I wish the local radio station could broadcast the Buckeyes early games in Florida. I really enjoy listing to Frank Fraas and Marty Bannister doing the games during the season. I would guess it is a money thing with the station not having the resources or sponsorship. It sure would be nice to be able to listen to the games and not have to use Gametracker to follow the games.
