    I think 2008 will be a fun year. I am especially excited to see us playing YSU. I'm from Youngstown so I've followed Tressel his whole career and it's nice to see him giving back to YSU. Even though they will get crushed it will be awesome publicity for them, and I think they get like $600,000 just for coming to the Shoe and getting there asses handed to them. Also pumped about going to USC which could launch us up the polls early in the season. Always nice to have M*ch*g*n at home as well. Good stuff Mili.
  4. I'm so excited for the future USC matchups. It's like a regular season Rose Bowl. I'm glad to see OSU has balls and schedules top teams.

    Man, we have a tough ending to the '09 and '10 schedules. Iowa, PSU, and scUM. That's brutal. Although, at the same time, it's kind of a good thing because usually we play our best as the season goes on. One thing is for sure, those are going to be some very intense Novemebers.

    JohnnyCockfight Beer is God's proof that he loves us.

    Can we schedule an away-and-away with Arizona State? I can't imagine not being able to win any more games in Sun Devil Stadium just because they're moving the Fiesta Bowl.

    (Didn't know where else to put this...)

    Buckeyes should try and get Sun Devil Stadium as their practice facility before the bowl game next year.

    Well I am pretty stoked, looks like they play the huskies in 2007 and the cougars in 2009 ( i am sure this will be in seattle and not pullman), so i will get a chance to see my buckeyes at least twice in the near future living out here in spokane as I am.

    Twelfth game gives leverage to mid-major schools

    Ohio State is learning that when it comes to scheduling a Mid-American Conference football team, it’s not as easy as it used to be. No more dialing 1-800-NEED-WIN.

    For that reason, it’s likely the Buckeyes eventually will announce a date with Division I-AA Youngstown State. The Penguins are more willing to travel and take a beating in exchange for a few hundred thousand dollars.

    College teams continue to scramble to add 12 th games to their schedules, thanks to legislation passed in April. Since then, Ohio State has announced a 12 th game with Bowling Green in 2006 and Ohio University in 2008, but open dates remain in both 2007 and 2008.

    "I feel pretty good that (an OSU-YSU game) is going to happen," Youngstown State athletics director Ron Strollo said. "We’ve been in discussions. (Buckeyes officials are) obviously trying to fill in with those MAC schools. I expect to hear a phone call when they run out of those type of options."

    And those options are getting scarce. MAC schools are discovering that they are sellers in a seller’s market, and they are becoming choosy about whom they play and where.

    "We have great tradition — two years ago we ended up the 10 th-ranked team in the nation," Miami University athletics director Brad Bates said. "So we feel we’re a program worthy of trying to schedule as many home-and-home (series) as possible.

    "We realize it’s a tiered system, and some teams aren’t going to want to sign home-and-home, but we’re trying to exhaust all those possibilities first."

    In other words, Bates would rather set up a home-and-home series with a middle-of-the-road team from a power conference than schedule a series of road games at OSU, Michigan or another perennial powerhouse.

    That’s why Miami has a home-and-home with Syracuse the next two seasons and no plans for another date with the Buckeyes anytime soon.

    "No question, if a school like Ohio State or Michigan or Florida or someone like that gives us an opportunity to take a shot at them, strategically we need to try to play that into our schedule," Bates said. "But you have to be very calculated how you try and do that. It’s a complex issue."

    The MAC is proud of its 11-5 record in bowl games since 1998. Between then and 2003, a MAC school finished in the Associated Press Top 25 poll every year.

    MAC athletics directors are wary of overscheduling.

    "We’re trying to get more quality opponents into our facilities," Bowling Green AD Paul Krebs said. "We recognize some Big Ten programs are not going to come into a MAC venue. Ohio State, Penn State or Michigan isn’t going to come to Bowling Green. But a number of other programs will, and that puts us on a more competitive level field."

    Bowling Green signed a modified home-and-home with Wisconsin. The Falcons and Badgers will play in Cleveland Browns Stadium this fall and in Madison in 2007.

    Last year, Purdue agreed to a two-for-one series with Toledo, with a game at Toledo in 2007.

    Ohio State is trying to make the puzzle pieces fit, and the MAC is trying to take advantage of some newfound leverage.

    Meanwhile, Youngstown State’s Strollo finds his school in demand. The Penguins played Pittsburgh last season and will travel to Penn State this year.

    As part of the 12 th-game legislation, the NCAA decreed that a victory over a I-AA school could count toward the seven wins a team needs to be bowl-eligible. Previously, I-AA wins could be counted only once every four seasons.

    "My phone is ringing off the hook. Teams want to pay a lot of money to play us," Strollo said. "Our hope is that when it does come to a point where (Ohio State) needs to schedule a I-AA program, they stay in state. We’ll wait (on OSU) as long as we can."

    coastalbuck And this one belongs to the Reds!

    I don't like that rule change too much. I, for one, would hope that tOSU never plays a 1-AA, even if it would be YSU. I just don't think we should do that.

    Yeah, I don't like the I-AA win counting either. Good news for the Big XII I guess.

    OSU playing YSU?

    Will that even be a game? Or will Tressel not want to run the score up too high, especially on his old team?

    With this new rule allowing I-AA games to count, I expect a lot of run up scores. I see teams running it up into the 60's and 70's. And that seems like it will happen often.
