The Schott is not a a fun place for visiting fans to come watch their team play. I saw Ohio State play MSU three years ago and they were in those State fans faces from start to finish. I actually felt bad for them. (Tells you how bad it will be.) If you are going expect the usual and typical songs and cheers from the Bucknut crowd. I will warn you that a Michigan win although awesome and gut punching to tOSU would be it's asking to get beaten up somewhere in that arena. One of the many reasons why I am not going down there. I've already had my car messed with on that campus before and I am NOT going through that again. If you are going though hopefully all goes well and you come back home with no issues. To give you a heads up I was reading the slime on Bucknuts and like most intelligent posts one of its users seems to have no issue with beating up one of our fans. I think it said "I swear to fuck, any scUM fan after that game better watch his fucking back if I see em." Perfect example of Ohio logic. So with that said anybody coming to Eastern Germany this Sunday?
Anybody Here Making the Trip to Columbus Tomorrow?
I would go, but I cant risk my IQ dropping before I take the ACT. For all those that do, god bless and cover your liscense plates.
My aunt teaches at tOSU and always has me back right up against the garage door when I visit, so my plate is hidden. The one time she had a guest who didn't, their car was vandalized. She lives in random suburban Columbus, not the student ghetto, and it still happens. That city has issues.
That way, but it looks like someone from that area headed this way for the weekend. We had a surprise visitor in...
The glen like DT?
Sorry iPhone problems. Are you speaking of the Glenville DT, or is it someone else?
I recommend hanging out in the Arena District afterward. It's far enough from campus that it won't be as aggressive but still in the city. I'll probably be down that way watching the game as well.
Just like football and hockey, Michigan will win.
Just watch out for them crazy driver types on the roadways. It's true what they say about Columbus drivers, even if some of the fans are mentally stable and nonviolent.
when I hit the Dan Ryan and am able to deal with sane drivers compared to the unpredictable ones here in cbus. And heaven help if there is any precipitation arriving...then everyone will either be panicking and driving 85 or freezing up and driving 20 mph in the fast lane as they all swarm the local Krogers to empty the shelves of french toast ingredients (wife's joke - they all have to run and buy eggs, milk, and bread at the threat of a storm).
I cant believe they are calling their new head football coach, UM, scUM already. I know he has taken some verbals from some questionable players regarding academics and behavior as of late, but already? I thought they would give ole Urban more of a chance. :)
I live in Pickerington...but yes, I will be going to the game.
Do you hire anyone for snow removal there?
Sometimes. But they usually quit before they're finished.
I'm going, but my parents have seasons tix to all tOSU sports - I've had idiots say things to me even when I'm walking with my folks, who are head-to-toe in scarlet and gray and are obviously in their 70s...
are headed down. Still need a pair of tickets if anyone here has extra.
And swore I would never go back after dealing with that crowd. Lasted all of two years, but the treatment there in 2002 put Columbus on my personal "no fly" list.
I live in tht dreaded place and me and my ohio friend are goin to the game so tonight im cleaning my bullet proof vest and i should be good to go
As a Michigan fan living in columbus for the last ten years it has been rough to say the least. But, today as I was walking into Target w/my Michigan sweatshirt on a guy said "go blue"! And while that may not seem like much, it is a huge improvement over what I hear most days when I don my maize and blue! That being said, I will be supporting Michigan tomorrow from a seat within the Schott hoping we can find a way to pull it out...GO BLUE!!!!!
^^^ The thing with Columbus is there are a LOT of Michigan fans there. They often keep it on the down-low out of an understandable desire to not be lynched, but there are a lot more than the Ohio Shtate conformity police would have you believe. You'd be surprised by the amount of people who give you a grin and a 'Go Blue' when you walk around town with a Michigan shirt.
I would even go so far as to say that at least a quarter of Columbus' M fans grow to like Michigan because of the blindly sheepish way the rest of the town is expected to like East Dayton Vocational Prep College.
Been to the Schott three times for Michigan game and have never had an issue. Just mind your own business.
Carry a shank, take out the biggest moron who comes at you.. No big deal.. problem solved. Seriously though ive been there for football and basketball before with a good friend who is a huge bucknut and have obviously heard the obligatory fuck you's etc. Usually from a dad with two small children.. class at its finest! While not enjoyable, behind enemy lines never is!
Went to Columbus over the summer, staying in a hotel down there for a baseball tournament, woke up the next day with my buddies car vandalized with no Michigan stickers or anything, just the license plate
I'm a Michigan fan and live near Columbus. While there are the stories of extreme problems with UM fans, I think a lot of people exaggerate the problem. As was said before, mind your own business, and you're going to be fine. Now on to the second half. I hope we can pull this game out.
