The commercial 'Go Buckeyes' really cracks me up. Do you remember it? It's the one where a couple is introducing themselves to each other while the woman is driving. Suddenly it becomes clear that they're actually out on a blind date. The guy ends up jumping out of her car because she is chanting one of Ohio State's rival team's slogan. He not only jumps out of the moving car, but he screams back 'GO BUCKEYES' as loud as he can.
You may wonder why all the fuss over football. Well, it's way more than just football, it's pride and tradition. The Buckeyes have now been a part of the football world for a whopping 25 years. They take great pride in representing Ohio State University and competing in the Subdivision of the NCAA Division I Football Bowl. Their first season ever goes all the way back to 1890. All total they've won 7 national championships with 10 undefeated seasons as well as 36 Conference Championships. In 1942 they won their first ever national championship under the leadership of coach Paul Brown.
With such a rich history and tons of tradition tied into the Ohio State football team, it's no wonder why people get Buckeye fever during football season.
