Crazy recruiting stories are nothing new. But Tom Herman's Tuesday in Atlanta takes the cake this year. The OSU offensive coordinator spent 19 hours in his car, traveling a distance of 1.5 miles in 10 hours!
Luckily, he live-tweeted the entire adventure for our pleasure.
Herman eventually left his rental car on the highway and attempted to walk to Hartsfield International Airport before hitching a ride.
So... 19 hrs in my car with hundreds of my closest friends. Too much ice and accidents to move. Gotta make flight to DFW. Call National— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Rental. Tell them I'm leavin the car and start walking the 4 miles to the airport with my luggage. Fall at least five times in first 2 miles— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
Find an gas station. Terry Spiller, my dude, shows up and won't take a dime to take me to the final mile or two to the airport.— Tom Herman (@CoachTomHerman) January 29, 2014
