Yeah, the "blue hair" fan reference has been a running joke over many years around OSU football. I too would qualify as a blue hair (or no hair). I am envious of your ability to stand and cheer.
What ? Not allowing blue hairs to attend games ? That is an outrage ! Without blue hairs at games who do you think will yell "down in front" at you !!!! Now get off of my lawn !! (sarcasm)
I am thinking UK, VPI, UVA, WVU, Pitt, Syracuse, or Boston College. Part of me would love to see the Vols or Gamecocks on the sked but I am tied to closely to those schools through family.
Having observed Holtmann's coaching career going back to his Gardner-Webb days I think there is truth in what you say. Holtmann's style or approach seems better suited to disciplined role players than a team blessed with talent. That is my anecdotal opinion, but I still believe Holtmann is an asset to Ohio State University.
Of course in early 1960's British slang a bird with a bush was ---- well you get my drift.
Aside from acclimating and evaluating incoming junior high players, most high school coaches in South Carolina find spring football practice to have little or no impact on the subsequent regular season.
Bill Watterson we need you now!
Are you saying that there are other television viewing options other than the Hallmark Channel ?
I always was a big fan of old 8-3 Earle. In retrospect his accomplishments at Ohio State were mediocre, yet no man had more love and loyalty to his university than Coach Bruce.
If you are in to ginger lounge singers, look up Allison Young on YouTube.
Coach Day will without doubt have the Buckeyes prepped and ready to go. That is assuming the NCAA does hold all conferences to the same rules.
With hindsight, the 60's. The music of course, but the hindsight plays in to not becoming a slave to nicotine.
Good move in principle, but the devil will be in the details.
Really not an unfair statement there being no elite teams in the Big 10 this season. There are many good teams, but no juggernauts. The same can be said for all of college basketball. Check the rankings and parity is the rule rather than the exception. March Madness will be interesting to watch.
South Carolina has spring high school practice. Aside as being a tool for evaluating and acclimating incoming new players, it does little to enhance performance for the fall season. Ohio's problem is not talent, it is one of declining participation.
People will get sick. A small proportion will die. Flu is flu. Uncertainty drives fear and fear drives social agendas.

Trademarks lose the force of law if not consistently defended. As to naming rights, as much as I dislike crass commercialism, the University would be negligent in failing to take advantage of all sources of revenue.
Just be wary when you arrive. Chicago is a todd'lin town you know.
Any chance that Mike Tressel had been the defacto "head coach in waiting"? If so that would explain the timing. Dantonio get his reward (bonus) and Sparty's new head man already in place.
I Am Curious Yellow summer of 69' at the Little Art Theater on North High across from the old Draught House. Waste of time and money.
The idea of four mega cfb conferences is a no brainer for competition and money. Yet it is money, or rather the control of tv money that had kept it from happening. Also I think many of the current P5 would bail for more traditional non playoff conferences. 32 teams in a seperate NCAA division might be the solution for the CFP.
And what is this "porn" you speak of?
For any team, big dick joe would be a fantastic draft choice, but why condemn Ohio's newest favorite son to a career of misery with the Bengals.
Your point is valid from an Ohio State point of view. My comment is predicated on many Clemson fans viewing the 40-35 game as when Dabo and the Tigers knocked on the door of the upper stratosphere of college football. It was a key psychological turning point for their program. The 31-0 desert debacle as you point out NP solidly sealed Clemson 's claim to elite status.
The Orange Bowl loss to Clemson after the 2013 season may have not been the most crushing loss of the decade for the Buckeyes, but it may have been the most damaging. The 40-35 Tiger victory elevated Dabo Swinney's status to being an elite coach and to Clemson becoming an elite program. The rest is history to Ohio State's chagrin.
