8. A Lesson in Civility
It appears there are some (and I'm not mentioning names, but this thread is a fine example) who need to see how this works.

Fine work Buckeyes. Though I am far from a fan, it was a solid game and your win was hard won. Good job. Go to the Rose Bowl and do us here in the Big Ten proud.

As for the Hawks, maybe there are people who only understand life in terms of black and white, win and lose. I am far sorrier for people who have no respect for life's ambiguities, what a sad way to spend your life. Those boys play with heart and soul and love for game and are already years beyond anyone who thinks that loss in Columbus is anything to be anything other than completely proud of.
