Exactly. It’s why I think they keep us at 1 just to avoid a Clemson v LSU final. The only reason I think we could get shafted is OSu travels well so Arizona would do well w OSU playing there and the impact to local economy + selling out the stadium is a big deal

I thought it was 50/50 but then remembered ESPN is biased to SEC and that gave them the 3%. After all the teams in that conference have the best quality losses. 

Comment 08 Dec 2019

I’m at 53% we end up as #2 seed. Although the OSU v OU Storyline sells ads and let the two southern teams battle it out in the desert. The worst thing would be if the semi final had higher ratings(eyeballs) than the final and that’s a risk if you put OSU v Clemson as the semifinal. If we lose you end up w Clemson v LSU which won’t excite large chunks of the country. They hedge their bet by putting the two southern markets together in the first round. Gotta remember this is an entertainment business at the end of the day

If you want a hotel on the cheap, check out Lunatix.com - they didn't sell their allotment of Wisc reservations so for $25 you can get a room for $275/night downtown. I'd act quick tho as they are gonna move fast as people make their plans. https://lunatix.com/ncaaf/ohio-state-buckeyes/big-ten-championship-hotel-room-2019 As far as buying tickets, with Wisc going, ticket prices are going to plummet, you can get in lower level for face or below if you wait until a few days before

With wisky going ticket prices are going to plummet. Wait till day before or so and you’ll get an amazing deal on great seats. 

Comment 30 Nov 2019

So I scalp 24 tickets to this game every year as I’ve bought since the first big10champ game and they renew each year. If wisc wins; wait until day before or day of and you’ll get amazing seats at or below face (even inclu stub hub fees) however if minny wins, bite the bullet and buy tickets ASAP as the prices will only go up and there won’t be much of a resale market. You can find tickets day of at the stadium but if you’re worried about fakes buy from stubhub or one of the other many ticket sites.

Check out lunatix.com - I use that market to buy tickets each year. Once the wisky v Minnesota game looks locked up buy the options for that team and then you can pick your section and seats. They still have hotel rooms too for those teams. I buy the options every year when they first come out and are cheap. Have them for the playoffs, championship and hotel in New Orleans if we make it that far

Wait, you mean Urban Meyer, TV personality who just happens to be hosting the pregame show whose ratings depend on it being a hyped up game, the pre-game show that will be airing directly before this game? That Urban Meyer? No way they are trying to talk up the teams so that it gets better ratings and viewership numbers as they compete with that other gameday program. No way would the talking heads do anything like that to try and get ratings up and maximize viewership numbers. That just makes no sense why anyone would do such a thing. You're right, its all about the quality losses, because scUM lost to PSU and Wisky clearly they are the better team, b.c those other teams don't have quality losses like scUM does. 

Comment 25 Nov 2019

Seriously, this is how it used to be. OSU and Michigan are the best teams in the Big 10

If that is the case, then why did they lose to BOTH PSU and Wisky? That is such a xIchigan statement - we're clearly one of the best two teams if you ignore the fact that we lost to those other teams. If you were one of the two best teams you wouldn't be sitting with two losses to two other Big10 teams...like come on man. I get it you're a homer but at least make a reasonable statement. 

Comment 15 Nov 2019

Why wouldn’t you? I travel every year and it’s only “locked in” if they make it, otherwise you’re only out $37. Clearly you don’t travel to bowl games and know how much the hotels gouge you.
