Ohio State would like fans to be enthusiastic, while still observing the diktats of Midwestern politeness. Per WNBS-10TV, the school has instituted new security measures for Ohio Stadium. Part of this is a text message alert service, permitting fans to report others for standing during game play.
To control the extra fans, game staff members will be ready to resolve problems instantly and will let fans report issues directly to them from their smartphones. Fans can text ‘BRUTUS’ to 69050 and stadium staff or police will respond to your issue. That includes fans who are misbehaving, swearing, inebriated, or who do not sit during game play. Law enforcement officers add that they want fans to report any suspicious activity.
It’s not clear whether returning to your seat from the bathroom at the worst possible time qualifies under this policy, but it should. Temporary waddle tattoos appear to still be encouraged.
