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
I really like that list. I would possibly add Tyvis Powell to it as well
Look at the bright side, at least the off-season is almost over! Hopefully they learned their lesson and moved on and this will also allow for some of the younger guys to step up and make big plays in primetime.
So thankfully I got a better job offer and I started working in Columbus a few weeks ago.
Sorry though for the delay in my response. I appreciate everyone's help!
I live a few houses down at 202 Frambes. News reporters have been stopping by all day to get any info they can. It has been insane.That said, we have had problems with that house before where the killer lived.
But here is what happened:
Supposedly earlier in the night, a kid that lived on 178 Frambes was jumped and beaten badly after an altercation at the bar. So the killer went out and looked for the group that matched the description of people who jumped his roommate. He attacked the victim and cut him across the neck because he thought it was him. Pretty crazy stuff. Alcohol was definitely involved with this but I still don't know how the kid thought that stabbing someone was reasonable justification for his friend getting jumped.
I believe that says Coach Ash
Last night was my fifth and final time of my college career. Some crazy stories each time... For example I fractured my foot last night. I'm going to miss it and Ohio State.
People can harp on these kids for not making up their mind and I understand where they are coming from, but these are just 17 year old kids making a huge life decision.
Wish him nothing but the best and hope he has no second thoughts once his LOI is sent in. Has to be a crazy process with all the fans, media, family, and coaches telling you where to go
Fifth year senior who stuck with the program despite not seeing too much playing time and flipping to the offensive side of the ball where he is more than likely going to start. Going to be a great story
We want to take 2 TE's according to Birm
I was walking from my house on 12th to the RPAC earlier and there are tons of recruits riding in these Buckeye themed golf carts. I've never seen anything like this on campus before, it's actually hilarious. Also ran into Torrance at the RPAC, seemed to really be enjoying his visit.
I'm heading over to the stadium when I get off work at Fisher so I'll try to take some pics and videos for those who can't attend.
