Depends a lot on your age and what you are trying to do while here. Short North, as stated, is a very common area for nightlife. If you are trying to meet girls then the Park Street area would probably be best. Just don't go all El Guapo while there. Arena District is also very fun to hang out around. German Village/Brewery District is more for casual drinking.
I still don't understand this rule all that much. There was always a rule in football a player could be ejected for deliberately targeting a player (i.e. blowing up someone one a punt return before they had the ball). Why not just keep it the same way and if a ball is way over thrown and a receiver has given up on the play and a safety comes and spears him that they can be ejected. It shouldn't be used for bang bang plays as you already have a penalty in place for that.
Jayln Holmes could very easily enter this discussion. While the D-Line is loaded with talent I could see him making the two-deep and seeing some playing time. He looked very good in some of all American game highlights.
Being in summer practice for THE Ohio State University at the age of 16 is remarkable. A year of growth and learning the offense and this kid could be very special.
I feel like far too many people are sleeping on Jalin Marshall. He is as electric as Curtis Samuel except Marshall has a year of practice and Mariotti training under his belt. I think he is going to be a major weapon on offense this year.
You must not be an 11w's premium member... free tickets all around.
Really though I went to the most games I've ever been to last season (also my first living in Columbus so that helped) but I mainly got tickets through Craigslist or just scalping them when I was down there. However, if you are really wanting to support the school then do as the others in the thread have stated.
Don't sleep on the 9/27 matchup against Cincinnati. While I think OSU should win that is another team that will win some games next year. I could easily seem them finish with 8-10 wins in 2014 and is a good addition to the schedule.
While I somewhat agree that weekday games work themselves out in certain circumstances, there is a big difference between Thursday and Friday. Thursday you are not going to have a lot of other activities going on as you will on Friday (i.e. other high school games) that normal football fans are going to be participating in. I simply think smaller conferences should use Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday for games to help boost their programs; Friday should be kept for high school; Saturday for college and Sunday for NFL. To each their own I suppose but as I am about to leave my office in Columbus I already know I have about a 30 minute commute and that is without 100,000 people driving into my neighborhood.
I too mentioned this in the Buckshot. But on top of this, I live about 5 minutes from Ohio Stadium and think it would be a struggle to get to a 7:30 kickoff. Between leaving work around 5:00, fighting the traffic home then fighting the traffic to the stadium I would be lucky to get to the stadium before 7. So not only would out of town opponents struggle but actually people who live in Columbus would be difficult to get into a game by kickoff.
Personally not a fan. First it sucks for recruiting because kids generally play Friday night. Sure it would be nice for tv purposes but I don't think the numbers are going to be as strong for a Friday game as they are for Thursday games. Also the logistics of it will be a mess. Try going to an opposing stadium for a Friday game. Heck I live about five minutes from ohio stadium and between getting off work at 5 and trying to get close to the stadium I would be lucky to get 30 minutes of tailgating in before heading in to the game.
Taco Bell Breakfast.... For when you really want to call in sick to work.
Does anyone think this is going to cause more defensive "too many men on the field" penalties than offensive delay of game (which I agree doesn't make any sense to call it that)? Ohio State usually snaps the ball after 10 seconds but if you give defenses the time to substitute it usually takes more than 10 seconds to get them out their and in position. If I was a D-Coordinator I would keep it as it is right now and I wouldn't sub unless its needed. Teams are going to need to practice hockey like line changes if they want to sub under this rule.
Be careful when you do a twitter search for Big Nut. You may come across some results you are not intending.
That .gif of Pete Carroll will never not be funny. Also I actually would have been okay with any of these coaches. Don't get me wrong I think Urban is the cream of this crop but there are no misses when it comes to these guys.
I am an Other. I am not a big fan of paying to watch the Spring game for the sole purpose of paying. However, I would have no problem if it was a small fee ($5.00) or the option to bring can goods for a local food bank or charity (also the $5.00 would go to the charity). We used to do this for our scrimmages in high school and it would work out well. Imagine how great it could be if the university backed it and had student groups lead the charge in bringing in the most food for those in need. Still 10 bucks isn't too bad for the games.
I didn't follow Michigan's recruiting much but is there a reason they only took 16 players? That seems very low. Also I would have to say they had one of the biggest falloffs in recruiting since they were on track to be a consensus top 10 and maybe top 5 then it seemed like they kept missing.
I have always said if the Big 12 was smart they would invite Cincy to join. Geographically it makes sense now that they have WVU in the conference and it would get them into Ohio for recruiting while adding a pretty good school and a fairly large TV market.
also love the new digs.
From the tone of his comments on Ash and the defensive backfield I would fully expect to see a far more aggressive play calling on the defensive side this year.
Jim Delany right now.
*Ron Franklin, if I am not mistaken
That is fantastic.
