LOL I am sure I'll get my share of DVs but I don't care. I hate looking at those guys.
"The future is bright at Ohio State." - Urban Meyer 1/1/15
How the FUCK are they douchebags?
They love their team, what's wrong with that. I am so f-ing tired of those fans that are so f-ing tired of those superfans.
Is anyone going to explain to me?
For me - I think they just like being on the camera a tad more than they do rooting for their team.
It seems like they know exactly where the camera is, and exactly when the camera is on them.
I don't know how much of explanation that is, but that's my opinion.
I heard buckeye man (wig) speak a few years ago. Dude gives a lot back and has my respect. Can't speak for the other two.
PG <3 PG
That's fair - I've heard Andy Vance speak the same about him as well.
I saw BuckNut at the Maryland game, surprisingly subdued among a slew of other Buckeye fans leaving after the game - like no one seemed to care who he was.
I've not seen/met the guy in person, from what I've read/heard I have absolutely no interest in doing so.
But I agree, Buck-I-guy seems to really like being on camera.

It's Big Nut. Don't screw up my name again.
I agree completely. Didn't notice Buck-I-Guy at the basketball game yesterday. Then my wife pointed out it wasn't on tv so then it made total sense.
I just wish we could get someone that was < 280lbs to be a superfan. It makes it seem like all our fans are slobs.

I will. There is a big difference between superfan and douchebag. When you charge for autographs and tailgate appearances, you're a douche.
Sure, just as soon as you explain the rest of your posts tonight to me...
Can't even fucking tackle
I give up. There's no way we win this game. They aren't undisciplined pieces of shit
This is the most undisciplined team in America. My god. Not even gonna get a chance in this game when you fuck up this many times.
LET'S MUFF ANOTHER PUNT YOU MORONS
Ya, we aren't pulling this off. "Big game" Meyer chokes again
This team has no heart. MSU stomping all over them. Easy win for them
Is there a difference between Viper and Leo? "No, we just thought Viper sounded cooler."---Former Buckeye Coach Mike Vrabel
The fact that they are media whores and by virtue of their whoreness they become part of the face of the university.... That's what drives me crazy. For example Buck-I-Guy ESPiN commercial. I'd much rather see Brutus than a super fan. Nuetron Man was the original super fan. He loved the university and could care less about a camera.
The offseason is the longest season.
Their shtick is also nothing more than a ploy to get better access to the games.
Couldn't have said it better Toad. I have nothing against them personally... I just hate seeing them EVERY SINGLE GAME, GAME AFTER GAME.
For the love of God show some of our other great fans.
by virtue of their whoreness they become part of the face of the university.... That's what drives me crazy.
Absolutely. As an alum and one who cares about the university in that capacity and it's global brand, this is what irks me. On a scale of importance, I suppose it's mostly harmless and not that important, but it still annoys me; much like an "itch" that you can't quite reach in the middle of your back kind-of-way.
It only takes 2 words.....attention whores
^ best post ever ^
notice how far up into the stands Neutron Man is?
notice how he is not wandering the stadium looking for a camera so he can be on TV?
Those other guys have stepped over into a zone where they are fans of themselves instead of being fans of the Ohio State Buckeyes
I saw Ryan Day hang 62 on Michigan...His hair was perfect.
Go Buckeyes Beat Michigan
And I tiredof that dr pepper commercial where the guy says "14 teams in the big ten? That makes no sense!" That guy can get off my screen too, lol

Serious question, is that guy Steve Spurrier ?
I am so f-ing sick of missed tackles...
Nice - and special teams turnovers
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

