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.
