Death. Taxes. Ohio State rowing winning the national championship.

The Buckeyes took the rowing championship for the third-straight time Sunday morning at Gold River, Ca. The rowers held a precarious one-point lead over the University of Washington, 60–59, heading into the varsity eight grand final today and the Buckeyes clinched with a victory in the 1V8. And they did it in style:

Ohio State becomes the first program to record three rowing titles in a row and the crown gives Ohio State five on the year, as rowing joins football, wrestling, the synchronized swimming team and pistol. It's a great time to be a Buckeye.
