My name is Justin. Despite living my whole life in Philadelphia and being surrounded by Nittany Lions, I grew up an Ohio State fan. All it took was a couple of games and I became attached. Now, I never miss an OSU game if its on TV, whether its football, basketball, lax, hockey, etc. I've been accepted into The Ohio State University for Fall 2014 and will be graduating in 2018. I can't wait to be a student at Ohio State and be able to cheer on my Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium.

As a Pennsylvania Buckeye, they are a full-blown rival personally for me. I HATE THEM, possibly even more than ttun. Looking forward to wiping the Happy out of that Valley this weekend.

As a Block O member, it really irks me when I see other students leaving. Going to school in Ohio, we knew there were going to be times the weather is lousy. We only have 4 years at OSU (except for Grad school) and we should be taking advantage of every minute of these football games. $250 for season tickets is NOTHING compared to what we will have to pay when we graduate. I'm always going to stay for Carmen and enjoy the time I have with affordable season tickets.

I too am making the trip to State College. As a freshman at OSU, I don't have a car with me on campus so I'll probably have to find someone to carpool with or take Greyhound. Don't really know what I'll do after the game, if I don't have to ride since there are no hotels and next Greyhound is 5AM. 

Dealing with the fans, I think I'll throw some Philadelphia gear on top of my Buckeye gear until I get to my seat in the OSU section :).

The only team rivaling my hatred for Michigan, gasp, perhaps even more, is Penn State. Can't stand them. You'd hate them too if you lived with those people!

Comment 05 Oct 2014

I'm excited for wrestling too. I'm in Block O, so I think we'll be going to a bunch of those matches. People here are really confident OSU will be #1. With Penn State and Iowa both at home and Big Tens in Columbus, I can see it happening.

As for field hockey, the funny thing is OSU was 3-7 before that game. All 3 of UVA's losses were to Big Ten teams. UVA beat #1 North Carolina earlier this week.

All of Ohio State's games are on TV except the season opener, UMass-Lowell, on BTN Plus. I think having to pay for BTN Plus is ridiculous. Every other game is on the regular network, so who is going to pay $10 for a monthly pass to watch one game online?

Comment 25 Aug 2014

Man do I hate Beth Mowins. She is terrible. What I don't get is how she has a job calling football games and Charissa Thompson, who used to work for BTN, can't get a job calling games.

Comment 21 Aug 2014

Super annoying that we don't get MSU at home in either football or basketball.

That being said, I think we still have a great chance to win the B1G in football with a favorable schedule. I have a feeling the Basketbucks will be up there too. Really like this team.

Comment 30 Mar 2014

Not sad to see Sparty eliminated. I was really split at what I wanted to happen. I do want the Big Ten to be perceived as the best conference. However, I am bitter at MSU for ruining the football season and handing basketball their first loss. I will never root for scUM in anything. If Wisconsin wants to go win it, I'm fine with that. I just couldn't bear to see either state up north team win it, especially after this year. 

Comment 29 Mar 2014

Thank you! I was planning on joining Block O already so I guess it's time to rack up those points!

Comment 29 Mar 2014

Exciting! I especially love it when Philly can help out the Bucks. The one thing that kept me going this year was thinking about the team we will have next year. Now, they're even better!

Comment 29 Mar 2014

Thanks for replying, but that wasn't really my issue. I just need to know is if the University provides any kind of transportation to these games. Like is busing provided and do we need to pay extra?

Comment 29 Mar 2014

I'm not sure the exact date yet because only the 2013 information is posted. I'm assuming the dates for 2014 will be at the same time as 2013. As Freshman, we are the last to buy tickets.

In 2013 it was: 
June 3rd @ 4:00pm – June 5th @ Noon Rank 4 
June 5th @ 4:00pm – June 7th @ Noon Rank 3 
June 10th @ 4:00pm – June 12th @ Noon Rank 2 
June 12th @ 4:00pm – June 14th @ Noon Rank 1 (This would be us)

If 2014 dates are on the same day of the week, we should be able to buy tickets June 11th.
