Yeah, the only one that makes any sense is 2011, when OSU was between Tressel and Meyer.
I attended both the 2011 and 2012 games and the strange part to me is that Ohio State absolutely should have won in 2011 and Purdue absolutely should have won in 2012 but neither happened.  

2011:
Ohio State was down 20-14 late and scored what should have been the game-winning TD with less than one minute to play.  Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, the XP was no good so the game went to OT tied 20-20.  The Buckeyes got the ball first in OT and promptly lost six yards on a rushing loss and a sack bringing up 3rd and 16 from the 31.  Then the Buckeyes completed a 15 yard pass bringing up 4th and 1 at the 16.  The Buckeyes settled for the FG and Purdue scored a TD to win 26-23.  

2012:
Early in the 4th quarter the Buckeyes were trailing 20-14 (again) and committed an illegal block that resulted in a safety and an eight point, 22-14 deficit.  Ohio State forced a punt and got the ball back with about six minutes remaining and ended up being intercepted with a little under three minutes remaining and still down by eight points.  At that point Ohio Stadium emptied out.  Purdue had the ball and Ohio State was down 22-14 with under three minutes to go and the game looked to be over.  By a series of miracles Ohio State forced a punt, scored a TD, got a 2pt conversion, scored another TD in OT, held PU scoreless on their OT possession, and won 29-22.

OSU is 5-12-1 vs the SEC, btw.  2-11 in bowls.

Of course you recognize that SEC teams have an advantage playing in bowl games that are mostly located in SEC Country.  Play the bowls in Cleveland, Chicago, Minneapolis, etc., and the results might be different.

This millennium started in 1990?
Well yeah, if you think about it. You see, there was no "decade zero" so.... 

JK, I thought that we had switched gears from that to King Berry's record vs OSU. If we are to only zero in on this Millennium, which began in 2000 imo because I'm not actually one of those "there was no year zero!" guys, his record was 3-2 vs OSU. So that's pretty good.

Also Braxton Miller got knocked out of the game.

Smooth Jazz was brought in off of the bench in the first meaningful minutes of his career, and saved the day via miraculous comeback.

Yeah, and ticket sales would suffer.

The Big Ten can't have it both ways - waxing poetic about the Rose Bowl and how pious it be, then bitch about having to play bowls in FL.  There's a reason. It's out of our hands.  Bitching about the infrastructure and traditions while worshiping other traditions is called hypocrisy. 

And anyway, Glendale is like 150 miles closer to Columbus than it is to Gainesville!!! :57:

The tie was against Auburn in some sort of a post season game, back before they were referred to as "bowl games" (1917).

I can remember back in the day that making one of the Big Four Bowls was a sign you'd had a very good year - Cotton, Orange, Sugar, Rose.  Your team was 10-1 or 11-0.  Your team now played a very good to elite member of another conference (usually).  I always figured "we" would blow them out because we were 10-1 and that one was a fluke loss.

The Gator Bowl was a kind of consolation prize, but still a decent bowl, and everything else meant you had a mediocre season at best, Independence, Tangerine, Peach, whatever.   Your team made a bowl game but not because they were particularly good, usually, except that Nebraska team that fell to the Sun Bowl and blasted the Dawgs into smithereens.

That could happen, a national contender team could fall way way down just because ....  some late loss usually.  The Huskers were not happy about it.  I forget who knocked them down ...

1969?

I am getting old.  I am thankful I still feel pretty good.  I can tell you younger folks that staying in decent shape when you are 48 is a worthy cause.  Do something for yourself, it gets much harder 20 years later.  And that Shingrix vaccine knocked me back for two days.

I don't think that "the Big Ten" is either waxing poetic or bitching about bowl games in Florida.  But the reality is that SEC teams usually get to play bowl games pretty close to home in weather that is very comfortable to them.  And Big Ten teams usually get to play in bowl games far from home in weather that is a lot warmer than what the weather back home is like.
Imagine that Florida had an annual game with Alabama and it was always played in Birmingham.
Better still, imagine that Florida had an annual game with Wisconsin and it was always played in Milwaukee.

The idea that ticket sales would suffer is silly. If you put Ohio State and Alabama in Soldier Field on January 1, the game would sell out within minutes - mostly to OSU fans.

Does Fro know that Oklahoma isn't in the Big Ten? Or the North, for that matter?

They are north of me, and in the Big something conference, I can't keep them straight anyway.

I don't think playing in the south is a particular advantage for southern teams.  The lesser bowls don't sell out, the crowd noise is generally pretty tame, and playing in better weather is better.  I bet Ohio State would rather play in Orlando than Chicago.
