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.
Good work. My only critique is that "Hardwork" should be two words.
I can confirm that it is, in fact, Jeff Heuerman in this photo.
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.
We are a schizophrenic people.
I'm assuming the staff doesn't check 11W forums every fifteen minutes like you and me.
Just a thought, but maybe we should hold ourselves to a higher standard of decency and conduct than deranged psychopaths.
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.
Thanks! I just took it with the panoramic setting on an iPhone 5.
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.
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.
Glad you like it, Tater.
Given the options, I'll take being positive.
I couldn't agree more. You nailed it.
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, Silver! Pretty impressive photo quality for a smart phone.
Great work, Kyle. Usually the X's and O's stuff is beyond me, but you broke this down really well.
Maybe you're both 9Route.
Thanks, Crumb. And I agree completely: there is still a lot that can be accomplished this season.
Thanks, man. Was quite a view.
