I was an usher at the Shoe from 1997 to 2009. When I retired I moved to Allen, Texas (5A football state champs the last two years in a row - ask D. Wilson, M. Mitchell and the future soon to be one of the best linemen to put on tOSU uniform, Mr. Knox about Allen, Texas football). Love the Buckeyes and follow them throughout the year. Shout out to all my friends in section 23A - 25A Radar is alive and well.

I did not get to see the FDU game till last night and I was very disappointed. Ohio State as a team had a triple/double.  Haven't seen a box score, so just saying.  They were double digits in turn overs, missed free throws, and taking bad shots.  I hope they get going soon or it's going to be too late.

Rows can vary.  As an usher for a number of years I've learned that seating numbers are just plain dumb.  The sections are numbered from looking at the curve of the horseshoe.  Facing the curve, sections 1&3 are on the left.  Sections 2&4 are on the right. So the odd sections are on the left and even sections on the right. This is only further confused by the signs on each level that have a hyphen between the section numbers, like section 21A - 23A. So first timers wanting to sit in Section 22A will find that their seats are on the other side of the field. The seats are numbered by (my term) the "Chinese numbering system".  Seats on the left, or odd sections,  are numbered from right to left.  Example going from the aisle,  going to seats 3-4 you go past 20-19-18 etc.....4 then 3. The even Sections are numbered left to right.  1,2,3,4.........

So if you're confused well we all are, but the important thing you got a ticket to the HOUSE.  The stories I have! The best advice don't show up shit faced to 21A-23A wanting the shortest route to 22A and deciding it's faster to just cross the field.  The cops hate being interrupted from watching the game to arrest you.      GO BUCKS!

I believe that time of procession is hurting us. We need to increase the tempo. Take the short game they will give us and cut down their time to adjust their defense.  Have the damn plays ready to call.

Most of the comments are good and they will be addressed.  The big thing not mentioned, or I didn't see it was the noise. We did not have our  usually quick first step because we were a half second late off the ball.
