Every year it's discussed which games have the longest travel.

And it's not just fans complaining about traveling for a road game (since the home team's trip is rather short). But, if you're...

The OHSAA is the one paying the travel. My point was you assuming my plan was taking away home games from higher seeds. There's #5 through #8 that could go to any of the high seeds based on geography...

Just to denigrate it, I think.

The stadium isn't really set up well for big concerts. The 'stage' was more for the enshrinement ceremony than it is for a traditional stage for a major performance....

Why assume they'd play the 2 or 3 seed? Those schools earned a home game. But picking travel times between hosting #5-#8 should be favored, especially for first round instead of a rigid bracket.

If it's a time-off issue for work, I'd play it safe and request off for that Friday. Unless you think you can wait.

Friday night makes sense now instead of Saturday afternoon given that the B1G...

One suggestion to make kickoffs safer is to stop making it a live ball after it's kicked so many yards. Keep maybe a 10-20 yard 'live' zone, but after that, it's exclusive to the receiving team. They...

A properly maintained grass field will cost you a lot of money a year. Sadly, most small schools that operate a grass field barely maintain it anyways. There's much more cost than just cutting and...
