I'm a big Ohio State Buckeye fan, always have been, always will be. If you asked me why, I couldn't give you the standard answer of I'm from Ohio, or that me or one of my siblings went their because none of that is true. I became a Buckeyes fan because the first college football game I can recall watching was the 2004 matchup between the Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes, I had watched plenty of professional football up until this point so I knew football, but I had never watched the college game. That all changed that day in late November when a Jim Tressel coached Buckeyes team who was 6-4 at the time beat the Michigan Wolverines who were 9-1 at the time. Why did I choose to root for the Buckeyes, because my older brother was rooting for Michigan, so I said why not root against him like I do in almost every other sport, and that's the day a young Buckeye fan was born. Also that game was then true emergence of Ohio State legend Troy Smith but that's a story for a different day. That brings me to my point of why I'm currently at a very confused point in my Buckeye fandom, all my life as a Buckeye fan all I've know is fuck Michigan, they suck, and we hate everything about them. Unfortunately for me, one of my favorite coaches in the game of football ended up their as the head coach of their football team, Jimmy Football Harbaugh. I've seen this guy turn Stanford into a great collegiate powerhouse, he turned the 49ers into a Super Bowl contender, and now he has Michigan returning to elite status. Seeing Michigan underachieve year after year made the college football season easy for me because even if we weren't winning national titles at Ohio State, we were still beating Michigan. Now even that part of our season is in serious question with Michigan being one of the most dominant teams in college football this year. I still hate Michigan, always will, but I love Jim Harbaugh, and I'm not afraid to admit it. When I saw him at the Cubs World Series game I almost lost it, this is a grown ass man who brought a baseball glove to the game like he was a joyous young kid naively hoping to catch his favorite players home run ball. He knew the cameras would be on him at some point, someone of that status does not go unnoticed at any sporting event let alone one of the biggest games of the year, and he still said I don't give a flying fuck what the twitter trolls think I'm going to game with a glove to catch a god damn home run ball. What a fucking LEGEND. The best part is the next day he was asked about it, and to sum up his response he broke down the art of how to get home run balls at baseball games like he was a home run catching connoisseur, he's even the most calculated guy in the chasing down home run balls department. Better look out Zack Hample aka foul ball guy, looks like you might have some serious competition when Harbaugh decides to hang up the headset for a glove. Harbaugh is the type of guy I want to play football for, he's a complete lunatic on the sideline, but when he's off the field he looks like the fun drunk uncle that everyone wants to hangout with, it's the perfect concoction of coaching traits. Jim Harbaugh, I don't know how you do it you recruiting genius, but you've captured the heart of an Ohio State Buckeye fan, so I realize now why all the 5 star recruits are lining up to go to Michigan. I mean I hope we still crush you on November 26th and ruin your CFB playoff hopes kinda like we did back in 2006 during the game of the century, but as a human being I genuinely think Jim Harbaugh is the fucking man. As a college football player I'd much rather play for a guy like Harbaugh, which there really is no one quite like him, than a guy like Nick Saban who makes me feel like I'm in a morgue every time he speaks. Every week it seems like Jimmy Harbaugh is doing some foolish thing that ends up on the internet, it never ends poorly for him it's always perceived well by the public, and I'm just convinced this guy is the happiest man on the planet living out his life long dream. Everybody should be taking notes from Jimmy Harbaugh on to live life to the fullest.
