I was in a bar in Dublin and accidentally bumped into an attractive girl around my age at the time, 30 ish. She got all in my face and said, "do you know who I am?". I told her no and asked who she was. She said, "I'm Kirk herbsreit's fiancé" (showing me this big rock). I quickly said, "Who's that?"
What a b!tch....
Played football with Archie - probably 1976 or 1977
He was horrible!!!

My friends and I were in the WHAC In spring 2005 for a practice. My buddy's dad is beast friends with Coach Tress and we got to watch all the drills. We were talking with Simon Frasier while he was preparing for the combine. He is an extremely nice human being. However, another friend of mine who was a notre dame fan was on a bench press and Hawk and Carpenter (two absolute monsters) came and kicked him off for wearing Irish stuff. It was a great and comical moment. I really hope our linebackers start to play like those guys.
Ron Stokes interned at my Mom's work. He came to my 8th grade Championship BB game and then came to my house for pizza afterword. Was on cloud 9!!! That was his senior year at OSU. I'm in sales and have met Herbie, Clark Kellogg, Lawrence Funderburk, Mike Doss.....all were very nice. Met Vrabel in Maui while on vacation. NFL meetings were going on and he was a player rep. for the Pats. My dad and him talked about golf for a good 20 minutes.....he was very funny and gracious.
Nov. 24th, 2001 - My wife and I are freezing our butts off in Ann Arbor taking in The Game. Just before kickoff a young couple sits down next to us. The first half was awesome! Our defense dominated and after a safety we had established a 23-0 lead. But this was Ann Arbor and this was that team. I knew all too well what to expect in the second half. The past 13 years I had agonized through Cooper’s 2-10-1 failure. In addition we hadn’t won at Michigan since 1987! 14 long years. We could have been ahead 50-0 and I was conditioned to think that we would blow it.
The guy next to me seemed to be thinking the same thing. And as the Buckeyes came out, our cheering grew louder. I’ll never forget how this complete stranger and I seemed to be in the trenches together yelling, screaming, willing our team on. It was like we would have given our very lives for Jim Tressel’s promise to ring true. Once we recovered the onside kick with 2:26 left we were so elated and jumping up and down I noticed that the guy next to me had a very special necklace on. The golden pants swayed around his neck as we danced around. I stopped, grabbed him, pointed to the pants and said, “Who are you?”
“I’m Jeff Uhlenke.” He said.
In disbelief I stated like a history book, “But you were captain of the Buckeyes the last time we won here!”
“I know!” he shouted barely able to hold in his happiness.
I looked over to my wife and smiled. Then I said, “This is so cool.”
I will never forget standing there with one arm around Jeff and another around my wife singing Carmen Ohio. As we did, the players hoisted Tressel and Shane Olivea (who had broken his leg in the game) onto their shoulders. We all stood there crying. To this day, it is my proudest moment as a Buckeye.

The best was Duncan Griffin, Archie's little brother 1978. By chance stood in line with him to get a parking sticker. Told me Archie stories the whole time. Later as I was walking across campus I glanced across the street to see Duncan walking with a group of football players. He was looking at me and waved hi. Classy guy.
The worst was Art Schlicter. Went to a roomates farm for the weekend . He went to Miami Trace with Art and we went to their basketball game. Art was their and he took me to meet Art. While we were sitting behind Art, a little girl came up for his autograph . After he signed it he asked, "are you old enough to pee yet"?
The hurt look on that poor girls face has stayed with me all these years.

I saw Jim Tressel first year he was here at Easter Brunch at a hotel downtown. He was with his family. I was too nervous to go up to him to say hi but I'm pretty sure he had the eggs bendict....that's all I got.
During my Freshman Orientation at OSU, we had to pair up and introduce some randomnly assigned person. I sat down with a young guy who didn't seem that much terribly bigger than me. He told me that he was there on a football scholarship, which I thought was pretty cool. He told me his name was "C", which I thought was a nickname, but he assured me it was his real name spelled Cie. We hung out after the session was over and talked sports, girls and the like. Afterwards, we went and played basketball at the court across from the towers. The part I found most cool, was that he eventually sacked Ken Dorsey on 4th and 1 during the NC Game. I hope I run into him sometime and see if he remembers me and shake his hand for one of the most memorable plays in Buckeye history.
