I'm enjoying the college football season so far, watching Ohio State (my Alma Mater) cream their opponents – the latest being Rutgers on Saturday. It's not that I'm a big sports fan; it's just nice to have something else occupy for mind for a while and get some relief from the stresses and problems of everyday life.
(By the way, did you know that the famous cartoon character Mister Magoo is a Rutgers alumnus? It's part of the bio that United Productions of America created for their popular cartoon star.)
Anyway, fifty years ago, Ohio State had just beaten the N. Carolina Tar Heels 29-14 on September 30, 1972. It was just the second game of tailback Archie Griffin's freshman year, and he ran for a school record 239 yards. Below is the article that ran in the Journal on Sunday, October 1, 1972.
