    Ah, obviously Carson has never met any USC football fans or he could never make those comments with a straight face. And what a stupid thing for him to do. I'm guessing a significant portion of Bengals fans are also OSU fans. I can't imagine they're going to take too kindly to these comments.

    I'm not too sure that most Bengals fans are Ohio State fans. I lived in Cincy as a kid and now live in Columbus, and I don't EVER remember my family caring about OSU. It went LaSalle, Reds, Bengals, UC, XU - in that order. I'm not even all that sure that Cincy folk even identify with Ohioans. They kind of live on their own planet.

    As a Buckeye and Bengal fan I couldn't possibly care less. He went to USC, they play OSU this year, of course he's going to get pumped up and talk a little trash about it. It certainly won't stop me for cheering for him.

    I agree, sure maybe its something that CP shouldn't have said but who really cares.

    Go Bucks and Bengals!!!

    I agree I am both a Buckeyes and a Bengals fan and it doesn't bother me at all.

    I give him a free pass. As a Buckeyes fan I can image how others feel dropping in this area.

    I'd probably get sick of hearing great the local conference is, and how over-rated my conference is on a daily basis. I'd probably get sick of seeing their flags, license plates, chairs, yard signs, etc.

    I'm sure he is sick of it, and he was talking to a USC fan base. Meh.

    He's a USC product, and he issued a little good-natured trash-talk. He probably hears 10 times as much trash-talk from tOSU fans, so he's just giving a little back.

    It's not like he said anything insulting. He just said that he constantly hears how great tOSU is, and he hopes his alma mater can win and shut up those Buckeye fans.

    Re: Carson Palmer rips Buckeyes

    I'm not an OSU fan, but I know a lot of them. Not just regular fans either, the type that think OSU can do no wrong. Those types are a rarity, but they are annoying. I also see those types a lot who are UK fans. I constantly have people ask me how I'm not a fan of OSU. They always say something along the lines of "well you live in Ohio, so you have to like them." To which I always reply, "well then do you like Ohio University football?" I'm a UC fan all the way, but if Carson decided to rip the Bearcats to an audience where he played college football I wouldn't even blink. The guy played for USC, of course he doesn't like the Buckeyes. Just because he plays in Cincinnati doesn't mean he has to please OSU fans. Not everyone likes OSU, and if you get all riled up over this you may be the reason they don't like OSU.

    Barry Larkin probably didn't like OSU either.

    Re: Carson Palmer rips Buckeyes

    I'm a Bengals fan and I can't stand the Buckeyes football program. Its like Duke, only with a less interesting coach.

    Kidding fellas, but I do dislike them.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Carson Palmer knows his football.

    If they're really mad, maybe the Buckeyes can get one of their NFL Starting QB alums to debate the point with him.

    Careful, the Ravens just might be dumb enough to start Troy Smith this year.
