I believe it is "Shit happens, bum juice".

In the poll era (since 1936), OSU is by far the class of the B1G:
National Titles: OSU 8, UM 3
B1G Titles: OSU 33, UM 27
Head-to-head: OSU 42, UM 36
Major Bowls (New Year's Six): OSU 20-14, UM 10-16

I'll bet Urban is pissed. His two biggest recruiting events of the offseason have been threatened by rain.

They urgently need to add a dome to the Shoe.

Sort of dims the bright lights of this event.  Getting them into the well lit stadium was part the plan IIRC.

Now I don't have decide about attending.

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

I bet nobody would have melted if it rained. Maybe it should have been done in the weather. During the season same rules ?

HS

It was moved inside because it was supposed to thunderstorm, not just rain. And no, this camp is held for the staff to evaluate recruits, not because a couple thousand fans will show up. It's not the same rules as an actual game.

No need to evaluate them in the rain?

One wish on my birthday.  To perform the Neutron Dance in a mostly empty Ohio Stadium, whilst being ignored by high school phenoms with no knowledge of the great Orlas King or The Pointer Sisters.  Maybe even get my picture taken by Andrew Lind. 

Gentlemen, today that dream has been taken from me.  By an angry sky.    

But those are the breaks.  Onward, Buckeyes.

What day is this?

Can't be because I understood what he was saying.  I never understand what the hell Buck68 is talking about. 

Champions.  Undisputed.

If there was an 11W meet up and Buck68 was going to be there, I'd buy an airline ticket and be there no matter what. For real.

The comic insinuation that mine is a Buck68 burner account has lifted my spirits. Thank you, friends.
Also and in retrospect, the change in FNL venue likely saved us from mild sunburn. Crisis averted.

Well if your plan was to run on the field Anthony Schlegel may be waiting on you. 

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

Some things are better done indoors.

There were storms the first year they had FNL and they held it in the stadium.

Sure you don't mean my comments? They can't be easy  to understand at times? Either way this will be more like a camp with out the bells and whistles going on.

TTUN football fans have some things to be excited about - for one, the weather dampening tonight's plans, and two, landing a baseball player today.  

HS

Big deal probably never play a down as a football player. Unless he is elite high school outfielders are a dime a dozen.

Hehe I was being a bit sarcastic.  

HS

doubt we have any commits after this.  I am sure the recruits wanted to participate in front of the fans.  

HS

You would think they'd want media attendance so the recruits can see how much attention something as small as this gets.

HS
Dan Hope's picture

It's worth noting that Ohio State doesn't actually coordinate media access for Friday Night Lights (or other recruiting camps) because NCAA rules prohibit them from doing so. So closing the event to the public but still allowing the media to attend was not an option. And opening the indoor practice facility to the public wouldn't have been a realistic option, either, because there simply isn't enough space in there to have hundreds to thousands of fans surrounding the field.

Nick's picture

Interesting, so any press conferences/practices during the season is open to the public as well?

HS
NorCal Buckeye's picture

Press conference discussing practice or a game of enrollled OSU students is quite different than a recruiting specific event for unsigned HS students.

HS
Nick's picture

Well as we all know, actual games are the largest recruiting events of the year.

Somehow Miami makes it work for home games.

will be closed to the public due to space limitations.

  I bet they will have the lights on and the kids will be bused to the Shoe rain or not with the jumbo in action and music blasting tonight for a look see.

In hindsight, definitely looks like there was no reason to move the events indoors. Hasn't rained all day, beautiful weather right now and not forecast to rain now until at least 10 p.m. (at least according to my weather app). Can understand why Ohio State would be extra cautious though when there's a threat of lightning (like it also was with the spring game).

I understand, sorta, about the weather changing the plans. But sitting in the Niklaus lot trying to explain it to my teary 4 yr old in the backseat that has been looking forward to this all day, that part sucks.

7:50 here and it looks like it’s going to rain cats and dogs. But, I am in Nanjing China, so that might be the reason.
