Recapping the 100 Days to Ohio State Football Countdown

Ohio State Football Buckeyes Michigan

Our long national 100-day Ohio State football countdown is now in the books, but over the past few days I’ve had several people reach out wanting to see the lists in their entirety, so here you go.

Who are the Top 100 Buckeyes of The-Ozone era?

We have them in order from “worst” to best.

Below that are the 100 best games of the year, the 100 best individual matchups, and 100 things that we can’t wait to see this year. These final three topics have no specific order, but they are relayed in the order in which they were published.

I am sure you will agree with every list, specifically the Top 100 Players.

Should you like to remark how much you agree with the rankings done by Tom Orr and myself, please share your feedback in the comments section below.

If you do not agree, you can also let us know that as well, but I don’t expect anybody to actually have any issues.

So I hope this helps. Have a grand Thursday.

  1. I’ve been a happy man since John Porentas brought Tom back. My 2 favourite Buckeye writers in the same place again! Orr and Gerdeman! I don’t hold out much hope since Tony bailed on it awhile ago, but with Tom back is there ANY chance that The Buckeye Watch could be revived? You could share it like you did this countdown and I KNOW that readers loved that feature.
    Thanks for all you both do.

  2. Putting the list together had to be a pain in the rear end. Great job bringing it all together.

  3. AWESOME JOB! 3 months of daily Buckeye insights/memories and college football tidbits. Thank you!!

  4. Thank you, Ozone, for an entertaining few weeks. As for a critique, all that matters is, you nailed the #1 game this year. Well done on that. And of course well done on the other, secondary stuff.
