Sweet. Make sure you are in the Shoe next year to watch the curb stomping that awaits scUM.
I was there in 2010 so it happened
Attended: 3-1 (W: 2002, 2005, 2006 and L: 2000)
Attended: 1-0 (2010)
29-24-2 (fuck the "vacated" [Mark May]...we won last year). 2-0 in person (2006, 2008).
12-12-1 (counting the vacated game)
Games I've been to: 4-0 (98,02,04,09)
It doesn't have 2011 in the database yet, but no one likes that year, anyway.
Starting with (and including) the 1976 season, Ohio State is 16-19-1 against Michigan. Tressel and Cooper cancel each other out, and Bruce and Fickell cancel each other out. It all rests on Hayes's last 3 seasons (all losses). Hopefully Meyer can break Tressel's record of 7 straight wins now.
Games I've been to: 1986 (L), 1988 (L), 1990 (L), 1992 (T), 2000 (L), 2004 (W), 2006 (W) - 2-4-1.
Counting the vacated game and this year's I'm 11-9-1
1-0 in games I've been at (2010....still counts )
Born in Dec 1977 my 1st scum game was Woody's last.
22-22-2, overall, as of last Saturday.
4-1 in person, including Coop's finest hour in 1998. The only loss was Harbaugh's guarantee in 1986.
Looks like I should go more often.
If you got Coop a victory, then I agree.
Yup. Up until Texas 05 (and again USC) I was undefeated in 30+ games at the stadium including '98 scUM.
My grandfather has a piece of the grass from that day, that I pulled up with my Dad, growing in his side yard still.
I love being a Buckeye.
Your 2-4-1 record of games you've attended is the same as Bo's head coaching record in The Game before you were born. Woody had Bo under control until you came along!!1!11!1!!1
I can only blame myself...
And maybe those Egyptian Pyramids. They must have something to do with this. No way were they built by aliens ONLY to house the dead pharoahs. They must have something to do with this rivalry. Come to think of it, I've never seen one up close. A pyramid, I mean. I think I saw a dead pharoah in college. But he might have been one of the physics graduate assistants. There was another physics graduate assistant who had this super long beard. It may have reached down to his crotch, but that might be exaggerating. Not very much, though. Certainly it went past his gut. The rumor was that he wanted to shave it, or at least trim it, but his wife threatened to leave him if he ever did that. He was kind of a dork, but I wouldn't be surprised if he hunted bears or something in his time off. I bet he was somehow involved with those first three games, from 76 to 78.
Well, I apologize I don't check in or post as much as I once did, but I'm still around. I don't have time to read every post so forgive me if any of this is repeat...
1 - Even though I feel the punishment was deserved, I, of course, do not recognize the '10 vacated win over TSUN. We all know what happened on the field and that doesn't change the record.
What this means to me is that we have now won 10 out of the last 12 games against TSUN...or put another way TSUN is 2-10-0 against us.
For many here, you know the pain of that combination of numbers all too well, and as someone who spent my HS and college years enduring the Cooper losses, this is special because JT and UFM have brought justice back to the rivalry.
Of course, since there are no longer ties, next years game can put us over the top in a 13 year span.
I don't have the time to do it myself, but I think it would be an interesting read to do some kind of statistical analysis over the past 25 games.
2 - I've heard comparisons to this year's team to the '02 team because of the close wins...Ok fine, but I think a better historical parallel that is shaping up is between the '12 & '13 seasons and the '68 & '69 seasons.
While this year's edition didn't win the NC as the '68 did for obvious reasons, the do have an extremely rare opportunity to run the table again next season based on their schedule and returning starters.
If the season starts to play itself out the way we hope, will UFM use the players from the '69 team to teach a lesson from their past as they head into the week against TSUN?
Hopefully UFM will have another opportunity to deliver on a historical injustice to the Ohio State football family.
3 - One of the dreams of my life is to see Ohio State finally take the series lead against the TSUN. The difficulty here is that it took 16 attempts for Ohio State (as a small agriculture school against a well established university) to get its first win.
I believe the series is 46-44 since 1918 when both schools were Big Ten members. There are other ways to break it down - since 1935 (final game of season), since 1951 (post WWII & Hayes first year), etc. which generally put Ohio State in the lead. But I want the overall.
At 58-45-6 (again, not recognizing the vacated win), if we win 3 out of 4 it will take 17 years, if we win 2 out of 3 it will take 19 years. Assuming UFM coaches for 10 years with continued success against TSUN, it will take at least one other coach to get us over that mark.
