I might be in the minority but I see no problem with this conversation...TBDBITL is big time, a lot is expected. Waters is essentially the coach of the band and coaches talk to players this way all the time, it's called tough love.
Michigan, where a hockey game in the dead of winter is a guaranteed sell-out but parlor tricks are required to fill the big house when football is played there.
OSU student here. Any OSU student who wants season tickets also has access to them, at very similar (maybe even higher, didn't check) prices as scUM, and Ohio State, as stated, will sell twice as many this year. Something is fundamentally wrong in AA. I have been to the last two OSU-Mich games in AA, sat with U of M undergrad friends in the student section on each occasion and can say without a doubt that last years atmosphere was about half as intense as the 2011 game. Brandon sold out tradition for bells and whistles and this is the result, hiring a coach of the caliber of a program like Michigan might be a good idea as well. As a guy who has three HDTVs in my apartment living room I can tell you that they are not the competition, there's no way in hell Im missing a down of OSU football played in the horseshoe this season, you gotta be there.
If Heurman holds on that play we get the first down and Dantonio has no choice but to give us another shot on 4th down. Hindsight is a b*tch
Hyde. Not that you would know it from watching last weeks tape....
I'll be in the student section repping scarlet and gray!

Monday would work so would Wednesday. The day is arbitrary, and wasn't mandated by the university, that's my point. Students realized Tuesday worked best and chose it as such. Dr J and her goon squad didn't dictate Tuesday as the day.
You realize it's illegal all the time right? The only reason it moved from Thursday to Tuesday 2 years ago was because a bunch of people put together a Facebook event and organized it as such...if 10,000 people change their minds and decide to go tomorrow night it will be just as much fun as usual.
A lot of people are planning on it
RDS back next year with Grant alongside would be a great pair, mix in a few young backers and the front 7 could be absolutely dominant.
"Run it up Herman....leave no doubt!"
edit: realized this works as a Remember the Titans quote and something Urban could tell T Herman Saturday, hell yeah!
"No, no, no. Hell no. F*ck. F*ck this shit."
-My reaction if that abomination of a program hired Tress. No sarcasm font necessary.
I agree completely, especially regarding enjoying college football. Maybe saying it is for nothing was a little over the top, I know the players are working and playing their asses off, which is why for their sake anything short of a NGC appearence would be a sham. They have earned the right to play for a title with their play this season (and last, although technically what you did last season only counts if you play in the $EC).
I have to respectfully disagree. If we go undefeated and win the Rose Bowl this season will be for nothing...two undefeated seasons in a row, bested the all time OSU winning streak and all we get out of it is a lousy Rose Bowl win. Dont get me wrong I LOVE the Rose Bowl, but after what this team has been through and all the wins they have piled up if it doesn't amount to a shot at the national championship it will be a real shame.
On 2, who has FSU played that is more impressive than us? Maybe Clemson? If we end up playing MSU for the B1G that's a push IMO....
edit: you seem to have forgotten that had Wisconsin not gotten hosed by ASU they are a top ten team.
Their o-line and rushing game are no match for our defense. They haven't played a legit d-line all year. I seriously like our chances if we get a shot at them.
Agreed. Fellow fans have quickly forgotten that OSU started ranked #2 and would still be there if not for blatant media bias.
Yes. The Rose Bowl is great and all....but I want to see Urban hoisting the crystal come Jan 6th.
He left his position at OSU to coach with Hazell as Purdue, guessing Fick meant he tried to convince him to stay on staff at Ohio State.
Really hope for a 31-point win, wouldn't bet on that spread, though.
IMO the Texas game was louder and in general much more rowdy than the USC game, the shoe had an edge that night. Both were great environments, the shoe needs to get back to that level. I doubt we will ever see it again unless students are spread out again (not happening $$$).
State Penn fans want this game to be a rivalry SO BAD. At this point OSU is pretty much mocking how much they hate us.
