Jeremy you're right about Pitt and Penn State vs WVU.
PSU droppped us when they went BIG TIME (I mean Big 11).

When I was very young the saying here was 'my favorite two teams are WVU and whoever's playing Pitt.'-- Not a lot of love for them.

Wheeling is about equi-distant between Morgantown and Piitsburgh. But you know that those country roads all lead to WEst Virginia. Sorry, I get carried away.

The Buckeyes are generally represented by the nut inside the buckeye "fruit." It has a little black spot on it. I don't think we have many buckeye trees around here.

I rooted against Ohio State for many years, but Jim Tressell is such a likable guy and he began recruiting a lot of Cleveland kids here. Many from one inner city school I follow, Glenville High School. Troy Smith, Ted Ginn Jr., and Donte Whitner all went there. I watched all of them in high school. Ted Ginn's father (Ted Ginn) is the high school coach.

The Buckeyes have seven kids from Glenville on their current roster. Their star running back Chris Wells is also a local kid (Akron, Ohio.) He will win the Heismann this year.

Ohio State plays at USC the third game of the season. That will be a jim dandy! They will breeze through the schedule after that game, either finish 12-0 or 11-1. I think this year's team can compete with the SEC's best.

I'm the biggest Trojan fan east of the Mississippi! Started watching them when I was a kid and loved the horse running around the Coliseum, the wacky band uniforms and the team colors. So they stuck when I got old enough to understand the game. Everything in my rec room that isn't Pittsburgh is USC. The Ohio St. game has been circled for a long time. Even with the dominance they have shown since Pete Carroll got there, "eastern" teams(SEC, Big 10, etc) still give them little respect. The Trojans will play with a chip on their shoulder. If Sanchez(SC QB) is as good as his hype coming out of high school, they are going to be REAL good.
