I think this gets settled completely off the field. If Braxton decides to become a vocal leader, involves himself in team practices, games, etc. and keeps a solid presence throughout the WHAC then it will be obviously remain his team and he will be welcomed as the leader when he comes back. If he disappears and JTB becomes dominant then good luck Braxton on significant playing time. I don't think QB controversy in college is detrimental like it is in the pros so it shouldn't be a bad thing for the team, but it may be bad for Braxton.

Game one is a salute to our soldiers, game two is a salute to Braxton under the lights.

For those of you who wont have the means to tailgate, I have contacted two nearby bars about the pregame plans:

Pickles Pub, which is the #1 Orioles pregame spot, will be open at 8:00am with their gameday specials (16oz can beer for $4). The OSU v Navy game will have sound on inside and outside if you don't have a ticket. Also, during the O's game at 7pm they will have $2 16oz cans from 2nd inning to end of the 8th. 

Magerks Pub & Grill, Baltimore's main OSU watch bar, is opening at 8:30am. They should be packed with an all OSU crowd in the fun neighborhood of Federal Hill. 
 
Both of these bars are a half mile walk to the stadium, Magerks is east of the stadium in Federal Hill at S. Charles St. and E. Cross St. Pickles is north of the stadium adjacent to Camden Yards on Washington Blvd.

I expect Buckeye Central to be around Magerks Pub & Grill in Federal Hill. It's the official OSU bar in Baltimore. Cool Place, but not huge so it could be full. There are plenty of good pubs/bars a stones throw from Magerks if that's the case. Also check out Power Plant Live, walkable from Inner Harbor, if the weather is nice and you have money with you.

It's really awesome to see Pat Elflein break into the starting line-up. I have a special place in my heart for the Buckeyes who committed under Luke Fickell. Those players really had no idea what the future would hold, but wanted to be Buckeyes regardless. Best of luck to you Pat.

My question is what would his legacy become if he had won us the Orange Bowl. The opportunity was there on the final couple of drives. Miller was throwing like a jv high school QB by the end of the game with his bum shoulder. Where would you rank Kenny G's legacy among modern time OSU quarterbacks?  

EDIT: I fondly remember reading the 11W Orange Bowl Drinking Game

"FINISH YOUR DRINK, THEN TWO MORE, TAKE OFF YOUR PANTS, WRAP YOUR BELT AROUND YOUR HEAD AND SCREAM "IT'S GO TIME" IF...Braxton Miller gets injured within the first two minutes and it's the Kenny Guiton show" 

I had everyone ready to do it in the 4th Quarter. We may have been chanting Kenny G at times, but I was 12 "Miller Times" deep and it's all vague.

I agree, the title game is my choice, but I'm not sure the ticket will be worth a ton after the semi-final. I think this format will drive ticket prices down dramatically for the championship game. Last year tickets fell below $400 for the national championship game and I bet you will be able to get upper seats for $200 or less this year. Some fans can afford one game and few fans can afford two games. Don't forget the short notice of travel and added costs associated.  Combine that with the fact that there will be two schools dumping their speculative ticket purchases. I think this will be similar, but not as drastic, to the NCAA Basketball final four where you would think the championship game tickets should cost more than the semifinal game, but because of the flooded ticket market and only slightly added demand they are actually much cheaper than the semifinal. Its a good thing for the average fan so I'm not upset.

There should be a riot in the German Village. Cream Puffs for everyone!

The Nats had a B1G welcoming party thing yesterday. I never knew Bryce Harper was engaged to an OSU soccer player, but another celebrity fan wouldn't hurt. 

Comment 30 Jun 2014

Didn't the 11W site crash when he committed? I think he needs a nickname based on that, but then again Vonn Bell is a great name. Lets hope the 11W team has beefed up servers for this week like twitter for the World Cup.

Lets all agree that the Ole Miss Rebels is where the focus on changing names should start. Then we can push for all Mississippi schools being banned from college athletics until the confederate flag is removed from their state flag. That will be the PR that SEC schools deserve.

So glad you got the Espinoza mention in there. He has turned out to be an amazing player and I'm proudly supporting him and fellow CONCACAF nation Honduras in dismantling the frogs.

If Maryland wants to start selling one of those sold out/red out stadium pictures they ought to have their marketing team snapping pictures during the OSU game. Just omit the scoreboard.
