I know your area (SE NC) quite well - Wilmington although a small city has a horrible sprawl problem... I haved lived all over the "land of sprawl" (ATL, CLT, RDU, JAX). Columbus can't even touch these areas and their growth issues...

YES! I forgot about this.

1. The Buckeyes football annoys me to tears.

2. Cookie cutter suburbs.

3. Entire streets of abandoned restaurants(161 east)

4. The weather(I like rain and cloudy days, just not 10 degree weather)

5. People in the suburbs that do not like alternative people.

This is funny. Some of y'all talk of sprawl and traffic issues in Columubus? What a joke! That city doesn't even compare to Nashville, Dallas, Atlanta, etc. That's probably one of the only things I miss about Columbus

Don't even get me started about the OSU stuff. I'm so glad to be in another part of the country, turn on the local sports tv station, and actually hear about other sports going on!

You said it - in the suburb of Atlanta that I lived in there were Bull "Dawgs" everywhere! The Buckeyes are just a bunch of nuts.

I've learned to ignore them all ... it's all fun & games anyway!

Not to stray too far off topic, but the fans are what makes me hate the team.

Where else do you make national news coverage for flipping cars and burning couches on campus and that is win or lose.
