ESPN college football analyst Mark May is not a very popular figure in Columbus, Ohio. May, who is not shy about his disdain for Ohio State, usually riles up the Buckeyes faithful in one of two ways â€“ he either picks against OSU on television or he goes after their fan base on Facebook/Twitter.
Mayâ€™s incessant trolling on Twitter has led to gems like the one below, in which he attempts to compare OSU fans to zombies:
Watching walking dead family and friends making me pretty cool watch

They remind me of buckeye fans

Well, this week, May flipped the script and picked the Buckeyes to beat No. 16 Northwestern in Evanston. OSU running back Carlos Hyde made it clear he doesnâ€™t want Mayâ€™s support, however:
NOOO Mark May picked us!!!! lol

It seems that Ohio Stateâ€™s players, at least, are happy keeping May in the villainous role he so well plays. That being said...

Apparently ESPN College GameDayâ€™s Lee Corso is tired of picking the underdog. Corso, who has been wrong more often than heâ€™s been right this season, went â€śback to basicsâ€ť and chose Ohio State to knock off Northwestern in Evanston later tonight. The Buckeyes are favored by approximately a touchdown, for what itâ€™s worth.
There were no live animals this time around â€“ just...
College GameDay was at Northwestern today and luckily for me that is right in my backyard. I took the 30 minute drive from Chicago to Evanston to see how Wildcats fans get down.

When the Ohio State Buckeyes come to Evanston Saturday, they promise to pose a major challenge to Northwestern. But just what is this challenge going to look like, and how can the Wildcats overcome it? Sylvan Lane offers his analysis in this Opponent Preview.
Northwestern looked like it might be on its way to that signature win, the kind that would show the Wildcats can beat the best in the Big Ten.
Ohio State simply refused to sign off on it.
So the Wildcats settled for a close loss, knowing they gave the Buckeyes their best shot on a wet and wild night at Ryan Field and it still wasn't enough.
Carlos Hyde ran for a career-high...
College GameDay is coming to Evanston this Saturday for a battle between undefeated Northwestern and Ohio State. Thankfully for the Wildcats, Doug Meffley, Director of Digital and Social Communications, is helping to get the word out, in Paul Revere-like fashion.
