Ohio Stadium is a Complex Wind Tunnel

NBC4 in Columbus ran a feature involving Drew Basil, who works for the network as a weather intern this summer. It focuses on how difficult Ohio Stadium is for kickers. The wind that you see swirling through C-deck is not the same wind with which kickers have to deal when attempting long field goals. It's an interesting feature that's worth three minutes of your time.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

While everything else around him is getting blown away, his beard stays put. Don't mess with beards...

I'm hoping he just moves on but we all know that won't probably happen;-)

The best question will be how the future seats above the tunnels at the south end of the field will affect wind flow and kicker corrections...

It might affect our 11 kickoffs a game and 10 extra points
not much other uses for kickers at tOSU next year

My thoughts exactly. One would think those seats would make the swirl less on the field, better for kickers. 

I wasn't born a Buckeye but I became one as fast as I could.

I don't know about anyone else, but the first thing I thought of was how Nugent was even more freaking clutch given this information. NUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Video production brought to you by: Your crazy uncle (who happens to be a Red Coat at the stadium), his neighbor (also a Red Coat), and the guy from Cord Camera.

That was terrible to listen to with ear buds.

I ignored your warning and oh my god yes. (Great piece though from Ganahl)

Tried to listen here and on NBC4's website. The audio on the video cuts out a couple of times.
Interesting stuff.
