeks) than the Sooners both last week (8th) AND this week (9th).

Simply:  if Clemson or Washington lose, Wisconsin or Penn St is in.  Both teams are ranked higher than Oki or Oki St, so no jumping there.

I grew up 5 minutes down the road from the old Richfield Coliseum.  I'm 44, so was a bit young for Austin, Bingo and Co and the miracle of Richfield.  But saw World B many times and lived and died with the Price-Ehlo-Daugherty-Nance-Williams crew along with Red Right 88, The Drive, The Fumble, The Move and of course The Shot.  Thank goodness I've always had the Buckeyes....

Living abroad for 16 years now, LeBron's entire career.  Have watched him from afar, lived and died and loved and cursed this kid from Akron, my mother's home town, and the birthplace of my daughter. 

I'm an educator at an international school in Germany (at school as I type this),  but of course stayed up to watch.  How could I not?  Last game 7 for Cleveland, the 97 World Series.....and I was still in school at tOSU. 

Anyone not from Cleveland would never understand how much this means to NE Ohio.  My grandfather, from Warren, just passed away this February, but I know he's smiling knowing the kid from Akron did it. 

We all win.

No. Sleep. Till Cleveland!

I was busting forehead veins screaming for more inside runs, but in the end the held on.

Funny how close games, especially those where the Bucks play poorly in some fashion, bring out all the chicken littles.

D Lee's play lately is reminding me a bit of Ryan Damn Shazier's when he would play too fast at times....over run plays and miss.  Although I thought he got the side of the helmet on that last PF, Darron damn near ripped that guys head off.

Entire end of summer/fall camp to get ready for the season opener.  Never should be an excuse for not executing a game plan you have weeks to prepare for.

The rest of the season is implementing game plan M-F before the Sat game.

Not to make excuses for anyone, but by default the season opener should be the game teams are most prepared for....and the bowls of course...

Nice write up Chris.

For the 2002 game I was returning from a week riding at Whistler with my ex, and caught some of the first half at the airport in Chicago, some of the 4th Quarter on the plane to Cleveland, and the field goal to tie in the baggage claim area on an old-timer's transistor radio.  Then the beginning of the OT on the mini tv at the taxi stand, and the final plays in the cab to my ex's parents place on a little tv the cabby had on his dash.  Not the most ideal, but certainly memorable.  My parents, who were in Tempe, rang the house line there almost immediately after the game finished, so we got to bask in the glow together which was cool.  I was living in Prague at the time and didn't see many games, but it still felt great to finally have one in my lifetime (71 born)

For this year's game, I woke up at 2 am (living in Germany) and watched in my bedroom with 3 different laptops giving me 3 different feeds (ok ESPN, that was SUPER COOL, especially the coaches room and the uninterrupted feed) while my wife and 2.5 year old daughter slept in the next bedroom.  I'm not the quietest guy watching games, and a few times took off the headphones I wore in the first half to to whisper yell "run the damn ball!  Give it to Zeke!"  Such a great feeling, even though I proceeded then after 4+ hours of viewing to walk to the shower and on to school to teach all day.  Sucks teaching on only a few hours of sleep, but man the euphoria from watching every game, every step of the way this year even though I'm so far away, was awesome.  These past years are the most games I've watched and been invested in since I graduated and left Columbus in 99, and it so feels like my fandom and dedication have been rewarded.  Can't say the same for the Browns.....

Personal aside:  did you run in to J. Cherkasly at those Hampton shows?
