Fight On


Wow, Carson Palmer's agent must have passed out when he heard about this radio interview that Palmer gave out in California. Needless to say, I don't think he is going to be a very popular figure in Columbus, Ohio this year. (Note to Columbus tv programmers, just because Carson Palmer called out the Buckeyes, please don't take it out on the Bengal fans living in Central Ohio by not showing Bengal games.)

Here's the full text of Palmer's trash talk about Ohio State (the audio is in the link):

"I don't watch what I say. I cannot stand the Buckeyes, and having to live in Ohio and hear those people talk about their team, it drives me absolutely nuts . . . It's amazing to hear what those guys think about that university and what they think about that football program and (Ohio State coach Jim) Tressel and all the crap I gotta put up with being back there. I just can't wait for two years from now when SC comes to the 'Shoe and I get to hopefully, hopefully we'll have a home game that weekend and I can go up there and watch us pound on them in their own turf and kind of put all the talk to rest. Because I'm really getting sick of it and I just can't wait for this game to get here so they can come out to the Coliseum and experience LA and get an old-fashioned Pac-10 butt-whoopin' and go back to the Big Ten . . . I can't wait."

I love it.

As an ND fan living in Cleveland for the last 6 years, I absolutely love it. There's nothing more that brings me greater satisfaction than walking around town wearing my random Florida gear. Those Buckeye nuts get furious.

I'm a Buckeye and even I love it. The only thing I'm disappointed in is that Carson attempted to retract his comments when this story started to blow up. Stick to your guns! I've never been a big fan of people getting sensitive just because someone has an opinion about his/her sports team. Carson put himself out there and said what he feels. I respect him a lot more than Phil Mickelson. The Trojans vs. Buckeyes in September is the game of the century!
