If you have a Buck-ID (or can get your hands on one) and are ok with sitting with the students/getting rowdy/standing a majority of the game then I would check out the Facebook Group "OSU Ticket Booth" a few days before a game. Typically tickets are well under $100 if you want to save a few dollars. Usually A to AA tickets are about $50 a ticket but are north or south end but are still great seats and some even have pairs listed. Best of luck!

The way I view it is that it would be like Urban not giving Nick Bosa a Big Ten Ring or Rose Bowl ring because he left the team

Different circumstances between the two yes but I believe they both had to do whats best for themselves and at the end of the day we all will look at Kelly as a Clemson Tiger and Nick as a Buckeye.

Offseason ends next weekend! Hope Tate starts and knocks off those gators week 1!

Pigram is a liability but outside of that I think this team is overall better than in years past. The game has evolved to run and shoot and we have a solid roster of talent to do so. Sully is a great center and I wish he were out there this year but the offense almost seems to run more smoothly with him as a coach. Now we have to wait almost 2 weeks for them to play again...

I'm curious as to why Kirby Smart hasn't been contacted as he runs a similar pro style offense with a usually solid defense or even Dabo. Riley runs a solid offense but with as poor as their defense has been if I were an NFL GM I would be nervous to hire him (still don't understand the Kliff hire) Day is unproven and I think it will take a few seasons before we know if he would be cut out for an NFL gig.

Can this darn offseason hurry up and be over? I miss fooseball!

Winning your conference should in my opinion get you in the playoff for the chance to compete for a national title (power 5) as opposed to a committee cherry picking which 4 they want in there that "passes the eye test" and changes the criteria every year. I agree though, teams have to beat Clemson and Bama to put a stop to this. Both teams have pretty weak schedules which almost guarantees them a spot in the playoffs. This series (Clemson vs bama) is about as dry as watching the Cavs vs the warriors every year. Unless you have a horse in the race, you are sick of the same old song and dance and the media stroking it all season long

I agree with the off season not generating an exciting buzz. In years past there was that big week 1 matchup (FSU vs BAMA, LSU vs Wisconsin, Oklahoma vs Houston, OSU vs VT, etc) or there was a ton of uncertainty that made it feel like everyone had a shot at the title. This year both Clemson and Bama can lose a game and they are still going to be in the playoffs regardless and Georgia will get a pass because sec hype and Oklahoma will put up a lot of points and give up a lot of points as well and will likely get a pass again. It has a different feel this offseason like everything is already decided except for the final 2 playoff spots (bama and Clemson have a seat at the table/ Tua and Trevor for heisman) but regardless I cannot wait for fooseball to be back!

I'm a browns fan as well and it's a rare treat we aren't on pins and needles this year hoping and praying for a good draft. With that being said, I expect this 1st round to be crazy! I think the Cardinals shock everyone and draft Bosa. Raiders draft Murray. Haskins goes to Giants. Gary ends up slipping but falls to Seattle. Will the Patriots draft a QB? Can't wait! Just to hear football talk again makes me so happy!

I’ll bite..

2011: We enter the season easily in the top 5 but we lost a lot on defense but we return so much on offense we get a pass. We go undefeated but Sparty’s defense gives us fits but we pull out a miracle in the B1G title then play/beat LSU in the Natty and Tressel does the “wahoo” to Les Miles’ face like he did in the press conference after they won in 2007-2008 season. Braxton gets quality reps as the #2 QB as does Carlos as RB #2.

2012: We enter the season barely in the top 10 as we lost a ton of NFL talent. Braxton and Carlos now run the offense with Smooth jazz as QB #2 and Hall/Dunn/Smith getting touches. We have several close calls and fans begin to call our offense predictable because we like to complain even if we are winning lol. We play Nebraska again in the B1G title and Braxton/Carlos go off. We play ND in the Natty and win back to back and destroy the Irish.

2013: We enter the season as #1. Braxton is the #2 Heisman favorite and just behind him is Carlos with Johnny Manziel leading all. Both Derrick Green and Mitch Trubisky are redshirting as Kenny G is still smooth and Jordan Hall/Rod Smith/Dunn are still solid backups. We go 13-1 as we fight off Sparty in the B1G (we hand it off to Hyde or Pryor stiff arms that defender on 4th down). Our defense is finally exposed and Winston beats us by 2 scores. After waiting patiently, Urban takes the USC job.

