    This may happen, but I would not rely on this reporter to give an credible information. He is just a gossip columnist that they stuck in the sports section.

    Why would you do that? Do you think you could get more fans in Cleveland than Columbus? I doubt it. First of all the South side of the state may make the trip to Columbus, but only the sick dihards like us would travel that far for a spring game. You eliminate half of you fan base. Plus not area is filled with more dihards that the home base Columbus Ohio anyway. IF they do it, what a dumb idea.

    The stadium would be packed. But it would kind of cut off the souther half of the state. Plus Cleveland Browns stadium is nice but it's not the shoe. The spring game is one of the things I look foreward to every year. You really get to meet the dihard fans there.

    Are there NCAA or conference restrictions on the number of jersey scrimmages a team can have? Sounds like a great opportunity for our young guys to get more experience.

    As a Clevelander, I'm biased, but I think it may have a hidden benefit. It would be nice to tell recruits that their 2nd Spring practice is going to be in an NFL Stadium. Give the kids a taste of what they are shooting for. We don't have the bling-bling of USC/Miami per se, but this might help give a little spark to some recruits, IMHO.

    There is a limit on the number of scrimmages a team can have.

    I don't see how they could possible pack the stadium in Cleveland. If you're only getting 50K in the mecca of college football for the spring game, how can you fill a stadium for a scrimmage two hours away from home when you're cutting off the bottom half of the state. I'm a diehard and there is NO WAY I'd drive 4 hours for a regular scrimmage.

    haha....aparently there are only dihard fans in columbus!

    get a grip people, others would like to see OSU besides those that live around the campus.

    guys, you're missing the point (I think)

    in addition to its annual Scarlet-Gray game in Columbus

    Basically he's saying that OSU is considering holding either its first jersey scrimmage or it its kick scrimmage (not as likely, IMO) in C-town. These scrimmages usually aren't even open to the public more often than not.

    Clev,

    That's how I read it as well... I think he is saying there would be two spring games (one in C-Bus, one on the mistake by the lake :tongue2: )... I think this would be good for recruiting, could raise some $$ for the AD, the fans would prob. enjoy it, and the players would prob. get a kick out of playing in an NFL stadium... I like the idea.

    If it works I think it would be a smart move to have two spring games each spring..... one would always be in the shoe. The other would rotate from Clev. to Cincy each year.... good for recruiting, get fan interest, raise $$, and I would think the players would like it as well...

    Great idea IMO...

    NE Ohio is usually loaded with talent year-in and year-out and NE Ohio is very much pro-OSU, unlike SW Ohio. A scrimmage in CBS would bring in close to 50,000 (IMO) and would also draw folks from the PA area too. I like Gbear's idea of rotating between Cincy and Cleve, every other year, but the annual Scarlet and Gray game is to remain in the Shoe. Rotating a scrimmage to Cincy every other year may help in making that part of the state a little more pro-OSU.

    50K???

    We barely get 50K for the Spring Game in the largest, most pro-Buckeye city there is, centrally located in this great state.

    Although I don't live in the area anymore, NE Ohio would definitely be able to put some butts in the seats. Youngstown/Warren is 2 1/2 to 3 hours from The Shoe, while only an hour from the Brown's stadium. NW Ohio is also somewhat closer (Toldeo is 20-some miles closer to Cleveland than it is to Columbus). Playing in Cleveland would give Buckeye fans who otherwise may not be able to see them play a chance to watch them.

    Yes but the novelty of seeing the buckeyes in Cleveland would be a draw.

    My wife and I flew from Palm Beach International Airport, to Hopkins Airport, drove to Medina (parents house- surprised them. they didn't know we were coming)- spent the night and got wasted, then woke up early enough to make it to the Shoe. My wife slept in the LeBronMobile in the parking garage because she was too hungover.

    Point being: There are plenty of jackasses just like me.
