Use to go down to High Street all the time. Ran into Joe Walsh and Nick Nolte once. Use to go down to the place called the Algora, where you could see alot of various old time bands (Steppenwolf, etc). I also went to quite a few of the frat parties back then (especially during game week). Yes, there was alot of partying going on, people getting rowdy, and some going nuts - but not once did I feel threatened, nor have to wear body armour. And I wasn't a student, nor alumni either.
What you are saying/describing, as far as attitude/behavior, can be said by a majority of colleges. OSU is no different, nor worse. We could all sight examples on a consistent basis where this kind of stuff goes on all over the place - Wisconsin, Michigan, LSU, Ohio University...you name the college campus.
As one from the older generation I don't condone it, and even look down upon it... but to try and single out OSU as one of the worst -that is simply your opinion, and maybe you had a bad experience or something. But it's not the rule.
