I venture to say that Browns fans are unanimously rooting for one team today, and that team is the Green Bay Packers. The Steelers, while already our historical rival, have a number of otherwise detestable characters and team traits. Packers stars include the scion of Browns great Clay Matthews and Northern Ohio native Charles Woodson.
As a warm-up to the football game, Ohio State travels to “The Barn” in Minneapolis to face a ranked Golden Gophers squad. Tip is set for 2 PM on ESPN. Ohio State is kicking off a brutal two and a half week stretch of their schedule this afternoon. It’s unlikely they escape with an undefeated record. Minnesota has frontcourt bodies in Ralphie Sampson and Trevor Mbakwe, that could present some resistance for Jared Sullinger.
It’s a great day to pig out and watch sports and OSU will provide the nice appetizer before kickoff. Leave your thoughts and predictions here as the afternoon and evening of games progress.
