  • SPORTS MOMENT: Even though it is technically vacated, attending the 2011 Sugar Bowl to watch the Buckeyes beat Arkansas. It's one thing to be among thousands of Buckeye fans in Columbus, but it's a whole different experience to travel far away from the Shoe and be part of the 'migration' of Buckeyes, especially when we win!

Great article....I miss my time in Columbus! Maybe one day I will live there again. The city is certainly transforming and growing every day. I was amazed by all of the construction, and other things, taking place the last time I visited. I'll be back this weekend for a wedding and can't wait!

South Carolina is pretty bad too. I lived in Charleston for two years and there's a lot of state pride combined with animosity towards transplants, especially Ohioans. 

There are a lot of cars that have palmetto stickers with taglines like "Native" or "Carolina Girl." And at one point they had a "Go Back to Ohio" campaign. Needless to say, I moved back to Ohio (for a job) and I'm actually glad to be back.

I would also echo many of the other comments already made. I would also recommend going to the VT game because the atmosphere of a night game in the Shoe is like nothing else. It will also be warm which is always an added bonus in my opinion. Since I graduated a few years back I've tried to make it to at least one game a year and most years I choose a night game. As mentioned before it also gives you plenty of time to experience all of the pre-game activities happening around campus. Of course watching our Buckeyes beat TTUN is always special too, but I think a night game early in the season will make for an energized crowd and electric atmosphere. Tailgating around the Shoe and seeing the Skull Session are always great things to do especially for your first game. 

I also agree that the first row of the B deck or C deck along one of the sidelines would probably offer the best viewing experience. If you sit to low it can be difficult to see what's happening near the end zones. 

And of course make sure to stop by Buckeye Donuts while you're there!

Hahaha, I look forward to reading Ramzy's articles each week....you can always count on them for a good laugh or two!

I remain optimistic about this team and the defense's ability to correct its mistakes sooner rather than later. There is plenty of athleticism and potential, and I believe the coaching staff would get things in order, especially with a bye week. 

It's nice to see the optimism....it's a nice change from all the pessimistic posts and headlines from both Buckeye fans and 'outsiders'.  

Comment 03 Oct 2013

I agree, it's a little presumptuous to call this our only remaining challenge. But with the PSU game being in Columbus under the lights, I see it less challenging than if it were an away game. Also I think after the IU and TTUN games we'll have a better idea of how tough PSU will be because IMO their schedule hasn't been too challenging yet. And when they did play a 'better' team, in UCF, they lost.

Comment 01 Oct 2013

Agreed. I'm not surprised at all with that stat considering Coach Meyer's earlier comments of playing conservative 'victory mode.' A little contradictory with his messaging of the teams 4th quarter play. 

Maybe we'll see a little different look this week in the 4th quarter, hard to tell.

Comment 24 Sep 2013

This year we have a lot more options on offense, with more speed. I think Wisky will have a tough time with the likes of Miller, Hall, Wilson, etc. on the field at the same time. They may have been able to contain Miller last year, but containing all of those guys will be a tough task. 

If we can do a good job of stopping the run and eliminate big plays this will force Wisky to throw the ball and then we'll be in good shape.

I agree. I'll be celebrating a birthday in Columbus for the weekend. Now I don't have any games other than the Buckeyes to worry about. More time to focus on going out haha.
