12 National Titles. 9 Heismans. 113 Consensus All-Americans.  81 players  currently on NFL rosters.

Ray Lewis. Cris Carter. Michael Irvin. Jack Tatum. Warren Sapp. Orlando Pace. Jim Kelly. Eddie George. Bernie Kosar. Archie Griffin.

A lot of history will be swirling around Ohio Stadium this Saturday when the University of Miami Hurricanes (the U) and The Ohio State Buckeyes take the field. If it’s anything like the last time these two storied college football programs crashed into each other, the 2003 Tostito’s Fiesta Bowl BCS National Championship Game, there will be multitudes of fans on the edge of barstools and sofas wringing their hands, pulling their hair, and shouting at televisions.
