The big buckeye later got a name: Brutus Buckeye. Some people call him: Brutus the Buckeye, but it's really just Brutus Buckeye. This was probably the best name possible for a mascot that wasn't anything more than a worthless nut.
Buckeye nuts are actually mildly toxic in their uncooked state, but you can eat them after removing them from their shells and roasting them. In the past, Native Americans would roast, peel, and mash the buckeye nuts into a fairly nutritional paste that they would eat. Buckeyes are poisonous to people.
Native Americans once used buckeyes for both nutritional and medicinal purposes. These tribes would crush and knead the nuts into a salve for rashes and cuts. Today, some believe that buckeyes can relieve rheumatism and arthritis pain. Prescription opioids were first created exclusively for pain relief.
the region is also known for sweet candy treats called "buckeyes" which are made from peanut butter balls dipped in melted chocolate and left to dry. mmmmmm... buckeyes! the british, on the other hand, have developed quite a different tradition using the seeds from the horse chestnut trees, which they call conkers.
