OU! OH YEAH!
I am in complete disbelief. Totally unreal.
The Ohio Bobcats Football team, which used to be an oxymoron, has clinched the MAC East!
For the first time in nearly 40 years, the Bobcats get to play in the post season. The MAC championship is going to be held at Ford Field in Detroit, then pretty much win or lose, OU will appear in a bowl game.
I've been a Bobcat fan since I first set foot on the Athens campus back in '02. Most of my focus has been on the basketball team, however. The football team was generally only expected to win a game or two per season, and most fans attend the games only to see the Marching 110 perform.
After McDavis brought in Frank (the tank) Solich, the team has certainly picked up. Last night's result is all the proof I needed.
I couldn't be prouder of this Bobcats squad. It's about time for some good action in Peden Stadium. I just hope I can manage to get to the bowl game.
