Hey folks, I wanted to update y'all, thank everyone again for the kind sentiments and welcomes!

So I just recently arrived in Findlay, and I gotta tell ya...
- the restaurants won't let me inside
- the grocery stores are missing some surprising items
- everyone in Ohio is REALLY standoff-ish when I try to say hello and shake hands

What's going on in this place?


Ok seriously though, I am still tying-up some loose ends in Baton Rouge, related to my elderly mother (complicated by the microbes from Wuhan) and her house there. I spent a week in Findlay in mid-March, and I arrived back here in Ohio Tuesday for another week-and-a-half, but I do need to head back to Louisiana in a week or so to oversee a siding repair at the aforementioned house.

I saw the MAC schedules came out, and still looking forward to Football Season. Please, please let it begin on-time, or mostly on-time. I live very, very close to Wilson's, btw. I'm gonna look over this thread again and add some specific replies to certain posts.

Not too far from Wilson's is Cooper Tire's HQ. I did an internship there in the IT shop late in my BG days. Great internship, learned a lot, contributed a lot. I have fond memories of Findlay.

Hey again folks!! Well, I don't need to tell you how strange the last few months were, but I can update y'all with:
- NW Ohio is a fine place to live, with so many wonderful people, great food, and fun things to do
- Bowling Green's stadium and campus is a fun visit/tour, which I enjoyed over the Summer
- the Kewpee Burger in Lima is as good as it gets!
- I love the ease (and lack of crowd) at Toledo Airport
- the Lake Erie coast, particularly around Marblehead Lighthouse, is quite beautiful

So now let me ask this.. is there a way to get me a single ticket or some other way into these games??
BG at Toledo (Nov. 4)
Kent St. at BG (Nov. 10)
Buffalo at BG (Nov. 17)

I'm sure the answer is NO. Uugh!!! But just trying here. If there is a way, wink-wink, I can post my e-mail address and we can discuss off of this board.

Thanks for any suggestions!!

Don’t think they’ve announced any seating availability ( if any) yet. But the 2 games at BG should be possibles I’d think,. The game at Toledo would obviously be the prime MAC game that 1st nite, probably TV’d.

Don't know if it's been mentioned....Toledo sucks...but their museum is first rate. They have a broad collection of classics...some...challenging modern works and a separate building devoted to glass art. NW Ohio was the epicenter for the art glass movement in America so that's worth checking out as well.

Hurry in to see this awesome exhibit...

I used to work at the Museum, so I'm a little partial.... :)

Why yes, I believe it HAS been mentioned that Toledo sucks :D But the Toledo Museum of Art is indeed a very cool place. For a town with a subpar university, Toledo has some great offerings. And there's a high-quality institution of learning just 20 miles or so down I-75.

Unless the MAC and Gov. DeWine move to allow fans at college games, there won't be any attendance or tailgating allowed. I'll be curious to see if things change between the B1G kicking off this weekend and the start of MAC play, but I highly doubt it.

Unless the MAC and Gov. DeWine move to allow fans at college games outside of family of players/coaches, there won't be any attendance or tailgating allowed. I'll be curious to see if things change between the B1G kicking off this weekend and the start of MAC play, but I highly doubt it.

Family of players/coaches along with media, stadium employees, etc. There aren't any public tickets being sold.
