TCU Gets Congratulated on Rose Bowl Win with Billboards in Columbus, Ohio

As if Ohio State University president Gordon Gee didn't look dumb enough already, there is a TCU fan that wants to make sure he eats his words.

Earlier in November, Gee offended a good deal of college football fans around the country with this infamous quote:
"Well, I don't know enough about the X's and O's of college football, I do know, having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it's like murderer's row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day."
While his school won their Sugar Bowl game against Arkansas (amidst some controversy on whether the Tat-5 should be allowed to play), the rest of the Big Ten, my Alma Mater included, went 0-5 on New Years Day (Iowa and Illinois both won their pre-2011 bowl games). To make matters worse, one of the "party-crashing" schools Gee bashed, TCU, defeated Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl and became the first non-automatic BCS qualifying school to win the Rose Bowl ever.

Gee apologized for his comments, but that didn't stop one TCU fan from spending a decent amount of cash on 20 electronic billboards across Columbus. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here is a shot of one of the billboards in Ohio:

In case it's too small for you to read, the billboard is from the "Little Sisters of the Poor." Karma is a bitch, and the state of Ohio is always getting slapped by her. I don't care what anyone says about conference loyalty; show me one true University of Michigan fan who cheers for Ohio State ever, and I'll show you someone who doesn't really bleed maize and blue.
