I'm not offended, but I'm not a fan. When I was an undergrad from 2004-08, there was a student-initiated sportsmanship campaign called "The Best Fans in the Land." The whole idea was that a handful of fans were giving Ohio State a bad name and that the rest of us needed to act as ambassadors for the university and the city. It was a great message. I can't help but feel that this chant runs counter to it.

I graduated from undergrad in 2008. Never heard it while I was a student. I'm assuming this became a thing in 2010 or 2011.

In case you forgot, this coaching staff took a ragtag 6-7 team and won 24 straight. Our memories are almost as weak as our loyalty.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

I'm assuming the staff doesn't check 11W forums every fifteen minutes like you and me.

Agreed. These are the same people who booed Tress in 2009 when he used a snap in overtime against Iowa to center the ball for the game-winning field goal. Then, when the kick went through the uprights, they rushed the field and bought tickets to Pasadena. They've always been here and--win or lose--always will be.

I wish the team had played better, too. All I'm saying is that a beautiful fall Saturday spent with friends in a football palace is still really great day, regardless of the outcome.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

I remember about a year ago I was going through a rough time and a friend said, "I'm really excited for you. Life has handed you a difficult situation and it is your task to find your way." It wasn't what I wanted to hear, but he was right: tough times are nothing but opportunities.Your comment reminded me a lot of that conversation. Thanks for sharing.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Agreed. It took about a decade for me to get to this point. Hopefully this next decade is much less depressing no matter how the Buckeyes/Browns/Cavs/Tribe/Jackets play.

Thanks, Crumb. And I agree completely: there is still a lot that can be accomplished this season.
