    As any Chicago Cubs fan will tell you, teams don’t even have to win to inspire loyalty.

    I’m not knocking athletics — I was a student-athlete and competed at the national level for small colleges — but let’s not confuse entertainment with education.

    If OSU sports teams never win another contest, OSU alums have plenty of worthwhile achievements to be proud of. This Boone-doggle isn’t one of them.
