Benson/Fawcett/HOF Positioning to Host 2018 State Finals

Despite the overwhelming negativity on Yappi, things keep moving right along at Benson. Contracts have yet to be signed, but final details are being ironed for Canton to host the 2018 finals.

Apparently the rat-infested, poorly-concreted edifice is functional enough to host several concerts, the HOF festivities and the OHSAA finals again. While Terrell Owens and those like-minded posters hate the stadium and city, real decision-makers seem to see it differently

Let's see what happens this June and July regarding further improvements. I know the doom-and-gloomers won't accept it, but good things may actually be happening.

Hope and change!!

Outside of Jim Tressel, did Columbus really want them? Now they're back in Canton, is Columbus really going to make a push to take them back again?

Ah yes. Nice short drive for northeast Ohio and a not so nice trip across the state for the western half. Makes perfect sense...

Provide a better option. More to it than having a decent facility. It takes people. If you have them make a proposal.

I think the plan is still to return to Columbus in 2019. But the OHSAA has a new commish at the end of summer. The Canton/Columbus rotation may change. Canton and the Hall will be hosting and NFL Centennial celebration starting in 2019 and into 2020.

The OHSAA is also working with the Hall on how the Finals are run. The ticketing system was a little late coming online last year and that should run much smoother. And the worst offender, parking, is being addressed. Parking will be allowed at the high school and the parking lot in Stadium park will be available (if the Hall of Fame starts paying their bills). This won't eliminate the need for parking at the Fairgrounds but will give fans options.

I'm agnostic to the location, but people who make the claim that the NEO championships were any better run than those in Columbus are delusional.

I kinda liked parking and tailgating right up next to Ohio Stadium, then strolling right into game. But the atmosphere inside probably better in a 20k seat venue.

Wasn't this announced by the OHSAA a couple of weeks ago?

There's nothing wrong with Ohio Stadium. I actually quite enjoyed it there. I liked going back to the parking garage in between each game and eat snacks and drink in between games instead of packing up and going up and traveling between stadiums like we used to have to do pre 2014. If the emptiness of it really bothers people then move it to Mapfre which might be vacant soon. Not that up to date on that Crew relocation debacle.
