Football makes money, but as it always noted, the B1G cares about the educational side of it more because it makes more money.

Yes research dollars are in $ billions.  Money from athletics is in $ millions.

I'd like to see Burrell, Gallimore, Baker and Wariboko along with whatever combination of Harris/Gibson/Cager space allows for.

Every time I have been there I have stayed well outside of State College. 

Traffic in and out was a mess. 

The fans were, by far, the least hospitable I have experienced in the Big Ten, and I have been to every Big Ten campus (except Rutgers).

The academic side of the Big Ten Conference, the CIC, has a combined ~$9 Billion in research funding.  AAU standing and research dollars are certainly a big part of what is considered by Big Ten schools when looking to expand. 

TV revenues for athletics are in millions of dollars. Research is in billions of dollars.

Oklahoma and Florida State are not members of the Association of American Universities, which is something the academic side of the Big Ten, the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) has wanted.  (Nebraska is not currently in the AAU, but they were when they were accepted to the Big Ten. They were subsequently kicked out of the AAU. I've read that they are going to apply for reinstatement to the AAU soon.).

The CIC conducts a combined $8 Billion in funded research, so what they desire is considered.

I actually love the O-H-I-O cheer when it goes around Ohio Stadium (from South Stands to the east side, to the closed end, and to the west side).

And, when that cheer gets started in an away stadium it is great, as well.

Fortunately, I have not been in this situation for Ohio State football games, but with Ohio State basketball games, if I can't see them live, I DVR it and hope that it isn't spoiled by someone.

The Rose Bowl

Though Sun Devil Stadium and the experience there for the National Championship was great too, obviously.

Because he realized that idiot fans on message boards would blow it out of proportion?

Also, did you think Bosa was leaving when he tweeted the following?:

He's just looking forward to making a trip home on the bye week. 

When I was in school at Ohio State I loved it--but still always looked forward to trip home.

No need to blow this up in to more than that, in my opinion.

FWIW, it looks like Accuweather's forecast is a little more dry.
