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.

Liar Liar: "The g. d. pen is blue"

"Well, that's because you have big jugs...I mean...I wanna squeeze 'em...I mean...Mama....."

"I've had better"

Naked Gun: "Nice Beaver!" "Thanks, I just had it stuffed"

Blues Brothers: "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've gotta a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses....hit it!"

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.

If you can't pick it, grow it, or kill it, don't eat it.  LC's are low cal, but they're usually packed with sodium\salt.  If you choose to have those, a good rule of thumb is to make sure the ratio of fat calories to calories on the label is below 1/3 e.g. The glazed chicken has 45 calories from fat, but an overall total of 245 calories, ...so it's fine from a fat content standpoint, but the sodium content can make you crave more food than you need.  Nutrition (imho) is more important than counting calories, but you also don't want your body to go into starvation mode (starving can cause your body to store anything you consume straight to your fat stores and rob your muscles of protein) so paying attention to calories can help there.  There are several calculators (http://www.freedieting.com/tools/calorie_calculator.htm) on the internet for what you should consume calorically in a day, and I'd recommend a deficit of no more than 600 calories from your recommended intake for fat loss.  I'm 6' and 205, so my maintenance calorie recommendation is 2700 a day, with 2250 as the recommended for fat loss.  That's a steady approach to fat loss from the caloric side.  A good structure to follow is to reduce carbs from your diet, increase your protein and good fat content.  The carbs you do eat, consume in the morning or at lunch. Decrease carb intake during the day, and increase protein intake over the day.  Good carbs in order of best descending: Green leafy vegetables, fibrous vegetables, fruits, red potatoes, brown rice.  Eat leaner proteins: chicken, turkey, fish, beans. 

Final word on diets...you need 2.  One as a plan to get you to the weight you desire.  The second and far more important one is the maintenance diet eating plan to follow once you've achieved your weight.  The DASH eating plan is a good example, or the perfect health diet.

Glutamine will help.  You'll still feel a bit stiff, but the aching soreness is curbed tremendously taking glutamine before a workout.  Once you get used to HIIT, over a month or so, it lessens.  Are you drinking water, or BCAAs during your workout?  Hydration can really help curb soreness as well.
