Ominous statistics on ohio high school football. Unfortunately, I see this becoming a national trend as more and more parents opt not to involve their kids in football in light of all the concussion awareness.

Thank you DJ! You just fulfilled my dream of getting a reply from an 11W staff member. I can now die a happy buckeye!

The problem with getting there early is, especially for night games, is that I'd already be hammered by 3, need a nap and then feel like crap throughout the game.

Attended Eat II Brutus, now dubgate, last year and I highly recommend it. Great beer, great food and awesome raffles and silent auction items that any buckeye fan would enjoy. Mo Clarett made an appearance and was more than welcoming despite the mob of fans surrounding him. It was more than worth the ticket price when a ticket was required and now it's only by donation! Again... I highly recommend it. Please donate freely to keep this great event going.

My only concern is what this will do to the crowd. It was already packed last year. Plus I think needing a ticket might have kept away the visiting fans.

To be fair, the NCAA has ruled that all schools can help offset the cost of a loss of value policy.  It's not just FSU. I would not at all be surprised if Braxton has one and that the university helped pay for it.

Here's the link

but I think the OP if a little off in his judgement of TP. I'm sure this isn't the first time he has said this and I've yet to see a public acknowledgement of wrongdoing from the others. Besides, in my opinion, he doesn't owe anyone an apology. He broke no law, only a dated ncaa rule that in a few years won't exist anymore. TP did a lot more fore the school than he did to hurt it. In time he'll be forgivin to the same degree as Mairice Clarett

James Patrick Tressel, forever keepin it gangsta. 

Seriously though, this is great. I can just picture Tress bumping Pac on his Beats headphones while wearing his bandana backwards and flipping double birds to the police.

Remember that Curtis was once that fish also. If I remember correctly, he was a signing day commit and had Buckeye nation ecstatic being a 5 star recruit at a position of need. I think we sometimes are too quick to jump on "the next big thing". Who knows, McMillan might be Curtis Grant 2.0 (Etienne Sabino as well) in that it takes him a few years to get it. Either way, he's got my support and it'll be a joy watching the ride.

I remember when Hyde committed in the same class as Jamal Berry and was an afterthought. I was head over heels after watching Berry's highlight tape. And then Hyde spent a year a Fort Union and was forgotten in my mind. Just goes to show that hard work, dedication, loyalty and a drive to succeed trump everything else. Go kill em Gaup!

"Ohio State was always the place I wanted to be and the offer I wanted. I grew up loving Ohio State," Cager told 11W as he released his final seven schools. "I think that's enough said about the Buckeyes, and people can infer from that whatever they'd like to."

ill infer that that means he'll be a Buckeye!
