    Juggalo tears could never be manly. :lol:

    I like this point, however:

    It must suck to be so dispassionate about your own school that you would rather not go to games, instead choosing to watch (and root for) someone else's school on TV. I'm glad I never was, nor will be, in such a position.

    I don't see why this guy is blaming his roommates who just want to watch some big-time football:)

    Because he is from NY. He thought 14,000 fans in a half (or 1/3) filled stadium WAS big-time college football.

    Well that's what happens when you lay underneath a crying man.

    Easy answer...

    Because you didn't get accepted to Ohio State.

    What do Ohio State and UC students have in common?

    They both applied to Ohio State.

    The Buckeyes went into the 61 and 62 games ranked #1 in the nation and the top seed of 16 teams - the tournament had not expanded to 32 teams yet.

    Jerry Lucas was injured late in the semi-final game of 62 when he was undercut by Len Chappel of Wake Forest. He played the next night with a mild sprain in his knee.

    I had Fred Taylor for his basketball course and we managed to get him to talk about the Lucas - Havlicek- Nowell years - his observation was that the 60 team was better because of the other forward - Joe Roberts. Don Devoe, Doug MacDonald and somebody named Bobby Knight tried to fill out the second forward spot, but the drop off in talent there hurt them. Add also that Dick Reisbeck, the other guard in 62, was no Larry Siegfried. As Taylor stated, "Dick thought defense was something that went around de yard."

  8. To provide a baseline for comparison, and based on data from it looks like OSU has three victories over higher seeded teams (hopefully 4 after today). They beat 9 seed Kentucky as an 8 seed in 1987, and 1 seed Auburn and 3 seed St Johns as a 4 seed in 1999. The reason it isn't higher is that OSU is typically a high seed themselves. So typically, OSU had to win at least two or three games just to get an opportunity to beat a higher seed. When they were a 1 seed, obviously they couldn't beat a higher seeded team. Huggins' teams faced a similar challenge through the 90's, although to a lesser extent. Smaller programs like to pull this statistic out because it usually favors them. In short, I think it's a BS statistic.

    We would actually go to Nippert and nap on the sun-warmed bleachers during the UC football game after going to Kegs-n-Eggs at Big Reds. That is if the Ohio State game didn't coincide.

    I keep thinking tOSU was a 5 seed in '99, not a 4. Anyone else remember it wrong? :lol:
