8 pm kickoff for The Game would be epic. It would set a record for TV viewership as a Prime Time national game.

If you play at Ohio State, the answer should always be "A Lot".
Having said that, Corey Smith needs to improve his game for that to happen, but everything he needs to produce "A Lot" seems within reach. He has the talent and ability, he just needs to work on some things. If he does, he could break out big-time.
Great article on Ashtabula St. John's. Definitely worth the read.
Extremely. It is not a true rivalry unless the fans get hype.
I'd say that I agree, except Urban is actually priceless.
We could pay the same amount for another coach, but no amount of money can replace Urban Meyer, an Ohio guy, who used to talk to Woody each time he could when Urban was on Earle's staff. He is a perfect fit, and a legend in his own time.
That was a way, way too long time to wait from 1968 to 2002, especially because we had a shot at a National Title more than once during that time period and didn't get it.
I was born in 1959 so I remember the Super Sophs; that was when I was becoming an Ohio State fan. My parents brought me and my brother into Columbus from Zanesville to shop at Lazarus Downtown on a football Saturday that year (away game) and I remember my dad saying "I bet State lost today" (he was a Duquesne grad and never really developed a lot of love for Ohio State) because everyone seemed so calm and no one was talking about the game. He was mistaken of course.
It really is difficult comparing the two teams because it is really two different eras of college football. Still, the glow hasn't gone away from last year for me yet.
This year's team will take everyone's best shot and have the pressure that goes with defending a championship. We will know soon enough how they stack up, but based on last year I'd have to say that they will rank right up there in OSU history.
I'm ready for The Grind. Better yet, I KNOW the team will be ready for The Grind because I have faith that the coaching staff will have them ready for it.
Oh yes, it is an interesting and fun time to be a Buckeye Football fan, maybe as much as it has ever been since OSU started playing football. For many reasons.
It isn't allowed.
I was listening on the radio and heard Keels comment on it a couple of times, and you could tell it was happening on the radio audio feed.
I am pretty sure I saw it mentioned after the game on 11W. How about it, 11W Historians?
This QB derby is going to keep the rest of the offseason more interesting than normal. No one can disagree that the depth at QB is unprecedented...
The growl is bad enough, but last year they played music when OSU was on offense. It was a
SEC bush league move by Franklin, IMHO.
I thought them playing music on the PA while we were on offense was an advantage for them as well.
I picked the Penn State game. As long as OSU can play loud music whenever Penn State is on offense like they did to OSU at State College last year.
This was private possessions that Pryor and the others traded. In the real world it would have been nobody's business what they did with them, just like it is nobody's business when someone's bowl ring comes up for sale on Ebay or something.
NCAA-World is not the real world though...
No, I was never mad at Pryor.
You got me beat on that one. I've never even seen a blind squirrel.
When they last mattered in football they were the Redskins.
IMHO he's getting off easy. Usually a tow truck comes and takes your vehicle when you park someplace you're not supposed to on the OSU campus.
If you were stuck on a long airline flight, who would you want to be sitting next to you and why? –Dc28
TW: I would want to be next to Michael Jordan. That's my favorite athlete of all-time and I am sure he'd be interesting to talk to.
Michael Jordan? This could happen on every team flight for the next few years..
You may be of the opinion that my argument is weak at best, but at least follow the money - ESPN sells advertising time to derive their income; they are pimping sports. There is a term in TV called "If it bleeds it leads" meaning that the stories about disasters and accidents are what generate viewers and thus money. ESPN can be seen as the Guy in the White Hat riding to the rescue here, not as trying to damage college sports, and they will still make money because this type of story generates a lot of interest, and thus more advertising revenue. Follow the money.
One thing I can say in addition to the above, the UF record is going to be reviewed under Urban's tenure as coach, and there will be an inference there that suggests that he may operate the same way at OSU. ESPN has attacked OSU before. Again, just sayin'...
Since it is ESPN, I am skeptical that there is any motivation other than sensationalism with the only goal being increased ratings and web hits which generate revenue for ESPN.
Where there is smoke there is fire? Well, yes, maybe, but taking a spark and fanning the flames will get a fire of any size you want if you keep at it.
That does not appear to be a photoshop.
Ah man. It has been a long time since I saw Fletch.
At least one or two missed calls that would have made a difference. Should not happen in the NBA Finals.
Making the daily poll as a reader-driven topic is a GREAT idea.
