anyway, I'm watching espn classic of the '95 tOSU-mich game. biakabatuka was an absolute beast. just watching this makes me tear up for many, many reasons. go blue.
mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
I remember freezing my ass off there at the Big House, and it was simply amazing to watch all of those holes open up in front of Touchdown Tim!
my favorite game of all time (although LC's final game will always be up there as well)
anyway, does anyone think that Brandon Minor vs. Penn State this year looked (at times, obviously not 313 yards worth) like shades of touchdown Tim dragging defenders downfield?
Brandon Minor has a rare combination of strength and speed, I hope we get a full season of 100% Brandon Minor next year. I think he could be unreal.
I was at that game. 11 years old. Before the game my dad and I walked by the OSU band setting up on the soccer field off of State Street. Walking towards us were a couple of band members as we were heading towards the Stadium, and being the cheeky kid I was, I said, 'Go Blue!' And the band members? Well one said 'Fuck you.' My dad was more shocked than angry, he said something like, 'Come on, he's just a kid.' Didn't make a big deal out of it and we kept on walking. My real introduction to the rivalry. Then I sat by the Michigan band during the game, and I couldn't see most of the action over the instruments. I had to judge the play results by the crowd reactions. But it was awesome. I do remember Woodson's game sealing interception.
If you go back and watch the highlights, Biakabutuka was amazing, but some of the holes he ran through were unreal. I think that's the most inspired game an offensive line has ever played.
