The most unbiased post ever.

Some of us who didn't go to OSU and weren't raised in Columbus simply think its laughable that amateur athletics are treated as the pinnacle by a fanbase that largely did not go to the amateur institution in question. Its the sort of mentality that earns Columbus its "Cowtown" reputation.

The latest round of OSU-vs-Jackets wasn't started by "OSUphobics" it was started by the Buckeye fans, who themselves seem to have some sort of complex, freaking out because there was no red in the jersey. Seriously?! It isn't always about you Buckeye fans. It is as if they are afraid that if the Buckeyes aren't part of a given conversation they will suddenly be forgotten.

My bottom line--I come here to talk hockey, not amateur football. Buckeye fans, if you want OSU to be relevant to a discussion in hockey circles, here's an idea--try putting out a hockey team capable of making the Frozen Four. If those guys down in little old Miami of Ohio can do it, why can't you?
