Don’t wear scarlet at the game Saturday!!!!

Written September 29th, 2009 by Jeff at The BBC

Our friends at Boiled Sports, a Purdue blog, have brought something to our attention and we want to spread the word.

If you’re going to Bloomington for the Ohio State game this weekend, I have a warning for you – Indiana is going to use you.

Indiana University Memorial Stadium has made a few renovations and now has a brand spankin’ new addition to it.  But they haven’t taken any aerial photos of it yet that they can use for the media guide and other various promotional articles.  Their plan is to take these photos on Saturday afternoon.

Here’s the kicker – the reason they’re taking these photos this weekend is because they know the stadium will be filled to the brim….with Buckeye fans.  Buckeye fans wear scarlet/red to their games.  So do Indiana fans.  That large crowd of  fans will all be wearing the same color, and will therefore make it look like the entire stadium is filled with Indiana fans….see the point?

As a result, Boiled Sports has a great idea and The BBC fully supports this movement…..

Wear gray.

If you’re going to Bloomington as a Buckeye fan, wear gray.  Don’t let Indiana use your attendance to promote THEIR stadium.

Wear gray.

Odds are good that Memorial Stadium will be half-filled with Ohio State fans.  We’ve dominated their stadium before, and they’re actually COUNTING on that in 2009.  We’ve shown Indiana that we’ll be there and we will take over.  Here’s some awesome proof of that;

We will once again take over their stadium, but don’t let them promote their own new renovations by publishing pictures of Buckeye fans.

Wear gray. Please.
