With Ohio fans worried about their beloved basketball team facing Indiana tomorrow @ home I am wondering how many of Ohio's fans show up for this game tomorrow. At first I was thinking there might be a large number because it's in Ohio but then again there might not be as many as the Indians Organization is expecting. 1. It's on the day of the OSU Indiana bball game and to Ohio State fans this game is vital to them and they will care more about this then some college hockey game. 2. This game has not been advertised here in Columbus EVEN ONCE on cable or public tv. Even Bucknuts isn't talking about this game so that show's you the interest their fans have in their team which is actually pretty sad considering their ranking. 3. Ohio is not and I repeat this NOT A HOCKEY CARING STATE. I will be stunned if even 10,000 Ohio fans show up for this game tomorrow knowing their history of lack of interest in their hockey program. 4. Its on the day of my Packers and Giants game and also the Ravens vs Texans. To put it simple all signs point to this stadium being pretty much all maize and blue. Are there a lot of advertisements going out up in the great state up North or are you guys getting the same attention media wise for it that we have here? I can't imagine Michigan public cable stations aren't promoting this game.
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
