Neither has every single Miami fan on earth - they probably wouldn't 'likey'

I'm a bagpiper.  When I'm in Columbus (and just about everywhere else), I like to play several Ohio State songs in what I call "The Buckeye Medley".  I don't play "We Don't Give a Damn" very often, because it doesn't sound that good on the pipes.  "Across the Field", "The Buckeye Battle Cry", and "Carmen Ohio" all sound a lot better.  "Hang On Sloopy" is also fun to play but you can really only play the chorus.  I tend to slip it in between "The Buckeye Battle Cry" and "Carmen Ohio"

 But as a bagpiper, I totally agree with you.  I've been wanting to see TBDBITL mass with the Pipes and Drums of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards for years.  I would give a lot to see the two greatest bands in the world perform as one.

TBDBITL does have a rendition of Amazing Grace with a couple bagpipers leading off.  I'll see if I can find it.

No joke...A few months ago, I clicked on "Groveport Heisman"'s user profile (I don't remember why...I  think I was checking his favorite teams during one of the previous Cincinnati/Cleveland debates) and for about a month after, I kept getting adds from some local hardware store "Located in Groveport, Ohio".  The connection had to have been from that...I don't live anywhere near Groveport Ohio and I'm not a big home-improvement/hardware-store guy.  It's pretty freaky what Google tracks.

SIN 1: I love the color Blue.  Almost as much as I love the Scarlet and Gray.  But, yeah I really like the color blue.  

I like to think it is somewhat excusable for me because I'm half-Scottish and blue is the national color of Scotland. It might not be excusable...I don't know.  Scottish blue does have a lighter shade than TSUN blue.  It is a lot harder to wear red in Scotland, because red is usually associated with engalnd, which, in Scotland, is pretty much hated by everyone, including myself.  It's hard for me, because Scotland wears blue and hates red, and Ohio wears red and hates blue.  I love both blue and red, but I hate both TSUN and england.

disclaimer: I do also really hate the color yellow.  It's generally way too bright and showy for my taste.  And that 'Sun' color that TSUN uses is the worst possible shade.  In my opinion, yellow is the least attractive color.

SIN 2: I honestly did not care that we lost to Purdue in 2011.  During that specific weekend, I had a TON of stuff going on and Ohio State football briefly slipped into the backseat.  Especially because we were playing so poorly.  That's the only time a loss hasn't really affected me since before 2006.

SIN 3:  I was not a fan of EZE's crop top.

SIN 4:  I like the OH...IO chant. (I haven't lived in Ohio for 10 years...nice to be recognized in enemy territory)

SIN 5:  I am a Kentucky basketball fan and I will wear UK gear.  (I have to make the non-Ohioan side of my American family happy)

Well this makes me happy.

Northern Illinois is going to be a tough out.  They have a good team and could give us some problems.  I have no doubt we'll win, but this should be an interesting game for a while.

To quote the great Dan Grueter:  "Have you been to Michigan?  The entire state smells like hot-dog water.  It's horrifying."

I cried when we lost to Clemson 

No shame in that...I cried after we lost to Texas in 2009.  And when Tressel resigned.

Eleven Warriors need to pool together to get you some tickets.  You deserve to see a game in the greatest stadium in college football the world.  You should be rewarded for your years of service and your years of fanship.
