Rose Bowl: Everything You Wanted to Know About Ohio State, We're Going To Ask


News
I've long been an admirer of Oregon Ducks blog Addicted To Quack and its weekly pregame feature exchanging questions and answers with a fan blog for the opposing team. And since a WW staffer has a brother who's a huge Ohio State fan, I'm going to take a run at doing something similar here in the run-up to the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 between Oregon and Ohio State. In other words, I'll ask him questions ...   More

Rose Bowl: Everything You Wanted to Know About Ohio State, We're Going To Ask


News
In this installment of "Everything You Wanted to Know About Ohio State" I ask Ohio State fan Noah Litton, Oregon fans are obviously jacked for the Rose Bowl because it's the first visit by the Ducks in 15 years.

Rose Bowl: Everything You Wanted To Know About Ohio State, We're Going To Ask

Everything Ohio State Wants To Know About Oregon, We're Going To Answer


News
Ohio State fanatic Noah Litton gets one final question in our pre-Rose Bowl Q & A about each other's teams before his Buckeyes take on my Oregon Ducks this Friday: How does Oregon poke through on what (at least in this part of the country) has been Ohio State's best defense in a decade?

Rufus tells ESPN he got the idea for his sneak attack from the Oregon Duck's attack of the Houston Cougar mascot in a 2007 game at Autzen Stadium. If you're interested in comparing the two mascot meltdowns, ...   More
