To boo or not to boo, a SOLUTION?

So after skimming the plethora of comments regarding booing in the skull session, I see there are varying view points on what to do. 

MY SOLUTION: Stay to sing Carmen Ohio.

Whether you boo or not stay and let the team know that we still support and love our buckeyes, through good times and bad, by staying to sing Carmen Ohio. Regardless of the score or performance (good or bad), don't leave the game early. You want to boo during the game? Thats fine, but stay and sing Carmen Ohio. I have been to nearly 25 games and have never left before singing Carmen Ohio, even if it was a blowout. I still tear up everytime too. Not because of my love for football but because of my love for the University and all the memories I have associated with it. The singing of OUR Alma Mater is something truly special and even if the Boo's reign down, we can show our unwaivering support by remaining in the stands.

Knowing for sure that your fanbase has your back no matter what is something special. So, let them know by refusing to bail early and stay for the singing of Carmen Ohio. I think doing this could solve everyones concerns.

Fantastic. GO BUCKS!

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

That sounds like the perfect solution to me. Or what about chanting "Boooooollman-Boooooollman" whenever there's a three-and-out? Then, stay for Carmen Ohio.

Because we couldn't go for three.

I was there Saturday, and even though the fair-weathers abandoned the team with 5:00 to play, the majority of the rest of the stands stayed until Carmen Ohio was over.

This is the exact way to be. Sing Carmen with the team, win or lose!  I love my alma mater, and the song always gets me, so I have to stay.  Go Bucks!

I am constantly surprised at the 10 percent who leave at the very beginning of the 4th quarter. After paying so much for those tickets what the hell is so important that you need to leave with 1/4 of the game left to be played.

Walrusman-"Coach? Are they booing me?

Fickell-"No, Jim, they are saying Boooo-lllman"

Walrusman to coach-"Are you saying Booo or Boooo-lllman?"

Lone fan-"I was saying "Boooo-lman"

Bollman needs more then Booing.... Try fired at half time!  I have been to over 75 home games and left early.  I am a lesser fan for it. No. I had a 3.5 hour drive home and would rather get a head start versus watching dingle berry bollman call another off tackle run on 3rd and 10 with 9 men in the box. What a joke!
