Fan psychology and player mindset play an enormous role in sports — especially when we add tribalism to the equation. Tribalism in sports is nothing new. It’s just that we see and deal with it more than ever because of social media. And when it comes to Buckeye sports (football) we see it weekly! We have to talk about it…
In this episode of Buckeye Focused we discuss fan psychology, tribalism in sports, and player mindset – we even get into those Buckeye losses (Virginia Tech, Oklahoma, Michigan State, Iowa, Purdue, Alabama). That 2014 National Championship season. And way more.
Nate played for the Buckeyes mostly under Coach Jim Tressel between 2007-2011.
