There was plenty of anxiety in Columbus in 2011 as the Jim Tressel era came to a sudden end with the infamous tattoo scandal. The mood around The Ohio State University was somber, and things didn’t get much better as the team struggled under Luke Fickell.
The issue went far beyond football. Ohio State is a key ingredient to the Columbus and Ohio economies, and it’s also a huge asset for the self-image of the state. In an era where states battle one another for jobs, every little thing matters.
It’s also a huge driver for the love of sports and games in the state. When the Buckeyes are playing, you can rest assured that tons of Ohio State fans are putting their money where their mouth is, either in office pools or in online games. I’m sure there are plenty of people in Ohio playing online bingo as well. Visit super free bingo sites and get yourself update about latest free bingo offers. But you know that football still drives much of the online gaming interest.
Fortunately for Buckeye fans, Urban Meyer has come to the rescue. His recruiting class is shaping up as a monster class. He’s benefiting from a number of factors, including the fiasco at Penn State. The Buckeyes nabbed four recruits who previously committed there.
While the Buckeyes can’t play in a bowl next year, expect Buckeye Nation to be very active again!
