Do some guys announce their high school rather than their colleges? Sour grapes, me thinks
i think its kinda cool when a couple guys do that
The need for extra attention. They know Al Michaels will follow up by telling the audience what college he went to.
I always thought that those who mention their High Schools are ones who did not attend college and were walk-on's during team tryouts....
I doubt there are that many walk-ons that start games on Monday Night Football in the NFL.
Can someone tell me why players from Ohio State must say Thee Ohio State? Are they afraid someone might confuse their school with Ohio University?
It's a BUCKEYE thing, y'all wouldn't understand
"Can someone tell me why players from Ohio State must say Thee Ohio State?"
They are contractually obligated by the boosters that paid their way through school.
The whole "Thee Ohio State University" thing is no where near as annoying as Miami guys that say they graduated from "The U," like it's the only university in the world.
