Your team enjoys historically high attendance. Even this year. I endured 2011 as a student season ticket holder, and perhaps that isn't a fair comparison. but, that year tickets weren't practically given away to students. The promotions are where the ridicule comes in. That said, the school is doing what it can to prevent massive empty seats in a tough year. I am not sure that's worthy of ridicule. However, I take pleasure in it because, well, I am a twisted Buckeye and its TTUN.

Thanks for this. I watched in a bar and couldn't hear. I typically go to the games. I must say, the BTN broadcast was far better than I expected.

Wonder how bad we're beating them when you remove the prescans and other tricks TSUN has deployed this year.

Yeah, its terrible for our athletic department to have more money for scholarships, recruiting, and all the other things it does that we like.

I'll be there behind the Maryland bench in row A (I assume the first row) with my Ohio flag

If you read something about an amazing feat of strength and Nick Bosa, just roll with it.

Except that DJ will write something absurd when you least/most expect it. Love him for it.

People clamor for gray boxes because gray boxes announce breaking news and have become synonymous for new recruits. If a gray box appears, get a celebratory gif ready.

Think of 11W as a sports bar. You can be a bit risque but there are still decency standards. 

If you do well enough, you'll get an invite once you reach a certain number of helmet stickers, to the premium lounge. There is some confusion because the exact number of helmet stickers necessary is never made public, and once the number is reached a poster is then eligble to recieve an invite but it is certainly not guarenteed the invite will be extended. I have probably said too much but ***premium members content only*** but there ***premium members content only***
What I can say for certain is that at the premium lounge the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano.

Don't demean recruits, even if they choose another school.

Know that if someone posts any lyric to Bohemian Rhapsody, a chorus of commenters will finish the song.



EDIT: OK Lounge mods, I think you may have been a little zealous on classifying those secrets. That's know info.

Agreed. Also, love your 11w name. It's so mysterious.

Last year, mistakes or not, the opposing QB was probably going to have a career day. This year, mistakes will lead to points, but as players learn the scheme and improve their techniques, fewer mistakes will occur and the D will be better. Still might be "one sword" as Fickell puts it not three. This D has the possibility to improve with its players whereas last year's D could not improve despite counting two NFL first round picks within its ranks.

BTW, thanks Maryland for playing decent football thus far. You've certainly increased my excitement about this game and about your membership in the B1G.

Comment 29 Sep 2014

The difference between this year and last is that last year there were schematic problems such that even if our players improved, the D would still gashed 10-20 yards at a time. Evidenced by Roby's relative ineffectiveness. This year, the scheme is much better but there are some gambles. When a guy makes a mistake, it will often mean a big play. As the guys develop there will be less big plays. Kiel is a good qb (dude throws a nice long ball), he made the Buckeyes pay for mistakes. The guys will get better back there. Apple has a lot of promise. He just needs a bit of seasoning.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

This looks like a year when the top teams all have 1-2 losses. FSU might be running out of luck soon. Oregon has some tough tests remaining. A&M nearly lost to Bert. Its a long season. If the Buckeyes win out they'll have a nice bowl game and maybe a chance at a NC.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

What VT does from here on out is close to irrelevant. If the Buckeyes string some wins together the narrative will be that a new qb and new o-line flubbed one early but that was a fluke that wouldn't happen again.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

What fairy tales beat a Buckeye NC?

I don't get how you can be CERTAIN the Buckeyes won't get past MSU.

Nobody in CFB looks elite right now.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

Cincinatti is some sort of bizarro world where the high school you attended still matters after getting a professional degree and the Bearcats talk smack like their coach is named Nick Saban.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

There seem to be a correlation between TBDBITL doing an amazing show and the Buckeyes putting up 50.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

The difference between this year's D and last year's D is that, this year, mistakes will cost TDs. As the players make fewer mistakes, the D will be more and more effective. Whereas last year, the scheme cost TDs. Thus, TDs would occur regardless of whether the players improve. Consider Roby having a "bad year," dude was a first round pick! If its Grant and Roby out there last night, 2 of those three plays most likely don't happen. Apple is young and has a bright future. As his technique improves this D will improve. That wasn't the case last year.

The first TD on Vonn is a "tip your hat" type of play. Vonn's coverage was good but the receiver came down with it any way. Not much can be done about that.

Comment 28 Sep 2014

I agree. Herman deserves some credit for calling a beautiful game. He stretched the D horizontal, vertically, hit the middle, and opened up seams. I loved the pistol! Nice seeing a fb in there! Rod Smith had a nice day running inside as well.

As for Barrett, I noticed he went through several progressions often throwing to late reads, then if nothing was open he tucked and ran. Difference between he and Brax is that Brax would've looked at one or two then tucked but where Barrett gained 7 Brax gets 30. However, Brax would miss some guys and isn't as accurate. Barrett does a nice job of keeping the offense on schedule (hence the record number of first downs). Barrett will improve, get better at feeling blitzes, establish better timing (although he is good at hitting guys in stride). If he stays healthy he'll hold every Buckeye passing record.

People tend to neglect parking south of the stadium and I don't understand it. There is a lot that is only $5 in the arena district. You can COTA to the game or even walk. You'll also be in close proximity to decent restaurants and bars.

Paging LeBron James. Seriously, can we just get a Batman-esque call light on top of Ohio Stadium for when we need LBJ to show up on the sidelines.

I bet gametime could do a pretty cool rendition of what that would look like.
Maybe this projecting into the sky
