My biggest issue with night games is that my kids have fewer chances to watch the Buckeyes play live. My eight year old son loves football, loves the Buckeyes, and loves watching his favorite players.  When I was a kid, my dad and I watched every game together. I don't get to share that with my son. Instead, I tell him who won and show him the highlights. 

If if all the biggest games (with the exception of The Game) are night games, my son only gets to watch games like Purdue, Indiana, Minnesota. He missed the MSU games the last few years, the Sugar Bowl, and the NC.

Check out this site. They produce calendars featuring classic game posters. Each picture is "frame ready". I framed a few and hung them in my son's bedroom. They look great.

The hidden stat, and one that concerns me most moving forward, is fumbles/fumbles lost. Zeke fumbled in FOUR times (according to SI stats) and only lost THREE!  That's amazing. He was not only a workhorse, but was also very reliable and secure with the ball. I wonder where that ranks all time at Ohio State.

Whomever replaces Zeke, I hope they can secure the ball. Fumbles kill drives and swing momentum.

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.

Hilarious. 

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!
