I was at the Orange Bowl also and I thought it was closer to 70-30%. I think it will be the same or worse out there. Going that far for a game is out of their norm. I'm guessing they have played outside of the south east maybe a hand full of times in the past 20 years.

We should have all realized by now- any win against MSU no matter how ugly is a good win. Especially against a Dantonio coached MSU team. We are their super bowl ever year . 1/2 the team is from Ohio - players and coaches. We will never be able to match that fever, that level of focus that they have for us.

Finally the toughest road schedule in OSU history is over. Thank God.

I was hoping Matta would redshirt one of the incoming frosh. I thought Wesson- add strenght and put him in same class as his brother- that would make for a special senior year for them. As far as redshirting goes in D1 basketball, if we are not going to get one and done players every year (Kansas, Duke, ect) then win with experience and having a 5th year senior every season to add to the team is a good thing. 

  It is either win with a bunch of one and dones or with senior lead teams. Looks like we are going the senior rout so why not redshirt a player each season to help with the experience factor.

Only 4 teams in a D1 college playoff makes no sense.  Yes, it is better than the shams we had previously but far from adequate from a legitimate way to find the best team in major college football.

MLB has 32 teams and 8 get in the playoffs

NFL has 32 and 12 get in the playoffs

D1 basketball has 300 teams? and 64 get in

D1 football has 132? teams and 4 get in!?!?

It is still the most backward sports organiation in the world.

Oklahoma and Nebraska are all time College football powers. I wonder if any team had ever beat them like we have in the same season to the degree the Buckeyes did.

Very classy letter, Danny. Hate to see you go elsewhere. After I saw Cardale struggle last year I had serious reservations that Urban's offense could change for a pro style QB. IMHO Urban liked what Cardale added to the O during the playoff and thought   he could make that a permanent change in his O. We saw how that went. 

Best of luck to Danny!

Please send stu10 to a far away place that we never have to hear from him again.

We cheer for the player and the person. Hilliard is young and will get the Mariotti treatment like  Lattimore did with his hamstrings and comeback stronger and hungrier than ever!

I have been to a good number of away games but the Oklahoma fans were hands down the nicest fans I had ever encountered by a large margin. Knowledgeable and very hospitable. I exchanged numbers with one couple and promised to show them around Buckeye Nation if they make the trip next year. 

  I couldn't tell you how many people came up and shakes my hand and asked how we were doing. Amazing. 

  I was expecting much different- Brian Bosworth like crazy people and I was totally wrong.

I am here in Norman. Ate at Cattleman's yesterday, went to Memorial. Need game day hot spots.

Interesting theory. I would like to see the average eligibility of the 22 starters for NC teams the past 5 years. Anyone have some extra time on their hands?
