I think this piece is pretty derogatory and none of the people involved in the mentioned history are alive now. This also does nothing for our football team and won't help us at all in the Sugar Bowl. If anything it reinforces the false notion that somehow Northerners or Midwesterners are superior and more educated. Although I am a die hard Buckeye by birth I have lived in the South for a long time and am married to a born and bred Cajun girl (who happens to be a Buckeye convert.). Folks down here aren't the backwards mouth breather types you portray. Sure....there are some rednecks...but good ole Ohio has just as many and y'all know it.
This is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. There is a reason the population, jobs, industry, and resources in this country are heading south. The reason the SEC has been so good is because fans down here love the sport and support it fanatically. The Universities respond to this with appropriate resources. We B1G fans WISH our conference could brag as much.
I would prefer to read about the players and matchups, and the inside info this fantastic sight has always provided.
