OSU Just Wanted To Help The Blue Jackets

from Steph Greegor of The Other Paper,

It wasn’t exactly what Ohio State University had intended.

When the university offered to take the financial obligation of managing Nationwide Arena off the hands of the financially strapped Blue Jackets, it really was done with altruistic intentions said Xen Riggs, who has managed the Schottenstein Center since its opening in 1998.

“We just wanted to help,” Riggs said. “But our hope is that it will be a community effort.”

It’s the last part of Riggs’ statement, however, where the real truth may lie. Admittedly, the arena deal, struck earlier this year and implemented in May, barely puts a dent in the CBJ’s annual debt, contributing a paltry $1 million bandage to a $12 million hemorrhage. And there are certainly some benefits to OSU in taking over management of Nationwide Arena.

But it’s the notion that someone had to do something that may be the most important aspect of the deal.
