This is for Stanford fans. Just letting you know that Cleveland is the biggest Ohio State butt kissing city in America. They believe their Buckeyes are better than everybody else because of their football team. Even better than Stanford, USC, and UCLA. Cleveland treats their local colleges like dirt and kisses the rear end of tOSU. The Cleveland sports media can't stop kissing tOSU's rear end. It is disgusting. Who cares that Stanford, USC and UCLA have over 100 team national titles. They are superior to you because of their multi million dollar football team. And that is the bottom line because Cleveland's tOSU butt kissing sports media says so.
