While I would agree that no NCAA, in it's current state and process would be better for college athletics, they probably aren't going anywhere.

What I think will happen here is that all other states will adopt the same, or similar legislation between now and 1.1.2023...OR the Federal government (heaven forbid that they not step in and keep trying to run all of our lives) will enact something like this.  So, the playing field will be level between the states, etc.

This.  Tickets cost too much to be in obstructed view seats in B deck. 

Rather, I opted for a single game where I could pick the seat.

This is precisely why there should not be a poll until about week 5.

It puts those ranked lower, or not ranked at all and have a great season at a disadvantage of having to overcome over-rated teams that happen to be at the top who do not drop as long as they win....regardless of the opponent or closeness of the score.

Saw a sign on a vacant building at the South-West corner of Sawmill Rd and SR 161 that Conrad's is coming there.

Attended both the 1974 and 206 OSU vs Michigan.

1974 - Tom Klaban kicked 4 field goals in a 12 - 10 victory.

2006 - #1 vs #2.

Also, witnessed 2 of the 4 Master's where the winner birdied the 72nd hole to win.  Phil Michelson in 2004 and Mark O'Meara in 1998

IIRC, The Varsity Club absorbed the Venetian pizza and serves pretty much the same pie.

Lums on campus and on Olentangy River Road.....where we had beer with our pastrami while under aged!

You can order Hoggy's at Johnny Buccelli's on Bethel, where their catering operation is.

On Bethel, on the north side of the street, just west of Bethel & Olentangy River Road

I, too watched the NBA in the past...although my past was longer ago than yours!

IMO, the NBA is unwatchable, although not just due to the officiating.  The game that the NBA plays is not basketball, but an individual sport within a team concept.  Way too much dribble, dribble, dribble...take a step back 3 as the shot clock expires.

The officiating takes the suckiness of the game to another level.  Players travel in almost every possession, way too many flops, etc.

Not the same sport that I used to watch.

My kids graduated from WK in '03 and '06.  Left Granby after 1996 school year (end of 5th grade and 2nd grade) as we moved out of the Granby attendance area.  Neither had Chris C as a teacher, but we knew him.

1.  Tate did what was best for him.....period.  To say that it was best for him and Ohio State is way overstating it.

2.  Montgomery Inn is way overrated.

3. Skyline is ok.  Coney dogs are good though.

4. Cincinnati most definitely has a chip on its shoulder when it comes to Columbus.  Same with UC and Ohio State.  I worked there for a while and am so glad I did not move my family there.  That was 25+ years ago and would still be considered an outsider now as I was then.
