I aim to make it to at least 1 road game each year and make it a venue I haven't been to yet. 

There's something awesome about everyone in the stadium being against you (Which doesn't seem to be the case anymore since #EveryGameIsAHomeGame), especially if you win. But it absolutely sucks losing on the road (See 2010 Wisconsin). 

High risk-reward.

I dislike Quick Cals and don't understand what they're even intended to do. It doesn't get me pumped and they're very difficult to do when drunk (a.k.a. every game). 

I went to the Ohio State vs. xichigan State game in East Lansing in 2006 and watched Troy Smith and Teddy Ginn smash Sparty. I got a t-shirt that said "East Lansing" with the Spartan logo on it. I routinely wore it to [high] school. I feel just awful about this and have burned it since (file under -> 2013 B1G Championship Game).

I caught myself humming the xichigan fight song when I was at The Game in 2013. I punished myself by eating nothing but spinach for a week.

I've worked for both IMG College at tOSU and Learfield Sports at University of Louisville. Social media posts are only a fraction of the tip of the iceberg, my friend. Corporate sponsorship is in every corner of college athletics - A lot of times people just don't notice because they aren't looking for it. 

There's also radio spots/radio drop-ins, in-game promotions, corporate hospitality/tickets, program ads, sponsors of games, distribution materials in suites, in-stadium giveaways and promotional items, on-site activation, mobile marketing campaigns, coaches show sponsors, radio remotes, student section branding... the list goes on.

Smith added Ohio State, at least from an athletic department standpoint, isn't calling Saturday's game against Penn State "Dark Night at the Shoe," even though it's been all over the Internet and in promotional packages.

That's interesting, considering this:
