I have had a couple different sets of superstitions throughout my young OSU fandom.When I was in college (08-12) while attending tOSU on gamedays. I always had to have my phone in one pocket, gum and keys in another. I had to be up and out of the dorm/apartment so many hours before kickoff. I had to be in my seat for "Hell's Bell's and the Hive" two things Tress did for pre-game. Oh, and I always stood outside of St.John Arena to watch the team walk in to Skull Session.
Now when I was in middle school through high school my best friend and I had a tradition of him spending the night at my place the Friday night before The Game. We'd do childish middle school stuff like staying up late and IM'ing all the little hotties we went to school with hahahaha. We'd get up the next day and my mom would have Donatoes Pizza waiting. We missed two games from 7th through 12th grade, one of which was the 2003 "100th Meeting" which we lost and I think our Senior year but luckily we won that game. I still blame him for that loss in 2003.
Warming up Lauderdale and Manson's seats and occasional garbage/foul trouble time. Besides that it was a waste of a scholarship. Beside Willy B that whole class was stinky
If we're talking Koufos, we cannot forget about the other one-hit wonder Byron "BJ" Mullens. I think he's in Europe somewhere maybe China.
He now show some respect that man on the left is an "ESPN Hall of Fame Man". He is now in the hallowed halls of Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, and Stone Cold Steve Austin but for a different network.
"INSERT SARCASM" I really dislike those two TRUE attention lady's of the night"
The camera points to Braxton and he's on the main floor with the other graduates, but he's not even wearing his cap (obviously wants to be noticed). It was sad and the President even made a subtle remark as for him to put his cap on when he said "nice haircut, Braxton." He pretty much spends the rest of the time eating up attention from the graduates in attendance.
I too am a graduate of tOSU. I graduated in 2012 in what felt like 100 degrees of heat inside The Shoe. NOT ONCE did Dr. Gee or anyone for that matter tell the co-eds to put their gowns back because it was hot as HE-double hockey sticks, or that we weren't allowed to leave our seats to use the bathroom or go under A-deck to attempt to cool off. Braxton has been pretty humble every time the media has talked to him in his four years here. I can think of one quarterback that was the starter while I attended OSU and he was far from it.
I like this. This can only help Columbus' chances on eventually hosting a Men's Final Four. The city already hosts Round 2/3 games for the men's and had done the same for the women's tourney as well. If the City/OSU/Nationwide Arena can put on a great show we could possibly get a men's one soon. Because if you look at the other host cities in the running to host the 2018 Final Four most have also held men's final fours. Congrats to Cbus on receiving this great money maker for the city.
Welp it looks like Dave Brandon failed to deliver a winning football coach in 40 games or less. Does this mean my pizza I ordered for lunch is now free?
I too thought about this one Maybe due to the fact that it is pretty recent in my memory, but also that was the game that he honored his late friend that passed away earlier that week. He played lights out that game and that pick-6 was the KO punch on his amazing night and the road to 12-0.
I knew he was a big supporter of UofM, and that they looked at him for baseball. I swear I've seen a Jeter baseball card where he was in a UofM uniform?? Maybe I've been drinking too much Kol-Aid
I changed it just for you JT. After re-reading it it did make it sound like he struck out. My bad.
Add that and the fact that the feather is "golden", and KSU are the Golden Flashes.
30 - 27 Buckeyes
WNCI 97.9 has a fan fest of sorts in the apartment parking lot next door to where Heineygate use to be located. The apartments are called River Watch Towers. Last time that i was up there which was last year Little Bar on N. High Street has what they call "Little Gate". They have the Coors truck set up and a giant TV showing the games. My personal favorite is Out R Inn. They normally have great game day specials and it is probably one of three "old school" bars left on campus. The Varsity Club has something as well but it is always super crowded due to its close proximity to The Shoe. Hope that helps you out with some options.
Vicki Vallencourt says the
Mud Dogs Buckeyes are gonna win 30 to 27. I pray that its not that close I'll throw my hat in the ring at 33 - 17 Buckeyes.
We shall call him Little Ironhead II
I've been to Ann Arbor, Purdue, Illinois, and Indiana. Of those four Indiana was by far the friendliest. Although when my buddies and I were at one of the bars, our bar tender mentioned that IU fans know they are bad at football so they don't take it too seriously. He mentioned that if you were to wear the opposing team colors during basketball season that it could be a different story. We parked over at the stadium and had to walk about a mile to get to the bars and restaurants. Stopped and asked a younger guy working in his garage for directions and he treated us very kindly. I cannot say too much about Purdue and Illinois, because I went there on service projects while a student at OSU. While we got to go to the game they did not let us venture out too far past that campuses rec center/ student union. UofM is what you would expect an away game at a rival would be. Taunts and insults but they still had Dick Rod and life was good.
My goal is to travel to all the B1G schools. This was pre Maryland and Rutgers. I've got 5/14 down, and looking to possibly add number 6 this year.
@Danderson05 I use to work at the ticket office when I was a student at Ohio State. Section 4 AA is the lower "Lower" bowl per se that was added when the Shoe was remodeled. It will be in the North Endzone BELOW where Block-O North is located. This is the section right next to the Ramp and typically where the visiting band sits if they are brought to the game. If you are able to get tickets in the section it is likely the away team is not bringing their band to the game.
As far as good place to sit it depends. There are only 10-rows in this section and seat 1 is always on the right. Which would be closer to the ramp in this case. You will be straight on looking at the field so plays down towards the south stands may be hard to see, but having one of the largest scoreboards/video boards will help with that in being able to see the plays. I hope that helps...I'll check back if you have any other questions.
I had the same thought of an "Ohio Series" when this same issue got brought up last year in March. I had counted all of the D-1 programs. It would be difficult to do because I don't see the MAC wanting to potentially play each other "out-of-conference". Or question if the wins/loses would go against their conference records. But you could do a smaller Six team tourney with UD, CSU, WSU, OSU, UC, and Xavier. Maybe rotate two MAC teams in each year but have them on opposite sides of the bracket, so the chances of playing each other are smaller.
If we're going to go the hologram route, lets have a hologram Nutron Man perched high above the Bell Tower. To get rid of the other three poser bone heads. Bring back an Ohio Stadium Tradition. I miss hearing the Nutron Man Dance song.
In regards to the link to the giant card stunt. For some reason I want to believe Block O did a Stadium O-H-I-O at a game for some reason. I may be wrong in saying that. But it was only A-Deck that participated. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but something was done involving the whole stadium holding something.
