    I can't wait for the chance to get back at Carlisle Indian School!

    BTW, I wonder if Jim Thorpe was on the Carlisle team which beat the Bucks....

    Great stuff with not much football in the news. Any idea what our largest margin of victory against scUM is?
  5. Nixon

    Nixon Wears Scarlet-colored glasses

    I'll check, but it's gotta be 50-14 in 1968.

    Wrong. 38-0 in 1935.

    Thanks, Nixon.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    The Buckeyes must have called it W[​IMG][​IMG]st[​IMG]r(like rooster), instead of the preferred pronunciation of WUHS-tuhr. Those freaks hate it when you say the name of their town like that.:roll2:

    We're doing pretty good considering we lost the first three in the series.
    Also, how many times did JoPa have a bye week coming into this game? guess both teams had bye weeks going into the 12/26/80 game

    He's missing the game on 11/16/1912 when they beat us 37-0.
  11. MightbeaBuck

    Guess so. Just checked his database, and he is missing from 1905 through 1912. Weird. I think Stassen did better using his previous database than he does now with James Howell's.

    Not to point out the negative but that 63-??? blow out loss to Penn State in 1994 is not on the list either.

    I believe that all data IS correct.

    James Howell DOES list the PSU/OSU game in 1912, BUT lists us as a NON-IA opponent.

    1912-Penn State (Independent)
    10/5 vs. Carnegie Tech (non-IA) W 41 0
    10/12 vs. Washington & Jefferson (8-3-1) W 30 0
    10/19 @ Cornell (3-7) W 29 6
    10/26 vs. Gettysburg (non-IA) W 25 0
    11/2 @ Pennsylvania (7-4) W 14 0
    11/9 vs. Villanova (3-3) W 71 0
    11/16 @ Ohio State (non-IA) W 37 0
    11/28 @ Pittsburgh (3-6) W 38 0
    8-0-0 * 285 6

    In essence, Stassen (and Howell) computes their data while factoring in the distinction of the "Major Division" of football ... at the moment that is classified as D-1. Back then I'm not sure how the major division was classified ... before the NCAA in 1937.

    OSU's Conference Affiliation
    1890-1901* Independent
    1902-1921* Ohio Athletic Conference
    1913-20XX* Big Ten Conference

    In 1912 OSU was a member of the OAC. Not until 1913 did we become member of the BigTen. Interestingly, OSU stayed a dual member (BigTen and OAC) until 1921. I think this is the difference between Stassen and CFDW. Many would conclude that Stassen is MORE accurate because he only counts Major Division wins when a school was actually considered as playing in the top division of College Football. CFDW does not make this distinction and lists all games played (won or lost) even if the school was not considered a Major Division member during some of those years.

    Long story short .. OSU wasn't considered as playing in college football's major division during the 1912 season ... thus Stassen doesn't list this game with PSU.

    Ooops, I forgot to add ... nice stuff gdub!

    "They have scored 50+ points in a game 68 times with the first being 10/14/1916 where they beat Oberlin 116-0."

    My grandfather (who I never knew) had the ignominious honor of being captain of that Oberlin team. The family story goes something like this. It was during WWI and all of the starters from the previous year's team were gone. Then, during the week before the Ohio State game, all the seniors got busted in some fraternity prank and got kicked off the team. My grandfather, a junior, was the only one left on the team with any playing experience, and he didn't have much. But they made him captain and he led his hapless teamates, some of whom had not even been on the team until that week, to the slaughter. I think that stood as an NCAA record for the most lop-sided loss for many years.