EDIT - as Seattle says above.
I prefer to call them supper fans. They are generously proportioned.
The lord of brevity.
since i cant get on the threads... BUCKS SCOREEEEE
“Anyone can run the option. I can run the option.” - Urban Meyer Let's beat the snot out of *ichigan.
I read this as "I am so f-ing sick of those Spartans" - I kinda like that better, at least the Superfans are wearing the right colors.
YEAH DEVIN SMITH!!!!
(SORRY, WAS IN THIS THREAD)
I am in the minority, I know, but they don't bother me one bit.
I'm against them, mostly because it seems like every other school has hot chicks, and we have fat guys?.
Exacto. It just makes all of our fans look like fat idiots, because they're the only fans ever on camera.
We can't stop here; this is bat country...
Who's drunk?!?@!! Me. Upvotes around.
Have one for me. I'm sadly working.
Priority #1: Beat Michigan
Sadly working or working sadly? :-)
Well, I haven't screwed anything up yet, so...
Key word: yet.
Will do. Jack n Coke or a Bud Light?
Let's shake things up and do the mixed drink.
Got ya my man. You should probably just leave work. I think they would understand!!
I don't drink...no UV for me :(
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.
No worries. I got your back.
They are more into self-promotion than supporting the Buckeyes. That's what gets people upset and makes them look bad. There's a reason they wear the same customized clothing with their stupid nicknames on them, it's just wanton self-promotion. It's annoying that they get their morbidly obese faces on camera every week at the expense of fans who don't make us look like raging douches.
I hardly ever use Twitter to actually tweet. Maybe get a ton of people to Tweet to Herbstreit to have him pass along to ESPN/ABC not to show these "super fans" since the real fans hate them and when they get air time, it just encourages them more.
I don't care too much for mega-fandom but you have to give these guys (and others like them) credit; they spend tons of $$$ getting to every game.
Which leads me in to my next series of thoughts; are they possibly collecting government money via social security, disability, etc. because they somehow manage to be at every game no matter where it is and clearly do not have jobs and haven't for years.
Living the life! Go Buckeyes! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

No matter what, it is still a college game and first and foremost the game is played for students. Superfans should be students and not some middle age men. Why do I think that somehow these guys are getting paid or reimbursed by the Athletic Department or by the networks for their appearances at the games?
Did anyone notice how much more ESPN showed them after this thread was started? It was almost comical. I almost died when a fan went down to Buck I Guy to take a selfie with him. They showed the bald guy a zillion times.
Trust me their not collecting any grovermenr aid because i have been on SSI disability for years trying to get my VA disability and you barely have enought to get by on from month to month. Hell i have not been to a game since USC game and that was gift ticket from a family member. Wait i take that back last year my roomates cousin took me to a the Fla a&m game. Last time i made it to an tOSU and TTUN game was the 13-13 tie Gee claimed to be one of the greatest wins or something like that. Im thinking you damned idoit the game was a f-ing tie and you claim that as one of the greatest tOSU vs TTUN games.
I told my brother while we were (who is the MSU fan and basically oblivious to superfans), that if somehow Buck-I-Guy mysteriously got arrested for something illegal, we would be heroes.
anybody happen to watch the buckeye pregame show before the Illinois game? they brought several students on stage to 'pass' the Illi-buck trophy.. last guy on stage was Buck-I-Guy and he was holding the trophy and milking it.. eventually, one of the announcers sounded like he was getting upset about it and said "what are you doing Buck-I-Guy? pass the trophy already!" The cameraman proceeded to pan away from Buck-I-Guy as much as possible..
Herbie chimed in during the broadcast Saturday night after they showed Buck-I-Guy with something along the lines of "those guys get more air time than Brutus"..
I don't think fans are the only ones frustrated with them trying to be the faces of the program..
those guys get more air time than Brutus
I had to rewind my DVR to make sure I had heard that right. Seriously, these guys. I suppose in their defense, I've only actually seen Buck-I-Guy being a douche in person.
Buck-i-Guy is my dad.
You are looking live...along the banks of the Olentangy...

