I'm really interested in the environment that will await the team at Byrd. Like, we usually know what is to be expected at the other universities across the B1G, but this will be a completely new experience.

I'm currently a graduate student at UMD (graduated from Ohio State in the Spring), and I can say that the campus is definitely excited for the game. The lottery system used to distribute tickets was completely filled with requests when the ticket request period started last week, and for the first time this season, the student section is sold out.

I'm sure that Maryland would love nothing more to knock-off the flagship program in their first B1G home game to add another tombstone in their grave next to their practice field. For each huge program win, they have a tombstone indicating RIP "Team They Beat" with the score and the date. I would really enjoy not having to walk by a constant reminder of a potential loss in my time here.

Definitely been rocking the Ohio State gear all week and looking forward to a Buckeye victory!

Hearing about the possibility that Tressel may coach at another big school drudges up the same type of pain that I had when my ex-girlfriend of two years started dating again.

In addition to the lack of title for us, I'm kinda salty over the fact that our chances of seeing Craft/Burke for the (most likely) final time have greatly diminished. If there's any match-up I love seeing in basketball, it's been those two.

Oh well. Now's time for "Survive and Advance".

I just read on ESPN that this was the first time in school history we've made a SS three straight seasons. That's surprising...

Nice comment on the finals. Personally, I prepared for Finals by watching 65 different basketball games Thursday-Sunday.

Speaking of the women's team, they absolutely got snubbed with their seed. I'm not a huge women's basketball, but most of ESPN's experts say that they were under-seeded for sure. They had a rough couple of weeks to end the season, but nowhere near as bad to obtain an 8.
