That last photo of all the students in the Block O formation singing Carmen Ohio is incredible.

Seeing these photos makes it very clear that football is almost here!

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

Great photos; but I have to wonder if he has caught his breath yet?  Appears he was running around C desk like a gazelle.

wish I could go back in time and start my undergrad all over again...what a time it was.

Awesome event. The only regret I have in life thus far is not attending tOSU... 

What we can't do in the air we'll do on the ground.

That's my baby girl in the Block O picture...bottom of the "O"..right on the 50 yard line.  She had a perfect 4.0 in high school, 2060 SATs and is a National Buckeye (her father and brother were/are Nittany Lions).  She figured if PSU would accept her brother, it wasn't "elite" enough for her.  Enjoy Ohio State, Casey..you earned it!!!!

This is Buckeye70...Glad you all enjoyed my pics.
The event was supposedly just for students, but I acted like I knew what I was doing, and walked right in. Unfortunately, I didn't try getting up to C-Deck or into the South Stands, but I think I got a few pretty decent shots.

You got some excellent shots and a lot of exercise!

Very cool.  I wish my class would have had the opportunity to do that.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

Excellent work! Interesting to see how "littered" A and C deck are with season ticket holder seat backs. I guess that's why OSU can charge whatever they wish.

Did they take the pillar caps off the scoreboard? 

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

I heard one fell off after a storm earlier this year.
No evidence of that--or any other pillars.
