80 thousand 134 showed-up last Saturday for Ohio State’s spring game while over 93 thousand showed-up here last year to watch 34-14 with Jacob Eason getting into the game finally with 10:36 remaining of the 2nd Quarter.
There is no conflict with the Masters and no conflict with stadium renovations. Temperatures are predicted to soar more than double-digits over the normal weather this time of year at 88 degrees under patches of clouds and sun with rain holding-off until Sunday in Athens.
Kirby is making a late push to get us all to come as Spring Games provide a huge impetus to recruiting with commitments on the line for us.
We should see plenty of Jacob Eason vs. Jake Fromm with the ones going against the ones and the twos going against the twos in a break from previous practices. Ideally this should give more showcase to the strong recruiting of the last two years as those guys for the most part have not been seen much and they are what will make any difference from last year’s 8-5.
10-4 is the least minimum acceptable record for Kirby 2017 since we all fully expect that getting to Atlanta and that 14th game is a foregone conclusion returning the starting QB and both Star Running Backs along with returning all but 1 starter on defense. While there are 7 back on offense the ones lost are not expected to any of them be drafted while the ones coming-in are far greater than that by all accounts.
