Went to Indiana and one of my kids was on athletic scholarship at Iowa. But having lived in Columbus near campus for about 20 years now I root for the Buckeyes the most (except when my daughter competed). I do love to cook - and not just BBQ.

Ticket prices are a joke.  I've lived in CBus 21 years and have been to 2 games and both times was the guest of other people.  At one of them Drew Breese played for Purdue - okay that was cool.  I can't even recall the other, we had nice covered seats.  Otherwise I have a hard time understanding forking over that kind of cash.  Hi-def TV and better food and beverages right at home, and I still have money left for a case of nice wine, and my dog sits at my feet.

I completely understand the concerns about the donor-class geezers making the stadium dull.  Hell I sitting with some of them at one of the freebies I copped.

I'm not even an alumni, but I have really come to enjoy 11W though!

I had a diesel VW Jetta. Fun to drive for nearly 100K miles and then VW paid me a ton to buy it back. Went with a Mazda 6 after that. You can get a Mazda 6 optioned out for less than a comparable Accord or Camry and you don't drive the same car as everyone else.

Have to agree with the comments that the recruiting burden falls mostly on the assistants. Also unlike days of yore, they're often flying University airplanes and not even flying commercial. (Or at least the HC is) That's a huge hassle factor avoided right there
