You're a damn idiot. Everyone in the thread is now dumber for reading your scribble. You make absolutely no sense in 95% of your posts. Please, I beg you, craw back in to your trailer and don't come out until feeding time.
I piss excellence.
I think this game will come off as a success regardless of TV coverage -
Hopefully since it is not live - more will turn out.
attempting to look at this in positive perspective.
I'm just glad its on tv, period. it's not like i have to go radio silent to avoid hearing the outcome like i would if it was a taped delayed actual game. it's a practice people.
My family bought 20 tickets. We had not been to Spring Game in Columbus. I think there will be a lot of people in the same boat.
When we went to make a purchase online (about 3 weeks ago) there wasn't much left -- all the lower level sidelines were gone and so was one endzone.
You know what, Gene Smith needs to fix this. He agreed to this bullshit. This is on him. What a colossal fuckup.
There is no question that Mike Brown and Hamilton County are thrilled that there is no live TV, and I'm sure that OSU is not upset by it. This is a tough sale for local Cincinnatians. It will take a lot of traveling Buckeyes, in a 2.5 hour driving radius, to reasonably fill PBS. The upper deck is empty right now, and this stadium only holds 60K+, not 105K.
Right now, most sales are secondary Stub Hub sales of lower level tickets for $30-$35.
You younger guys need to chill out about Sprring Practice.....it was not on TV for years, and then when it was shown it too was not live but shown on local OSU station chanel 34. We are spoiled here at OSU. Anwway, you will find that most of the Spring practice games are a dissapointment, bacasue the guys we want to see play about 5 minutes, and then a guy that we have never heard about(like that Thomas kid a couple of years ago) catches 50 balls, and we go nuts thinking..wow we have a star..and then you never hear of him untill the nex spring game......excuse my memory(on his name) but we had a guy here for 4 years, who they called "Mr Spring Game" here who looked like a Heisman triophy winner every year in the Spring game, and then did diddly-squat when inserted in a real game....I know we all want to see Braxton, and his gang in action after watching basketball for 5 months...but lets face it...having the game in Cinncinnati is the first stupid thing here, and not live TV is sort of the icing on the cake.....but hey tune in anwatch the replay...no one is a bung hole here...its just plain business......Ok now you can call me every name in the book...ha ha....
I complained on twitter and got a response from BTN. Michigan and OSU both refused to move spring game. Both will have games tape delayed. Still lame.
check out bloguin.com or awfulannouncing.com. Follow me @bkoo on twitter.
So it sounds like it was Ohio State's decision. Gene must want that ticket money.
This is the truth.
Relative to other potential programming for BTN that day, our spring game would be the most interesting option. But, seeing the next coming of Bam Childress, or whatever his last name was, does not trip my trigger.
I can handle tape delay; I'd be out cycling anyway during the live event.
Diddy, go get a drink and watch some BB. Toast the fact that Jeans wasn't on the selection committee.
I suspect that this has something to do with the OSU Athletic Department and BTN attempting to push fans to go to the game since it's in Cincinnati. Just speculatin'
1st Mistake: Having it in Cincinnati.
2nd Mistake: Having it in Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium.
3rd Mistake: Having it in Cincinnati, at Paul Brown Stadium, and the remaining Buckeye fans that don't attend can't watch it live... FAIL.
Michigan spring game won't air on live TV due to conflict with Ohio State
ANN ARBOR – Michigan won’t budge. And neither will Ohio State.
So neither team’s spring game will make it onto live TV.
The Wolverines’ spring game is slated to kick off at 12:30 p.m. on April 13, while the Buckeyes' game is scheduled for a 1 p.m. start. The Big Ten Networked announced Thursday that neither program agreed to move its game, so neither will be aired live.
BTN will broadcast both games on tape delay, according to the release, with Ohio State's game slated for the 7 p.m. slot, then Michigan's game at 9 p.m.
Michigan wons spring game will make it onto live TV.
So basically both kids wanted to play with the toy at the same time. When neither would accepting with said toy later in the day it was just taken away from both.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
They are going to televise the Alabama. Spring game instead. Bigger crowd. Butt heads.
NO ONE WILL EVER TAKE THESE BIG TEN CHAMPS 2005, 2007, 2007 AWAY COACH TRESSEL, GOD BLESS
