The reason January has been horrible for the Buckeyes

11W, I'm afraid Ohio State athletics are under some sort of course. Even worse, I'm afraid that I'm the causing of this curse! Growing up a Buckeye fan in Southern California, it was hard to attend Ohio State athletic events in my earlier years. Before January 3rd (the day I moved to Columbus to start school at The Ohio State University), I had attended three Ohio State sporting events in my life. Those three events were as follows:

January 8th, 2007: Ohio State vs. Florida (football)

September 13th, 2008: Ohio State vs. USC (football)

March 30th, 2013: Ohio State vs. Wichita State (basketball)

As we all unfortunately know, Ohio State lost all three of those important games. Now, before moving to Columbus I merely thought it was coincidence, but now I am convinced I'm cursed. Since moving here and starting school, Ohio State is 0-1 in football, and 1-4 in basketball, which is unheard of in recent years for both of our sports to be struggling so much at the same time!

In short, I am sorry. I am at fault for this horrible month in Ohio State sports. Here's to beginning to break the curse tonight against Illinois.


Side note: I'm mostly kidding about me being a curse to Ohio State sports, though I do find this to be both coincidental and unlucky.

I blame you for the men's volleyball team getting destroyed at the invitational while losing to Hawaii, Penn State and UCLA a few weeks ago.
Go away.

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Don't forget losing the series to Minnesota in hockey.

On the bright side, at least you moved after the BIG championship game. Is that a bright side? For you, I think so.

It's possible that losses can occur without your influence, since we now know that victory is possible with you in Columbus!!  
Do Well & Enjoy your time at The Ohio State University!!

I'm taking a wait and see attitude with this guy, but my first impression is not too good..

Fear not Jake; it's the S. I. covers. They never leave a Buckeye his entire life. Just check out the last 58 years and you will find this to be true. Not one Buckeye has escaped in that time period. GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

Thank God.  I thought it was my fault for changing jerseys.

I thought it was because I have been slipping laxatives in all the sports teams gatorade before all their games.

One of the happiest days in my Buckeye history occurred in January. 1.3.03.
Good things do come in January.

I was going to blame it on the polar vortex.
You went ahead and ruined that too, thanks.
