Fast Turtle Passing

For my Buckeye fans. It's the BIg Ten Game for the Turtle - Ohio St. Buckeyes vs. Fighting Illini of Illinois. Today at Noon ET.


About the famed Illibuck pass: "The Illibuck is a wooden turtle trophy presented to the winner of the Ohio State-Illinois football game. Two junior honorary societies, Bucket and Dipper of Ohio State and Atius-Sachem of Illinois, are responsible for the care of the Illibuck. Originally the "trophy" was a live turtle when the tradition began in 1925, picked for its long life expectancy as a symbol of the long life of the rivalry. Since the passing of the original turtle in 1927 nine wooden replica Illibucks have been carved, each with the scores from games on its back (Source: Wikipedia)

Also noting: Michigan Wolverines vs. Hoosiers. In Bloomington 3:30 today. Go Blue?
