Some thoughts from a visit to Columbus, in no particular order…
- Before the game, we were pretty much ignored by what I expected to be an obnoxious Ohio State fanbase; turns out they didn't live up to the hype. I mean this is the best way possible. It wasn't an arrogant disregard, but more like the reception you get when walking down the street of a crowded city. Not what I anticipated when reading comments like these at Mike's guest post on 11W:
Had we said "Oh well we don’t want to be jerks like the Japs" after the bombing of Pearl Harbor I believe we would have lost some respect in the eyes of the world. This is on a smaller scale but It wasn’t just one kid it was hundreds. So im not saying throw beer at people wearing Penn St colors. However verbal abuse is totally within the realm of reason, and god forbid those beavers get mouthy. GO BUCKS!Um, okay.
If you also attended the game, tell us your opinion of the trip in the comments.
