This is just another way of ESPN taking a cheap shot at all of the real OSU fans. To put in a professional ticket scalper into a hall of shfame with OSU plastered all over him. Could be an intentional setup to make OSU look bad when he gets.............

Or I could be wrong and he is really a wonderful guy......... I am only going on what I have read and heard about him over the years. Too bad Neutron man is no longer among us. He was a real super fan.

I've only had one interaction with this guy and it was down in Dallas for the National Championship game!  I know everything I've read/heard about this guy has been less than flattering and I'm sure he most certainly has his douche/ass side but after seeing him for two days up close and personal, I have to say that I didn't see any negative signs and/or traits.  He was never anything but a happy, fun loving, jovial and an accommodating guy.  He was never obnoxious, loud, or overbearing and was just hanging out interacting with the crowd!  There were literally hundreds of people approaching him to chat and have their pictures taken and in the end - everybody had a great time!  Personally - I thought he was quite funny and engaging and did not even remotely reflect badly on the team or university - he came across as nothing more than a Buckeye fanatic!

As a Buckeye fan since tickets at the Shoe $6 each, I'm happy to see a  fan carve out a niche by creating a character that's become iconic around the nation. Is he a pretentious, self absorbed weenie? . . . yes!!!--but you can't deny that he's just as much a part of comtemporary Buck-Lore as script Ohio is!  So why not can the Mark May sounding prattle and give Grubby his moment?!!!

This guy is not a fan. He's a grown man who is an attention whore and uses OSU as a vehicle to achieve that. I've watched two games next to this guy and he pays less attention to the game and the team and the band than my girlfriend who doesn't give a shit about sports. I kid you not that he spends the entire game not watching a second of it but promoting himself to people around him as some kind of celebrity and shouting at the nearest tv camera man to "show me some love!" You're a fucking grown up, dressed up like a clown and your entire goal in life is get on tv for 6 seconds at a time. It's a sad representation of our fans first of all and second of all, he's not a fan of this team. He's a fan of himself and he uses this team to promote himself. Fuck this guy.

I'm sayin...all these guys, this douche, Big Nut or whatever, and that clown that's always next to him, I've always wondered if these guys actually like their lives or if they would prefer to be called whatever their fan name is.  I'm sure there are people reading this website everyday that are bigger fans than these guys.  50 year old guys facepainting is just kinda lame for real.  That's why fans loved Neutron Man, this guy was just in the stands, not face painted or 1,000,000 buckeye necklaces, and CERTAINLY not a doll of himself.  He is one of the experiences I will always have during my time as a student in The Horseshoe.

If there were ever to be an OSU game that wasn't televised, I'd bet he'd skip the game. He can cover himself in as many logos as he wants but he's a fan of himself and seeking out attention far more than he's a fan of the team.

HS
OSUBuckeyes4Life's picture

I am still relatively new to 11W and honestly did not know there was any ill will towards the guy until recently. Please excuse my ignorance, but what exactly has he done that is so bad? Is it merely the attention-whoring or something more? I'm not defending him, just curious.

Its part attention-whoring and part he is a douche. We have all heard stories about or personally experienced his douche qualities. Friends have approached Buck I Guy for pictures and been turned away because they weren't willing to pay $10. I'm sure he really loves Ohio State, but probably not as much as he loves the media attention.

Ever since his video with the bear went viral, he's been bombarded with people wanting to take pictures with him and he never turns them down. Not only that, but he does a ton of community work with the CBJ. I was so disappointed when I found out Buck-I-Douche got in over Dancing Kevin.

HS
Bolt's picture

Well, you're lucky to never have interaction with him. If you did, you'd hate him to. How about this short story of how I didn't care about the guy until this certain day...2007, an Ann Arbor. I have great 2nd row seats. Some dipshit OSU fans decide they're going to pull all three of these clowns down to sit in their seats with them even though Buck-I-Guy, Big Nut and Buckeyeman have no tickets anywhere near us. They get this because they go around saying to OSU fans with good seats, hey! You want to be on tv?? Let me come sit down here with you!

Now for the whole game I've got these three fat, grown up clowns displacing me out of my seats and taking up my personal space. One was worse than the next, with Buck-I-Guy being by far the worst. Didn't watch a single minute of the game...spent the whole game shouting at the nearest camera man "show me some love, camera man!". It was the saddest shit ever.

