I was in college during the end of the Cooper years with Bellisari at the helm. I was also there in 2002 and 2003 when the team won a National Championship as well as were in the hunt for a second up until the last game of the season. Regardless of the team there weren't any empty seats in any of the games I attended and there sure weren't a shortage of OSU jerseys.
