I’ve noticed where you guys have written some open letters to alumni before big games telling us what to wear and pleading for noise – the most recent being this year’s Ohio State game.
I have to admit I like the idea so I’m returning the favor as we head into the final two games of the season.
First of all, let me just say that I love you guys. I spent more years than I care to remember sneaking back into the student section so I can stand and yell the whole game without being told to sit down. I did it until it was just way too obvious that I didn’t belong there and retreated to my regular season ticket seats where I’ve had to deal with people four rows back telling me to sit down. Ugh.
The point is – I am one of you guys – just older.
So I must say that I’ve read with a mix of concern and despair that many of you have decided you won’t be at the Indiana and Wisconsin games because you’re going to go home and - gulp - stay home.
