Ohio State Buckeyes Players pay tribute to Pat Tillman
http://www.10tv.com/Global/story.asp?S=4296400&nav=LUES ^

Posted on 01/02/2006 3:52:09 PM PST by LisaMalia

While watching the Ohio State/Notre Dame game, I heard this story from the commentators. I've never been more proud of my Buckeyes.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous; News/Current Events; US: Ohio
KEYWORDS: bowlgames; collegefootball; hero; ohiostate; pattillman; tribute
Football is just a game. Ohio State is just a team. In the last several years, we've seen the best and worst of Ohio State. Clarett was the worst.

But this is a story that I thought should get some attention. Thanks.

I watched that too, Lisa. It was great. I thought there would be a live thread for this game.

Go Bucks!

I started one but no one was into it.

By the way, see the Halftime time show where the LT just back from Iraq proposed to his girlfriend in front of a national audience?

No, I didn't see it. I bet they will show parts of it on the news. I'm using halftime to catch up on FReep news.

Talk about taking a chance.

Funny thing is, no one ever says no.

Best of luck for them

She would have been booed out of the stadium for doing that. Most men don't ask before knowing the answer though.

Noles have a good defense but they suck on offense.

So they will only score 30 points on offense.:)

Hardly. They are seriously fast on the field but athletes are not always football players. Also, their O line was decimated by injuries but they have not had a good QB in years.

I heard something about Clarett on the news today regarding an armed robbery. I am not surprised.

Fortunately, the Big Ten saved its best for last. Wisconsin and Barry Alvarez took #7 Auburn downtown. Joe Pa will do his part to make us all proud. Ohio State is cleaning ND's clock. ND just scored and missed the PAT. 21-13 OSU on top.

Saluting Pat Tillman is a great thing to do...unlike what the left wing jackass Ted Rall did to Pat. Rall's an idiot, but the left must love him.

Thank you instant replay. That fumble wasn't even close. He never had possession.

The play-by-play announcer sounds like John Kerry, arrgh! What a drone. How I miss Keith Jackson and Brent Musburger from ABC in the big games featuring Big Ten teams.

You beat me!

That instant replay may have saved the game for the Buckeyes. All the momentum was swinging with the Irish at that point.

I see/hear that now forgive me, just clicked to the game and posted in haste.

Brent must be coming off an awful flu, no spark, no enthusiasm, and his voice pitch still sounds like Kerry.

As long as ND gets plugged is all that matters.

Well I never thought I would root for Ohio State but Miami and whoever is playing ND are my two favorite teams. OS just wiped up the turf with the Irish. Now we wait and see if Mary will turn pro next year or stay in the NCAA. Notre Dame= most overrated football team, year after year, ever.

Thats the beauty of our military and also what makes it as great as it is.

Everyone in uniform makes a decision and decides that's what they want.

I made the decision to join and I don't regret it for a second. I don't hold it against anyone who decides not to join, because I'll be the first to admit that it's not for everyone.

Those OSU linebackers that want to grow their hair in tribute to Pat Tillman? God Bless em.

Since the Buckeye team members could not have known they would be going to Arizona at the time they started to grow their hair, so the story about having done so to honor Tillman, who played for AZ, is not true. They grew it as a vow to beat Michigan. They may well have left it long to honor Tillman, but they did not grow it long for him.

In the last several years, we've seen the best and worst of Ohio State. Clarett was the worst.

[Monday Night Football intro music. Cue player intros.]

Maurice Clarett... THE Ohio State Penitentiary.

I heard this today and thought it was funny. I looked for a thread to put it on. (I like OSU, for the record-- Mike Vrabel '96.)

Cheers.
