Live in Austin and checked out a game one day.  I was not really impressed with it.  There chant Texas! Fight! got annoying really quick.  Granted O-H! I-O! probably does the same thing for non Buckeyes.

Unfortunately all I have is Purdue 09, Northwestern 02, and Super Dome 07.  All were nothing exciting.

1) Do we still have a scholarship reduction due to the whole #Tatgate debacle? How many scholarships are we allowed to take each year pre/post said reductions?

Yes.  We are down 3 scholarships putting us at a maximum of 82 players.  This is the last recruiting class under penalty. 

2) For this particular recruiting class, how many players will we take this year?

As stated above currently we have 16 scholarships available.  They typically take more to replace transfers, injuries, people being kicked off the team, etc. 

3) I often see schools not taking the full amount allowable in each recruiting class. Why is that? Saving scholarships for potential transfer players? Or are schools so selective that they would rather take 22 players as opposed to say, 28, if they can't find the quality?

By NCAA rule, a class can be 25 people.  Coaches can bend this slightly and have their recruits enroll Winter Semester (aka a semester early) and count against the previous class.  As stated by Urban Can Recruit above Dream 14 was 23 people.  That means we can take 27 people in this class, but two recruits must enroll early.  That would also be a lot of attrition for us and will not happen though.  Some schools *cough* SEC *cough* over sign players and that is why you see 30 man recruiting classes now.

Parking is easy.  Jesse Owen's has a lot of spaces not too far away also a lot of fraternities on Iuka and Woodruff has parking spaces they sell for $20 I think.  Depending on where you are coming from traffic may or may not be an issue and these east side and west parking spaces will avoid a lot of the bad areas.  

You can bring a flask in pretty easily.  They ask you to open coat up like Kit Ramsey flashing the Laker girls, so just keep them in not tight pockets and you are fine.

EDIT: I know with a lot of buses you will have a long wait trying to get on them from all the people doing it.

30 is adulthood?  This has to be the best thing I heard all day.  I am still a kid!

I am not positive on anything I am about to say but am pretty sure it is true or close to it.

  1. Players noticed while recruiting older players
  2. Players attended camps at early ages
  3. Coaches/players/family/friends send game tape to staffs and they look at it (not necessarily coaches)
  4. Word of mouth

I think she came out afterwards saying she was sober but not positive

I have had a craving for White Castle for so long now.  They really need to expanded more south so I can get some of the best burgers again.

The problem is those teams will still all be ranked high because they only play sister of the poor schools out of conference then really "tough" games in conference so they beat up on each other.
