Damn.  So much dust.

Must be time to change the furnace filter again...  its just not screening the dust like it needs to.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Wow... Can't really see the screen after that.  Continued thoughts and prayers to the entire Tiberi family.
I am always proud to be a Buckeye, But my head is held up much higher after seeing that.

Couldn't be prouder to be a small part of Buckeye Nation after seeing that.

Outside of Ohio, they can say whatever they want but that is pure class! Another reason why I'm proud to be a Buckeye!

Damn, if that doesn't make you proud of our young men, then nothing will.  Well done Buckeyes!
Our family's continued prayers for the Tiberi family.

Really grateful Dom could have that moment.  I'm sure it will mean a lot to him as he reflects on his loss and tries to get back to work at the same time.  Really, really sad situation.  One always has to be grateful to have family and community help you through tough times, as I'm sure Dom is.  Awesome display from our team.  Proud to be a Buckeye through thick and thin!

Damn Proud to be a Buckeye after watching it..

People wonder why we are crazy about our colleges and college sports in general, it's because of things like this. Hearing the victory bell ringing in the background, the crowd still singing OSU's praises, young men who just played their toughest game to date taking the time to hug a man some of them don't know to show him their respects for his daughter who passed away too young, our star QB having a personal moment with Dom ... damn I love this game.

Goddamn, this team just pulled me in.

This makes me very proud to be a Buckeye! The more I witness what this coaching staff and the players do for people, the more respect I have for them. I can't even imagine what it would do to me if I lost one of my daughters.

Wow.  That was the coolest thing I have ever seen.  Having a daughter and knowing how much she means to me, I know I would be a broken man if I were in Dom's shoes right now.  That had to be one of the most touching things for him to have those kids do that.  Well done!

I love winning, but this action is more valuable than any win will ever be. Well done, players, parents and coaches.

I don't care what happens at the end of the season but this group of young men have totally blown out of the water what it means to be a team and how to be a respectable men. This team and the coaching staff are showing me how to take being a buckeye to the next level. Bravo bravo.

Very classy!! Words don't give the video justice!!

Having not grown up in Oho, attended tOSU, as well as being an extremely new fan, I wasn't familiar with Dom.  I saw the story on Bleacher Report, and just watched the video a few minutes ago.
WOW.  Amazing video, super classy and genuine move by these players.  Although I'm a newly minted Buckeye fan, I'm incredibly proud to call myself a fan after watching this.  Well done, Buckeyes, well done.

Dom Tiberi is a much loved man here in Columbus and a down to earth genuinely nice guy. The one time I spoke to him proves that. We are all in his corner. Welcome back Dom and Go Bucks!

One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.

Wow. Proud to be part of this family.

THAT was just great!  I pray for that man and his family!

Great video and a classy move by all the players. You could tell Dom greatly appreciated it. Then you have people like this journalist... wow. Good to see Buckeye journalists backing Dom up.

Talk about backpedaling on his Twitter feed. Even fellow UM journalists called him out.

What a douchbag. He assumes it was a planed "good thing". The idiot can't see it was a spontaneous action caught on tape as the team returned to the locker room after the game.

gobucks96's picture

why would even think about saying anything negative on this... Total loser..

unholy bucknut's picture

Heart warming stuff. Dom won't forget that  as long as he lives im sure.

On the video Philly Brown was the first to hug Dom and everyone followed suit.
 A little tidbit noticed during the heartfelt greeting. When Mike Mitchell hugged Dom, I noticed he was not wearing shoulder pads. Since there has been no report of an injury, I surmise that indicates a freshman redshirt. Allowing Mike, Mickey and Morgan Mitchell all to be at Ohio State at the same time.
