Personally knowing a member on the athletics staff, he gets two free tickets to every home football, and home men's basketball game. Imagining this is true for all members of the staff, I can see how the comp'd tickets and add up pretty quickly..
They haven't played anywhere nearly as small for at least the last 35 years. They played at Boston College in the early 90's, who's capacity is around 45k. And Syracuse's Carrier Dome is around 50k, which matches well with Minn, Northwestern, Maryland, Rutgers...
I believe I read somewhere that the injury was his meniscus. I'm not trying to prove a point about anything, just adding some info to the conversation.
I could be wrong here, but I think if Minnesota wins out, they will be B1GW champs. I could see them having a new-found energy after that curb stomping of Iowa. They may put up more of a fight than any of us wish to see. However, I'd say there's a good chance of them running out of steam by the 2nd half and by then the offense will have found it's rhythm and puts up some points.
Or, they aren't very good at all. Their only other dominating win this year was against Michigan, and we all know what a shit-stain they are this year. Close calls vs Northwestern and Purdue? Maybe they got lucky against over-paid Ferentz.
Looks like our sites can't get away from the MSU game either. Definitely a trap
Dammit Marcotte, I could've went with either 221 or 338, and was planning 221. Now it looks like I'm going with 338. ITS GOING TO BE A PASSING FREAKSHOW IN THE SNOW.
I agree. I'd like to see an SEC team make it to the playoff, and play Oregon or OSU and get their asses handed to them in the play-in game. This would end up being attributed to 'a down year' or whatever kind of bs SEC fanboys would call it, but it would be great tv to watch the top SEC team get demolished in prime time.
Its not rude when someone is being called out for made-up information.
Someone needs to create a chart on how much each conference is repped on Gameday. I don't watch that mess of a show, so I'm not capable of doing it. Out of the P5, I could imagine it being 40% SEC, 20% the rest. I do wonder though, how much of that would have to do with SEC being ranked in the top 5, recruiting rankings, etc, etc..
I have always been a big fan of playing a home game against a MAC team, or even Youngstown State, keeping north of a half mil in our state, and helping out the little guys in the process. What bothers me is that there are, what 6? 7? MAC schools in Ohio and still OSU brings in Buffalo and a directional Michigan team from time to time. I wouldn't think it'd be too hard to keep it in the state. But now, it'll be even harder to keep it going with such an emphasis on SoS.
I still laugh at the thought of Ash leaving Arkansas and Bert for a pay cut. Its a good feeling knowing this man came to OSU because he knows he'll win here.
So, 10tv reported that the AP reported about a story on the Dispatch, who is owned by 10tv. Makes sense, right?
This was my thought exactly.
Most likely sitting in a window, reading Global Journalist while drinking a long island iced tea.
I'm very curious to see what all the critics are going to say after the game. If OSU were to win by 2+ touchdowns, how overrated will NU be? If it's a shootout, and OSU only wins by <7 points, how overrated will OSU be, especially after the WISC game being much closer than it should have been. If the score goes into the 30's or more for both teams, is OSU's defense going to be ridiculed? I do hope for a lot of rain on Sat. I want it to be a downpour, and we just pound the ball down NU's throat.
He sang a verse of his favorite song:
"Little black submarines
Put me back on the line
Told my girl I'd be back
This is wrecking my mind."
And beating Arkansas, even though it didn't "technically" happen. Arkansas is no Alabama, but it's something to consider.
...which is when Corey Brown and Chris Fields will have the opportunity for home runs.
I never would have thought to see Fields lumped in with Brown as a home run hitter. The spring game was a shock, but I'm glad to see he's stepped up and become another option for the offense.
This has nothing to do with anything, but I thought it was cool.

I'm just as confused as to why Iowa would be a choice at all. I'd see Minny making it before Iowa this year.
