I have always been a Buckeye fan but truly became a diehard after attending football camp under Earl Bruce back in the early 80's. My first car was a gray 1980 Cutlass with scarlet interior called the Woodymobile (bench front seat, an entire generation of kids have no idea how great a bench front seat is!). I grew up in Cincinnati (which should actually be part of Kentucky) where there are plenty of Buckeye faithful that are typically overshadowed by hillbillies, catholic school devotees, and cute little bearcat fans with massive inferiority complexes. I now live outside of Hamilton county where you see the Buckeyes flags fly 365 days a year. My favorite Buckeyes moments: a 3-way tie between throwing with Art as a sophmore in high school, watching Cie Grant toss Dorsey to the ground like a rag doll, and yelling like a madman as Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff as I watched from 20 rows up in the 2006 NC game. Worst Buckeye moments: about 30 minutes after the Ted Ginn moment and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

Sorry Navy but I don't think there is a comparison. The vast majority of the extra slots in basketball go to the power five conferences. The automatic bids stayed the same. In football there would be a additional automatic from a power five, and automatic from the little guys, and just two at large bids to the big boys. Not even close to the 8 teams from the B1G last year or the 9 from the ACC in 2018 in March Madness. The only concern would be SEC bias taking both at large spots which could easily be remedied by limiting it to two schools max per conference.

Didn't find any either but I guess others work these forums better than me.

In case anyone reads this, we winged it. Parked for $20 less than 10 minutes from the stadium and got a walk in table at 4:15 at St Elmos. Great steak but priced as you'd expect from a steak house in that niche. My friend that flew in from Montana (San Diego native with no ties to Ohio State) looks at me and said "I've got to try this" and he shouted out an O-H. There was a split second pause of quiet before everyone in the place in unison responded with a crazy loud I-O. Not a big fan of the cheer but damn was that an exception. Walked into Lucas Oil when they opened the gates. What an amazing venue. Buckeye fans outnumbered Wisconsin fans by at least 50-1 in the streets and maybe 10-1 inside. Yet another great day to be a BUCKEYE.
