The Bobcats are on the prowl in Boise this week preparing to take on the Utah State Aggies in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Utah State has had a great season and I'm looking forward to a great game. In fact, I can say with certainty the Potato Bowl is the bowl I'm most looking forward to this holiday season.
In case you're wondering, let me share a few facts about Ohio University. Founded in 1804, it's the oldest University in the Northwest Territory and the 9th oldest public University in the United States. OU is known for it's journalism program, we say "you can't spell jOUrnalism without OU!"
Some famous OU graduates include the Today Show's Matt Lauer, Nancy Cartwright-the voice of Bart Simpson, President of Fox News Roger Ailes, and baseball Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt.
Our football team on the other hand, hasn't always experienced great success until recently. During the 5 years I spent on campus (I know you should graduate in 4 years!) our football team won just 9 games! This season the Bobcats have won 9 games, it's been fun to watch the transition.
It's going to be a great game Saturday and an opportunity for 2 great schools to show the country what they're all about. I wish the Aggies luck, but not too much GO BOBCATS!!
