Ticketmaster fees are another added part of the total cost. Service and order processing fees. These fees are not insignificant. Service fee is $10 per ticket and order processing fee is $4. 2 tickets = $24 fees. I believe a part of these fees is paid by Ticketmaster to OSU. Regarding Ticketmaster's order processing fee: their system does not allow you to combine ticket purchases for separate games into one order. Thus, they charge a separate order processing fee for each game. I bought tickets to two games this year, on the same day, and I incurred a separate order fee for each game when the tickets could have been combined into one order.

And that was some kind of hot weather for the UNLV September "nooner" game. Our seats were in C deck in the north endzone and it was so hot we had to leave at halftime. I was fine but my friends could not take the extreme sun and heat. Thanks to OSU for putting out the water stations to keep fans hydrated. But that game should have been moved to the evening due to the extreme heat. Don't know why they can't change start times based on the weather.

Good for Coach Holtmann. He understands that the game has changed with regard to how you have to actively manage and constantly work to upgrade your roster. We may not like losing players to transfer and dealing with roster turnover, but that's just the way it is these days. It's a realistic approach. We shouldn't view it as a negative. Maximizing the makeup of your roster is a necessary and critical component toward improving a team's chances for success. And I think the kids have to realize that it is now a part of the process and that they also will have opportunities to explore what is best for them as well.

Boom, boom, boom! Sueing looks to be the type of player who's going to be a great fit here. Welcome to him! Also, thanks to Coach Holtmann and staff for the upgrades. Keep up the great work guys!

It's what happens when Ben gives the defender "the hand goblin."

My recollection is that I was stunned Griffin had set the mark for 100 yards rushing in consecutive games. Prior to that point in time, it must have been hard to run the ball against defenses, who were stacked on the line of scrimmage to stop the run. We knew Griffin was good, but with the 2 Heisman trophies, his legend grew. Back then, most of the games were not televised. If you didn't have tickets, you listened on the radio. I remember watching some game highlights on the Woody Hayes show. Then shortly thereafter, maybe in the late 70s and early 80s, WOSU showed a mostly full game replay with Paul Warfield along with another announcer whose name I don't remember. I think Jeff Logan worked those replays later on. Being that the coverage was not the same as it is today - really minimal coverage by comparison - you didn't get the same impact as you do now days from the saturated coverage. Another thing that was big back then was the Bob Hope show. We looked forward to seeing which Buckeyes had made All-American status, by being on Bob Hope's show. That was probably as big an honor as you could get back then. And if Bob gave a player a compliment or a remark and there was some interaction between Bob and the player, that was a big thing.

I'm sure that Skladany's 59 yard field goal was kicked off a tee. Hooker's 3 TDs on interception returns in one season, if I remember correctly, he would have had a 4th, but it was called back by penalty.

I'm not going whine. Frankly, I'm good with Baldwin leaving since he doesn't want to be here. What I'm not okay with is the NCAA granting immediate eligibility, in so many of these cases, including with Fields. I was okay with it if a family member was struggling with an illness. Now, with so many granted immediate eligibility, they're just acquiescing to kids who are unhappy. What ever happened to perseverance? How many Buckeye greats were in the same position, but hung in there, and came out the better for it?
