    This is just an interesting story on recruiting flips and/or transfers, etc. including this classic photo:

    calibuck Too soon old, too late smart

    An outside the box question, does anyone know if the Ozone is terminating their website? Seems like there's very few updates/new stuff, and John Porentas is the major poster when he does post. Thanks in advance. Also, anybody in the know about the BSB website? Seems to be 'off the air' (to me at least). Have been a print subscriber for 20+ years (mas o menos) and like to go there in between their paper publications.....thanks in advance. Go Bucks!

    FWIW,

    1) I remember reading several weeks ago that many of the O-Zone reporters moved over to the new Buckeye Scoop forum. These were paid people. The guy that runs the O-Zone (maybe it was John Porentas I don't remember) indicated that he has holding off hiring any new reporters until the football season actually started, etc. Anyway this is on their website:

    The Present
    The changes on the internet have changed the way that companies operate on the web. The-Ozone did not adapt to recent changes particularly well and to some extent fell behind other sites. The company has recently re-evaluated its operations. A site redesign is the first of a series of improvements planned to improve the site’s competitive in the marketplace.

    2) I haven't seen much if The Buckeye Sports Bulletin for over 30 years now. Back then I picked up some complimentary copies of it at a Big Bear grocery on the corner of Hamilton Rd. and route 62 (Johnstown Rd.). However, (after a "Google" check) it does appear that The Buckeye Sports Bulletin website is currently up and running:

    THE 1996 BUCKEYES KILLED OFF THE BELIEF THAT REBUILDING WAS NECESSARY AFTER AN NFL EXODUS

    Just sayin': I was at that Rose Bowl and it sure doesn't seem like it was 25 years ago.

    This is a fun stat:
    I wasn't able to go to the Rose Bowl game, I was only 13 at the time. But my great aunt and uncle went. They decided to leave when Plummer scored the TD to go up 14-10 to beat the foot traffic back to the shuttle bus. They were on the bus outside the stadium, waiting to go back to the hotel when they heard the cheers and, being 1996, had no idea what happened until everyone else got back to the bus after the actual end of the game. Not their best moment.

    Just sayin': I was in a tour group too and there was no advantage in beating the foot traffic. You went back to the same bus you came on, they counted the people, and the bus didn't leave until everyone was onboard. They did ask you to get back to the bus something like by 20 minutes after the game ended or they threatened to leave without you.

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    Did the same at the Toledo Sports Arena and Aerosmith at some point during my HS years. Learned to never leave a show until the house lights come on. Just as we got outside we heard the opening bars to Sweet Emotion. :shrug:

    Ah, Aerosmith... My first concert. '75 at St John Arena. Face value on the ticket was a hefty $5.50.

    They would have been in their mid-to-late 70s at the time, they just didn't want to be in the crowd and foot traffic on the way out of the stadium to the bus.
    I've never done that, but we did watch an encore at one show from the exit so as soon as the lights came up we hot footed it out of there. I forget who it even was, we clearly weren't overly invested in the show.

    Yeah, never done it for a band that I really liked. Aerosmith, even in the late 80's, was like my experience going to see the Stones. More of a curiosity / museum relic than anything that I really had to see. And late '80s shows at the TSA were like $15 so the price was right. I think this was a little more... triple bill of Bad Co. / Triumph / Aerosmith if I recall correctly. Talk about going to see a performing museum...
