Jack's On The Record: FSU Over Ohio State...If It Comes To That

Brian Biggane of the Palm Beach Post talked to Jack Nicklaus, who is hosting a charity event at The Bear's Club today and tomorrow, about the dilemma he faces should Florida State and Ohio State win this weekend and advance to the national title game.

Nicklaus' grandson Nick O'Leary is a star tight end for FSU, and Grandpa is one of the rare non-students to dot the eye for his beloved Ohio State Buckeyes.

“I’m an Ohio State guy, but blood is thicker than anything else,” said Nicklaus, who along with wife Barbara attended a kickoff cocktail party Sunday night at The Bear’s Club for the two-day Celebrities Fore Kids Golf Classic.

Sounds like a win for Jack no matter what happens. And of course you always say you are rooting for your relative's team.

Who cares about this old guy? OOOOHHHH WOW Jack is rooting for Fla State. OHHHH MY GOOOD! The impacts my life so much!!!! Whatever.

Based on his futile support of Romney in the most recent presidential election, the Noles should be worried.

Sounds like someone is definitely in need of some quality impaction.

Someone quick, find Chet a date so he'll settle down.

I would pull for my grandson's team instead of my Alma Mater as well. Good luck 'Noles and Nick O'leary! Make JN a proud grandfather! Blood is thicker than a buckeye!
Jack's grand son is not the best tight end in college football. Jace Amaro of Texas Tech has put up many more yards and TDs.
