Luckily most people at the game couldn't see it cause it was on the sideline. The collective "ZOOOOOOMG AHHHHH" from all the hotel rooms when everyone turned on the highlights is what I'll remember most about that play. I am still amazed he came back from that.

check your sources before throwing around phrases like "no production, none expected" and realize interior linemen are used to absorb double teams and take up space so others can make tackles. Geesh.

Ohio State Overview: Michael Hill is one of six fifth-year seniors (or graduate students) on the roster ... he is one of the veterans along the defensive front, with 34 appearances and 14 starts ... he enters the 2017 season with 36 career tackles and 4.5 tackles-for-loss … he is majoring in sport industry.

Notable: Hill is the most experienced interior lineman on the squad in terms of games played and starts ... he had played in all 26 games the past two seasons.

And they should get privileges. Hell, if I threw wads of dough at them I'd want some access as well. It's a bad look and I don't like it when it's representing OSU, at something like media days.

I find the "your post is bad and you should feel bad" responses ridiculous when >50% would be throwing snark and shade if this was a picture of Bama, Auburn, LSU, UM, etc..

And seeing Gene Smith's picture now raises the possibility that it was just a meet n greet before they even got on the plane, but because of the original picture posted there is an assumption (on my part) the boosters are flying with them when that could 100% not be the case. This goes along with my argument that they shouldn't be in the pictures and I do not like that they were there.

If they took separate pictures and Meyer sent out one like Gene did I wouldn't be sitting here on a Monday arguing with fellow buckeye fans, some of which have been on this site longer than I have, and dying on a really stupid ant hill.

"Do not like" does not equate to "They should not be". That is something you created in your mind and I think it's high time you spare me this moral superiority and feigned outrage over my original statement which, combined with my other responses still rings true: I don't like that boosters are on that flight and it looks sketchy AF.

Guess what would have remedied this whole thing - no freakin' pictures with the boosters. 

Comment 24 Jul 2017

And, sigh, again, my point is that it just gives a bad look. Have a photo with Smith, Meyer, et. all. No need to throw out the ones with the boosters.

Just because I know how the freakin' sausage is made doesn't mean I need to see the behind the scene pictures.

If this is the tiniest of ant hills to die on, so be it.

Did you actually read anything I wrote or just hit the "jump to conclusions and reply" button?

I neither said they need to stop doing it or that no other program does it.

my literal argument - Which you just replied to - is to keep only current employees and athletes in official business/photos. Having Meyer's twitter account throw out photos with boosters makes it look sketch (and because you, or someone else will reply I'll say again - Yes I know everyone does it, yes this is a small thing to gripe about).

Comment 24 Jul 2017

I never really said they should not be allowed on the trip and that they should be banned. I said it looks sketchy  when it's 3 boosters to 3 players plus Meyer and Smith. I am not naive to think boosters are not on flights or that it's not a common occurrence at any university. 

My opinion is they are going to B1G media days and the photo should just be of those who are actually representing the university to the press. Take all the photos with boosters you want but only a picture showing the "student - athletes" and employees should have been released by Meyer.

Yes, I am aware that in the grand scheme of things this Is the smallest of nits to pick but it's all I got.

Comment 24 Jul 2017

And your point/argument is what exactly....that I shouldn't think it's sketchy AF every year because they do it every year?

There are many, maaaaaany ways to get boosters involved with the team - I just happen to think a private jet to big 10 media days where the ratio of player to booster is 1:1 is sketch.

Proving once again that women are smarter than men. Sigh.

Seat Geek you can find some decent prices still. I would NOT stay in Omaha and drive over game day. You will end up parking closer to Omaha than the stadium. There are a TON of hotels within walking distance and numerous others that are a reasonable driving distance away. Parking with be the toughest. 

Whichever you decide to do I would suggest booking a room now. The prices are already really really high. Remember - the Stadium becomes the 3rd largest city in the state on game days and it's had 348 or so straight sell outs. It's all there is.

I hate the cocaine whites. I think they look like stormtroopers and you can't help but look at the crotchal area cause it has extra layers.

I got married on a game day.

I like everything about what Clemson is doing.
