Is there something to be "positive" about when it comes to OSU hockey? The old forum must not have had a post since June 12th since it looks like that is the last date prior to some updating by the USCHO admin folks. ;)

Seriously, it is amazing to me that OSU is not a bigger player in the hockey world with that big time athletic department that seems to have a bottomless pit of money. I can understand Michigan and Notre Dame having a better program but Miami and last year, Alaska??

I don't know what happened to it, but I'm glad you brought it back!!

I noticed on the schedule that there is a game scheduled for October 4 in the Ice Rink against Western Ontario. I don't remember seeing it before, but I may have just missed it.

We all know that Football at OSU is # 1 and Hockey is # 2. OK. :eek:

You're kidding yourself if you think hockey is even #2 at OSU... It's #3 behind basketball and sometimes even #4 behind women's basketball... It all comes down to which sport makes the most money at OSU. With the amazing run the women's team had last year (and despite a good season for hockey), the priorities of Athletics may have changed a bit.

Have you guys ever had a sell out? If not what's most you ever got for one game?

Yeah really, who would ever guess that hockey would be a bigger deal in a place like Alaska than in the hockey hotbed of Ohio?:rolleyes:

hotbeds getting at least a little better with the recruits both our teams are getting. now if we only still had a USHL club in the state, that one hurts.

For a stadium that holds 17,500 total for hockey, it would be hard to sell out. The lower bowl (I believe around 10,000 for hockey) has been sold out. The highest attendance I could find came from a game against M*ch*g*n in <s>2007 where attendance was 13,296</s>**. From this season, the highest attendance was 9,267 again vs. M*ch*g*n. That number surprises me since the upper level was open and pretty full. I guess that's the kind of numbers you get when the people with club level packages don't use their hockey tickets.

**It has been brought to my attention that my original high game was not actually the highest. OSUHockey09 pointed out that the M*ch*g*n game in 2005 (Jan. 21) was actually higher with an attendance of 14,777.

Does Ohio State's athletic department do a good job promoting the games and trying to get students to attend or is it more the students promoting it themselves?

Oh is that the old Mahoning Valley club? I knew they had an NAHL team, just didn't know they were getting the bump up this year. Good call.

The Buckeyes have sold out games against mich before. If fact the first game ever at the Schott was a sell out. If you check the yearbook its in there.

Those were just the numbers that I got from the ohiostatebuckeyes.com site. If you look at the box scores, it shows the attendance for each game.

Yes, both CCHA playoff games against BG were SRO. Largest crowd, not sure. They have had a few 10,000+ games.

Some tried to bash OSU for playing their CCHA games at the Ice Ring against BG. Really I didn't see it as a big deal, it was the best that they could do under the circumstances.
This season is different. Where is the Oct 17th game against Denver to be played. The Schott has a womans conference scheduled that day and the Blue Jackets are at home. It would unforgivable for OSU to paly a home game against the number 1 team in that hole.

After more research, I found 2 articles that give attendance for the first season the Schott was used. I find it funny that the first article says that 17,045 was a sellout, yet the second game has attendance listed as 17,249 and doesn't mention that the game was a sell out. The Schott website lists that there is seating at hockey games for 17,500.

TTT, I wouldn't worry too much about the Denver game. The previous event ends at 4:30. I know that to convert from basketball to hockey takes about 3.5 hours and can be as little as 2.5. I would imagine it would be less to convert from this event to hockey. My guess is the game will be played at 8:00 or 8:30 in the Schott.

The students pretty much do all the marketing themselves, but don't have nearly enough money or resources to do it well. It's extremely hard to do on a campus where people really only care about football and sometimes basketball. Plus it didn't help any that every sporting event was free with a BuckID except football, men's and women's basketball, and men's ice hockey. Apparently they tried to change it and make men's ice hockey free this year too, but last I heard it had been shot down. In previous years, the marketing department has been given a set amount of money to promote the games to everyone, students and public. Most of the resources get allocated to the general public because they pay more money than the students. Apparently they would rather have money than a decent atmosphere. The marketing for Ohio State is being taken over by an external company (supposedly) so I have no idea what will be happening in the future.

It would be pushing it to be played at 8:00; maybe nine. I'd rather see a nooner at nationwide. Bringing in the #1 team and playing at the Ice rink should never happen, I just hope that it is not a possibility.
