Earl Campbell on offense
Defense is a bit tougher I'll go with Hugh Green. Dude was everywhere on the field 
 Bubba Smith although I didn't get to see much of Bubba on the tv in college

I've got to pursue it more aggressively. I'm retired now and have the time. I have several friends that are of Mormon faith. 20 years ago I showed one of them the main book on the family lineage.  He was impressed.  Next day at work he gave me an address and contact in SLC.  He said make a copy of the first couple of pages and send it to them.  If I was cool with it I could then send them the book and they would make a copy of it for them.  I sent them a copy of the cover and the first couple of pages.  Weeks later I got a very nice letter back thanking me and informed me they already had a copy. Blew my mind a bit.  That was 20 years ago.

Many of my ancestors fought in the civil war. Ohio 62nd 64th & one more as far as I know from family books.  A couple are buried in the south or died of illness in the south.  One lies in Beaufort South Carolina. A casualty July 18, 1863 during the assault on Fort Wagner, South Carolina.  Never took the genealogy route. Wonder what else would pop out as the family is scattered all over Ohio.  I'm like 8th Ohio generation documented in the family bibles.

This really sucks.  RIP Sweet Pea. Many fighters make into their mid 50s  damaged from the sport / $ / fame.  He seemed to be settled in and enjoying his saged mentoring of the sport. Living a comfortable life.  Stuff is just not fair sometimes.

I remember that game more than I would like. We had the perfect weekend planned. Me and my Buckeye Bro packed up the families for a few days in the Bay area. Kids, wifes & grandmas in tow.  Plan was catch the Stones in Oakland, grandmas watching the kids. Get up and watch the Buckeyes destroy Penn State while sending the families out and about to shop. We made it to the Stones, fantastic show.  Watched about...too much of that beat down.  Spent the rest of the day in a gloom. It was significant as it was the day our wives put the stake in the ground, demanded we would never ever again ruin a family Saturday due to a Buckeye loss.

I enjoyed reading through it. It will look different after September for sure. Many Buckeyes snubbed will climb way, way up as we get rolling.  Was surprised Martinez wasn't listed.  We are going to have to keep an eye on that guy and those cornheads this year. imho

Funny,  I have had one dream years ago.  I was at the shoe, the game had started and I couldn't find my way into the seating sections.  I was wondering around inside the stadium lobby / vending areas hearing the roar of the crowds and getting more and more panic / pissed off running & running trying to find a way in.  Woke myself up doing so.

I really enjoyed reading through the picks and comments. All solid.  It would be nice to find a spot in here somewhere for Corny Greene during the Bucks run offense years.  74-75 season as Archie wins his 2 Heismans, Corny managed to put up some great stats and honors in those years.  One of the least talked about QBs of the great QBs @ tOSU.

2× All-Big-10 (1974, 1975), All-American (1975), Big 10 MVP (1975 when Archie wins the Heisman),
Rose Bowl MVP (1974), Hula Bowl MVP (1976)

I've had BBQ most everywhere I traveled back in the day.  I don't have a favorite style except that the meat should not be served with gobs of sauce hanging on it.  If I had to pick one it would be Arthur Bryant's in Kansas City.

I enjoy Canada for many reasons.  The Northern Lights I've seen up there are spectacular. This picture looks about like what I've seen.  Just a lake in front as opposed to a stream.

I lived a short walk to Fat City off Jean Place back then.  1978ish, those were some wild times for me.  I remember they had pay phones in the city holding cells back then.  Let you keep your change. "Better get your call cause you won't be getting another for a long time"    lmao

Z07, funny you mentioned Tulane and jogged my memory.  40 yrs ago I lived in Metry.  On a fishing trip down to Grand Isle I found a Tulane sweatshirt on the beach.  Was in pretty good shape.  Became a boat shirt for fishing,  working on the boat. So I guess Tulane goes on my short list. :)

Tedeschi Trucks Band & after last weeks thread, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram is going to be a must.
