Media Blog readers in Ohio, spread the word. Joe Biden is calling you guys out:
Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., spent the past two days trying to win over Ohio voters, but he may have undermined that work in one quick dis of the Ohio State Buckeyes football team Friday morning.
Before boarding his flight from Wilmington, Del., to Washington, D.C., the loquacious Blue Hen displayed some Fightin’ Blue Hen alumni bravado in an impromptu airport meeting with the University of Delaware football team.
“I was out in Ohio,” he said, clutching a football. “I told the folks in Ohio that we’d kick Ohio State’s ass!”
The Buckeyes might be coming off a 35-3 drubbing at the hands of top-ranked Southern Cal, but the Blue Hen ballers aren’t exactly world beaters, themselves. Delaware is ranked sixth in the Division I-AA coaches poll, but they lost earlier this month to Maryland.
O! H! . . .
UPDATE: It’s statistically tied in Michigan? If true, and in the spirit of Big Ten bipartianship, Go Blue!
