    Thank You. Very well said.

    I personally have zero malice toward the other Ohio schools and root for them whenever I see them playing a non-Ohio school. I used to get so pissed off watching the old California Bowl between the MAC and ??(some west coast conference equivilant) it wasn't even funny.

    As far as the minor league comment goes, I stand by it. They aren't in our class and its no big deal, again to use baseball....I am as die hard a Reds fan as they come but I know damn good and well they aren't in the same class as the good MLB teams. When they playoffs start I always have to adopt a team for the post season. I don't buy hats or anything like that but I care how they do(somewhat). Its not being disloyal or bandwagon, its just two completely different leagues to me.

    How early to get into the stadium

    I'm taking my eight year old daughter to the game. She's beyond excited. However she is 8 so I don't want to get places too early, etc. About how long before the game starts does the band start coming out? Or more like, how long before the game does the team stop warming up and go into the locker room? I'd like to get seated when they are coming to a close on the warmups.

    The sick part is many of these MAC fans consider themselves on equal footing. Afterall aren't we all Division 1A schools and programs? In theory we all have chances to win the National Championship. But like baseball the system is not fair. The MAC schools are like the Pittsburgh Pirates, Kansas City Royals and the old Montreal Expos. They just do not have the resources available to compete to win it all.

    Now every now and then a lower team can move up to compete for one magical year. Miami (Oh) when it had Roethlisberger, Marshall during its Pennington/Leftwich years and recently Boise State. At least they had the teams/talent to make a run.

    So the Ohio State's are the Yankees to them. The big bad bully. The MAC fanatics that had no affiliation before college view their fellow MAC student as crazy for loving Ohio State and the fanatics view is "you should have went to Ohio State if you want to root for them".

    But if you think Akron fan boards are funny, wait til you play Ohio University next year. They are even more fanatic and have much more hatred. I know I have been in many message board spats explaining how as an Ohio University alum I can love the Buckeyes just as much, even when in 2008 I will be proudly wearing my green and white and rooting for Ohio to win.

    Getting there that late with a kid in-tow is not a great idea IMHO. The band comes out 20 minutes before game time, which is immediately after the warmups wrap up. As Script Ohio is typically done pre-game, the 'Shoe is a 'Zoo at 20-30 minutes before kick-off. With an 8-year-old in tow, I'd want to be in my seat enjoying the atmosphere before then. It is a personal preference thing, so do what you think is best.

    With I-AA's two-time defending nation champ beating Michigan at the Pig House, and the above-mentioned wins by MAC schools over Big Ten and Big 12 opponents, it goes to show that you can no longer take any opponents for granted...you can bet that JT and staff are taking this game very seriously.

    Seeing Moses get action Saturday for the buckeyes was awesome, now this week I got another friend on Akron. Chris Kemme (88 Overall in NCAA 08 :lol:) who is starting on the Zips line and is a captain as a junior. For all of you locals hes from UA.

    A valid point, but I think the minor league/major league comparison is more apt, for the following reason. Akron and OSU are not in competition with each other in any meaningful sense, even in a season when they play one another. An Akron/OSU dual fan doesn't have to follow either team as a back-up to the primary team, as you do when you prefer a non-Reds team in the post-season, precisely because success or failure for Akron and OSU are completely independent of each other. The Reds and the Braves are in the same league, competing for the same prize. Akron and OSU, for all intents and purposes, are not.

    Yeah, like if you were a Reds fan you can also be a fan of the Indians. Before interleague games these teams would never meet unless it is in the World Series.

    Akron and OSU do have the same goals. To win every game they play, win their conference and play for the National Championship or BCS Bowl.

    Zurp I have misplaced my pants.

    Can't argue with that call.

    Just out of curiosity, though, what's the point of a coach releasing a depth chart? Just to get on the good side of the media?

    I couldn't agree more, Piney. The OU board is pretty much laughable at this point w/ the hatred. It pretty much overtakes people's lives.
