Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

Success.

And he didn't burn the South to the ground, just a large swath from Atlanta to the sea.

and honestly he didn't even really do that. the mythology around sherman and his march has been so built up over the years by southerners who wanted to portray him as the devil himself that they've forgotten that that's exactly what he wanted them to do in the first place.

he's this eternal boogeyman for many people in the south, and while he has no reason to be, the fact that his face alone pisses off people who are 150 years removed from a society that had to be forced at gunpoint to stop enslaving people means that we are DEFINITELY going to put him on a shirt to mock those same people.

what's funny is that legitimate scholarship on sherman's march has already been changed for decades. it's been painfully obvious for along time that the march to the sea wasnt nearly as destructive as he or generations of future southerners would leave people to believe. but it's taken a while for lost cause revisionists and southern apologists to figure that out for themselves.

the Apple family lives in new jersey. round trip, that's a 2600 mile ride that would take 19 hours of nonstop driving each way. gas alone would run them 400-600 dollars, and that's to say nothing of hotel rooms, food, and any other travel expenses they'd incur. for families that have to actually work for a living, they often can't afford to take what would be 3-5 days off their jobs for one game (nevermind two if ohio state actually wins)

flying is the easiest and most sensible option for most people, and given that the money is absolutely present to help families out this way, it makes zero sense why there isn't a way to make it happen.

i guess other than spite towards people for not being independently wealthy.

just a warning, there will be very little tolerance in this thread for both speculation and "women be crazy" shit from here on out. this is obviously a very sensitive situation, and as a fanbase we need to be aware of that and not act like idiots. talk about it all you want, but understand that there are two sides to every story, and right now we have no definitive information either way.
