Ohio State’s first football game was played in Delaware, Ohio, in May 1890 against our own Ohio Wesleyan. The field – if you want to call it that - was bordered on one sideline by the hill that rises to Merrick Hall and Phillips Hall, and on the other sideline, by the Delaware Run. OSU won 20-14.

Saluting your senior drum major at his last football game and almost start crying because of the emotion in the moment and almost making him cry as well. Its all hard to explain
