Moving on to Rutgers- Ohio State tailgate

A lot can be said about the Rutgers-Michigan game yesterday, but regardless of how you want to spin it, remember where we were almost exactly 2 years ago today. Chris Ash was fired on September 29, 2019 after a 52-0 road load to Michigan. 

 
Our fearless leader putting Michigan loss behind him

Coach Schiano always says you enjoy a win or grumble over a loss for a day, and then you move on, so that’s what I’ll do today as they retire Eli’s number. (Thanks No 10. You will always be my favorite player for being great on and off the field.)  My only comment is I think we have some really fun tailgates and games coming up and better days ahead. We’ve been through the lowest of lows in so many ways the last few years on and off the field, and yesterday was an example of how much fun ( and nerve wracking!) it can be on the way back up.

Since Bill will be away next week visiting Stan in College Park, and I will not be able to make an early tailgate, Please use this post to start a discussion about what time you guys want to meet up, where do you want to meet up if not the usual place, what sort of tailgate you want to have, who will bring what, and specifically who is actually going to the game.

I also expect Stanhead, Davidhead, Sharonhead, Erichead, and the Panda to be there

  1. Witkowski party will be 4: Pete, Sharon, and our friends Glenn & Donna Pearson. Glenn & Donna will bring a pasta salad and I'll make/bring buckeyes (chocolate-dipped peanut butter balls), plus Miller Lite, Yuengling, a few more Bullieves, and all the plates/utensils, etc.

    Adam was out, then briefly in, and now out again (ahh, to be young). Therefore, Bill and Chris' 3 tickets are up for grabs.

    Unless someone has a grill and is willing to cook, I suggest everyone bring their own subs/sandwiches and then folks can pitch in with appetizers, sides and desserts.

    With a large and enthusiastic crowd likely to attend, along with an excellent weather forecast, I recommend everyone arrive at Walmart no later than 11am so we can leave promptly and secure a good location in the black lot.

  2. Should work Pete. I have a small portable propane grill if people felt like grilling. One of those 6 feet mixed subs might be nice.

  3. Hi-we’ll be there; 11am meet up sounds good. We like the bring your own sub idea. Also, wanted to be sure someone has the parking passes-we don’t have a pass in our possession. We can bring chips or dessert, whatever is needed.

    1. I have 2 sets of parking passes for each of the remaining games, plus I have Bill & Chris’ pass for the OSU game so I’ll bring all 3 on Saturday and will only be using one myself.

  6. Sounds like Bring Your Own Subs is the theme. We're bringing a pasta salad + buckeyes. Burks will bring a dessert. Can we have volunteers to bring 1) chips/pretzels, etc., 2) another side, maybe potato salad, cole slaw or some other? Open to additional suggestions.

    1. Sharon and I have one additional seat available in our car but I believe there will also be room with Dana and the Burks. Regardless, I’d like to leave Walmart at 11am to claim our spots in the black lot so we could always go in two waves.

  13. BAZ here .... I'm riding IN with larry for 1:30. ... if Larry needs to leave than Pete/Dana will be my ride out.
    Dana's table is at my WB house and I'm not there so I'll bring it to the next game. I'm doing the bagel shop for lunch, if someone wants something from there just text me.
