After reading countless comments over the past few years, I felt the need to express my opinion on a “true” Buckeye fan. This is one person’s opinion so please feel free to add your suggestions as well. 1. A true Buckeye fan is a person that understands what it means to be a Buckeye. They live, breathe and bleed Buckeye football – but in their own way. Just because you can name every player since 1922 doesn’t mean you bleed Scarlet any more than the rest of us.

2. A true Buckeye knows who Woody, Art, Archie and Pete are even if they weren’t around to see them coach and play. I know who Abraham Lincoln is – I didn’t have to watch him lead to know that he did. 3. A true Buckeye can be any age. A woman who understands football and loves Ohio State Buckeyes. You don’t have to be a fan for 60 years to know Buckeye football. Just because you baby-sat Howard Cassady doesn’t mean you are any more of a fan than the next person.
4. You don’t have to live in Ohio or be from Ohio to be a “true” fan. I don’t care if you were born on the 50 yard line in The ‘Shoe, that doesn’t make you a bigger Buckeye than a fan from Alaska or Wyoming. 5. You didn’t have to go to Ohio State or graduate from Ohio State to be a true fan. Some people actually think because they have a piece of paper from OSU that they are entitled to more of an opinion than everyone else. No…that just means your student loan is higher.
