Those die-hard Ohio State Buckeyes fans are at it again. Buckeyes fans are so upset about their 11-0 football team being unable to participate in the postseason due to NCAA sanctions that they created a White House petition to ask President Obama to pardon the team. Here’s what the petition said (via With Leather): WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Pardon The Ohio State Buckeyes from unjust NCAA sanctions preventing their rightful access to a BCS bowl game. The Ohio State University football team is one win away from an undefeated season. However, due to imposed sanctions, they are not allowed to participate in their conference’s championship game or the following bowl season. While a punishment for past indiscretions is to be expected, a bowl season ban is too harsh for a few young men trading memorabilia for tattoos and some change. The offending players and coach who covered it up are no longer part of the program. Please exercise your executive power to pardon the NCAA’s excessive sanctions placed on The Ohio State Buckeyes to enable a rightful, satisfying culmination to the college football season for the American people. Though the petition no doubt garnered plenty of support from the fans, it was killed by the White House because it was in violation of the site’s terms. Buckeyes fans shouldn’t worry. They can instead choose to support a petition on the site that asks for the state of Ohio to secede from the United States and create its own government. In that case, they could pardon their football team. There are bombings and air strikes between Israel and Palestine, an impending fiscal cliff, the Petraeus scandal, and Ohio State fans are concerned about their team being left out of bowl season. I guess this is what they feel should be their reward for supporting Obama during the election. Get on it, Pres. H/T Hot Clicks
