 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The man tasked with figuring out how to keep the financially troubled Blue Jackets in Columbus says a panel is recommending a plan built upon a public and private partnership.   John Rosenberger was tapped to lead the efforts nearly two years ago, shortly after a report commissioned by the Columbus Chamber said the city might have trouble keeping the Blue Jackets because they were losing $12 million a year. The report suggested strengthening the team's finances through options such as new taxes or fees, selling shares to other investors or the general public, or attracting a second major tenant for Nationwide Arena.  The team rents Nationwide Arena from the Nationwide insurance company and other owners for $5 million a year.  Rosenberger was set to release the panel's recommendations Wednesday.

If the Ohio State University won't invest in the Blue Jackets, maybe they should ust borrow some money from the football players.
