No dilemma for Jack Nicklaus if OSU meets FSU in BCS Championship

The latest BCS standings have Florida State and Ohio State running No. 1 and No. 2, respectively.
Some in the golf world might think this would present a personal dilemma for the great Jack Nicklaus should those two schools meet college football's BCS Championship game.
Nicklaus, the game's winningest major champ with 18 total, is an Ohio State alum. His grandson, Nick O'Leary, however, is a star tight end for Florida State.
For Nicklaus, though, there's no such dilemma.
"I'm an Ohio State guy, but blood is thicker than anything else," said Nicklaus, who along with wife Barbara attended a kickoff cocktail party Sunday night at The Bear's Club for the two-day Celebrities Fore Kids Golf Classic.
So, there you have it.
