oops and helmets from CFN

    Interesting if nothing else. If you go there check out the all-time Hoops and Helmets. Buckeyes make the list for the B-Ball/football combo in 61-62.

    The Oops and helmets this year is a great rip on PSU. I know a lot of you aren't big on kicking them while they are down but believe me if you grew up around them in the 80's, they were almost unbearable with their elitisim(very NDish). I am personally enjoying the shit out of them sucking balls for so long now.

    I dont understand this quote, from the first line of that...
    "The Lion fencing squad is a favorite to win a record 10<SUP>th</SUP> national championship this month."
    Were not, The Ohio State Buckeye Fencers the National Champions just last year??

    The article didn't say "10th consecutive national championship"...

    Yeah, I love ripping on Penn State too. But, it's just getting way too easy.

    Anyways, the main point of my post is: WHAT ABOUT 1998/1999 OSU BEING IN THE ALL-TIME GREATS?!?!? The Bucks had one of the strongest football teams I've ever seen (damn that MSU game), with a thriller in the Rose Bowl, and a #2 final ranking. The B-Ball team had a solid year (#2 in the Big Ten), a fourth seed, and then an unforgettable ride to the FINAL-FRICKING-FOUR!!!

    :box: :crazy: :mad1: :shake: :hatepc: :teeth: :evil: :pissed: :drunks: :huh:

    casey_buckeye 3rd time is a charm! Miami in January!

    We were in the Sugar Bowl that year, not the Rose. We were in the Rose Bowl in 96/97.

    D'oh!!!!!

    Holy Crap!!!! I don't believe how stupid I am. Either way, damn that MSU game, and we still grabbed the #2 ranking. My point still valid, even with my wealth of ignorance.

    I don't see how the '61/'62 group isn't ranked higher...#1 ranked football team in the country that gets shafted out of playing for the national title, and the basketball team being national runners-up.

    I wonder what the list would be if you simply added the football and basketball end-of-the-year polls. For example, '98 would be #6 (assuming we were #4 in basketball).

    And in 2002, they'd be #1. #1 in FB and 0 in basketball. AWESOME! But then, by my logic, there'd be a bunch of teams not ranked in either, and they'd all be #0. SUCK!
