Il_Padrino, I'm trying to start my own Ohio State vs. Michigan ticket stub collection. If you have any duplicates that you're willing to sell, can you send me a PM? I saw your picture collection and fell in love with the idea!
Lost out on a 1922 Ohio State vs. Michigan ticket which was the dedication game of the Shoe and a 1950 Ohio State vs. Michigan Snow Bowl program this weekend alone on eBay... I have never been more traumatized. Hopefully it was a Buckeye fan that won both items, if not, I'm going to be more upset. So if you won either, please let me know so I can at least be happy that a fellow Buckeye outbid me on both items
I'm heading out that way soon so I'll try and stop by. Thanks for the help!
I would be fine with either real vintage, or vintage looking. I will give that thread a look. Thanks for the help IL!
Wow, I am blown away from the help! Thank you all, I'll be sure to give everything a look. Didn't even cross my mind to print out the game posters but that is a great idea!
Always glad to see players stick it out and earn starting positions (Jones and Knox). I know nothing is concrete, albeit that it's still spring. But still glad to see them running with the starters.
Also glad to have a healthy Dontre back as well. Having some of these older players like Wilson, Smith, Elflein, Price, JT on offense really helps.
It's exciting not knowing what to expect this coming season. Hopefully the injury bug stays away this year!
What is your favorite pizza from Mario's?
They are available at Finish Line and Dick's for those who were wondering.
1.) I've been waiting for Dixon to really break out, but he has been slowed by knee injuries. Hope he finally gets over the hump.
2.) Baugh also came in as a highly touted recruit, he has shown flashes. Also looking forward to getting the tight ends a little more involved in the offense
3.) Obviously, Noah Brown was the talk of camp last year. Going to see what he brings to the table
Kid had so many unrealistic expectations thrust upon him at age 14, it was ridiculous. IIRC, Massillon was a dumpster fire at the time he was named the starter as a Freshman. I'm not from the area, but I swear I remember reading something about it.
Anyways, Danny is a great kid and has lots of potential. I remember walking to the RPAC one day back in college and he was there on a visit and proceeded to hold the door open for about 50 people as they walked inside. I think he will go on to become a great player and leader for the team. Hardest thing about some of the kids nowadays is the buy-in to the program. Seems like he has been all-in since he could walk
Also Scott McVey
Talking with him right now. He said it is fine with him but he has to check with the other members on his committee. I know you said you had all the correct paperwork, liquor license, and everything of that nature. Did anything change between the time we spoke and now? The fraternity has a separate party in the back and would not be attending Dubgate out front unless they pay to attend the event so there wouldn't be a liability at all. Do you think this could work?
I'm a moron and forgot to get in contact with the current president of my old fraternity as we discussed prior to the Va Tech game (Too many Rails made my mind hazy). Let me give him a call at lunch and I'll see what we can do about having the Dubgate on the front lawn.
Great, thanks HokiePro! CharlotteBux and I will be sitting in section 17 row uu. Looking forward to it!
Which seats are lower to the field? Double lettered seats or tripled lettered seats? Example AA or AAA.
So last spring semester was my final semester at Ohio State. Best 5 years of my life, I might add. Anyways it was Thursday night, just a few days before graduation. The Cavs were playing the Bulls in game 6 and they were looking to close out the series. So my friends and I went to Chumley's for schooner night and watched the entire game there. By the time the game had ended, I had downed 5 schooners (32 ounces a schooner) of Yuengling Black and Tan. We are all feeling great and are ready to take on the World. To celebrate the Cavs series win, we then headed out and went to Out R Inn. Here, our horrible plan starts to develop. We decide that we (graduating baseball seniors) are all going to go into the stadium and take a senior picture on the 50 yard line. Note: All week, people had been going into the stadium to take senior pictures and did not get in trouble at all so we thought we were good going to do it at 2:30 AM. Well, after I don't know how many double whisky cokes at Out R Inn, we begin our inevitable descent to the Shoe. We go in through an unlocked gate so everything is going well.....
So let me backtrack some. On our way to the stadium, we see another group messing around by us at Smith Lab. Some kid tries to go in through the window and the whole damn building went off with alarms. Security cars and cop cars are speeding around trying to get to the building. We jog off to distance ourselves since we weren't involved. One of my friends Tom, who was smarter than the rest of us, said it probably wasn't a good idea to go into the stadium with all the cops on alert. So he left and on his way home, gets stopped by the cops on his way and they start questioning him about Smith Lab.
