Greatest Drives

The 2005 season’s come-from-behind win over rival Michigan capped off by an epic, last-minute drive by the Buckeyes got me to thinking.  Where would that drive rank among all fabled marches in OSU history?  There are many terrific books and videos with various countdowns of Ohio State’s greatest games, players and moments.  But with Troy Smith and Company’s heroics in Ann Arbor that season, I decided to compile a list of the great drives that the men of Scarlet and Gray have put together over the years.  The dramatic, game-deciding series where your heart was in your throat, where the stars who came through time and time again led the Bucks down the field, and where role players you didn’t always see in the headlines chipped in their part or made that one memorable big play that defined their career.  As always, I welcome your feedback.  As the late Casey Kasem would say, “And now, on with the countdown”. – Joe-S-U
