Donald Trump begins Ohio rally by praising Urban Meyer, Buckeyes football

It’s Super Tuesday, which means that we could very well know who our presidential candidates will be by the end of the day. Billionaire Donald Trump is the front-runner on the Republican ticket and appearing at a rally in Ohio today, the first thing he did was praise Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes’ football program.

Ohio doesn’t vote until the 15th, but is still a major swing state and it’s becoming clear that despite his front-runner status, GOP establishment would prefer not to have Trump be the nominee. One of Trump’s fellow candidates, John Kasich, also has the advantage in the Buckeye State after serving as the state’s governor.

That said, with Trump needing to earn as many brownie points as possible with undecided voters, especially in a swing state, it’s only natural that he would go for something nearly every Ohio native loves, which is Buckeyes football.

Just how Coach Meyer feels about it? Well, that’s still a mystery.
