That’s great regarding Hilliard. Hopefully it means we have a feel that he will get approved.

Saunders is listed though. Hopefully he's able to come back as well.

God bless and go Bucks.

Believe I read somewhere on 11W that he has already indicated that he isnt pursuing an additional year at Ohio State.

We can't stop here; this is bat country...

This escapes me every year, but do guys who are Juniors but obviously leaving get honored? ie Young and Okudah?

No they’re not.  To my understanding, Senior day is for players with expired eligibility and/or Juniors/RS Juniors who have graduated or will be graduating in December.

As far as I can remember, it's typically been only seniors who are for sure in their final season who have gone through Senior Day festivities at Ohio State. For example, Dre'Mont Jones and Sam Hubbard weren't honored on Senior Day the last two years (although I know at least Hubbard went through Senior Tackle) even though they were fourth-year juniors who were graduating and planning to leave for the NFL.

I didn't include it in the story, but Jeff Okudah was asked yesterday about whether he could participate in Senior Day, and his response was: "I think the senior day is moreso about the seniors and the work they’ve put in over their time at Ohio State and just sending them off on a high note."

Wow, thank you, Dan.  A very intelligent response from a classy young man.  He gets it.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

Honestly didn't even realize it was their last game in the Shoe. Man the season seems to go faster every year.

There is a theory that time passes more quickly as you get older because each unit of time is a smaller fraction of your total life as you get older. Remember when you were a kid and summer vacation seemed unending? Then when you were in high school and it seemed like it was over before it started? The percentage of your total life to that point that those nine weeks or so represented is vastly different when you're nine years old compared to when you're eighteen years old. So at family gatherings when grandma and grandpa just seem to hang out and watch everything going on around them without engaging a lot it's because the whole thing is moving at warp speed.

TLDR: You are old.

I hope we are up big enough by the 4th that Coach Day can get all of those fine young men on the field for a few plays. 

Thank you all. You are why we are fans. You are why this team is where it is. Take Ohio State with you as you go on in life and you will never be alone.

Feels like yesterday we were getting ready to see the Fighting Kiffins come visit the Shoe. It goes faster every year

It's weird.  For me, that seems like a long time ago... but I also can't believe we're almost at the end of the regular season already!

If the season goes as most us believe or at least hope, this is the first game of the final third of the season.  So it's hard to view this as a last game.  But regardless the outcomes, it is the last home game.

Send these guys out on a high note! 

Beat everyone, in every sport, all the time!!!

Cooper, Hamilton, Landers, Berry. Not a bad DL. Swap Berry with CY and that's alot of talent to replace next year. Hill, Mack, Victor, Alabi, Bowen, Arnette, Fuller, Harrison, McCullough, Jackson, Chuganov. Wow, so many great Buckeyes! Enjoy your last day at the Shoe.

Now, go kick the crap out of Penn State!
