Ohio State v. USC: The Politics Edition

Email Email Print

If you live, as I do, in southern California, you are surrounded by USC alums and supporters. They provide the noise, endlessly talking, talking, talking about the Trojans, and working on scripts, 99% of which never see the screen.

But they are very good at talking.

Ohio State grads and supporters by contrast are very good at doing.

Trojans dispute this of course. They dispute everything. Buckeyes just smile and get things done. But the argument lingers, at least among the Trojans.

So, a test. A USC alum, Congressman John Campbell, is a weekly visitor to my show. An Ohio State alum, Treasurer of the Buckeye State Josh Mandel, is a guest at least monthly. Campbell is running for re-election, Mandel for the United States Senate against the most liberal member of the Senate, Sherrod Brown.

Both need to add to their campaign coffers, so I am going to conduct a competition today through Monday at 3:00 PM.

This link takes you to the head-to-head page put together by my friends at As with my top 12 races, every dollar donated here goes entirely to the campaign, and as with every federal race, no individual can give more than $2,500 before the primary, and another $2,500 in the general. Both candidates have already hit up their friends, so this is a test of pure school affiliation energy. I fear that many would-be John Campbell supporters will talk and talk and talk about contributing $10, $50, $100 or more to the congressman while Treasurer Mandel amasses actual donations from real people, but we will see.

OK, Buckeye supporters, get out your wallets. Trojans to your conference rooms for pitch meeting.
