I wouldn't say she was awful. 

She made a terrible mistake on that very first potential goal-scoring opportunity, yes. That was more than awful. 

But overall she did a respectable job.

Despite only winning 1-0, this was our most convincing win yet.  I liked our tempo, possession, general decisions made, and starting lineup.  Here's to rooting on #Freedom to yet another victory against Germany.

Tonight's game is a perfect example of why she should only play coming off the bench.  We're able to maintain a much faster pace without Abby in the lineup.  The Krieger-O'Hara-Rodriguez combo played particularly well tonight.

Totally not a knock on Abby, either.  But you know what you're getting with her in, and sometimes when you're struggling to win games... shaking up the line-up (and putting more youth in) can work wonders.

I went to the IU game 2 years ago. We got the tickets 2 days before (30 yard line, 10 rows from the field) for $5 a piece. Stadium was 70% full, 40% OSU fans. No worries, man.

I also don't completely disagree but the other side is that she was punished, served her punishment, and has been cleared. Let's not forget players in the NFL get virtually the same treatment (see: Ray Lewis)

I don't follow the ESPY'S (or any award shows for that matter) and I understand the feelings of most of what the posters have had to say.  With that said... seriously guys?  These are two people (three if you add in Noah Galloway) who have all been in very different situations and were all courages in each instance.  The fact that ESPN feels the need to award one person is the problem. Give them all the award. 

In the end ESPN gets what they want.  We're still talking about it.

I assume he means Brain Bennett is leading in accurate reporting of JT Barrett's accurate throwing... Or no?

Current student here.  From just driving around outside of campus, there are a few more options out there that are relatively close and I haven't seen mentioned yet (sorry if I missed them).

~2 miles up from the Shoe on Olentangy there is a Hampton, Hilton Garden, and Varsity Inn just off the top of my head (a bit further down from the Red Roof Inn).  I would guess it's about a 30 minute walk.  If that's too far of a hike on foot, there should be a bus that runs down Olentangy (not 100% sure though, with the marathon).  Otherwise you could cab/Uber it.

-Further south on Olentangy there is the Varsity Inn South and a SpringHill Suites.  Probably a shorter walk, definitely closer to the stadium.

Unfortunately, there aren't many options within walking distance to campus.  I know even the ones I listed are a stretch, especially for a night game.  I would maybe suggest contacting COTA and seeing how the bus routes will be affected by the marathon.  If they aren't, the 2 bus headed south takes you right downtown where you'll have no problem finding a nice hotel. 

Good luck Brewin!

I think the general feeling is that this was it.

Thanks for starting the thread, Johnny.  See you in October.
