actually we spent a little bit more and had greater revenues - you spent 45 million on the football program we spent 46.5 million.
At OSU are you required to make yearly donations to renew your season tickets?
We do at UGA. Everything is about how much you donate, for the right to buy season tickets, priority for away games, and parking.

Yeah, and it's gotten worse lately. They cracked down on student tickets (you now have to show ID, since kids were selling their tix), and they just had a huge sweep through the state and busted a bunch of politicians who were getting Bucks tickets gratis. One guy got caught scalping them at a pretty hefty profit, too.

ND is still the worst for that, though. The "one time" donations just keep going up, and are ridiculous.

I like the fact that the Buckeyes spend 71% of their outlay on gameday. It IS quite the spectacle...

I'm coming up to Columbus for the Troy/OSU game on September 20th and I'm really looking forward to it (I've never been to a college game in the North.). Ticket prices are pretty steep though. I paid $62.00 face value for my ticket for that game. By comparison, my Troy/LSU ticket was $45.00.

Not a great representation since Troy will be considered a lamb to the slaughter, but there will definitely be spectacle galore.

If you are looking for the full-on "walk on the wildside" experience, check out the World's Largest Tailgate "Hineygate". Proves there are plenty of fruits to go along with the Bucknuts

Watch out for troy they have a pretty good team. OSU gets them right after USC. Could be a let down game.

I think Troy runs that Spread Passing Offense. They should be ok, but they don't have the depth to compete with OSU. IF OSU loses to USC...I fear for the Troy players in a bad way. Would hate to be the team they take their loss out on.

Btw...How CHEAP is it that USC has a Bi week before the OSU game and after the OSU game. Freaking Cheap.

Actually, it's pretty smart. It'll be the toughest game they play until the New Year, so why not sell out completely for that one game?
