Northwestern part of NJ, where I'm from (after my Ohio upbringing) is really beautiful. The Catskills and Pocono Mountains meet in the upper west part of the state.

Jersey boy here. Don't judge THE Garden State on what you find in Piscataway. There are some really beautiful parts of NJ. 

Stop laughing.  I'm serious. Go Bucks!!!

Paying it forward. Nice. 

Tickets can be really hard to come by. And at $100 plus per ticket, it can be hard for families to share the experience with kids, so I love the idea as a fan and a father. 

A few other things keep me from bringing my kids to the game. Price of tix is huge. My child's ability to actually see the game is another. And lastly, the language. I was at the Penn State game this weekend with my dad (72) and couldn't believe the language from OSU and PSU fans alike.  

Nevertheless, I love the idea and I know your gesture would be greatly appreciated!  

Any idea how you would choose a family?

Last time I took my dad to a Buckeye game was at Penn State. Got tix from a friend. Buckeyes went into halftime up by 19 or something like that. Zach Mills came in for PSU and lead a complete comeback. Devastating loss, especially surrounded by folks in white. 

Planning on a better outcome for sure!

Clearly my I am not taking my sad dad but rather my 72 year old Dad.

Stilll would like some parking info, but thanks for the sarcasm!

For me it's not necessarily the Bear, or the quality of their D-backfield that concerns me, it's what these two things together allow them to do schematically. With the ability to play man against our wide receivers, Foster was able to really mix up the looks and bring pass rushers from different positions, confusing Barrett and the o-line last year. Granted we're more experienced in those positions now, but I'm wondering what Bud has up his sleeve. Last year that team was dialed in. I expect the same Monday night. This time, though, we'll be dialed in, too. And I mean all the way up to 11. 

Go Bucks!

I want to see them lose enough games to make their fans and Coach Jim uncomfortable. I love hearing the media roast TTUN and wolverine tears taste so sweet. 

And of course I want them to lose The Game in the big house. Regardless of their record at the time, a victory on their home turf is always great!

You were always relevant. It's just that Rutgers and Maryland were irrelevant until they joined the B1G (maybe still are).

Thoughts and prayers for Zach and his Family. Stay strong!

BuckeyeDude and others,

I support your "take that" comment, but please refrain from using the word "retard" or "retarded". 

I am a special education teacher/consultant and have worked with kids with disabilities for over 20 years. It bothers me when I hear that word. Unfortunately, some states still use it to define individuals with very low IQ. 

Before you use the "R" word again, think of the mother and father who have just been told their newborn baby has Down Syndrome, or that their three your old boy has an intellectual disability and will need extensive special education services and related therapies. Imagine them hearing that word, or seeing it written. That would hurt.

I'm not trying to play politics here, just want others to be aware that the word "retarded" can hurt others even when that's not your intent. 

Thanks for reading.
