Ohio State plays in eight days, which means Buckeye fans are weathering the final, brutal stages of offseason withdrawal.
Thankfully some geniuses in the FOX Sports marketing department cooked up some amazing Big Ten preseason commercials. (Yes, it's amazing when a 30 second video leaves me excited for Purdue football.)
Ohio State's commercial headlines the promotional blitz with an ad centering on the question of, "Why doesn't Ohio State put a logo on its helmet?"
“Why doesn’t Ohio State put a logo on their helmets? Because they’d rather cover it in your misery.”
Also of note, actor Michael Kelly, who plays Columbusite Doug Stamper on House of Cards, narrates the video.
