Well, we are wrapping up the 12th week of the Capital One Mascot Challenge. Brutus, my beloved buckeye, is placed 5th which will guarantee him a spot in the playoffs. This week Brutus is up against The Duck from Oregon, who is in fourth. I have a feeling that The Duck will get thrown down a notch or two after this weeks battle. Buckeye fans have been loyal, and as of this morning, Brutus has a strong lead. NOW, that does not mean slack off and stop voting. You saw what happened when we did that against Cincinatti… sigh. They blindsided us at the tail end. Darn Bearcat!
Next week begins the payoff series. We Buckeyes still have a chance to pull off a win and send Brutus to the Capital One Bowl. I am sure once the cold Ohio winter starts to set in, Brutus will be craving a little warmth and sunshine. So let’s vote Brutus to the top! Voting is easy. You can either vote online or text “Brutus” to 69866. Texting is fast, fun and easy. Remember – You can text up to 250 times and hour! That is a lot of buckeye love my friends, a lot of buckeye love. Duck anyone??
