    True Story: A million years ago in the early '80s, I went to a Texas @ LSU men's basketball game. Texas had a player named Mike Wacker, who was pretty good. Every time he scored, rebounded, fouled, etc. and the announcer said "Wacker", the LSU students yelled "Tally!". LOL. It was funny all night, as LSU beat the Longhorns.

    Moved to Corvallis from Iowa 5 years ago, love it here. A nice college town similar to Ames, but with mountains around it, ocean 40 minutes away, gorgeous vineyards, fantastic micro brews, and waterfalls.

    I've seen Corvallis listed as a "comp" for Ames. I think it was related to the debacle about the mall east of I-35 years ago. But when you describe it, they don't seem very comparable!

    The two towns are similar in the way they look (well-maintained lawns, land grand univ., etc.). The ocean and mountains are what keep me here. OSU also has a fermentation program so the beer, wine, cider, etc. are top-notch.

    That’d be an awfully late announcement

    I meant is that going to be the date of the game not the announcement date? Even better would be in early November around the 11/8 Oregon State home football game vs. Washington or 11/16 home football game vs. Arizona State. A football / Basketball double header trip would be a blast.

    Thanks for update.

    Just assessing the home/road balance. At this point, one true road game for 19-20, B12/SEC site & opponent pending. Iowa and Xavier at home. For 20-21, OSU is home, Iowa on the road, Big East alliance and B12/SEC uncertain. (I'm guessing at least one of those will be away game).

    They will have to be better than predicted and better than last year to be a Q1 game. Q1 road games are against 1-75 NET ranked opponents. Last year OSU finished around 90 and as noted above projected around 84 for next year.

    If they are this bad the following year it could be a Q3 game as Q2 home games are 31-75.
