tOfficial "what to call Ohio?" thread

  • sorry a little late to this argument cause i was taking a final at OU. I'm a senior at OU so i have two more years of experience at OU then you do. I also played football here for three years so i have a pretty good idea of how people feel about our sports and Suckeye sports. You clearly didn't read what i posted. I said any TRUE BOBCAT fan hates OSwho just as much as a Michigan fan does. That statement is 100% correct. i never said if bobcat fans like Michigan, and i never said if the general population at OU likes the buckeyes. I just said trust me OU FANS hate OSwho as well. You are 100% correct that the majority of OU students are buckeye fans and that we are not fond of OSwho students. They "think" their better then we are and are just pissed that they cant party at the level we do.

    btw O-H-I-O is the name of OHIO UNIVERSITY not your school. Idk if you realize but you jackasses stole that from OU so stop acting like its so damn cool and original cause its not.

  • What is a true bobcat? Saying that someone isn't a true Bobcat because they like both OU and OSU is frankly very offensive to me. I love OU and would still be there If they had a better business school. I guess starting this conversation was pointless because the conversation is completely relative and based on our own experiences and opinions. My experience there was apparently a lot different than yours but you admitting that the majority of OU students are also Buckeye fans is all I needed to hear because that's what I've been trying to say. You can't say that your definition of a true Bobcat is what a true Bobcat actually is. That's your opinion and everyone's opinion is different...and well, what you're saying about OSU stealing O-H-I-O is also a flawed statement because you aren't thinking about the historical context. OSU didn't "steal" anything from OU. Ohio State has been Ohio's flagship school for a century, and the O-H-I-O tradition is a century old as well. Ohio State has always been a lot larger than OU and when that tradition was established, OSU was a lot more prevalent that OU and at the time, nobody saw a problem with it. The tradition has continued over the years, and it shouldn't change just because OU has become a much larger school in the past few decades

  • Sorry to offend u weezy baby. How cant i say that?? Someone who loves OU sports hates the buckeyes plane and simple. They may not hate them for the right reason. It's kinda like how MSU fans hate UofM fans. MSU will always be UofM's little brother. They can cry all they want but it's never gonna change. MSU fans hate that and because of it they have alot of hatred towards Michigan. They find Michigan fans arrogant, just like OU fans find suckeye fans to be.

    We both have different perspectives and i appreciate yours. However, because i played football at OU for three years i hung around a lot of students that loved bobcat sports and only bobcat sports. That's how i get my opinion of what i True bobcat fan really is.

  • Hmm, well I disagree with that statement. I understand you were on the football team and everything, but like I said, I have met very few OU students that aren't also Buckeye fans. I also have literally never met a single person that ever compares OU sports teams to Buckye sports teams because there simply isn't really anything to compare. MSU and UM are both in the same conference and have been actual rivals for decades. OU and OSU are nothing like that...I guess being on the football team is what gave you that opinion and i guess that that makes sense, but the majority of OU students don't feel that way. They simply hate OSU students because they think that they are cocky douchebags, just like Miami. But like I said, we apparently were around 2 completely different demographics with you being on the football team, and me not being on the team. I guess that we'll just agree to disagree haha

  • Very true with OU not comparing to the buckeyes, but you would be surprised what some OU fans think. I agree with you in that matter but ever since we hung in there with the buckeyes four years ago they think that they have a chance. Like i said these guys are hard core OU fans. LIke when you turn the tv on to espn on a tue night and watch Ohio vs buffalo, they are the 10 OU fans at buffalo with their shirts off. I also live with another 4 of them so they are here. I would say that if you like a college football team at OU then 80% of them are buckeye fans. Another 10% different teams and 10% hardcore bobcat fans who only like the bobcats. Agree to disagree though haha. It's defiantly sucky to play a game and then walk around and see all the buckeye jerseys. I don't play anymore so i cant really complain about that considering i wear my Wolverine jersey every Saturday!!

    Regardless this is a silly conversation. I simply was just pointing out that if you really love OU sports, then you hate the buckeyes just as much as a Wolverine fans does. Luckily for me i am a Wolverine fan and root for the bobcats so i hate OSwho either way!!

  • Well, that makes sense that there are a few people that are like that. it's the same way with some others at BG, Akron and other schools like that. Of course there are some people that hate OSU, but the majority are still OSU fans because a lot of the students grew up in Ohio rooting for OSU...I guess I got confused when you said true Bobcat because I thought that you meant like a Bobcat student instead of a Bobcat fan. I guess I just don't think that way because me and everyone that I met and was around when I was there didn't really care too much about OU sports because none of their teams were really that good. Regardless, I respect your opinion haha

  • I respect yours as well. I did say true bobcat fan in my first message though. Trust me i realize that most people don't care about OU sports. In fact you could prob through me in there as well. I root for OU sports, but my allegiance is to Michigan. The ones that do care though, don't like the buckeyes.

    You lived on west green though?? I did as well, lived in Sargent for 2 years.

  • Haha well I guess I just didn't see the fan part for some reason, my bad...and yeah, I loved it, there's no place like Athens. Although, I will admit that I got tired of it a little bit because partying is basically all that there really is to do. That's why I love Columbus now. Hate it all you want, but there's always something to do here haha
