Former Buckeyes supporting former Buckeyes

Maybe a weak post but thought I'd share anyway. I'm not as active on Twitter as I once was but within minutes of one another this afternoon I noticed two activities that somewhat mirrored one another, both very telling of the "brotherhood" that comes with sports and sports teams.

First, I had randomly fished with the following a couple of days ago on Twitter: "Least favorite B1G football coach out side of Hoke now that Bert Bielema is gone. Go....." I received a few different responses and retweeted a few as a different answer would come in. One individual answered with a simple, "Jim Bollman" and I RT'd it not unlike I had done with the Pelini and Ferentz responses. This afternoon former Buckeye and current Pittsburgh Steeler Mike Adams saw it and responded, starting with, "that's a shame..."

Minutes later my phone alerted me to another interesting one. I had doctored up an old photo of Terrelle Pryor from his OSU days with a message on it a while back, then posted it on Twitter on a whim on June 16th. This afternoon former Buckeye Bret Shugarts apparently saw it and decided to show his support of the message by favoriting the tweet. The photo I had attached to it? .....

Some of you may find it interesting. Others, not so much. I did - so I thought I'd share. Interesting to me how those within the inner circle - who see the bad AND good that goes on in the careers of teammates and coaches, don't quickly waver from their support/opinions no matter what us fans or the public masses think of those in question.

Go Bucks.

I had Jack Mewhort favorite a tweet of mine... When Mike Adams tweeted a picture with his murse, I replied asking if that was Mewhort.

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

Not sure I understand the blind loyalty by any former OSU O-lineman to Bolman.  So many elite O-line recruits came here and improved marginally (if at all) over 4 years.  If Ed Warriner coached the O-line under Tressel, I wonder how much better the team would have been

Well, probably because the man coached them for years and they loved him.

So then is your real name Brandon Fisher or Grant Edgell?
