OSU = football school. Cincinnati? Um ...

Listen to me. I'm not this mean. I don't intend for this to be as petty as it's going to sound. But I have to tell you one, just one, of the differences between a big-time football school like Ohio State ... and a smaller sibling like Cincinnati.

It's a detail, but details matter. Here it comes:

I'm eating the pregame meal before the Iowa-at-Ohio State game, and they have a McDonald's McFlurry station set up. Plus McDonald's iced coffee. That's in addition to a solid meal of BBQ and potato salad and so forth.

That's now. Last night, at the West Virginia-at-Cincinnati game, they also served BBQ. Fine dinner. But at halftime, their idea of nourishment was to scoop the leftover baked beans into a tin and set the tin on a table, next to a pile of paper plates. Here you go, media. Eat up.

At halftime of this OSU game, I expect more McDonald's. Maybe some pizza.

Just noting. There's money at OSU. And there's cold baked beans at Cincinnati. As far as analogies go, that's a good one.
