If noon is such a terrible time to play a game, then I wonder why Ohio State scheduled their non-TV games (yes there was such a thing!) for 1:30pm in the 1990's. Closer to noon than 3:30pm. Some of those were Big 10 games.
I remember when the Ohio State games used to be at 1:30pm....which meant they weren't on TV. Amazingly, some of these were Big Ten games too.
Is this meant for another team's forum? None of those are Ohio State's rivals (but Ohio State is 11-3 against them all time.) They play ND in 2022 & 2023.
When there was artificial turf, you could go in and walk around and play on the field. That ended in 1990 when they put in real grass. I do remember the track being open for a couple of hours on weekdays in the early '90's so students could use it, but sadly never took advantage of that.
Ahh, the big scoreboard with the Big Bear Advertisement.I remember going to one game, probably in the late 1990's, when the referee stopped play and asked the scoreboard operator to please set the game clock to (xx:xx) - I don't remember the specific time. The game clock was already set to the correct time before his announcement. There was a pause, then he asked again. This seemed like it went on for a minute or so. Then the official acknowledged his mistake as he was looking at the time of day clock, which is in the dead center of the scoreboard.
Since there was no live video, just an electronic scoreboard, there was a student team that created some pretty cool graphics to flash after big plays or to get everyone revved up for a big 3rd down.
Brutus was how we registered for our classes (via a touchtone phone).
Here is an article from the Lantern about student ticket sales:
I disagree. If we run the table it is 100%.
I found an older image of their alternate uniforms (from the Flintstones for you younger folks):
Current forecast is Sunny with a high of 72 for Saturday. Since we are playing Michigan State, I am surprised snow/rain squalls aren't in the forecast. I'm tempted to drive over to Indiana from Cincinnati to put a bet down on OSU covering this one. I think the score should be similar to last week versus Nebraska.
Currently watching Clemson punt while down 14-7!!
Wow, I would be surprised if Wisconsin was not favored.
I think his NFL career was solid. 164 games 81.4% conversion rate. His XP misses in 2016 were pretty bad (23/29 - 77.8%). Of course it seems like every year the new batch of NFL kickers are kicking longer and more accurately. Jim Breech of the Bengals (1979-1992) was considered pretty good and only converted 71.5% of field goals including on 6 over 50 yards.
Do not besmirch WKRP, good sir! Considering the crap on TV at the time it came out, it's a really good show. If you watch reruns they sometimes aren't as good due to not being able to clear the rights for all of the music.
It seems really odd having two coaches in the same game coaching against their alma mater. I wonder how many times that has happened?
UC is starting two freshman on the OL. There is a lot of optimism from Bearcats fans down here in Cincinnati, but UCLA is not Ohio State. I'm curious to see how our defense holds up against a better opponent than Florida Atlantic. As good and surprising as Cincinnati was last year, they were gashed by USF on the road, 38-13. I'll say Ohio State 31-17.
Sounds like a great hire. Props for the link to the Morrison Warren Jr. article, that was a good read.
I am not interested, but I think this makes sense. I think OSU has been pushing the price points and is seeing demand slacken. When I passed on the alumni single game opportunity last year they sent me multiple reminders. I will likely try to buy day of if I decide to go to a game this year.
I went in 1999. The 1st two games were in Indy in the RCA dome, the St. John game was in Knoxville, TN. (I watched OSU beat Auburn on TV.) Neither were bad drives from Cincinnati. I remember buying tickets for the St. John game the day of through the official website over the internet - that was a mistake. (No Stubhub back then.) All of the Auburn fans had dumped their tickets to the scalpers. Lower level seats were going for cheap! We decided not to upgrade. We drove back that night and got in at 2 am or so.
We will wait until he is signed, sealed, and delivered before telling him we don't refer to it as "the O". I am impressed with what Hartline has done. Also surprised it took so long to remove the interim tag.
I'm jealous! They didn't have any of this when I was in school. Well....wait......My high school grades wouldn't get me into today's Ohio State, and tuition was about $12,000 or so for the full four years. So I guess I'm not as jealous after all. Seriously though I think this is a good idea. Both Day and Holtmann get it.
I like being first. No overtimes in the game ahead of it bumping into coverage of The Game. I also don't want to mess with success. If we were coming off the Cooper years (yes I realize they also started at noon) I would say change everything!
I was there then too! I definitely remember I few cancellations.
