I can't find this year's tiebreaking procedure, but according to last year's it would go to the head-to-head record of the two teams. In that case, OSU would be the 1 seed. Nebraska is also actually in the race for the conference title: if Ohio State and Indiana split and Nebraska wins their final two games, there will be a three-way tie for first. Luckily, the Buckeyes went 2-1 agaisnt the Cornhuskers this year, meaning they'd get the one seed. But, Minnesota can actually also get a share of the title if they win both games and Ohio State wins only one. Then the Gophers would be the 1 seed since they beat the Buckeyes twice.
I'm glad you mentioned those "bUCkeye State" shirts. There were quite a few UC fans at my suburban Dayton high school, and I saw way too many of those slogans. Just the memory of the shirt made our Sweet 16 win last year that much sweeter for me personally.
I didn't know Craft was in Tom Goes to the Mayor.
As a young boy growing up in Centerville I was extremely lucky to have a dad who brought me to each high school football game from an early age, and because of that I will always have great memories of Hawk. He was even more of a beast than in college, and I still think of him as a running back rather than a linebacker because at that age offense was all I cared about. A true OSU legend, plus nobody flips off his own sideline like AJ.
I can assure you I did, I just tried to keep it down. Anyone who heard it was in stitches, that's for sure.
