The power (omnipotence?) of Buckeyes football among Columbus residents is enduring and unshakeable. If ever there was a year when Ohio State’s gridiron squad would be vulnerable in a popular vote, this is it; their 2011 was pretty much scandal followed by mediocrity with one really awesome Hail Mary in there somewhere. But this is a city built on college football, and love for Jim Tressel’s Luke Fickell’s Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes is unwavering enough to trounce even the elite basketball Buckeyes and the much-lauded Roller Girls. Turns out even when our honor is not quite defended, we will fight ’til the end for this team.
Runners-up: Ohio Roller Girls, Buckeyes basketball
