That 1969 Buckeye team was one of the best college football teams to ever take the field and I've seen a lot of them. They would have beaten _ichigan 99 out of 100 times. I am absolutely convinced that the team up north's current troubles are simply Karma catching up for that fluke game.
Thanks Buckeyes for getting this win against Cincinnati for Hondo.
Hondo had a motor like no other basketball player.
A great player and a better man.
The thing I remember most about him was when he turned down an extremely lucrative ABA offer to stay with the Celtics saying that he didn't want people to think he was in the game just for the money.
Candy Corn not making the final 4 is Unamerican!
Badgers will simply try to limit Buckeye's possessions/run clock. When you add their attempts to confuse the offense this will probably be a lower scoring game and closer than many think.
I'll take more of Wilson on punt returns please.
Give me a guy who runs and does not want to show how he moves on the dance floor.
Almost every year the Buckeyes go as far as the Slobs take them.
O-linemen are the most unappreciated players in football.
I've seen far too many TTUN teams beat great Buckeye teams in this lifetime. May it never happen again especially in the modern era where it could keep the Bucks out of the playoffs. Screw ichigan, may they never win another game.
I'm with Ramzy and Vance - giving the points in every game.
Lordy, Fields will see more blitzes than Poland in 39.
And thanks Vegas for giving Fick some "lack of respect" material.
If we had a good backup QB and would let Fields run the option he would have a monster year.
Lordy that was exciting!
If Gunnar has any of his uncle's (Fred Pagac) blood he will be one tough dude.
That loss hurt more than any other in my lifetime.
Most sports analysts at the time called the squad unbeatable.
I logged in for the first time in a month just to up-vote you and SNGINWV!
Some of the ESPN analysts were saying the Mannings sold the the Giants on the Jones pick. Good luck listening to athletes.
I remember when Havlicek was offered a huge salary to go play in the old ABA. He declined the money saying that he didn't want the people of Boston to think less of him or the general public to think he played the game for just money.
Once in a generation kind of person.
Rest in peace Hondo!
As someone who studied psychology before changing majors I can with certainty tell you that people like living in their fairy tale world and don’t like anything that challenges belief (a form of cognitive dissonance). I can only imagine that the down voters are upset that I pointed out that, e.g., the last two Buckeye coaches were both outstanding faith and family men but had no problem with the work responsibilities that put them atop their field.
Simple logic dictates that something is probably wrong at home and Schiano needed to take some dramatic action to prove sincerity or to help alleviate a problem. Some of these downvoters are not smart enough to figure out that “you have to wonder” is not the same as “here is the reason”.
Further, even if true it is not a slam against Schiano, since many a good man has fallen and latter gotten his act together.
Lots of coaches can focus on faith, family and put long hours in at work. You have to wonder if he got caught cheating on the wife.
Trapasso doesn't seem too fond of Buckeyes.
Holtmann makes his guys play D. Put that with some scorers and real point guards and the ceiling is unlimited.
Houston was a very athletic team. I admired the way they drove to the basket and managed to hit those seemingly off balance shots.
Nice season for the Buckeyes with guys who were never expected to do much.
If Luther and CJ show some offense as well as CJ making good decisions at the point we should be okay.
The Cardinals - ROTFLMAO!
