Celebration At The Shoe For 2002 Champs

Nov 23, 2012

Ohio State plans to honor the 2002 national championship team at this year's Michigan game. 

A couple weeks after Ohio State's double-overtime win over Miami in the title game, the university held a celebration at Ohio Stadium. Despite winds that dropped the temperature below 20 degrees, more than 50,000 fans filled the lower tiers of the stadium to pay tribute to a special team. WCBE was there too and produced this sonic snapshot of the ceremony. You'll hear a number of voices including then Athletics Director Andy Geiger, Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, Jim Tressel and a stirring rendition of Carmen Ohio from Cie Grant.
