    Which game had the best crowd in the last 25 years of The Shoe? (Noise...electiricty...enthusiasm...excitement...etc...just all together a great crowd)

    I'd say the history of the Shoe, but a lot of us haven't been around that long :wink:

    I gotta go with the Fiesta Bowl. We took over that place and - while it certainly didn't get as loud as the Shoe yesterday - that crowd participated in every play and ultimately was a difference maker.

    But for home games yesterday was tough to beat.

    I would have to say 2002 SCUM game, it was crazy in the shoe, with everything on the line and the game coming down to the final play, that place was electric.....its hard to pick just one game though.

    I wanted to go with Other, and vote for the crowd watching Ferrel do the cowbell skit. But couldn't vote against the 2004 Michigan massacre.

    I voted for the game yesterday. Of others I've been to, honorable mention to 2002 NC State, 2002 PSU, 2002 scUM, 2003 Washington, 2003 Purdue.

    I'd like to say the craziest I've ever seen a crowd go was 2002 @ Purdue. Their "south stands" were all scarlet and grey, and I am amazed they are still standing after the celebration of Jenkins catch!

    Of the games I was at. the '02 Metachicken game was the loudest. Then the '04 TSUN. Then Purdue '02. Then my ex wife.

    2003 Fiesta Bowl

    The 2003 Fiesta Bowl felt like a home game. The scarlet and gray crowd was going around the stadium chanting "O-H-I-O." Heck, even the Varsity Club took over a local Tempe establishment. It felt like a tropical version of Columbus. What a game!

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    I can't come up with the year, me thinks it was 73, but it was a down year for the Bucks and scUM QB Tim Franklin (from Ohio) shot off his mouth a couple of times before the game. Q. "Does everyone from Ohio go to Michigan." Franklin, "Only the best." The buck D shut him down and their kicker...Bob Gentry?... missed at two chances to tie the game in the fouth quarter and then the bucks held them for 4 downs inside the five to end the game. The crowd was so pumped by Franklin's comments and by a banged up team that played their hearts out for nothing but the glory of beating tsun.

    Wingate1217 Bring on the next opponent!!

    For me it was the '85 Iowa game. Iowa came in ranked #1 in the nation and tOSU got off to a great start with a blocked punt. I remember the weather changing to rain in the second half, and Chuck Long kept on asking the ref to quiet the crowd because their offense couldn't hear the signals. One of the big plays of the game is when Iowa had the ball inside OSU's 20 and went for it on fourth and 2. Chris Spielman met Ronnie Harmon in the hole for a loss. Game Buckeyes! I remember hearing a report that the crowd got so loud that one of the press tables collapsed from the vibrations.

    2002 vs Michigan.
    Ohio State was just one game away from our first national championship on over 30 years. And the only team that stood in our way was our most hated rival, Michigan. Of course the Wolverines were looking for a huge upset, but on that Saturday afternoon, it just wasn't going to happen if the Buckeyes and Buckeye faithful had anything to say about it. After every Buckeye touchdown or first down or whatever, the entire stadium just erupted.
    I'll remember that game for the rest of my life.

    I voted for Washington 2003. The only other game I've been to is the 2004 Fiesta Bowl, which wasn't nearly as sweet. I wish my parents never moved to Vegas. =\

    I know what game it surely is not...

    Any game played at Northwestern.

    Several Ohio high schools seat more fans than that place
