I've seen the Eiffel Tower and the Roman Coliseum; I've toured Irish castles and African villages; I've walked the steps of Ukrainian monasteries and Guatemalan mountains, but I've never seen anything quite like Ohio Stadium.

I'm not entirely sure what Pantoni's role would be in the NFL. Not that he's not capable, but that seems more like a front office job in the NFL than something on the staff.

I don't think it's sexist at all. It's merely an identifier so that people know what you're referencing. We also use helpful identifiers like "Basketball" Bucks, so we know what sport is being referenced. Even on ESPN they reference their sections as NCAAM and NCAAW so that there is a deliniation. And, by the way, I'm fine calling it the men's basketball team.

The one that bugs me is when the athletes are referred to as a "former" Buckeye. You are never a former Buckeye, just an alumni.

You also trade off a lot of the game experience when you're in the stadium. The broadcast gives you a ton of information about injuries, statistical accomplishments and, most significantly, replays. The stadium crew does a horrendous job giving any kind of meaningful replay on a consistent basis.

I think people's interest for analytics during the game will continue to drive people away. Until there's power for your phone and exemplary wifi, they will continue to struggle with attendance. And that's IF they address all the other issues you guys have mentioned.

Interesting info, but I'd also put this in the "DUH" category. Of course my parents are going to have more discretionary income than my kids. When you've had 40 years to put money away and progress through your career, you should be substantially better off than someone early in their career.

This might as well be a graph of 10K invested in 1970, 10K invested in 1990 and 10K invested in 2010 and how much it's worth now.

You're not wrong that this might impact attendance, but I think it's a little silly for the article to suggest that this discrepancy is wrong or surprising.

Here's what worries me... They will change things up knowing what they need to do to exploit us having seen where UM and PSU had success. We won't change anything because we don't think we need to and don't want to give anything away heading into playoff matchups. I think that makes for a much closer game than last time. I would love to be wrong.
