Traffic near the stadium on game days is nuts.  Traffic and parking likes to get cute and shut down certain roads, so it funnels more cars to the same routes.  Uber, a cab, or a bus will be your friend, but give yourself plenty of time.  If you decide to drive, parking starts at $15 and the price goes up the closer you get to the stadium, and inside of 2 hours pregame it can be difficult to find a spot.  You'll want to be in your seat 30 minutes prior to kick in order to catch the band's tunnel entrance.

Whilst I won't endorse booing Ohio State, there are an awful lot of people that have fought, and died for your right to say whatever the hell you want.

Samsungs have more color saturation, but due to the vibrance, can look less natural.  Sony's and LG's have more of a natural color replication, but I'd recommend going to best buy and seeing side by side to determine what color replication you prefer.  I'd also recommend examining the finish of the screen i.e. most samsungs are highly reflective, whereas Sony and some LG's have more of a matte finish.  If you have glare in your room, this can be an issue.  Take Tress' advice and get a Roku 3 instead of a tv with hyped smart options.  Roku is (imho) the most ubiquitous device for streaming, it can be updated, and via Plex you can install some Kodi esque streaming channels if you're looking to cut cable.  If you like cable, Roku's can also be used as a time warner cable box instead of paying for a rental p.o.s.  They're 90 bucks max, often cheaper, and have more ability than what you'll get with a smart tv.

Stick with the main brands, and IF you have to buy from Walmart, be mindful of model numbers.  Find the best picture YOU like.  4k, 3d, are all fine and dandy, but that's if you use them.  Crutchfield.com is a wonderful site for reviews, but if you prefer people, check out a Magnolia corner in a Best buy store (there's one in the Tuttle Rd Best buy of Cbus) and they'll help you with any questions you could possibly have.  Good Luck!

Take advantage of your route, and get some weed out courses out of the way at a branch or community college.  Many students take chem and calc at Columbus state to save money and stress.  Whatever your path becomes, best of luck to you!

Burger:  Thurmans is the top dog.  Bernards is second, and the Pint House in Dublin has a tasty third place.

Pizza: Adriaticos if you like the Sicilian style, Mama Mimi's if you like take and bake thin, Enricos if you like small town grease style, and the best chain IMO is Pie n Pints Italian style.

Steak:  Ruths Chris has an awesome butter, salt and pepper ribeye, Hyde park if well seasoned is your thing, The Top if you like a traditional cut, and the Blue Dube if you're hungry for steak and eggs after a game.

Put the Stadium Dorm back.  Build it under\over the south stands with a cafeteria overlooking the field.  It'd be great to have that for the students again - since they were displaced by the luxury boxes.

Put up the concrete garland.

I'm against wifi - watch the game, enjoy the game, scream...have a good time at the game instead of telling everyone you're having a good time at the game.  Why pay money to sit in the shoe only to play on your mobile?  Shouldn't you be cheering?!!

I'm way too Italian to allow cinnamon near tomato sauce.  French toast, cinnamon rolls, apple pie, and strippers...are just about the only things where cinnamon is applicable.

Eat Pineapple...lots of it...it's like candy there...You'll wonder why they're selling it for 50 bucks in the airport when you arrive, but by the time you leave, you'll be wanting to ship it to your house at any cost....

Congratulations on the nuptials!  Don't worry about finding good things to do in Hawaii, they'll find you...

My best friend (6'3") and her husband (6'10") have a son who just finished kindergarten.  He's 5 feet tall, and turns six in June.  If anyone knows how to form an IPO so I can have stock options in a future athlete, let me know.  Rest assured everyone, he's properly groomed to be a Buckeye.

Agreed on Boren, he'll go to a scheme blocking team. He's the mold of a Kory Lichtenstieger.

First, determine the size you need.  You can manipulate many things on a grill, but you can't add size.  After that, the rest isn't so bad.  Webers are great, but pricey.  They, and others, are great because they cook evenly.  The good news is you can make any gas grill cook better than a weber by buying grillgrates.  My 10 year old grill with 4 burners from Walmart I would take over the best holland or weber any day due to those grates.  They are a game changer.

http://amazingribs.com/bbq_equipment_reviews_ratings/ - and the rest of that site will tell you anything you want to know about grills, smokers, thermodynamics of cooking, thermometers...it's information overload.  The biggest recommendation I'd make for a gas grill is to get something with a number of individual burners, not just one large horizontal burner.  Being able to control the temperature is tantamount to the best results.  Having 4 burners for example, allows you to heat one side, and cook indirectly on the other avoiding flare ups on items such as brats.  Look to spend over $200 as a starting point, and you'll see the better construction come into play vs the lower end items which inevitably will rust.
