I have very little to say about the Ohio Bobcats, other than giving you the Twitter rundown. I don't like them, and neither should you. If it weren't for Rufus taking out Brutus Buckeye, I don't know what positive thing I'd have. But the guy inside of Rufus wasn't even an OU student. Can't even do that right, guys.
Bryan Vance, who runs Hustle Belt, is both an Ohio fan and a St. Louis Cardinals fan, so he's going to be extra insufferable for you Buffalo/Red Sox fans like Tim out there. Just remember, if you dislike the Red Sox, you also dislike the Cardinals, you just don't know it because they hide behind their Midwestern charm. Also, Anheuser Busch is a terrible company and you can find better beer in my dad's basement.
You'll discover that (1) Head Coach Frank Solich does not have a twitter account. I'm just as shocked as you guys. (2) Ohio has a ton of media covering it, a lot more than any This Week in #MACtion yet. (3) Ohio has not one, but two squirrel-related twitter accounts. I really just don't understand at this point. I swear I'm not looking hard for them just to keep a joke going.
First the general MAC folks always worth a follow:
