Thank you for your reply and information Sparkeye, I will read the articles!
Sorry for my late reply, it was a busy day at OSU and then catch up time when I got back.
I have clinic hours on Saturday. (I am a psychologist).
My daughter is a genetics major, pre med like you!
I hope the baby is doing better and the fever has come down.
Oh yes, sorry, you answered the Braxton question before. I am old, my brain doesn’t work as well as it used to!
I am a psychologist, so I find the psychology of football so interesting, and right now there is a lot of psychology going on!
I think Cardale’s interview showed maturity and focus, which is going to help raise his stock. And three games only, who wants to take a chance on him. It should be an interesting year next year.
Yes I could not find any info about the trophy being displayed right now, so yes it looks like it won’t be available for viewing until the 24th! I will try to get the Woody Hayes Center later to see it. As I said I am on campus at least once a month. tOSU hosts a lot of parent events, this past Friday for example was OSU parent and student night at COSI. Everything was free, with chartered buses etc. They do quite a lot for the students and parents, free first run movies on the Oval with free food. I may have mentioned on football nights, there are jumbotrons at the union with more free food. They have a fabulous parent weekend in the fall and spring. Everyone has a ball, you would be amazed. The campus atmosphere is very different from when I was there many years ago. They have something now called the Freshman Year Experience, with lots of perks, mentoring, activities, etc for freshman.
Yes when I was at OSU, of course the football talk was there, but I was focused totally on my classes, dissertation, etc. Now I can be a fan. My daughter and her friends had not even heard about the Cardale interview or that he might leave, but they thought he did the right thing to stay when I informed them of the situation. My daughter says she sees Urban Meyer on campus all the time, he is always walking somewhere on campus it seems. I told her to try and get a selfie last month, but now he is going to be mobbed I would think every time he ventures out.
Yes I have been following the tOSU rankings, it is amazing. And I am not sure if you are aware, but the plan is keep raising the average ACT score, tOSU wants to be on par with Michigan and Wisconsin. Also right now, it is the best financial bargain around, tuition is reasonable and the opportunities and academics are excellent. Also there is a big fun factor at OSU now, consistently is ranked high on that dimension, over a 1000 clubs, etc. The rec center is the largest in the US I believe. Oh another thing, don’t know if they had Carmen when you were there (internet, not the song.) The kids do a lot of the academic work on Carmen, take quizzes, write papers etc. I was up there one weekend and Carmen went down and the kids ran around with their hair on fire, not knowing what to do. I suggested that they study the old fashioned way, get out their books and a yellow highlighter.
Currently there are 60,000 students on the main campus, I think about 40,000 applications last year, and 7000 freshman slots.
