I apologize if this is a dup but I am curious as to when and why everyone here became Buckeye fans. I know many of us will likely have similar stories. I'll start. My story is relatively basic and typical. I was born and raised in Ohio (Columbus specifically) by parents who were Toledo natives that raised me to be a buckeye fan. The first game I watched was the 2003 national championship game although I was very little and unfortunately can't remember watching it. The first game I remember watching was the 2008 USC game. The 2010 Oregon game was the game that really got me into buckeyes and I have been following closely since. How about you?
