I Remember it well. It was September 26th 1987. The 7th ranked Buckeyes were playing a game with LSU at Baton Rouge . I had to see the game....unfortunately that same day was my Mother and Father-In-Laws 50th Anniversary and party for that event. It was scheduled for 1pm.(right at game time).
The church where they had the party had a small room that the janitor worked out of and he had the game on a 12 inch black and white TV. Duh..that's all I needed....needless to say I spent THEIR wonderfull party day and anniversary occassion running back and forth to see snatches of the game, instead of spending time at our family table with my family and the honorees.
I was back at the small TV when the Buckeyes scored the "go-ahead" TV wiht 11 minutes left in the 4th quarter and went ahead 13-10, Just as I rushed back to the banquet table, it was my turn to say a word of congradulations to the "bride and groom" after 50 wonderfull years as I was handed the mic and be recorded on the video for the event. What did I say>. Full of excitment of the go ahead TV I yelled into the mic and camera, "Go Bucks"!! I thought my wife would die of embarassment and I should have, but giving to the excitment of the ball game I did not, at least not until I saw the video later.....I looked like a total horses-azz..and probably deserved the critizim....the good news was that my Mother and Father-in -law forgave me, knowing my love for the Buckeyes! The Buckeyes went on to a 13-13 tie in that game...looking back the over the years and both of my wifes parents being gone now, and my wife and I just a few days from our 50th, I just can't believe I made a fool like that out of myself....anyway GO Bucks...ha ha..

Watching in horror as tim biakabutukka ran for 300+ against our title hopes in 95...effing Copper. OSU got the guy drafted into the NFL and he was a complete bust.
he wouldn't let his players pose in the Playboy All-American magazine edition, he said, "Cause you can't play football with an erection."
Definitely at the NC game in New Orleans against LSU. Won the trip with Allstate was sitting in a sea of LSU fans and we were up in the 1st quarter. My buddy that was with me said I lost my voice in the 1st quarter from yelling. Then LSU took over the game put a beat down on the bucks and I had to sit there, it was horrible.

I have 2 that immediately come to mind.
First watching in horror as we lost to Air Force in the 80's. I was actually visiting my Aunt at the time in Mansfield. The town was deathly silent that nite.
Second, would have been losing to Michigan State in the Mid 90's with a team that had like 5 first rounders on it. I believe Saban was the opposing coach for that one. Goodbye number 1 ranking.
When they put Cooper under the ground, I will still be remebering a lot of his loses and having a hard time feeling bad. I don't want to root for anyone to lose their job, but was never more happy than the day he lost his.
Tressel getting exposed while I was at a regional business meeting in Chicago and we were all sitting around the hotel bar tv when espin announced the nightmare... all of the meeting attendees knew that I am a huge Buckeye fan,,, try to explain that nightmare???
Florida NC game loss and the Michigan State loss in the 90's
tressel being exposed i had such faith in him.....there is a local idiot talk radio host here in gr call "huge" bill simmionson he is such an idiot.....he was ripping tressel/pryor and the rest i was so confident in tressel i wrote a letter to the editor calling huge a hack and a pos also said at the time tressel is our coach and pryor our qb and they will be when we kick scum ass in november..... only to find him right epic fail
THE JOHN COOPER ERA!!
