Ohio State superfan Buck-I-Guy caused a stir Wednesday when he attended the Earle Bruce memorial service in full regalia. Wildly, it wouldn't even be the most tactless thing he did that day.

Buck-I-Guy later attended family visiting hours at Schoedinger Funeral and Cremation Service in Worthington (sans uniform) and signed a Bruce family memorial photo meant for former players and coaches.

It's not hard to imagine how former players felt. According to WTVN reporter Matt McCoy, who eulogized Bruce yesterday, Bruce's pupils rectified the error:

A petition to ban Buck-I-Guy from university property is now circulating. As of this writing, it has 200 signatures.
