I think the attendance may have to do with baseball in general. I've always been an Indians fan, and I played baseball in high school but I've always found that it is a fairly boring sport to watch. Baseball has largely become a pitching battle after the steroid era, so offensive explosions are rare (and more so with the Indians the last few years). I do enjoy going to a game now and again, but more for the ballpark experience and nostalgia than the actual game. Plus with, what, 82 home games/year x 40,000 seats approximately to fill, that's a lot of tickets, enthusiasm, and money from a Cleveland fan base that has grown weary with continual disappointment. It also doesn't help being a small market team (with small market front office expenditures in payroll).

The only thing that matters on these tickets is the opponents the Buckeyes play. Until we play the best opponents we can schedule (no matter what Gene's scheduling delegate thinks is or isn't a good idea, thinking Wisconsin and Penn State preclude us from picking up quality non-conference opponents), the tickets are overpriced.

This kind of scheduling is exactly why I stopped getting season tickets. Army = triple option = unnecessary risk of injury to the team's defense. FAU = who cares = tickets you neither want to use nor can give away (I'm not kidding. When I had an extra ticket, I could always get someone to come and pay. I literally couldn't give the ticket away because people would rather do landscaping work or go hunting that watch that stinker). We were able to get Oregon State to do a one-off home game for us... Surely another power five school (I'm thinking of schools with little to lose and exposure to gain, like a Syracuse, Texas Tech, Kentucky (lol), or Virginia) would at least listen.

Wait a second... I'm really confused. When you said 'we're stupid for supporting our team no matter what,' I thought we are all Buckeye fans? We're not on the list, a bunch of other fan bases are. Notre Dame fans? Usually stupid. Florida fans? Usually delusional, bitter, and a bit stupid. Miami and USC fans? Usually only on the winning bandwagon, default to stupid. I'm more surprised by teams that aren't on this list **cough, cough** Tennessee **cough, cough**. The Buckeyes are awesome, so being a fan of theirs (in good times and bad) is both loyal (smart) and a great way to avoid constant disappointment (also smart).

Still rockin' the #5... But at 5' 6" I can see why the silent offer from USC was likely rescinded. Kid was definitely a baller though.

I saw my first Blue Jackets game in April and it was awesome. Sadly the reason I went dumped me the same weekend. After I bought her a bottle of Four Roses Single Barrel. Some bitches cold...

I'm no expert, but I counted a few recruiting competitors within 200 miles of Ohio's borders... the school up north, their little brother, Notre Dame... I didn't get a map out, but just guessing. That or I suffered a misinterpretation of snark. 

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Concerning the terribleness of the non-conference schedule, I scheduled a trip (Morocco, hopefully doesn't get weird) to coincide with the Hawaii and Northern Illinois games. No chance I wasn't going to watch the Va Tech revenge game live.

I have to second anything Honda... perhaps a 4 cylinder Accord, I have an Acura TL (basically a V6 accord), 123K miles on it and haven't had a single issue excluding replacing a battery after 110K miles. The 4 cylinder gets better mileage and has decent power (my buddy has one and I've ridden in it to a few concerts). 

Comment 25 Jul 2015

Columnist is clearly deluded, thinking a B1G team would jump 9 spots in the polls by beating Hawaii, Northern Illinois, Western Michigan, Indiana, and Maryland. Akin to saying an 8-0 Minnesota team would be ranked #3 nationally.

He does have an 'offer' but it may not be a commitable offer. He's one of my favorite prospects and it drives me crazy a kid could not go to his first choice school because we have so many talented kids lining up, but would hate to lose him if we miss out out the staff's top two of Nate Craig-Myers and Donnie Corley. He definitely is a talent.

Up votes all around! (I give my first up vote to this delicious Hop Nosh IPA, a stunning irony straight from Mormon country).
