Is there anything worse than the jackass who wears the shirt of an in-state rival and school he or she doesn’t go to around campus? Hey buddy, I don’t care how big of a fan of that school you were growing up–you go here now. Dress for the school you go to, not the one that denied you.
Steve Fuller, a professor at Cincinnati, shares this same sentiment, and he sent out a tweet that apparently caught the attention of these terrible individuals. He has since deleted the tweet, but luckily, it’s still alive through some retweets.
GOAT PROFESSOR AT UC RT @fullsteve: If you wear Ohio State gear in my classroom this week, you will fail my course.

It’s a little disappointing he backed down from his original statement, but he has since taken the attention in stride.
OK, Twitterverse, since my joke is going viral, how about this: If OSU beats UC, I’LL wear Ohio St. gear on UC’s campus Tuesday. #LordHelpMe — Steve Fuller (@fullsteve) September 23, 2014
Think I might have found the one. http://t.co/AlJek21UB8 Now I just need a good home to donate it to when UC wins. 🙂

Bold move on Steve’s part, as Cincinnati sits as a 16-point underdog to the Buckeyes. Regardless, you have to respect a man who sticks by his school. Here’s to you, Steve, and here’s to the Bearcats pulling off the upset..
