Carson Palmer doesn't hate Ohio State that that much. Honest
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback, and an alum of Southern Cal, Carson Palmer changes his tune just a bit about Ohio State football. Palmer said he was speaking as a USC fan. He told the Columbus Dispatch: "I really do respect the Buckeyes, and I know their fans are passionate, too. I hope they all understand I'm just looking forward to a big game for my school against a very tough opponent, and that it's all in the good fun of a rivalry. You don't have a real rivalry unless both sides are great teams."
Here is the previous link to the audio portion of Carson's rant. You decide how serious he was. And if this isn't enough for you, check out USC coach Pete Carroll shirtless during some sort of chant session.