So fast forward again and we are in the Stadium and get to the 50 yard line. The graduation area is in the middle of being set up and I get nostalgic reminiscing about my college career. Well, all good things come to an end as my phone starts ringing. It's Tom so I answer. I remember answering my phone and Tom says in a panicked voice, "Dude, where are you guys right now!?" I reply, "50 yard line man!!!" Tom then just replies, "RUN! Cops are coming!". (Apparently when the cops stopped to question Tom, they got radioed in about kids in the Stadium doing 100 yard sprints down the sideline.) I don't really remember what happened during the time that I left the 50 yard line and the time when I went out through the North band ramp trying to escape, but the next thing I remember was being covered in mulch and I had my hands cuffed behind my back. I'm screwed, I'm not walking at graduation. Parents are going to kill me. I'm going to lose my job.
I had never been in trouble with the law and went through college unscathed. I'm a good kid. Three days until graduation though. THREE DAYS. And I make the stupidest decision of my life. So I'm sitting outside of the rotunda and one by one, all the seniors are getting brought to my location tied up like a bunch of cattle. So all of us get a talking to. We're told that Ohio Stadium is a top terrorist target and with graduation being only days away, security was increased 10 times more. They were telling us they weren't going to let us graduate and walk. Like come on, I've been here five years already. I love Ohio State but I'm not trying to be on Tommy Boy college plan. I need to get out of college.There had to have been 20 cop cars, I kid you not.
Well thankfully, we were all cooperative and told them what had happened and told them we were sorry. I honestly think one of the kids was sobbing but I can't confirm that right now. Well, they let us go. History. I had never been so scared in my life.
I graduated on May 10th and it had to have been the saddest day of my life. For all of you new Buckeyes starting your Freshman year, cherish it. These next 4, 5, and even possibly 6 years will be the best time of your life. Don't blink because when you finally open up your eyes, you'll have a diploma in hand and you'll be walking out of Ohio Stadium wondering where the time went.
My Freshman year I lived in Park Hall when it was still, 'Park Hall'. Back then, there was back turnaround lot where Baker, Park, and Stradley hall all met. I don't know how the idea came about, but my best friend and I decided it would be a good idea to have a keg in our dorm room. So we had an upperclassmen we knew go pick us up a keg and had him bring it to the back lot. If you went to Ohio State, you know the red move in bins. Well anyways, we 'borrowed' one of those and took it to the back lot from underneath the basement tunnel where Baker and Park connected. Unloaded the keg into the cart, threw some clothes, posters, and a TV on top of the keg and rolled it on into the tunnel and took the elevator up to the 4th floor of Park. That night, there had to have been 30 people sardine-canned into our tiny double room. We never got caught and to this day, I still don't know how we didn't.
What's up father 'Banski
We can breathe a sigh of relief as it was just announced that it was a leg injury, and not a neck injury. From the ominous tweets, it sounded like more than a leg injury. Still, it sucks and we can only hope he has a hassle-free recovery.
Gotta imagine VT is going to sell all out for the run now (If they weren't already). Hopefully these young guys step up on the outside
Noah Brown is a great kid, world-class.— Jeremy Birmingham (@Birm) August 26, 2015
I had Travis last year for my senior capstone class and I'm going to be honest, I was surprised this was him. If you know the man, the myth, and the legend known as T Helm, you know what I'm talking about. This cracks me up.
He was the man by the way so if you have a chance, try and enroll into his class.
And little did I know that my old college roommate that I'm visiting started this thread... Oooooops.
See you in 11 days 'Ler
Just bought my flight to Charlotte today! Going to meet up with my old college roommate there Saturday and head towards Blacksburg on Sunday.
As far as tickets go though, I went to both the Sugar Bowl and National Championship and scalped tickets for fairly cheap considering the magnitude of the games. I bought Lower bowl both games for between $125 and $200 (Sugar Bowl I was almost front row). Also went to Penn State and sat front row for $95. I would suggest waiting up right until game day or a day before if you don't want to overpay. BUT, there is always that chance you don't find a ticket.
Looking forward to the Buckeye presence down in Virginia
