I'm surprised the Rutgers game isn't in prime time. Not that I care about Rutgers, but I thought the whole point of having that shit sandwich join the B1G was to get NYC cable and satellite viewers onto the BTN. It seems to me the first away game in Rutgers B1G history, playing at Ohio State would be the ideal time and place for a 8:00 prime time game.

The spring game was free for the longest time when Ohio State one year charged $5 with the proceeds going to WOSU to buy some new equipment. You just knew it was coming to this. Ohio State is the only team I follow, but no one knows how to squeeze every nickel out of you better than TOSU.

Looking at this list it just goes to show that in college football, there really is a defined group of truly elite coaches because no one is even close to Urban on that list.

You have to somewhat feel for Kansas fans. Weis was introduced to the Jayhawk fans at a sold out basketball game a couple of years ago. The announcer got the crowd all revved up and the place was going wild waiting to see their new coach, when out comes hobbling, grossly overweight Weis having to use a cane just to make it to center court.

There's an age distinction as well. If you are in your twenties or younger, my feelings are go for it. You're only young once so go ahead and wear the crazy outfits and face paint. More power to you. When you get into your 30's and 40's, I'm sorry, it's just time to give up the paint and kooky clothes. If your in your 50's, with rare exception, it becomes embarrassing.

There is a point to be made as well about the three super whatever's we are talking about. These three separate themselves from the rest of the crowd by their never ending self promotion. I don't go to the games anymore due to distance, but I'm sure there are a lot of fans that get dressed up for each game, but I never see them on TV and I certainly don't see them every fricken week like we do these three clowns.

Cheering for the Ruskies in hockey if the Americans don't make it. Four players from the CBJ on their team.

If you go to Ohiostatebuckeyes.com and click on the box score for whatever game your interested in, it will show the attendance number there.

Isn't the fact Ohio State is talking to a QB that clearly doesn't possess the skill set Urban likes indicative of the lack of confidence Urban has in his back up QB's. Jones played garbage time minutes in a handful of games, but hasn't demonstrated in any way the ability to lead this team to a National Championship. Barnett and Collier have even less experience than Jones. Wittek may be the best QB out there for transfer so that's why their going after him.

Kentucky went out and hired a named HC in Mark Stoops. The bottom half of the B1G seem to be content with hiring the hot MAC coach, whoever that may be. Nick Saban isn't leaving Alabama to coach Illinois, but the Illini and the rest of these bottom B1G teams need to hire someone you've heard of and with a decent track record of success in order to instill some life in their moribund programs.

I found what Gene Smith said was interesting in today's skull session regarding new facilities and their timetable for completion. The last I heard was Ohio State was going to build a new ice hockey arena with approx. 3,000 seats. This is woefully inadequate since we are averaging 5,500 to 6,000 fans for B1G games. Who would build a new arena half the size of what you're currently drawing attendance wise? Hockey could become the only sport outside of football and men's basketball to not only pay for itself , but make a profit as well if they build the right size arena. Look into this injustice Aubrey and report back to us.

Kyle,

Where did this interview come from? 

 

EDIT: Never mind, I spoke before I clicked

If you remember Mike Nugent had a pretty rough start as a freshman. He went 7 for 14 in 2001. It wasn't until his sophomore year that he started becoming a great kicker. I wouldn't be shocked to see Nuemberger struggle as well when you consider he'll be kicking in some of the biggest stadiums in the country under much more pressure. I think his real talent will start to show through beginning in year 2.

I'm not convinced this is a good choice. I think we should have got a better, more seasoned, more qualified candidate than this. What is also worrisome is he's being portrayed as the cool, hip president like Clinton and Obama were packaged. I want a serious person who is going to stand up to the various pressure groups and fight for the disintegrating rights of ALL the students on campus. Someone who can cut the massive waste and expense of Ohio State, which in my opinion has become a bloated half way house for useless administrators to the detriment of the students paying their way with ridiculous tuition rates. Can this man do this or is he just a status quo lapdog who can play guitar?
