One Shoe In Front Of The Others: Why Ohio Stadium Is The Best Stadium
Ohio Stadium is always included among the top tier of college stadiums on anyone’s list. Of course, any Buckeye would put it on the top of that list, because the Shoe crushes every other stadium with the weight of 200,000 soles. Here’s everything that sets it apart.
Even a Seven Nation Army couldn’t hold us back from cheering.
Very sexy ushers.
Zero waste stadium, meaning 100% of its waste is recycled by being left in the bleachers.
Mekka Don’s voice is often in it.
If you black out during a game, like many people do, the worst that can happen is just a little tumble down hundreds of metal stairs.
Beautiful artificial turf field that doesn’t fall apart when Carlos Hyde drags defenders’ cleats along it for 25 yards.
Every game there is an Ohio State game.
Only stadium in the nation that doesn’t have boy-girl-boy-girl assigned seating.
Has a longstanding tradition in which michigan visits and loses once every two years.
Has seats, bathrooms, staircases.
Field isn’t blue.
Plays “Hell’s Bells” before 3rd downs haha welcome to Hell, other team!
Doesn’t have its own lights because it doesn’t need them — the stars on the field shine bright enough for us (awww).
Switch the order of the name and it’s still something awesome: Stadium Ohio.
Scoreboard has a lot of pretty sweet ads.
Still has that new stadium smell.
Every seat is a good seat except for the ones behind the pillars like what is that all about?
Huge speakers would be capable of blasting “Ohio” by the Black Keys if the athletic department had any taste at all.
Not full of bees. It’s important to remember the little things.
Each section has its own unique drunk-guy-who-loses-his-balance-every-once-in-a-while-but-catches-himself-on-your-shoulders.
So good that people pay money just to stand in it.
Actually has a state of the art retractable roof but just always leaves it open.
Uniquely acceptable place to shout profanity at the minority.
Uniquely acceptable place to hug complete strangers.
What it really comes down to is the people. The people the tradition the excellence #GoBucks #TheShoe Buckeye For Life see Macklemore and Ryan Lewis live at the Schottenstein Center.
