I am a huge Ohio State fan. That is whay I started this thread. I thought there will be some more conversation.
@ albionus I am down here in the south and I havnt heard much. Do you have any info on Ohio States preparation, etc compared to last year.
Go Bucks and dont forget...
The Ohio State University!
Nothing up to date, the only info I get about local issues is from listening to local AM talk radio on the way the class and back. With the holidays I haven't been going to class so I haven't heard much recently.
I do know from early December that the coaches are much more serious this time about keeping the players under control while in whatever city the game is going be in. Last time they lost all control with agents taking big players out to party and such right before the game. It does help that OSU doesn't have a dozen or so players going to the NFL like last time.
There was some talk about bringing the players back for some practices earlier during the holidays since it's thought that other conferences playing games for 2 weeks longer than the Big 10 plays a role in the Big Ten's not so great bowl record. From what I've heard Tressel is one of the biggest coaches in the Big 10 against extra games or extra holiday practices since the players should be with family for the holidays and the first week of December is finals week for OSU. That may have chnaged, I don't know.
Other than that that's all I've really heard. No doubt I'll hear a lot more tomorrow when I go back to class.
