Wow, great pics! I have no idea why attendance was so low for the Wilmington game. Was it weather? Influenza pandemic? I have tried researching this matter but can't find anything
They will appear one way or another with the hope that they appear for you next Friday! I forgot to compliment your collection by the way, very impressive! I have started the helmet evolution as well but taking a break from spending in order to prepare the funds for traveling this football season.
I'll be going to the Oklahoma game as well so I'm sure we will run into one another at the game. Still have to book my flight though...
I would imagine he would have all 3 of those programs so I will let you know next Friday.
So I was actually inspired to start my collection because Il_Padrino had originally done so. I thought it was a great idea and copied so I can't take any credit for that. I have some tickets that he doesn't have, but he has some tickets that I don't have and the ones that he has that I'm missing are far more valuable than the ones that I own that he is missing. Maybe one day though!
I just added the OSU vs UM album so give it a look if you want! I also plan on visiting every B1G stadium; going to cross off Camp Randall and Spartan stadium this year. After that, I'll just need to visit Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Purdue!
Riley, I am going to see him next Friday so I will check with him about the programs. Which ones do you happen to be missing?
Also, he likes to keep his collection and identity very low-key because he doesn't want anything to get stolen but I don't think he'd mind if I took pictures so I will see what I can do.
Here is a link to my collection because uploading photos onto this forum is ridiculously hard and I seem to be inept.
I also have every single Ohio State vs UM ticket since 1922 except for 1923 and 1925, I'll upload some of my favorites later today when I get home from work.
Thank you Hove!
Thanks for the help everyone, I genuinely appreciate it. Knowing our fan base, I know we can at least try and locate the 1923 OWU program. I'm willing to trade or just straight up pay for the programs.
My friend has really helped me with my collection so I would love to return the favor for him!
I should mention that the attendance for the 1926 game was insanely low- just 5,000! It would be almost a miracle if one was still floating around
Tough game but thankfully this was the final year they would crown a National Champion before post-season bowl games were played. Or else, we'd be down a National Title!
Definitely the 1969 OSU vs UM game. That whole ordeal put UM back on the map. Who knows what could have happened if we had won that game. Since Woody had taken over in 1951, he went 12-6 against Michigan prior to the 1969 game. He would lose 3 straight games to UM to end his career... We also entered a very dark time as far as bowl games went. Lost 4 of 5 Rose Bowl games between 1971-1976. The Rose Bowl game we won in 1974 would have crowned us National Champions except for the fact that we tied Michigan to end the regular season
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!
