I'm getting ready to buy airline tickets for my trip to the game (with my two sons). Is the game likely to start at noon? If so, is it at all likely that I can be at the airport for a late evening flight? Thanks, guys.
Does this mean Nebraska has become more beatable or Ohio gain a little respect?
Brian's TWIS will not be skimpy on suffering that's for sure.
Take it all in here. Remember to sip it, savour it, like a fine wine. May it last forever and ever and ever.
The last two games of the season are home games, and they could get a ton of publicity. Any chance they could be night games? I know it is not important, but it was just something I am curious about. Gotta love night games!
"After his brief stint in the NFL, Fickell fulfilled a childhood dream by joining the Ohio State Buckeyes. He seemed to fit right in and was accepted as a graduate assistant with the Buckeyes in 1999 under his former coach, John Cooper. In 2000, Fickell was hired by the University of Akron as the Defensive Line Coach. After two seasons with the Zips, he returned to Ohio State once again in 2002, this time as the Special Teams coordinator under second-year head coach, Jim Tressel. In 2004, Fickell took over as the Linebackers coach, adding the title Co-Defensive coordinator to his responsibilities in 2005. In 2010, He was named Assistant Coach of the Year by the AFCA, joining a list of Buckeyes coaches to be recognized by the association that also includes Carroll Widdoes, Woody Hayes, Earle Bruce and Jim Tressel.
Fickell was initially promoted to the position of assistant head coach and was to serve as the interim head coach during Jim Tressel's five game suspension to open the 2011 season. However, on May 30, 2011, Tressel resigned amid an NCAA investigation and Fickell was appointed to the position of head coach. Luke Fickell is the worst football coach in OSU history."
We were at the game tonight and decided to hang out after to watch the players come out. Normally, they head to the bus but tonight was like a giant family reunion. Many of the players had family there, and spent time talking to fans, too. My husband told me David Molk gave him the evil eye, but I sort of think he gives everyone the evil eye, myself included when I said "Good game" to him. When the players came out, they each grabbed a big foil pan off a table, which was dinner. Taylor Lewan's dad (who is as tall as his son), threatened to eat Taylor's dinner if he didn't hurry up. Also, Taylor's elbow was wrapped with ice - hope it's ok. Denard came out last, with security guys around him, and the state police behind him - rock star treatment.
It was great fun to see everyone hanging out. Would have loved to know what they got for dinner.
