    They shoulda kept it as a home game for the higher team. Would help with getting in the CFP too.

    It's like we're teaching this one our ways and lingo....before @HuskiesvOhioStRoseBowl knows it they may very well be rooting for a different team come 2019....

    In my mind UW fans drink fancy wines

    TTUN fans drink toilet water

    I could go on but you get the idea

    Late with my reply. The Game = Ohio State vs Michigan. Our offense put up 550 yards and 55 offensive points against the #1 defense in the country...your secondary will face a test light-years tougher than anything you've faced this season.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Tickets are what they are. Looks like min of $250 + service charges. Hotels are expensive but looks like VRBO has some good deals. Saw a cute place in Hollywood Hills for $180 or so per day. Too small for us, but looks good for a couple. I have to guess flights could be had for reasonable too... if you look.

    If you worked at it, I guess you could do it for a $2-$3k pretty comfortably.

    Thanks so much for answering. We both received $100 vouchers for Southwest back in July (though I'm guessing there's probably blackout dates....). We've thought about flying into Vegas as a secondary option since it looks like the flight options are limited (at least on SW)... though there's some still pretty good rates out there. One thing we've got going for us-- I've racked up enough points for a free rental car so we're not extremely limited in where we'd be staying. So, I'm guessing Compton probably has some good rates-- even this time of year. :eek:

    As far as hotels go, did you end up looking in Glendale? I've stayed out there before during a business trip. That night Nicole Ritchie went the wrong way down the highway near me. That's a really good price for HH. I've had to go out there a couple of times for work. Too bad you couldn't take it. We can prob only stay 3 or 4 days max not sure if that would help w/the price. Though my Dad left me a pretty good amount, 3k is more than I paid for my car.


    We've never been to a bowl game before so I don't know how different they all are... normally do the Orange/Peach/Sugar have as many events? Are they as interesting?
    Would you say The Rose Bowl is much more unique than other major bowls? The best one?

    With Day coming on, there's definitely an uncertainty we won't be in this position for a long time. I guess it just depends on our personal preference... Is it worth it to go to Urban Meyer's last game? Haskins will definitely put on a show but that wouldn't be the historic part of it all. And, we aren't surrounded by Buckeye Nation down here that's for sure. Plus, I do have a pretty good feeling we'd win. I'm the worst w/decisions & know you guys can't tell us what to do but I'd like to gather as much info as possible.

    We're checking to see if my husband's parents will be attending. He used to be a prof @ tOSU. They always seem to end up at the best games (I'm still learning his Dad was at some historic games-- randomly mentioning, "oh yeah, my Dad was at that one"). This year, a professor friend gave him tix to The Game.


    The irony: since we live in Florida, we're within a days drive to so many different CFB bowls (even the Peach isn't that bad, Sugar is pushing it). The worst part? Since we moved here, Ohio State had the opportunity to make it down here to, if they'd played their cards right, go to the Natty(s). Or, make it to a semi-final. To anyone who wonders why I hate Bama/Clemson more than the average tOSU fan, they've both occupied 3 spots we could've taken for 3 straight years. One literally within walking distance of work. Every year I was really hoping they'd (and you'd) come to us.

    Thank you all very much!

    This post seems unnecessarily snarky. This guy came in and has offered some insight and some opinions. Some of them might be true and others might be misguided, but it always seems like when new people come along and make some statements, someone escalates things into a “fight”. Civility my man.

    Fail to see how this is in any way "snarky". I pointed out what "The Game" is (which he asked). I pointed out our offensive stats for said game, and noted that it was against the then-best defense in the country. I also said his secondary will face it toughest test, by far, this season (which also is true). I used no terms like "typical PAC 12 defense" or whatnot, nor made claims like "your defense has no chance against our offense".

    Agreed; when you, Nigel, criticized DBB for getting a little sarcastic with a TCU fan, I disagreed with you, but understood where you were coming from; as I largely sympathize with your desire to promote participation from non-OSU fans on the board. But I'm having a hard time seeing your objection to Mililani's post.

    Maybe it’s me being overly sensitive. I just saw the “your defense hasn’t seen anything like us” a bit over the top. But maybe I’m wrong. Apologies

    All good. I think Dwayne is going to try and go out in style, not only because it just might be his last game in the scarlet and gray, but to also send his head coach out on a high note.

    Thanks for talking football. Thick skin is advisable, as is backing up your argument with facts. You seem to be doing well on both fronts.

    How would you say this team compares to past UW defenses?

    How would you say the conference compares to past years in terms of offensive proficiency? Trying to gauge how good your defense is compared with how mediocre the league is this year on O.

    The defensive numbers are impressive, and this is a fanbase that appreciates good defense (even if they've morphed into an Oklahoma style defense for large stretches of this year).
