As a black athlete, Jesse Owens was not allowed to live on Ohio State's campus. And upon his triumphant return from the Olympics, President Roosevelt refused to congratulate Owens or even shake his hand.

Never forget.

This sums up my feelings perfectly. Some selfish, selfish people.

I'd love to hear about your average day as a recruiting analyst. I know you have another job, but it would be neat to hear about how you schedule your time and how you connect with recruits, Ohio State staff, and other analysts.

Setting aside the source OF the story, and focusing on the source IN the story, he's pretty good; Neal's coach.

But his coach wasn't even there. It's pure conjecture.

You came so close to not making a political statement but then you did and I know it's hard to follow elementary rules but I believe you will do better next time.

To me, this is all about establishing the passing game. If our defense is going to stop MGIII, they need to stay fresh. A fresh defense starts with extended drives from our offense, which will require a somewhat balanced attack. Without a passion game, Wisky can load the box, focus on our rushing attack, limit time of possession, and leave our defense gassed. No pressure, CJ.

No politics, BUT, since you opened the can of worms...

Your comment was great and site appropriate up until your first comma.

If I remember correctly, he deleted his account once Braxton was injured.

Choosing a place to stay hinges on a few things: 1) if you want to be closest to the action, 2) if you want a nicer place to stay, or 3) if you want to sleep on the cheap.

If you want proximity to bars and pools, pick something on Delaware Avenue (The Edgewater Hotel and The Commodore Resort come to mind). As a plus, you'll be within a block of all of the downtown bars. The downside is they won't give you a relaxing stay. The rooms are built cheaply and if you're not running through the halls hollering at 3:00 a.m., someone else will be.

If you want a nicer place to stay, look at cottage rentals and the BayShore Resort. BayShore is less than a five minute walk to the downtown area, every room has a sunrise view of the lake, and the hotel is a little nicer than the party hotels. 

If you don't want to spend a lot on sleeping accommodations, check out South Bass Island State Park. My friends and I spent a bachelor party weekend at the park and it worked out really well. Three nights a the park is less than $100 and, if you call for reservations early, you can get one of the really nice sites on the cliff that overlooks the lake. The downside is that you you'll have to take a cab to get downtown.

My only piece of advice is to show up to the island with a plan. If you want just a crazy party weekend, Put-in-Bay can be that. But the island also offers a few good restaurants, a few wineries, a microbrewery, good scenery, and great history. I grew up in the area, so let me know if you have any questions.
