It's kind of a family tradition of ours to go see a movie as a family every Christmas evening. What a lineup we have this year. Unbroken looks amazing, but I think we are going to see American Sniper. I can't wait!
I guess I'm just a huge nerd, but the economics of college football, mixed with in depth research of fan bases sizes really intrigues me. So pardon my french, but obviously I fucking care.
My question is, if the B1G is making so much more money per school than any other conference, where is the money going? There is no reason the B1G does not have the nicest stadiums, and best facilities in the country. Minnesota built a brand new stadium, and are in the process of building new facilities. The B1G needs all of the mid teir teams to start putting that money to aide their football programs.
Corey Smith, and Michael Thomas are elite WR's, or at least have elite talent and upside. In my not so educated opinion they need to hit Thomas on ore slants, and Smith on more screens. On Smith's couple catches in the B1G game, you could see how electric and quick he is with the ball in his hands. We can not forget about Heuerman either, he is projected as a top three NFL TE prospect in the country for a reason.
All you, myself, or any other Buckeye fan needs to know is that if Urban Meyer is starting Grant over McMillan, it is because Grant is better than McMillan and gives Ohio State the best chance to win.
Ohio State does have more team speed than Alabama. But what comes with more speed? Being a little smaller, that is what worries me. I have no doubt Ohio State is faster.
"All he can do is stop the run"
Judging from this article, Grant is exactly who we need in there.
That is exactly why Nebraska is a mediocre program now a days. You have Scott Frost who was a star QB there, and you don't go after him?
One last note: I'm not confident with Apple on Cooper as a few of you have mentioned, but I am extremely confident that Apple can hang with, and limit Alabama's #2 WR DeAndrew White, and that may be the key. Cooper is going to get his, but if Ohio State is able to cover Cooper over the top all game with Bell or Powell and not have to worry about White, then it will make limiting Cooper a lot more manageable.
i have watched Alabama (as many of you have) a ton over the past few years. They pound the ball all game long for 5-6 yards a carry, and then kill you with play action. To me, it's simple (not the action of doing it obviously) Ohio State's interior DLine needs to have a big game, and the LB's, DE's need to stay disciplined on the play action roll outs. Go Bucks!
I believe Ohio State pulls it off, but I'm expecting Powell to fall for a couple play actions passes, or get confused and coverage and leave Cooper wide open for a couple of scores.
Out of curiosity, what was the fan split for that game against Arkansas?
Sorry, was on break from work and didn't spell check my post. Didn't think I was going to get judged too harshly for some simple spelling mistakes. I will be sure to double check my work for you, just to ensure you that I'm a good person.
And I do appreciate it, that's why I made the forum to see what Buckeye Nation had to say about if it were a good idea, or too risky.
Appreciate it, sounds very similar to Browns games then.
That is why I'm asking. Wondering if it is worth it. I know you may be thinking "Obviously it isn't worth it" But I've been to 20 something Ohio State and Browns games and never had an issue sneaking in a little flask or something of the sort.
Appreciate the help.
lol no, just looking to save some money.
Saves a lot of money. Doesn't cause anybody any trouble so I don't feel as if it's a big deal.
Like I said, it doesn't both me one bit. I'm an Ohio State football fan, not an Ohio State academics fan. That doesn't mean I would back Jameis Winston if he played for Ohio State, that doesn't mean I think the players should get away with murder. I just don't mind if the business is a little more cut throat than we think it is.
lol there is an NCAA rule against oversigning. I doesn't stop anybody. Hence, the one common theme to all Ohio State's recruiting questions to Birm. "We don't have enough scholarships for all these guys" "If this guy wants to come to Ohio State, Meyer will find a way"
Yes, Urban Meyer has a lot of the same philosophies as certain coaches in the SEC. That includes over signing, it does not bother me one bit though.
