Bill, I know of three cases where the term "Buckeye" shows up.
1) The case you mentioned, the Buckeye tree, produces a shiny nut that
is polished by believers as a good luck charm.
2) The Common Buckeye is the name of a colorful butterfly, several of
which seem to be passing through my area this year, which I am happy to
3) The Ohio State football team is known as the "Buckeyes", and has
been, at least back to the days of Woody Hayes and his "3 yards and a
cloud of dust" style of power football.
I see no real commonality among the three.

I'm confused. You are referring to a certain butterfly as a Buckeye. My former
in laws, who live in SW Missouri, the part where you hear banjos, have some
kind of nut that they call a Buckeye, and it considered to be a good luck charm.
So what's what?

The Common Buckeye is being seen more frequently around here this
summer. Does this bode well for Ohio State football?
Does OSU football need boding?
