In a decade of success, Ohio State took advantage of their championship opportunities.
Getting there wasn't always easy, and Buckeye fans will no doubt wring their hands about some of the stumbles along the way, but when Ohio State found themselves with a chance to prove that they were at the top of either the Big Ten or the entire country, they delivered in spades. Sports were good and our existence was validated on a regular basis.
Michigan State, man. Freaking Michigan State.
Unheralded, unloved, ignored and disdained, we curse your name, O Spartans!
