You’re right. I don’t know. But I do know that the interest in OSU is huge in our fan base. So much so that we had people watch LSU play football this year to see Joe Burrow play.  To me, I can’t figure out why no one has based a football minor league around college football fan bases. I’d pay money to watch JTB or Braxton or others play on a team stacked of OSU and other Big Ten talent.  AAF? Only if it fits my schedule and if a Buckeye is on the roster.

 to me AAF looked kind of cheap, go with classic uniforms like bama or penn state and pick a locally influenced mascot, pick up players that have a local connection like the OP stated and I might be more interested.

Yep. Cheap Champion Jerseys and not enough "local interest" players. 

I love the idea of Thursday night games! Good one.

 I understand where you’re coming from, but I slightly disagree respectfully.   I I think the AAF had some really good ideas, specifically playing in the dead time in the spring. 

However,  they tried to be like at AAA NFL League. I don’t think that will work. I think the demand and loyalty to college football specifically the players that we all grow to love from our team, plus regional and league loyalties...  create a different “sub“ market. 

 I tuned into the AAF first, to see how the buckeyes were doing. Second, because I like the idea of football in the spring.  The hundreds of college football fan sites plus indicators like the Big Ten network, show us that there is a different demand out there it’s not quite being addressed by one of these newer football leagues.

I watched his tape (pretty good, similar to Matt Baldwin's) and I wondered why we didn't really recruit him hard. I couldn't for the life of me remember who our 2016 QB recruit was...

Dwyane Haskins.

LOL.

Now I know why we didn't recruit Gunnar the first time around.

Redskins, if you're listening...please consider drafting:

Michael Jordan (started as a true frosh at OSU!!! Plays Guard very well, can play center, and big enough to be a tackle if needed in a pinch)

Isaiah Prince (whose from the DMV and would provide good depth while he continues to learn)

Mike Weber (you need depth at the position, AP is old, and Weber is a great blocker for Haskins)

J.Dixon (really turned it on this year, fully healthy after problem knees early. Selfless player. Runs a 4.4)
