I have been a Buckeye fan since I was a child, and that has been a long time . My clothes closet is full of Buckeye gear and I have a man cave that is the Buckeye Room. I have many pictures and Buckeye items hanging on the walls and sitting at other places including helmets, banners, and odd Buckeye items from different states. I had my pool table re-done in Scarlet and Gray to match the room. The thing that really stands out is the hand painted figures on the wall which include a QB passing the ball to a receiver as well as part of the field. My family has learned to always know the Buckeye Football Schedule so as to not plan any family events for that day. They once learned the hard way that neither Dad or Mom would be in attendance if the Buckeyes were playing. I love our Buckeyes and we do presently have season tickets.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My wife and I have attended many bowl games, including the National Championship game in Arizona and New Orleans, winning most except the two mentioned. So I would have to say one of the best moments was being in Texas to see our Buckeyes win the National Championship. And, needless to say, it is always a best sports moment when we beat TTUN.

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.

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.

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.

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.
