Wolverines and Spartans are expected to be fierce opponents...but those Lions that say Ni!...just make me chuckle.
Question: Why does everybody always get an extra week to prepare for the Buckeyes?
Answer: Because they need it.
And then there's this:
Ohio State fans are increasingly making secret pacts to go to the PS game... in white (with OSU underneath) and change over to OSU colors at halftime....or some other strategic time secretly agreed upon by the huddled masses and cleverly hidden from the Lions.
The thinking apparently was to use the Roman theme, let the Bucks see what it looks like to have the entire Colosseum against you. A veritable sea of white...angry Roman citizens seeking to soothe their sodden sins with a little violence in the house.
And after all...Gladiators are supposed to die.
Thinking now as my evil scientist self, I know that PS is expecting OSU colors to show up in the stands, to disrupt the sea of white they plan on unleashing...and yet, where are they? Where are the Buckeye fans?
Even the sports media guys would be startled at first....they'll be blathering in the booth about the absence of Ohio State fans...perplexed about the inability of even the students to support their team.
"No, Brent, I don't see a Buckeye in the house!"
It would look a lot like the Colosseum with our guys the gladiators. Glorious!
And funny as heck.
Has anybody asked you yet?
And then my mind races over the plan...
...oh crap, I have to even pretend to be a Penn State fan?
Would be awesome though to see, punk the announcers and Penn State fans at the same time, whup arse in the actual game, and then for the icing...to possibly put the poor "White Out" to bed for all time! If they dared to pull it out again, the media would be bringing up the "Roman Games of 2016", reliving the drubbing the Buckeyes pasted onto Penn State that year, yada, yada.
Now that would be funny!
