I saw a skunkbear with a blue helmet in his hand

Walkin' out of the Horseshoe in pain

He was lookin' at the scoreboard at the game

Not gonna get a chance to win again

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Aaahoo!

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Aaahoo!

Ya see him in a tent in your living room

Wonder why you let him in

Jimmy had a sleep over again last night

Skunkbears are losing again

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Aaahoo!

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Aaahoo!

He's a crazy tree climber, who’s no longer a Niner

Lately he's been losing in Ann Arbor

They gonna stay with Jim

Untill they get sick of him

Huh, and then he’ll be a failure

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Aaahoo!

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Aaahoo!

Well, I saw a five star walkin' with Meyer

Doin' the werewolves of Columbus

Another five star walkin' with Meyer

Doin' the werewolves of Columbus

Was the pickle squirting?

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Draw blood

Aaahoo! Werewolves of Columbus

Spy Museum is nice but cost money. Air and pace is a good visit, as is a walk along the mall. 

Arlington is interesting, especially if you tie some of the graves to the history of the veteran buried there, as well as how Arlington came to be; don't miss the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns. If the Nats are in town a game is an easy Blue to Green Metro ride (except for Safe Tracking and shutdown at midnight). If your on the Mall, avoid the restaurants in the museums and go to a food truck or any of the restuarants just off the Mall on the north side. If you want fast and cheap there's a McD's just south of the Mall east of the L'Enfant Plaza Metro stop.

Take a tour of the Capitol. The American history museam is interesting, lots of cool trains, cars and Americana. Check to see if there are any free concerts while you are there; but the Mall is packed on the 4th.

If you Metro, get a card to avoid the $1/trip paper ticket surcharge, plus right now the Metro Cards are a special anniversary card. Also, remember on the Metro:

Stand Right, Walk Left and don't block the doors.

While I agree with you on the relative importance of experience of the QB vs a DT; at some point inexperience at several positions will hurt you. No matter how great the QB is, breakdowns in coverage, blocking, and route running are hard to overcome. Am I worried bout our team? Not really, because the talent is there so if they can avoid mistakes we should be alright.

I hear that it is so reliable students often check the time on their cell phones to make sure it's in synch with said dial*

*that last part may be slightly untrue, or may even be entirely fiction out of my own little pea brain.

Everything you read on the internet is true, Einstein said so.

I've known a number of Aggies and they were all good people...

Shoot, Buckeyes are Aggies as well, as I pointed out to an Austin sportswriter when we played UT in Austin; warning him UT could lose to Aggies 2x in the same year. He responded that people would be jumping off of bridges if that happened...

To make the counter argument, only a couple of sports make money  so why support the money losing ones instead of funneling more to academics?

While I am a big supporter of athletics at tOSU, if you are making an argument that a school should focus on academics then the question then becomes why have athletics at all since it detracts from the academic environment. That was the argument Hutchins made which, while I disagree with it, was certainly impactful and still felt today.

As for ROI, if the University decides to sell advertising, a move I would hope they wouldn't, the ROI would probably compare favorably with athletics.

You could make the same argument about athletic facility upgrades, adding a bar to the student union, or even building a nice building for a department instead of something in a 1960 government modern style. Having an interesting campus may help draw students and faculty and make tOSU a nicer place to go to school; while a clock tower is certainly a nice to have, having a way to show PSA's in a central location that students are aware of is not a bad use of space either.

If it leans like in the rendering we may even be rival Pisa for tower fame. Of course, that's until Monaghan builds a bigger one, with more lean, at TSUN that becomes known as the "Leaning Tower of Pizza..."

I'm here all week folks. Try the veal, it's great and don't forget to tip your waitress...

Yes, I believe the minimum beer consumption requirement will be 21 beers...

Drink to the foam and all that...

I would guess it's people's concerns over the quality of work and getting things fixed after final payment. I've never had an issue with contractors (except one) but there are a lot of horror stories.  I've also heard horror stories from friends who are contractors who have customer's who'd withheld thousands of dollars in payments until a few hundred dollars worth of repairs were done. I can understand holding back enough to cover repairs / fixing problems but you need to be reasonable as well. I've also been on the other side, it took me two years to get payment from a company who agreed they owed me the money but simply kept not paying.
