Many people ask me why I love Ohio, and THE Ohio State University “Buckeyes”.
Due to this video, maybe I won’t have to explain my loyalty and love of all things “Buckeyes” as much as I usually do.
To open the season this year, THE Ohio State Buckeyes play The Naval Academy in Columbus on September 5, 2009.
To encourage the 110,000 fabulous fans who will fill the seats of the ‘Horseshoe’ that afternoon, the media department of Ohio State has started a new tradition a patriotism for the NCAA.
Ohio State’s Head Coach Jim Tressel is a man of great faith, character and patriotism.
Tressel wears the American Flag on his ’sweater or jacket’ each week, in honor of our troops in active duty. Tressel’s respect for the military has spread throughout the campus, and was a great reason in Ohio State scheduling the Naval Academy for the ‘home opener’ in 2009.
Do yourself a favor, watch this video, and try to encourage this type od respect, ethic and patriotism across the NCAA playing fields in the years to come.
