There may be no state pride in Illinois but Chicagoans love their city. I've seen more Chicago flag tattoos living here than any Ohio related ones during the first 22 years of my life spent in the Buckeye state.
2/3 of this year's night games in the 'shoe are lousy.
In 2012-13, the Flyers' average attendance was 12,438 (26th in Division I). UD Arena holds 13,435 = 92.5% full.
In 2011–12, Ohio State averaged 16,511 (8th in Division I). Value City holds 18,809 = 87.7% full.
UD has been in the top 30 for attendance the past 17 years straight and out of the top 35 only once since 1969, the year UD Arena was opened. Flyer fans are hardly bandwagon and will continue to support their mediocre teams in the future. If you haven't seen a game at UD Arena, you should check it out. I'd argue it's better than the Schott.
Even the announcers know that an empty backfield means a Miller run. Why don't we hand the ball to our 240lb running back on 3rd and 3?
Coombs on the sideline in only a polo shirt. He's got the juice.
I hate these announcers
Four man rush results in a QB sack. Pathetic.
This is the same Iowa team that last week only squeaked out 23yds rushing and 264 total yds and 13 first downs against MSU. They have matched that in the first half against our Swiss cheese defense.
Looked like he led with his shoulder
I was at the game tonight and it seemed like he did whatever he wanted. Most kicks were end over end with backspin. His last punt was a spiral and pinned them inside the ten on their last drive. That kid puts it wherever he wants it. Player of the game IMO. I'm looking forward to seeing him really uncork one, if that opportunity ever comes.
He's definitely our biggest qb
Kenny makes near perfect decisions on the option
Pumped for Kenny G. Shazier will be gone after this year. Hoping Brax sticks around to be a 2x captain.
I had always wondered myself so I looked and finally found it. It's from an Australian morning show. The male anchor, Karl Stefanovic, is pretty funny and says lots of borderline inappropriate things on air. He's like a real life Ron Burgandy - including being still drunk from a night of partying in a few of the videos. I just
wasted enjoyed half an hour of youtube clips. The one that the gif is lifted from isn't nearly as funny as most of the other stuff, but here's the link. It's all the way at the end of the video:
Devin Smith on a bomb, first play of the game.
That creep can roll, man.
Paul Newman is from Ohio. Thought it might've been him.
I voted 'other'. AJ McCarron's girlfriend.
I couldn't care less about what he does in the off season either. Clearly, the responsible thing to do would be to stay clean and work on improving his game (the Mannings might be able to help him with that...). But frankly, if he performs well this season no one will remember all this nonsense. If he doesn't, it'll be talked about in the media ad nauseum. It's his life. If he wants to make bad decisions and jeopardize millions of dollars, so be it.
Nice one. I actually did live near there a few years ago - in Uptown, just south of Montrose. Check out the Bar on Buena if you're ever in the neighborhood.
Gaslight is my favorite of all the ones I've been too. Never been to O'Donovan's but I've driven by it plenty. The patio looks great, aside from being situated right on busy Irving Park. If you think McGee's is undergrad-ish, don't ever consider going to Mickey's on Clark in LP. Another negative of Mickey's is close proximity to Duffy's, probably the worst bar in Chicago (TTUN pissing hole).
I'm closer to Sheffield and Addison. I've been to Vaughn's a couple times but never for a game. Maybe I'll check it out this season, although I'm planning on attending at least three games (including this one against NU). There are a ridiculous number of Buckeye bars in Chicago - you could easily go to a different one for every game.
I'm in Lakeview too, Lakeview East.
