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 – he either picks against OSU on television or he goes after their fan base on Facebook/Twitter. May’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 — Mark May (@mark_may) February 25, 2013 They remind me of buckeye fans — Mark May (@mark_may) February 25, 2013 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 doesn’t want May’s support, however: NOOO Mark May picked us!!!! lol — Carlos Hyde (@El_Guapo34) October 4, 2013 It seems that Ohio State’s players, at least, are happy keeping May in the villainous role he so well plays. That being said, they also probably hope he’s right about Saturday’s result.
