Field of Beans

Scott McIntrye, a research associate with Ohio State University/Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center in Wooster, Ohio, has been busy on the job, strategically planting a soybean field to honor the Ohio State Buckeyes.

McIntyre spent six hours planting yellow-leafed soybeans amid a more typical green-leafed variety in the four-acre field consisting of 3,456 plots.

"That's the beauty of it — people don't know it's there," McIntyre said. "You can only see it if you're flying over it about 1,000 feet in the air."

Well, they know about it now. Thanks to Eleven Warriors.

That's admirable. But it would have been epic had he done it in a soybean field somewhere in Michigan instead.

I predict the Buckeyes loose to the Huskies today. Willingham is just getting into the groove. You see what's happened to Notre Dame w/ out Willingham and his players. Can I say an 0-3 start after today, for the Fighting Irish.

Congratulations goes to Scott McIntrye for honoring the Buckeyes.
Let's have OSU and USC January 1, 2008 in the Rose Bowl.
It's happened in the past. Time for a repeat ???
Would love to see the awesome OSU fans in Los Angeles. Best fans around!
Wishing the Buckeyes the best of luck.
