While I agree, haven't we lost our last two trips to Ross Ade?

Doesn't matter if they've beaten the Bucks a handful of times, since 2005 they are 41-48 having a max win total of 8 games, twice. That won't sell out your stadium.

A very good friend of mine was a member of Ohio's Marching 110 back in the early 80s. His freshman year, another friend and I went down to visit him for the weekend. We went to the game (which had about 10K in the stands) and left after the halftime show. As we were leaving, a small group of students polled us as to why we were not staying for the rest of the game.

"Why are you leaving?"

"We just came to see the band," I answered.

"What can we do to make more people stay for the entire game?"

"Win more games," I replied.

The girl asking the questions smiled. "Besides that, what else can we do?"

"Lock the gates," I said as the two of us walked away.

Besides winning????  Come on, this is Ohio, not Indiana! We will sit through snowstorms and burning September heat if the team is a winner.

To err is human. Really sucking requires having yellow stripes on your helmet.

Are these the fools that added the T-shirt cannon nonsense to Buckeye games?  "Look out, Brutus is on the loose!"  *Huge sigh*  Having an Integrys Energy T shirt shot at me does not improve gameday.

I feel like this consulting group will recommend various gimmicks, "proving" their worth by listing other schools with good attendence that use them.  Correlation is not causation.
