I drove (from Akron, but through Columbus to pick someone up). I used a parking app called Spot Hero, though there are many out there. I paid for my entire stay with no in and out privileges, then used trains, walking, and Uber to get places we wanted to visit. We used an Air-B-N-B (our host turned out to be an OSU grad by the way) in the Gold Coast area which is really nice.

After looking through this thread, I am completely amazed at the number of posters who comment on the substance of the rule, and the call that have obviously never read to understand what the rule says in its entirety

Comment 31 Dec 2019

Why would you assume technique is not being taught?

I wouldn't. That is exactly opposite of what I said. Logical fallacies like these are the death of conversations. 

Comment 31 Dec 2019

Coaches teach technique. I would assume that the team drills proper technique over and over, but apparently it needs more repetition to create better habits.

I saw the Illinois call in real time, and thought it was BS. With that said. I think the onus for Wade's penalty is on Shaun and coaches. Had he done what the Illinois player did, no penalty would have been called. Denzel Ward missed several games his rookie season for the Browns because he led with his head and gave himself a concussion. The rule is there for a reason, and it's a good reason.

I had a coworker (since retired) who used to bring an unopened can of cranberries to our potluck Thanksgiving feast every year. Not once in the time I worked there, did anybody open it.

I honestly don't think LSU is a lock to beat Oklahoma. Oklahoma will score on LSU.

And for what it's worth, QBs that tuck the ball and run have been one of our few achilles heels this year on D. Both Clemson and Oklahoma have those kinds of QBs.

Congrats. Your parents must be so proud.

Barry Sanders? I don't see that at all. I can see the Emmitt Smith comparison. I also have said that JK and Nick Chubb have similar styles.

Interestingly, I think one of the keys to preparing for The Game, is to do things exactly like you do every other game. And this is where Cooper got it wrong...He got it, but let it get too big in the locker room and in public/media. 

Day played it cool, with a good blueprint from the coaches who preceded him.

Herbstreit deserves every bad word he gets from us for his incredible vilification of the program while announcing one of our bowl games during the mid 2000s. He was way out of line, never walked it back, and though his words did not cut as deep, he continued to disparage the program for several years. This is what led to Pryor calling him a fake Buckeye. I have no doubt that Pryor was echoing the sentiment of the atmosphere in the WHAC. 

Comment 24 Nov 2019

Checking the threads this morning, it has become apparent that the proper way to display one's Buckeye Fandom is to confidently shout down anyone who thinks we cannot beat any team by at least thirty, then complain about {pick one:QB, coordinators, HC, play calling} when we statistically dominate a top 10 team while winning by 11.

Comment 23 Nov 2019

One should always remember that there is an inverse relationship between the number of times a fan complains about play calling and the number of games the complainer has ever played.