It's interesting that this guy is now coloring his 'stache red. I am totally disgusted with how much air time these guys get. I hope my theory that these guys get preferential treatment when requesting tickets is wrong - "Dear Ticket Department, this is Buck-I-Guy and I would really like to get tickets to the National Championship game."
Watched this one literally run away from people trying to get a picture with him Saturday night in EL. Not sure why they wanted a picture with him in the first place, but they were pretty upset about it.
The other guy with the mustache is my brother.
Just consider before you type.
Just a little cunning Seattle Linga.
What pissed me off was the Big Nut was screaming (at the camera) while our offense was on the field for a huge third down play. Stop yelling you jackass, there are plenty of Spartan fans there to do that against our guys.
These weirdos have no friends and roll to games by themselves.
Serious. I pay them no mind.
Coeds, on the other hand ...
“Save yourself and relax during every game. I recommend a fine bourbon.”
I absolutely cannot stand them. I don't agree with any defense of them saying they attend every game and spend their own money. I hope you don't honestly believe that.
Yes they never miss a game but really sit back and ask yourself why they never miss a game. What is the one thing you generally never miss regardless of most obligations... work. Why don't you miss it? Because you get paid to do it and it pays your bills. I honestly think that these guys could care less about the University or the team. They have found a money maker and profit off of their supposed "Super" fan status. What do these guys do to better the University aside from act obnoxiously and get on TV? They most likely have every game ticket, trip etc... paid for by someone.
They aren't "Super" fans, there simply isn't anything "Super" about them aside from the fact that they can dress in a crazy manner and get air time. If you want to show a Team Mascot which these guys have almost become then show Brutus.
The true fan's are those that come to all of the games they can but even if they can't cheer for their team wherever they are without seeking gain from it, the true fans are the student's and alumni who while gaining an education helped build the University to what it is, the true fan's are the 80 year old grandfather who braves the cold in his wheel chair with his grandkids to watch the team he has always loved and could care less about being on TV because he is too busy cherishing the experience of the stadium, atmosphere and game to try to get himself on camera. The true fans are the parent (s) who are bringing their child to their first Buckeye game to continue the tradition. Those are the true fans! If you have turned your fandom into a business of self promotion then you are no longer a fan you are a business man.
Guess i pissed someone off with being honest about this in my post so im going to piss them off even more. If you have a problem with what i said either about them not being on goverment aid or me being disabled doe'nt reall matter beause you can kiss my ass and not on the left and not on the right but in the grove. Now down vote that because now i really gave you a reason to play click click on my botton.
And for the trolls who are following other memeber just to DV them you can take a number and take your turn as well.
All of those guys are an embarrassment to the University. If they had an ounce of self awareness and really cared about the school they would do the right thing and disappear.
Buck-I-Guy and Big Nut are not fans, they're all about the attention. I've heard from friends who go to games that both don't even look like they're watching the game. They're too busy trying to get on TV or get noticed. Even ABC spotted Big Nut posing for photos with fans during the Sparty game Saturday.
"I find your lack of kalua disturbing" - Darth Lebowski
Here is the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Big-Nut was at the same hotel as us recently. Answer me this...Why does a guy who goes tailgate to tailgate all Saturday, and then hops to his feat during the game whenever a camera gets within 25 yards of him "need" a handicap parking pass? I work with adults with disabilities, and this really torques me off. This guy may do some nice things, but he hasn't met a camera he doesn't like.
I don't know what his ailment is, but people can get those for simply having mental illness. I know a lot of people abuse them too. I had a boss at a job in high school and he had one. He complained it was due to his back, but he was on his feet all day walking around our shop.
And then I told her...i'm no weatherman, but tonight's forecast is calling for several inches!
I was coming home from campus back in early October and saw cowboy all decked out going due south on 23 at Henderson rd. I'm assuming he was headed to campus area for some reason. The problem is, it was a Tuesday and he was in costume. I've heard stories of him trying push pics and autographs off on students at campus establishments too and demanding that they take them like he was a celeb of some sort. Definitely getting sick of him.
i don't so much mind the one with the wig even though I think it's strange for old men to dress up like that. I know he does a lot for the school and volunteers also while not in costume. He's also an alum unlike the other handfull of as clowns.
