Focused on a Pigskin Ball in a Sea of White

Ohio State football strategists are especially mindful of an unusually big factor in their game at Penn State tomorrow – the size of the Nittany Lions’ crowd and the noise that it makes. The roar from a crowd of 106,000 in a sea of white can be distracting, if you let it be.

“That’s as loud of a stadium (as) I’ve ever heard,” says Ohio State tight end Nick Vannett. “That’s probably the loudest stadium I have ever played in, honestly. “The white everywhere, it can get a little distracting, but as a team, we are going to go in focused and we have an objective and we are going to come out and hopefully beat them.”

This is just a weekend reminder of the essence of a focused approach to successful communication - an aim, awareness of whatever distractions may exist, steadfastness and keeping your eye on the ball – the objective. 

The last time Ohio State played Penn State at Beaver Stadium, the Buckeyes won, 35-23, despite the noise.
