Thank you for posting this - RIP Brock.

Haha the chicken v. egg theory...

I can get where you're coming from though for sure. If it's the latter, then I agree. Once they put the camera on you, you might as well do something.

The other issue I have is that the GA sees one of those guys and then believes that these guys are an accurate representation of all Buckeye fans.

I read the thread title and thought, "What team wouldn't want this guy as their captain?"; Foligno not Ferrigno

I think the majority of fans, including myself, (even if they consider themselves 'diehards') don't appreciate seeing guys like "Big Nut" and "Buckeye Guy" ham it up in front of the camera every chance they get. It comes off desperate and douche-y. I know neither of these men personally, so I'm not going to project what I see on camera to their respective (outside gameday) lives but just more an observation of their behavior on Saturdays in the fall.

I've seen plenty of 'superfans' who let the costume do the talking but don't feel the need to dance around and look directly into the camera every time they know they're on TV.

In general, I think people dislike (the) attention-seeking (behavior of superfans).

I can't upvote this enough. Every offseason when the Duke coaches are sitting at the round table discussing the next season, one of the assistants asks, "Who's playing the 5 this year?". Coach K just responds, "Somebody needs to go water the Plumlee tree."

If it was Auburn or Ole Miss, we would just take all 52 and not blink an eye

Donnie Corley? Donovan Peoples-Jones? One could hope!

Comment 17 Mar 2015

To me, it's a make or break year for Cam Burrows - lots of talent at the CB/S positions - I hope he is able to step up and take his game to the next level. He was one of the guys I was most excited about when he committed.

However, the talent behind him is strong - guys like E. Smith and M. Hooker at S looking to slide in behind incumbents Powell and Bell and M. Lattimore, G. Conley, D. Webb at the CB looking to take over other open corner spot and nickel.

Another guy who I think is in a make or break year is Chris Worley.

As long as I don't hear this dude b****in' and moanin' abut conference championships, head to head against TCWho, and SOS, I will consider next year's playoff a resounding success….
