With triple-option expert Rex Kern, future NFL Hall of Fame defensive back Jack Tatum and a host of other weapons on both sides of the ball, Ohio State marched into Michigan Stadium on Nov. 22, 1969, expecting to coast to victory against No. 12 Michigan.

Buckeyes coach Woody Hayes led a team that was not only unbeaten, but had yet to trail that season. The Buckeyes’ biggest “scare” — a 27-point victory over Minnesota — was hardly even a whimper.

Alexandra Ngo, who graduated in 2018, sat with Michael Sola in the Michigan Union Billiards Room, where Ngo worked, watching Vine compilations one night in Spring 2017.

Sly Fernandez de Castro came to the bar by himself — standing out among groups of American college students who had come to the Phoenix Pub for a taste of home and discounted “cerveza” in the Los Remedios area of Sevilla. He was an American soldier from downtown Philadelphia, based in the Morón Air Base in Sevilla, Spain.

De Castro was an Eagles fan, looking for a place with big screen TVs, good beer and a vibrant atmosphere.

Public Policy junior Daniel Greene remembers one of the first fraternity rush events he attended as a freshman.

“I walk into the house, and the first thing I hear, is ‘that’s so gay,’” Greene said. “Some brother is repeating ‘that’s so gay.’ That’s literally the first thing after I checked in I heard.”

“So I thought, ‘OK, maybe not the house for me,’” he recalled.
