I agree with the above posts.  I'm just getting so frustrated with the defense.  I like the newer press coverage, but tired of watching the DB's and Safety's not even turning their heads to look for the ball, and getting called for pass interference all the time.  Needless to say, we're getting gashed by the opposing team's running backs.  I'd just like to see a proven commodity as DC.  I've tried to be patient with Fickell.  I respect his OSU roots, loyalty, etc....The fact is just that he's not getting the job done.  Urban always talks about accountability, and that should go for Fickell.  This isn't a "Fire Fickell" thread.  I just think a guy like Muschamp would be a huge upgrade on the defensive side of the ball.  Maybe he and UFM could mend the fences.  It would be a nice way for him to build back his confidence, national stature, etc... if he would turn around the OSU defense.  There are plenty of former head coaches who have taken coordinator positions.

No rules on how you are supposed to enjoy your game experience at The Shoe.  I've taken my 80+ year old father to many games.  He's just not going to scream the whole game, yet he totally enjoys the game experience.  I've also had 20 year old, drunk idiots sitting behind me, screaming the whole time, not even knowing the situation of the game(dropping their mustard hot dogs on me, their girlfriend barfing, etc...).  The shoe is plenty loud.  Let people enjoy the game as they choose.

Don't just blame the brokers.  They're getting their tickets from OSU season ticket holders.  They sell at a profit, the broker then sells for even more, etc.....If the original owners of the tickets didn't sell, you wouldn't see the escalation of the prices on the secondary market.  The corporate owners of the club seats aren't selling the seats.  They're giving them to clients, etc... In fact, on Stub Hub, there usually aren't many seats for sale in the Club Seats.

Nothing wrong with Ruth's Chris, but he can go to the one in Columbus.  Better he tries something more unique to Chicago!

P.S.  I live in Chicago.  These are all places where the locals also eat.  

I'd stay clear of the hotel chain steakhouses like Shula's(in the Sheraton), or Michael Jordan's Steakhouse(in the InterContinental Hotel).

Forgot to mention Benny's Chop House(near Nordstrom's).  Also very good.

If you're looking for a steakhouse, I'd recommend going the area around Rush/State St.  It's referred to as the "Viagra Triangle."  Gibson's is very popular and has good food.  Across the street is Tavern on Rush, that has great steaks but a much more varied menu.  At Tavern, ask for Bennie(dining room manager), and he'll make your evening special.  Morton's is also across the street. You can eat inside or outside at any of these places. It's a great area, just a block off the Mag Mile.  It's a great place to walk around before or after dinner.  A lot of places to shop, or bars and clubs if you're interested after dinner.

Another highly rated steak restaurant is Çhicago Cut Steakhouse.  It's located on the Chicago river at LaSalle.  If the weather is nice, great place to also eat outside.  Another great steakhouse is Mastro's.

You can't go wrong at any of these places.  Let us know which one you picked and what you thought.

You mean you're not happy with "The Bricklayer"(aka Lenzelle Smith)?  Pathetic last night!

Was driving through Indy today.  Their radio stations saying that Larry Bird really likes Turner.  Stephenson supposedly want a "max type" contract.  They're saying that Turner is some insurance if Stephenson leaves, or least they can use Turner as leverage in negotiations with Stephenson.  Great deal for Turner to go from the pits in Philly to a contending team.  Hope he makes the most of this opportunity.
