I agree 100% about the humor except when food is concerned.  They really should have stopped the humor and given good, true, solid facts about eating in Columbus cause that's just what good, true, solid folks do no matter what.

To play devil's advocate...

Why support an Ohio-based team that would rather support workers in China instead of Ohio workers?

I don't believe Ohio State ever used Nike footballs, even before Urban.  Here's a picture of Troy Smith with a Wilson football.

And here's one of TP with a Wilson football

And finally, here's one of Eddie George (but I don't know if that's a Nike jersey though):

There was a major uproar in the 90s when Ohio State considered switching from Wilson to Nike.  At that time, Michigan also had Nike uniforms and Wilson footballs.  Many people claimed they were going to start supporting Michigan if Ohio State switched.

There is some kind of special clause or something Ohio State has in their agreement with Nike: Everything Nike except footballs.

Personally, I think Army, Navy, and Air Force should all use Wilson footballs too.  Better a ball made in Ohio than China.

And, if anyone is interested, there are at least a handful of youtube videos on the Wilson Football Factory.  Watch them, they'll get you pumped up!  Specifically, this one is great:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbJMQIRam3Q

Ada, Ohio - Football Capital of the World!

Why draft a sure thing when you can get a criminal instead?  Also, Hyde went to Ohio St., so, you know, can't draft him, need more *ichigan, USC, Notre Dame, and SEC players.

Yeah, but don't the flowers on the grave and surrounding grass need the nitrogen?

And after you do the required reading and before you are allowed to create an account, you should pass a quiz on the required reading.  Nothing too complex, maybe on the same level of some corporate training webinars about sexual harassment or insider trading.  Something that if you even remotely paid attention, you could slam dunk.

Someone should actually do the math on how fast Braxton was running considering that you can clearly see the distance he runs and the clock.

I remember a Tennessee running back being tackled on the OSU sidelines, and an assistant coach from OSU grabbing the running back's shoes and looking at the stud length.

My 2 year old son could've hired Urban to Ohio State.  That hire literally made itself.  I'd be willing to bet that there are plenty of people in the Columbus metro area (that aren't currently running companies) who could do Smith's job better than he can.

He botched tat-gate.  He didn't do written performance reviews with Tressel.  Honestly, I wouldn't trust him not to screw up a toilet paper purchase.

I hypothesize that the reason Ohio rates so poorly on these happiness indexes is because we are honest.  I've lived in and visited other places, and everywhere I've been sucked too.

Also, I think we should propose a rule about the maximum weight (or bmi) a head coach can be, you know, for coach safety and all.
