The vote was a big part of the tie game's history, and Franklin's being hurt was a possible factor in the vote, so I didn't have a problem with the way it was described. That's how I remember it happening.NightmaresDad said:Bill, i think the '73 team was the best OSU team in history, and would put them up against any college team before or since.
Sounds like the reporter got his take on the game totally from Schembchler's point of view. Glad to see no bias
That also was a key event in changing the rules to allow more than 1 Big Ten team to go to Bowl games. After scUM once again came into The Game the next year (a 12-10 loss in 1974, with another Lantry miss following 4 good FG's by Tom Klaban) they sat home once again. In 1975, when tOSU was making a 4th straight Rose Bowl trip, scUM was allowed to go to the Orange Bowl as Big Ten runner-up (following the 21-14 tOSU victory in the Toilet). That Orange Bowl appearance was the first of 5 straight Bowl game losses for Bo.
