Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

Success.

no, i'm talking about things like a hall of fame people can check out, statues to players/coaches, displays that commemorate major games/events, green space adjacent to the stadium, other small interactive things that fans can take part in, in and around the stadium that enhance the experience of being there. they're an essential part of pretty much any big time sporting venue.

one of the issues with the schott is that it's so intentionally multi-use that it doesn't do any one thing particularly well. a smaller, intentional football stadium with things like a real concourse, fan experiences, actual seating, etc. i think would do extremely well and keep people coming back over time.

the thing is, aesthetically it could honestly be pretty dope if they had tried to incorporate it into the design more, but instead it just looks like a big boiler room. because i definitely appreciate the craftsmanship there.

replacement and a semi-significant downsize in capacity, like to 85-90k (or even less). i mean, obviously that'd be a multi-year effort just to figure out logistics, but ultimately i think once the 'shoe hits 100 there will be increasing rumblings about doing that, especially if attendance continues to decline. which i think it will.

a lot of us were athletes and enjoy working out; before i broke my collarbone last august, for instance, I was biking 100ish miles a week training for pelotonia, and prior to that I was lifting weights 4 days a week. andy, my dubcast cohost, was/is big into powerlifting, kyle jones played football and i know still does some coaching, jason is in a rec hockey league, etc.

i'll cop to being a pretty huge dork, but a pretty huge dork with an OHP of 175 isn't doing too bad i don't think.
