8 Thoughts Ohio State Students Have The Week They Play Xichigan
Alexis Collins

It's finally time for Ohio State to beat The Team Up North again and Ohio State students are more ready than ever. The draining of Mirror Lake cannot stop the Buckeye spirit.

Should I sell my ticket because I'm broke or go to the best game of the season?

As fun as the Michigan game is, there are days when 500 dollars sounds a lot better. Student tickets don't always go for that much, but if your tickets are in Block O, that's a pretty accurate count. The experience will always beat the money because watching the game on the TV screen while all of your friends are there is not even half as fun.

Did they really HAVE to drain Mirror Lake?

While I understand that it is for the safety of the students, draining Mirror Lake seems a little dramatic. If the students want to jump in, we should be allowed. Everyone should assume their own responsibility if they jump because we know what can happen. Not to mention, draining is just a lot more effort than was actually necessary.

All the X's must have taken a lot of time to put up

There are A LOT of M's around campus, so taking the time to cover them up is no easy feat. Major props to the people who take the time to put them all up. From McPherson to the Medical Center, they have every single one covered.

If we lose to Michigan, I'm dropping off the face of the Earth

This is the most anticipated game of the year for Ohio State fans, which really puts the pressure on. From shameless jabs at Michigan, nearly every day of the year to the immense trash talking the day of the game, I don't even want to think of what a loss feels like.

How does one stay warm and look spirited?

The ultimate challenge for later season games. The cold definitely limits what you can wear, but scarlet and gray must prevail as the main colors of the day. They make clothes specifically for this day, just check out Clothing Underground or any of the Instagram pages that make clothes for block. Throw on gloves and a hat and it's like it's not even that cold out.

Is 3 a.m. too early to start tailgating?

Probably not. People start as soon as they get back to campus from Thanksgiving break. Morale is at an all-time high and people are fueled by Thanksgiving dinner and hatred for Michigan. It's a great day to be a Buckeye.

Michigan is not even that good

Regardless what the rankings show right now, Michigan has not beaten Ohio State in years. They really do not have much backing of any claim that they are better because they can never seem to beat us.

Go bucks. That's all.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
