So it sounds like no tickets available at the gate. Unbelievable mistake by OHSAA. I wonder if Jimmy Haslam is running the OHSAA along with Sashi Brown. So will there be any more general public tickets to be sold? Infocision and Tom Benson sits dark this weekend and an outsider can't get a ticket to this game. What a shame.

Can anyone confirm if tickets can still be bought pre-sale?

This has not been a well managed post season by the OHSAA. Multiple games could have been set at larger venues and drawn a bigger gate.

My guess is ohsaa did not want to pay big rental fees that Infocision would want. Are any of the other games at sites other than high school stadiums?

I believe it. I noticed when they played Highland that they travel well.

I'm really shocked no one it streaming this one w/ the exception of Spectrum. A lot of people don't have Spectrum and may want to tune into.

Another explanation I heard about Infocision is that since Hoban has played there this year (versus STVM) and Barberton has not, then it is not considered a "neutral" site under OHSAA guidelines. I'm not sure if that is their rule, but it sure sounds dumb enough to be true.

Hmmmm, Tallmadge played at Revere the last week of the season then in round 2 of the playoffs against SVSM, two weeks apart.

Another theory shot down! Oh well, just looking for some logic in the world of OHSAA. With OHSAA, it does make one feel a little like Diogenes in search of an intelligent (as opposed to an honest) man!

It sounds to me like for some reason UA didn't want to host this year. In past years they've had games there even in Week 2 of the playoffs, but none so far this year.

Probably an exclusive rights thing since it is an OHSAA playoff thing.

While it is too bad that there will be people who want to see this game that won't be able to, there is something to be said for this being held at a high school stadium. The atmosphere will be great, it'll be a packed house and raucous crowd. InfoCision can be a little sterile, and although you can fit more people in it, the atmosphere would not be nearly what it's going to be at Green.

Spectrum has exclusive rights to the State playoffs and can lock everyone else out if they desire when it is the game they are doing, so guessing this is why no other streaming.

No bells, horns, sirens or whistles allowed at playoff games. Purple people will be there two hours before gates open. Good luck! Magics by 21!

Interesting. Kent State hasn't hosted in years. Not sure Akron and Kent aren't doing what they can to get people on campus.

This.

They charge a nominal fee to Akron City Schools and an astronomical fee to STVM and Hoban. Of course the crowd size is completely different for the two groups. However problem fans are not usually in the STVM-Hoban crowd.

Not surprised, but with the increased crowd and the fact OHSAA makes all of the money on gate sales, I think they may have been able to offset the cost.

I miss games at KSU Dix Stadium. Saw some great games back in the day there, including Clarett's 400+ yard game versus Ed's.

The OHSAA states based on pre sale of the previous playoff games for Hoban and Barberton round one and two games that they felt That Green (5500) stadium was quite sufficient to handle the projected crowd for this game.
