They won't displace the PSLs opposite the benches for more students. Sadly, the front row knitting lady stays.
"Spruce it up" = new team shop, homage to Urban, and pictures of All-americans of the last twenty years.
That's two separate questions. Covelli Arena will soon be built as a home for wrestling, volleyball, gymnastics, etc. You don't name something for what is probably your second-largest donor and not build it. Plus they also have a $2.5M gift for a wrestling practice facility. Eventually, St. John will be torn down & become green space/intramural fields in the latest long-range plan.
HDTV is a big part of it. OSU is stuck with VCA. They are still paying it off. They aren't going to pull a Richfield Coliseum and level it. In fact, Smith has already announced a project to "spruce it up." They won't move back to St. John as it requires massive repair if they keep it long-term and no suites. Hockey would do well with a 5K arena for both men & women with separate practice ice, but can you afford sinking that much capital into sports that don't break even?
Tickets were a lot cheaper & TV wasn't as good in those years. You only have to take a look up north & the "Two tickets for a liter of Coke" days. OSU tickets are at a tipping point & Smith knows it.
Take a look at who sits behind the tarped area and you'll get your answer - OSU President seats & Smith & wife.
I'm by no means an NCAA expert, but I think you can be paid for working camps. I remember a story about an OSU goalie who also went on a trip to Africa and used his camp money to pay the way. Then I think of the Manning/Nike events and players who are "counselors." Also the punter camp last year that ended with tragic consequences.
Why doesn't the NCAA embrace this sport? If you can sponsor a championship in skiing, why not this?
1. It used to be OSU could get by with cupcakes because of the 12K PSL tickets. I think that's dropping.
2. Why would anyone pay for an upper bowl ticket plus parking when you can watch every game on big screen HDTV?
3. BTN has caused odd start times like 9:00 PM.
Is that the new euphemism for hair on fire?
Title IX would require it. That's why colleges with large sports programs offer women rowing to help offset football. You can divide 20+ scholarships a long way.
Without Larry Johnson, OSU wouldn't stand a chance. Inner city Harrisburg is not a good place. Johnson can sell a chance to get away, yet proximity in a true emergency.
I'll guess Courtney Brown coached by Larry Johnson. Drafted by the Browns #1.
Easy prediction: Columbus, Ohio will again have the highest Nielsen rating for the first round of the NFL draft.
Bosa. Damn autocorrect.
Wish Vincent & father could have been there. Could have added another line. Union head - 1.
Yes, he announced the game. There was a long pause after Rosa recovered the fumble & Then his comment referenced in the article about making some people mad & some upset. I thought he was the latter.
Yes, I switched from Hyatt to Hilton credit card. No annual fee & 30,000 point bonus for $3K purchase in first three months. I primarily use AA for work travel & the AA Advantage card gets you the group two boarding. Plus no bag fee even though the govt reimburses.
Recently switched from Hyatt to Hilton for no annual fee. Also AA Advantage gets you group two boarding. That is good for overhead bin access.
Seeing Meyer, Schiano, and Coombs in the NFL draft green room has to be a powerful recruiting inducement.
Need some good weather for scrimmaging. Unfortunately, weather forecast for Saturday is lousy.
Time to raise the goal to 300/300. It was 250/250 when Tressel was running Dave. With the increase in tempo & 15-20 extra plays a game, 600 total yards is a realistic goal.
But it was the I formation that brought Woody to his greatest fame. Yes, the split T was formidable in short yardage, but the I got it in scoring position.
When you add in uptempo offense, defensive rotation will be a must.
