Is there any movement in Cbus to getting the OSU hockey team their own facility? It's such a shame they've had to play at the Schott all these years, what a horrible setup. I've always thought OSU should at least dump a bunch of money into the OSU Ice Arena. Nothing obscene, but I bet you could totally jazz up that facility and make it D-1 worthy, even if it's only 1000 capacity.
It's always easy to say "what if we just had a new arena," but I think in OSU's case it would make a world of difference. Unlike in East Lansing where MSU fans love to whine about having an old facility but coaching incompetence is really MSU's undoing.
OSU since the NCAA crackdown nationwide has pretty much disbanded official booster groups for all sports and hockey never had any seriously rich givers like football and when we did have our Center Ice official booster group membership was small.
We have had MANY debates & discussions here on forum about a new facility and rumor has persisted there is one in the long term plans but none of our fans here seem to agree how much the capacity should be if it is built.
25 seats left in the reserved sections. Any Buckeyes going to buy them and make an easy road trip up?
Ohio State takes game one in Bowling Green earlier tonight by a final score of 5-4. The two teams are at it again tomorrow night in Columbus at Value City Arena.
Just got home from the game, still energized from that last period. What a great finish!
Let's go Bucks and get the sweep tomorrow!
Very nice win for the Buckeyes tonight. They showed a lot of grit once again coming back from a 2 goal 3rd period deficit for the 2nd time in 3 games. I thought Tomkins was very good all night long. He had almost no chance on any of the 3 PPG's that BG had.
We still gave up goals by getting penalties. People were saying well it's because they're calling interference differently now.
I say no. Yes we did get called for that twice but we had SIX additional penalties of mixed variety!
We HAVE to stop committing so many penalties or we will simply give very winnable games away!!
Frozen Four: 1998

R.I.P. CCHA 1971-2013
In summary I'd say BG played with more intensity on their home ice as did we.
BG's lone goal came on an opportunity caused by 3 of our players being slow & indecisive on making a line change and the fresh players couldn't catch up to the play that came back in our zone.
I hope the 6-1 of tonight's score and the weekend sweep gets some recognition in next weeks polls!
With the number of returning starters on this team I was optimistic for a good season. With the contributions so far from two freshmen (Hein and Lacynski) and one transfer (Joyeaux) that optimism has only increased. Maybe that bandwagon I see coming around the corner will finally put some butts in the seats of the Schottenstein Center.
