The biggest home game for Ohio State this season may end up being when Penn State visits Ohio Stadium on November 13. So perhaps that is motivating a new Facebook group of nearly 2,000 Ohio State students called, “Vuvuzela Day for Penn State.”
Ohio State student Dustin Stinson started the group and provided this inspirational message for Buckeyes fans:
Everyone bring a vuvuzela for the Penn State game and let’s bring some noise! We’re trying to get as many students as possible to bring them.
INVITE AS MANY PEOPLE FROM OHIO STATE TO JOIN AS YOU CAN!
Let’s do this.
As much as I poked around the Facebook group, it appears that Stinson and his brave, fellow students aren’t joking. (I messaged Stinson today about the group and await a response.) So I guess the idea behind the vuvuzelas is apparently to create a deafening din that would prevent Penn State from properly running its offense.
