Overview

Examining a simple question—What is so special about Ohio State football?—this book provides a forum for the school’s greatest players and coaches from the past nine decades to express why they are so proud to be a part of the storied tradition that is Buckeye football. Many players took this unique and exclusive opportunity to set the record straight about a few topics that have never before been addressed, including Rex Kern revealing what happened in the bitter 1969 defeat to Michigan, Chris Spielman explaining why he almost chose Michigan instead of Ohio State, Cornelius Greene talking about the real discomfort behind his ulcers, and Joe Germaine detailing how he gave President Clinton’s Secret Service a scare. From Charlie Ream in the 1930s and Paul Warfield in the 1960s to Urban Meyer’s first days on the job after taking over after the 2011 season, What It Means to Be a Buckeye brings together a who’s who of Ohio State football icons in a fashion that no other book has ever accomplished, making it the ultimate keepsake for any fan of Buckeye football.
