So the flight the OP posted is today.

Rovell obviously means flights around the bowl game.

Round trip on the same airline (Southwest) look mostly sold out and ones that are left are definitely over $1000 already.

And tickets are going well below face on secondary market.

Rovell is 100% correct. Why are people jumping all over him?

They beat last years defending Division 1 champs, St. Edward, not once, but twice this year.

I was at the Regional Final a few weeks ago. Heartbreaking loss for Eds. They looked to be going in for the go-ahead TD late in 4th, but their QB broke his leg, and lost in OT.

Not that it would change the % that much, but 208 private schools or 208 private schools that play football? There are still some private schools that are not co-ed.

Cleveland completed a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers just prior to making the deal with Andersen in order to make things work under the salary cap

This is false. Cavs could've signed Birdman at any time. Trading away Kaun had no bearing on the Cavs ability to sign Birdman. It'll certainly save Dan Gilbert some luxury tax money, which is good because Kaun is not worth a roster spot, but still didn't stop us from signing Birdman.

I've given up hope that the average NBA reporter will understand the salary cap, but when respected reporters like Woj can't even be bothered to know the rules, we've got issues.

For every away playoff game, the Cavs hold a Watch Party at the Q. Tickets are $5, but it all goes to Cleveland charities.

As you can imagine, the demand for the Game 7 Watch Party is absurd. I am a season ticket holder, so I was lucky enough to get a special pre-sale. However, the rest of the tickets sold out in about a minute. Some of them were bought by scalpers who are now selling a $5 charity ticket for $100+ online.

There are less seats available because the RNC has started their prep work for the Convention. The Cavs then sold some more tickets for fans who wanted to stand outside the arena and watch the game on big screens. That also sold out in about a minute.

There is a petition for the Cleveland Indians to open up Progressive (formerly Jacobs) Field at it's 30,000+ capacity. The scoreboard there is huge and would make a great Watch Party. Please consider signing this petition. I'd very much like to celebrate with as many Clevelanders as possible on Sunday.

I've always been pretty confident he would've gone to Akron with his HS coach and 2 of his HS teammates. Definitely back in 2003 during the OBrien era.

I also think his relationship with OSU is more business than fandom. Don't get me wrong, he grew up in Ohio, likes football, so he certainly likes OSU. But his true passion is for Akron first.

Not that there is necessarily anything wrong with one of the biggest college brands connecting with one of the biggest athlete brands. It makes sense, and I think has been beneficial for both sides. It wouldn't surprise me if his agency eventually starts signing NFL players, and he uses his relationship with OSU for inroads. Just be aware that it is more about business than it is about being an OSU fan.
