Marshall Ohio Battle for the Bell

The Battle for the Bell dates back to 1905, when the Marshall Thundering Herd and the Ohio Bobcats, located merely 80 or so miles apart, met in Huntington, West Virginia.  Marshall clawed out a 6-5 victory in that meeting.  The Bell was first introduced in 1997 and while Ohio leads the overall series 30-19-6, Marshall has been the dominate team of late, winning the Bell in nine out of eleven games.  A brief hiatus ensued when Marshall left the MAC for Conference USA in 2005, but after an unexpected meeting in the 2009 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, the two teams signed a six year contract to bring the game back.  This year’s battle pits a 1-1 Marshall team against a 2-0 Ohio team with votes in the polls and its eyes on an undefeated season.

For some people warmer weather means it’s time to wear nothing but flip-flops for the next few months.  While that’s fine if you live on the beach, a better summer footwear option is the white buck shoe.  Originally crafted from deerskin (hence the name), bucks began life in the 1800’s as a shoe for tennis.  Eventually they were adopted by the preppy set for dressier occasions and have been the summer shoe of choice ever since.  The shoes even gave rise to the term “white shoe firm” to describe many of the leading professional service firms and their WASP-y stereotypes.  Traditionally white bucks come with a brick red rubber sole but these days you’ll find all sorts of other options.  Make sure to invest in a suede brush to keep your bucks scuff free all summer long.
