Ohio State has happy fans, Jeff Heuerman humiliates Jake Butt, and more

Ohio State Buckeyes-football-fans

Ohio State football is the No. 1 topic in Wake Up Sloopy every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Ohio State fans are loving life

Who has it better than the Ohio State Buckeyes? Nobody, apparently.

ESPN’s newfangled Fan Happiness Index came to that conclusion, ranking the Buckeyes No. 1 of FBS teams in terms of how fans feel about their team.

Michigan was No. 22, in part because “rivalry dominance” was one of the six factors.

Jake Butt’s amazing haircut

Rookie haircuts are a time-honored tradition in the NFL, and Jake Butt got an amazing one Tuesday.

He was drafted by Denver, which also employs former Buckeyes tight end Jeff Heuerman. It appears Heuerman took it upon himself to remind Butt about Michigan’s recent futility against the Buckeyes.

Butt had a block O shaved into the back of his head and 0-4 on the side, a reminder of his record against the Buckeyes.

Billy Price honored

Billy Price hasn’t played a single snap at center, but that didn’t stop him from earning preseason All-American honors from The Associated Press.

It certainly helps that Price is heading into his fourth year as a starter and was an All-American offensive guard in 2016. Additionally, Pat Elflein made the exact same transition from guard to center and won the 2016 Rimington Trophy as the nation’s best center.
