The Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines are one of the biggest rivalries in all of sports and their fans take the rivalry very seriously.
One of the most diehard Ohio State fans made his mark on the rivalry, turning down a job offer simply because the job was in the state of Michigan. He uploaded his hilarious response to the job offer on Twitter.

This is exactly the type of diehard fan that makes college football so special. Derrick obviously takes his fanhood very seriously, although it would be interesting to see what he would say to a contract that would make him a millionaire.
That being said, the Buckeyes should make this fan very special and give him some tickets to a game after this story.
Stories like this one always break throughout the season and we likely haven’t heard the last of them this year. Ohio State is currently viewed as a legitimate championship contender, which would be their second championship in as many years.
Expect to see Derrick’s following on Twitter rise dramatically and if you are a Buckeye fan make sure to follow in his footsteps.
