Michigan and Ohio State might not be playing for another week, but for one fan of the Wolverines, that doesn't mean it's not time to start the trolling.
The Buckeyes are in College Park this week for their matchup against the Maryland Terrapins, and who should show up but one very loud (and very dedicated) Michigan Wolverines fan. His one mission: heckle his most hated rivals.
This guy appears to be at the wrong game. But he’s enjoying his heckling of the Ohio State quarterbacks warming up and yelling about how good Shea Patterson is. I guess it’s almost time for The Game. pic.twitter.com/vfawPGUhc5— Austin Ward (@AWardSports) November 17, 2018
I have a lot of questions here. First, where did this guy come from? If he's a Michigan fan who happens to live in Maryland and wants to take advantage of the game's proximity to troll the Bucks, that's understandable. But if he traveled all the way from the midwest just to mess with OSU... now that is dedication.
Secondly, Michigan have only beaten Ohio State twice since the Clinton administration, and not once since 2011. Are you really sure you want to start your trolling now and not wait until, I don't know, you actually beat them for once?

I will say that I like how this fan's trolling involves talking about how good his quarterback is, despite the fact that he has nothing to do with the game at hand. Positive trolling is always my favorite kind of trolling.
It won't help Michigan win next week, but at least this fan is doing what he can.
