    I hadn't realized renovations to Ohio Stadium were behind this. Since they are, I think this is a brilliant move. No better way to sell Ohio State Buckeyes football to Cincinnati and northern Kentucky.

    That totally sucks for the students in the stadium dorm. You would think they would make changes that allowed for the dorms to stay. More bathrooms I say yes. More box seats? F that. There are already too many people there sitting on their hands on Saturdays.

    It is to repair and maintain concrete from the original construction in 1922.

    As far as I know, the stadium dorm program hasn't actually been in the stadium since it was moved for the major renovation at the turn of the millennium.

    If they do a public fall scrimmage in the shoe like Tress did in '06, all would be forgiven.

    They're not, any more than honoring historic teams were the reason behind the alternate uniforms.

    So they are going back and making the original contractor foot the bill? You'd think they'd get more than 90 years out of it.

    I've already posted several times, the NE Ohio media is so pro OSU it's funny. If Urban Meyer sneezes, the media runs a story saying; God bless you:). Trying to bolster our standing in Cincinnati is not a bad idea.

    And the few times I've been in Cincinnatti, I saw more UC, Xavier, and Kentucky shirts than Ohio State.

    Yeah that article was about the original renovation in 98.

    I would guess they didn't do this in 2001 A) Because it wasn't necessary yet and B) Because they only have so much time to get the work done before it's needed for the season.

    I can't say that I have been in Cincy enough to have a real basis for saying so, other than I know a ton of OSU alums in Cincy and when I visit I see plenty of OSU attire. Personal experiences will differ I suppose. And on the opposite end, I always see way more scUM gear when I go to northern Ohio.
