Et tu, Brute?

It’s pretty special when the mascot of the state’s (and nation’s) largest major college visits your middle school.

Growing up in Oklahoma, I was always annoyed by the amount of Sooners fans everywhere I looked. Ohio State is the OU of Ohio, but much larger. Luckily, I don’t have a tie to any local teams, so it’s not as bothersome.

In Oklahoma, there has been a big rise in the number of people pulling for that school in Stillwater, but here in Ohio, there’s hardly a close second. Everyone here loves OSU. At least, everyone who cares at all about college football.

It was fun being back at a middle school pep rally. It reminded me of when I was in junior high and wore my football jersey to school on gamedays for the pep rally. If you’re wondering, I was about as good at football as you would expect.
