Clearly in the wake of the Hoop teams thrilling win last night, the pages are being turned and a Maize and Blue era will soon drape this great land. Wasn't that awesome last night!!!
Ok, we're 24 hours away from the osu game....and I want to hear people's memories.....both good and bad.....about this great rivalry.
I have so many....but right now, I would have to say 1989. We did not know it was Bo's last game at home, but it was. I was a 17-year-old senior in high school.
I got on the field as the closing minutes ticked off the clock, celebrated with the students and players over another Rose Bowl berth and got steamrolled by the police escort Bo had to get him off the field. Bo was grinning ear to ear as he watched one of the cops pick me up off the ground and he said 'kid, if you plan on being on the field, you better watch out.'
I met the man years later at a bar down in Florida and shared this story....he laughed hard, but said he couldn't remember.
I'll drop some more memories as the day gets going, but I want to hear everyone else's!!
