    Poor comparison. You want to waste MY tax dollars … I live within my budget and expect MY govt to as well.

    Good idea. Let’s stop building and maintaining the highways!

    If there really was a demand a commercial entity would be stepping up and making an investment in order to make money.

    I don’t see that happening.

    Do you use this mentality when you look at freeways?

    Hell that mentality isn’t often used when people consider sports stadiums.

    The one thing that’s being left out of the conversation BB, is the conditions under which those teams were doing their recruiting. I think it makes a difference when Notre Dame and Alabama were playing for a national title while we had a post season ban and we’re still in the conversation about recruiting classes.

    I don’t think that had anything to do with it, honestly.

    Of those three, Notre Dame got a huge boost because Brian Kelly has finally turned them around (and I think they’ll be even better in 2013). Combine that with their degree value and that they graduate 100% of their black players (93% of their white players, 97% total), they were going to be an absolute force in recruiting. It helped that Stanford took a nosedive. They lost a lot of battles in 2012 to Stanford that they won this year (Randolph in particular).

    Ohio State went UNDEFEATED and has Urban Meyer. They certainly weren’t lacking in things to entice recruits with, which obviously showed in their terrific class. 2014’s class looks to contend with being #1 too.

    Yeah, but this is the Big10, which might as well be Division 2 according to most sportswriters. A coach that can convince these top prospects to come play for OSU instead of going to the “majors” in the SEC is a great recruiter

    So because many of the writers are wrong, you’re going to use that to pour more praise on? No sports writer worth their salt will ever say that Ohio State is inferior to SEC schools.

    howatzer said:In my book, recruiter of the year goes to Bill Obrien and his staff at PSU. Three more years of bans and scholarship sanctions and you still pull in the top quarterback recruit in the country, as well as several others that could have gone anywhere they wanted? They must really want to play for Obrien. period.

    The Breneman recruitment really surprised me. I thought Ohio State and Notre Dame would duke it out for his commitment.

    Yeah, I agree with you. I just don’t think our region (city and state) are at the point where demand is high enough to justify spending the amount of dough it would take to do a project like this.

    The United States’ midwest is one of the best places in the world for such a system to work. It’s flat and the cities are close enough to where HSR makes more sense than both freeways and flying.

    I started a pseudo-Paleo deal eight weeks ago. I’m down twenty pounds. Of course, psuedo-Paleo basically just means I stopped eating horribly unhealthy foods, drinking as much, and tended to stay away from carbs. So basically just common sense. My brother has gone full-blown Paleo and is down 15 pounds in two weeks, the weight is practically falling off of him.

    You’re logic is terrible. So Urban Meyer beat out Alabama for Apple, Bosa, Bell, Elliot, Marshall… so that means Meyer>Saban? No. You can’t look at who is the better recruiter on the basis of who won a recruit or two. You look at the entire class they bring in, year in and year out.

    In terms of recruiting its 1A. Saban and 1B. Meyer.

    Speaking of logic, you’re asserting that Meyer or Saban even do most of the recruiting. They don’t and anyone who actually follows recruiting should know that. The best recruiters in the country? That’d be guys like Ed Orgeron, Tosh Lupoi, Kirby Smart, Luke Fickell, Tony Alford, Greg Mattison, etc. And I think Orgeron and Lupoi are head and shoulders above the rest, but that’s just my opinion.

    And I didn’t use any >/< because such an argument is stupid. My entire post was to contradict the opinion that Meyer is some immortal being given to Ohio State from God himself. Guys with that sorta power don’t lose their own players’ brothers to the likes to Notre Dame. Meyer’s staff is certainly beatable, and a handful of teams had years that were just as good as Ohio State’s. But of course Ohio State fans aren’t known for their humility and grace, are they?

    Also, your*.

    Commentary: Urban Meyer did what Jim Tressel couldn’t
    By Mark Batke
    Published: Thursday, February 7, 2013

    With 24 of the nation’s most sought-after high school football recruits heading to Columbus in the fall to join what was already one of the most promising teams in the nation heading into the 2013 season, I’ll go ahead and say what everyone else is thinking.

    I don’t miss Jim Tressel. Not even a little bit.

    lol.

    Best recruiter in the country? Nick Saban, Brian Kelly, Will Muschamp, et al have staffs that recruit just as well as Urban Meyer’s. Keep in mind that Ohio State lost recruiting battles with Notre Dame (Heuerman, Anzalone, Smith) that they simply got beat for; Heuerman and Smith both have brothers on the team!

    Not saying Urban Meyer isn’t a great coach, but Alabama, Notre Dame, and Florida had a year just as good and arguably better.

    I wonder if the university will use this to expedite their plans to only allow bikes, faculty/staff, and CABS/COTA on campus roads.

    If only that took into account the indirect effect of their policies (energy costs, value of the dollar, etc).

    Can you imagine if the GOP put the RNC in Columbus? 60% of CU’s most frequent writers would man the protest areas. I’d pay to see it. :)

    Could Columbus host a political convention? Sure. My question is, why the heck would you want one here? The disruption to life and local business plus the final bill for all the associated Orwellian crap that passes for security these days isn’t worth all of the headaches and hassle. At least go after something fun and truly meaningful, like the Olympics.

    Please tell me you’re kidding about the Olympics…
