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.
Thats aweso*e, guess that's why South Ca*pus gets the nickna*e of the Dirty South/ Rowdy part of ca*pus.
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.
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 only voted Little Bar bc of Little Gate. Huge tv and beer trucks. I would've voted Out-r-Inn. It was my favorite bar on campus while I was there.
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
How Johnny Football probably thought before doing the "so-called" signing. I wonder how p'od Tress and the rest of Tatgate would be, if A&M and the SEC gets off again.
Last Season was deemed "Urban Renewal" this year I deam it "Urban WARFARE". Visiting teams and B1G beware.
I know it is 122 steps from the ground to the top of B-Deck in South Stands. How I know this...well its very boring when you have a noon game against Minnesota your freshman year. And for someone that doesn't like heights, well I wanted to see how high I was. I'm sure climbing the steps to C or D deck would just be worst.
This season has a special place in my heart. Because it was my freshman year at OSU. I remember conversing in a kid on our floors dorm room and watching the Sconny game. We went out after to celebrate like we were on top of the world. That USC and Fiesta Bowl games stung a little. It's a shame that a player with so much talent and hype coming into OSU left it with bigger black eye in my opinion than his hype. And I was a HUGE TP bandwagon rider from NSD till his spring departure a couple years ago.
So let me get this straight. Carlos Hyde is proven that he didn't punch a girl (so we've been told). Has had his last 72+ hrs of his life put on hold. Yet this girl that is accusing him is the one that threw the punch and is not going to get in trouble? Just proves nothing good happens when the lights go out and the lasers and dub beats get pump'n. Glad things are going to be okay. Lets just hope Mr. Roby only has to deal with a 1-2 gamer of time out time.
Da Na Na..Da Na Na
Another DB that I saw missing was good ole 2x..2x All-American #2 Mike Doss. That dude was a stud and chose to come back his senior season, and look what it got him; a diamond studded ring.
Johnny Football is that you? Now it all makes sense why you didn't make it to camp in time. You fell asleep on the toilet.
While Kate is a beautiful women, I cannot look passed the fact she is TTUN born and raised and a TTUN fan.
A group of my buddies and I made the treck to Bloomington last season and had a great time. Sat at Kilroys from 2pm till almost 6. Talking with the bartender. He mentioned that at IU they know they suck at football so everyones friendly. But that all changes come basketball season. One of my bucket list items is to go to every big ten stadium before I die. I've gotten to 5 of the current 12. We're planning on making NU number 6 this season. Really have enjoyed the article and comments. Helps making the trip planning go a lot smoother. Hope to see everyone in Chicago in a few months.
This past year with the Purdue game. We all know how that one went. My gf and I were about 4 rows up from not being in The Shoe at all, while my parents were down in the confides of B Deck. On Purdue's last drive I leaned over and told my gf that my Dad was probably leaving early because that just how he is with things like that similar to Ramzy's old man. I asked her if she wanted to follow the herds of people out as well. Then I stopped myself it was my first time back "home" since graduating the previous June. I wanted to experience Carmen as an alumni. We stayed and enjoyed one of the more exciting finishes at the Shoe with a back-up that I can remember in recent years. Dad and Mom watched the finish from High Street at Little Bar "Little Gate". Then as my gf and I excitedly walked to meet my folks. They had the walk of shame look. They couldnt believe that they missed out on the finish. I still don't let my dad live that down. I only left early for one game in my whole 4 years at OSU and it was JT's
first time reaching 100 wins.
I actually just downloaded the demo yesterday and played it. I really like the more "real" feel it has with players getting fatigued throughout the game. I play "THE GAME", and thought it was cool when TTUN got momentum or during kickoff you could actually hear Seven Nation Army playing, words and all and the crowd react to it. I also lost it when I scored a TD with El Guapo himself and he did the "Eat your Wheaties" motion like the NCAA 14' Cover Boy himself. Overall I think its a great improvement, just cannot wait till the full version comes out to see if they've FINALLY updated the Shoe.
Fun fact one of the guys I worked with last year while at OSU, had a internship with EA to catch sound bites during home games at OSU. So when July comes and you're whooping on Buffalo. OSU students are to thank for the crowd sounds you hear while playing.
I was at this game too, and experienced much of the same things you did BME. Sounds like we may have been apart of the same group. I went out with the Make a Difference Day crew, we were up behind Block O.
On a side note due to the whole Semester situation, Senior Crawl was last night on campus. But don't put it past OSU students to find a way to drink the next few days all the way up to Obama coming to speak at graduation on Sunday. Also Urbz def has a ton of room for activities in that office of his.
This really would make more sense I feel. Besides keeping certain rivalries intact each year this makes sense. I will be sad to see the IlliBuck Trophy be something of once every so many years. But it could be one of those crossover games that is kept each year. Similar to the Purdue- IU game. Just a thought. But the way you broke it down was great.
Things look lined up pretty well heading to Chi-town this week. Although I was really hoping we'd come on like we did at IU Tuesday yesterday, but a W's and W in the B1G this year. Also in Lunardi's latest Bracketology he's moved us from the #3 seed in the West, meaning we'd have to of played in LA potentially against Gonzaga if it got that far; to the #2 seed in D.C. Could result in a rematch with Duke at some point. But we all know Coach K's teams often underplay come Madness Time. Sit down and buckle up folks its going to be a great ride and March season of basketball all around.
Kevin Bacon, Kevin Bacon!
I think when we look at this years team we're trying to much to hope, pray, and wish it was the teams we've had the past 2-3 seasons. Matta and Co. have spoiled us the past few seasons and when this team whos talents are clearly not to the potential of those teams loses we think the worlds going to end. The high preseason ranking fooled us at first and not knowing what we had has got everyone down soon as they struggled against Duke, KU, and the others. This team is still good enough to make a decent run I feel depending on what region we get sent away to play in come March. Just remember EVERYONE is getting beat up this year B1G or not. Its a crazy yaer. Take what talents this team has and embrace it. We're playing in the toughest conference in the NCAA. A first round bye is not out of the question in Chi-town.
