  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2011 OSU - Wisconsin game. It was my freshman year, I was sitting in C deck between the towers on the north side of the Shoe. Braxton scrambled and threw an incredible 40 yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds left in the game to give the Buckeyes a 4 point lead. I stormed down to the field and managed to get to the endzone in time to sing Carmen. In an otherwise disappointing season, it was an incredible moment.

I'm an Indians fan, my roommate is a Reds fan and he loves to mock me for Mr. "Bro-hio".  I don't care. I love the guy's attitude.  I'm a little concerned with his performance, but I can't help but like him.

That picture is from the 2011 Wisconsin game.  And what a game it was!

Comment 06 Jun 2014

I completely agree.  I think if they were to expand to 8 teams the first round would need to be hosted by the higher ranked team in the match up.  I also love that every single game matters.  It's what makes college football unique and is one of the things I love most about the sport.

I love that site! I think it's great that the mentally challenged are given internet access.

The problem is not that they are using "real" players it is that they are using their likeness. The rosters that have accurate names are made up by third parties and available for download.  EA never published a game with the players names included, instead they would create players with similar attributes such as height, weight, athletic ability at each position, often skin color, playing styles, and the correct number on jerseys.  In NCAA Football 14, the quarterback for OSU (known as QB #5) is 6'2", 220 pounds, black, and classified as a scrambler.  The real Braxton Miller is 6'2", 216 pounds, black, and classified as "Dual Threat" by scout.com.  When playing the dynasty mode, you are right that it is completely fictionalized after 4-5 seasons, but the every time you play online you play with the rosters that the game starts with.  If you want a game that accurately represents college football every year, it means that they have to use current players and stats to base the in-game characters off of.  If they were to continue to make the game with completely made up characters (to avoid another law suit in the future) rankings and talent would not be accurate for multiplayer or online play.  I would be fine with that though! I play the dynasty and road to glory modes WAY more than online.  I want another game, but I don't think we will get one until the system changes.

Does anyone know what is happening with the Skull Session now that they are going to tear down St. John's? The new Covelli Arena will only seat 4,000 people.  St. John's seats over 13,000 and is almost always at capacity for Skull Sessions.

I really like that thought.  As far as the local school/MAC team, I would love to try and keep it in Ohio.  BGSU, Toledo, Kent, Akron, OU, Cincinnati, something like that.  The difficulty with the first part is that year to year it may be hard to schedule two OOC Top 25 opponents without going after the usual suspects that we can predict (Alabama, Oklahoma, etc.).  Cal was bad when we scheduled them in 2002 for the 2012-13 home and home, then they were pretty good, then they sucked by the time we played them.  We are scheduled to play Oregon in 2020 and 2021 and Texas in 2022-2023.  Who knows how good they will be that far from now.

Comment 15 May 2014

Exactly. I was at that game and on top of high winds, it kept changing directions as it whipped through and around the stadium. Braxton went 13 of 29 for 150 yards. He really shouldn't have had that many opportunities to throw.  With the weather I'm surprised it wasn't more like 18 or 20 attempts with more play to Hyde (24 carries, 246 yards, 4TDs) or Wilson (1 carry, 7 yards, 0 TDs).  He did have a lot of bad throws that game but the wind certainly didn't help.

Comment 02 May 2014

Agreed.  I'd rather see him stay healthy.  Ideally I'd like to see him finish the season with no more than 700-800 yards rushing and around 3500 yards in the air.  I think it would be best for the team and best for Braxton if he wants a serious shot at a career as a QB in the NFL.  In fourteen games (although I hope we play 15) that comes out to 50-60 yards rushing and 250 passing each.

I didn't mean it negatively.  I love BG.  I'm from the area originally, I have a ton of friends that are either enrolled at or graduated from BG. I make sure to get to Pollyeyes whenever I'm in town.  Gotta love the Doyt!

I can honestly say that the 2006 Spring Game is what made me (then in 7th grade) want to go to Ohio State.  Before my freshman year at OSU, it was the only time I had ever been in Ohio Stadium.  If ticket prices were $20 then, I would probably be a BGSU Falcon.

Comment 15 Apr 2014

Student tickets normally go on sale around the end of May or start of June, because it is by class rank the window to order varies.

EDIT: You should receive an email from the athletic department with all of the info within the next few weeks (assuming you are a current student that will be enrolled in the fall).

Comment 15 Apr 2014

I don't mind Fox, but I really want the MSU game to be primetime.  I expect that MSU will be the hardest game on the schedule and I think that deserves an 8:00 game.  The argument can be made that MSU has been one of our best rivals (not that I consider MSU a rivalry) in the last few years.  We are 3-2 against MSU in the last 5 meetings and in that time we have only won by more than one score once (2008, 45-7).  In 2011 OSU lost 7-10, in 2012 the Bucks won 17-16, and of course we need to make up for the B1G Championship last season.  It should be a great game, especially in East Lansing.

Comment 25 Mar 2014

While I agree with the sentiment, I think it was a poor choice of words.  Of course Urban doesn't need a raise.  Especially considering that he has yet to win a B1G championship or bowl game with OSU.  However saying that back to back 12 win seasons isn't an elite performance is just belittling the teams that earned those wins.  Again, I agree that Urban's contract doesn't need to be reworked yet.  I understand that having no conference championship or bowl win stings, but I have a hard time saying a 24-2 record since being at OSU isn't elite.
