    There was a time when I insisted that day 53 in the countdown should evoke only one name (though admittedly there had been other good players who wore the number).

    This picture evokes not just one name that is important to Buckeye history, but two; I believe no countdown is complete without it.

    Vernon Gholston rolling over a dUMb QB. A similar picture with a Buckeye in a home uni is coming up in less than a week.

    A long snapper who started for four years and yet is known only for the pictures taken of him, deserves to have a picture or two in the countdown

    From another thread: 2020 Team Discussion Thread

    Copied it here just to record that it was on this day in the countdown that we learned that they have a plan to start the season on time and that the countdown will not have to be amended. Seems fitting that we got the news on Archie Griffin day.

    Seeing this actually made goose bumps appear on my arms, and made a tear or two appear in my eyes. THANKS "Big Daddy"

    Peace
