I've lived in Ohio my whole life and in the Columbus area since I was seven. I've been a Buckeye since my birth in 1980. I attended my first game in the shoe when I was seven. Since I was seven and the 1988 football season, I've only missed nine Ohio State home games. I attended every game of the 2002 national championship season except at Northwestern.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Going to the national championship game vs. Miami on January 3, 2003 and watching the Buckeyes win it all! Going to Holy Buckeye, rushing the field for TTUN game in 2006 for #1 vs. #2 and for Tressel's last game vs. TTUN in 2012 (and rushing it in 1998 and 2002), and doing O-H-I-O around the Big Outhouse in 2009. Also, going to the 2012 Buckeyes game vs. Purdue and not leaving early (never do!), seeing the Buckeyes crush Notre Dame in the Shoe in 1995, and seeing Eddie rush for 314 vs Illinois in the Shoe in 1995. Finally, attending the Ohio State vs. TSUN game where Tressel gave his famous speech about beating them after he was hired.

Which brings a question to mind...if Dantonio is still coaching once Urban is no longer with Ohio State, do we give him a call? I obviously hope that we never even have to think about this and that Urban is at Ohio State for a LONG time. Also, Dantonio is eight years older so the answer to this question is likely no.

They have two solid wins over us (in 13 years with both at home by 14 or less and one by six points over our second worst team in 54 years).

Thank you for the info. I went last year so you would think I'd know this, but I got my tickets without being aware of this then either.

Does anyone really see the committee dropping FSU yet another spot all the way to four if they win out AND moving Ohio State ahead of them too?

Comment 26 Nov 2014

I don't have an extra, but I'd like to throw out there that I am still looking to buy two B1G championship tickets (I'd rather say it here than start a new ticket thread). Does anyone have any they are looking to sell or know of where to get a pair for a reasonable price (I waited too long I think)?

Paint it yellow and round the corners...easy. This would be the shortest episode ever of Tattoo Nightmares. But, please do not let Braxton read this.

Yeah....that makes a lot of sense to downvote this. Go to a new site please $%$#%.

weather played a part in the late arriving fans.

Weather actually played a HUGE part. I'm not sure how much people realize this. I go to every Ohio State home game, and that is probably the latest arriving crowd I have ever seen. People were waiting until they were sure that the ice had melted. I saw 12 cars and a semi off the road on the way from my house in Pickerington to the game. Many had significant damage to them (the semi took out a light pole). It was a bad combo having an opponent like Indiana with roads that were a sheet of ice, and a music selection that is still a work in progress.

Jim O'Brien is returning to coach him.

Comment 23 Nov 2014

I hope he does at least one autograph signing while he is in town. He is the only signature I never got on my ball from the 2006 team. Chances are good as he will be needing cash.
