O-H-I-O!  It's BUCKEYE TIME!  Tonight kicks off the 2010-2011 college football season!  And, us Buck-Nuts are even more excited since the "powers that be" decided to keep "the game against the evil team up North" as the last game of the season once the conference expands!  I am in in a Buckeye frenzy! 

To get us all more geared up for tonight's kickoff and for the rest of the season, I found some facts that we can throw around our not so hyped up friends!

*This is the 121st season of Ohio State Football

*Jim Tressel is 9-0 in season openers at Ohio State

*The Buckeyes will be going for their 6th consecutive Big Ten Championship

* Ohio State is 52-5 at Ohio Stadium since the start of 2002

* Ohio State is one of only 3 FBS teams to record at least 10 wins in each of the past five seasons (VT, USC)

*Ohio State has played in 8 BCS bowls, the most all-time....ahead of USC and Oklahoma

*Ohio State has had 55 consecutive crowds of more than 100,000 at Ohio Stadium

*Ohio State has not lost a home opener since 1978 (Woody Hayes' final season)

*Ohio State and Marshall have met just once before on September 11,2004 with the Buckeyes prevailing 24-21 on a last second field goal by Mike Nugent

*Last season the Buckeyes became the first FBS team to beat 5 teams that finished with at least 10 wins

*Ohio State has finished in the 10 in the final AP poll in each of the last five seasons.  That has only happened once before in OSU history.  The Bucks finished in the top 10 each year from 1972-1976

So.....Let me hear all my "Buck-Nuts" shout it out.......O - H
