That's the official Alumni Assocn bar, so they do it right. But it will be crowded...always.
Several times with my Brooklyn contingent. I think they only have one projection screen. There will only be a handful of Buckeye fans so the crowd doesn't have the emotion that Manny's or Iron Bar will have. If the crowd is right, and you get there a little early, they will put the Buckeyes on the big screen with sound. The food is OK, the beer selection can be surprisingly nice, but it's hit and miss. The few times I've been there, they had some good craft beers and I stuck with the IPAs.
I have lived here for 13 years. Manny's on Second (upper east side) is the defacto Buckeye bar. You'll still hear some refer to it as Blondies. A little history...Blondies upper west was THE Ohio State bar for many years, then they opened Blondies upper east which became THE Ohio State bar. Something happened about 6-7 years ago and Blondies upper east became Manny's on Second. The official Alumni club has since left for a bigger venue, but it's a great crowd and you avoid the Times Sq scene.
I strongly recommend venturing out of Soho to watch the game. The Soho crowd is not a big football crowd and you won't find a bar with the sound of the game outside of Manny's or Iron Bar. The food at Manny's is very good for just bar food. Waffle fries, burgers, wings, all good and consistent.
Let me know if you need any more recommendations.
Not much I can say to the guy who writes one of two pieces of media I consume without fail every single day with just as much intrigue as the first time I read it. Talent is one thing, being a terrific writer and a genuine trusted media rep to young men and families making incredibly difficult life decisions, that's a completely different level.
Thanks and godspeed.
Bookend linemen...wow those boys are large and quick.
No doubt a response we should expect from Emmitt Smith. As a Giants fan I hated him, but he's one of the good guys.
Whatever happened to the Boom Girl?
You mean its not Hardman?
Makes sense to me, I thought he was a 5 star 3/4 months ago, but now I remember reading that he dropped back to a 4.
Why does the 247 ranking list Ohio St as #1 with two 5 star players, but when you drill down to the list of commits there is only one 5 star player in the detailed class list (Bosa)?

I'm chasing the dragon this year. I never thought we'd get Zeke or Vonn, then Kwon, then Gibson. I'm holding out hope for Hardman...but not holding my breath. Very excited about this class.
I won't say it's a mistake. It's his decision. It is interesting how a recruit could look at a stacked depth chart and join. Might say a lot about his confidence and competitive drive. Or they might have the to recruiting D lineman.
So true. Spring Hurry Ups are reading reserved for the crootin junkies.
Hopefully King is a long term solution! Love his motor and maturity.
Bingo. Great guy and buckeye family.
The 2017 class is going to be unreal. I love any one who commits to the good guys. Will be fun year of Hurry Ups!
Completely agree it's not a disaster. Good thought on the 3 or 4 star guys, who could be great, LJ will get to it. Maybe next year. Lots to be excited for.
OK a DV. The point is we have great recruiters and it's a big time program with a need at that position. Urban has said as much several times. It's strange we can't land a top guy like we have at every other position.
I felt it coming out of last year and now I feel it again. I have faith in our recruits and current D linemen, but its bad that tOSU cannot land a big time recruit here.
Makes sense, a lot of college jobs taken and he can take a year off the NFL and pick his landing spot next year.
Come on Urban, get him!!!!
Some of these guys are more of a DE frame, if they put on weight a move could happen. BTW - Jones is outstanding, and we haven't even seen him since he tore his ACL in high school. But adding at least one big time DE (that hopefully develops quickly) would help a D-line rotation and everyone on the defense would benefit from that.
That can't be right.
I know I'll get a few DVs, but it seems this team took a path to clock out after MSU. Saturday's game will tell the tale of a team with something to prove or if they're lost. Expectations are a #$%@#%!@.
