Nice to see both hockey programs starting to come into their own!  Hopefully both programs can become annual threats to bring home some championships...

It seems almost every athletic program at Ohio State is headed in the right direction except baseball.

I like the "program power" part of the rankings...

It has Ohio State ranked as most powerful program with a 100...  It gives Michigan program power a 80...

I'm sure that will piss off their fanbase!

Totally agree with you about the Evans Farm Development...   I don't think a lot of people know the details about it, but it should be quite a development, but it will definitely add some traffic to that area.

Most consider the rust belt to be mainly in or near the following areas: 

•Erie and Pittsburgh in PA -

•Cleveland, Youngstown and Toledo in OH -

•Detroit and Flint in MI -

•Gary in IN -

•Springfield in IL -

I've seen a few people say that "all of Ohio" is in the rust belt, but most experts agree that Columbus and Cincinnati are not in the rust belt.

Speaking of Buckeye Donuts...  I live by the one on South High, and I want everyone to know about this amazing donut they have there, that if you have a chance to try, you absolutely should...

It's actually called a "Buckeye donut"...  It's a yeast raised ring donut dipped in chocolate and then the middle is filled with a whipped peanut butter cream fluff...  They are amazing. (They're pretty rich, so I recommend having a cold milk with it)

They go fast, but you can always ask them to make one for you if they are out.  Also, the one on campus does NOT have them.  You can only get them at the South High location.

Not that it's really that important...

But I did want to correct the top of the article that says Cuyahoga is the largest county in the state...

Franklin County actually passed Cuyahoga County as the most populous county in the state earlier this year.

• The North Market Tower has been approved and should start being built sometime this year or early 2018.  It will be built in the parking lot next to the North Market.  It will be 35 stories tall.

• Millennial Tower hasn't passed final approval yet,  but is a proposed 28 story mixed use project that will be in the River South area, just down the street from where the Red Zone nightclub used to be.

• The other two high-rises are to be included in a 21 acre development between COSI and the tracks in East Franklinton.  The city took proposals from multiple developers for this plot of land, and now have it narrowed down to two finalists.  When the city gave the guidelines for what they want the developers to put there, it included two 30-35 story residential towers to be accompanied by hotels, restaurants, and around 15 more ten to fifteen story buildings, along with a massive parking garage along the tracks near where spaghetti warehouse is.  The city plans on selecting the winning development team soon and wants construction to begin sometime in early 2018.    This development should add some balance and depth to the skyline by adding some much needed height and mass to the area just west of the river.

Speaking of the plot of land just north of Vine/Goodale...  If you're talking about the the piece of land at the northern corner of Neil and Vine that's been under construction for awhile now... that probably won't ever be opened up for development (at least for new buildings)...  That's actually the spot where the tunnel currently being dug under the city will end.

If you haven't heard, the EPA and the City of Columbus signed an agreement a few years back to better separate sewage and rainwater runoff.  So currently a huge tunnel is being dug under that part of the city.  It is scheduled to be completed sometime this fall.  It's roughly 175 feet underground.  It starts out by Frank Rd and goes under freeways, buildings and even the river.  When complete it will come out at that site at Neil and Vine.   It has taken years to complete because the machine they imported from Germany can only dig at a rate of a few feet a day.

Great pick here...  Athens is a great college town!

Also, I'm glad Columbus and Cincinnati we're not under consideration.  By definition, neither one of those cities are actually "college towns".

Totally agree with Athens winning "Best College Town in State"!
