It's just a game

Four simple words, but ones that I can be guilty of forgetting while watching Penn State play. I sit down on Saturday to watch the games, and there is no one I hate more in the entire world than whoever is currently playing Penn State, and also Ohio State. Especially Ohio State. They're bad people, their state is stupid, and they're basically subhuman.

Clearly I'm exaggerating a bit there, but still, the point stands. All too often we forget that the people wearing the other jerseys are exactly the same as us. I came across this video today and it really drove that point home. For some background, read this.


Ever since IT, college football hasn't had quite the luster for me that it used to. I'm still 99% there, but there's always just that small part of me that was forever lost by everything that happened. Add in the NCAA, the many scandals at other schools, and everything else, and sometimes I really have started to wonder if all I'm doing is watching the NFL - Saturday edition. Typically nothing that a good "We Are" chant or BOB interview can't remedy, but things like this also help make college football seem more...human.

Ohio State still sucks, but maybe not as much as I used to think.
