That would seem the logical outcome, the bigger pool allows more selectivity. More selectivity ultimately drives the reputation scores up which means national rankings climb and even more students want in. It's a pretty exciting dynamic going forward.

Yeah, one buddy of mine thinks with the amount of applications they've got, they could dip to around 50% ADMISSION RATE and still see a net growth in enrollment this year. That is crazy to consider from where we were two decades ago.

Every Flutie effect study I've seen showed a temporary increase in the quantity of applications but not the quality. Don't expect a bunch of kids with their hearts set on OSU Honors or Michigan to start heading to Clifton. Now, on the positive side, we can lower our acceptance rate substantially without a drop in quality or enrollment (and maybe a slight increase), and that's real and substantial. That will drive rankings and perceptions of quality and desirability among potential students for several years after the actual Flutie Effect has subsided.

It’s kind of sad that a student would choose their university based on the football team, though I suppose having our team play on ABC Saturday afternoon and consistently mentioned with the likes of Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan, and Georgia certainly helps with name recognition.

I wonder how much in-state applications have risen. You gotta think Ohio State is hating every last minute of this.

Bolded, I agree to a large extent. Think back to being 18 years old and how rational our own college, or other life decisions might have been.

My guess is the biggest impact will be among in-state students not planning to attend OSU. So it comes down, in part at least, to visualizing themselves in that Nippert student section vs. mostly empty student bleachers for MACtion on a weeknight. Or choosing an overpriced, middling private school with no football (Any school come to mind?).

I think the other benefit of the national coverage this year has been highlighting the beauty of our campus and this city. GameDay was like a three hour infomercial for UC and our passionate students. Around the country, some viewers were probably shocked to see that we actually have greenspace, LOL.

I went to school based on who would let me play on their tennis team. I don't even like tennis. It all worked out for the best, but most students don't even know what major they want. They just go, because they are "supposed" to go.

OSU will still get theirs--- I would think this has to hurt Miami, UD and XU more. In addition to academics, one of the reasons many kids select a school is residence/campus life. For the life of me I have no idea what a kid does at XU or UD does on the weekend when they don't have football games to attend (I realize UD has non-scholarship football, but non-scholarship football in Ohio might as well be no football). It's not the game itself per se, but having football creates even on and off campus that give the students something to do on the weekends and throughout the week for that matter. My cousin went to Wright State in Dayton. At that school everyone left town for the weekend to go to high school football games/parties or to another college campus that had football.

I very likely wouldn't have come to UC if not for the '08 team that went to the Orange Bowl.

I was in my freshman year at IU, unhappy, and looking for schools to transfer to closer to home. Coming out of high school I never even gave UC a look. Had no idea about co-op. Watching that '08 team play its way into the national conversation was definitely an advertisement for the university as a whole. It no doubt contributed to me enrolling in the Lindner CoB...And the rest is history. Now you all have to deal with my outburts.

UD has an active campus.

Xavier has a small campus, but they're in a big city. There's plenty for them to do nearby. I went to Case (in Cleveland) which is a similar size to Xavier. There was always something to do.

What mystifies me is what students at Ohio or Bowling Green or Marshall do for entertainment. Those towns are teeny-tiny, and the campuses are only medium-sized.

Or even worse, what do students do at small rural schools like Ohio Northern or Valparaiso. Guess they just spend a lot of time drinking?

They are suitcase colleges, where everybody leaves on the weekends.

Athens is a fun little town if you like to make bad decisions or have nasty habits.

Bowling Green is like a place you end up when your car breaks down on the highway at night.

BGSU literally has a section of their website devoted to attempting to bat down the "STD Capital of the World" rumors they've had for the last two decades. Like, their actual institutional website lol.

If you've ever been to OU for Halloween...well...you wouldn't remember it, but I've heard it's fun 03-lmfao

There's a lot of girls at BGSU... they market themselves as one of the top schools for education majors (which happens to attract more females than males). Out of curiosity I looked it up and 57% of the student body on the main campus are women. By comparison UC, OSU, Ohio and Miami are roughly 49-51% female at the main campus.

Went to Halloween in Athens once, I wound up drinking all night and waking up on the floor in the middle of someone's apartment on a pile of people who had similarly just fell to the ground in the last spot they were standing.

Ticket Deadline Update!

Due to the very high demand and the number of applications already in for tickets. Cincinnati Athletics has announced an updated Ticket Application Deadline date of this Friday, December 10 at 5 p.m. Fans looking to purchase within the Cincinnati ticket allotment for the Goodyear Cotton Bowl (December 31) and/or the National Championship game (January 10) must apply for tickets by this Friday.

Fans will be alerted to whether or not they have received Goodyear Cotton Bowl tickets, along with their ticket assignment and quantity, no later than Wednesday, December 15. Please note, this date of confirmation may be earlier, and credit cards will be charged once the seat allocation has been made for the Cotton Bowl. If you are allocated into the Cincinnati ticket block, further instructions on how to obtain your ticket through the Cotton Bowl app will be supplied soon after the notice of allocation.

We appreciate our fans tremendous support of our football program. We hope that by moving up our deadline, we are able to help fans identify additional purchasing options if not allocated through our school's seating block.

Tells me their allotment is either sold out or close to sold out (with people asking for extra beyond their UCats donation).

Did any of these idiots watch any of our games this year? Peirce is our only dynamic threat at wide receiver or tight end? 03-lmfao

Xavier has a small campus, but they're in a big city. There's plenty for them to do nearby. I went to Case (in Cleveland) which is a similar size to Xavier. There was always something to do.

What mystifies me is what students at Ohio or Bowling Green or Marshall do for entertainment. Those towns are teeny-tiny, and the campuses are only medium-sized.

Or even worse, what do students do at small rural schools like Ohio Northern or Valparaiso. Guess they just spend a lot of time drinking?

Alcohol and Sex.

You have my attention...

BGSU literally has a section of their website devoted to attempting to bat down the "STD Capital of the World" rumors they've had for the last two decades. Like, their actual institutional website lol.

If you've ever been to OU for Halloween...well...you wouldn't remember it, but I've heard it's fun 03-lmfao

There's a lot of girls at BGSU... they market themselves as one of the top schools for education majors (which happens to attract more females than males). Out of curiosity I looked it up and 57% of the student body on the main campus are women. By comparison UC, OSU, Ohio and Miami are roughly 49-51% female at the main campus.

Went to Halloween in Athens once, I wound up drinking all night and waking up on the floor in the middle of someone's apartment on a pile of people who had similarly just fell to the ground in the last spot they were standing.
Daughter graduated from OU. Some idiot decided to have Parents weekend on Halloween Weekend. They thought it would reduce problems. Instead it resulted in parents also going to jail.

At the risk of further derailing this thread, Marshall isn’t bad. I received an undergrad there (JD from UC). Huntington is small but I wouldn’t characterize it as “teeny-tiny” and put it in the same camp as Athens. It is a metro area of about 350k and Charleston is close. Would never want to live there, however.
