From the Editor: Falling for October

This is going to be a great month. Sweaters, jackets and tights come out of hiding. My office mates are sipping their pumpkin-flavored lattes. Central Ohio weather hits that fleeting moment between hot and freezing cold, when it’s just cool enough to rosy up the cheeks, but warm enough to play another round of touch football on a Saturday afternoon (provided no one else is playing tackle football, that is). This issue of Columbus Monthly also tells me it’ll be a great month to be in this city, trying to pick and choose what to do. Because, believe me, it can’t all be done.

Cardale Jones and the Fame Game

What happens when a 22-year-old quarterback steps from the shadows of backup territory to lead his team to a national championship? He wins the adulation of rabid Buckeye Nation fans, of course. He might also be tempted to veer off a course to maturity and humility set years ago by a mentor, a mother and, more recently, some of the best coaches in the business. But people close to Cardale Jones are optimistic he’ll handle it all with grace under pressure.
