The Civil War Trophy Returns!

With everything I have going on personally this week, I haven't talked much about this weekend's Civil War.  But there is big news on that front today.  The Civil War trophy is back.

In case you hadn't heard, the Platypus Trophy was awarded to the Civil War winner from 1959-1961, after which it was stolen from an OSU trophy case.  It disappeared until 2004, when it was found in a pile in a Mac Court closet.

Well, this year, the trophy is being returned to its rightful place.  The winner of the Civil War gets the Platypus Trophy.  And the biggest college rivalry without a trophy gets its trophy back.  The sweetness of this cannot be overstated.

I don't know why it has been so long since a Civil War trophy has been awarded.  But I know that I want it displayed in the Casanova Center for a long, long time.

The platypus will be ours!
