Right before Thanksgiving break? No, not likely.
Part of the "three knocks" pre-game tradition. Symbolizes that the band has arrived and the game can begin. Longer version below.
There are a variety of reasons this is such a load of crap. Even the guy who started it is walking it back.
Kind of thought it was a long shot, but still sad to see his time end this way. Hope he opts to finish his degree since the university is willing to help him.
I think people are making a bigger deal out of the piped in music than it was, half the stadium was empty when the game started because of the ice apocalypse and they were just trying to get some volume in the place. Once people actually showed up they dialed it back appropriately.
So everyone is just assuming this low-res picture tweeted from the Mattaritaville account is legit?
EDIT: Yeah this looks like a shop from a picture of the old scoreboard. If anyone needs a refresher, this is what the current scoreboard looks like.
In case you were wondering, an OSU spokesman just told me that no, Ohio State isn't removing the UM from Ohio Stadium with a crane.— Matt Brown (@MattSBN) November 24, 2014
Likelihood of favorite NFL team losing on Thanksgiving: Ohio 6thWait, what? Are there a bunch of Detroit Lions fans in Ohio I don't know about?
The playoff committee has only been doing rankings for the last four weeks though, that #5 was by the AP which is more or less meaningless in the post-BCS era. You do raise an interesting point, but it's impossible to know what they did or didn't think of us in August.
Perhaps a heated bench would improve this gentleman's tremendous butthurt?
7:45pm Eastern, 6:45pm Central
One of the best ADs Ohio State has ever had.
335 glorious yards
