That jump coincides with increased awareness and significantly increased testing.  Many of those thousand had it last week and didn't know it.  More than 1,000 people have it now....and many don't know it, because the symptoms are mild and slow to appear.

We have our flights and hotel booked as well.  Unfortunately game tickets are going to be a problem.  My contact in the President's Club said his ticket application did not include the option to request Oregon tickets.  And the Oregon ticket site had the following:

June 10th - Single game, non-conference, home tickets on sale online to the general public at 6pm. Subject to availability, excludes Ohio State.

I have collected since I was 9 years old...started with 1985 Topps.  I am still an active collector, much to my wife's chagrin.  Still love going to shows and shops, although those are both much less common than they were 20 years ago.  So far my two boys have shown very little interest it the hobby.

If you have any nice Ken Griffey, Jr stuff in your collection to unload, let me know  :)

We have a Scottish Terrier....named him Griffin.  It works on two levels, the OSU angle to honor Archie and the fact that it is sort of a Scottish name.

Comment 07 Jan 2015

Yeah, but I think I read ya....that some reason is that his name is Elliott, not Jackson.

Zeke is a true sophomore...he will be back next season.  And he will dominate!

Yeah, Chicago is great....especially if you love getting murdered.

When looking at that 26,000 number you need to keep in mind that students get in free, as do kids 6 and under.  I would expect at least 10K students to show up, and probably another 5K of kids that get in free (I will be bringing my 2).  I'm predicting 60,000 plus will be there on Saturday.

Students get in free....as do kids 6 and under.  Parking in also free.  So my family of 4 is going for $24...not a bad deal at all for a sneak peek at next year's version of the Buckeyes.

He isn't comparing it to PSU...   He is referencing the fact that Gibbons gagged several field goals in the PSU game, which led to scUM losing.  Had he not been playing, perhaps they would have won.

You not being able to explain why OSU kept him is a YOU problem.  You, like many others, base your opinions solely on these superfluous issues.  Gee's accomplishment as President at OSU have been tremendous on virtually every front.  He has greatly improved OSU's academic standing, raised a ton of money, improved facilities, led the long overdue shift to semesters, forged many beneficial partnerships, and so much more.  So he is a top performer in all areas that are important for a university president...that is why OSU kept him.

The fact that he isn't an "expert" on sports and he makes frequent, sometimes off color, remarks while trying to get a laugh doesn't outweigh his accomplishments.  People who give too much weight to athletics, and who are far too concerned about outsiders taking shots at OSU are the only ones that fail to see Gee for the blessing he is/was to OSU. 

As an OSU grad, and someone who has met the man a few times, I have no problem saying that Gordon Gee was the best thing to happen to Ohio State in the last 100 years.  Where the university is now, versus where it was before Gordon Gee entered the picture is nothing short of amazing.
