Wolverine success starting to annoying Buckeyes? Its starting to look that way, at lease with my friend. I got a text from my friend just a bit ago whining and crying about how some Michigan fans that he knows that live by him are starting to chirp about the wolverine success.
He didn't tell me what they were saying but must have been some smack talk about how Tate the great is going to bring the buckeyes down this year. Who knows what was said. What i can tell you is that he is a big buckeye fan who hopes for Michigan failure and a 0-12 season every year. My dad taught me to appreciate the rivalry and hope the buckeyes are undefeated, because those buckeye tears will only taste sweeter. I have also kept away from trash talking that some fans do. I have always looked at it like if i trash talk and then my team loses i look like an idiot, so i just don't do it.
At the end of our conversation i just finally told him to suck it up because i hear it all the time living in Ohio. There will always be those fans and you just have to ignore them. Its a different culture down here in Ohio. They take things personally and just have to say, "hey calm down guys, its not the end of the world".
But i was curious if anyone who has buckeye friends have noticed a new annoyance with them. There seems to be an insecurity with themselves when Michigan is brought up. Any thoughts or stories?
