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?

Comment 24 Oct 2014

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

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.

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. 

Comment 30 Jun 2014

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. 

Comment 30 Apr 2014

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.

Comment 20 Mar 2014

I believe the plates are from New Mexico. If you look closely you can see the small Native American symbols that the state uses on different things. Plus the architecture doesn't fit housing here in Ohio. 

Comment 18 Dec 2013

This is pretty genius. Civil banter is what makes college football fun between fans of opposing schools. My only question is, this is the Brutus statue outside of College Traditions on Lane Ave. Why is the sign on Brutus? There is a Woody statue right next to it, did the photo taker move the sign or what? Just throwing it out there. It would been more funny if it was on the Woody one.

This is one of the i*ages fro* the Osa*a Ju*p Night. *any news outlets used this photo, and it was passed via social *edia around OSU in the days following.

Comment 26 Nov 2013

I ju*ped each year back during *y undergrad 2008,2009,2010,2011, wore the same $1 flip-flops I got at Old Navy a few hours before the 2008 j*mp each year. *y fresh*an year the cops/firefighters had to break the ice on the lake before we could ju*p. Yeah it was between below freezing and 5 degrees if I re*e*ber. My favorite tradition that I did right before Christ*as break. Love how the students have co*e together.10tv mentioned that since 1990 when the ju*p started no one has died. Every year that I ju*ped the cops were always laughing and willing to take pictures with us. They cared for our safe but enjoyed seeing the passion and love we as students had for what this week represents. I keep editing *y post because I keep forgetting funny *e*ories of that night. Fresh*an year *y floor Park Hall floor 6, turned the hallway into a giant slip-n-slide. Yeah it didn't last long but still re*e*ber the soap suds and water and kids flying by *y door. Oh *irror Lake Night for you I a* eternally greatful of so*e of *y best *e*ories of college

Fro* *y first plunge back in 2008.

I may be wrong but I thought that pic was from several months ago. Either way still a pretty gnarly pic. We should either play photoshop/caption this with our own versions of Johnny "Cash" Football. It can be like that scene in Talladega Nights where Will Farrell's family is talking about how they like to picture Jesus when they're praying
