What's the minimum temperature you would bear to watch an entire college football playoff game at the 'Shoe?

Unless you are a geriatric, there is no excuse for any of you voting for any of the top 3 options.  Its an effing playoff game in the shoe... sack up.

Time and change will surely show how firm they friendship... O-HI-O.

How are 50% of the responders to this question that big of a p***y? I'm actually shocked.

You're right, Acrossthefield.
On second thought, seriously, I would freeze my nuts off to watch Ohio State play anybody in a playoff game in The Shoe! Especially a TFDS(Team From Down South).

The coldest football game I ever attended was the 2005 Bears\Falcons tilt. I don't know where it ranks on the all time NFL list, but it was easily the coldest game I've ever been to. We tailgated before the game and made chili, among other things-it was so cold that one of our plastic ladles fell off a 3 foot poker table and cracked into 6 pieces. The beer couldn't be drank fast enough before a layer of frost had to be pulled off. But it was the Bears, the return of Rex (at the time we liked him) and it was another matchup in the great, budding Urlacher\Vick rivalry. I'm a firm believer that no one in any NFL city likes playing in cold weather but it was obvious Atlanta didn't want to be there. I wouldn't have missed that game for the world-I wouldn't miss a Buckeye game for the world either.
With that said I've been pretty blessed at OSU games. I've been to more unseasonably warm than cold matchups. 2002 Texas Tech felt like it was 150 degrees in the stands.

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would be more obvious.

As a Browns fan <insert joke here>, I've tailgated for plenty of negative temperature games with the wind whipping off the lake.  You know its cold when you have to keep your beer on the grill to keep it from freezing solid. 
On the flip side, that game this past year in the she against Akron was miserable.  I'd take the subzero temperatures any day. 

Time and change will surely show how firm they friendship... O-HI-O.

Oh, I skimmed over the word "playoff", that changes my vote.

We should strive to keep thy name, of fair repute and spotless fame...

(Also, I'm not a dude)

Acrossthefield said it best.  Maybe it would keep the "sit down, I cant see" crowd from attending.  Just pound a couple shots of Crown beforehand and you're fine. 

I never saw a football player make a tackle with a smile on his face

If I can freeze my butt off watching the Bengals get waxed by the Saints i will gladly accept frostbite and illness for a playoff game at The Shoe.

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

Ahh Saturday's picture

Red Right 88 was my first football game.  It was 2* at kickoff.

I attended a Jaguars-Bengals game when it was 10 degrees with a -15 windchill. Watched the Bengals get their third and final win of that dreaded 3-13 season. If the Bucks were in the playoffs, I'd be there in the stands until it was so cold that the referees cancel the game. If Urban Meyer and our boys are out there, then there's no reason we can't be either.

i'd be out there regardless of temperature until the game had been completely decided. until we (its not even reasonable to think the other team would win in this situation) had the game locked up, i would be there, bundled up, taking generous shots from a flask, trying to reconcile the insanity that everyone in the stadium is going through

Come play with us SEC. Forever, and ever, and ever...

oh the smell of victory

When I was in the marching band at Montana State, we played at a lot of games that were 5-10 degrees before the windchill (pretty howling wind up there too). There were times we would mix everclear with our slide/valve oil to prevent our instruments from freezing. We were completely sober, but I'm sure people thought we weren't because of the smell. (We were also accused on at least two separate occasions by completely different groups of students of having somehow concealed a keg in a tuba.)

Those games were awesome. Make the southern teams earn homefield if they really want it. Otherwise they should have to come to where it's cold.

Go Bucks!
