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.
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.
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.
