There are a lot of good points on here about who gets to buy the tickets and who gets priced out and I don't dispute any of them. As a fan, I hate the high ticket prices as much as everyone else, but I'm sure the University looks at this totally from a supply & demand perspective. Ticket prices will continue to rise until the point that folks stop buying them. With a fan base as large as TOSU's that may never happen therefore ticket prices will continue to balloon. Since it's a solid 9 hour drive to Columbus from my home it doesn't really impact me, but even if I was within a reasonable driving distance I would still rather watch from home for all of the reasons that many posters above have stated.
Don't discount the Grizzlies. They had a terrible 1st half but got the score close in the 2nd half only to let the game slip out of control near the end of game 1 against the Thunder. What they did, however, was prove that they can be competitive in that series. If they ultimately lose to the Thunder I think it'll be in 6 or 7 games, but I believe they are capable of winning that series. Probably doesn't matter because San Antonio has been their nemesis.
That reminds me of the quote that goes something like "We didn't inherit the earth from our parents, we borrowed it from our children".
Little League baseball when I was in 4th grade I came to bat with 6th graders occupying all 3 bases. The first pitch from the newly-installed relief pitcher was a chest-high fastball that I promptly crushed to centerfield scoring the 3 guys that were on base. As I reached 3rd the coach was waving me home but I stopped for a 3-run, standup triple. The field we were playing on didn't have an outfield fence and I didn't want my first homerun to be an in-the-parker. Finished the game 4-4 batting.
I pitched the first game my 6th grade year and struck out 14 batters (out of 18 total outs) and was 2-3 batting. Still have the game ball.
First basketball game of my 6th grade year I scored 28 points.
Haven't done jack since then.
I love how the guy in the Votto jersey gives a "me too" middle finger to the Cardinals player.
Congrats, Aaron. Very much deserved!
I like how they originally forgot the 'S' in LOOKS then went back and wrote it in afterwards. Ah, the SEC never fails to amaze.
There's obviously passion for both arguments on this site and it's interesting to sit back and watch it play out. I'm just glad he's not going to OSU because I can do without all of the drama.
That's it, Bleed wins the internet today.
Do you have to have a date to get into FNL?
I'm just hoping that we can get through the spring practices with no more injuries. That plus some big-time hoping that we don't have any off-the-field issues. Would love to go into the fall with everyone healthy and noone in trouble.
Thank you for your service, Mr. Wilkins.
So, combined, our bigs had ZERO points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 fouls? That's a bad line for 1 big, let alone 2. Sure hate to see Craft & Smith go out like this.
Great writeup, Kyle, and welcome aboard.
Please, please, please make it to Memphis so I can see the game in person.
So the Buckeyes are the only northern school in the mix for Richmond? Birm, does that hurt or help our chances landing him?
He is. He's from Jackson, MS.
If Ross has paid any attention to the path that Deshaun Thomas' career has taken he won't be leaving early for the NBA. I'd bet that if Thomas were honest he'd say that it was a big mistake for him to leave after his junior year.
Not a chance.
That sounded like a very defensive answer (no pun intended). Kinda like my sons do when they've done something wrong & I call them on it.
Glad to hear the potential rules change is dead...for now.
I'm much more bummed out about this being Craft's last year than I am with the team's performance this season. I would have loved to see him go out with the Bucks winning the conference outright, the conference tournament and making a deep March Madness run. I wish him the best in all that he does but I also feel like he doesn't need the well-wishes as he does everything to the fullest extent of his abilities. Thanks for everything, Mr. Craft.
So you can't have a favorite player if they haven't yet worn pads in practice yet? I had no idea.
"For me, it's Torrance Gibson or bust."
I'm with you on that one, DJ.