2014: We enter the season in the top 10. Braxton still ends up hurt similar to Clemson. Cardale/Mitch fight for it but Cardale wins the job with Rod Smith/Dunn/Green fighting for carries. We go 10-3 falling to VT, MSU, and PSU missing the B1G and but we play Tennessee and beat them as consolation (I HATE the vols). Sparty wins the B1G but doesn’t get to playoffs and its 1. Bama 2. Oregon 3. FSU 4. TCU. Bama goes on to win the Natty against Oregon. Tressel retires at seasons end and its an emotional goodbye.

2015: We enter the season outside of the top 10 and Fickell is hired as HC and we bitter fans are bitter we didn’t get Pat Narduzzi. Joe Burrow is now #3 QB behind Mitch and Cardale is back while Green transfers thinking he is better than this and Dunn and Smith are out so we have Weber and LJ Scott competition for the starting job. Both look stellar and Fickell plays the hot hand. We actually give our RB’s carries against MSU and we win by 2 scores. We go undefeated and beat Iowa in the B1G title band the playoff rankings are: 1. Clemson 2. OSU 3. Bama 4. Oklahoma. We take the title crown back against Clemson in a close game and Finebaum is just pleading for more SEC teams in the playoff. Finish 15-0 and Cardale goes pro.

2016: We enter the season top 5. Burrow takes over the job and Mitch transfers at seasons end but we struggle to find consistency and go 10-3 losing to PSU, ttun, and FSU. Playoff rankings go: 1. Bama 2. Clemson 3. Oklahoma 4. PSU. Clemson beats Bama and Finebaum defecates his trousers.

2017: We enter the season inside the top 10 with Burrow taking over and LJ and Weber are back and healthy. We become the hottest team by seasons end but miss playoffs losing a close one to OU and PSU but win the B1G. Playoff rankings: 1. Clemson 2. Georgia 3. USC 4. Bama. USC beats Bama for the Natty and Finebum soils himself again and states USC cheated. We win our rematch against OU and realize how bad their defense is. Weber and Scott both go pro.

2018: We enter the season just outside of the top 5 and angry. Baldwin is Burrow’s backup. Snead and Teague come in fighting for the job. We go undefeated and beat NW in the conference title and the playoff rankings are: 1. Bama 2. Clemson 3. OSU 4. USC. Clemson just shreds our secondary with Lawrence and then beats Alabama. Following the loss, Saban cries and quits and shortly after Finebaum resigns and blames Harvey Updyke for poisoning the trees. 04/01/2019 a major NCAA violation comes in against Bama for the cheating that occurred during Saban’s tenure and they get the death penalty and Greg Schiano accepts the head coaching gig for the 2020 season after the death penalty only for him to realize he wants to step down

2019: ….. If you read all of that, you earned a beer!

We were right there and Sparty went on a tear. It stinks but I loved the heart from this team to close out the game. Wherever we play this post season, I'll be cheering! Side note: Woods is stepping up in a big way these last few games. Good to see as he was really struggling most of 2019

The Bucks are on the bubble and if they expect to make it to the big dance they need to earn a signature victory on the road. I like the way we match up this year more than we did in Matta's last year. It will all boil down to 2 things that have plagued us all year:

  1. Turnovers
  2.  Foul Trouble

We haven't had a big W since December and its a matter of time and I believe it happens Saturday. Let's step on some turtles!

Comment 19 Feb 2019

I think a lot of it has to do with there isn't anything to do before the game right around the stadium. The closest bar is Varsity Club I believe. If they played at say Nationwide it would give fans more to do prior to tip off with all of the bars and restaurants. I hate when I have to pay a ton for parking and still walk 15 mins to get into the VC Arena. If I could get there early and grab a bite and maybe a drink or 2 I think it would be a lot better. I know it likely wont happen but I can dream right? 

I agree tickets are too high right now and something needs to be done but I don't have a fool proof answer yet but just my opinion is if I go to any sporting event I like to make an evening/afternoon of it and not just park, go to the game, and leave.
