Shots from the Shoe – Penn State

I’m not going to wax philosophic after that Penn State game.  Being in the stadium for Dr. Wood’s last home game was wonderful – particularly getting a chance to shake his hand and thank him for everything after the game.  The game, though, left a lot to be desired. The Buckeye fans were wonderful during […]
