Carson Palmer Probably Doesn’t Like Ohio State
Posted by Matt on July 21, 2008
When Carson Palmer speaks, we tend to listen. And when The Savior went on KLAC, a Los Angeles area-based radio station, last week speak he did when asked about the upcoming Southern California versus Ohio State gridiron battle:
“I cannot stand the Buckeyes. And having to…having to live in Ohio and hear those people talk about their team it drives me absolutely nuts. And we finally got Keith Rivers out there and we got Frostee Rucker, we finally got a couple…a couple other SC guys but it’s amazing to…to hear what those guys think about that university and what they think about that football program and Tressel and all the crap I’ve got to put up with being back there. I just can’t wait for two years from now when SC comes to the ‘Shoe and I get to hopefully…hopefully we’ll have a home game that weekend and I can go up there and watch us pound on them on their own turf and kind of put all the…all the talk to rest ’cause I’m really getting sick of it. And I just can’t wait for the game to get here so they can come out to the Coliseum and experience LA and get an ol’ fashioned Pac-10 butt whoopin’ and go back to the Big Ten.”
Ah, it’s like a breath of fresh air, isn’t it? Have I mentioned “Carson Palmer” and “The Savior” in the same sentence yet?
I can’t really blame Carson, the obnoxiousness of the fans of Ohio State…sorry, THE Ohio State…really chaps my ass too and their arrogance is really unparalleled. I, too, have enjoyed sending them back to the Big Ten after ol’ fashioned SEC butt whoopin’s the last two National Championship games and I’m excited to see those west coast boys make it their own, adding a little California flavor in non-conference play.
Of course roughly half — if not more — of Ohio State’s in-state followers are poverty-stricken fans of the Cleveland Clowns so these comments will only add fuel to the Bengals/Browns rivalry but one has to wonder how fans of both the Buckeyes AND the Bengals will react.
Does Palmer, a guy who has gradually brought the Bengals franchise out of the depths of obscurity, and Cincinnati’s lovable losers stay in the good graces of the average Bengals/Buckeyes fan? Or do the minions revolt against Cincinnati’s signal caller, standing up for the university they root for and a place they haven’t even sniffed the trash cans of?
(Editor’s Note: It should be noted that Carson’s comments are allegedly in response to being asked about a caller claiming that the Buckeyes were going to slaughter the Trojans.)
