Stadium “club seats” and YouTube videos

Dear Editor,

Correspondent (Nov/Dec ’12) Brad Betts laments the empty seats of alumni (or not?) who own the club seats on the west side of the stadium, 50 yard line, just below the corporate boxes at the base of what used to be only the press box.  They apparently soon leave for their tailgate parties (or is it to take advantage of the perks served undercover for these high$ donors?).  This must as Brad says take some energy away from the stadium.  Also it seems to me that the pandering to money evident in the “club seats” concept is not becoming of a great state university, though admittedly it is a sign of the times.

Perhaps it is ironic that some years back the OSU Marching Band adopted the practice during many of their half time shows of continually facing their instruments and blowing toward this very west side 50 yard line, even when marching maneuvers were horizontal. Where are the fans who would have the best opportunity to hear this popular band? When I was in the OSU band many years ago it was standard practice to divide the show between the west and east sides of the stadium in order to express appreciation to all ticket holders.

I have to say that this new practice has helped me catch the band’s shows better than ever, even though I live a long distance away. The quality of the picture and sound pickup, not to mention an ideal (somehow) camera location, on some You Tube videos has improved immensely in the last few years.  Lo and behold, I find the band is playing straight to the camera.  It sounds great.  Lucky me.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
