The Greatest Football Game Ever Played

"I'm not kidding, this is the greatest football game ever played. The pre-game hype had Miami favored by as much as 21 points. From the first series for both teams you can see the fire in there eyes. This is four quarters of pure football like you've never seen before, plus two bonus overtimes. Watch as "The Ohio State Buckeyes" are held on almost every series, keeping Miami in the game. Watch as they overcome cheating, the referees, even the announcers, and "Shock the world". This game comes down to one thing and one thing only... Both teams get the ball on the two yard line, but only one team takes the pig skin to the promise land. Did you know that they were serving buckeye soup on the planes full of Miami fans. Do you know what a buckeye is?"

"About a month prior to the game all I could remember was if Miami would beat Ohio State by more than they had defeated Nebraska in the previous Championship game. Allthe hype was Miami, Miami, Miami, 34 game winning streak and the only reason Ohio Stae was even playing Miami is that they were also undefeated and that they were barely getting by the opposition.
True they had some close games they could have lost but those are the games you have to win to get to the big dance. The night of the game I was hoping, praying that somehow,someway Ohio State could keep it close,competitive make it a good game.
I was not aware along with about most everyone else that I was about to witness one of the best games to have ever been played. Both teams started real strong on defense Both teams trademarks. Miami finally found a hole in Ohio States defense and scored a touchdown and it looked like de ja vue from a year ago, but wait this isint Nebraska from a year ago this is Ohio State give them a chance. They must have heard because other teams would have folded but not these guys.And while Ohio State had not fount a groove in their offense yet their defense was playing their guts out. Late in the first half Ohio State made a huge interception and on a gutsy forth and one call tied the game. A couple of plays later their defense came through again on a fumble and Clarett ended up scoring easily giving Ohio States offence a much needed boost.
With eleven minutes to go in the third quarter Krenzel hit gamble for a big gain to the Miami five but a play later he was intercepted but Clarett with a great mind presence stole the ball from Taylor and ended up with a field goal giving them a ten point lead.
You knew Miami was going to come back and tie it you just knew it. Theres no way Miami was going to go down like that. Sure enough Miami tied it and it was off to overtime.
During the first overtime Miami scored pretty easily and it looked liked thier defense was fatiuged (do you blame them) from a long nights work. Ohio States turn in overtime didin't look so promising. After a penalty and an incompletion it was fourth and fourteen and all looked lost but with good protection Krenzel steps up and hits Jenkins for a big first down. Several plays later Krenzel throws on fourth and three to Gamble but he misses and all the Miami players were celebrating but as soon as they start to do so a penalty flag was thrown for pass inteference and while many people still cry about this call to this day I look at it this way,Miami had Ohio State down to fourth and fourteen and could not hold them thats what everyone routing for Miami should be crying about. During the second overtime Ohio State lookes a bit refreshed and scores. Ohio State gets to Dorsey but Miami still gets to the two yard line first and goal.
This is where you find out how champions are made.Ohio State puts up one of the best goal line stances that I've ever seen and finally after 34 years they are National Champions beating the Invincible Miami Hurricanes proving that anything can happen as long as you believe in yousself and have faith in your teammates.
"The" Ohio State Buckeyes make Winslow and the small Miami c

"In the greatest college football game ever played, Ohio State made the plays at the right time to beat the "unbeatable" Miami Hurricanes in multiple overtime periods. This dvd is complete and without commercial interruption.
Some things to keep in mind as you watch the game. How bad has Keith Jackson's announcing skills faded? Heres a few quotes from oh nelly. Theres Craig Kressler the quarterback. He has all of those stars on his helmet. Umm yeah.... Those are Buckeye leaves and his name is Krenzel not Kressler. What a drunk! Keith, buddy you have done about 30 Ohio State games in your career you should know that the logo is not a star, they aren't the Cowboys. Then you have his partner in Miami homer-ism Dan Fouts, whose former team mate Kellen Winslow happens to have his son on the field for Miami. Listen and make it a drinking game for all the times his views lean to the Miami side. Even stating ardently that the pass interference call at the end was horrible, when you can buy a poster of it online showing Chris Gamble being held while the ABC camera guy in full view is still showing Krenzel in post passing mode , while the ball is on its way to a tangled up Gamble.
This game has it all, including a swarming Buckeye defense and a very fast Hurricane defense as well. You can also try to find all the players who later were drafted into the NFL, maybe the most ever for a national title game. Ohio State alone had 15 players drafted in one season following the game- an NFL record. Watch Willis Mcgahee's leg flop around like a slinky after Will Allen ends his college career late in the 3rd period, a not for the faint of heart Theisman-like injury!
Another fine viewing tip, don't adjust your tv screen. The stadium is 95% Ohio State fans for a national championship game. Both teams are basically the same distance away from the game site- Arizona. It looked like a home game in the Shoe! And people that were at the game have said that thousands more were outside the stadium."
