Comments & Testimonials

Please share your experiences about positive sportsmanship and being a best fan at Ohio State, around the Big Ten and across the country!



  • What we witnessed last night(Sugar Bowl) was a display of character. pryor and those guys couldve packed it in and not given all they had. but they came out and made big plays, limited mistakes, and helped their team earn a victory that gets the SEC monkey off our back. whatever your opinions are about selling their rings, i think they deserve our forgiveness, because last night was a game we will remember for a very long time.

  • Scott Kubly and myself attened the Purdue at Ohio State game in 2008 and have never been as well received at an away football game. We will be returning this year to the Purdue at Ohio State game...and one of the main reasons is the great time we had with all of the Ohio State fans around us on the way walking to and from the game. The Ohio State University can be very proud of their change in sportsmanship to the visiting team fans. Thank you and we are looking forward to the return and a great day in Big Ten football spirit.
