Jim Harbaugh may be the most passionate individual in college football, but Ohio State has to have the most passionate fanbase. To show just how much they support their team, a group of Buckeye fans walked 19 miles in order to spell out “Ohio” on Google Maps. The entire journey took them 6.5 hours and was first published on Reddit’s Columbus site.

Script Ohio is one of the most famous traditions in college sports and it is the signature formation of OSU’s marching band. The band members align themselves to spell out “Ohio” during halftime and the dotting of the “i” is the capstone. The fans who walked the 19 miles didn’t veer far from tradition and their “dotting of the ‘i'” was when they finished at Ohio Stadium.

Next, maybe the fans can ‘walk out’ the name of who they think should be the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes. Rather they are rooting for him or not, I suspect those fans would rather it be “JT” than “Cardale.”
