No, not the in-office type. We’re talking college rivalries. 

For September’s Rep Corner, we talk with Midmark rep Bill Rumple, who happened to have the responsibility of being The Ohio State University’s Brutus the Buckeye mascot. Some of the highlights of Rumple’s Brutus career included:

  • Brutus on The College Edition of Jeopardy when the network taped the show at OSU.
  • Brutus at the 2003 National Championship game, where The Ohio State University beat Miami University.
  • Brutus at the filming of the Capital One Mascot Challenge commercial that aired on ABC during one football and Super Bowl season. (“They flew all of the mascots to New York City and Miami to film the commercials. I got to do the worm across Times Square!”)
  • Brutus at the 100th football game between The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan.


We’ve got our fair share of college loyalties at MDSI. Just a quick jog around the office and you’ll find:

  • A Bulldog
  • Another Buckeye (notice the 2006 football is missing a game against a certain SEC team?)
  • And a Crimson Tide fan


Everybody is just about ready for next week’s kickoff to college football.

Comments are closed.


Who do you think will win in the Monday Night BCS game?

  • The Tide (57%)
  • The Irish (43%)
