10:38 AM ET 09.01 | With high humidity, a blazing sun and a temperature that peaked at 87 degrees at 2 p.m., those who care for the sick and injured at Ohio Stadium knew yesterday was going to be busy. And it was. They treated about 160 people, most for heat-related issues. The American Red Cross has provided first aid during Ohio State football games for decades. Yesterday, 50 volunteers were dispatched across the six first-aid rooms inside the stadium. They arrived at 7:15 a.m. to set up and prepare for what they correctly predicted would be a crush of heat-related health issues. "It might be 85 degrees outside, but with 100,000 people sitting next to you, it's much hotter," said Evan Derr, the Red Cross' director of the stadium operation.

Daytime games in August are brutal. It was 106 yesterday in Texas. It makes more sense to play at night until the temps cool off in mid-Sept.

The great unwashed:) If the team had pulled off 2-point conversions against a Big Ten team I would have smiled. But against Buffalo, who only was there for a big payday, a little low class.

Weather hotter than the team. Watched most of the game. If they play like that at Northwestern they'll get thumped.

Harley, your guys are wimps. It was 100 here for kick off at the HS game Friday night. No one treated for anything...well, maybe stupidity for being out in it.

Mind your own beeswax. Your team is hosting the Domers next Saturday. And TSUN better not embarrass the B1G. The credibility gap is already as wide as the Grand Canyon. Good luck.

This is twice I've seen your snarky comments on the 2-pt. conversions. Re: NCAAF Message Boards/ "Tin Man's In-Game Posting Thread"/comments #s 85, 91.

As WAMU would say: "Want some cheese with that whine?"

Quash Quad. I guess the season has finally gotten underway. Sheesh.

You just score a TD in the first quarter, against Buffalo you know you can score at will and, unless your kicker is hurt, you go for two. So my neighbor, why? Twice.

See what I mean Harley?
Guy comes on here and expresses his HONEST OPINION and you jump down his throat because you disagree with it. But Buckeye fans aren't overly sensitive?

Explain to me- both you and Shiprock- WHY you would consider going for two-point conversions to be an act of "low class," and thus label UFM (in Van's words) a "prickk." Honestly, gentlemen, what I can't fathom is your posturing and righteous indignation about ANY coach going for a two-point conversion...after ANY TD of ANY game. It's football, for Pete's sake! It's legal! It's WITHIN THE RULES. Are you going to tell me that there's an unwritten "Gentlemen's Rule" that prohibits said use of a 2-pt conversion in a game unless it's an act of desperation or an attempt to make up for a missed PAT? That's nonsensical!

You well know that deciding on going for two cuts both ways; it's a bigger risk in that it would grab you a lead against a team kicking a conventional PAT, yet would put you behind if the 2-pt. conversion fails. IF the Bucks had failed on either of the 2-pt. conversions, UFM/tOSU would've been derided for taking the risk to begin with. Both conversions were successful, and so now comes the disdain anyway. All this for exercising a scoring option that has risk/reward attached to it.

UFM and tOSU are in a damned if you do or don't proposition from what I can tell. I'm of the belief that if 2-pt. conversions were attempted by ANY other teams in CFB during the course of a typical season that nobody would raise an eyebrow about its employment, except to perhaps make note of it as either being a gutsy or foolish call in the context of the final outcome. But for UFM/tOSU to attempt it? Against the University of Buffalo? OMG, they're bullies, they're thugs, they have no sense of sportsmanship, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.

So, yeah, I get a little testy when I see commentary or arguments that are not persuasive and logical and instead unfairly disparage the school that I root for. And that, Sir, is my HONEST OPINION as well. Let me also add that I'm not drinking and Scarlet and Gray Kool Aid on this subject. Go out and talk to football coaches who've been there and done that. Pick their brains about the subject; don't take my word for it. I'm overly sensitive anyway. FINI

Your words and exactly what I meant. You just made my case. But it's not usual for a 1st touchdown at the start of the game to go for two. I felt ' they have no sense of sportsmanship', again your words.

Colorado State making a game of it now, FYI, go watch the game :)
