I don't think blowouts have that much to do with attendance, we've had blowouts for years. Ticket prices is probably the big reason, ever since they started this higher prices for "better" opponents. I haven't got alumni tickets since they changed the way you have to buy them. My job does not allow me to go on the phone or computer and participate in the ticket stampede. By the time I've been able to get to the website, there are only individual seats left. I have heard quite a few people complain they don't go because the PA system is so loud and obnoxious, especially in the South stands. I think it is also a change in culture.

I lived in the top floor (23) of Lincoln in 74-75 and 75-76, there were 12 to a suite throughout, My second year there was only 10 since the RA was in the suite. Many, probably over half of the residents were transfers from branch campuses or other schools, not a lot of freshmen. And as stated above, many freshmen that were there flunked out in Fall and Winter quarters. Probably as many as half of the residents my first year came back the second year. It was a ways from High Street so we rode the campus buses quite a bit to go there. Had a lot of fun there.

The defense is only good in spurts, we give away too many open threes, and are playing very poor defense on driving, Indiana lived at the line today.  Offensively we are playing slow, a lot of standing, and why don't we screen for shooters more.  When Walker and Carton are both in, Walker has to handle the ball.  Carton has to limit the turnovers, it's killing him and the team.  Everyone needs to get back to basics and use the board, missing far too many shots that should have been layups today and the last few games.

This team played fast early in the season, now they plod along with no sense of urgency and no sense of valuing the ball.  It's got to change quickly or it's going to be a bitterly disappointing season.

I remember the McDonalds was the world's largest at the time, I know it seated somewhere around 500-700, and some days you could not find a seat.  I also took a phys ed bowling class at Ohio Union, it actually really improved my bowling.  

I hated West campus, I had to go out there to pick up a freshman level lecture as junior for some reason, I skipped it so much that I had to look at my schedule to see when it was for the final.

Absolutely have to get the turnovers under control.  I expect Carton to have quite a few as a freshman, and also expect him to improve as he gets more experience.  But how can Kaleb be leading the team in turnovers?  To be fair he has a bunch of assists too.  I have a feeling the ball security has been pounded into the team's head this week.

I seems like this season (not just in our games) replays decisions have been outrageous.  Targeting seems to be absolutely arbitrary.

I would have liked to see us step on their throats a couple minutes earlier, but there was no letup.  Kaleb looks like a different player this year, Young is better than I ever thought he would be.  EJ Liddell is really coming on and seems to play bigger than he is.  Face it, I'm pretty happy with everyone on this team.  Freshman are improving every games, and returning players are all showing growth.  Just got to clean up these turnovers, that's what let KY stay in the game.

To be fair, I thought the announcers gave our defense a lot of credit.  I love the effort of this team, and the scoring comes from anyone.  The second half was really good, we settled down and took care of the ball. We looked a little jittery in the first half throwing the ball away so much, otherwise we may have won by 35.

I still think that Byars didn't win the Heisman was because the voters were afraid of another Buckeye running back winning twice.  He was that much better than anyone else.  Unfortunately his was plagued with injuries his Senior season.

Comment 04 Dec 2019

I know our guys will play hard, that has been the benchmark this season.  We'll see how well Kaleb has really improved, in the past he's struggled against good big men, but he can get off the floor a quicker and higher than last year, so hopefully he will show improvement.  If we can keep playing defense like we have so far, we can make it tough for anyone.  I just wish the game were earlier.  GO BUCKS!
