I wonder how many people have been reading the Dispatch thinking "Hmmm, It really is a little bit smaller".

They do. Newspaper print has gotten really expensive.
In a shrinking market, they are trying to change with the times and cut costs like the rest of us.

Pretty comprehensive article about all the changes at http://www.editorandpublisher.com/Co...Tabloid-Format

Love the quote about "fits in a birdcage".

Love the quote about "fits in a birdcage".
With Mattlund on parole, Blog Rakers has returned.
Dispatch owns Mattlund so this move to a tabloid format that "fits in a birdcage" kinda fits.

Ohio University shuts down for entire day and cancels 7pm basketball game vs. Eastern Michigan because of an off-campus robbery at 9:40am. Something that happens regularly at other campuses and OSU even states:

Balls After Campus Shutdown Due To Armed Robber, Calling It #FugitiveFest
by Bacon 44 mins ago

This morning around 9:20am a robbery occurred in Athens, Ohio. According to Ohio University’s student newspaper, The Post, the university alert system warned its students around 10:00am that an armed fugitive had robbed an apartment and fled towards campus. According to some reports the armed robber made off with $5.

By 11:37am Athens police were no longer actively searching for the suspect but had cleared the initial crime scene. At 12:05pm Vice President for Student Affairs Ryan Lombardi tweeted that Ohio University would be closed for the rest of the day.

Then things escalated.

Ohio University students, who in 2011 raged their way to the title of top party school in the nation, essentially sprinted to the bars on Court Street, which had the good sense to open early and accomodate the students, who no doubt showed up to drink away their anxiety about the still at large Five Dollar Bandit. Students not at the bars are drinking at fraternity houses and off campus residences across the town.

Goddammit I want to be in Athens right now.

Currently Ohio University students are throwing what is no doubt one of the great day rages of the entire academic year while chanting O-U-Oh-Yeah, intoxicated by both tequila and fear (but probably mostly tequila). The student tweets about the rager have been tagged #FugitiveFest as well as #GunDayFunDay, and some local bars are apparently offering $5 pitcher specials, in honor of the victim’s loss.

Rage on Ohio University. Rage on.

Lol so that's what Rob Mixer was talking about. Sigh. Why do bad things happen to good campuses? Wish I were there. Nothing like that ever happened in my four years.

Has anyone done the "backstage pass" before? Should I take something to get signed or is it more of a stay out of the way and watch type of thing?

Hit or miss....The time I went, we got beat bad and players had mandatory meeting or something. We saw some of the other team's players (LA I think), but after 20 minutes waiting on CBJ players, the glad handlers apologized and sent us home.

I wouldn't do it again. They corral you in those temporary fence pens in the area down under the stadium behind the "defend twice" goal.

Yes Except...we actually saw CBJ players on Tunnel of Pride. I guess the difference is that you might score an autograph at the backstage pass if they are in good mood, but if we lose, all bets are off.

Really depends on the game outcome. Some players are super gracious regardless. In our experience Huselius, Vermette, Methot and Boll all signed after a loss while others took a pass.

Don't know about the new guys, but I hope they would.
