One of the (thousands) of things I miss about Ohio State is the RPAC, which is a wonderland of human advancement opportunities.

All we had when I was there was Larkins Hall, which was effectively a maze-like dungeon with a few free weights strewn about, and that's the way we liked it! Get off of my lawn!

Damn, next year I'll be 36 and I'll be 18 years older than the 18 year olds going to college. Son of a bitch.

Only thing I remember about block O was that I hated being in it freshman year. We called them the "Cheer Nazis" because heaven help you if a big play is going on down on the field and you don't pay attention and put up the right colored card.

I spent 8 years in Gahanna and while it is a suburb and not as urban/walkable as Bexley, GV, or UA. It is a nice area that can be had at a reasonable price. Bexley and UA will be pretty expensive but certain areas of GV are still affordable. Take a look at the Italian Village (east of Short North). It is gentrifying and on the upswing and close to a lot of stuff.

I am sorry I gave that a click. That was one of the worst articles I have ever read. A good troll job gets under your skin, I just read that and thought, "Meh or This is just lazy." I award no points to the author for bringing nothing new and generally wasting everyone's time.

Totally agree. Music is as diverse as it has ever been. Maybe even more so. You just need to make the effort and look.

If you don't mind a walk, I like parking at the Gateway Parking Lot (near Barnes & Noble), that way I can walk through campus or down High Street and Lane Avenue to get to the stadium. You are usually far enough away that traffic isn't too bad. Skull Sessions start two hours before kickoff so I'd get to campus around noon (or earlier) and enjoy the atmosphere and take a leisurely stroll towards St. Johns. There is no official 11W tailgate as far as I know.

I had various senior citizens sit through a couple of my classes when I was at OSU and one of them mentioned this. I thought it was the coolest thing. Usually they just sat back and learned but every once in a while they would drop a truth bomb on the class and really brought a unique perspective to a room full of teens and 20-somethings.

Too true, Phi. I was at an event where I was sat next to Coach Smith. I asked a simple question, "You guys have a lot of talented new wide receivers and H-backs on the team. Anyone or two guys in particular that you are excited about?" He danced around that question like Ali dancing around Liston. He gave a generic, "They are all doing well" or something to that effect.

To be fair, Tress rarely answered a question straight as our coach. It is only a recent occurrence that we have a coach is to mostly transparent in his interviews. Some coaches like to keep things close to their sweatervests.

I'm a big fan of stand up and I've seen him 3 times at various places. First one before he got Tosh.0, fantastic. 2nd one, Tosh.0 was in its first season, good. 3rd one after Tosh.0 was well established, ok. I think the show has made him soft. Because of the show, he doesn't have to constantly be on the road honing his craft, writing and rewriting jokes until they are perfect. It shows in his stand up.

I would love to see him at Rutgers. I doubt it, but it would be nice and would help them secure some other local talent.

Comment 24 Aug 2015

I bet we play some mid level teams to fill in the holes remaining in the schedule but I would love to play West Virginia again or get Tennessee back on the schedule.

Comment 24 Aug 2015

I am an alumni and I have no beef with fans who didn't attend school here. I have beef with fans, alumni or not, who act like idiots and make our fan base and school look bad.

One of my other roommates had a Geo Tracker with the zipped up plastic windows. Is car was broken into almost every weekend. After losing a few CDs he never left anything in his car but found is window unzipped every weekend. At least he didn't have to pay for a new window every time.

Another roommate lost a bunch of clothes when someone broke into our house and took his laundry basket. They threw the DVD player in there too, but he was mostly pissed about losing a bunch of his clothes.

I worked at Taco Bell in high school. I always thought it was humorous when someone in a running outfit would come in and order a taco salad. It was the worst thing for you on the menu. 2,000 plus calories, but sure, its a salad.

***Somewhere in the distance, thousands of burglarized Ohio State students nod wistfully***

Yup. Some crackhead broke into my car for my stereo. A couple weeks later, my car got broken into again, same window smashed, but I had nothing in there but perhaps a dollars worth of grimy old pennies, nickels, and dimes in a cup holder. I hadn't even replaced my stereo but the asshole broke my window and stole loose change.
