10:10 AM ET 05.07 | Although Michigan has not beaten the Buckeyes on the football field since 2003, when gas was $1.50 a gallon and Sammy Sosa hit his 500th home run, the Wolverines appear to be dancing a celebratory jig right now, at the expense of embattled Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel. A large billboard on I-94 between Detroit and Ann Arbor proclaims: "Liar, Liar, Vest on Fire!", taking a direct shot at Tressel and his affinity for scarlet sweater vests. To this point, the perpetrator behind the scathing rhyme remains anonymous.

Ever since I was at the Fiesta bowl when OSU beat ND have I not been a fan of OSU. Not becuase of the loss but because I had Buckeye girls wanting to fight my girlfriend because Ted Ginn scored a touchdown. We were quietly haivng a beer and keeping quiet as we should since our team just gave up the td, (what can we celebrate) and these fat cows turned and jumped in her face wanting to throw blows. Since that time, I have met Buckeye fan after Buckeye fan and each one being worst than the first 2. Since then, I simply have the most distaste for these fans. Herbie is right to leave the state, too many radical fans that make that university look bad. I will watch patiently as the once great b12 empire goes down. With a big **** eating grin of course.

I'm a Buckeye fan and have been for over 50 years and I'm sorry for your bad experience, you have to remember STUPID people reside everywhere, probably even some at ND, I know michigan has a ton. I had the same type of experience you had with a STUPID michigan fan at a game that didn't involve our two schools. So again, I understand but we're all not STUPID, rude people at tOSU.

You are exactly right. I'm glad you wrote what you did, showing that there is still class at OSU. It's just been very far and few if you know what I mean...

coltssb - I am an Ohio State Alumni and as much as I would like to stand up for the OSU fans I can't. I agree with you (well maybe not about the fat cow part because I didn't see them, there are some OSU women that are not fat cows). Anyway it seems over the years especially when they were able to start competing against Michigan again it's been all downhill. I will say that with such a large fan base there will always be good and bad no matter the school. Unfortunately there are more bad than good at OSU. I'm sorry you and your girlfriend had to experience that and it's embaressing for me. It's also one of the reasons I don't care to attend the games.

Coltssb, I too am sorry for your negative experience. As a lifelong Buckeye fan I have found myself apologizing way to much for my fan base. Though I agree with what has been said here about idiot fans being everywhere, I do think Ohio State suffers from a disproportionate number. I have been at to many games over the years both at the Shoe and on the road and I have yet to see another fan base as stupid and rude as our's. I hear a lot about the SEC fan base being bad in some venues but Columbus does not take a back seat to anyone.

I know and it's an embarrassment to the big ten conference to have fans like this. No place for it in college football. Now with the players getting free cars (which, of course, has been reported a million times without osu doing anything), it just keeps getting worse and worse. The conference has to step in and do something.
