At least from 2002-2003, ticket prices are relatively the same. I remember tickets being ~$20 per ticket and when I adjusted for inflation it ended up being about the same price students pay today.

Reason #3483 to fire Brandon. He sent out a HC to a national press coverage unprepared and lacking information that you had. This is bad PR. And this lays solely on DB's head for how it was handled. He's a PR machine that left a coach to hang out and dry. Why would another coach ever want to come work for him after this? Reason enough he needs to go

Quick suggestion, any way we can get the music down to a level 8 instead of its current 11 status. The volume level to hear both of you makes it so the music is blaring and often hurtful. Otherwise, love the podcasts!
|1 day 5 hours ago||Over-reacting||
While I'm in the camp of Hoke must go (solely based for on-field performance). I think everyone is over-reacting to this statement:
I believe coach Hoke didn't see the play initially. I believe he didn't purposely leave a concussed player in the game. It's of my opinion that he clearly doesn't pay attention. This, combined with playclock issues, hurry-up, formations, etc. He's just clueless.
The comment that he thought it was a targeting hit can be summed up as a post-hoc reaction to watching the film. I think we need to step back off the podium for at least this comment. As for the others, well, Hoke certainly is digging his own grave and certainly seems to be trying to push blame on others.
Speaking of which, what would we have done if Hoke remained firm today on this stance, "We don't talk about injuries b/c I don't want to" meme. That died today (for good reason). I just can't fathom if he would have been able to leave the press conference with his head still attached to his body if he had tried to use that line today, of all days.

Wow. Some people wanted RR gone and voiced it. But never, and I mean NEVER, was the angst as to the point that we are now at with Brady Hoke. This is blowing my mind. But then again it really shouldn't. The media shenannigans was one thing, but to actually see it first-hand that he has absolutely no idea what's going on is beyond ridiculous.

What about those rumors about Gardner having nerve-type damage in his foot that is preventing him from doing a full progression in footwork after a pass. If, and that's a big if, that's the case, then an uninjured Shane would be the best route. But is this true? Who knows. And with the Fort in full lockdown, would we even hear about it till after the season?

Go here to get your answer. It was a topic that was redundant from another thread. Don't take it personally.

Despite having "good intention", I'm not cool with a request for someone to be fired. If anything, you can say what you don't like and what you'd prefer... But to ask a guy to get the axe is too far (even if it ultimately is best)

Elaydin, so this is interesting. You were right about the login... in a way. But there also was a glitch with the app saying you were 'logged in' when one actually was not. I think I found your email at this website http://elaydin.wordpress.com/tag/mgoblog/ Will send you an explanation there.

Feel free to repost it if you want a more cohesive post. Or if you can, just send it in email to the author of the app (if you have it). I just want him to be aware of the issue.

While I appreciate your response, I am well aware of your app. I'm just trying to help address a problem with your competitor. Unless you're the same? But I'm not aware that you are.

Thanks for you smartass, remark. Gee, I hadn't thought of ... of course I did! I refreshed. I exited and re-entered. I tested it plenty of times. It's broke. I wouldn't have posted if I wasn't sure there was a problem.

|1 week 2 days ago||I've been flip-flopping about booing||
I was firmly under the impression it's OK to boo when the coaches do something like "not go for it on 4th down". That's clearly directed at the coaches. Booing after an interception is directed at the players. Not cool. There's a definite time and place for it, but one needs to be careful.
However, now that I've said that. I think I'm slowly flip-flopping about whether it's OK to boo. I've never been a fan of "booing". But after a lot thought can we just blame Dave Brandon? If I'm paying $100 for a ticket, that's PRO money. You present the team as professional when you require me to take a loan to buy season tickets. If you want us not to boo, then provide amateur-priced tickets. Until then, I think you can bet you're going to get some people who feel compelled to voice whatever opinion they want.
|1 week 2 days ago||Why did we let that happen...||
...probably b/c we're not assholes.
What's the harm. It should be a family atmosphere. Letting a mascot in the stands is about creating a fun environment spirited event. Perhaps we should just ban all opposing fans. How dare they.
|1 week 5 days ago||Your arguement seems invalid||
I'd argue that Miami did have the momentum already. They got the turnovers. They tied it up. Then they "stopped" our last minute drive by forcing us to punt instead of score. Keeping us off the scoreboard was their victory. Your argument, in my opinion, is invalid. You don't think they went into the locker room pumped?

"In the Miami game, the coaching staff was a little bit embarrassed". Where were the big Hoke balls that allowed him to poop gold from years past? 4th and inches. No timeout with clock running down. 4th and 6, and didn't go for it despite being on the 30-soming yardline. And if I'm not mistaken, he did that twice this game. That's pure Ferentz/Tressel ball. It's an embarrasment that the coaches don't know basic odds of winning a game and going for it in enemy territory. /rant

Eh, my bad for not reading the video title. I thought it was going to be a news piece on JW.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yards per attempt||
Total yards is stupid for comparison. Some teams have had BYES already (MSU) and if you're up a lot, you're going to run it more. Better to look at YPA.
Now that makes more sense. We are #14! MSU #82, haha.

|2 weeks 5 days ago||Am I an alarmist?||
Umm, Perhaps I'm seeing this incorrectly as the plays aren't in their full length, but Miller at Center consistently dives his head under to look back, then looks up, then immediately snaps it. I see no delay. Isn't this what MSU exploited a few years back in back to back games to jump the snap? Should we be worried?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Same feeling||
I tend to agree. JMFR should have a star. How could he not if he was considered the #1 LB for 2014 according to 247sports? Link. I know, I know. He's moved to MLB and has been sub-par at the new position. But the season hasn't even finished, I don't think you can take away his "star" status quite yet.
A little less surprised that Frank Clark didn't get one, but I can understand that logic.

|3 weeks 5 days ago||Away games||
Wow 2023 will be a b**** for OSU. They'll have 6 road games. The Big Ten starts a 9-game schedule starting in 2016. In odd years, OSU will play 4 home and 5 away games. Now adding @ND, that's going to be 6(!!!!) road games. They should have @UM, @Indiana, @Rutgers and two from the Big10 West.
edit: you know, now that I think about it, that's not going to be that tough. 6 aways games is going to be the norm. For instance, UM has set itself up to have 6 road games every odd year starting in 2017 Florida(Arlington), 2019 @Arkansas, 2021 @VaTech, 2023 @UCLA, 2025@Oklahoma
