    BuckeyeTrail Michael Jenkins...does it again!!!

    What I do know is that the panthers-cowboys wild card game last year was fixed. the panthers would have won anyway, but it's still disgusting nonetheless.

    Stanley Jackson's the only one that ever made me wonder.

    If it wasn't for the fact that Gamble overplayed every single hitch and go route. I would have said Gamble v. Wisconsin. Tibor, those were some of the examples I was thinking of. I was at work during the MSU debacle, and only caught the high/low lights. What would make Katzenmoyer suspect?

    Yeah, I don't agree with anything concerning the 98 MSU game. The Bucks were just snake bit from mid-game on. I remember a shanked punt by MSU hitting an OSU blocker in the back and bouncing right back to MSU. It was one of those things where I just the knew the ball was bouncing the wrong way.

    no way

    :shake: :susp: :sneaky: I refuse to believe that any player wearing scarlet and gray would not play when they step between those lines

    When I saw the article I didn't post it.

    But I knew someone would, and that folks would start speculating like this. Groundless speculation due to some college players making mistakes on the field is not something I want to participate in. If you're thinking about it, please think twice before adding any more Buckeyes to this undignified list.

    Harlan Jacobs definitely blew the LSU game in 1841. It was obvious the way he missed all those field goals.

    Rampant undocumented speculation like this is in no way positive, nor can it have any positive effects. There is no point to this. I understand it coming from Tibor, but come on, folks, let's give our guys in the scarlet and gray some credit.


    Nixon, we have had our differences, but this is one thread where I will applaud you're heralded defense of our Buckeyes.
