Title: Ohio State Football: It's More than a Sport, It's a Religion
Creators: Dominique, Nicholas
Advisor: Urban, Hugh
Issue Date: 2011-06
Abstract: On and off the field, Ohio State Football stands for tradition and excellence, creating a discourse that is put into practice through a variety of rituals that are not only used within football but the university as a whole. The use of discourse and practice help to form the community of Ohio State followers including: students, alumni, faculty, and staff of The Ohio State University as well as everyday Joes across the state of Ohio and the nation. Blurring the line between what is to be considered religion; Ohio State Football’s practices, community, and discourse bring meaning to the world for its followers, providing for them a different way to encounter the sacred.
