Today's Dispatch features a piece by Rob Oller about how fans generally fear the big upset and wile away their days by fretting over the big stumble.
Ohio State fans fear the shocker. They believe the Buckeyes are by far the better team but also consider the slim chance that the world will end at about 6:30 p.m. with an Illini upset. Anyone want a $12 Michigan ticket?
It's fair to say that those that blog, no matter the topic, tend to be evangelist types (no, not those types). But I have yet to talk to a Buckeye fan of any stripe this season that is anything but over-confident. Perhaps this is Rob's way of doing his part to keep the players focused on the task at-hand, but I don't think that's necessary with the Vest at the helm.
