I personally brought 2 nephews (about 28 years old) and their 5 sons (ages from 7 to 10 ), to the Spring Game yesterday. It was the first time for any of them in the Shoe. They were blown away by the experience - two of the boys got to high five Zeke before the game. There is a chance that none of them (though devote Buckeye fans that wear lots of Buckeye gear) would ever attempt to go to a regular season game because of cost.
The group spent very little ( hour and 15 minute drive each way) to have a great Buckeye experience. Ohio State did a great job to keep it exciting especially for the young fans.
