75% of my family originated from the South. I love the South. It's a shame that vocal minorities can't stop using symbols of the past that end up mislabeling the region as a whole.
All the ones that I've seen do it.
I would love to practice sports med for a professional (or big time college) team but I can imagine the pressure from ownership has to be crazy. I hope their staff stayed true to their oaths.
Personally, I feel like O-H's should be reserved for times when you're just going about your everyday business and you happen upon another Buckeye in a place that is at least 2,000 miles away from Columbus.
In general, the call and response cheers each school seems to have just seem lazy to international soccer fans.
Chris Hoch is the man.
Camp Randall, Kinnick and Beaver are on my bucket list.
Texas fans (my aunt and myself not included) are a fickle bunch. The atmosphere at DKR heavily relies on the team's current success. Compare this with Ohio Stadium in 2011, Texas A&M always, anytime LSU plays at night, etc.
I really enjoyed going to East Lansing in 2012 with the band. Everyone on the campus was welcoming and showed us some cool spots where we could sit down for our gameday lunch. The stadium atmosphere was fantastic as well. Their student section and their band were very coordinated. The canned music selection was on point- lots of good rock with a great taste in rap. Their campus allows open containers on football saturdays too, so I look forward to returning as a fan.
Minnesota in 2010 was fun as well. Beautiful little stadium and the crowd is passionate (but sparse). Favorite moment: Minnesota scores a meaningless touchdown and a guy behind us yells, "THIS IS WHAT 20,000 SCREAMING FANS SOUNDS LIIIIIKE." Yes, Maximus, I was entertained.
Illinois and Purdue were sad.
The Big House was cool because college football. I would like to return when Michigan is playing better for a true comparison. Many people at Michigan boo and heckle the band and it's great. The alums also cheer us when we perform well. Their stadium staff is very, very rude though. I hope our logistics people treat their band better when they come to The Shoe.
I would love a home-home with Texas A&M. I've been to Kyle Field twice, including a failed attempt to rally my Longhorns from the upper deck in 08. I hate them so much but every college football fan base can learn from their crowd. It's amazing what their yell leaders can do.
They beat us. It's their's until we take it back.
If you're going to jump ship, it's best if the other ship is afloat.
He is 600 lbs.
I agree about Seven Nation Army. Personally, I love the bells on 3rd and 4th downs. Block O, the band, cheerleaders and the athletic department need to get together to figure out what the students want to get pumped.
Our hype/entrance videos definitely could be better. I did love the first 30 seconds of the video from 2012. That, and the roar of the crowd, always sent chills down my spine before the team came on.
I was at both as well. I remember during the USC game the crowd stood and yelled straight though the TV timeouts. Those really suck the life out of the stadium if it isn't a matchup between top 10 teams.
It's a fair point. Right now the animated stick figures are TBDBITL's EzE 8 yard carry on 1st down. It's gets publicity every time. Once the YouTube hits and "EPIC/FTW" headlines go away, they'll adapt appropriately.
I think Urban's coaching priorities are at practice, developing his talent. In-game, Tuberville, has to treat it more like a chess match since he fields less talent. If the coaches switch teams it very well could have been UFM saying that to Tuberville.
I loved the 6pm start. I also enjoy BTN's coverage. I did think that Thom was little rusty with his football last night though.
Yeah, I prefer my DBs to turn around. If they give up a few extra TDs over the course of the season, so be it. I also stopped playing football when I was an 80lb cornerback so I don't know much.
We expect way too much out of our freshmen and sophomores thanks to the emphasis put on recruiting these days. How many guys become shutdown corners before they have a few years of D1 ball under their belt?
It should be 37-14. Young RBs are gonna fumble it's whatevs. Three straight drops by Dontre, EzE and Dev really had me cursing.
A&M and Cincinnati could switch defenses and no one would notice.
Forgive me for not combing through forums while the Bucks are playing. It's not like forums get upvotes anyway so there isn't really a benefit to me.