Aside from all that, it's just sad watching these grown men dress up like clowns and behave so desperately to get on tv for 6 seconds at a time. It's one thing when you see a college kid doing it and getting excited to be on tv for a few seconds...It's another thing for these middle aged, fat old men doing it. Just makes me cringe every time I see them. Friends from other fan bases always laugh about them and make fun of us over them.

Amazes me why Ohio State fans are excited to meet and take pictures with these clowns, let alone let them come share their seats because, "oh, I've seen that guy on TV before!" So what? I've seen Saddam Hussein on TV before...doesn't mean I want to get my picture with him and watch a football game with him. Alright, maybe I should take a step back.

I guess I am going to have to claim ignorance as well. I am gathering that he is not the most genuine guy.

Seems like a lot of venom being thrown his way, by a lot of people. I am sure it must be warranted at least on some level given the volume of posts. Can someone help me understand?

No, he's very genuine. He's all about shameless self promotion and he just uses OSU as a vehicle to promote himself. The fact that he's being inducted into some dumb fan hall of fame isn't as big a sham as everyone makes it out to be. He's absolutely a mega super fan...Of himself, not OSU.

...tried to contact ESPN FanHallofFame to let them know the dissent of at least one 3rd generation, 50+ years-dedicated OSU fan and my complete disregard & embarrassment at the sight of this guy, but they have no contact info posted there.

Disney owns ESPN, so I must assume they are looking for more over-hyped cartoon characters in their profile.

As a Browns fan I know a coulple of "notable" fans who get their share of face time (Big Dawg, Bone Lady, Pumpkin Head). No hate for them, they support the team and have fun doing so. Pardon my ignorance, but is there something Big Nut or Buck I Guy have done to warrant all the shade? I see where they could be a bit annoying and showy but is there something more?

IMO- Big Nut is sometimes too prominent on TV for an "unofficial" mascot but it is because he is present at games, is large and is an ostentatious and shameless fan of the Buckeyes. I don't like it but he seems all about the Buckeyes.

This other guy (I do not know either personally) comes across as self-promoting, and grasping for his own caricature identity to be noticed before that of the Team, the University or its genuine fan base/alumni. It's garish, outlandish, embarrassing, and self-serving.

I do not like him, Sam-I-am!

Pretty simple to me actually - I don't want to see 50 plus year old douchebags in the front row of every damn game (somehow) on ESPN in their stupid getup!  Plus - from what I've heard (click links above) he's a damn idiot!  Show the band and student section!

Well I'd prefer to see the cheerleaders at every break in the game but that doesn't happen. Seems like your issue is with the networks and not Buck-I-Guy. The cameramen are the ones who pan to him and Big Nut in the crowd. It just seems like everyone on 11W is just joining in on the hate because someone else said it was the thing to do. I don't like bashing people for the sake of it unless there's some substance to it. I have run into Buck-I-Guy on a couple occasions and have even taken a picture with him. He seemed sincere and very approachable.

The thing is every time I see someone bashing Buck-I-Guy, there never seems to be any substance to the hat besides being "camera whores". Like I said, I have ran into him before and he did not come off as someone who thought they were bigger than the team or better than any other fan. Everybody has their own experiences so if someone did have a bad experience I would understand the complaints. I have yet to read about something significant to warrant all this negativity. It's not that I am trying to ruffle any feathers here, I just was hoping someone could expand on the situation.

If he really is a super fan, then I am sure he has an 11W account.  He has to know how people feel about him.  My brother and I had a run in with him a few years back during a ESPN Game Day taping.  He had a flag with HIS picture on it and asked my brother to hold it for him.   He promised to get my brother on TV.  I have to just laugh about it now.  All he wanted was to be on TV.

People seem to care a lot about this. When I have interacted with him he was fine so I can't say anything bad about him, besides there are way worse fans out there. If the worse he does is look for cameras during games then whatever, he could be calling in to a radio show an reinforcing every negative stereotype about us but he doesn't so good for him. Can't spend my time hating a guy who roots for my teams after all.

Unky Buck's picture

He's an egomaniac who thinks he doesn't need to pay for anything and simply deserves to have his face shown because of some narcissistic image that he created. I've seen him personally demand free stuff from businesses for simply going there as well as demanding an appearance fee for simply being at a tailgate that no one invited him to in the first place. This is on top of carrying around pictures of himself and handing them out to people to then request money for it as well as carrying around dolls of himself that he had made and charging children in a hospital for photos to be taken with him. He may have a good moment here or there, but for the most part he is simply a douche who is looking for self-gratification (and got it today).
