"The" Ohio State University

Ah yes. Hopefully ohio state people do not confuse disdain for respect. I hold a special place in my sould for the dislike of a few college football programs. ohio state, Florida State, and Nebraska. Below is the comment section thus far over at Achiever Card Blog in regard to the post lamenting this guy's feelings about The most overrated football program being blown out by USC.

Does this mean you guys will stop referring to yourselves as "The" Ohio State University. I'm sure you know by now that everyone just rolls their eyes when they hear that and not in a jealousy sort of way.

Yes, absolutely. Because we lost a game to the USC Trojans we've collectively decided to stop using "The". Until you brought it up we were completely unaware that other people think it's dumb. Really, thank you, we had no idea.

Next time try to come up with something even more original like: "You guys in the big ten can't count. Don't you know there are 11 teams?" That stuff is comedy gold.

Ah, the Dick Cheney defense. Calling me unoriginal because you have this undeserved sense of superiority.

How about this? I stay unoriginal, Ohio State continues to be irrelevant? I suppose you don't have to worry about being blown out in the title game this year. See, things are looking up.

Great blog.

As if they are the only university in the state. BGSU, OhioU, Cin., Akron, Kent, and Toledo all have better opponents on their schedule than OSU. And that includes the MAC schedule!

I hate OSU's "THE" Ohio State University. Talk radio here in C-bus was amazing yesterday calling for Todd Boeckman to sit the bench. They want to sit a senior captain QB who took them to a Big 10 title and National Championship game last year in favor of Prior.. a true freshman.

Thanks for the post. Great stuff. Thanks.
