Y1, Y2, W and X are where I've had tickets directly from OSU previously.

RE: parking: The stadium is surrounded on 3 sides by campus and the 4th by a residential neighborhood. If you're lucky, you can find a spot at the hospital garage or other campus garages (there's no huge fields like you find at OSU, PSU or UM). Best bet is to park downtown and walk.  State street is closed to traffic and has lots of bars catering to pregame crowds.

Tailgating is different in Madison - it's bars and house parties because they don't have the aforementioned huge lots and fields that promote tailgating.  Should you walk down state street, just bar hop until you get to the stadium.  Worst case you eat a lot of brats and cheese curds; best case you eat a lot of brats and cheese curds.

From a recent ESPN chat with Vince Doria:

How does ESPN decide how much attention to give to a particular NCAA scandal. As an Ohio State fan, I have been following that story closely and the stories ESPN has run multiple stories using old or false information while other colleges have gotten much less attention.

I'll preface this by noting that I happen to be an Ohio State graduate (journalism, 1970). That said, I think we have reported fairly on a number stories involving violations in college football, including USC, Tennessee, North Carolina, Miami, so forth. No doubt we did perhaps more enterprise reporting on the problems at Ohio State. As in the case with most news entities, we feel an obligation to report the news, which I believe we have done with a variety of universities. When looking deeper, there are a combination of two variables. How important in the landscape is the offending party? In the case of Ohio State, it is arguably one of the two or three most prominent college football programs in the country. A second aspect is the type of information you have access to, the sources, the willingness of the sources to provide information, and so forth.
