ESPN: Block O Second Best Student Section in the Big Ten

Folks, Ohio State's student section has been dissed in arbitrary rankings in an ESPN article. Time to fire up the ol' internet rage machine!!!!!11

After calling Penn State students the best student-fans in the country, here's what they said about the Block O:

The Buckeyes have such a wide swath of supporters in Ohio that they can sometimes feel like a pro team, but the large and dedicated student section at the Horseshoe keeps that from being the case. Occupying much of the south end zone, the Block-O often leads the stadium in cheers. Urban Meyer started a new tradition where he and strength coach Mickey Marotti lead the students through a series of "quick cals" before the game. And win or lose, the team sings "Carmen Ohio" in front of the band and student section after games. 

Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa are the next on the list. Neither school in Michigan made the cut, much to our delight, which softens the blow of not holding down the No. 1 spot.
