And let me tell you why.
This weekend I was able to go to the University of Illinois for the OSU v. Illinois football game. I didn’t think it was possible, but it made me love Ohio State even more.
1. We won the game by 25 points, and this was not our best day. My Illini friends still tried to talk smack after they had lost because even they knew we should have won by more. Either way, we won and haven’t lost a game since I have been in college. End of story.
2. I also realized how awesome the Shoe is. And I know what you’re thinking, isn’t it obvious how amazing our stadium is? Well yes, but I don’t think I realized that other Big Ten schools don’t have the same school spirit that we do. The Illinis didn’t even have enough students to complete their Block I. (It was the #1 story on Yahoo for awhile). Thank goodness this will never be a problem for us Buckeyes.
3. TBDBITL came to the game. Enough said.
4. We did Stadium Ohio. (Need I mention again, this was an away game. I guess that’s what happens when you have over half a million living alumni.)
I realize this picture doesn’t capture Stadium Ohio. But taking an OHIO picture at a different stadium was kind of awesome.
I am not trying to hate on Illinois, because it’s a great school, but in my own completely bias opinion, they’ve got nothing on us.
(To prove I am inclusive of all schools, this is a snapshot of my best friend, Alex, and I after the game. (She’s on their dance team; she doesn’t just casually carry poms around))
