Of course my situation is a bit different, seeing as I live in Michigan, but I have encountered some OSU fans here that are downright incorgible. I should start this off by saying that the vast majority of the people that I meet that are from The Great State of Ohio, as myself, are the friendliest folk I meet up here. I saw a guy over the weekend that was wearing a shirt with a big image of Brutus on it and I had on my Block-O shirt. I gave him a thumbs up and said "nice shirt" and he looked at me like I bathed in dog feces. Ran into a guy on another occasion and he was wearing OSU gear. Asked him what he thought about this years team and he tells me "I'm not an OSU fan" and that it was "just a shirt he had lying around"...just happens to have and OSU shirt laying around in this state that he decided to wear out in public.
Maybe I'm just too into this rivalry..i dunno
