The Buckeyes are going to Miami to play Clemson in the Orange Bowl.
No, it's not the BCS Championship but a BCS-sized consolation prize complete with sandy beaches, sunny skies and an atmosphere that will make any mention of anything having to do with Michigan seem a million miles away.
Of course, since the game will be played in the heat and humidity of South Florida, fans will need tee-shirts. Preferably Ohio State themed tee-shirts which allow buck-nuts to wear their colors on their sleeve.
Ohio State fans could go with a block "O" design, a "gold-pants" shirt highlighting the win over Michigan or the newly released Marcus Hall salute shirt.
This tee-shirt, available at Simply Vague at Polaris Fashion place features the now iconic image of the Ohio State lineman flipping the double birds at the Michigan Stadium crowd shortly after being ejected from the 2013 edition of The Game.
Hall's image makes up the "H" in the word Ohio. Just below that is the phrase "State of Mind".
The woman in the store says the shirt is the product of former Ohio State basketball player Brandon Fuss-Cheatham.
From fame and humiliation springs a fashion statement for the brash and crass class of the Buckeye fan base.
The moment was a costly one for Hall. He missed the final three quarters of his team's win over the maize and blue. He ended his career against Michigan with a moment that will endure forever.
Hall was reprimanded by the Big Ten. Urban Meyer benched Hall for the Big Ten championship game saying he was "disappointed by his actions."
His teammate, Corey Linsley told reporters Hall was "distraught and completely wiped out about what he did."
Hall has not spoken publicly about the moment, but he did offer an apology through his Twitter account which said in part, " My actions do not reflect who I am as a person and teammate. I love The Ohio State University and appreciate everything it has done for me."
And now there's a tee-shirt to help keep this moment fresh in everyone's mind including Hall's.
It's understandable. Ohio State fans love to share their hatred of all things Michigan with the world.
Somehow wins on the field are not enough. Dominating the series since the turn of the century is not enough.
Double Birds in the Big House serves as a simple lowest common denominator for fans who prefer sign language over any hint of sportsmanship.
As a result, a moment that embarassed and humiliated a Buckeye player, his coach and his university is celebrated as a great moment in the history of the Ohio State/Michigan rivalry.
Sadly, the tee-shirt will sell and someone will realize a profit. But this gain comes with a clear loss as well.
