Cincinnati game will be the first at the renovated Fifth Third Arena.  Place will be packed and then some.

The offseason is the longest season.

I like this schedule - gotta play some tough opponents early to get better later.

Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!

It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

Fort Wayne is no slouch either. They've beat Indiana the past two years.

Neither is High Point. No joke.

Hey Cancer! This ass kicking is brought to you by the Sultan of the sythe. Give it hell CalPoppy.

I like it.Just enough meat to impress the committee and test the team...but still with enough cupcakes that the team can focus on fundamentals and building some early confidence of a fairly young Buckeye squad. 

Also, are there weirdly early December B1G games this year too? Or was that just a one-year quirk for last year?

The early December Big 10 games are here to stay. Last year it was because the Big 10 tourney was a week early. This year (and for the near future) is because the Big 10 is going from an 18 game league schedule to a 20 game league schedule.

I play, coach stays. He goes, I go.

For the SJA game, I'm really hoping tOSU allows tailgating from Fri AM to Saturday PM. One can dream

Would love to make the Cleveland State game at SJA... SJA once more before I take the dirt nap.

Looking forward to being there for a few of these. As much as I love going to football games, I can take the whole family to a basketball game and not break the bank

I'll be in town for the TTUN game, so I'll have to go to the SJA game vs. Cleveland State. Hopefully they'll have some halftime events to rally the crowd for the next day.

4 quality non-conference games and several cupcakes on the schedule. I wish we could have had at least one more quality opponent at home this year but I understand it given the 20 game conference schedule. I'm also a B1G (pun intended) fan of the 2 conference games in late November and early December.

Yeah, I thought I wouldn't like the B1G games early, but it was fun to have important games early.  Of course winning both games helped make it fun.  At least this year we don't have a compressed schedule after things resume in January, so that should make things better on the back end as well.

Love the return to SJA.  Like most years there is only 1 marquee home game so having a game in SJA will certainly generate interest for at least one of the lesser exciting games.

Now I am looking forward to seeing the B1G schedule released.  Last year getting those 2 Ws in December was huge.  It will be interesting to see who we play and where to start off.

I counted 12 games, I would take 10-2 for sure, as that means we'd have wins over at least 2 of UCLA, Syracuse, UC and Creighton.  I'm not as optimistic about this season as I was about last year since we lost a lot of talent.  If we win 2 of those 4 that will be great, even if we win only 1 of them it won't be all that bad, of course as long as we take care of business with all the others.  Then if we can manage a top half B1G finish I'll be satisfied.  Of course all of this is as of now.  If we start rolling I'll want more :)
