BCS Championship GameApparently the people in charge in Columbus, Ohio are preparing for the worst. There’s a story on ESPN’s site about how they are planning how to handle rioting in the (unlikely) event that Ohio State beats Florida in Monday night’s BCS Championship game. What does it say about your school and your community when everyone running things plans for a riot in case something great happens? When Florida won the national championship in ’96, there was plenty of celebrating, but certainly no rioting.

Florida fans never storm the field, never tear down goalposts. Whether you love him or hate him, you have to give credit to Spurrier for that. We expect to win. Win or lose, we are still champions. Go Gators!

There is one comment on this post

  1. Not sure what it says about the school unless the students begin a riot, and equating fans with students seems a broad-brush approach.

    I’ll bet ya two orders of Skyline Chili to a bag of oranges that Ohio State wins though.
