B1G attendance is pretty bi-modal though. You have those 4 at the bottom but OSU, PSU, and Michigan (other than this year) pretty consistenly rate in the top 10-20 nation-wide for attendance (big-ass stadiums help too).
I was at the Sugar Bowl and the section we were seated in was about 70% sitting (lame). somewhere around the 2nd quarter I became convinced that every OSU offensive play that I wasn't standing for was going badly. I insisted in standing for every OSU snap from then out. It really annoyed the extraordinarily polite older couple behind me who were Bama fans but it ended up working out for the best. They didnt need to see the collapse of their team
ouch! dont chest bumb the ladies!
especially with the inclusion of the marching band performances!!!
There's a giant buckeye tree smack in the middle of Penn State's campus. None of the psu students know what it is and I have no idea how it got there but it produces a bumper crop of buckeyes every year
Ive been thinking the same thing ever since the final rankings were announced. There was a quote from an '06 article that I saved (masochist, yes)that keeps coming to mind. something along the lines of "With over a month to prepare, Urban Meyer will be pulling out every trick play, fake punt, screen pass, and unused page of the playbook. Tressel's plan - get Troy Smith to the stadium."
...well, we all know how that game turned out.
unless Michigan plucks Jim Harbaugh from the NFL heavens, Houston will have outhired every school in the Big Ten.
That's just sad.
I did some comparing before buying mine and the "official" Sugar Bowl ticket exchange seems a decent way to go. The cheapest they have right now is $355/$382-ish for upper level endzone or sideline. (P.S. they tack on a 18% fee for the resale tickets, watch out for that)
easy-peasy way to clear this up. Is she indeed pregnant? Because (and I'm not trying to overly criticise her here but) women know that pregnancy is an instant sympathy card and ... if she happens to not be, that comment is all you need IMO that she was clearly trying to stir things up
Barrett and his girlfriend, Alexandria Barrett-Clark, called police
huh? so who actually made the phone call? sounds like there were high tempers and minor aggression on both sides. I'm giving them all the benefit of the doubt for now but I'll be surprised if the media does the same.
For now, I blame whoever it was who watched each thing happen to this team and responded with "well it cant get any worse, can it" each time. No more tempting fate!
Dont even bother reading it, dont give the Lantern the click support for publishing such poorly written trolling. Go read The Fake Lantern instead, far more truth there anyway.
I would be willing to take an 80% of being crippled upon arrival in order to go back in time and replay the ending to that dodgeball game. That's how salty I am about a game that occurred eight years ago, and I'm just an some idiot with a rudimentary understanding of English and a WiFi connection.
So, I wouldn't be surprised if Urban Meyer thinks about those two losses every day of his life. I bet he still gets fired up thinking about every petty mistake he made. And that's before even taking into consideration Urban's track record as an underdog. (*Troy Smith nods wistfully in the distance*)
I also still remember minute of the most devestating loss of my short athletic career. I would give just about anything, including being forced to redo all 4 years of HS, just to re-play that one game. Still makes me angry.
That said, all of this is making me strangely more and more confident in Urban Meyer going into this game.
my only reaction:
UC students really hate games at Paul Brown (which to be fair are a horrible logistical nightmare for any student coming from UC's campus) so i doubt there were as many of them there to begin with
I get it can get cold in late November, but it's also cold for a third of the year in the Midwest, and yet... people still function fine.
tell that to the players during this Saturday's noon matchup at Minny. I guarantee if the weather is anything like the forecast they will be hoping for every ray of sunshine possible
