    What area of town? Anything along high street in the short north is a decent bet.

    If you're looking for haute cuisine, you can't do much better than the Guild House in the Joseph (Le Meridien hotel in the Short North). If you're looking for something else, find a City Barbecue and pig out.

    City Barbecue is garbage! If you want barbecue, gotta go RayRay's.

    Barley’s is always a winner after games in our book:

    Pile High Nachos/Pierogies/Steak/Infinity Grand Cru.

    Can’t go wrong with Ray Ray’s either. It’s a staple and close to The Shoe, so I’ll second that.

    If you’ve never been, I’ll mention Eddie George’s Grille out of respect to the legend. I mean, I don’t have photos of most other restaurants and their menus in the area just because.

    For those unaware, Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck began his boat rowing in Columbus as a graduate assistant under Jim Tressel in 2006.

    Fleck's duties were relatively menial – he served coffee and took the blame for the occasional botched punt protection call – but he got to learn under one of the top coaches in the game, even in a crushing, lopsided loss.


    Florida was leading 24-14 in the second quarter when Ohio State decided to go for it on fourth and 1 from its own 29. There was still plenty of game left, but Fleck was gobsmacked by what Tressel said next over the headset.

    “He said, ‘Boys, if we don’t get this, the game is over,’ ” Fleck recalled.

    Wells was stopped for no gain, and the Gators went on to win 41-14 for the national championship.

    “I never heard Jim Tressel ever say that (before),” Fleck said. “So, I got to see somebody who was the best coach in America do everything always right and still run into a buzzsaw somehow, and we couldn’t do anything about it.”

    Ohio State was where Fleck got his start, so Saturday will be a bit of a homecoming for him, and he'll be dressing for the occasion, paying homage to Tressel with his attire.

    Fleck will wear a tie on the sideline Saturday, a nod, in part, to a mentor he has long admired in Tressel.

    “I learned how you treat people in the profession by watching Jim,” Fleck said. “…Not just when you are coaching. But off the field, watching … his serving and giving and how he treated everybody. When Jim Tressel talked to you, everybody felt important.

    “To work for a guy like that as your first job, that sets the tone for how you live the rest of your coaching life. I’m just really, really blessed that I got a chance to be around special people in my first job.”

    I like Fleck and I love that he's made Minnesota fun for me.

    Line is -29.5 with a 59.5 O/U, which means the bookies see a 45-14 type game. I'd be happy with that score.

    as far as betting this game goes, I would consider taking the first half spread, not the full game.

    You just never know what you are going to get once they start rolling in the 2nd and 3rd stringers.

    Greene took those keys, they weren’t handed to him. Some of my favorite Buckeye memories are of that man running wild.

    I think we should argue about barbecue weather. I say it's too cold to barbecue in Kansas City some months.

    Why not throw in if the series between Ohio State & Texas (2005-2006) was Home & Home or Home & Away.
