An O-H-I-O Tradition

Among my grandfather E.D. Naylor's belongings was a ticket for the 29th edition of "The Game" between Ohio State and Michigan.  I presume he was there.

Today, the 111th edition is played at Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeyes lost that day in 1932, 0-14 to a Michigan team that included Gerald Ford, the future U.S. President.  It was also a Michigan team that would be declared National Champions too.  That's a pretty memorable game to be at, despite the outcome.

His seat in Sec 11A would be pretty good today too.  Inflation has eaten away at the price, though.  The closest seat his $3 ticket goes for today on StubHub is $244.

Go Bucks!
