It's ridiculous to think that the #1 team in the country, who played three Top 15 teams in a row in physical matchups could have three bad drives in one half but then shut down that same team completely would lose it's ranking to a team that played Arkansas, Texas A &M and a very overrated Georgia team.
Ohio State didn't play a FCS school, Ohio State's three non conference opponents all played for their conference titles, two of them won.
It's not even close who the number one team is but the media wants LSU because they are scared for them to play Clemson.
Screw em' - Let LSU play Oklahoma and watch their D get torched - Bring on Clemson.
Never Block O ... always seemed way to controlling for my individualistic personality but I think the tradition is cool
A note aside - the folks in that 1956 pic would be early to mid 80’s by now. You wonder what their stories were after their time at OSU? Did they ever make it back ? Are they still with us? Did they have kids? Were they able to pass along their Buckeye spirit to future generations?
A long and storied tradition to be sure.
Finally, it’s a damm shame the money makers at OSU have priced out the real fans, you got a bunch of lobbyist clients, wealthy donors (don’t fault them for their money), glad handing politicians, and a student / recent grad culture who would rather be somewhere else after 20 minutes.
About the only section left that cheers is Block O. C Deck is good, what I call the last line of the real passionate fans.
