Daily Devotions for Die-Hard Fans: Ohio State Buckeyes combines the great passion of the Buckeye fan with the grand passion of the fan of Christ into one set of devotions. The result is a book that is fun while providing a time of reflection about God and your faith.
-Ohio State once won a football game with some of its players standing on the sideline in their street clothes.
-Samantha Prahalis didn't break the record everyone came to see; she broke another one.
-A heart attack once prevented a postgame brawl.
-Each season the OSU men's soccer team remembers a freshman who played in only a handful of matches.
-In a poll to name the new OSU head football coach, an inmate serving a life sentence got more votes than Woody Hayes did.
These stories and more are recounted here. Also appearing are Archie Griffin, Jesse Owens, Troy Smith, Jerry Lucas, Jim Tressel, and many others. Their stories - along with legendary games, improbable victories, and historical events - are told with a twist: They are all tied to God's story.
