Strange second half for Ohio State in the Rose Bowl.

Only gained 15 yards in the fourth quarter after putting up 272 yards in the first half.

Haven't seen a team cover both halfs of a Rose Bowl very often in my life.

If he is any good it would be a first...Ohio State isn't exactly Quarterback U.

Remember Art Schlichter?

I grew up with the player who served as Schlichter's back-up, Mike Tomczak.

A Polish kid from Calumet City, Illinois.

Tomczak played about 15 seasons in the NFL and started his career 10-0 with the Bears.

How about ole Art as a guest if/when the EOG podcast returns?

Doubt he can make media appearances from federal prison.

He's halfway through an 11-year sentence for fraud and forgery.

Not good.

Schlichter is now 57 years old.

I remember when Art came to Las Vegas.

He hosted a sports talk show on KVEG and he would ask listeners to "light up the phones" after barking out the phone number as if he were still under center at Ohio State.

He started slow with the area code (702), then sped up with the prefix (262) and ended with the final four numbers in two parts (58) followed by a quarterback's pause and then punched the final part (34).

Funny guy but sick as it gets.

Sclichter was far more talented than Tomczak.

Not saying the NFL Draft is the end-all be-all, but Schlichter was the fourth overall pick in the 1982 draft while Tomczak went undrafted in 1985.

It is kind of amazing how much talent an elite program accumulates. Just because Tua is better does not mean Jalen Hurts is chopped liver, etc. I did get to see Schichter play the Gophers once at the old stadium. Not sure the 3 yards and a cloud of dust tactics fully prepared him for the pros? But, on the subject - how much blame falls on the locals who preyed on Schichter’s addiction? Maybe, someone here has read Busted?
