Wrong name?[edit]

I'm pretty sure the team is proudly called "The Ohio State Buckeyes". They make a big deal about the "The" and you notice player and couches strongly imphasising the "The" when they say it. RobertGary1 (talk) 19:21, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

According to the schools webpage the "The" is actually part of the legislation that created the school. https://library.osu.edu/find/collections/the-ohio-state-university-archives/digitalcontent/faqs#1 RobertGary1 (talk) 19:25, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

Matt Henrey[edit]

You have that Matt Henrey has the longest interception returned for a touchdown (102 yards in 1990 vs Iowa). First, I believe that no yards in the endzone count as official yards. Whether the touchdown is on the goal line or 9 yards deep, if it goes for a touchdown it is only 100 yards. Second, no one returned an interception for a touchdown against Iowa. http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/schools/ohio-state/1990-roster.html Third, according to my "Official Ohio State Football Encyclopedia" (published following the 2002 season), no one named Henrey ever lettered at Ohio State. I thought that it might be a typo and maybe his name is really "Henry" - only one "Henry" received a letter, and that was in 1949. Finally, in the same book, it lists interception records of 100 yards by David Brown and Marlon Kerner. (I believe that in 2003 Will Allen also accomplished that.) No Matt Henrey is listed in the top 5.

I think Matt Henrey should be removed from that page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.100.162.36 (talk) 17:07, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Nice catch. Looks like that was inserted in 2011 and somehow managed to survive this entire time. JohnInDC (talk) 20:06, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

1986 and 1998[edit]

These games were played at the end of the regular season as well. The article indicates they were not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 38.67.192.98 (talk) 22:01, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Both years Michigan played Hawaii in a regular season game following Ohio State - see 1986_Michigan_Wolverines_football_team and 1998_Michigan_Wolverines_football_team. JohnInDC (talk) 00:47, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Amusingly I responded to this question (citing a Michigan article at the OSU page!) without realizing that it should have been asked at Michigan–Ohio State football rivalry‎, where the answer is 1) still the same and 2) makes a good bit more sense. JohnInDC (talk) 02:08, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Co-champions 2015 2016[edit]

The Big 10 recognizes co-champions. The tiebreakers decide who goes to what bowl game. Here's a Big 10 press release specifically noting that OSU had won a share of the East Division title in 2016, at least a share for the 5th year running. http://www.bigten.org/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/112616aaa.html . Please stop removing this info. Thanks. JohnInDC (talk) 23:13, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
