You bought 2014 Sugar bowl for $200?  That's great but that wasn't even the biggest problem I had with that game.  How did you do airfare vs. ticket timing?  I find the tickets go down as the game approaches but the airfare goes up.

The real issue for that game (for me) was airfair was crazy $800 per leg for my wife and I (from DC area), hotels were crazy (huge rates plus 3 night minimums etc) and the tickets were crazy.  It was roughly $5k iirc to take my wife and I.  I'm not poor and I'm huge fan, but I just couldn't pull the trigger.

Championship game was roughly $1000 total per person including airfair, hotel and tickets.  Had to pull the trigger on that one.

I went to the 2010 Sugar bowl against Arkansas and I think I was all in for around $500 not including hotel.

Ohio state vs Alabama will not be cheap if that's what happens.  In 2014 I went to the championship game and it was roughly half the sugar bowl.  I think we paid $300+/- for championship game and they were asking $550 for Sugar bowl.  That said it was in NOLA on New Year's Day vs Dallas on a Monday(?).

we used stub hub and it was great/easy.

2016 baby!

For everyone talking about how they don't root for the big 10, a la the sec, I say a good conference and a good non conf win makes osu an easy pick for the cfp.

I disagree for 2 reasons:

1) the big won most of its games, so why would you discount it?

2) Just because they may be down this year doesn't mean they didn't schedule tough. The big played  Washington, Norte dame, Oregon, BYU, Duke, UNC, Oregon state, Pitt

compare the best big 10 wins vs the other conference wins, then tell me the big10 didn't have the best OOC season

I'm in the same boat.  If the highlight was 8 minutes long it would be similar to Clowney.  Every kid at OSU has an unreal highlight tape, this is special even among that group.
