While OU head coach Frank Solich has the Bobcat football program on the rise, most Columbus-based Bobcats root for Buckeyes on gameday. So what's a fan to do? Do you root for the Bucks and turn your back on your alma mater for the sake of furthering a run to a BCS title bid?

While OU head coach Frank Solich has the Bobcat football program on the rise, most Columbus-based Bobcats root for Buckeyes on gameday. So whatís a fan to do? Do you root for the Bucks and turn your back on your alma mater for the sake of furthering a run to a BCS title bid?

Alive reporter and OU alum Chris DeVille insists you must be true to your school and root for the íCats. Fellow Alive writer and Ohio State alum John Ross believes self-proclaimed Buckeyes fan should never hope to spoil a potentially historic season.

Having attended both schools, I wore OU and Ohio State gear to the matchup in 2008. But a wishy-washy fan isnít appreciated by either side.

Given that Ohio State hasnít lost to an in-state school since 1921, Bobcat fans can cheer their hearts out for their team, knowing deep down that their efforts wonít do much.
