Him willing to Gray shirt for the team shows his true commitment and dedication to being a Buckeye. And thanks to Chrisman for establishing that relationship.
We can always play one less conference game each year, like the SEC does. Apparently that makes you look stronger in the eyes of the committee. Weaker schedule better chances. (The committee sucks)
Thanks to Thad for all he did for Ohio State and it’s basketball program. He will always be a part of the Buckeye family.
Can’t wait for the season to start; it is going to be a great year.
Tell it lie it is coach. If that doesn’t fire the newbies up then they haven’t fully absorbed what it means to be a Buckeye and the meaning of THE RIVALRY. But I am sure it won’t take them long to get it.
Great insight into how the process works and how much detail and time goes into the process.
Tress might have been old school but he was a good coach who got things going in the right direction for Ohio State.
H U G E! Welcome Clark.
It will be interesting to see how things turn out in recruiting over the next several weeks. There are some really good possibilities. But one also has to have a little concern about any flips that could happen with any of our commits.
I can’t wait to try it out. And all the displays will be awesome. Maybe I should take some of my school up north friends; I wonder if they will offer Xichigan Smash Burgers, or should they be called Smash Xichigan Burgers.
UC can be a problem if we don’t come out strong and keep the pedal to the metal. Not only will Luke be amped up, but his whole team will be. They will want the victory for the prestige and for their coach. But Coach Day has been known to get amped up also.
I would tend to agree with you.
Seems kind of weird in some ways. I wonder what the rest of the story is behind all this; if there is a rest of the story.
I agree 100%. But If they allow it, the money they make can be used to help pay for the free tuition, food, housing and medical expenses. That would welcome them to the real world. You make money so you can pay for the necessities of life.
It is interesting that prices keep going up as we are led to believe that it is due to the cost of operational expenses rising. While that might be true, I was also led to believe that the reason for the contracts with TV’s was the amount of monies made from them. So one would think that with the large cash infusion from TV, that the Athletic Department could cover the increased costs without hammering the faithful Buckeye fans who would like to attend some games, or even have a season ticket. And at the end of each contract for broadcasting, they can up the amount charged to the broadcasting company; they can certainly afford it as they turn around and sell advertising slots. So the tv stations are happy making their big bucks from advertisers; Ohio State is happy making their big bucks from the tv stations, and get a little more on the side by raising the ticket prices to many Buckeye fans who already have tickets or want to buy some. More and more people will start staying home to watch games as time goes on. The average family cannot see spending the kind of dollars required to take the family to see a game, and that doesn’t include the cost to feed them at the game. It might be that games in the future become the rich mans sport as colleges seem to be reaching out to them. Take for example the new box seats being added at the stadium. They aren’t called suites, but they are much like them. I asked the on them out of curiosity, and while I don’t remember the amount, I know it was high; well high for someone like me. So we are losing seating capacity in order to add high end seats for people that want to pay more. I guess you might say the pricing is less than a suite, but more than the Club Seats.
One other comment, I hate the night games only because they take forever due to the ridiculous red hat guy that keeps coming onto the field to annoy all of us.
I feel the same way. But the world has changed necessitating the TSA approach in order to attempt to keep all of us safe. The family went to Kings Island the other day, and they now require you to go through security. It’s a sad, sad world.
He Is a class act, we could certainly use more like him.
That is a little scary.
Hats off to the faculty and coaching staff for what they do to educate these athletes. And to the players who come to Ohio State to become not only great athletes, but educated and prepare for life’s successes whatever that might be. It takes a big commitment from them to apply themselves to learning the plays, practices, game preparation, the game (with travel time to away games), and then still make time for their studies.
Congratulations Alec and the rest of the team who competed at the NCAA Individual Championships.
Absolutely correct and I think we Ate losing a good one.
And that is a very good solution. Otherwise things will get nuts if the NCAA grants all the transfer requests without an extenuating circumstance or circumstances.
Reading the list of the coaches from elite programs who will be attending the draft, is it a bad thing if Coach Day doesn’t attend?
We sure are going to miss Dwayne and wish he would have stayed one more year. He is a fine young man and I wish him all the best.
Haskins deserves it more. But if he can be there for both, great.
